Lessons Learned From Google's Green Energy Bust

SuperDre it just means..... (212 comments)

it just means they didn't have the right people doing the project....... And having money doesn't mean you can 'invent' something. Sometimes it's just the pennyless loner that invents the holy grail, not a well funded science team.. A lot of times those teams are held back by their fixed thinking...

Ars Dissects Android's Problems With Big Screens -- Including In Lollipop

SuperDre weird... (103 comments)

I never understood why they placed the home/back buttons in newer releases in the middle of the screen, it just didn't make any sense.. How hard was it to even think about larger tablets or have people being able to choose the position..
For me, with every new incarnation of any OS, it seems to get more stupid and babylike interface..

Police Body Cam Privacy Exploitation

SuperDre hypocrits (301 comments)

Well, the people publishing those video's on youtube are the ones that are the biggest hypocrits on the planet..
And even if it was recorded by a police officer, doesn't mean you can just publish the video without consent of the people being filmed, especially if there is a commercial reason for publishing it.. and certainly in this case there seems to be a commercial reason..
Well, why not follow these people who post these video's and post their lives when they are not at their best on youtube, I guess then they would scream and cry themselves...

Cool, so you admit that US law also shouldn't go beyond their own borders, even though the US wants the rest of the world to obey their laws outside the US..

The Airplane of the Future May Not Have Windows

SuperDre uhh, not so great.. (286 comments)

Now you can just close the curtain if you don't want to look outside, but with this system it's not possible.. And what about if you're affright of heights, great ride then... Problem with this is, yes it might be fun for some, but it might be terror for others.. Personally I think I wouldn't like it to see the sky/ground like this all around me when I have to sit for 11 hours.. Yes it might be fun for a few minutes..

Here's Why Apple Rejected Your iOS App

SuperDre Ridiculous (145 comments)

If they reject your app, they can tell you exactly why they reject it.. So why the F don't they do it, it's just ridiculous not to tell the exact reason..

The Classic Control Panel In Windows May Be Gone

SuperDre uhhh... no.... (347 comments)

I really don't like the new UI PC Settings, it's missing about every option one might need to control, at least if you are even a bit serious about configuring your PC..
Just keep the old screen for people who know what they are doing, and the other crap for people who actually never have to use it...

Manga Images Depicting Children Lead to Conviction in UK

SuperDre Re:Ridiculous (475 comments)

But these aren't photo's, these are drawings.. Yes in regard to real photo's it should always be illegal, but where do we draw the line with fiction..
It's illegal to kill a person, but yet we can draw it, we can watch movies where people kill, we can even play computer games doing it, but oh no then it's no problem.. But ooohhhh, it's a drawn (or rendered) picture of a ficticious young looking person, who the F cares, as long as no real person is used and hurt then people can do whatever they want if I'm concerned..
It's the persons who make real childporn and abuse real children that should be caught and punished... But then again, there are enough countries where it's no problem to marry and rape (oh sorry I mean consumate the marriage) a 9 year old....
It's all just a bunch of f-ing hypocrits....
It's just like the americans, oh no problem to show blood and mayhem on tv, but oh as soon as only a partial nipple is seen then the shit hits the fan.......

Manga Images Depicting Children Lead to Conviction in UK

SuperDre Ridiculous (475 comments)

This is when people just go too far.. It's a f-ing drawing, it's not real..
This just tells me the people who made these laws are really in need of some psychotherapie if they think these drawings should be forbidden.. What's next, put people in jail just for what they are thinking?

Michigan About To Ban Tesla Sales

SuperDre what? (294 comments)

The bill was modified without any opportunity for public comment

How is that even possible in a real democracy?
This is just illegal IMHO..
But then also comes to mind, why can't a car manufacturer have it's own "dealer", but a company like Apple can?

Lockheed Claims Breakthrough On Fusion Energy Project

SuperDre Re:hmm.. (571 comments)

But appearantly Lockheed has, as they will build and test one next year.. and why would you really need to upscale a 100MW reactor at the size mentioned, that's more then enough for 100.000 homes.. Hell, instead of scaling up, they should try to scale it down, So you just put one into your basement like it's a washer/dryer.. ;)

If they can build and test it within a year, why would it still take about 10 years to actually produce an operational one..

Miss a Payment? Your Car Stops Running

SuperDre Good (907 comments)

Yes, there will always be some cases that might be a shame, but in most cases it's a great tool..
Personally I really don't believe the story of the system switching off the engine while driving.
But 3 days late on a payment is a bit soon IMHO for such a measure. But then again, it IS in the contract the person signed with the company..
And well, car not starting when she needed to go to the emergency room, what would she have done if it wasn't the system, but a real malfunction.. And wouldn't it have been cheaper to just call a cab if it really was an emergency (or an ambulance)..
Ofcourse people to which something like this happens always have a story.. Just pay the damn loan, you're in exactly the same position as when you wouldn't have a car at all..
So I don't have any sympathy for people like this, they knew what would happen if they didn't pay on time (but as I said, I think 3 days is a bit too soon, IMHO it should give a warning (from the first day) that within a week the car won't start if payment hasn't been received)..

Google Partners With HTC For Latest Nexus Tablet

SuperDre 10"? (74 comments)

But I don't want a small 9" tablet, I want at least 10" or an 11" Nexus tablet. with small bezels (at least as small as my current Xoom Wifi)..

At the moment there isn't a great 10" tablet which is just as simple looking but rugged quality. I would like the back to be of the same rubbery kind as the nexus 5, that has a soft feel, and even with a bit of sweaty palms still stays in your hands.. And no hardware buttons other than on/off switch on the back (like the xoom) and a volume control..
