top Geoengineered Climate Cooling With Microbubbles
What could possible go wrong............. We don't even have the computerpower to precisely predict the weather, and they think they can change the climate with this without real consequences?
top Top Five Theaters Won't Show "The Interview" Sony Cancels Release
This really is a sad day, those moronic scriptkiddies have won..
I really hope they can catch the persons who did this, and who made the threats. The should get life in prison if it were up to me (well actually they should just get the deathpenalty if it was really up to me)... These morons ruined the lives of a lot of hardworking people..
top Economists Say Newest AI Technology Destroys More Jobs Than It Creates
This is nothing new, we already knew this 10-20 years ago, hell even before that.. It's time to really start thinking about how to transform our society to one which isn't reliant on having a job (as most jobs will in the near future be replaced with AI/robots)..
top Sony Reportedly Is Using Cyber-Attacks To Keep Leaked Files From Spreading
As far as I know it's not exactly the whole site they are targetting, but the specified files by seeding corrupt packages.. That's a completely different story then the mediahorny/clickbait story that is told here...
top China Plans Superheavy Rocket, Ups Reliability
That's something I've always wondered, they're already busy with the rocket, so why would it still need almost 14 years to get the damn thing off the ground...
top The Sony Pictures Hack Was Even Worse Than Everyone Thought
Well, security is all nice, but there are always systemadministrators which have access to everything.. And in this case it's certain, they got help from inside, and then it's a lot harder to do good security..
top Ask Slashdot: Convincing My Company To Stop Using Passwords?
And you don't think the other methods won't have the same problems? you don't think you will see printed images on monitors for the graphical 'passwords'? also with 2 factor, how many people will loose their account for the token.. (yes 2 factor is slightly more secure ofcourse, but it certainly isn't as safe/monkeyproof as some people seem to think)
top Consumer-Grade SSDs Survive Two Petabytes of Writes
How many units of each type did they test? because if they only tested one of each, you cannot make any assumptions about and can't even call it a good test.. I've seen so many different results with the same HDD's.. Or even with SDD's, where my SDD died after a couple of months, but the one of my collegue is still plowing away after 2 years (SDD's from the same batch)..
top Gangnam Style Surpasses YouTube's 32-bit View Counter
Or they could just have interpreted the 32-bit integer as an unsigned 32-bit integer, and go on for a long long time.. As the # of views can never be negative..
top Two Google Engineers Say Renewables Can't Cure Climate Change
because 2 so called PhD's say it isn't a solution, that definitly means it isn't a solution... NOT!
How many times have we seen so called PhD's not agreeing with each other even after a huhum 'good study'.. Because those 2 couldn't figure it out, doesn't mean it isn't possible...
top Complex Life May Be Possible In Only 10% of All Galaxies
They can't even find all the living organisms on this planet or in our own solar system, or even know how our own galaxy is even created, and they think they know only 10% of all galaxies have 'complex life' as on earth? Please get real.. We're not even a spec in our own galaxy, and I'm very confidend that in our own galaxy there are more 'complex life' out there than 10%.. let alone the much MUCH bigger galaxies...
top Multiple Manufacturers Push Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars, But Can They Catch Tesla?
yeah, but by the time you have decend hydrogen stations where you can actually refill your car, the electric cars already have new batteries that have the same mileage with a fuelingtime of a few minutes.. And let's not forget, hydrogen isn't the safest fuel there is, but I would assume those tanks are safer than regular gasolinetanks...
top NASA Offering Contracts To Encourage Asteroid Mining
We don't need no stinking permission from NASA to mine any moon or asteroid...
top Alva Noe: Don't Worry About the Singularity, We Can't Even Copy an Amoeba
And he calls himself a professor? I guess he's way off base..
Smarter as us doesn't mean it has to understand what it's talking about (most politicians don't know jack what they are talking about and still they 'make' the rules).. And let's not forget, with neural networks, AI can advance much faster than a regular person, and also let's not forget, there are way more advanced projects going on in laboratories than IBM's Watson, which haven't been shown to the public.. IBM's Watson is just the tip of the iceberg.. I sometimes wonder how these "professors" got their degree, sometimes I just wonder if those positions come with a box of cereal...
top Lessons Learned From Google's Green Energy Bust
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...
top Ars Dissects Android's Problems With Big Screens -- Including In Lollipop
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..
top Police Body Cam Privacy Exploitation
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...
top Pianist Asks Washington Post To Remove Review Under "Right To Be Forgotten"
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..

top A Mysterious Piece of Russian Space Junk Does Maneuvers
It's not like the US hasn't got their secret crap up there... So it's ver hypcritical to judge the russians...

top The Airplane of the Future May Not Have Windows
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..
