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 (472 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 (472 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.. (566 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.. ;)

Lockheed Claims Breakthrough On Fusion Energy Project

SuperDre hmm.. (566 comments)

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..

US Revamping Its Nuclear Arsenal

SuperDre f-ing hypocrits... (342 comments)

Telling other countries they cannot have nuclear weapons, but keep on building themselves.. what a bunch of f-ing hypocrits....

I don't like North korea or Iran having nuclear weapons, but if the US has them and keeps on making them, then I won't blame those countries for trying to create some themselves..

If the US is really serious about other countries not having nuclear weapons, then they should stop making them themselves and ditch the ones they have.. otherwise it's just a bunch of crap..

New "Crescent Bay" VR Headset Revealed and Demo'd At Oculus Connect

SuperDre Re: Slashdot Hate Machine (65 comments)

really? well at least they haven't for DK2.. and DK1 is not compatible with DK2 or the CV1. So if you are actually serious in developing for the CV1, than you better dump the DK1 and go with the DK2..

New "Crescent Bay" VR Headset Revealed and Demo'd At Oculus Connect

SuperDre a long way to go.. (65 comments)

I own a DK2, but even if it's superior to anything else that was/is on the market for under $1000, it still needs a lot of work. Having seen the new prototype, it sure looks ugly like hell, also the headphones really look like the crap you get on a plane.. Compare that to the full headset you got on the forte VFX-1 (which IMHO is still one of the most comfortable HMD's ever, especially with it's flipup visor).. Also with the DK2 there really isn't any good calibration, which it certainly needs to try and get rid of motion sickness, as a wrong IPD can induce it.. Most headsets I've used had much better adjustments as the DK2 (you could adjust left right eye independantly on the X, Y and Z axe).. But one thing as a DK2 owner is ofcourse their unveiling of the new prototype so soon after the release of the DK2.. But I don't think there will be a DK3 before the release of the CV1, well at least not until a few weeks before the release of CV1, because if they are going to release DK3 this year, I'll be very pissed..

Star Wars Producers Want a 'DroneShield' To Prevent Leaks On Set

SuperDre good example.. (138 comments)

This is a good example why drones should be banned.. Now it's trying to get some eyes on filming of a big budget movie, but drones can (and are) also be used to peeping tom..
Whenever I see a drone over my property, it'll receive a nice buckshot.. Oh sorry I've mistaken it for my claypigeon..
Drones are nothing more than an RC airplane, and where I live you cannot fly those over populated area's, only on special assigned area's (mostly farmland)..
Because people can fly a simple drone with a camera now, doesn't mean people should be allowed to..
