Symbha Re:Haven't you learned anything? (397 comments)

How the PC Is Making Consoles Look Out of Date

Symbha Re:Not only graphics (568 comments)

I gotta say, you really seemed to have missed the point.

I would much prefer to sit on the couch, and play a shooter on the 60" against other people sitting on their couches, with the exact same hardware that I have. Even if it means I can't aim quite as good as I could with the keyboard and mouse. But not if the games on my pc look so much better.

Amazon Pulling Out of Texas Over $269 Million Tax Bill

Symbha Re:Normally - Equity (811 comments)

No, you simply don't tax basic necessities. You don't tax utilities, food, and public transit. Things people need to function in modern society, and take part in democracy/government.

You sales tax everything else, and things with a social cost, like drugs and alcohol more.
(I would also argue luxuries at a higher rate, but that's the commie in me.)

Meg Whitman Campaign Shows How Not To Use Twitter

Symbha Re:It's not "for whatever reason" (147 comments)

> All you "internet marketers", forget it - people's eyes glaze over after the 1,000th message - it doesn't even stay in short-term memory.

Yep, because twitter and facebook are not about reading (or information gathering) they are about self expression.
Everyone's a writer nowadays, nobody is reading...

Big Brother In the School Cafeteria?

Symbha Re:Big Brother? Not Quite. (425 comments)

People aren't willing to pay for healthy... THAT is the problem.
Fresh fruits and vegetables are a boatload more expensive the subsidized high fructose corn syrup, and processed industrial food.

This is how ketchup became a vegetable.
