New Nail Polish Alerts Wearers To Date Rape Drugs

TadMSTR Re:A few issues with this... (595 comments)

Have you got any better ideas for a subtle way of testing a drink? A finger is a lot more discreet than a paper strip. Try explaining why you are dipping a paper strip into your drink without accusing the guy of being a rapist. Slipping your finger in the drink is much less noticeable and almost no one will question it. This can be casually done many ways, for instance sticking your index finger in the glass while grabbing around the brim (not uncommon). The idea of the nail polish, applied before going out, is that it gives a woman a discreet way to test her drink. If it tests positive she can then covertly escape without alerting the guy that she found him out.

Samsung Hires Steve 'Cyanogen' Kondik

TadMSTR Re:Just like MS (177 comments)

I don't think Steve Kondik is the type that would stop supporting what he started. Plus there are a bunch of other devs that also work on it. Samsung gave 5 of the CyanogenMod devs free Galaxy S2 phones and only asked that they make CyanogenMod work on it. Hiring Steve may allow for Samsung to ship their phones already running CyanogenMod. That gives them 1up on other vendors, hardware that officially supports CyanogenMod.

Google's Reach Hits Your Tivo

TadMSTR Google is being clever (98 comments)

If they are able to provide target ads for viewers, this could be good for digital video distribution. This market really needs to go and improve. Cable TV is too overpriced for the "content" they provide. We put the phone on the internet and now its time to put the TV there as well.

States Claim There is No Match for Microsoft

TadMSTR Re:So help me understand.. (533 comments)

MS does have a habit of spreading FUD about Linux. They claimed Linux infringes on ~235 of their patents but still won't say what they are. There are plenty of other examples but I'm too tired right now.
