TemplePilot Prejudiced against bigots (1 comments)

Simple solution, bigoted countries can just geoblock those gTLD strings. Problem solved. But no, they have to have a costly viscous all out war over every little scrap, cause they're pissants like that.

Legitimate eBook Lending Community Closed After Copyright Complaints

TemplePilot What is an eBook? (288 comments)

I guess that settles it. I'll consign myself to buying up whatever dead tree editions I can; and completely forget about buying any eReader or eBooks if these "Authors Guild" idiots are going to be a rabid crowd of money mongers. Unionized writers and publishing houses, like these belong on a do not buy list. And so the world grows smaller once again. Thanks to Greed.

Why the Tablet Market is Really the iPad Market

TemplePilot Re:People want cheaper tablets (657 comments)

Pay no mind to Apple shills. iPad is just another greedy shit. Consumers want what consumers want. And for the most part we want to pick and choose the things we need for our little fiefdoms at reasonable price points. We do not want this so called vendor lockin crap. Nor do we want to be babied by control freak app stores.

Text is a hella lot more efficient IMHO. Then again I live in IRC, so I guess it goes without saying. The great equalizer is balanced by the mind behind the fingers.

TV +Sets+Are+Connected+To+Internet+In+38%25+Of+Homes

TemplePilot TemplePilot writes  |  more than 2 years ago

TemplePilot writes "Interconnectness of SmartTV's in homes are rising with 38% reported by MCN, a trend thats likely to increase as more consumers purchase DLNA and WiFi capable home entertainment centers. This could also be a wake up call for big content providers as convergence technology cascades through the world and more consumers are tempted to adopt cord cutting measures while in pursuit of on-demand and over the top service, choice, flexibility and personalization for their entertainment needs."
