Galaxy Nexus Designed To Avoid Infringing Apple Patents

The Dawn Of Time Re:Galaxy SII (226 comments)

You still seem to be confused. There are very few people who are unsatisfied with the iPhone, as evidenced by the ever-increasing sales and amazing brand loyalty.

Sure, there exists a vocal group of nerds who continue to insist that because the iPhone is not perfect for their every need, no one actually likes it, but that's hatred blinding them, not a reflection of some deeper reality.

The Dawn Of Time Re:Proof positive (226 comments)

Ah, kill people so you can freely use the work of others. You, sir, have made a very compelling case as to why you are entitled to do whatever you want.

You didn't bother supporting your conclusion with any statements in your post, so I'll assume you're an idealist and I won't waste my time arguing with you, but I will note that I disagree.

Will Apple Let Siri and Apps Connect?

The Dawn Of Time Re:sir, can I use my phone? (185 comments)

Oh, you bought this phone? And you didn't research first if you would be able to do the things you want? I mean with practically no effort at all you could very easily have found out this device doesn't do what you want it to do natively. Apple is very upfront about the development environment for iOS.

Or are you just stretching a lie to make your non-point? I'm suspecting that one, given the whole "I'm entitled to everything I want" attitude that seems to prevail around here.

No Tab Relocation Coming For Chrome

The Dawn Of Time Re:No, the problem is "UI designers". (574 comments)

You live in a weird world if you think the UIs of old were "usable" in any sense of the word. I'm not surprised to come across such retardation here on Slashdot, where a vocal chunk of you think computer reached its nadir in the 70s... but it still gets me that you actually might really feel this way against all available evidence.

Or if you need the car analogy, it's the same reason that you can't win an F1 race with your Civic Hybrid.

I'm not sure why it's necessary to enable a mom-and-pop shop to compete with the likes of Samsung and Apple. That's kinda like being upset that a Pop Warner center wouldn't be able to play in the NFL.

There is no particular right to do the business you want to do, just the business you're capable of doing.

The Dawn Of Time Re:Proof positive (226 comments)

So let me get this straight - wholesale copying of someone else's effort is innovation, and changing things so that your product is different than a competitor's product is needless?

This is insight? To who, 10 year olds?

Android Ice Cream Sandwich SDK Released

The Dawn Of Time Re:Continuous Voice Input (309 comments)

They're only "outright lying" if you take an overly strict interpretation based on assumption, as you did.

Feel free to believe whatever you want, of course. I'm not here to tell you that you aren't allowed to be dead wrong about stuff. This is Slashdot, where there are no bounds on the stupidity you can bring to the table in the name of being smarter than everyone else.

Real 3D Display; 3 Years Out?

The Dawn Of Time Re:Time unique in reference frame (191 comments)

Wouldn't time have the be the 1st dimension? I suppose you could have spatial dimensions without time, but there would be no way to observe them.

Investors Campaign To Oust Murdochs From News Corp

The Dawn Of Time Re:Tech news? (150 comments)

It's a Slashdotter masturbation frenzy. Everyone will get in with a comment about how they're so smart for not believe anything on Fox news, and they'll try to top each other in contests of cleverness by substituting "Faux" for "Fox" because nothing impresses the ladies like snide misspellings.

Iran Tried and Failed To Launch a Monkey Into Space

The Dawn Of Time Re:Congratulations for trying! (272 comments)

I'm sure, if that were necessary to have prepared, the US military could have it set up. They're awfully good at logistics and weapons delivery systems.

Ask Slashdot: Which Android Phone (and Carrier) For WiFi Proxy Support?

The Dawn Of Time Re:Perhaps... (125 comments)

Nothing like watering down the meaning of the word "evil" to "I don't like having to pay for phone service."

Continuing the Distributed DNS System

The Dawn Of Time Go figure (77 comments)

"We'd like you to work hard to spread free entertainment" isn't a compelling cause. Who would have guessed that.

Amazon Bypassing Publishers By Signing Authors Directly

The Dawn Of Time yay idealists. (461 comments)

Yeah except authors like to do things like "eat" and "wear clothes" and "have somewhere to live" and I'm guessing you can't afford to provide that for all of them, so we needed another system while the technology caught up.

What Happens When the Average Lifespan is 150 Years?

The Dawn Of Time Re:Toh-may-tow / poh-tah-toh (904 comments)

That's cool and all, "live" all you want - but don't go bitching that you don't have that good life you "deserve."

Is Apple Pushing Away Professionals?

The Dawn Of Time Re:Define professionals? (556 comments)

The single menu bar is, to me, garbage, and I say this as a Mac user. Love on the idea of an infinite target till the end of time, but the modern mouse is a precision tool and it doesn't require significantly more effort or time to hit an in-window menu.

Look Ma, I'm Getting Arrested!

The Dawn Of Time Re:Corporate shills! (238 comments)

I have a serious problem with anyone who believes I must act for the benefit of society as a whole, not the least part of which no one is qualified to judge that benefit.
