TheKidWho Don't believe the FUD (488 comments)

Linux Users Banned From Diablo III Servers

TheKidWho Re:Jesus, stop being pathetic! (518 comments)

DARPA Pays $3.5 Million For New TechShops and Secret Reconfigurable Factories

TheKidWho Re:I keep reading but... (116 comments)

I know how these things work, I'm a manufacturing engineer and program 5 axis machines on a daily basis. The work has to have significant constraints placed on it for it to work easily with a robotic system however. Frequently this is not possible.

TheKidWho Re:Precision manufacturing assembly lines... (116 comments)

The amount of capital outlay required to do something like that is immense. It's simply not cost effective except for certain product lines.

TheKidWho Re:near unlimited range thanks to in-air refueling (400 comments)

You can't turn an F-22 Airframe into an effective Bomber, it wasn't designed for it from the beginning. The requirements of a bomber and an air superiority fighter are vastly different.

Google Earns $2 Per Handset; Apple, $575

TheKidWho Re:$575? Seriously? (366 comments)

They do it for market segmentation. There are people willing to pay $40/$70 for that cover and there are people that aren't. For the people that aren't, you can buy 3rd party stuff for much cheaper. It's a smart business decision and works well for them, also allowing a thriving third party market to exist.
