Cancer Cured By HIV

TheVidiot I'm not part of your system! (521 comments)

I'm in the hospital with my so-called doctor,

and takes his syringe and says

"This is a cure for cancer!"

And I said "Maaaaan this isn't a cancer cure, it's HIV!"

So I took it and I threw it on the ground!

US Government Using PS3s To Break Encryption

TheVidiot Nice move Sony (570 comments)

Nice that Sony took out the ability to install Linux on the slim PS3. How hard could it have been to have a left the feature in that is useful in a number of ways? Of course, they have recently announced the ability to post trophy acquisitions to Facebook.... but they take 'Other OS' support out?!

Game Over For Sony and Open Source?

TheVidiot Re:It didn't bring people to the platform (364 comments)

You could not develop for the PS3 by using on-board Linux. There's a Cell SDK available, but that's about it.

Game Over For Sony and Open Source?

TheVidiot They crippled it (364 comments)

I run Yellow Dog 6.2 on my PS3, and it isn't too bad for web browsing (superior to the PS3 browser) and checking email, among other computing tasks. They crippled access to the full graphics capability of the machine, however, which created a much slower experience that you would expect. Perhaps Sony should put more effort into putting common computing tasks into their XMB... add an email client and improve the browser, at least.
