Mercedes Pooh-Poohs Tesla, Says It Has "Limited Potential"

Tough Love Re:Yeah? (332 comments)

Mass adoption of electric cars is inevitable as soon as electric cars consistently outperform gasoline at a similar price point, which in turn is inevitable. Until then things will move in fits and starts, and for now, "limited" accurately describes the markets. But Daimler-benz would be nuts to deny that the writing on the wall. I suppose they feel the time is right for a bit of FUD.

Microsoft Confirms It Is Dropping Windows 8.1 Support

Tough Love Re:Bullet, meet foot (571 comments)

A timely reminder why users should stick with a stable, proven OS such as Win7...

Interesting spin on it. The rest of the world seems to perceive it as a timely reminder that they should be seeking any way they can to escape Microsoft's tentacles as soon as possible.

The New 'One Microsoft' Is Finally Poised For the Future

Tough Love Re:doubt it (270 comments)

...He is planning on making windows Azure the platform that runs the internet, and making a ton of revenue that way...

Their only hope is to bulldoze the Windows servers and put in nice Linux clusters like everybody else. Otherwise, the inevitable result will be high comedy. Except for those unfortunate victims who decide to throw their corporate fortunes in with Microsoft's big system expertise.

The New 'One Microsoft' Is Finally Poised For the Future

Tough Love Re:Let's use a sailng metaphor (270 comments)

I was saddened to see Ballmer go. I felt that all the Microsoft toadies richly deserved him. It would have been nice to see him go down with the ship, but I knew in my heart what rats do when the water starts rising. I sincerely hope that Nadella proves himself fully worthy to fill Ballmer's clown shoes.

Tough Love Poised for the past (270 comments)

Nothing about Microsoft has changed except its PR spin. It remains the same morally bankrupt skofflaw monopolist it has always been. Puff piece.

Navy Debuts New Railgun That Launches Shells at Mach 7

Tough Love Re:IANA Physicist, So... (630 comments)

Regarding the background: that is an incredibly high-speed camera, being rotated at a very high speed (think "on a spring")...

Most probably multiple cameras, prepositioned and synchronized.

...there are plenty of things that burn without oxygen simply because there are lots of other oxidizers...

I do not think that the word "oxidizer" means what you think it does.

Samsung Claims Breakthrough In Graphene Chip Design

Tough Love Re:Producing them is one thing (88 comments)

Producing them cheaply enough to rival chips made of processed sand is another matter entirely....

So we move on to processed coal, seems cheap to me.

EU Should Switch To ODF Standard, Says MEP

Tough Love Re:Why switch to that Euro-weenie format? (111 comments)

Red Hat has nothing to do with ODF.

Neither do Google, Facebook, Amazon, Twitter or Samsung. Shameful.
