Samsung's Position On Tizen May Hurt Developer Recruitment

Tough Love Re:So ... (92 comments)

I'm afraid that's your wish rather than reality.

It would appear to be reality judging from Apple's shrinking market share. For kids, Apple products are something your mom has.

Samsung's Position On Tizen May Hurt Developer Recruitment

Tough Love Re:So ... (92 comments)

Fast forward to 2014. Apple's products have become dated and uninspiring.

Tough Love Re:So ... (92 comments)

Haha, no. It is quite elementary that sacrificing market share while increasing prices is a fine recipe for short term gain and long term pain.

Russia Writes Off 90 Percent of North Korea Debt

Tough Love Re:I'm liking how Russia is standing up these days (234 comments)

America certainly has it's issues but Putin seems determined to turn Russia into a nuclear armed banana republic. Look at this list. Russia, styling itself a great power, has impoverished its people to a state worse than Croatia and 56 other countries. Not far ahead of Botswana. Amazing power, that.

Russia Writes Off 90 Percent of North Korea Debt

Tough Love Re:I'm liking how Russia is standing up these days (234 comments)

Rather... I am impressed as to how well Putin is acting in Russia's best interests...

Is it in Russia's best interest to become isolated as an international pariah and have its economy shrink?

Russia Writes Off 90 Percent of North Korea Debt

Tough Love Re:THROUGH North Korea?! (234 comments)

They wouldn't want to offend Russia, because Russia would stop the flow of gas they're siphoning off.

You're making the mistake of presuming rational behavior.

Tough Love Re:I don't think so (234 comments)

It's $11 Billion. I know that sounds like a lot, but it's not really. Not on a Global scale...

It's .5% of Russia's GDP. Sounds like a lot to me.

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

Tough Love Re:Yeah? (359 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 (575 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.

Microsoft security, the gift that just keeps on giving. Note the elapsed times between vulnerability publication and update.

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.
