Rise of the Super-High-Res Notebook Display

TuckerBag 16:10 fan, for actual work (333 comments)

For actual work I like 16:10, preferably at a resolution of 1920 x 1200 or greater and on a 24" display. I find 1080p is really annoying for work, and I haven't updated my monitor for YEARS as a result. I do a lot of "CAD stuff". My personal preferences always seem to be in the minority. Why can't I just be normal?

Obama on Surveillance: "We Can and Must Be More Transparent"

TuckerBag Cowards (537 comments)

Why aren't Google, Apple et. al. doing the same as Lavabit and Silent Circle? They should shut down until they are happy that their customers are happy with what they are doing.

Google Glass: What's With All the Hate?

TuckerBag The people at Google are not stupid. (775 comments)

It will be interesting to see what happens with google glass. Even if they release a product with no camera, the media will still report it as a privacy invading device.

Judge Slams Apple-Motorola Suit As 'Business Strategy'

TuckerBag Mod the Judge up (140 comments)

Sounds like a sensible response from the judge. But what is the long term solution here? Maybe there needs to be a mechanism for disallowing "obvious" ideas to be patented. But then there is the problem of defining what is "obvious". There must be some pretty boring/bored patent lawyers out there.

If I could change what's "typical" about typical laptops ...

TuckerBag One that I can do serious work on (591 comments)

I want a laptop with a 24" screen with resolution of 1920 x 1200 (NOT 1920 x 1080) The 24" screen is going to make it a very large laptop. So be it. Also, I want the keyboard to be as close to the user as possible. And no built in mouse pad. I will always use a wireless mouse. Why is what I want never available? I must be a freak?

BSA Claims Half of PC Users Are Pirates

TuckerBag Who is the winner, really? (585 comments)

I guess this is something that has probably been said a thousand times before, but, If pirating stopped overnight, then surely open source would become the standard within months? There's no way that pirates would suddenly start paying for software. And I mean NO WAY! In a way, pirating is doing corporations a massive favour by indirectly stifling open source, yes? Anyway, I love reading threads about this kind of topic, so I thought I should start to contribute :-)
