Fuck this xenophobic bullshit. Curb H1B abuse, leaving only the genuine cases, and you solve the problem.

Employees Staying Away From Internal Corporate Social Networks

WhoBeDaPlaya Re:Another big problem (131 comments)

An LCD privacy filter works wonders. That and my boss is short and can't really peek at my monitors without a ladder :)

Employees Staying Away From Internal Corporate Social Networks

WhoBeDaPlaya Re:Monitoring (131 comments)

I assume anything at work is recorded/stored and can be retrieved on request. This is problematic if you have asshole coworkers and/or bosses. Better not to leave any trace. Anything I access at work is on a personal laptop tethered to my cell, or failing which, an SSH tunnel back home.

WhoBeDaPlaya Crappy TIM Application for IVB and HW (157 comments)

Thanks Intel for shafting your early adopters and denying that there is a problem with the IHS assembly process for IvyBridge and Haswell. The TIM that they used is actually quite good, it's just the spacing inconsistency between the die and IHS during manufacturing that is the issue.

Apple Reportedly Buying Beats Electronics For $3.2 Billion

WhoBeDaPlaya Overpriced Fluff (198 comments)

I'd rather (and did) spend money on genuinely good stuff like MrSpeakers Mad Dogs and Sennheiser Momentums (over ears). For $50, a timeless favorite is still the Koss KSC-75 and PortaPro.

The Feature Phone Is Dead: Long Live the 'Basic Smartphone'

WhoBeDaPlaya Re:And battery life suffers. (243 comments)

Data doesn't have to be expensive. I bought a retail Galaxy S3 in Asia (so 2GB RAM + quad core, unlike the crappy US version) and am on AT&T's $35 GoPhone plan with 500 minutes, unlimited text and unlimited data.

That's why people look at me like I'm weird for not liking chess / Sudoku / etc. I've spent enough of my day puzzle-solving already (Scala, Perl, Tcl), thanks very much.

Intel Shows 14nm Broadwell Consuming 30% Less Power Than 22nm Haswell

WhoBeDaPlaya Re:Yawn (88 comments)

I believe that it's generally accepted that : Haswell -> 110% IvyBridge -> 113% SandyBridge -> 125% Nehalem not counting special cases such as AVX2. Hence, a 4.4GHz 4770K = 5.5GHz i7 920, or ~137%.
