Curved TVs Nothing But a Gimmick

Zurd3 3d not a gimmick (261 comments)

"Curved screens are a gimmick, much along the same lines as 3D TVs are," said Paul O'Donovan". 3D are now a standard in movie theater, it's here to stay. I'm very happy with my 3D TV, I'm not going back to flat movies. It's not fake, nor a gimmick, I'm sorry Paul but you either have a monovision or you just don't know what you're talking about!

Zurd3 nothing new (58 comments)

pingback and trackback are features of WordPress, also known as "remote comments", they are quite usefull to boost the popularity of your website if someone post the URL of your WordPress blog. As Matt Mullenweg from the WordPress project said, there's cheaper, easier and more effective ways to DDoS site. I'm going to let that feature enabled in my sites.

Asia's Richest Man Is Betting Big On Silicon Valley's Fake Eggs

Zurd3 Re:misconceptions (269 comments)

Even more rubbish. You clearly did not see Michael's Greger video like I said. He cite all the studies in every video he post. This is mainstream science, however it is too recent to be mainstream (most are 2009 to 2012) so I understand why people are not aware of it yet. The media is slow to pick up these facts. Please, spend a few minutes to do a search for "eggs" on his website trust me you will be amazed to what you find. Don't forget to click the "Sources cited" too! Here's a good one for you to start:

Asia's Richest Man Is Betting Big On Silicon Valley's Fake Eggs

Zurd3 misconceptions (269 comments)

Not all vegans choose thise lifestyle just because they want to save animals. That's just a bonus. The truth is because it's an healthier choice for your body (source: Uprooting the leading cause of death). For everyone who think eggs is good for the body should go watch the video of Michael Greger. Eggs have too much cholesterol and satured fat. Even 3 a week is too much. The US government has agreed to not call them "safe" or even "healthy". This new egg industry is an awesome idea which will clearly be very succesful.

Zurd3 trojan (319 comments)

No way they can trace you back in minutes after changing IP, you might have a trojan and the antivirus software is not picking it up, they are not 100% fullproof. Format and reinstall every computer, put your mobile wifi at off, don't let them connect to your home network and see how it goes

Canadian Hotel Sues Guest For $95K Over Bad Review, Bed Bugs

Zurd3 missing point (432 comments)

Article doesn't talk about the hotel's point of view, what if the customer brings bed bugs and just try to get a rebate. If the hotel had an expert that same day certifying that there's no bed bugs, they could win in court. Also, bed bugs happens in every hotel even 5 stars hey're a nuisance but they won't kill you.

Londoners Tracked By Advertising Firm's Trash Cans

Zurd3 Re: Cell phones (189 comments)

That's a neat solution, I love it ! Only problem is for people having a MAC filter in their router. Looks like you need to root your phone for it though but after you can use Mac Address Ghost, there's even a cool Random MAC button in it.

Breaking Up With MakerBot

Zurd3 time (185 comments)

5 hours is not so bad, it's a fast grow compared to some crops/trees which are 12 hours in farmville 2. Reminds me 10 years ago when you wanted to rip a DVD, would take about 8-12 hours on a Pentium 3, still, everybody was still doing it.

Wordpress Sites Under Wide-Scale Brute Force Attack

Zurd3 missing info (110 comments)

all articles either are not saying what is the purpose or just talking about creating a zombienet for future use, but one wordpress I know of got hacked just 2 weeks ago by brute-forcing his way in, then someone was able to install a plugin call "boss" which was the r57shell and with this script, was able to put new files in the blog which was serving 7727 websites with a virus when someone visited their site and didn't had flash. The virus in question was the trojan Meredrop, so the wordpress got hacked and was already being used for spreading a trojan. It's high time that WordPress install by default Login Lockdown or Limit Login or some plugins like that, can't believe they don't put it by default.

BitTorrent and Khan Academy To Distribute Education

Zurd3 Re:Already made it months ago (139 comments)

I create a new torrent torrent from time to time to include the newest videos and stop seeding the last torrent at the same time, that's why I don't add the torrent anywhere else, you can find the latest torrent in the link in my above comments and talks about it here. If you can't get to it, I'd suggest asking your ISP or your governments why they block it and try to change their decision, or use a proxy to get to it or ask a friend from another country to e-mail you the torrent.
