Study: Ad-Free Internet Would Cost Everyone $230-a-Year

akume325 Re:Ads not needed (611 comments)

People pay to use the internet but that money doesn't go towards the creation of sites. That money goes straight to the ISP. As much as I hate it, some sites rely on ad-revenue to exist. So that $230 is for those sites to stay alive.

Study: People Are Biased Against Creative Thinking

akume325 no different from evolution (377 comments)

even with ideas there is a survival of the fittest. young ideas aren't going to just be blatantly accepted. they must be challenged and also challenge what has been established. if they are as strong and as brilliant as they seem, they'll come out on top. also just thinking creativity means nothing, you have to execute creatively. sometimes that means playing your boss' ego against them to get the idea made. a person that can do that is seriously creative.

Code For America: 'The Peace Corps For Geeks'

akume325 $35k for 11 months in Silicon Valley? (58 comments)

I fail to understand how anyone could live in downtown san francisco on $35K for 11 months. Additionally are they doing some type of student loan forgiveness for participating in this program? Why would any programmer want to do this?

iPhone 4 Screens Break 82% More Than 3GS

akume325 Re:Taking Apple's side on this one... mostly (348 comments)

I bought my Macbook Pro 3 years ago and it's just as powerful today as it was back then. You get what you pay for. I foresee me using my laptop at least another 2 years before I'll need another one. I'm tired of people complaining about how expensive Apple is. If you can't afford it, then don't buy it, and don't complain about it either, just enjoy what you got. Btw, Apple doesn't make the most expensive laptops. Here's an article posted a while back that did a breakdown of the Mac tax, HP tax, Dell Tax,

iPhone 4 Screens Break 82% More Than 3GS

akume325 Re:Taking Apple's side on this one... mostly (348 comments)

I gotta agree. I owned a 3G. Never put a case on it but I did have a belt holster. Never dropped it, and it remained intact. I now own a Iphone 4 and I expect the same behavior will allow me to have a crack free screen. It as simple as taking care of your stuff. The other day one of my co workers placed a glass of wine next to her new Macbook Pro. Her 2 yr old was pretending to a major league pitcher through a sock right at the glass splashing the entire glass onto the keyboard. Any idiot who leaves a beverage next to a computer deserves whatever disasters that may strike. Similarly, not taking care of your phone deserves the same. Even the toughest phones can break.
