Actually there is nothing to see here, but thanks anyway for the weak attempt at a Bill Hicks rant.

Austin Airport Tracks Cell Phones To Measure Security Line Wait

amRadioHed Re:Simple solution (168 comments)

Under advanced WiFi settings turn off "Scanning always available". I'm pretty sure this is off by default on Google's Nexus devices.

amRadioHed Re:A bit???? (168 comments)

You *say* you're wrong less often that you'd prefer, but how can you possibly know that if you make no effort to fit your delusions with reality?

Facebook To DEA: Stop Using Phony Profiles To Nab Criminals

amRadioHed Re:Children. (239 comments)

Not really, since it's not a public forum. I can't imagine it's used to meet new people at all the way chat rooms were.

NPR: '80s Ads Are Responsible For the Lack of Women Coders

amRadioHed Re:1..2..3 before SJW (786 comments)

Don't be mean to women and also don't go out of your way to be excessively nice to them. Both of those things can make someone feel uncomfortable, just treat them like everyone else.

amRadioHed Re:Children. (239 comments)

Where are you getting this stuff about chatrooms from? There's no such thing in Facebook.

Facebook To DEA: Stop Using Phony Profiles To Nab Criminals

amRadioHed Re:Government Dictionary (239 comments)

Or maybe the goal is to prevent people from exceeding the posted speed limit all the time, instead of just when a patrol car is visible up ahead.

My toy collection is ...

amRadioHed Re:Gigantic and growing! (209 comments)

Playing with a baseball is not the same as playing baseball. Baseball is a specific game, a baseball is a specific piece of equipment. You can play baseball without a baseball, and you can play with a baseball without playing baseball. So unless legos is a particular activity that you use your legos to play, than saying "play legos" doesn't really make sense.

The Documents From Google's First DMV Test In Nevada

amRadioHed Re:Who would have thought (194 comments)

This test wasn't for a drivers license, it was for a ”self-driving vehicle testing license”. Sounds like a learners permit more than anything else, and as I recall learners permits for people are pretty simple to acquire too. There isn't even a road test.

Google Hangouts Gets Google Voice Integration And Free VoIP Calls

amRadioHed Re:Hangouts text chat - uses boatloads of data (162 comments)

I use Hangouts pretty much every day and in the past month it's used less than 15MB of data total on my phone. This includes some photos I've sent with it. I have no idea what you are doing to get such high data usage, but I don't think it's typical.

California Tells Businesses: Stop Trying To Ban Consumer Reviews

amRadioHed Re:hmmmm (275 comments)

This law applies specifically to consumer goods. How many consumer goods require an NDA to purchase? In pretty sure not even the Apple store has tried that.

Google's Driverless Cars Capable of Exceeding Speed Limit

amRadioHed Re:Safety vs Law (475 comments)

So do trucks blithely crash into your car every time you slow down, or did you slam on the breaks exactly as you were instructed not to do?

Why Are the World's Scientists Continuing To Take Chances With Smallpox?

amRadioHed Re:Better safe than sorry (190 comments)

True, but macroscopic species can survive on their own. Viruses need to infect hosts to spread, and many viruses don't remain viable for long outside of a host. From what I can find, it seems like smallpox is such a virus.

amRadioHed Re:NIH, or once-bitten twice-shy? (129 comments)

Google has killed services before that cost them money to continue operating, that's not the same thing as an open source codec at all.
