amnesia_tc Re:work is for work... (105 comments)

if I was paying my mechanic hourly to work on my cat for 5 hours @70$ an hour

America's Future Is In Software, Not Hardware

amnesia_tc Re:Oh yes, software (630 comments)

My money is on writing software now that creates programs based on interpretive dance in front of a Kinect. Then I'll open up dance studios everywhere and be filthy rich..... I'l go down in history as the founder of the Dance-Based Economy!...... Muhahahahahah......

Damn it! That was my idea!

Google Accused of Interfering With South Korean FTC Investigation

amnesia_tc Re:Really? (186 comments)

Hey, if I'm going to use an awful search engine, I might as well use the awful search engine that doesn't think it knows what I'm searching for better than me. The free Microsoft FunBucks don't hurt either...

Microsoft Scraps 'Where's My Phone Update?' Site

amnesia_tc Re:Open Source vs a Corporate Monopoly (162 comments)

Everyone not doing this cares when they see what can be done on a rooted phone? I've never seen anyone do anything on a rooted phone that was interesting at all. I want my phone to make phone calls and handle other things a phone is supposed to do, I don't want to code in Pyluaby and SSH into remote terminals on my phone.

Windows Phone Homebrew Hits a Snag

amnesia_tc Re:How much does MS pay you? (185 comments)

No, there is a separate, official Facebook app for Windows Phone. And, as far as I can tell, the integration in iOS and Android is not to the same level as Windows Phone does it. I, of course, could be entirely wrong about that. I haven't played with iOS or Android for a whole now.

The geek sees a laser because he can't think of any other form of beamed weapon.

Or because they explicitly called it a laser gun 5 minutes ago.
