antibryce what is it? (59 comments)

would it really be that hard for the editors to add a blurb saying what prestashop is to the submission?

Does the GOP Pay Friendly Bloggers?

antibryce from one of the bloggers mentioned (759 comments)

his round-up of replies: http://www.riehlworldview.com/carnivorous_conservative/2010/08/round-up-daily-callers-false-defamatory-story-on-rightside-blogs.html

basically he was asked to write-up a document detailing how the GOP could more effectively communicate with bloggers to get the conservative message out there, and he got paid a couple hundred for it. It's not like they were "buying" him with a couple hundred when he's already a conservative activist (which is why he's blogging in the first place.)

This whole story is just ridiculous. Not one person has said "I got paid to write story X" except an unnamed source who claims it happens all the time.

The Coming Onslaught of iPad Competitors

antibryce Re:History repeats (497 comments)

they have everyone calling their line of personal computers "Macs" and every other company's products "PCs," despite the fact that the differences at this point are superficial.

While I don't doubt Apple does little to dissuade people of this, I remember when this started, and it wasn't with Apple. PC users used it derisively to play down Macs in the early/mid 90's.

Apple Outs Anti-Jailbreak Update

antibryce Re:Why does the submitter see this as a bad thing? (429 comments)

it looks like that is a problem with Exchange, and has nothing to do with the iphone (other than the person who actually took screenshots of the Flash SMS uses an iphone, not surprising given most phones have no way to take screenshots :)

Senate Approves the ______Act Of____

antibryce Re:Not a bad idea in general (571 comments)

you jest, but that's essentially what congress has been doing for a long time. The health care bill essentially said "all these things will happen by this date" without detailing how they would happen. All of the details were handed over to HHS to work out on their own. Basically it was so vague (deliberately so) that the real effects won't be known until after HHS finishes figuring out how to implement it.

Tor Developer Detained At US Border, Pressed On Wikileaks

antibryce Re:Well, good (637 comments)

uh, there are names in the wikileaks postings. Several news outlets, including the Washington Post, have searched the released docs and found names that weren't redacted:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/29/AR2010072904900.html

wikileaks didn't scrub the docs thoroughly, even the founder of wikileaks is basically saying "hey, not our problem!" He's not denying it, I find it interesting you are.

Did you actually read them?

The sanitized version in papers had names blacked out, but the actual leaked docs were basically unedited. The Taliban has already announced they're using it to compile a list of people to kill.

An iPhone App Store That Apple Doesn't Control

antibryce Re:HTML5 limits (144 comments)

google ported quake to html5:

http://techcrunch.com/2010/04/01/google-html5-quake/

so to answer your first question: yes.

I'm pretty sure HTML5 can access your camera and mic, although I'm not 100% on that. They can also work when you're offline, using the iPhones built-in caching.

Girl Seeks Help On Facebook During Assault

antibryce Re:Mother... (417 comments)

not really trying to defend the mom, but the guy's criminal record doesn't seem to contain any sexual crimes. just because someone has a DUI doesn't mean they can't be trusted with kids.

For all we know his convictions are from a long time ago and he's been clean since the mom has known him.

Apple To Issue a 'Fix' For iPhone 4 Reception Perception

antibryce Re:Do The Right Thing - A Steve Jobs Joint (534 comments)

the Evo is the first Android phone I seriously considered over the iPhone, due to the fact that it's the first to really minimize the horrible lag in the UI. However the 2 points that made me get the iPhone 4 are

1) Battery life. The Evo has a battery larger than the iPhone, yet battery life is terrible compared to the iPhone.
2) Screen. Yes it's bigger on the Evo, but the color representation isn't as good. I put an Evo and an iPhone side by side and loaded up the same image, the Evo's looked flat and dull, the iPhone had rich colors and just looked flat out better.

I love the customizability of Evo, several coworkers have tricked theirs out and I am truly jealous. But what good is a device I can customize if when I reach for it to actually use it the battery is dead?

I'm glad Android exists, I really am. I just wish you Android fanboys could recognize that some people prefer the iphone for completely logical reasons.

Apple To Issue a 'Fix' For iPhone 4 Reception Perception

antibryce Re:Do The Right Thing - A Steve Jobs Joint (534 comments)

"No, I haven't become what I hate. You don't see me supporting an abusive, shitty company so I can have a trendy, overpriced device."

you don't see how self-righteous that is? you're better because you followed your own reasons for buying the device you did, but you hate those who don't follow your reasons?

the fact that I was modded as a troll while you got +5 just backs up my opinion that Android fanboys are turning viciously rabid.

Apple To Issue a 'Fix' For iPhone 4 Reception Perception

antibryce Re:Do The Right Thing - A Steve Jobs Joint (534 comments)

no, he's totally correct. I've been noticing this over the past year, Android fanboys are far more annoying and "emotionally attached to their overrated device" than any iphone user I've meet. It's only getting worse with the Droid and Evo. My rational reasons for choosing the iphone over the Evo are roundly ignored and I'm labelled a mindless apple fanboy.

I don't slap Google stickers on my car and blindly claim my device is superior to all others.

no, you just publicly proclaim yourself to be better than all others. my iphone isn't superior, it's just a better fit for my uses. if android is a better fit for you that's great.

Make-A-Wish Builds A Millennium Falcon Fort For Boy

antibryce Re:Good to be thinking of feelings, but (94 comments)

even if you pull all the money spent on stuff like this across the entire world it probably amounts to less than 0.01% of all the money spent on researching disease cures. It'd be a drop in the bucket. Or we can spend that drop making a dying kid's wish come true.

what's the point of living a long life if you can't bring happiness to someone else?

Nintendo Announces Raft of New Games, 3DS Details

antibryce Re:But I'm lazy..... (240 comments)

I wish I could mod you up. The feedback on the wii controllers really makes the system useful. I sort of thought it was a gimic but it really does make it feel like you're more in control. natal/kinect just feels like you're flailing about wildly.

I expect Sony's system will outperform Kinect for precisely this reason.

Nintendo Announces Raft of New Games, 3DS Details

antibryce Re:Nintendo Still Rules (240 comments)

I don't think nostalgia has much to do with it as this point. I loved the NES/SNES and still own both, but I look at nintendo's newest stuff I don't see much in common other than it's great for casual game play. There will always be more casual gamers than hardcore gamers, so nintendo will always come out ahead. There's a reason MS and Sony are trying so hard to compete with the Wii, because they have the hardcore gamers and there's no where for them to go now.

the playstation was released in 1994, and I don't see nostalgia helping the PS3 any.
