Remastered Star Trek: the Next Generation Blu-ray a Huge Leap Forward

arazor Re:FUCK YES (470 comments)

With a lower bit rate it is possible to encode 720p and 1080p on DVD media. 25gb BD-R are about the same price as DVD+R DL so they aren't that expensive.

If you still want to use DVD media lookup AVCHD & BD-9.

DC Comics Announces "Before Watchmen"

arazor They should publish these under the Vertigo label (130 comments)

Vertigo is full of "R" rated material. That is the only way they can do the prequel Watchmen stories in a proper way.

They do have some fantastic writers such as J. Michael Straczynski but I fear they will limit the comic to "PG" level stories. I suspect it won't be totally awful but the readers will feel it could of been so much better.

USPS Ending Overnight First-Class Letter Service

arazor Re:Netflix (713 comments)

They won't use UPS if they ever want to see their discs again.

That is absolute bullshit. Mods please mark that post as troll and this one as well if need be. In my adult life (25 to 30 years) I have only had a couple problems with UPS which were always resolved by the shipping party.

I have never experienced a serious USPS problems either for that matter. The current USPS financial problem is a purely political problem that could be resolved with a bill that would change USPS money management back policy to roughly their 1990s rules and regulations.

CyanogenMod 9 Working On the Nexus S

arazor Re:Ubuntu (218 comments)

Not sure if it's "real" enough for you, but Ubuntu is coming to tablets.

Whether that means you'll be able to run any Linux application you like remains to be seen, but I imagine if it's Debian-based it should be quite hackable.

Ubuntu is already running on the ASUS TF101 and an idiot proof install is in early stages of development.

RMS: 'Is Android Really Free Software?'

arazor Re:Eating it's young. (433 comments)

Some in the FOSS community seem to have taken a page from the Tea Party handbook.

Like or hate the tea party their strategy seems to be working. They are effectively in control of the united states government. By your standards the FOSS community should be ruling the software world instead of largely being unknown.

Bing More Effective Than Google?

arazor Bing is not for sophisticated users. (385 comments)

In fact if you use a hosts file and adblock+ doesn't even load properly. If you use the bing search bar in FF or Chrome it works but formatting is all screwed up.

And all you have to do is surrender all your data and privacy to the Chinese government, who will in no way use it to spy on you and make dissident "disappear". You can trust Uncle Hu.

Angry Birds Exec Says Console Games Are Dying

arazor Re:Innovation? (350 comments)

I guess the innovation is that by using cute birds instead of nerd type objects like catapults Angry Birds has incredible main stream appeal. Where the previous similiar games were made for nerds only.

Feds Help You Find Your Fastest Internet Service

arazor Re:Not accurate results (163 comments)

The National Broadband Map gives erroneous results. For example, it states that Verizon has broadband service for my address, but it doesn't.

Same for me as well. It listed at least 6 providers for my area but in fact there are zero providers of broadband in my area.

Human Rights Groups Join Criticism of WikiLeaks

arazor Re:The sad part? (578 comments)

These people already put themselves on "death lists" by associating with various foreign military organizations. If a few more deaths put a real end to the iraq and afghanistan wars it would be worth it.
