Boxee Box Matures; Another Look At the Platform

arhar Re:As a option......... (56 comments)

I followed this path and found a very significant problem with it. As probably most other geeks out there, I put the computer together and put Linux on it. And then I discovered that Linux doesn't have Netflix and Vudu. And this is not likely to change in near future, due to Microsoft DRM technologies used in those. For a HTPC, it's a very significant downsize. So now I'm faced with a choice of putting Windows on it (ugh), or shelling out for a Mac Mini, which will be twice as expensive at half the firepower. In retrospect, I should've just gotten a Boxee Box with an external hard drive.

Microsoft Says H-1B Workers Among Those Losing Jobs

arhar Re:WHO IS JOHN GALT? (612 comments)

I couldn't agree with you more. Unfortunately, with everything that's been happening in our country lately, it seems like the sane people are in the minority, and the majority, led by "The Messiah" feel like they're entitled to something, for doing nothing.

New York City Street Lights To Go LED

arhar This is ridiculous (303 comments)

This is just great. In NYC right now, they're cutting the city budget, implementing a whole slew of new taxes (taxing Itunes store purchases?), cutting subway service (while hiking the rates)... and what are they spending the money on? That's right, replacing street lights with LED bulbs. Aren't there a little more important things to worry about/spend money on right now?
