Its strange to see people talking about a corporation deserving to be taken to cleaners for being fools, but same company is classified evil for launching a slimy scheme trying to benefit on gullible people. People and their companies are evil, not companies.

Wikipedia is clear about not being a democracy (a statement that many Wikipedians seem to ignore) ... I don't want to be part of a system that pretends to be open but isn't.

Texas Ebola Patient Dies

arvindsg Re:The Conservative Option (487 comments)

Agreed lesser people have died of ebola, but number of gunshot deaths is fairly stable, while ebola related deaths might increase a lot over time. In other words, rate of change is also important not just the current value

arvindsg That's not very smart (213 comments)

We didn't focus on it because we weren't sure if it was a true signal or an instrument error,

That is not very smart, Such a huge discrepancy from expected value no matter what the reason should be the first thing to focus on. What use were your other measurements if you weren't even sure if the 2500km spot was instrument error or real thing.

Early 2011 Macbook Pro's dropping(still) like flies

arvindsg arvindsg writes  |  about 2 months ago

arvindsg (1757328) writes "Back in january multiple news outlets including slashdot reported that that early 2011 macbook pro's were failing with dead GPU's, just as people reached end of 3 year extended warranties on the same. More than half a year later and with about 9000 comments on apple's official forums there has still been no official response from apple. Official response of apple support has been to get the logic boards replaced(with only 90 day warranty on it), but which does not seem to fix the problem. Rather what seems to fix the thing is good old lead based reballing of the gpu or temporarily by cooking your macbook pro"
