Kim Dotcom Says Legal Fight Has Left Him Broke

bloodhawk Re:Justice is served! (111 comments)

The thing is, no matter how much of a douchbag you think he is the fact that he is fighting illegal actions by the US government against a citizen of another country is enough lend your support. Sometimes you have to support scoundrels if you want to support freedom.

NO I really don't. There are so many genuine cases happening all the time where people are being treated like shit by the government that there is no needed to support a scumbag, especially a rich piece of shit scumbag that has no one to blame but himself for his situation.

Kim Dotcom Says Legal Fight Has Left Him Broke

bloodhawk Re:Wife has the money (111 comments)

Most countries have reformed trust laws and such a tactic would not legally hide any of the money, I would be shocked if they haven't also addressed these laws in NZ as this tactic has been addressed in many other countries.

Kim Dotcom Says Legal Fight Has Left Him Broke

bloodhawk Re:Justice is served! (111 comments)

considering the money he spent on extravagance, political campaigning and other crap I would hardly say he was bankrupted by the system. System may not have helped but his own spending is more of an issue here.

Health Advisor: Ebola Still Spreading, Worst Outbreak We've Ever Seen

bloodhawk Re:Burial customs? (236 comments)

What did he say that is even the slightest bit racist? It is actually what the WHO and many other organisations are saying. The burial customs involve in many cases, touching, kissing and washing the body, these are massive problems and have been one of the primary vectors of infection. Their culture is killing them, for the time being they need education that they must restrain from those customs, which if I understand correctly is actually happening.

Ask Slashdot: Best Biometric Authentication System?

bloodhawk why biometric? (126 comments)

Biometric certainly ISN'T a time saver. They tend to be slow to process and take more time than most authentication options. Surely you have proximity cards or smart cards, they are a far easier, faster option if all you are after is a fast easy authentication method.

Firefox Will Soon Offer One-Click Buttons For Your Search Engines

bloodhawk Re:Poor yahoo (100 comments)

I actually wonder if Yahoo were aware of this intended change. If not then I would expect them to back out of the deal or someone at Yahoo needs a major biatch slapping for such an idiotic sponsorship decision.

Samsung Seeking To Block Nvidia Chips From US Market

bloodhawk Re:Lawyers are the only winners (93 comments)

Once one has fired a Salvo the other is really obliged to do the same otherwise everyone else will see them as an easy mark. Blame the twat that decided to fire the first salvo and the idiotic patent laws. Samsung appear to be proceeding down the only avenue that the current ridiculous laws allow.

Customers Creating Fake Amazon Pages To Get Cheap Electronics At Walmart

bloodhawk Re:Genius. (284 comments)

It is complete and utter fraud, no ifs or buts. The intention of the fake listing is purely to defraud Walmart. This is not a shades of grey situation, it is straight out criminal behavior that should see them if caught be prosecuteded

Harvard Students Move Fossil Fuel Stock Fight To Court

bloodhawk Re:Yeah, man (203 comments)

What possible right of due process do they have here? you have a group of students trying to dictate what others can or cannot do with their money. The students have crossed the line and I personally hope they get some heavy damages and costs awarded against them for this.

Ask Slashdot: Is Non-USB Flash Direct From China Safe?

bloodhawk tin foil (178 comments)

considering any you are buying locally will be made in china or korea anyway then if you are scared of those cards you should be scared of just about every piece of electronic kit in the modern world. Your only safe bet is to go live in the woods with an abundant amount of tin foil.

Assassin's Creed: Unity Launch Debacle Pulls Spotlight Onto Game Review Embargos

bloodhawk Re:Don’t really get it (474 comments)

Actually I think you are wrong, it is simply the bad games that get all the attention, most big games both good and bad have review embargoes. The intent is not to block coverage, rather it is to permit more thorough indepth reviews rather than a rushed hack job at the last minute.

Assassin's Creed: Unity Launch Debacle Pulls Spotlight Onto Game Review Embargos

bloodhawk Re:Depends on Embargo Lift (474 comments)

you have time to do a thorough unrushed review with a properly edited write up. Otherwise if they get access the same time as everyone else it becomes a race pump out the fast review to grab the eyes to your site. In theory the embargoes are meant to help everyone, some companies abuse their purpose to prevent negative press before release which is not what they were meant for.

Popular Smartphones Hacked At Mobile Pwn2Own 2014

bloodhawk Re:BlackBerry (52 comments)

sadly I have tried the latest Z30, and no being a smaller security target for people is not worth the pain of being forced to use it. The last few blackberry's combined with the abortion that is the BES made it very easy for where I work to finally pull the plug on blackberry as neither the Users wanted it and the poor bastards having to run BES certainly didn't want it.

Popular Smartphones Hacked At Mobile Pwn2Own 2014

bloodhawk Re:BlackBerry (52 comments)

They didn't hack a nokia 5100 or a Motorola razr either. Probably for the exact same reason, why expend effort to hack something nobody uses anymore.

Intel Claims Chip Suppliers Will Flock To Its Mobile Tech

bloodhawk Re:Multi-core? (91 comments)

The problems you describe have _absolutely_nothing_ to do with the underlying chip instruction set architecture.

Then what is it? Android OS problem?

YES it is an Android problem. barring a manufacturing defect the chip does what it is told, their is nothing you can really do at the hardware level to counteract an OS that gets its knickers in a knot.

Worrying Aspects of Linux Gaming

bloodhawk Re:Game developers are not Linux advocates ... (265 comments)

If I was only speaking for myself then this would not be an issue. the great unwashed masses do not want to be paying constantly for upgrades, nor do they want to wonder if their console is currently powerful enough to run Game X or Y. They want to purchase it and know that everygame release in the next 5 or so years for it will run exactly the same for everyone. Developers also love a single spec to develop for, they know every copy of the game will run at exactly the same resolution and framerate for every person with no hardware variant compatibility or performance issues. This is why consoles exist, otherwise everyone could simply have a PC and I say this as primarily a PC gamer. consoles appear to both developers and consumers because they are a fixed target with known costs.
