Microsoft's Asimov System To Monitor Users' Machines In Real Time

buckfeta2014 DURRRRRR.... (261 comments)

During Windows 8 testing, Microsoft said that they had data showing Start Menu usage had dropped

Maybe that's because they got rid of it and put that bullshit metro in its place... Of course nobody wants to use it.

Google To Require As Many As 20 of Its Apps Preinstalled On Android Devices

buckfeta2014 Big whoop? (408 comments)

I don't see the big deal here... It's not like apple has a bunch of preinstalled apps on their phone, and winmo (or whatever you want to call their current version) probably has them too...

It's a google phone, of course it's going to have gmail, hangouts, maps, drive, youtube, etc. Just in the same token that apple stuff is going to have their own software (safari, itunes, etc)... I wouldn't doubt that winmo has office preinstalled too.

Big whoop.

New Graphene Research Promises Reliable Chip-Level Production

buckfeta2014 When??? (26 comments)

Every time I hear about graphite, graphene, bucky balls, nanotubes, and all these other carbon buzzwords, they keep saying "soon soon soon"... Well, what I want to know is when this stuff will leave the research labs and be of any practical use to anyone. Either shit or get off the pot already.

Small Restaurant Out-Maneuvers Yelp In Reviews War

buckfeta2014 Dubious reviews ad nauseum (249 comments)

I can understand giving the place one star because that's what they want, but most of the reviews are from people who've never been to the place, or the reviews are all nonsense, like "I went to this Italian restaurant expecting to eat Chinese". I could see Yelp turning around, deleting all the reviews and starting this shitfest all over again.

I have a router, a switch, a wireless access point, a desktop-class server, and two desktops. I highly doubt anyone needs several full racks of enterprise-class servers.

3D-Printed Car Takes Its First Test Drive

buckfeta2014 Tough as steel? (132 comments)

The vehicle which weighed about half of what a typical automobile would weigh, was as strong as steel.

I'm sorry, but I don't believe that. Run it into a transport truck or a dump truck, and guess who will win.

Text While Driving In Long Island and Have Your Phone Disabled

buckfeta2014 Re:The Nanny State Strikes again! (364 comments)

Or Champix/Chantix, the anti-smoking pill that causes its users uncontrollable rage and suicide attempts (some of which were successful). All the FDA cares about is making money off the misery of Americans. On top of that, you have Canada, which feeds off anything America does, so they have Canadian blood on their hands as well.
