Facebook To DEA: Stop Using Phony Profiles To Nab Criminals

buckfeta2014 Re:Government Dictionary (220 comments)

Easy to cure, when making new friends just ask: Are you a cop?

The police (or feds) don't have to answer that truthfully.

Netflix Video Speed On FiOS Doubles After Netflix-Verizon Deal

buckfeta2014 No surprise there... (204 comments)

Netflix Video Speed On FiOS Doubles After Netflix-Verizon Deal

We all knew that ISPs were throttling netflix. We called them liars after they repeatedly lied to the FCC. Netflix ponies up some dough and now speeds are roughly what they should have been in the first place. Why should we be surprised now?

ChromeOS Will No Longer Support Ext2/3/4 On External Drives/SD Cards

buckfeta2014 Doesn't bother me. (344 comments)

9 times out of 10, a SD card is used in a phone or camera, or plugged into a Windows PC, all of which assume or expect the card to be formatted with vfat. So what if they don't allow ext on a SD card? Doesn't bother me.

How Spurious Wikipedia Edits Can Attach a Name To a Scandal, 35 Years On

buckfeta2014 Citation needed (165 comments)

This could all have been avoided if the citation whores at wikipedia actually gave a shit about random articles instead of whoring edits (and reverting edits they didn't make) on a small handful of articles.

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? (427 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.

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.
