Ask Slashdot: Best Drone For $100-$150?

chaosdivine69 Re:Better Question (116 comments)

Ya, and risk getting sued up the ass for an errant shot that blinds someone. Trust me, the perp won't be expecting your drone to suddenly fly out from the second story window and fly kamikaze suicide style into his ultra expensive voyeuristic play toy. Besides it will be extremely satisfying to beat someone at their own game since you'll be a drone douchebag too after all.

Ask Slashdot: Best Drone For $100-$150?

chaosdivine69 At that price point, not much... (116 comments)

You'll be getting crap for $100-150. Sorry, but you will. Now that being said, I have found a Syma x5C from Banggood for $63.51 CAD and has a 2MB camera. http://www.banggood.com/Syma-X... and it's not bad for a beginner but it's going to get broken and then you'll be pissed off.

But you should really save your pennies and buy a Cheerson CX20 but it's $368.40 CAD. http://www.banggood.com/Cheers... Here's an entire thread on it from people who know their stuff on RCGroups: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums...

Do your research on this on YouTube and the Internet in general. Read the reviews. This is a pretty serious drone for little cost. You can get gimbals and use GoPro cameras (or SJ4000 type cameras too). Anyhow, good drones aren't to be found for under $300. Save your money...you'll thank me later.

Belkin Router Owners Suffering Massive Outages

chaosdivine69 I don't Belkin - but can firmware be flashed? (191 comments)

I just went to www.dd-wrt.com and did a quick scan of their firmware and the results are a bit spotty but possible for some types of routers. But if your router is on the list then I'd get the hell out of the Belkin umbrella altogether. Might wish to check out Tomato, OpenWRT or FreeWRT too. If your router isn't upgradeable, smash the fucker in a fit of rage (it'll feel good, I promise) and after you collect enough empty bottles, go buy yourself a new one that isn't made by Belkin and IS on on of these firmware upgrade lists.

Apple Sapphire Glass Supplier GT Advanced Files For Bankruptcy

chaosdivine69 Google buys it. Screws Apple. (171 comments)

Wouldn't it be funny if Google bought the company just to screw Apple? I mean they have a multi-year agreement in place so that would be a few years of thumb in the eye like fun. Oh, I can dream...

Matchstick and Mozilla Take On Google's Chromecast With $25 Firefox OS Dongle

chaosdivine69 Re:Chromecast (106 comments)

I have a Sony TV and their Netflix App is actually pretty good. It even has a dedicated Netflix button on the remote. I don't use any of their Sony Entertainment services or anything else like that since I prefer the connected desktop computer route. Their web browser on the other hand is beyond brutal and it's the main reason I connect it to a desktop.

What isn't good is their Miracast implementation. It only works with Sony phones/tablets...this seriously pissed me off since none of mine are made by them. Instead of disclosing this information, they hid it and then discontinued the model of TV early in the new year because the blow back from unhappy customers over this feature not working with non Sony products was pretty big.

Their matching Blu Ray player has the exact same functionality as the smart TV so things are redundant.

Matchstick and Mozilla Take On Google's Chromecast With $25 Firefox OS Dongle

chaosdivine69 Re:Chromecast (106 comments)

This is true. I have seen all my 3D titles in the theater and it is rather pricey (hence me wanting a copy of 3D Avatar after I saw it so I could repeat the experience on a whim) but I go to the theater to get out of the house and for the "event" nature of it all, granted it's not often I do this. I don't have kids though so I didn't consider that type of expense.

Adobe Photoshop Is Coming To Linux, Through Chromebooks

chaosdivine69 Re:Finally (197 comments)

Just so you know, Corel's doing this sneaky renting bullshit too but they're just doing in peace meal with individual features. Coreldraw X6 was the QR code generator. X7 introduced a Hide Object feature. Both are "greyed out" unless you're a standard or premium member. Standard members don't pay but preemies do - aka, RENT. They'll continue to tie in more features this way also over time. Corel's not getting off easy on this one by any stretch.

Adobe Photoshop Is Coming To Linux, Through Chromebooks

chaosdivine69 Now get Illy and inDesign and I'll convert (197 comments)

I'll hop on board the Linux train if Illustrator and inDesign make the switch too. I mean, Microsoft's doing its best to push me away from Windows so ya, if Adobe is going to put their flagship application on Linux, I'll seriously consider switching out. I'll even wear a Penguin t-shirt to prove my loyalty.

I do wish CorelDRAW would come over too though since I come from a sign design background and much prefer it over Illustrator but I would hunker down and take a few courses to really get good at Illustrator if I had to. It would be really sweet if Sketchup would do the same but there is Blender though so that is pretty freaking awesome.

Maybe this really is the year of Linux on the desktop after all? My curiosity is peeked.

chaosdivine69 Re:Chromecast (106 comments)

I'll see your "smart TV" and raise you a "3D TV".

I have both features in my TV and I use neither of them - well, besides the built in Netflix app. Anyhow, I admit I fell for the hype, call me gullible. I have watched a grand total of 0 3D Blu Rays even though I own a 3D Blu Ray player and an unopened copy of Avatar 3D. The player is still in the box after a whole year. I hope it works because I think the warranty is about to expire in December. I don't buy Blu Rays since they're way more expensive than DVD and since Netflix came along, I don't really need to go on a wild goose chase to find a still operational rental store either. Too bad Netflix doesn't offer 3D capabilities on some of its titles. I might actually use the 4 pairs of stupid looking glasses that came with it.

For a real smart TV experience I connect my desktop computer to the big screen via HDMI cable and sit back with a wireless keyboard with built in touchpad. Now THAT'S a smart TV experience considering I can do everything and anything I desire with that kind of setup.

Moral of my story: If you can save a few bucks on a dumb TV then I'd seriously suggest you consider it. Connect your laptop or desktop to it via HDMI and go nuts if you really want a satisfactory experience.

Supposed Battery Breakthrough. 70% charge in 2mins, 20yr life.

chaosdivine69 chaosdivine69 writes  |  about 2 months ago

chaosdivine69 (1456649) writes "According to Scientists at Nanyang Technology University (NTU), they have developed ultra-fast charging batteries that can be recharged up to 70 per cent in only two minutes and have a 20 yr lifespan (10,000 charges). The impact of this is potentially a game changer for a lot of industries reliant on lithium ion batteries.

In the car industry for example, consumers will save huge on costs for battery replacement and manufacturers will save on material construction since they're using a nanotube structure of Titanium dioxide which is an abundant, cheap and safe material found in soil. Titanium dioxide is commonly used as a food additive or in sunscreen lotions to absorb harmful ultraviolet rays. It is believed that charging an electric car can be achieved in as little as 5 minutes making it comparable to filling up a gasoline based automobile."

Hydorgen fusion possible using lasers

chaosdivine69 chaosdivine69 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

chaosdivine69 (1456649) writes "The BBC reports that a major hurdle to producing fusion energy using lasers has been swept aside, results in a new report show.

The controlled fusion of atoms — creating conditions like those in our Sun — has long been touted as a possible revolutionary energy source.However, there have been doubts about the use of powerful lasers for fusion energy because the "plasma" they create could interrupt the fusion.

An article in Science showed the plasma is far less a problem than expected.
