irc still exists, and at least the money has paid for billion dollar fibre cables all over the oceans.

Sony Reportedly Is Using Cyber-Attacks To Keep Leaked Files From Spreading

cheekyboy Re:Is SONY breaking the law with this "defense"? (190 comments)

No
Sony execs have been sacking lots of writers/artists/3d anims just to save another $100m, and yet they are still making $600m per $1000m spent on movies. They dont need to make MORE profits.

The execs of sony are greedy scum that want nothing but 100000000% profits, based on zero expenses for zero effort on their behalf.

You're Doing It All Wrong: Solar Panels Should Face West, Not South

cheekyboy Re:obviously they should track the sun (327 comments)

Just use the new method of bouncing 80% of light in between the windows layers, and have the photocell detectors at the edge of the windows.

1. reduced heat inside home, built in tinting.
2. transparent windows that create power.

Works no matter what angle.

New Book Argues Automation Is Making Software Developers Less Capable

cheekyboy dev world vs medical world (212 comments)

In the dev world, we are required to do all things from R&D , BA, coding, testing, tech writing.

In the medical world, the ops table has 12 people each with minor specialization.

Imagine if there was one doctor doing the prep, drugs, cleaning, cutting, sewing up, the works.

What People Want From Smart Homes

cheekyboy smarttv will be the control hub (209 comments)

As smart tvs get better and more capable, built in wifi/bt android OS etc...

They will be the control hubs of the home, they will IP chat to your consoles, or PCs, or wifi lights, anything. Even running the apps when tv is off (no power even, with 2 AA batteries to keep running during outages/storms)

Of course the korean companies will all talk to each other. Sony will make something totally custom and 3x the cost.
China will make it on every tv, but with poor security.

cheekyboy Re:BT (89 comments)

First class is first to crush when the plane crashes.

The middle or back is most likely to survive better, there have been stats made on this, and the first class and business class is the crumple zone that absorbes most of the energy, SQUISH!

Pirate Bay Founder Gottfrid Warg Faces Danish Jail Time

cheekyboy Re:BT (89 comments)

Enjoy your high altitude flights were cosmic rays are greater and you might get cancer faster.

But tech IP is different to movie IP. You cannot claim tax losses on lost potential sales, otherwise I could claim that you didnt hire me, so in effect, Ive lost income of $5m, so the govt should refund me all tax ive paid in history.

I hope you pay your pilot well, not a cheapass wage.

But its a free market, if you charged 1 billion for your IP then you would get zero sales, so your price was fair to a company, and then evenly spread across 100000s of sales.

Oh and why would you risk everything, any real gambler always hides enough capital to restart or live well. You dont spend every cent you have left, or did you hide millions in assets in your parents name first to avoid paying your over worked unpaid workers.
