Blame America For Everything You Hate About "Internet Culture"

cyber-vandal Caring about news and politics instead of trivial (370 comments)

How incredibly snobby to give a shit about what's going on in the world and how your country's being run rather than hur hur look at da crazy cat. The human race is filed.

How To End Online Harassment

cyber-vandal Re: here we go (834 comments)

After me what? I haven't made a blanket statement like you have. If you can't answer my straightforward question then perhaps you should try thinking for a change.

Space Tourism Isn't Worth Dying For

cyber-vandal Re: Risking your life for a business (594 comments)

You'd prefer working 18 hours a day in all weathers and dying of exhaustion at 43 if you're lucky enough not to die of starvation or disease first. Some people really don't realise how good they've got it.

Law Lets IRS Seize Accounts On Suspicion, No Crime Required

cyber-vandal Re: Oh boy ... (424 comments)

I blame people who say idiotic things like "if you've got nothing to hide you've got nothing to worry about".

Law Lets IRS Seize Accounts On Suspicion, No Crime Required

cyber-vandal Re: Still trust big government? (424 comments)

Depends. If you're happy that nothing bad will ever happen to you then carry on believing in Libertaria. Me I'll rely on the fact that I will get treatment when I'm sick and won't starve if I am no longer able to work through no fault of my own.

You might argue that the private sector can do that but you have to justify yourself to them much more than to a state health care system.

Fight the bad laws and the bad actors for sure but the reason that you and I are amongst the safest humans in history is largely due to a strong government system.

Microsoft Now Makes Money From Surface Line, Q1 Sales Reach Almost $1 Billion

cyber-vandal Re: The corporate sector is where it will sell (117 comments)

There's nothing dumb about giving someone a device that will seamlessly connect to their infrastructure and run their Windows only software. Windows tablets will gradually replace quite a few of the Windows laptops in use now.

Windows is definitely dwindling in the consumer space and I can't see them ever catching Apple and Android tablets in that market but there's a huge largely untapped corporate market that Microsoft has a massive entrenched prescence in already.

Microsoft Now Makes Money From Surface Line, Q1 Sales Reach Almost $1 Billion

cyber-vandal The corporate sector is where it will sell (117 comments)

A tablet running full Windows where you can connect seamlessly to Exchange and AD, run Office and other Windows only apps and their existing .NET devs can easily write apps for them. The org I work for is trialing them now and the initial feedback has been very positive.

I can see the previous company I worked for going for it in a big way too. They have a lot of field staff who have lots of data to capture.

Samsung's Wi-Fi Upgrades Promise Speeds Up to 4.6Gbps

cyber-vandal Re:Never buying Samsung again (92 comments)

All the security fixes and no I don't want to install a custom ROM where half the hardware doesn't work. I did look into that believe me. Stupid fanbois. The state of Android updating is crap and pretending it isn't or telling me to install some random piece of software doesn't absolve the world's largest smartphone manufacturer from its incredibly poor record.

cyber-vandal Never buying Samsung again (92 comments)

How long did it take to get KitKat to the Note 2? An eternity and it's not even the latest version. The last thing I want is that same disinterest in customer service being applied to my network equipment.

US Says It Can Hack Foreign Servers Without Warrants

I wonder if Gary McKinnon can use that defence? After all he hacked into the US DoD looking for evidence of a UFO cover up.

Former Infosys Recruiter Says He Was Told Not To Hire US Workers

cyber-vandal Re: On the recieving end of racism. (293 comments)

Why shouldn't people be entitled to leisure time and disposable income? You make it sound like something terrible instead of the perfectly reasonable expectation of having a life outside work and the ability to enjoy the fruits of their labour. People buy Chinese because either they can't afford more expensive items (and this is a vicious circle as more people see their living standards go down due to outsourcing) or because there's no alternative because most corps have outsourced to make a few people richer without actually reducing prices that much.
