Best Buy $39.95 "Optimization" At Best a Waste of Money

desmogod Re:System tuning... (504 comments)

For home users I've been told my little system is as close to a "perfect computer" as they have ever had. Even the older P4 off lease office machines I sell end up with happy smiling customers because of my little trick. We geeks might like tearing into the guts of the OS and tweaking away, but the average Joe don't want to know about anything like that.

Well goddamnit Cletus if your there computer business ain't the best in the whole of the southern states.

desmogod Intelligence? (602 comments)

In what is billed as a world first, a life-size robotic girlfriend complete with artificial intelligence and flesh-like synthetic skin

Can we send it in for a full refund? Or will they issue a patch to correct this flaw?

OnLive One Step Closer

desmogod Re:Windows and Mac only (175 comments)

The fact they are supporting Mac is a huge boon to me. The basic fact is that supporting other OS platforms is going to be a huge PITA for them, OS X and Windows are fairly standardised, trying to offer support for Linux/BSD/Chrome/BeOS or whatever the fuck you run is counterproductive when you consider the percentage that will be using the service over the dramas and added costs it will take to implement.

GSM Decryption Published

desmogod How narrow minded and short sighted. (299 comments)

says Claire Cranton, a GSM spokeswoman,...snip...To do this while supposedly being concerned about privacy is beyond me.'

Wow, how narrow minded and short sighted of you, not all people break, crack and hack stuff for nefarious means, seriously, are you that stupid that the reasoning behind this is "beyond you"? or is it that you think others are beneath you? Some do it because they can, other to see if they can, and some to show narrow minded, short sighted execs what _could_ be done by those with the skills. Wise up, listen and act instead of pointing fingers and jumping up and down.

Consumerist Says AT&T Site Won't Sell iPhone In NYC, Citing Network

desmogod Re:Don't bash AT&T (420 comments)

But when the "respectable business" i.e. a restaurant, treats it's current customers like shit, drops food all over them then laughs, charges exorbitant prices for a greasy burger and fries, and has more than enough money to expand and accommodate new people, are they then really a respectable business?

iPhone 4 Rumors Rumble

desmogod 5 megapixels? (119 comments)

A 5 megapixel CCD is still completely useless unless they fix the abysmal image quality issues. My 3Gs has a 3.2 and should be more than capable of producing a nice photo. It doesn't.

Next-Gen Glitter-Sized Photovoltaic Cells Unveiled

desmogod 100th the size? (155 comments)

,quote.The glitter-sized solar sequins are made from crystalline silicon and use 100 times less material to generate the same amount of electricity as standard solar cells made from 6-inch square solar wafers

Does this mean they are also 100th of the size of a contemporary cell with the same output ratings? If so, that's a very impressive figure and I would be quite excited about this tech.

The solar cells could be incorporated into unusual shapes and materials such as tents, building facades, and clothing, making it possible for people to recharge cell phones and other electronic devices as they walk around or rest.

The last thing I want to worry about whilst camping is even having a cell phone turned on, let alone recharging it.

Making Sense of the Cellphone Landscape

desmogod Awesome.... (185 comments)

I can't wait for someone to deregulate the Australian telco business. I'm with Telstra due to my remote location, and I pay exorbitant prices for voice and data. It's disgusting.
