Lots Of People Really Want Slideout-Keyboard Phones: Where Are They?

dickplaus Re:Couldn't Agree More (544 comments)

even webOS was significantly underrated. multitasking on my old Pre was wayyy better than on any of the crappy android or windows 8 phones i've had since :(

the card-view or whatever it was called as spot on... the current Android tries a similar approach but still doesn't feel quite the same...

FBI Need Potheads To Fight Cybercrime

dickplaus Re: I call BS (319 comments)

Well like I said before I can drink and handle it just fine but I don't because that's not 'professional'. Hell I'd probably work better with others if I could snag a couple brews around lunch.

dickplaus Drunk (319 comments)

Look I'm all for allowing them to smoke on their own time, but I don't show up to interviews or work buzzing off of a couple bloody marys. Relax the drug screenings yes, but showing up high? That's just immature IMHO.

Valve Announces Steam Controller

dickplaus Re:What wrong with a wireless keyboard and mouse? (317 comments)

Do wireless mice and keyboards have any lag compared to wired? I realize a controller will be wireless but I know in the past that some wireless keyboards had lag issues. Of course, I bought shitty cheap ones.

BMW Debuts First Electric Vehicle Made Primarily of Carbon Fiber

dickplaus Another butt-ugly electric car... yawn (164 comments)

Yet another electric / hybrid car that looks like crap IMHO. Why not make it look more in line with your other models?

One thing I wish Ford or one of the companies that built muscle cars, was take that body style, almost copy it exactly, and convert it into a hybrid or electric vehicle. Obviously, they'd have to change alot of stuff for structural integrity, make it carbon fiber, etc, but keep the body shape and curves.

Imagine a car that looked like a 70's Mach 1 that was hybrid or electric... Of course, then people can't be smug driving these cars. Saying... Thanks!!

Windows 8 Passes Vista, Hits 5.1% Market Share

dickplaus Re: Surpassing Vista (285 comments)

But the Start Screen is so scary... We're on Windows 7 so no point going to 8 obviously, but if I were still on XP I might look at going 8/8.1 vs 7.

I remember Astalavista for security exploits back in the day. Wonder if it's still alive. The name was an obvious pun on AltaVista.

Was That A Tsunami?

dickplaus Re:Obviously due to global warming (79 comments)

Obama? I thought global warming was caused by Al Gore.

Listening to conservatives I have learned that *everything* is Obama's fault.

Luckily, in turn *everything* can then be blamed on Bush then.

Let me explain to you how this works: you see, the corporations finance Team America, and then Team America goes out... and the corporations sit there in their... in their corporation buildings, and... and, and see, they're all corporation-y... and they make money.

WebKit As Broken As Older IE Versions?

dickplaus Re:No really, it's jQuery that's broken (213 comments)

The point of using jQuery and other frameworks is you don't have to re-invent the wheel every damn time you want to do something. Yes, jQuery might be misused in many situations, but in alot of cases, it simplifies the coding so you're not rewriting what is already done.
