Apple Posts $18B Quarterly Profit, the Highest By Any Company, Ever

dimko Re: to apple fan boys (521 comments)

niche. Smallest unit of a habitat that is occupied by an organism. A habitat niche is the physical space occupied by the organism; an ecological niche is the role the organism plays in the community of organisms found in the habitat. Nothing to do with word smart whatsoever. Used was used metaphorically. I agreed I said something wrong, but I apparently I didn't. You don't know what you were talking about. Over and out. Don't bother answering, as you are attacking my words and not my idea, where idea is clearly given.

Apple Posts $18B Quarterly Profit, the Highest By Any Company, Ever

dimko Re: to apple fan boys (521 comments)

I wont come on offensive here. I have already explained how over half of population of US vote twice for Bush. Absence of intelligence to make proper comparison of products obviously is not helping. Geeks created Apple empire, and they will kill it. No one believed me that windows will go into decline. It does now. Mark my words, fanboys will wake up. Most fanboys are not necessary stupid people. Just stubborn ones.

dimko Re: to apple fan boys (521 comments)

I am no native English speaker, but you got the point. Something so successful in business can't be optimal for consumer. It means basically one thing, that if there is analogue for this product, and there is, they are overcharging.

Not true. You can both overcharge AND sell. You just need enough dumb asses to buy. Niche market if you like.

Guess, how they are most profitable? Obviously nothing to do with overcharging you, NOHOHO, NOT AT ALL.

Ask Slashdot: GPU of Choice For OpenCL On Linux?

dimko Well... (109 comments)

Don't know about pure OpenCL. But... Intel, has over all well support and not too bad compared to windows counterpart drivers. It lacks OpenGL 4 features. It only uses OpenGL3. AMD has open source drivers, which mostly suck. Performance in games is rather bad. Same as synthetic tests. Many people report about rather good bitcoin performance. Proprietary drivers are a bit better on performance but worse on stability. Nvidia, has 2 types of drivers. Reverse engineered ones, which suck and blow when it comes to performance and binary ones. Nvidia with binary drivers has highest performance + stability in games. It's on pair with AMD on bitcoin stuff. In reality no one can say what is good for OpenCL in Linux, because there are no OpenCL apps in Linux. I am no Nvidia fanboy, but i am Nvidia user for a while. They are safest bet on quality/performance, but AMD may as well worth your while, especially if you are dev and don't mind reporting issue to kernel devs, etc.

Ask Slashdot: Where Can You Get a Good 3-Button Mouse Today?

dimko Linux Roccat mice (429 comments)

If your beef with mice is phisical discomfort clicking mice - get a roccat mouse. It has utility to rebind buttons. Use side buttons, rebind them as middle button, and your physical discomfort is gone.

Could Tizen Be the Next Android?

dimko Fat Cat (241 comments)

Needs fat trimming. If Samsung could pull off Tizen as Android alternative, I'd clap my hands. Competition on dominated market is always good. Even if market consists of open source projects. God damn! This sounds so cool! Open Source project competition! :)

The Missing Piece of the Smart Home Revolution: The Operating System

dimko Well, no.... (252 comments)

Modularity, stability, documentation(when all fails, source code is documentation on it's own), ease of configuration. All of those one way or another lead to OSS OS. So *n*x. And, it's probably going to be Linux at the end of the day, could also be Android, as a flavour.

Study: HIV Becoming Less Deadly, Less Infectious

dimko Re:Then again, maybe it _is_ good news. (172 comments)

If you believe in god and that he created aids to punish gay people - it's God's word in actions, that he much less hates gay people. And when AIDS is curable - it will mean, that gay people are OK. Same as sexually active ones. ESPECIALLY cheating husbands and wifes.

Video Narrator in Linux?

dimko dimko writes  |  more than 2 years ago

dimko (1166489) writes "Another plea for advice from collective mind of Slashdot. Fellow nerdy geeky boys and girls, I need to find some software that will help me pretty much translate different videos. I am talking about video narration here, not subtitles. There are a few video editors in Linux, but they edit project and videos. I am not professional translator. I can't do sync translation. So I may need to come back often to certain points of translated material and redo things. I am talking about videos sized between 20 minutes and 2 hours. It's no easy task as you can imagine. What can you suggest that works naively on Linux? I don't see Wine software as solution."

Tinkerable Linux Phone

dimko dimko writes  |  more than 2 years ago

dimko (1166489) writes "Hello my dear nerds and geeks. I am looking for Linux(BSD will do too) based phone. I want something tinkerable, unlike Android is. I had OpenMoko before, but it was not usable at the moment of purchase. I am looking ideally at some phone with more desktop like functionality.(Debian/Ubuntu OS deriviate perhaps?)
I am Gentoo user, so complexity doesn't scare me, but I am NOT a developer. Price range: 150$ — 300$(but will look at higher price if it really is worth it). I am not looking for 3G/4G, not that interested in WIFI, but those would be nice bonuses. GPS is more desirable. It will be mostly phone/alarm clock/MP3 player. I don't care much for baterry, as long as it holds 2-3 days on stand by. No Nokias please, no Windows phones, as it goes against my religious believes. Thanks!"

sick of SOPA? Why not go on offence?

dimko dimko writes  |  about 3 years ago

dimko (1166489) writes "Every day same story all over again. I am sick and tired of all those MAFIAS trying to tell us what to do. Why geeks do not get together and strike back? There was already demonstration of strength, when people started storm in the glass against SOPA and won, why not go on offence and fight copyrights all together?"
