HTC Sues Apple Using Google Patents

dloose Re:Proxy wars (342 comments)

Nobody comes out of this looking like the "good guys".

Your opinion, not mine.

...

The net result of this fiasco will probably be a cross-licensing agreement and a bunch of rich lawyers. (I don't begrudge the lawyers anything, btw... everyone's gotta make a buck)

Very true, even the mercenaries and crack dealers. Oh wait, there are moral and ethical limits.

alright then. Good talk

HP Drops Price Again For Its WebOS-Based iPad Challenger

dloose Re:Finally, a cluestick (296 comments)

Hey. FYI, my name isn't facepalm. Not sure why you thought it was. That'd be a pretty weird name, don't you think? Maybe that's what you kids are naming your, uh, kids while you juggle 200 gigs worth of ROMs, HD videos, and porn on yourmother fucking vacation. Seriously, dude, you're doing it wrong.Go out and get some sun. Soak up the local culture. Eat. Have fun.

So, anyway, just wanted to say hi. Have fun hiding your massive porn collection. Remember to label the card something boring and innocuous like, "My Favorite Martian SD ripzzz" (you know, 'cause you don't want to confuse it with the card that has your HD MFM eps).

HP Drops Price Again For Its WebOS-Based iPad Challenger

dloose Re:Finally, a cluestick (296 comments)

Expandable storage is a workaround for a product flaw. It's not a desirable feature. "Sorry, we couldn't make an affordable product with a reasonable amount of on-board storage. Why don't you fiddle around with these tiny little pieces of plastic instead."

Can you at least spell "boy" with a y? Fanboi looks like the title of a Avril Lavigne song. Nobody deserves that. I get that you don't like fanboys, but they're human beings.

I think a lot of people care about thickness, but more probably care about weight. Of course, the two are pretty closely related.

dloose Re:I think you don't understand technology (566 comments)

the point of a smartphone is that you can theoretically have every damn feature.

Nope. That's something you just made up.

dloose Re:I think you don't understand technology (566 comments)

If the iPhone had a file manager, you would find another arbitrary (there's that word again) feature it lacks and say that it's the reason the iPhone is dumb. "why else would they buy a phone that doesn't even have a fucking Fortran compiler?"

Is Final Cut Pro X Apple's Biggest Mistake In Years?

dloose Re:I thought that was the iPhone (443 comments)

I used Apple computers alongside others (three button SGIs and two button beige boxes), and the one button mouse was a terrible abortion that required two hands (open-apple-click) to use to marginal effectiveness.

So terrible an abortion that it made you use both of your hands? At the same time. Well, I hadn't thought of that. Sounds awful. Tell me, what do you do with your off-hand when you're using a multi-button mouse? Wait, wait, wait... on second thought, please don't.

Is Final Cut Pro X Apple's Biggest Mistake In Years?

dloose Re:I thought that was the iPhone (443 comments)

Hi PopeRatzo. I had to look it up anophthalmia. It's is the congenital absence of 1 or both eyes, right? I see your point (no pun intended). You could have omitted the superfluous anti-Christian stupidity, but given your name, I guess it's not too surprising. Anyway, I could just as easily say that polydactly or hermaphroditism is a "mistake", right? Sometimes it's just as bad to be born with too many of something.

The point is, Apple didn't make mice with places for 2 buttons. Apple didn't make mice with 2 buttons, but only 1 of them worked. Apple designed and manufactured a mouse with 1 button. Because Apple thought it made the device easier to use. And, having taught 3 of my grandparents to use the 2-button variety, I'd say that Apple had a point.

dloose Re:I thought that was the iPhone (443 comments)

It's forcing us to redo all of our work.

no, it's not. It's forcing you to continue using a familiar product instead of buying a newer, cheaper product with a similar name that doesn't have the same capabilities. FCP7 still works. Nobody is being forced to "upgrade". Especially not you, because you don't use Apple products.
