dragonjujotu Honeycomb is not a full version (257 comments)

I wish people would stop counting Honeycomb, it's a tablet-focused fork of android that isn't supposed to be on phones anyways.

dragonjujotu Re:Mountain bike in the city, for my safety's sake (356 comments)

Nah, that's not a capitalist society; that's people who decide there's only one way to build roads. Sounds like y'all would be better served just laying gravel roads everywhere.

Senator Wants 'Terrorist' Label On Blogs

dragonjujotu Re:Hey, guess what! (370 comments)

Agreed, when any of these events is left to its own merits, it can easily be labeled as a terrorist act. However in context, they were coordinated (to some degree) to enable the Continental Army to succeed in overthrowing British rule in the colonies. Our own military used a coordinated barrage against Baghdad widely televised as "Shock and Awe". Counted on its own merits, it was large scale terrorism.

$529M DOE Loan Spawns $97K Made-in-Finland Cars

dragonjujotu Re:Second of many government backed failures (372 comments)

Agreed. I also agree with Ron Paul's proposal to cut the departments of the government whose sole purpose seems to be giving out said loans.

A $25 PC On a USB Stick

dragonjujotu Re:Media Center (352 comments)

Ya know, I always wondered how my computer output sound to my TV even though they're only connected by an HDMI cable, then I remembered, you can send audio signals across that same cable. Albeit, ups the price of the monitor.

Cable Channels Panic Over iPad Streaming App

dragonjujotu Already Possible? (346 comments)

Couldn't I technically do this anyway by properly setting up my computer with my cable box?

Let's see:
TV Tuner card
Cable Box
Wireless Router
Ability to remote into computer hosting the TV Tuner

Yep, looks feasible to me. Sure there might be some limitation with QAM/ClearQAM, but it certainly looks possible.

Truly, I was just aiming for the negative mod.

I read 4 of the 5? Hitchhiker books and I just didn't feel that it was especially noteworthy. Too much rambling, I guess?

Uhmm... no anecdotal references here, but wouldn't most any black market be more free market than any capitalist nation, simply from the fact that they're unregulated?

Hot Or Not — 3D TV

dragonjujotu Re:Auto Stereoscopy... (419 comments)

Hardware feature creep, not software.

But even then he's still mostly wrong. Apple is one of the first to drop legacy technologies; the obvious one coming to mind is the 3.5" floppy drives. However, it is rather difficult to customize what you do/don't want in an Apple computer. You either get the whole shebang or a couple less features i.e. MacBook Pro vs. non-Pro (IANAMU, I'm not an Mac user).

Yeah, you can tell that to my ASUS nVidia motherboard that I bought last year. I couldn't get the NIC to work on Vista or Win7 beta out of the box. However, I didn't have to bother with the driver on an XP install. It's one of the mainstream quality boards too, nothing exotic about it.

Scientists Crack 'Entire Genetic Code' of Cancer

dragonjujotu Re:The extrapolation for lung cancer is badly flaw (235 comments)

Well the summary actually says it's 30,000 mutations for skin cancer and 23,000 for lung cancer, but at least you got it right in your math.

The Perfect Way To Slice a Pizza

dragonjujotu Re:Unsure. (282 comments)

Congratulations, you didn't do any better...

50 * 50 = 2500

So it's 2500/pi cm^2. And if each person gets 1/10, that's 250/pi cm^2, or about 79.6 cm^2.

Music While Programming?

dragonjujotu Re:Other reason (1019 comments)

The place where one of my friends work has this policy in place because the factory workers cannot wear headphones, so the office workers can't wear them either. So the office workers brought in stereos. Granted, the majority of the workers listen to country music, but it can be very irritating to someone like my friend, who finds that to be all the more reason to want to strangle fellow co-workers.

In 100 Years, Health Care Won't Be An Issue Because ...

dragonjujotu Re:Mission Option: It already isn't.... (804 comments)

From the last I heard or read, US healthcare is something in the order of 16% GDP, Canada is about 10.7% and everyone else is less (well as far as the EU goes). Yet we have something like 56+ million uninsured, mostly young.

On the young part, one of my friends went to the hospital (emergency room) for kidney stones and came away with a $3600 bill, $2000 of it for useless MRI's... WTF!
