Bill Gates Wants To Reinvent the Toilet

drodal Re:Reason: (338 comments)

It's my understanding that when he "helps" he does it in a very "for profit" way. Like buying expensive medicine for poor people, when they could have been helped in a less profitable way......and more sustainable way.....

So he is still being bill gates........ and not that humanitarian....... (see what happened with OLPC)

Oh, this info i got, i got from the net, at a place called slash dot.

PC Sales Are Flat-Lining

drodal Re:Flat-Line (485 comments)

Sorry but this is silly. Comparing a computer to a fridge just is wrong.

Lets try more obvious examples......

Why isn't a computer more like a table saw..... I turn on a table saw and all my wood gets cut! (fingers too if trying to use a table saw the most "users" use computers).

Why isn't a computer more like an automobile, I don't need to get a license to use it. and cars, well you just turn em on and nobody dies of drunk driving accidents.....

Why isn't a computer more like an Oxy-Acetylene Welding torch...
just turn on the valve and wellll I'm getting dizy and tired......

Why isn't a computer more like skydiving... well

Yes computers can and will a lot more auto configuring..... but lets not forget you don't just plug in 'anything' and it works....

Except a fridge..... I plugin  my fridge and keep my pets in there, they auto configure............

Any thing can be bad when used wrong...

In capitalism it's Man Exploits Man.

In Soviet Russia, it's just the opposite.

In Your Face, Critics! Red Hat Passes $1 Billion In Revenue

drodal Re:And now, for the rest of the story... (227 comments)

more to the point who cares if it replaces the desktop

I never thought it was going to do so, it didn't make sense. I DOES make sense to put it into every things that has a
a cpu and no legacy crap to force it to be something else. But yeah I own apps that go back more than 10 years I still use. And it makes sense
to have a pc or mac for those apps. and to continue to buy those types to continue to use them.

so I think it was naive to think that everyone would have linux on their desktop, no reason to.

But When the next thing takes over (like the ipad+ or something closer to a laptop/desktop/pad thing)

I bet ANYTHING it will run some variant of Linux. (or unix)

And that's how the microsoft monopoly will break up.

Facebook: Legal Action Against Employers Asking For Your Password

drodal Re:i would love to sue my boss for that (504 comments)

Well in all fairness, facebook is the only one here that can stand up and make a difference. It's nearly impossible for each person that's been wronged
to prove their point, but if facebook gets enough complaints they can wave there deep pocketed arms and say, "wanna fight us, cuz we can fight for a loooong time"

So no, they aren't the bastions of privacy, but they are on the right side here. So good for them.
