Adam Lanza Destroyed His Computer Before Rampage

endinyal Re:it tells you one thing, at least (1719 comments)

The mother did "nothing"?? What do you expect her to do? The kid is already 20 years old. Up until he went off the deep end by shooting up a school, he never committed a crime. It's obvious he had issues and some possible warning signs in the past, but we can't lock up people for thinking something.

Should we just implement some sort of "Minority Report precog psychics" and lock up people for crimes they have not (yet) committed?

Verizon Worker Arrested For Copying Customer's Nude Pictures

endinyal Re:Stupid is as stupid does... (282 comments)

For many, their cell phone is their only camera. Many don't have the knowledge (or desire) to offload them to a computer and archive it. That alone makes most people not want to do it. With the amount of storage a camera has, the average joe could accumulate a lot of photos without ever having to delete them. Cloud services make the problem even worse (like iCloud) since a photo you take on your camera can be automatically copied to the cloud service, then automatically copied to one's PC resulting in even more ways to steal a pic by stealing a totally different device. It doesn't excuse their responsibility though. If there are photos on one's phone that could be a source of embarrassment, assume that someone could someday get a hold of it.

Steve Jobs' Yacht Revealed

endinyal Grow up (438 comments)

Bunch of childish, infantile remarks from jealous basement dwellers. I'd tell you guys that you should be ashamed of yourselves but that assumes you're worth anything. Assholes.

Why Ultrabooks Are Falling Well Short of Intel's Targets

endinyal Re:The reason is simple. (513 comments)

I must not have gotten that memo. I'm running Linux, Win7, Win8, Win2012 server (for testing) just fine on my iMac using VMware. No problems whatsoever. Have you even tried?

PlaceRaider Builds a Model of Your World With Smartphone Photos

endinyal Re:Pocket (120 comments)

Researcher comes out with yet another bonafide security flaw on Android, and you make it yet another iHater Apple bash. Grow up. This is the problem with Fandroids like you. Who the hell cares that my "free" and "open" OS is wrought with security issues, it's all sticking your head in the sand and sticking it to the "Apple Man". Childish.

Apple Announces iPhone 5

endinyal Sad state of slashdot (1052 comments)

The crybaby, whining comments coming from iHaters and trolls is just shameful. This iPhone will be a huge hit to tens (hundreds) of millions of people. People that will be happy with their purchase, and you guys are holed-up in your parent's basement just criticizing everyone. Shame on you. Grow up.

How Apple's Story Is Like Breaking Bad

endinyal Re:The bullshit is strong with CNN (288 comments)

The one sporting the ego is you. People do need/want someone to look up to. For many, it can be someone as simple as their own mom or dad, maybe a certain school teacher. Armstrong is/was a role model regardless of what pessimists like you think. If one kid that saw Armstrong land on the moon meant he/she went to college, went into science, and contributed to society doesn't prove that theory, what will? Stroke your ego of self-importance elsewhere.

Will Developers Finally Start Coding On the iPad?

endinyal Re:Today. (463 comments)

Interesting that the folks that hate Apple, probably never developed for Apple, seem to know how Apple treats developers. Interesting. Developers are doing just fine so long as they create stuff that people (not egotistical tech-heads like /.) actaully want and use. Don't believe me? Talk to the developers that create iOS software that contribute to the tens of millions of iPads being bought for serious industries like the airlines, government, restaurant, and the entertainment sectors. Then, lets discuss with the Android developers that are helping to sell tens of millions of high-quality Android tablets to those industries too... Oh wait, nevermind. Of course, you'll have your excuses as to why nobody really takes Android tablets seriously in the real world.

Steve Jobs Reincarnated As a Warrior-Philosopher, Thai Group Says

endinyal Grow up kids (223 comments)

The Buddhist claim is silly to say the least. What's really sad is the childish, iHating crybabys that just don't seem to want to stop kicking and screaming. You asshats hated Steve Jobs when he was alive, now it seems you hate him even more now that he's dead. You guys have fucking issues.

Victory For Apple In "Patent Trial of the Century," To the Tune of $1 Billion

endinyal Re:Sweet! (1184 comments)

I totally agree. This trial needed to happen. It sent a message that if you're going to compete, you better do it on your own merit and not copy someone else's hard work and try taking a ride from it. Samsung got what it deserved. If I were Apple, I'd be demanding that $1B+ check right now. Sure, appeal it if you want (I'm sure it will) but that just means extra interest payments on that amount!

Victory For Apple In "Patent Trial of the Century," To the Tune of $1 Billion

endinyal Re:Only 22 hours of deliberations (1184 comments)

unless the jurors found the evidence against Scamscum was so obvious, they didn't need to deliberate any more. Samsung got what it deserved. Seeing the fandroids kicking-and-screaming right now is such a fun thing to witness!!!

How To Line a Thermonuclear Reactor

endinyal Re:Fraudsters (184 comments)

You're absolutely right. We also should never have sent people to the moon. What a waste of money that was. Not like anything ever came out of that right? Computers, satellites, GPS, your cell phone, etc.. Go back into your hole...
