Did Apple Make a Mistake By Releasing Two New iPhones?

erotic_pie they've always had a "lesser" phone (348 comments)

The 5C is nothing new, Apple has always sold a "lesser/budget" phone with the previous year's model, it's just that this year they tweaked the previous years model with a new ccase.

The 5C is nothing more than a 5 with, what I am assuming, is a cheaper to produce case, leading to higher margins compared to just selling the previous year's model.

California Lawmaker Wants 3-D Printers To Be Regulated

erotic_pie Horrible things? (856 comments)

Wouldn't most "horrible things" that you would do with a gun be illegal? Meaning you wouldn't be able to walk away scott-free.

Unless there is some crazy loophole that says if you kill someone with an unregistered homemade gun it's 100% legal. Which if that's the case I don't think it's the 3D printer that is the problem.

Also, I guess this means it's time to start regulating CNC machines as well.

Apple Now the Top PC Vendor, For Some Values of PC

erotic_pie So tablets at PCs now? (577 comments)

Do tablets really count as a "PC"? If that's the case we might as well start considering smart phones PCs, since a modern tablet is basically just a scaled up smart phone.

Just another case of the internet routing around censorship. Is anyone really truly surprised by this?

Adam Lanza Destroyed His Computer Before Rampage

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

He wasn't the one that purchased the weapons though, he stole them from his mother. All the laws and wait periods in the world wouldn't have stopped him from stealing them from a law abiding citizen.

Ask Slashdot: Who Has the Best 3G Coverage In California and Nevada?

erotic_pie Re:I'll probably be in the minority here... (134 comments)

Good to know.

I guess it really does depend on the area. Here in Colorado, Sprint's coverage has been lightyears beyond what AT&T's coverage was. Even some places up in the mountains I'll still get decent coverage. My 3g data speeds are about half of what I was getting with AT&T (1mbit vs. 2mbit) but I'll take slower in more places than faster in few places any day. I also get 3g in most places that I was just stuck with edge on AT&T.

erotic_pie I'll probably be in the minority here... (134 comments)

I'll probably be in the minority here, but I would say go with Sprint. Sure their data speeds aren't the fastest, but they are a good bit cheaper than Verizon, and their speeds are still plenty useable for web browsing, Pandora, and Netflix. Plus you get the added bonus of free roaming on Verizon's network if you're outside of Sprint's coverage areas. Pretty much anything is better than AT&T.

Single-Ion Clock 100 Times More Accurate Than Atomic Clock

erotic_pie Re:Just scientific experiments? (169 comments)

If I remember correctly, GPS will be difficult to get much more accurate than it is today to the time distortions caused by relativity. Once a clock gets this accurate the relativistic distortion between the sattellite in space and the user on the ground becomes too great. That is of course if they don't find a workaround to the problem.

Ask Slashdot: Best Camera For Getting Into Photography?

erotic_pie Canon P&S (569 comments)

You can never go wrong with a Canon point and shoot. I would look in to an older G series on the used market if you want a bargain. The G9 model and up are absolutely fantastic cameras for the money.
