OnePlus One Revealed: a CyanogenMod Smartphone

etash impressive specs (196 comments)

Does anyone know what's the name of the company or who's behind it ? I have this feeling there must be some giant behind this new face.

Is Crimea In Russia? Internet Companies Have Different Answers

etash Re:Ukraine's borders were changed by use of force (304 comments)

australia, 1901, which incidentally is about 130 years after the US. comparing the britain of 1770 with that of 1900 is comparing apples to oranges. Plus australia is not totally independent, having the queen still as head of state and the british flag as part of its own.

Is Crimea In Russia? Internet Companies Have Different Answers

etash Re:Ukraine's borders were changed by use of force (304 comments)

Is this the first time in your life that you see a not 100% correct by the international standards change of regimes/borders (Kosovo comes to mind)? On the other hand I do like your Kuril argument. Let's extend it a bit more: "Finally, would the British Empire accept a referendum by residents of it's colonies in the new world, for example, on breaking away from motherland and becoming independent?" Those sorts of things are not achieved by throwing roses at your enemies.

Why Are We Made of Matter?

etash the question is not valid because (393 comments)

we don't know we are made of matter. What if what we call matter is in fact anti-matter ? Or to put it differently, if the universe was made of "antimatter" wouldn't we think we were made of matter and the definition of antimatter (positron etc.) would be the opposite of what's now? Isn't it just a matter (no pun intended) of definition ?

Russians Take Ukraine's Last Land Base In Crimea

etash Re:I dont get it (551 comments)

the only one disconnected from the facts is you, as you a) lied about the numbers and 2) never provided any sources for your so called 50%. Until then you're just a shill without citations for his claims.

Russians Take Ukraine's Last Land Base In Crimea

etash Re: I dont get it (551 comments)

are you dumb or pretend to? where was the racism in my post? That piece of land legally belonged to Russia and was inhabited by Russian majority. A referendum took place (the right of self determination - remember that chump?) and they voted for independence.

Russians Take Ukraine's Last Land Base In Crimea

etash Re:I dont get it (551 comments)

I guess you are throwing the right of self determination out of the window dude. What sort of international law are you talking about? It's funny because in Kosovo, there was no referendum at all, it became independent just by bombing. The alaska thing is straw man, it was sold to the US.

Russians Take Ukraine's Last Land Base In Crimea

etash Re:I dont get it (551 comments)

There is no point in fighting for land that doesn't belong to you. Crimea was and is Russian (60% of the population is Russian and most of the rest are russian-friendly), nikita chruschtschow transferred it to ukraine in 1954 in a time that it didn't really matter because it was simply USSR land.

Firefox 28 Arrives With VP9 Video Decoding, HTML5 Volume Controls

etash Re:Browsers are too heavy (142 comments)

We have come full circle. The rationale for 'putting x in the pc' so that i wouldn't need to write code for y platform...just a pc nowadays pcs have so much functionaly built-in they weigh a ton. I don't want all that shit, just show me a 320x240 screen with asci chars. Keep the UI and mice and soundcards and network cards for the simpletons. TLDR; I long for the days when all my computer could do was display characters on a black and white screen. All I ever wanted was to show off my idiocy on slashdot.

Gates Warns of Software Replacing People; Greenspan Says H-1Bs Fix Inequity

etash Re:Living in 1925 kinda sucked (516 comments)

scientifically untrue. if the world economy grows each year by 3% (let's say 3.000.000.000 dollars) we can have people who can get richer each year by let's say 10% where that 10% can be let's say 1.000.000 dollars. We can have 3.000 such people in order to reach to the point where your assumption would have to be true.

Press Used To Print Millions of US Banknotes Seized In Quebec

etash Re:Go after the real thieves lol (398 comments)

are you stupid or a troll? when a gov prints money, the amount of wealth remains the same, but the amount of paper that represents that wealth increases, thus each paper (banknote) is worth less.

Man in Greece sentenced to 10 months in jail due to blasphemy laws

etash etash writes  |  about 7 months ago

etash (1907284) writes "A bit more than a year ago a man was arrested in Greece for satirizing a dead monk, after the far-right party golden dawn, petitioned for his arrest. A couple of days ago he was given a 10 months sentence.

What actually enraged the religious Greek blogosphere was not the satire. He wrote a fictitious story about a miracle done in the past by this specific monk. The story was then sent to one such blog and then in a matter of days it was copy pasted and presented as true by most of the religious and far-right blogs and news sites. The final act of the dramedy took place when he came out and revealed that the story was not real; he intended to show the absurdity and the lack of reliability of these sites."

Greek neo-nazi party "Golden Dawn" leader and top members arrested

etash etash writes  |  about a year ago

etash (1907284) writes "The leader and the top members of the Greek neo-nazi members were arrested today and the party is being accused as a criminal organization. Police members have been involved in paramilitary training of Golden Dawn members. Two senior police officers were arrested as well for five "weird" death cases, including the case of an immigrant who was beaten in a police department after having gone there to declare an attack by "Golden Dawn" members. He died two days later.

The dice for Golden Dawn was cast some days ago, when a Golden Dawn member murdered Pavlos Fyssas a rapper with anti-fascist activity in Greece."

High tech underwear - not only for nerds

etash etash writes  |  about a year ago

etash (1907284) writes "Condom company Durex is experimenting with something which would be tickling your mind and more. A new type of underwear ( panties, bra, slips for men ) have mechanisms to make you warm and fuzzy down there. The high tech underwear can be remotely controlled through a smartphone app and thus provide new possibilities for nerds, lonely boys and girls and long distance relationships. This adds a new meaning to the phrase "There's an app for that"."
