TSA Wants You To Keep Your Seat, and Your Hands In Sight

executivechaos Since 2003 (888 comments)

Since 2003 I have not flown into America, I always travel by boat to a shore destination and then take a bus to my final destination.

This is the quintessence of 'over-reaction'. I refuse to be treated like cattle on an airplane simply because the security team on the ground is incompetent

You guys can have fun tolerating this nonsense...the airlines lost my business ages ago.

AbleGamers Reviews Games From a Disability Standpoint

executivechaos This is absolute nonesense (125 comments)

If you're blind...guess what? You're never doing to drive a car. End of story.

If you have no legs or can't walk, you're never going to learn karate and becoming a kickboxing champion. End of story
There are certain things, of course yes we can make more accessible to the disabled, but I'm sorry, gaming is NOT one of them. A recreation that refines split second reflex and hand eye coordination SHOULD NOT BE MUCKED UP so someone with fucking parkinsons can play it 'easier'.
If you have Parkinson? Sorry you simply can play games that require a steady refined hand. END OF STORY.
I know im going to get modded as troll / flamebait but i am SICK TO DEATH of people who are PHYSICALLY LIMITED EXPECTING TO BE ABLE TO DO THINGS AS IF THEY ARE NOT: REALITY CHECK, YOU CAN'T AND YOU NEVER WILL, DEAL WITH IT

Hell, Slashdot is giving me the option of disabling advertising just by clicking a checkbox; I'm not doing it.

AT&T Makes Its Terms of Service Even Worse, To Discourage Lawsuits

executivechaos It is becoming very obvious (412 comments)

More and more as time goes on, that AT&T really doesn't care at all about the average customer, and more so about it's larger corporate clients. I mean, I live in another country, so I'm not directly affected by this kind of stupidity...but at this point, I simply would leave AT&T and go to another carrier. The reason they continue to abuse their customers is because it hasn't proven to cost them any kind of profit loss. Stop spending money with idiot companies America.

Murdoch Says, "We'll Charge For All Our Sites"

executivechaos Re:Bye, bye. (881 comments)

Becoming so intrinsically reliant on media being delivered over incredibly sensitive and vulnerable protocols of transmission (more vulnerable than your paperboy and his delivery route every morning) doesn't make much sense to me.

I know online media is great, dynamic and full of selected content you want to read...but it's delivery relies on almost ten times as many nodes of transmission which is again reliant upon tons of electrical equipment (which don't like electromagnetic interference, bad storms or lightning strikes btw) as the number of nodes of transmission / equipment needed to bring you a physical news paper.

Of course there can be equipment failures at the press house, or the place can burn down or blow up or the paperboy is a crackaddict, but I think we can all agree, that there are many more opportunities for something to go wrong, when it comes to receiving the media online when compared to receiving a physical newspaper.

Also, you can archive physical news papers, clip, frame them...it's all been printed for you, and you've paid for it (well technically, you're paying a small percentage of a cost that has been heavily subsidized by the businesses and organizations who advertise in the paper but the point still stands none-the-less). With online media...it seems like now you're going to have to pay to view, and pay to get a printed copy (use your ink, use your paper, and use your electricity) and the advertisers are still subsidizing the cost of this media getting to you.

Seems like they're just looking for new ways to get you to pay more money for the same old product...same old game.

StarCraft II Delayed Until 2010

executivechaos Re:Not really (453 comments)

Blizzard's ridiculous stripping out of the LAN play feature is partly to ensure no large Starcraft 2 event can happen without Blizzard's active participation and/or approval. Translation: Epic Product Fail. Worst decision that they could have made with regard to this release...ever

AT&T Censors 4chan server

executivechaos And so it begins... (13 comments)

Well, we all knew this kind of garbage was going to start sooner or later right? It is COMPLETELY up to the end consumer to fight this, don't fight it simply because it's /b/ but because of the violation of PRINCIPLE this action on AT&T's action represents. Then again...why am I even remotely surprised at this kind of behavior coming from a company that helped to spy on millions of Americans...illegally. Dear god, America...SEND A MESSAGE. I never thought I would ever say this...but LEAVE AT&T and go to Verizon, if not only to make a point / stand on this issue. The action or non action of their customer base on this will set a precedent.

Family's Christmas Photos Hawk Groceries In Prague

executivechaos Computer Generation (263 comments)

Mario Bertuccio, who owns the Grazie store in Prague, admitted that he had found the photo online but thought it was computer-generated and promised to remove it

I have to admit, that's the most creative pile of bull excrement I've ever laid eyes on.

Scientists Wonder What Fingerprints Are For

executivechaos Re:Primates (347 comments)

Of course they don't ask why people have unique finger prints

The passing over of amniotic fluid inside the womb, over a fetus determines fingerprint array during fetal development.

Each mother will of course...swash amniotic fluid differently over each fetus.

This has been researched and shown.

Swine Flu Vaccine In Production

executivechaos Re:Quite frankly (147 comments)

I really don't understand why your post was modded 'flaimbait'...because the chances of the situation to describe being the case are quite high. It amazes me how much 'faith' people have in these bio-engineering and pharmaceutical companies to act only the in interest of the health of humans everywhere...before profit. For goodness sake...they make money from sickness and disease ...why wouldn't they do something like this?
