Google To Drop Support For H.264 In Chrome

f0dder Re:Great! Less choice! (765 comments)

But then they'd be liars since they're still supporting Flash.

They support flash plug-ins that come from Adobe. I don't remember getting an install for h.264

Throwing Out Software That Works

f0dder by xmas there will be around 15 android tablets (622 comments)

just like the Android phones (evo, hero, droid, galaxy, nexus one) there will be a lot of tablets. Competition is a good thing. Apple designed a good implementation of an iPad. Just like they did with the iPod & later the iPhone. Good for them.

Tell that to Sun when they gutted their marketing department. I am sorry even Apple runs adverts 24/7 for their iPhone, iPod, Mac book pro. Every other blog is about Apple apple apple. It's no accident. I am sorry you are very wrong when you say Marketing pays for nothing.

Students Build 2752 MPG Hypermiling Vehicle

f0dder Re:Mass (233 comments)

Extreme rigidity is meaningless if the occupants become scrambled eggs. I am not advocating for SUVs but the physics is what it is. You want crumplezones (ie a hood & trunk), the deformation is energy that is dissipated, less energy being transmitted to the passengers.

RadioShack To Rebrand As "The Shack"?

f0dder Re:Beware of namechanges (629 comments)

Gatorade to G is pretty retarded. Pepsi, Mt Dew, Gatorade they're all part of PepsiCo which I guess has a new CEO. The Pepsi youth commercial where they try to tie all of the accomplishment of the past century to the brand is pretty retarded. It's so bad I am forcing myself to drink Coke.

Linus Calls Microsoft Hatred "a Disease"

f0dder Funny this was submitted by kdawson (634 comments)

Ironic this story is coming from kdawson. He's like the Fox News guy from Slashdot. The story doesn't have to be true if it garners a ton of posts. His stories about MS are often shallow, w/ summary full of some perceived slight often having nothing to do with the story. This often induces a feeding frenzy as MS haters who take the bait goes. My only reason why this continues is that these bring a lot of ad revenue to Slashdot.
