iOS 8 Review

fxsoap Corrupts Video files (216 comments)

Beware Ipod Touch/Phone 5th Gen users if you add your own .mp4 files (movies/videos/pron/whatever) and don't purchase shows to watch on your devices. The IOS 8 update has corrupted the video files for myself and 3 other friends of mine. No music affect at the moment. Also video files are now limited in their description to 18 characters when viewing them in their list form that shows up when you go to videos. So now for me, videos show up for example as : The.Daily.Show.201... and can not be look at further before opening them.

Amazon's Plan To Storm the Cable Industry's Castle

fxsoap Comcast, Time Warner, Amazon. (85 comments)

At the very least this will bring healthy competition into the cable industry and give people more options, albeit it an ad-happy-filled option, but at least an option to lower prices.

Amazon's Plan To Storm the Cable Industry's Castle

fxsoap Re:Ad blocker blocker (85 comments)

I'm hoping that stupid message Hulu developed gets bypassed by adblock plus. Let the website 'think' it ran the script/video of whatever ad (maybe even in its own minimized, muted, ignored window) and continue with your real content.

Low-Carb Diet Trumps Low-Fat Diet In Major New Study

fxsoap Re:Simply ignore studies ... (588 comments)

Haha "I hope NOW you understand that." Are you out on the internet just to argue?

No diet, regardless of exercise would ever be healthy in any sense of the word if you ate 12k calories of Pizza.

Balanced diets and regular exercise is important and these food types are not normal.

And you are remembering his diet wrong....he never ate anything like that.

He ate a variety of foods and even those aren't healthy.

Also see:
"But these kinds of calculators donâ(TM)t really apply to a someone like Phelps, who exercises way more vigorously than the typical person, says Kathleen Laquale, an athletic trainer and nutritionist who teaches at Bridgewater State College in Massachusetts. Even by athletic standards, Phelps is in his own league."

So he isn't exercising normally/properly. He's way off the chart in the extremes that most people's bodies would need years to condition to without damage.
