Former DHS Official Blames Privacy Advocates For TSA's Aggressive Procedures

grenadeh Re:Sounds like evil to me (325 comments)

Why is everyone on this article citing 9/11 as if it's something you know for a fact happened and how it happened? Bunch of delusional sheep, still buying into a 12 year fable that makes less sense than anything on ancient aliens.

Despite Global Release, Breaking Bad Heavily Pirated

grenadeh Re:Here's why I downloaded ("pirated") it (443 comments)

TV and movies and other forms of media you consider to be passive entertainment frequently give life to interesting discussions and debates, so no, that solution is more asinine than a polite suggestion.

Despite Global Release, Breaking Bad Heavily Pirated

grenadeh Re:Here's why I downloaded ("pirated") it (443 comments)

You use the pirate bay? Smh. Maybe I'm elitist among "pirates" but I don't use TPB or any other public tracker unless it's the only choice.

Despite Global Release, Breaking Bad Heavily Pirated

grenadeh meh (443 comments)

I HAVE cable and I DID watch it on cable on Sunday - except I missed half of it because I had no idea it was on. Even so, my living room is uncomfortable and the cable box in my own room is broken. Ergo, I torrent it. I ALWAYS torrent shows, especially after watching them on TV. Let's see - store them for my media server, or pay 60 dollars for the bluray box set in 6 months? I'll buy the bluray when it's not overpriced, thank you.

Despite Global Release, Breaking Bad Heavily Pirated

grenadeh Really? (443 comments)

Are you joking? A) People don't like commercials. B) People don't like it to be dictated to when they can watch what they want to watch. That's kind of why Amazon, Crackle, Netflix, and Hulu, and Apple TV, and the new Amazon system, and Roxio, and DVR, exist. C) People don't want to wait until 2 years from now when Netflix gets the 5th season all the way uploaded

Microsoft Files Dispute Against Current Owner of XboxOne.com

grenadeh Re:how is that possible? (381 comments)

Welcome to 2003 broseph. XBOX is a registered trademark of Microsoft. LONG before he registered that domain. Are you seriously that ignorant? Xbox One or not, XBOX is a trademark and he is using it.

Microsoft Files Dispute Against Current Owner of XboxOne.com

grenadeh Re:WHOIS and Google reveal ... (381 comments)

No offense but there is absolutely no reason for him to have the domain other than leeching. His sole purpose is leeching at this point. The only thing he could possibly stand to gain from being an asshole is money that he does not deserve nor did he earn, in any construed way. If Microsoft loses a case, I would be absolutely amazed.

grenadeh Really? (381 comments)

The difference here with the guy and his McDonalds comment being obviously MS made the Xbox name. This UK fellow has no right to use their companies trademark in his domain name and there shouldn't even be a case. Xbox is a registered trademark of MS, the one doesn't matter.

US Entertainment Industry To Congress: Make It Legal For Us To Deploy Rootkits

grenadeh Re:Legalizing vigilante justice (443 comments)

You shouldn't because CISPA and those other acts are very much alive in Congress and close to passing. These are the same idiot voters who allowed PATRIOT and NDAA to pass, among others.

US Entertainment Industry To Congress: Make It Legal For Us To Deploy Rootkits

grenadeh Oh you government (443 comments)

Rofl ransomware. Yea, completely violating everyones privacy and destroying their personal property and holding it for ransom is justified by someone torrenting a shitty movie to decide if it's shitty.

iTunes: Still Slowing Down Windows PCs After All These Years

grenadeh Re:Temp Files (519 comments)

It also incessantly tries to create it's own cache folder where it stores (and I realize now this is probably what you mean) album art for example. I told you once and I've told you hundreds more times iTunes - that shit is in the folder with the music. Use it. That's not to mention the database file it uses for your library which more often than not becomes unusable if anything goes wrong in the program. And the dupes, oh god the dupes. When other people have to make a script to kill dupes that don't actually exist on your disks....

iTunes: Still Slowing Down Windows PCs After All These Years

grenadeh Re:Migrating the right way... or not because why? (519 comments)

Better question, why would you migrate away from Windows? Linux serves little purpose for actual end-users - many developers don't care for it and developers and other IT workers are the only ones interested in Linux. Don't even start on OSX, there's quite literally no reason to use it for anyone. Productivity software works perfectly fine on Windows with the added advantage of: endless customization, end-user applied hardware and software upgrades, actual connectivity with their businesses, and familiarity. On top of that, games. I literally have not used Linux, voluntarily, since my last Linux admin class in college years ago, nor OSX. No reason to.

iTunes: Still Slowing Down Windows PCs After All These Years

grenadeh Re:Quicktime HD video playback is worse. (519 comments)

Quicktime has always sucked. It's bulky, as far as the gui goes, and slow, and there's absolutely no reason whatsoever that anyone should use .mov while .mkv continues to exist.

iTunes: Still Slowing Down Windows PCs After All These Years

grenadeh Re:Oh this is juicy (519 comments)

Anyone that would willingly stop using Windows while at the same time trying to keep being a computer gamer is more stupid than someone who would refuse to quit Windows because they're a gamer. Game support for Linux is simply infantile and will take a decade - and dev/pub cooperation - before Linux is a feasible alternative. OSX game support is just as bad. Similarly, there's no reason to try using iPhone with something other than its official software, especially if you want the slightest bit of help from Apple Care (not that you'll get any.)

If apple could accomplish the monolithic task of simply storing user credentials on Windows iTunes store without literally having to enter them every. single. time. you open the store, it would be great.
