Preferred Type of Game?

grumpyman Re:Board games are forever... (171 comments)

I agree with your assessment though one thing I like about 'computerized' board game is on rule enforcement, especially for less 'serious' gamers that may not fully know the rule book by heart. Yeah that contradicts a bit on #5 but some computerized games allows some rule relaxation.

Android 5.0 Makes SD Cards Great Again

grumpyman Re:At last. (214 comments)

For a long time, I've been hoping for an OS where, by default, the apps cannot access anything outside of their private areas.

I'm not trying to troll but isn't that what iOS does in the first place?

Shooting At Canadian Parliament

grumpyman Re:Parliment Hill != The White House (529 comments)

I'm sure there are some security there but my US friends gotta realize the serg at arms who shoot the gunman is the dude who carries a decorative mace, leading politicians walking into the parliment with a funny hat. No disrespect but all kudos to him for the response but my point is that, this stuff ALMOST NEVER happen here and hence there's little need for people carrying machines guns walking around the parliment ground.

Users Report Warping of Apple's iPhone 6 Plus

grumpyman Re:Not just iPhone (421 comments)

I'd have to think the design of the rounded edge vs iPhone 4/5 squared edge contributes to this weakness as well.

Tech Looks To Obama To Save Them From 'Just Sort of OK' US Workers

grumpyman This is how capitalism is suppose to work. (441 comments)

Would you buy a product in US while you get exactly the same product for half price from China? I am not advocating one way or the other but this is how the system is suppose to operate. Or I go one step further, this is all based on people's fundamental drive for greed (or you call it productivity?) - don't blame the "system".
