NY Times Confident of 'First Click Free' Paywalls

h7 Re:I dissent (193 comments)

Did you bother reading the other replies or were you busy being pig headed? That article is a rip off and the same stuff can be found elsewhere.

NY Times Confident of 'First Click Free' Paywalls

h7 Re:Why the paywall won't work (193 comments)

I always wondered where your type were hiding. Some people will not consider something good unless they paid big bucks for it. You're one of those idiots.

Google Secretly Tests Autonomous Cars In Traffic

h7 In case of a certain accident (561 comments)

How would the car decide whether to hit a person or a tree in case of a certain imminent accident. If they program it to hit the tree, people can use dummies and cause cars to crash.

Why Are Terrorists Often Engineers?

h7 Re:"engineering" in Asia is a male general degree (769 comments)

A similar misconception arises when with the saying "China [or India] graduates many more engineers than the USA". When you normalize for the fact that engineering Asia covers things not considered engineering in the USA, then the difference is not that great.

Actually, that's not correct, it's the other way around. In US, the university I went to (it's in the top 10) has a degree called MS in Engineering Management (EM). This degree is an absolute joke, it has no technical content- more like a something from the Humanities/ MBA department. But is still classified under "Engineering".

--The Prisoner

h7 Re:Diaries (8 comments)

Couldn't find your torrent using google!?
Anyway not sure what its about but can you send one to server_3249 at hotmail please.

Nice post, I enjoy your writing style. Since you are anyway writing, you should put up one of those blogs. I am sure you'd get lots of visitors and then you could use adsense ads too.

Firefox 4 Will Be One Generation Ahead

h7 Re:...And one generation behind on HTML5 (341 comments)

Speed is not the only factor in choosing a browser. The problem with Chrome is that it's extremely annoying to use in MANY ways, especially for a user who is not in the novice category. The bookmarks, extensions and menus are a disaster of functionality- And they are INTENDED so, because Google wants you to search rather than use client to get the job done.

Blizzard Sues Private Server Company, Awarded $88M

h7 Re:I used to play on that one. (356 comments)

When I recently installed the game on trial to see how things have progressed I found I was not missing anything. The whole sense of community is gone. The cities are freakin deserted and the starter areas are deserted too. The dungeons are just assembled at random and people are teleported in and out of groups. It was a ghastly experience and for the first time I wondered- why should I waste my time on this shit. I now have a few characters including a lev 60 one that died and fell off a cliff into the next zone. I couldn't be bothered to find the spirit, just quit instead.

Apple Outs Anti-Jailbreak Update

h7 Re:Already an issue.. (429 comments)

If you restore the firmware completely through itunes (i.e. click Shift-Restore) and replace the OS, would it be the same thing as what you described as "clean wipe"? Cause I have an ipod touch 2g and after installing ios 4 (unmodified), it became very slow in all interactions, sometimes it takes like double the time it used to take to open screens.

Audi A8 Gets Factory Integrated Mobile Hotspot

h7 Why the heck is this news? (126 comments)

Is a mobile hotspot some great unheard of technology? Even a cheap mobile phone or laptop can set up a hotspot. They just took the hardware and put it in a car instead of somewhere else.

Browser Private Modes Not So Private After All

h7 Re: there are worse things than porn (198 comments)

They wouldn't mind it, especially if there is a separate account or machine for them. If wives want full access to all your stuff, you have other issues.. Just cause you're married doesn't mean you have to give up privacy you're entitled to.

Quake Live Beta Ends, Optional Subscription Plans Added

h7 Re:FRAUD (100 comments)

How would you like all the services you deal with billed annually, but then misrepresented as a monthly cost? It's NOT a monthly cost unless you have the option to pay monthly. The fact that you guys don't understand that this is a marketing gimmick is amazing. Just cause it's in the fine print, doesn't mean it's not a questionable practice. They know that no one will pay $24 for this 10 (?) year old piece of shit, so they advertise a monthly rate but then surprise them with an annual rate. They're sleazeballs

Quake Live Beta Ends, Optional Subscription Plans Added

h7 FRAUD (100 comments)

That would be $24. It costs 1.99 monthly only if you already subscribe, which means you paid $24.
How do these dickheads get away with this " $1.99 per month, billed annually," BS??

Browser Private Modes Not So Private After All

h7 there are worse things than porn (198 comments)

I feel the best option is to lock your account and not give the password out for any reason to anyone including the wife. You could also install multiple browsers and prevent an autocomplete disaster. Why people share user accounts with family is impossible for me to understand. You shouldn't even share the same physical computer with anyone else. Sometimes, there are worse things than porn to discover on someones computer.
