Apple Pay Competitor CurrentC Breached

headhot CurrentC, Now way (265 comments)

CurrentC wants a link right into your checking account. Sounds real safe. What happens when there is an issue? How long does it take to fixed botched transactions? What liability is there? How happy are the banks going to be working with them?

I'll stick to Apple and Google's model.

DHHS Preparing 'Tech Surge' To Fix Remaining Healthcare.gov Issues

headhot Re:Ineptitude? what did you expect? (429 comments)

Nice trolling.
1. The site was put together by Bi-partisan beltway bandits. No cronies needed to be brought in.
2. Healthcare will still be run by private insures, so the hand sitting beureacrats will be those of the private sector, that have been hand sitting for every one else who already has insurance.
3. Your a moron.

headhot Re:Should not be a federal program (429 comments)

Your right, and that was in the Bill. There are states like Kentucky and Washington that have their own sites running. The Feds were only going to run the exchanges for the states that didn't want to do it themselves

Tesla Motors May Be Having an iPhone Moment

headhot Re:I find it hilarious... (452 comments)

Guess your not an engineer. Internal combustion engines are 30% efficient, Large power plant including transmission are are about 80% efficient, so even if the power plant burned gasoline, which they do not, a car running off the grid would be more then 2x as efficient.

Your also assuming that in the US we have not reached peak car. The industry is currently concerned we have. The amount of cars on the road is beginning to plateau.

Steve Ballmer Replaces Don Mattrick As Xbox One Chief

headhot Re:Why hasn't the board fired Ballmer? (343 comments)

Ha, then your not a good investor. If you think Ballmer has screwed up MS, and any one could do a better job, one would expect their stock to rise once he is kicked to the curb, making this the good time to buy the stock low.
