Ask Slashdot: Can Digital Music Replace Most Instrumental Musicians?

hercludes Re:Music and muzack... (328 comments)

To be honest, not everyone wants to listen to the music you listen to, nor the music I listen to. And that's fine. I wouldn't want someone blasting their music through a boom box when I do not care to listen to it.

What Apple Does and Doesn't Know About You

hercludes Re:Apple Says Something Uninteresting (214 comments)

Yeah, of course. It's still fun for me to poke fun at though, mostly because they take like to say, "No, no, we're not like the other guys. We do the same as the other people, but we're not like them." etc etc.

What Apple Does and Doesn't Know About You

hercludes Apple Says Something Uninteresting (214 comments)

Paraphrased from within the link, "We have a lot of privacy information, we just don't connect it together." How flattering Apple, you know, this reminds me of (insert country here) that is collecting a ton of (insert commodity here). They don't plan to use it of course. They just like collecting it, and doing nothing interesting with it. No, nothing special all. Isn't that right, Apple? Or, should I say, Big BrApple?!?! (Terrible joke, I know)

Valve Shows How Steam Controller Works In Real Life

hercludes Re:This actually isn't half bad (139 comments)

Well you'd be right if I was saying PCs were not doing that either. But I didn't say that.

Valve Shows How Steam Controller Works In Real Life

hercludes Re:This actually isn't half bad (139 comments)

Console producers slap a computer together, mass-produce it and sell it under a price tag. With this they can corner a series of games exclusively for that console alone, so if you want to play a certain game, you'll have to buy the console. And if you just happen to own a console/PC where the game was not originally designed to play on, you'll probably end up with a buggy game. But the biggest issue is that most console games treat their player as if they couldn't handle the concept of pushing a button. You think most of these horridly generic games would be intuitive as to how to play. There are many more reasons why consoles ruin videogames, it's just this awful generifying of games that all have the same exact issue that is not necessary yet included in every game. Oh well consoles, if you think I don't understand the concept of moving with an analog stick, then I doubt I could've actually turned the console on myself.

Microsoft Exec Says Xbox One Kinect Is Not Built For Advertising

hercludes Their point? (75 comments)

Consoles and games in general were not made to advertise. The fact that they have to point it out sounds like they're doing something terribly malicious with the console, which is not surprising to say the least.

Taking Back Control of Your Data, With Fine Grained, Explicit Permissions

hercludes I see a problem... (55 comments)

Regardless if this is a good idea with good implementation, people will find a way to get data openPDS is trying to hide. And it sounds like people who use this will only store more 'sensitive' information; digging themselves in a deeper hole.

How Did You Learn How To Program?

hercludes Pen and paper (623 comments)

Back about four years ago or so when I was thirteen, I got a book "C++ all in one desk reference for dummies." I didn't have a compiler or the internet to get one, but that did not deter me from trying to learn how to program.
