Film Studios May Block DVD Rentals For One Month

iamangry Re:hey, it beats (545 comments)

More importantly, when it costs some 30 dollars to own a blu ray, but the same as a dvd from netflix, how can they expect people to be more willing to buy their product? Maybe if bluray was 15 or so...

A Tale of Two Windows 7s

iamangry Re:Vodka (770 comments)

Seriously, I haven't had a single problem with it thus far, aside from the minor gripe of it not liking Mathematica too much just yet. But I would submit that that's a Wolfram problem and not a Microsoft problem.

No, what do technology could we possibly steal from them? Tech espionage is an asymmetric battlefield.

Some Users Say Win7 Wants To Remove iTunes, Google Toolbar

iamangry Re:Windows Upgrades (570 comments)

Fresh install ultimate x64. 20 minutes, no reformat required. I know some people will have gripes about this and that, but this OS is a HUGE upgrade from xp64. So much more compatibility of devices than xp64, and a considerable improvement in user interface design/appeal. Snow Leopard can suck it, Win7's a friggin' polar bear.

Some Users Say Win7 Wants To Remove iTunes, Google Toolbar

iamangry Re:Windows Upgrades (570 comments)

Yep, so that way Apple can perpetrate the fallacy that "Windows isn't user friendly, look, it hates iTunes and iPods". Few will consider that it's instead Apple that hates Windows.

AT&T Suggests To 300K Employees To Lobby the FCC

iamangry Re:Please People, You're Spreading Misinformation (239 comments)

Yeah but those were all done like 100 years ago. Since then they've just been exploiting their power to pull more and more insane benefits out of companies until they can no longer compete. i.e. Government Motors.

Ultracapacitor Bus Recharges At Each Stop

iamangry Re:Until... (419 comments)

Sounds like a successful business to me. Understand that while all you environmentalists gripe about "green energy this" and "conspiracy theory that", ExxonMobil continues to do what a good American company should do: make money and pay taxes to the US Government. They paid roughly a sixth of the US defense budget in 2008 (something like 116 bn in taxes.. that's right, the US government made twice the money off of "exploiting the people" that ExxonMobil stock holders did). They're a business, they exist to make profit. Shame on you for expecting them to blindly cooperate with your vision of the future just because you and people like you will it. Especially when they have been researching new energy sources for automobiles and collaborating with Toyota on new engine technologies.

You live in America. Profit is a good thing, not obscene.

Secret ACTA Treaty May Sport "Internet Enforcement" Procedures After All

iamangry Re:Senate likely to pass treaty (239 comments)

Yeah it'll be up there on Thomas. For the last five minutes before the vote because no one wants anyone to know what it says until it's too late. People always get after our Congress for moving so slow. In situations like this, I think they move too fast. It is becoming increasingly clear that the checks and balances of our government are buckling and eroding as a result of two parties that have become experts at gaming the system. The ability of the people to control their government is but a shadow of what the framers designed, for the government has learned how to effectively control the people.

Secret ACTA Treaty May Sport "Internet Enforcement" Procedures After All

iamangry Re:Single point of failure (239 comments)

I wouldnt say it was a rip off, as much as I'd say it was a different take on that sort of situation. It seems to me like the DS9 episode "Distant Voices" was a more of a rip off from "Remember Me"

Why Charles Stross Hates Star Trek

iamangry Re:Scalzi on Stross on ST (809 comments)

May have been? No, it absolutely was. The story of how Romulus got destroyed, and everything surrounding it, was EPIC laziness on the part of JJ Abrams and his backwards retarded science advisor. Black hole juice has got to top the list of bullshit technologies I've seen in ALL of star trek, including Endgame. Not to mention a whole host of rife inaccuracies with the rest of the universe which should have remained the same, reboot or not. Abrams made a great movie (seriously!). But it wasn't Star Trek.

Why Charles Stross Hates Star Trek

iamangry Re:Scalzi on Stross on ST (809 comments)

Actually, I believe they were referring to Jupiter's internal temperature because they were hidden inside the planet. And that can be much hotter and much more pressurized than 400 degrees C.

Why Charles Stross Hates Star Trek

iamangry Re:Scalzi on Stross on ST (809 comments)

Actually, as a HUGE star trek fan, I tend to agree with him. Although I'd take it further and say that Star Trek, Star Wars, BSG, Babylon 5, and more recently Stargate have all done this. Writers insert crazy technology into a current writing without any thought as to the implications to the universe theyre creating or to the universe they already have. For instance, how about that "Wormhole Drive" McKay pulled out of his ass in the series finale of Atlantis?

Penny-Sized Nuclear Batteries Developed

iamangry Re:Cars??? (444 comments)

Only if while we do that we rebrand coal to "Ancient Corpse Turbofurnaces" and solar to "Death Ray Harvesters" and wind mills to "Breeze Annihlators". Then people will BEG for "Atomic Energy"

NASA Downgrades Asteroid-Earth Collision Risk

iamangry Re:Four in a million, huh? (244 comments)

Well, given its an American agency, I would submit that the logical answer is that they're referring to NFL football fields. This is also how you can tell its coming from NASA, as they used an area from a popular sport to describe something instead of coming up with a way to explain the volume. Typical...

Apple Takes Action Over Australian Logos

iamangry Re:Wow, that's hypocracy (425 comments)

You know... apples... are a symbol of nutritious food products. Woolworths... sells food (presumably nutritious). Maybe "Apple" has no right to trademark a symbol in the public domain in the first place. Anyone consider that?

Apple Takes Action Over Australian Logos

iamangry Re:Apple is ass (425 comments)

Seriously, I cannot agree with you more. Apple, in its tradition of being a full 10-15 years behind MS, is what MS was 10-15 years ago. A monopolistic, money hungry, competition destroying block of crap. The thing is, Apple does it while appearing "hip and cool" to the retarded masses (that's you, jack ass fan-tards!). Somebody in the PC market should have litigated against them when they switched to intel back in 2005 because they were "damaging the PC architecture brand". Cause that's what a Mac is. A PC with a stupid case and a bad OS that costs way more than the alternatives.

Now. Watch THIS get modded as troll or flamebait, despite it being true.
