Indian Man Charged With Blasphemy For Exposing "Miracle"

jeremy85mai Re:Hopefully (796 comments)

Ah, ok. I wouldn't know all that well(Born in the early 90's). It just seems like(or, at least, online) atheism is a lot louder about it's beliefs or with its objections to things. Do you think it's possible that why we see so much moronic stuff is because we're just being louder/more public about it? It seems like that could be a possibility.

Hopefully the world will start to grow more accepting toward skeptical beliefs(such as atheism, Agnosticism, etc). It makes me sad how often these beliefs are persecuted :(

jeremy85mai (2520912) writes ""Yesterday, while a number of banks were closed, bitcoin decided to break another major psychological barrier, and is now trading at above $100 USD per coin. At the moment, Bitcoin is trading at $118 USD/BTC. There is very little resistance to further price increases, so expect the price of bitcoin to rise very rapidly over the next few weeks. These are also record highs for the currency. ""

Worlds first 9.6 imch 4K screen produced

jeremy85mai jeremy85mai writes  |  about a year and a half ago

jeremy85mai (2520912) writes "Ortustech unveiled today that it had build a 9.6 inch display with a resolution of 3840x2160. This gives the display a resolution of 458.94 ppi. This is the smallest any manufacturer has been able to produce any 4K screens. While this is not the highest density display out there(Toshiba has displays that are around 500 PPI), it is still incredibly dense. The main advantage of screens this dense is either for a much smoother visual experience(reducing the need for Anti-Aliasing), as well as making the image displayed much more crisp and sharp."

Boeing prepares an ultra-secure smartphone

jeremy85mai jeremy85mai writes  |  about 2 years ago

jeremy85mai writes "From the article:
"Earlier this week, it was revealed that aerospace firm Boeing was working on a high security mobile device for the various intelligence departments. This device will most likely be released later this year, and at a lower price point than other mobile phones targeted at the same communities. Typically, phones in this range cost about 15,000-20,000 per phone, and use custom hardware and software to get the job done. This phone will most likely use Android as it's main operating system of choice, which lowers the cost per phone, since Boeing's developers don't have to write their own operating system from scratch.""

jeremy85mai writes "From the article: "Today, Facebook announced that they will provide its users with a download of all of the data it collects on them. In this data, it includes: chat logs, photos, friends. friend's emails, wit all posts, IP Addresses you have used, the previous names you have used, friend requests you have made, and more will be added soon. For the friend's emails, they only show users the emails that their friends have shared with them(so, if their email is listed as only viewable to them, or group you're not in, you can't see it). They also stated that this expanded archive will slowly roll out to all of the sites 845 million users.""
