The word you are looking for to refer to Romney and his ilk is "Republicantard".

So what happened?

Steve Jobs is no longer with us.

Nor would he have let the pile of shite that is the new iOS app store app happen.

Facebook Wants You To Snitch On Friends Not Using Their Real Name

jo42 Re:Please help us (304 comments)

Is this your friend's real name?

No. His real name is Mark Douchebag-Berg.

Do you really like this friend?

Only after he bought out my company for $1 billion (give or take a few hundred million).

Has this friend ever sent you any revealing pictures?

Vegas. 'nuff said.

How much do you think this friend spends on entertainment? clothes? shoes? online services?

More than most small countries.

Please estimate the odds that this so-called friend might be a terrorist?

He's a completely different kind of Evil. Greater than any boogeyman (aka 'terrorist') 'threat'.

If you had to describe this friend to Facebook and the DHS, which of the following descriptions would you use: creative? avant-garde? obedient? disruptive?

Money grubbing, privacy invading Semite.

Google Glass: Future of Movies Or Monkey Cam 2.0?

jo42 Re:The future (77 comments)

It's the information right in front of your eyeballs that's the future.

No, the Real Future (c)(tm) is having the hardware jacked right into your brain. No need for dorky eyewear or sticking things in your eyes. The hardware would see what you see by tapping your optic nerve. Your brain would interface directly with the hardware, augmenting your intelligence. That is the future that I want. Not this horse and carriage, post dark ages, middle of the industrial age, steam powered nonsense you call The Googles.

Google Glass: Future of Movies Or Monkey Cam 2.0?

jo42 Re:WSJ: The glasses were ultimately disappointing (77 comments)

'they need the killer app' comment though ... something to make them something that everyone wants.

Duh, Porn. Killer app for VHS. Killer app for The Internet. Killer app for The Googles.

Is that creepy Gnerd at the coffee show browsing the Internet or is he watching a porn star get her bunghole stretched out? Or is a virtual porn app stripping the clothes off of the teenage barista he's staring at?

BTW, I've already patented, copyrighted and trademarked all these ideas and their implementations, so bugger off trying to copy my innovations!

Obama staff needs /.'s help

jo42 jo42 writes  |  about 6 years ago

jo42 (227475) writes "It appears Obama's staff needs the help of some savvy geeks. From the Salon article:

"The tech-savvy Obama campaign seems to have escaped the risk of becoming the Obama White House run by your elderly relatives who can't figure out how to program the VCR, much less this new-fangled "e-mail."

Early reports out of the White House yesterday said staff was still figuring out how to log on to computers, send e-mail, etc. Transition aides had warned reporters on Monday that, come Tuesday, they might not be able to communicate — and they set up special temporary Gmail accounts to reach them. (Though it wasn't even clear that they'd be able to access Gmail from their new computers; Politico reported Monday that instant-messaging, including Google Talk, would not be allowed from the West Wing.)""
