Chevy Volt To Resume Production One Week Early Following Record Sales

jrcamp Re:Volt is a game changer. (443 comments)

I wish Americans would stop using "gas" when they mean gasoline. Over here we have cars running on actual gas, as in, vapor hydrocarbon.

I'm so sorry our language confuses you. Let me see if I can gather everybody up in the country and get them to change a fundamental word in their vocabulary just to make you happy.

Google Releases Stable Version of Chrome 10

jrcamp Re:As long as they stick with that UI (169 comments)

Please explain why tabs on top are "ridiculous".

Also, it appears the only reason you think the Chrome UI is inferior to Firefox's is because you're used to Firefox. And you know what, it's perfectly reasonable to say "I stay with Firefox because I'm used to the UI". But to say you don't use Chrome because it's not Firefox is patently ridiculous.

Last Days For Central IPv4 Address Pool

jrcamp Re:We always knew that ipv6 adoption would be mess (376 comments)

Trillions? I need to see those numbers.

While I agree it's much harder than many people here seem to let on I think you might be too far on the other side.

Not every single device in the world must be switched to IPv6. Only devices that require they be publicly routable might be affected. And even among those. it's not like IPv4 addresses will disappear over night so there's no reason for existing users to necessarily migrate over. This significantly reduces the problem. There's no reason that companies that have vast internal networks on need to switch to IPv6. That would be a giant waste of money for them.

Mozilla's VP of Engineering On H.264

jrcamp Re:Mozilla H.264 Fees = $5,000,000+ per year (675 comments)

By some estimates Firefox has over 270 million users. That is less than 2 cents a user. Can somebody tell me where to send my 2 cents (literally) so I can get on with watching adorable cats struggle to stay awake.

Study Suggests Crabs Can Feel Pain

jrcamp Re:Required reading (628 comments)

I have seen chefs put lobsters in the freezer so they (presumably) go to sleep and die quietly.

Is this more or less humane I wonder.

Well, think about it. Would you rather get stuck in the freezer and die or stuck in a human sized oven and be cooked? The answer seems completely obvious to me. (It's frozen if you were unable to guess.)

That's like saying since drag racing cars are the fastest cars everybody should be driving one.
