Many Mac OS Users Not Getting Security Updates

kommakazi Re:Exactly why I stopped buying Apple (380 comments)

Hardware becomes obsolete, or at least too old to run current software. That's a fact of life, always has been. You logic is fatally flawed. Once your android phone is not able to be updated (hell it already may be) are you going to switch to something else? Once you Lenovo laptop is too old to run Windows are you going to switch to some other OS? Do you expect to pull an old 386 out of the basement and install Windows 8 on it? You're fucking stupid.

Better log off the internet, by using it you are engaging with all kinds of non-open source software.

What Would It Cost To Build a Windows Version of the Pricey New Mac Pro?

kommakazi Re:WRONG QUESTION !! (804 comments)

You're missing the point - If Apple is building what you want, why pay more to build it yourself?

What Would It Cost To Build a Windows Version of the Pricey New Mac Pro?

kommakazi Re:Nuff said (804 comments)

Yes because a business is going to purchase a Mac Pro tailored for say video editing, then 1 year later switch to high end scientific data processing? not likely.

Only visible to the user account it's created in. If you're letting other people use your user account, you are the problem, not the browser.

kommakazi Re:Local file (135 comments)

Well it's your own fault for not setting up a guest account and associating with sketchy people who you would let use your computer yet fear may steal your sensitive data. The problem is not the computer, it's you.

Panasonic Announces an End To Plasma TVs In March

kommakazi Re:Cost and market (202 comments)

I'm not denying LED TV's have lower power consumption, however the picture on my plasma is so much better than anything a LED TV can currently put out it's worth it to me to pay higher energy costs until the point at which LED / OLED / whatever power power efficient technology catches up in terms of picture quality. The power strip suggestion is just a good way to minimize the additional cost of keeping a plasma around until that point is reached that I can replace the plasma with a more power efficient AND equal or better picture quality TV.

Attach plasma to power strip. Turn power strip off when not watching. Standby power consumption = 0 watts. Better image quality while in use = worth slightly higher energy costs.

Are Bitcoins Becoming Europe's New Safe Haven Currency?

kommakazi kommakazi writes  |  more than 2 years ago

kommakazi (610098) writes "It's not so surprising that a growing number of Europeans whose countries are in dire fiscal straits are moving their money from banks to Bitcoins. The eurozone is in end-of-times pandemonium over its debt crises; Greece is starring in its own economic tragicomedy; and Spain is scrambling for a major bailout. And just last week, the euro overtook the British pound as the second-most common currency that bitcoins are traded against (after the U.S. dollar, which has 72% of the market thanks to its large community of early adopters)."

While I find it hard to believe Bitcoin would become a truly widespread safe haven throughout Europe, it remains interesting people are considering Bitcoin as opposed to more traditional havens such as gold or silver."
