The iPad Is 5 Years Old This Week, But You Still Don't Need One

kuzb Overpriced (279 comments)

The ipad is overpriced, which was easy to get away with when there was no competition. Now that there's competition, apple continues to fail in the pricing game. Android will continue to eat Apple's lunch until they wake up and realize that trying to maintain this luxury image will kill them.

Ubisoft Revokes Digital Keys For Games Purchased Via Unauthorised Retailers

kuzb Re:Everyone back up a step... (462 comments)

...and yet that doesn't hurt their sales.

You're placing way to much emphasis on what credibility you think they have, and what your opinion is worth.

Ubisoft Revokes Digital Keys For Games Purchased Via Unauthorised Retailers

kuzb Re:pirate the games and you get no DRM as well (462 comments)

Except then you have to deal with the fact that every other keygen and crack contains malware and keyloggers.

Ubisoft Revokes Digital Keys For Games Purchased Via Unauthorised Retailers

kuzb Re:grandmother reference (462 comments)

Except in this era of increasing server-side reliance, game piracy is becoming less of an issue. It will eventually get to the point where you're not actually buying the game, you're buying an account with which you can then play the game. Since the majority of people don't think twice about needing to be always connected this trend will only continue.

Ask Slashdot: Is Pascal Underrated?

kuzb Re:Modula-3 FTW! (488 comments)

This argument is rendered useless by syntax highlighting and block matching in modern editors.

Disney Turned Down George Lucas's Star Wars Scripts

kuzb Re:Your scripts were terrible (420 comments)

Except he was really an asshole who couldn't appreciate what was done for him. Fuck that guy.

"Reportedly hated working on Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) so much, Guinness claims that Obi-Wan's death was his idea as a means to limit his involvement in the film. Guinness also claims to throw away all Star Wars related fan mail without even opening it."

Researchers Moot "Teleportation" Via Destructive 3D Printing

kuzb No (162 comments)

This is not teleporting, any more than getting a hard copy of your word document out of the laser printer is teleporting. Teleportation of physical objects implies that something is deconstructed on one end, and then reconstructed in the same state as when it left using the same matter.

Microsoft Reveals Windows 10 Will Be a Free Upgrade

kuzb Re:Only for the first year (570 comments)

..or search. I find launching applications via search (which often matches what I'm after in 2 - 3 keystrokes) is far faster than navigating a start menu.

Your Entire PC In a Mouse

kuzb Re:Once upon a time (165 comments)

Yes, I have a razer mamba which I use regularly. I can use it in both a wired and wireless mode and it works great. Orientation is not hard to manage, and it comes with a charge stand which doubles as a receiver or you can plug a USB cable directly in to it.

The pros are obvious. You're not dragging a cable, which means you're not stressing a cable. Which means one less thing it break, and more fluid mouse operation.

Your Entire PC In a Mouse

kuzb Re:Terrible idea (165 comments)

I've been using mice for 20 years, I've broken several through wear and tear. Yes, expensive mice as well as the cheap ones. They all die eventually. Just because it hasn't happened to you does not mean it doesn't happen.

Jim Blasko Explains BitCoin Spinoff 'Unbreakable Coin' (Video 1 of 2)

kuzb Unbreakable? (55 comments)

People who term their items as "unbreakable" are usually the first to get broken because it's like issuing a challenge to people. Nothing is unbreakable.

Your Entire PC In a Mouse

kuzb Terrible idea (165 comments)

Why? Well, a couple of reasons. First, if you're like me, your hand will be on the mouse a lot causing it to be warm. Second, mice get abused and break too easily.

Star Trek Continues Kickstarter 2.0

kuzb Re:Let Star * die. (108 comments)

If you don't like it, don't watch it. It's as simple as that. I don't understand the "I hate it so it must be purged from the Universe" mentality.

Star Trek Continues Kickstarter 2.0

kuzb It's good (108 comments)

Star Trek Continues is surprisingly good, IF and only IF you happen to like the old-school filming and storytelling style employed by the original Star Trek. It's an amazingly faithful recreation which deserves a lot of props for hitting the mark so carefully.

Why Run Linux On Macs?

kuzb a better question (592 comments)

Why run a mac at all if your goal is to use Linux? PCs are a ton cheaper and in most cases just as good.

Parents Investigated For Neglect For Letting Kids Walk Home Alone

kuzb What the actual fuck (784 comments)

This is too far, way too far. Attempting to charge parents for neglect when they absolutely did the right thing! If it were my kids, they'd be walking too. This world is becoming more retarded by the day.

AMD Catalyst Is the Broken Wheel For Linux Gaming

kuzb Why do people still go AMD? (160 comments)

AMD has been the broken wheel in gaming FOR DECADES. Honestly, leaving AMD products behind has vastly improved my overall computing experience.

LAPD Orders Body Cams That Will Start Recording When Police Use Tasers

kuzb Re:They should be on for a full 8 hours every day. (219 comments)

Yeah, you DO need a special camera, because most cheap cameras can't handle low-light conditions very well. It also has to have a resolution high enough that people are easily identified in the footage.

LAPD Orders Body Cams That Will Start Recording When Police Use Tasers

kuzb Stupid (219 comments)

What a stupid idea. Let's have cameras record what happens after, and none of the events leading up to the usage of the weapon. I think the latter is far, far more important.

A cop's entire day should be recorded, not just when he decides to use force.
