Samsung Delays Tizen Phone Launch

kuzb Re:Yes it should ship! (104 comments)

>Apple didn't come from behind in the smartphone market

That's total bullshit. Microsoft was selling smartphones long before Apple ever was. The completely came from behind in the market.

>Apple introduced revolutionary new hardware - capacitive based multitouch technology

No they didn't. That already existed long before Apple came along and used it.

Apple trying to say they invented multitouch is a complete joke, and frankly is insulting to all the other people involved. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M...

Greenpeace: Amazon Fire Burns More Coal and Gas Than It Should

kuzb Also... (287 comments)

...Apple has made a commitment to force you to pay a massive premium for using their products. It's great that they're doing this, but they're forcing the consumer to pay for it, then they turn around and try to act like they're awesome.

Beats (and by extension, apple) is overpriced, overhyped shit. Bose is overpriced, overhyped shit. I sincerely hope they cost each other millions with this.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

kuzb Re:Let me count the ways (962 comments)

"But truth be told, you are probably not really interested in the truth. You would rather keep your blinders on so you don't have to face the fact that this is a serious problem that technical women / geek girls face every day. You might have to change your views and own up to how you are part of the problem."

There's the problem. Blanket statements. There's no actual proof that Man X is part of the problem, but he fucking better well get to apologising.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

kuzb Re:This has nothing to do with sexism (962 comments)

"The real truth is something that most men have trouble understanding: That women, like lawyers, have no problem at all holding two mutually exclusive opinions at the same time. They want to be skinny and make a diet and they want to eat that cake. To many women, there's no conflict in that."

Can you provide something a little more conclusive to substantiate this claim? It seems more made up than anything based in actual fact.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

kuzb ...and the elephant in the room is... (962 comments)

What we're all forgetting here is that we're still moving out of the dark ages of computer use, since the generation that suffered the most for the sake of their ambitions are still alive. The one where being a computer enthusiast meant you were a social pariah and were destined to be abused constantly by everyone, especially all through highschool. Then bam, society takes a hard left and suddenly it's cool to be tech savvy. That doesn't help all the people that got shit on for decades before things turned around.

Now these abused souls are grown up, and in the industry and you wonder why they're assholes? If this were any other situation you'd have governments creating support groups. Instead, everyone is demonizing them for being harsh and defensive. You're not going to see this problem go away for several generations, if it goes away at all and it is a problem that society itself built through its perpetual abuse of other people.

I'd complement them for not knowing perl. There's a reason everyone is moving away from it.

ChickTech Brings Hundreds of Young Women To Open Source

kuzb Re:many girls are brought up to believe that (158 comments)

>There's very few women who play Magic: The Gathering

What a bunch of bullshit. I know at least half a dozen girls in my town alone who regularly play this game. If they exist here, I'm certain they exist all over. Your idea of what young women participate in these days is outdated.

Where exactly is the funding to get free education for my son? Why exactly is it that he has to be disadvantaged for not having a vagina?

UN Report Finds NSA Mass Surveillance Likely Violated Human Rights

kuzb Re:I'm sure (261 comments)

It's not that they're not doing it - it's that they haven't been caught. Or at least, not caught on the same scale.

Coming Soon(ish) From LG: Transparent, Rollup Display

kuzb So sell it already. (64 comments)

It's been "coming soon" for nearly 5 years now. They talk about these sorts of displays every year, offer all kinds of compelling demos and then never do anything with it.

What Happens When Gaming Auteurs Try To Go It Alone?

kuzb Re:Daikatana failed because it was too Japanese. (86 comments)

That's probably because we don't see the aloof emo hero who in between fighting off a plethora of barely legal teen girl love interests, has hour long mid-combat philosophical debates with his enemies as being particularly appealing. Most of us find this just plain stupid.
