David Cameron Says Brits Should Be Taught Imperial Measures

legojenn Re:FP? (942 comments)

Seems like you fucking Canadians have the same problem. The speed limit is 65 miles per hour. Not kilometers. Move your fucking minivan over to the slow lane. I'm looking at you, lady with the Quebec plates!

As a slow driving lady with a Quebec licence plate. (Our cars only have a plate on the back), I resent you implying that I have a minivan, you insensitive clod.

Apple Says Many Users 'Bought an Android Phone By Mistake'

legojenn Re:Anecdotal but... (711 comments)

also anecdotal

I had a 3GS that I got used. Last year, Rogers in Quebec had a deal with 5G of data, unlimited texting, unlimited local calling and domestic long distance for $70. I got an iPhone 5 on contract. What the hell? Anyhow, the clerk started pushing me towards Samsungs, but once he found out I already had an iPhone, stopped pushing the Nexus.

He then told me that Rogers pushes the Android phones harder because there is more profit in it for them.

Whether it's true or not, I can't say, but Tim Cook might be right in saying that people bought something that they were manipulated into. However, that's business and I am sure that there are people who are walking around with expensive Apple products that they don't need or planned to by either.

Facebook Debuts New Gender Options, Pronoun Choices

legojenn Re:Why not (462 comments)

Firstly, this is Facebook. It's easier to collect, aggregate and sell data from a select list rather than allow people to enter what they want.

Secondly, this is Facebook, many people who might be in the 50 options of gay and transgender should be wary of trusting a company not to share that information beyond what the user originally sets in their privacy settings.

Finally, many people who might considered to be in the 50 options of gay and transgender and happy with the dichotomy.

Compared to my 1st computer's memory ...

legojenn Re:Missing alternative (587 comments)

My first computer was a VIC-20 as well. Now my laptop has 6Gb. I am guessing that I am in the 100 000 range I learned that I was a lousy coder back then, so I'm a tester now. To many out of memory errors.

Canada Launches ACTA Bill

legojenn Re:Maple Leaf State (91 comments)

....it seems to me that's where this is heading unless the Canadians get some backbone.

It was a mistake taking Maestro Fresh Wes' advice to let our backbone slide in the late 80s. We might have fared better with a fixed backbone.

Prince of Sealand Dies At 91

legojenn Re:Interesting contradiction (218 comments)

I think the reason that retired Canadians who six months minus a day in Florida or Arizona has more to do with US immigration laws as provincial regs on regarding the revocation of health insurance. Canadians can stay in the US for up to six months without a visa. I'm sure other sunnier countries have similar rules regarding non-working foreigners staying for extended periods of time.
