Colorado Sued By Neighboring States Over Legal Pot

lexman098 Re:Dry Counties? (435 comments)

I would also estimate that probably 70 percent of the folks I know in the area are against legalization.

Then they can pay for the law enforcement required. Can't have your cake and eat it too.

Top Five Theaters Won't Show "The Interview" Sony Cancels Release

Not sure why they truncated my submission

Because questions like that are basically just trolling.

Apple and Samsung Already Working On A9 Processor

lexman098 Re:I think the relevant points got left out... (114 comments)

Nobody was else even /sampling/ 64 bit arm processors. Most did not even have 64 bit on their roadmap save a few server targeted chips.

Very forward looking behavior from apple. You're going to need 64 bit to use more than 2GB of ram without major pain (32 bit addressing is a bitch and workarounds are slow)

Nobody was sampling because 64 bits literally doesn't matter in the mobile space until you start needing more than 4GB of RAM. I'm sure Apple still appreciates all your support though.

Skype Unveils Preview of Live English-To-Spanish Translator

lexman098 Re:With Skype NSA pre-encryption access coded in (99 comments)

That's awful, but ideally if it's unconstitutional then the law has no bearing (not that any of this matters in practicality).

Tesla Wants Texas Auto Sales Regulations Loosened

lexman098 Re:Seems like it, not really. Four gigabit provide (137 comments)

OK, now let's not choose one of the largest cities in the US/Texas. I've been living in various cities in North Carolina for 10 years now and never had anywhere close to 8 choices for broadband. Even in the capital, Raleigh, there was Time Warner Cable, slow DSL, and *maybe* U-Verse (if you were lucky enough to live in the right neighborhood, I wasn't). I have a feeling this is much more representative than Austin TX where Google has set up shop.

Tesla Wants Texas Auto Sales Regulations Loosened

lexman098 Re:Partially. $400 radiator cap. Like Comcast inte (137 comments)

The difference is that there's about 10 major car companies selling in a given city and only one or two (if you're lucky) media content distributors.

New Effort To Grant Legal Rights To Chimpanzees Fails

lexman098 Re:Freedom of assembly (341 comments)

Leadership of companies can still go to prison.

Unless it's massive corruption they generally don't. Normally the company is charged a fine, shareholders lose a tiny bit of value, and life goes on. Meanwhile, peaceful protestors are routinely arrested. I don't think your analogy matches reality.

New Effort To Grant Legal Rights To Chimpanzees Fails

lexman098 Re:Freedom of assembly (341 comments)

They are people, They have the same freedom of assembly as everyone else.

Then let them stand trial on behalf of the corporation and go to jail when unlawful activity has been found.

You don't. You just stop counting at 2 billion and say "over 2 billion". No one cares what the number is after that.

A Rift In OnePlus, Cyanogen Relationship

lexman098 Re: I'm not sure that qualifies as a "rift" (69 comments)

That's understandable, but there's better ways of doing that which avoid vaporware. They could, for example, take orders from anyone at any time (like a sane merchant) and just be honest about the fact that you're ordering a phone before it's even manufactured. People would be willing to wait if the company was honest.

Three-Way Comparison Shows PCs Slaying Consoles In Dragon Age Inquisition

lexman098 Re:Note to HotHardware (227 comments)

why would it make sense for me to spend extra bucks on the PC? Just because some videophile found the console version to be "muddy"?

Higher framerate and/or resolution.

Intel Claims Chip Suppliers Will Flock To Its Mobile Tech

lexman098 Re:Single source issues (91 comments)

I figured someone with an id less than 200k would get the joke, but there's another user on slashdot called jcr who always ends his posts with -jcr (as if the info at the top wasn't enough).

Yes you are. Mods are what made that game, although there were plenty of base servers. Not sure what your trouble was there given the easy server filtering...
