Facebook Is Down

lokiomega Re:Grow up. (448 comments)

What is up with all the Facebook hate? It's a tool people use to communicate passively. Not everybody wants to call everyone they know with their every thought. If somebody wants to know, they read their wall.

A Printer That Uses No Consumables

lokiomega Good idea (240 comments)

Honestly I love this idea. I could print up a whole PDF at a time, and read it like a book or manual when I need it; all the things that are too straining to read on a monitor for any lengthy period.

Honda Makes Nanotube Breakthrough

lokiomega Re:win-win (88 comments)

Given a choice between making some profit by selling an unpatented product, and no profit by not selling an unpatented product, the choice is fairly clear.

Or more likely, losing money from R&D funds not being recouped from insufficient sales. Patents are a good idea by creating an incentive to innovate. It's the abuse of the patent system that's stalling creativity, not the system itself.

Want to Eat Chocolate Every Day For a Year?

lokiomega Re:What will the control group be? (158 comments)

Sucrose is half fructose, and most sweeteners of any type are now high-fructose corn syrup... so I don't believe that sucrose vs. fructose thing for a second.

Fujitsu To Show Off "Zero-Watt" PC At CeBIT

lokiomega Re:Let's get real (222 comments)

You're missing the point. Granted, the signal energy may indeed be too low, but all you would need to do is switch on power.

Fujitsu To Show Off "Zero-Watt" PC At CeBIT

lokiomega Re:Let's get real (222 comments)

It can be. The "wake-up" signal that the net, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth gives it could give it enough power to switch it back on.
