Why Microsoft's Surface Pro Could Fail

macdaddy357 Microsoft can't make hardware. (442 comments)

The red ring of death, the Zune, and now the Surface. Microsoft can't make hardware. Considering Windows Vista, Windows 8 and the ribbon in Office, they aren't very good at software either.

ThinkGeek's Best Ever Cease-and-Desist Letter

macdaddy357 Like Domino Sugar vs Domino's Pizza (264 comments)

Domino Sugar sued Domino's Pizza for trademark infringement. For a while, they changed their name to Pizza Dispatch. The courts eventually ruled that the products were so dissimilar that no confusion in the marketplace was likely to occur, therefore no infringement. A vaguely similar phrase describing a fictional product would probably be considered non-infringing as well, but think geek does not have the kind of money to defend itself like Domino's did. It is a shame that frivolous cease and desist letters and lawsuits aren't a criminal offense.

Microsoft Wins Windows XP WGA Lawsuit

macdaddy357 Re:No good (307 comments)

Linux is too complicated for 99.999% of the public. As long installing new software isn't as simple as clicking on an icon, this will always be so. Hate Windows? Get a Mac.

macdaddy357 STI (621 comments)

I propose that SETI be re-purposed into STI, the search for terrestrial intelligence. The only downside is that it probably won't find much either. It sure wouldn't find this guy.
