I find this one the most interesting feature.


-1 offtopic for talking about what Jobs is showing in the unveiling powerpoint presentation? Apple fanboys have raided Slashdot, and they're retarded.

Oh Apple is still different just different as in "we're not going to give you what you want unless its what we want".

Why is this modded troll? I use apple products, and this seems to be right on point.

Giant Plumes of Oil Forming Below the Gulf's Surface

malkir Re:Man! (483 comments)

I find curious how apathetic people are these days.

It's like a toon character:

"Hey! Look! The Earth is being destroyed!" "Yo, man! That sucks!"

Earth may be doomed, but is there hope for us?

As opposed to "OH NO THE WORLD IS ENDING!?!?! Kill your children before they have to suffer the same fate we will!". The whole situation fucked up, nothing you say or do can change that. Welcome to the real world, deal with it and QQ.

One In Eight To Cut Cable and Satellite TV In 2010

malkir Re:Some of us were waaaaay ahead it seems. (502 comments)

Same here. No cable since ~2002. It's progressed to the point where I haven't even bought a TV. My PC is my multimedia device, I don't need ad-infested overpriced media to make me feel 'connected'.

Tower Switch-Off Embarrasses Electrosensitives

malkir Re:"The case will continue...." (292 comments)

When I was a kid, I could hear the capacitors in old CRT's. A room full of monitors would give me a headache. As I got older, my hearing has decreased in the high pitch ranges. That, and monitors have gotten a lot better. :) When someone replaced their old noisy monitor with a newer one, I could tell before I walked into the room. :)

I was able to do that too, I think most children are - it just makes Hearing is much more acute before the bombardment of loud music and the natural decline in the acuteness of ones hearing.

Finding Someone To Manage Selling a Software Company?

malkir Wait a minute (165 comments)

"We have realized that we can make more money by selling the application to a funded company."

That implies that if you sat on it, you wouldn't make money Sounds like fancy words for 'There's no way we can monetize this piece of shit, maybe we can convince some stupid VC company to buy it for more than it's worth.

Ps. Fuck stupid social networking games. What a bunch of data mining, spamming, assholes.
