Rupert Murdoch Says Google Is Stealing His Content

markringen murdoc plans are failures (504 comments)

Murdoch plans are failures. 1: he doesn't understand how the Internet works. 2: he doesn't even know what a server is. 3: he doesn't even know how to stop a search engine 4: he doesn't know how to make a profit on the internet 5: refer back to 4 and say he's a genius (with a straight face). how can u not make a profit on the Internet as one of the biggest news company's in the world? is he fucking morose or what? i think he's got Alzheimer or something, because i can't wrap my head around his stupidity.

Windows Server Trusts Samba4 Active Directory

markringen everyone will always quistion (182 comments)

everyone will always question Microsoft, but i think they've had enough with software patents. i know some of the board members from Microsoft are against Software patents, which is sorta ironic from one of the largest patent trolls in history.

my nephew spend a grand total of 500euro's in one year, he even snatched his dad's credit card on which he billed 200euro's! i don't pay for down-loadable content and neither should anyone else, there should really be laws against trivial billing.

Bad PC Sales Staff Exposed

markringen sometimes make fun in stores (650 comments)

sometimes i make fun in stores of the sales people by getting other people to buy a better laptop for far less than the salesperson wants them to ship off with. someone actually gave me 100euro's on the 200euro's i saved him :P allot of stores have new laptops priced lower than older ones with better specs, sales people rather sell an overpriced outdated model than a new one with better specifications.

Cooking May Have Made Us Human

markringen Re:Not Quite. (253 comments)

fittest is technically speaking physical fitness. and in evolution survival of the fittest does not apply to intellect, as in other species the most intelligent one usually lose (why there are no talking lions (lol).

Cooking May Have Made Us Human

markringen Re:Not Quite. (253 comments)

in human evolution survival of the fittest hardly applies, as we aren't the fittest animal out there we simply outthink our enemies which defies survival of the fittest... as the stronger lose when in equal numbers, against a intellectual superior.

Firefox To Replace Menus With Office Ribbon

markringen every platform (1124 comments)

every platform should have their own native user interface, windows is no exception to linux/osx and possible others. why people get their panties in a knot about something as insignificant as this, is beyond me.

Cursive Writing Is a Fading Skill — Does It Matter?

markringen penmenship doesn't matter (857 comments)

penmenship doesn't matter here is 1 reason why: it's worse on your hands than a mouse or keyboard. why keyboards won't fade even with touch is simply because writing by hand, is bad for your hands and bad for your eyes as it requires far more strain on your eyes (looking at back-lit devices puts extra strain on your eyes) math should be done in writing, only because it's faster but text is wholly unimportant and the movements for it are completely unnatural (unlike educated use of a keyboard. which due to the use of board games over several centuries have caused us to be far more naturally adept towards than writing by hand.) and to nostalgia freaks: writing with a pen is about as new as modern as the computer (only the elite of europe used to write in the 17th trough the 18th century). writing text is too inefficient to proceed doing it by hand, eventually keyboards will faid and our minds will be the input device until then keyboards are here to stay (especially on touchpad devices)
