Forbes Names Microsoft's Steve Ballmer Worst CEO

mgblst Re:Microsoft haters (444 comments)

So we would be happier if he was competent, and was not going to be replaced? Not sure what you are saying, but this is a good situation for us haters. (Not that I agree he has been the worst CEO).

Australian Govt Censors Notes From Secret Anti-Piracy Talks

mgblst Re:Sickening, (177 comments)

As an Aussie, I wish what you said is true, but it is not. You are ignoring the recent small elections, where there was a huge shift to the Libs. You are kidding if you think Labor will stay in, despite Abbott being a complete loser and religious zealot.

There are plenty of people who want an election called, the opposition, and the opposition supporters. The opposition and their supporters ALWAYS want an election called, since they can only lose again, and might win. It is very ignorant to ever pretend otherwise.

I am guessing you do not seem to hang around conservatives at all. I wish it was wrong, but Labor are going to lose, and you are lying or deluded.

iOS Vs. Android: Which Has the Crashiest Apps?

mgblst Re:Bad apps crash. News at 11. (358 comments)

Fuck off, this is not your website. Go somewhere else.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to use a plain phone, but bragging about not wanting to get the most out of a device is completely not-slashdot.

DHS Sends Tourists Home Over Twitter Jokes

mgblst Re:Joking about this is the height of stupidity. (709 comments)

You are right, the next time a terrorist jokes about blowing up a plane, is ignored, and does actually blow up a plane, the press will have a lot of fun in the field.

And you should never, ever, joke around. You are just going to make the DHS people feel like morons when you jokes are anything more intelligent than appears on Big Bang Theory.

Non-Copied Photo Is Ruled Copyright Infringement

mgblst Re:Misleading to call it "non-copied" (657 comments)

This case is ridiculous, this is a stupid ruling, there is no way about it.

No, it will not kill them, but it may mean it takes an unacceptable amount of time to do, and cost way to much.

Hahahah. Android is a great OS, there are great phones out there, but one thing that Android is not, is smoother than OS. What a load of bullshit.

Eric Schmidt Doesn't Think Android Is Fragmented

mgblst Re:Eric Schmidt, master of non-answers (431 comments)

"Get Android, it's da bomb!"

That is a pretty stupid thing to say there are at least over 800 android phones out there. I hope you mention a particular model.

Eric Schmidt Doesn't Think Android Is Fragmented

mgblst Re:Eric Schmidt, master of non-answers (431 comments)

Do you happen to know why?

I am an android and iphone developer, so I have to have an android device. I have been stuck using a nexus one for the last 2 months, I can not wait to get a iphone again. It is a lot better than having no phone, or a non-smartphone, but a lot of stuff does suck. The maps is supposed to be better, since it doesn't use tiles, and allows caching, but I have had loads of problems with it. It often won't display the pre-cached data, the GPS is awful, slow, but generally correct when it does work. It forgets maps that I looks at 30 seconds ago. Have to zoom in and out to get it to redraw.

World's Largest Passenger Plane May Be Unsafe, Some Say

mgblst Re:It's like Therac-25 (394 comments)

This is a stupid comparison. If this is a serious problem,what do you think will happen to the airlines and airbus when planes start crashing? There is nothing to gain from them lying.

Are Brain Teasers Good Hiring Criteria?

mgblst Re:Well, they're a good indicator of intelligence (672 comments)

The problem is, everybody can hate on a type of question, but will never mention what questions they would like.

It is always easier to criticize, than to come up with a useful alternative. That is why things will never change. I guess you got some karma though, so yay for you!

Why Do All Movie Tickets Cost the Same?

mgblst Re:Prices ARE different (464 comments)

Did you not see the dark knight or inception, both really good stories, and good visuals on the big screen.

I don't understand people who say stuff like you have, you can avoid the crap quite easily.

Why We Agonize Over Buying $1 Apps

mgblst Re:SHOULD "Apps" Cost Something? (523 comments)

I can imagine the question you asked on the forum "Anyone know any apps for finding coffee shops?", rather than, "can anyone recommend a good app for finding coffee shops?"

Why We Agonize Over Buying $1 Apps

mgblst Re:SHOULD "Apps" Cost Something? (523 comments)

Right, so the fact that you have a description which is vetted by Apple, so must be partially accurate, and images, you still have trouble figuring out what an App is supposed to do. I have people like you email me all the time?

      Why does Coffee shops USA does not work in England? - because its USA.
      How do I add a location? click the + button.
      Why doesn't it do x? Because it didn't say it did x in the description, so I have not fucking idea why you would expect it do that.

Why don't you pick out some examples of shitty apps you have bought? Then we can tell whether it is you or the app. Overwise, you are just coming across as another joker.
