Man Booted From Southwest Flight and Threatened With Arrest After Critical Tweet

mordejai Re:Southwest Boarding Policies (873 comments)

And the company is totally within their right to enforce that policy and deny the free "upgrade".

Getting the family off the plane and illegally threatening them, on the other hand...

"Microsoft Killed My Pappy"

mordejai Re:fake premise (742 comments)

My android phone crashes way more often than my Windows VMs (which almost NEVER crash, or reboot without warning, giving credibility to the theories that blame faulty hardware and drivers for Windows problems). This also happens at inconvenient times. Maybe you stopped using Windows 15 years ago (I wouldn't blame you)

How Much Beef Is In Your Burger?

mordejai That's a country with low food standards (709 comments)

But a beefburger rarely contains 100% beef.

Bullshit. Come to Argentina, and even the cheapest* beef burgers are really 100% beef (and lots of industrial junk of course, but no other meats)

*: about GBP 0.50 each

Google kills Wave

mordejai mordejai writes  |  more than 3 years ago

mordejai (702496) writes "Google stated in it's official blog that they will not continue developing wave as a standalone product. It's sad because it had a lot of potential to improve communications, but Google never promoted it well, denying it a chance to replace email and other collaboration tools for many uses."
