UHD Spec Stomps on Current Blu-ray Spec, But Will Consumers Notice?

msauve Re:The answer is always no (255 comments)

Not only that, but they're lying about the capabilities. It's only 2X the resolution (which is a linear measurement). That gives it 4X the pixels.

msauve Re:its a tough subject (627 comments)

A straw man, but thanks for admitting my point by changing your argument to the amount of risk, not its presence.

Scientists Slow the Speed of Light

msauve Re:Physics 101? (138 comments)

Ummm... This sounds like Reading Comprehension 101... right there in the summary, you don't even have to RTFA:

this is very different to the slowing effect of passing light through a medium such as glass or water, where the light is only slowed during the time it is passing through the material--it returns to the speed of light after it comes out the other side. The effect of passing the light through the mask is to limit the top speed at which the photons can travel.

Should Disney Require Its Employees To Be Vaccinated?

msauve Re:its a tough subject (627 comments)

Name something which doesn't carry a legal risk in the US, where people will sue for anything. Disney's just as likely to get sued by employees who get infectious diseases because they didn't take well know, very safe, measures to help prevent their spread.

Should Disney Require Its Employees To Be Vaccinated?

msauve Re:its a tough subject (627 comments)

Requiring employees who have extensive contact with the public, especially the young and elderly, to have vaccinations for highly infectious diseases is also common sense.

Should Disney Require Its Employees To Be Vaccinated?

msauve Re:its a tough subject (627 comments)

"Employers should not be put in a position where they are giving medical advice or direction. "

So, Disney shouldn't even be quarantining those employees with measles?

"i keep hearing about this social contract, I never seen it, i never signed it. "

So, you've never read Rousseau, and are illiterate with regard to political philosophy.

msauve Re:its a tough subject (627 comments)

No one would be forced to get a vaccination, and everyone has a choice. It would be a condition of employment, anyone would be free to quit if they chose not to get vaccinated.

msauve Re:This will work great.. (320 comments)

Before I deleted my FB account, I don't remember having to agree to a TOS every time I signed on. AIR, it was only the first time. But, maybe I mis-remember.

Insurance Company Dongles Don't Offer Much Assurance Against Hacking

msauve Re:Spoofing! (198 comments)

OBD monitoring may not be require in OZ, but it is federally mandated in the US. It monitors things which would pass a simple tailpipe test. You're obviously unfamiliar with what it does, and unqualified to comment.

LightSquared CEO resigns amid appearance of bribery.

msauve msauve writes  |  more than 2 years ago

msauve (701917) writes "LightSquared, the company who's request to use make use of spectrum in a way likely to interfere with GPS was recently denied, has suffered another setback. CEO Sanjiv Ahuja has now resigned, only a week after a report detailing political contributions and the personal financial interests of Obama and officials in his administration in SkyTerra, the precursor company to LightSquared.

Ahuja's one and only contribution to the Democratic Party occurred on the same day he tried to arrange a meeting with Obama administration officials, apparently as part of LightSquared's desire to fast track FCC approval of a change beneficial to the company."
