Swiss Railway: Apple's Using Its Clock Design Without Permission

mweather Re:so i can't make a clock with no numbers? (274 comments)

If you want to nail apple for something, use one of the rediculous patents that actually held up in court.

Or one of the ones they unsucessfully tried to get upheld.

Windows Phone 8 Officially Unveiled

mweather Re:64 cores (414 comments)

I had a flash application that made my old nokia 5800 phone vibrate in various intervals. And phone was small enough to fit inside a condom with some stretching.

You won't see something like that on your new hip iphone! :D

There's an app for that. Several, actually.

Engineered Stomach Microbe Converts Seaweed Into Ethanol

mweather Re:mixed feelings (226 comments)

Depends on your definition of support. The planet can't suport the 6.8 billion people in existence if the had an American standard of living, but it can support a billion people with an American standard of living, and most of the rest living a sustienance level existence. I'm sure the planet will support 9 billion just fine, in the sense that a rural Chinese farmer is supported just fine.

Engineered Stomach Microbe Converts Seaweed Into Ethanol

mweather Re:i doubt that seaweed (226 comments)

The corn we grow for ethanol isn't the same corn we grow to eayt. The important bit is that it takes up farmland that could otherwise be used to grow edible corn. Even if inedible (it's not, this is edible seaweed), this seaweed takes up space that could be used to grow edible seaweed. Same problerm, different crop.

Hosting Company Appears To Be Violating the GPL [Resolved]

mweather Re:Abandonware? (418 comments)

And what you don't see in shittypedia is what any ass-hat with admin powers, an axe to grind, and no common sense decided to "blacklist" off of the page. Wikipedia is basically worthless.

If they reverted YOUR edits, it can 't be all that bad.

Pot Grower's Privacy Challenged

mweather Re:Let's put it up on Wikileaks (477 comments)

Absolutely. However, don't ask a public or private ER to treat you at their or taxpayer's expense when you snort crystal drain cleaner.

So long as they also refuse to treat the obese, or those engaging in contact sports and other dangerous lifestyle choices.

Crowdfund a Moon Monolith Mission?

mweather Re:Useless Piece of Crap (199 comments)

It's ridiculous to argue that all individual effort not directed to a worthy cause should be confiscated for redirection to a worthy cause.

Agreed. Good thing we're talking about a collective effort.

Intel Insider DRM Risks Monopoly Investigations

mweather Re:Monopoly? Anti-competetive? (217 comments)

Of course. Being the only processors that can stream most online media totally wouldn't make them a monopoly.

Crowdfund a Moon Monolith Mission?

mweather Re:Useless Piece of Crap (199 comments)

Why not just build some completely useless pyramids instead? All the benefits of the monolith, but you can actually visit the finished product.

mweather Re:Useless Piece of Crap (199 comments)

Yeah, it's only the minimum wage equivalent of 13,000 man years. That's almost nothing.

They don't need a warrant or suspicion to search cars within 100 miles of the coast or an international border. That's the entire state of Florida.

Our Lazy Solar Dynamo — Hello Dalton Minimum?

mweather Re:Global climate != Local weather (571 comments)

It's pretty much arbitrary. It doesn't really matter where you put the baseline, the point is the variation.
