Google Hopes To One Day Replace Gmail With Inbox

mythix tried it for a week, switched back to gmail (239 comments)

email is a productivity tool. Inbox is not. only 5 emails fit on my screen, the rest is bloat, whitespace and features that are cool at first, but I don't use them anymore after 2 days...

Why the Trolls Will Always Win

mythix This is not trolling at all (728 comments)

death threats and false claims of prostitution is not what I call trolling... this is just criminal behavior.

trolling is harmless, like saying you like apple in a windows post.
saying you will rape OP's mom and kill his dad because he posts about windows, is not trolling.

mythix What if it's a licensed taxi driver? (282 comments)

What if a licensed taxi driver would use the app to make some extra money in his spare time?

he has all the requirements, but is still "stealing customers", would this also be against the law?

Facebook Apologizes To Drag Queens Over "Real Name" Rule

mythix Re:catering to the mentally ill (280 comments)

This is totally besides the point.

It's FB wanting to force people to use their real name, so they can identify you to do more stuff they shouldnt with your data.
And now that there's a giant move to Ello, or at least it's starting, they're backtracking.
They are catering to their profits, not to any subset of their users.

Lots of people use fake names, just because they dont want to use their real names. Not because we were all molested.

Elon Musk: We Must Put a Million People On Mars To Safeguard Humanity

mythix I really do not get these marsians (549 comments)

If we could build a colony on mars, a harsh, deadly environment, why couldnt we just build the colony here if it goes a little worse.

We'll need a gigantic amount of pollution to make earth worse of a habitat then mars, no?
I mean, it doesnt even have a decent atmosphere to protect us from outer space radiation or just space junk flying around...

3 Recent Flights Make Unscheduled Landings, After Disputes Over Knee Room

mythix Re:Anthropometrics (819 comments)

Why would I have to pay extra because I'm tall? I already have to pay extra for heavy luggage, while a fatty who's short has all the room and takes multiples of my weight on board, while harassing their neighbors with the fat rolls lunging over the arm rest...

Why are the flight prices always getting cheaper while the comfort gets worse, it makes no sense to me, airline comfort was already low.
I can fly from Holland to Greece for 5 euros, but I cant get some legroom if I want to pay 50? I'm not sure these people know maths...

Elementary OS "Freya" Beta Released

mythix emphasis on design and usability (209 comments)

"emphasis on design and usability which draws a lot of comparisons to Mac OS X"

I've been switching between win/linux/osx on a daily basis for a couple of years now, and I honestly have no clue where the idea comes from that OSX is superior when it comes to usability...

It's even the OS with the weirdest UI quirks IMO...
