Africa's Coming Cyber-Crime Epidemic

na1led Re:No Laws, No Service (142 comments)

That's not my thinking at all. What I'm saying, these countries don't abide by the laws that the rest of the world abide by, so why do we treat them as equal. What countries like Africa are doing is cyber war against us, so why do we sit on our fat asses and do nothing?

Africa's Coming Cyber-Crime Epidemic

na1led No Laws, No Service (142 comments)

So why the hell do we not cut them off from the Internet? Politicians want to restrict our Internet, but who give a ratz a$$ about where the real problems are at.

Just has to be enough for the space craft. Do like they did in the movie "the Philadelphia experiment".

If magnetic fields protect the earth, we can't the same be done to a space craft?

Trip To Mars Could Damage Astronauts' Brains

na1led Re:Another reason we're stuck on this blue planet (505 comments)

The same was said before Christopher Columbus. People feared the vast ocean just as much as we do space. It's just another obstacle to overcome.

Antivirus Software Performs Poorly Against New Threats

na1led Internet Part II (183 comments)

It will require a whole new Internet to keep bad guys out. One Internet with all the lock down measures in place, and one with all the free rain and dangers that come with it. I'm thinking this will all be done by companies like Google and Microsoft. They will probably have some options in the search engine to enable this.

US Firms Race Fiscal Cliff To Install Wind Turbines

na1led Re:There is no cliff (98 comments)

Yea, what's funny is the way they use the term. We go off the fiscal cliff Jan. 1, but it maybe temporary if lawmakers can intervene. So what, we fall off the cliff, but we levitate only partway down?

'Connected' TVs Mostly Used Just Like the Unconnected Kind

na1led Roku TV (217 comments)

I'm really surprised we haven't seen a TV with Roku built in. IMO Roku is the best IPTV box out there when it comes to simple design interface, and lots of Internet channels. If they could add UPnP it would be even better. I'm curious about Ubuntu TVs which should be coming next year.

UK Milk Supply Contains New MRSA Strain

na1led Re:Growth promotors (179 comments)

Meat is not healthy for you, and never was. Meat contaminates very easily, and most of the meat you buy today has been processed so much, it's not even real meat anymore. It's a known fact, vegetarian diet is much healthier and better for you!

Raspberry Pi vs. Cheap Android Dongle: Embarrassment of (Cheap) Riches

na1led Is it for your TV or other Project? (233 comments)

If you're looking for something to connect to a TV, the MK802 or MK808 is clearly the winner. If you're looking to make a toy, or run some lights, than Pi is the choice. I have the UG802 and it's very small/powerful for all that it does, but XBMC doesn't support HW decoding yet. Raspberry Pi looks cool, but the specs are lousy compared to the alternative. Another obvious choice that no-one mentioned are used Android Phones. I just upgraded my phone and have a Galaxy S phone no longer being used. Still looking for a good project to make use of it.

Mars-Like Conditions Sufficient to Sustain Earth-Bound Microbes

Life on Mars would mutate very rapidly due to higher radiations. Be interesting to see little alien monsters running around.

UK Milk Supply Contains New MRSA Strain

na1led Re:Growth promotors (179 comments)

If we all stopped eating meat. We all would be much healthier, have lots more food for everyone, and population would increase another 3x because of it.
