UK Man Arrested Over "Offensive" Tweet

ne0n Re:Tree of liberty (358 comments)

I find the queen and her arbitrary, controlling bitchy ways to be quite offensive. It's probably that smarmy, shit-eating "sit on my face" look that she's always got on.

Can I file suit against Her Ugliness or all those nasty spawn of hers?

UK Man Arrested Over "Offensive" Tweet

ne0n Re:Offense: (358 comments)

Well THAT is fucking offensive, the way you said "codifying" it sounded like "codpiece". Elizabeth II wants to bash your codpiece with her size 6 tasseled slipper for giving non-verbal offence.

Google Hopes To One Day Replace Gmail With Inbox

ne0n Re:"Ultimately, our users will decide" (239 comments)

So true. Now I'm stuck trying to figure out why this abortion called "Inbox" is being touted as for power users. Seems more like it's aimed more at ADHD kids on meth.

BlackBerry Will Buy Your iPhone For $550

ne0n Re:Does anyone here on /. plan on taking this offe (120 comments)

If I had an ipoophone I would totally take 'em up on it. It would be a neat feeling to be the only person in a country with a Blackberry passport, whatever that is.

Flaw in New Visa Cards Would Let Hackers Steal $1M Per Card

ne0n Re:Well... no. (126 comments)

The lucky sod with the 0.5 VISA card is probably immune to this scam.

Pigs at the trough, the whole lot of 'em. Who gives a fuck whether they're eating from the left or right side it's all the same.

Why CurrentC Will Beat Out Apple Pay

ne0n Re:Total nonsense (631 comments)

No customer wants to punch in a PIN but we do it anyway. Using a credit card vs debit card is no different. So there's Apple with a niche system that only works with a few iPhones, vs these CurrentC bozos with a convoluted scheme that should work with many devices yet requires jumping through hoops.

A handful of iPhone users vs an enormous base of merchants. I predict nobody wins this one.

Just torrent it FFS, come on people. Then start an exit node on your network.

DARPA Delving Into the Black Art of Super Secure Software Obfuscation

ne0n waiving my consultancy fee today (124 comments)

Pro tip for DARPA: use perl, hand out the source. Same end result but probably a few reverser suicides along the way.

Users Report Warping of Apple's iPhone 6 Plus

ne0n Re:Not just iPhone (421 comments)

But to release a high end phone with this obvious engineering deficiency is like a smack in the face to loyal Apple consumers.

Loyal apple customers needed a smack in the face anyway.

To Fight $5.2B In Identity Theft, IRS May Need To Change the Way You File Taxes

ne0n Re:Solution (410 comments)

With a lighter gov't and no IRS maybe the thumb on the scale wouldn't be necessary. Then if you eliminate the graft and pork from fighting scores of bogus wars, including the phony "war" on drugs, it's a huge net economic win that could put America back in the black.

Newsflash: it's not sustainable to employ the entire country in federal government. Didn't you guys learn anything from Greece?

To Fight $5.2B In Identity Theft, IRS May Need To Change the Way You File Taxes

ne0n Re:Thus the problem with the TEA party (410 comments)

You're right amigo. Gotta prop up that industrial-military complex or everything falls apart like Detroit. Can you imagine the utter FAIL if the USA became more peaceful like Canada or productive like China but hopefully without all the forced labor and communism...

To Fight $5.2B In Identity Theft, IRS May Need To Change the Way You File Taxes

ne0n Re:Simplify Taxes (410 comments)

I hope you're being sarcastic about simplification. Obviously the IRS is too quick, responsive and slim for its own good or there wouldn't be this problem. Fighting identity theft, as we've learned from TFA, requires a bloated bureaucratic behemoth barely capable of sustaining its own weight, sort of the lovechild of an aging tug-of-warrior with a flaccid former sumo star. More weight to throw behind this fight against fraud wouldn't hurt.

China Pulls Plug On Genetically Modified Rice and Corn

ne0n Re:Wow (152 comments)

People aren't much concerned about the natural pesticides which we've evolved to tolerate/enjoy over millions of years - it's the ignorant approach of engineering food to produce glyphosate-dependent staple foods or force crops to produce toxins and then letting it loose on the world. You can't prevent cross-pollination with natural crops. 20-50 years later when we find out it's toxic after all, who pays that bill?

Study: Ad-Free Internet Would Cost Everyone $230-a-Year

ne0n Re:$230 (611 comments)

Ghostery is my new convenient friend. Blocks the adwhores & leaves js-heavy websites functional without the NoScript whitelisting nuisance. With AdBlock Plus it's nearly perfect.

Android Wear Is Here

ne0n Re:Google play services required (129 comments)

Install apps from f-droid or via saved apk. I regularly backup all my Play apps on a sacrificial phone (no privacy, never gets used) for use on EDC devices that do not have Play installed. It's a win-win: privacy while having the ability to purchase apps as needed, like Swiftkey/Minuum/Fleksy (no dodgy warez thx) and Lucky Patcher takes care of the shitty "licensing" garbage. If/when you become ready to unplug from the matrix there are red pills everywhere.

Nathan Myhrvold's Recipe For a Better Oven

ne0n Re:the real question is... (228 comments)

Careful now, you'll confuse the 'Murricans with that Centigrade technology. And to answer your question, anybody who likes black & blue steak is liable to want a high temperature oven.

Seattle Approves $15 Per Hour Minimum Wage

ne0n Re:Only $15/hour? (1040 comments)

Let the Fed keep printing, the bankers keep on bailing out, the party will never end! Oh, and inflation is years away, IF EVER. No need to adjust prices or wages to account for millions of deficit dollars per American, soon to be billions. Thank the military contracts and foodstamps for preserving this country from the commies.
