Samsung's Position On Tizen May Hurt Developer Recruitment

noh8rz10 Re:But (93 comments)

I hope in the Apple tradition it is $666, and when you lose it like you lost your other ultra-losable hardware you make a Frowine face so hard it freezes that way.

why would you say something mean? that makes me feel bad.

Samsung's Position On Tizen May Hurt Developer Recruitment

noh8rz10 Re:But (93 comments)

I like to wear watches. Recently lost my watch, Frownie face. But I don't want to get a new one because I'm holding out for an iwatch later this year. In the meantime, my wrist feels naked! I just hope the iwatch is sub $400.

The implications of this research are huge, from mammoths to saber tooth tigers. I'm excited to see what they add to the zoo next! But they can't try to control it too tightly... life will find a way...

point granted, the "powered by" slope is a slippery one. but saying the car is powered by thermoelectrics is like saying it's powered by suspensions.

'Thermoelectrics' Could One Day Power Cars

ok but then the car is still powered by fuel. in your scenario you would still need an external combustion engine to produce heat.

Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

noh8rz10 Re:Militia, then vs now (1633 comments)

Rather it is the one document higher than the Constitution, the document that affirms that none of these rights are provided by laws. And that one always has the right to replace the government or constitution when it fails to work.

the magna carta?

noh8rz10 Re:Militia, then vs now (1633 comments)

here's the deal. california cities use very little water. 80% of the water in this state is used by agriculture. only 10% by people. An a large part of the agriculture water is used to grow stupid crops, like rice or feed for chinese cows. if farmers in california grew climate appropriate crops then everybody whould have enough water.

'Thermoelectrics' Could One Day Power Cars

noh8rz10 power cars? technically no (174 comments)

technically, you would still need an energy source (gasoline, natural gas, batteries) to power the cars. thermo electrics could make it more efficient by recycling waste heat. but the thermoelectrics themselves would not power the cars.

San Francisco's Housing Crisis Explained

noh8rz10 Re:Simple problem, simple solution (359 comments)

the availability of housing in mountain view has exactly zero impact on the availability of housing in SF. SF is a hip urban city while Mtn View is a suburban community. If you're priced out of housing in mtn view then you're definitely not moving to SF. If you can afford to live in SF, then you live there because you want to and not because you couldn't find a place in mtn view.

SF does not feel the ripple from mountain view!!!!! stop being illogical!!!!! you're saying that if the price of a honda accord went up $2k it would drive people to buy a lexus.

San Francisco's Housing Crisis Explained

noh8rz10 Re:Simple problem, simple solution (359 comments)

what facts are coming out of my ass? I can't believe I've been downvoted in this thread even though I'm the only one making sense. I've forgotten the point of this whole conversation anyway.

Look. The summary makes a false equivocation. "goog tried to build housing in mtn view and they wouldn't let them, so where are people to go? they have to go to san francisco!". false false false.

the housing crisis in san francisco has nothing to do with the ability to build new projects in mtn view. san francisco is a hip urban city, while mtn view is a suburban community. You can buy houses in mtn view for OM less than it would cost in SF. so compared to availability in SF, there are still plenty of available places on the peninsula or elsewhere in the bay.

what you're effectively saying is, "honda raised the price of an accord by $2k, so now I have to buy a lexus!"

mod me down now, bitches! after I just owned everybody with my logic and oratory.

Google adds permission blocking to Android, then removes it.

noh8rz10 noh8rz10 writes  |  about a year ago

noh8rz10 (2716597) writes "An extremely important app privacy feature was added in Android 4.3, allowing users to install apps while preventing the app from collecting sensitive data like the user's location or address book. However, the feature has actually been removed in Android 4.4.2, which was released earlier this week.

When asked for comment, Google told us that the feature had only ever been released by accident — that it was experimental, and that it could break some of the apps policed by it. We are suspicious of this explanation, and do not think that it in any way justifies removing the feature rather than improving it."

iCloud keychain - hot or not?

noh8rz10 noh8rz10 writes  |  1 year,28 days

noh8rz10 (2716597) writes "In Mavericks and iOS 7, Apple released an iCloud keychain which is basically a version of 1Password that's built into the OS. The key differentiator is that the keychain works directly in the iOS Safari, whereas 1Password you need to exit to their app — no browser plug ins allowed.

Given PRISM etc, I'm reluctant to give Apple all my passwords. They claim that the keychain is encrypted in such a way that they can't read it, which if true would seem to prevent NSA concerns. Does anybody have any insight onto this? Is it truly "safe" from apple and NSA?

Specifically, the inter webs says it uses 256 bit AES encryption. Does that mean they don't have the keys?

Here's their FAQ, which has all the necessary info:http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5813?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US"

iPad grows to 128GB, directly targeting Surface Pro, ultrabooks

noh8rz10 noh8rz10 writes  |  about 2 years ago

noh8rz10 (2716597) writes "holy moly! iPad gets a heavyweight sibling, clicking in at 128GB. This places it in range of storage for Surface Pro and ultrabooks. It's clearly targeted at the professional market, as the press release cites xrays and cad files as reasons. Should M$ be afraid? Methinks so. Best part, pricing is growing by log 2. Just as the 32GB version is $100 more than the 16, and the 64 is $100 more than the 32, this new version is $100 more than the 64!"

Major Apple shakeup - Forstall out; iOS executive fired for maps debacle?

noh8rz10 noh8rz10 writes  |  about 2 years ago

noh8rz10 (2716597) writes "Wow, just wow. Apple fires Scott Forstall, who grew iOS from its inception. Rumors say its the Maps, and problems with Siri as well. Jony Ive taking a larger human interface role, which will probably kill the skeumorphic interfaces that he hates. Browett out as well as the retail head; he never won the trust of the community. What does such a major shakeup say about Tim Cook's leadership? Decisive action, or flip-flopping?"

Verizon shipping iPhone 5 unlocked, no jailbreaking or rooting needed.

noh8rz10 noh8rz10 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

noh8rz10 (2716597) writes "Verizon's iPhone5's are unlocked, and can be used on AT&T, T-Mobile, and possibly other carriers (internationally perhaps?). Word is that FCC agreements forced this to happen. Perhaps the agency is earning its keep and enforcing laws for the good of citizens?

HuffPo:
The Verizon version of the iPhone 5, which went on sale Friday, came with an unexpected feature: it works on the network of AT&T and many other phone companies, as well as on Verizon's.

It's the first time Verizon, the country's largest cellphone company, has sold a phone that works on competing U.S. networks with no complicated hacking, or "unlocking," procedures.

Last year, the first shipments of the Sprint iPhone 4S were unlocked and worked on AT&T, but Sprint later issued software updates that turned off that capability.

Verizon Wireless spokeswoman Brenda Raney said Monday that Verizon does not plan to relock the iPhone 5."
