noh8rz3 Re:With all due respect... (257 comments)

Android App Lets You Steal Contactless Credit Card Data

noh8rz3 Disaster waiting to happen (221 comments)

This was a disaster waiting to happen. Google tried to go from 0 to 60 in their android development, and did not properly consider the ramifications of their design decisions. Now we have
1) an insecure OS that provides all sorts of information to any app
2) unfiltered app stores that allow any malware to be posted and purchased
3) poorly designed NFC system.

As a result,, ALL NFC systems are less safe thanks to these android design decisions. Way to go, Goog.

Windows Phone 8 Officially Unveiled

noh8rz3 Re:I'm excited (414 comments)

I agree... I have an lg optimus V on VMo which is okay but nothing too special. it's slow and makes calls. I hate the app store and don't trust it not to get malware. one of the programs i downloaded is a game called "plumber" in which you align pipes to move water from start to finish... it has banner ads that are apparently tied to keywords... because all of the ads are for plumbing supplies! targeted advertising ftw!

Google's Nexus Tablet To Be Unveiled Next Week

noh8rz3 good luck to google (198 comments)

I'm not surprised that they're going to 7" because they need to get out of the ipad shadow. it's a couple reasons - 1) they can't achieve comparable quality at the same price point as the ipad, 2) apple has gobbled up all the components.

The problem is that in the fall apple is releasing an ipad mini which will dominate the 7" space as well. if google is true to form then their announcement this evening will be "look what we're releasing in a couple months" while apple is usually "look what is now available at the apple store."

so in short, good luck to google because i know people there and they try real hard, but they're going to need it!

noh8rz3 Re:Not Intended to be Industrial Grade (174 comments)

Another way that samsungs are inferior to iPhones. Apple products don't offer that feature. Pin or slide to unlock only. I'm mwaiting for Siri unlock capability. My voice is my passport. Verify!

The street car systems were failing and unsustainable. Another company came in with a viable business model. Conspiracy? Evil?

Btw that wiki sucks if it says "there is general agree,ent that..." I will add a tag saying citation is needed.

Ask Slashdot: How to avert the impending Slashdot monoculture?

noh8rz3 noh8rz3 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

noh8rz3 (2593935) writes "Why is /. becoming a homogenous monoculture of thought? We all know which are the "popular" subjects and which are the "verboten" subjects. To break the rules mean you get down modded, bad karma'd, and your dissent is silenced because peeps with negative karma get filtered out.

Why is this happening? Is it the moderation system, which encourages the bad behavior of squashing your foes? Is it a problem with tone, where everybody becomes more strident? Is the problem with the Acs?

How can we maintain a vibrant diverse culture here at Slashdot?"
