CERN Antimatter Experiment Produces First Beam of Antihydrogen

nomorecwrd Re:First! (136 comments)

mmm... yeah, more like some sort of satellite to satellite weapon maybe.
What are the chances of hitting space debris of some sort?

Hold that thought... Can we use this thing to clean the orbit or the path before, let's say the ISS?

Smartphone Used To Scan Data From Chip-Enabled Credit Cards

nomorecwrd Re:Almost useless (236 comments)

Here in Chile PIN is mandatory... but cloning is still being done (a hidden camera usually captures your PIN)

News flash! Now they are cloning - and altering - the swipe machines, to capture everything including PIN and sending it through hi intensity bluetooth. The machines (GPRS -EDGE) are being switched without the merchant's knowledge.

Former Sega Employee Reveals Sega Pluto Prototype Console

nomorecwrd Re:How long before Sega asks for it back? (79 comments)

There's a story about a famous old clock that sat above the booths of a bank here in Chile. The bank used this clock as a kind of trademark, you could see it on every leaflet, every catalog and almost every paper this bank issued

One day, two guys appeared with blue overalls, helmets, and a stepladder.

Acting absolutely normal they remove this clock for maintenance reasons.... no one ever saw the clock again! there was no maintenance scheduled... it was the perfect crime!!

Wrong Fuel Chokes Presidential Limo

nomorecwrd Re:Um... (612 comments)

If you want to get really confused come down here: in Chile we use "Petroleo" or "Petroleo Diesel" refering to Diesel an "Bencina" for gasoline. So when you say "Petrol" my first though is: Diesel.

There has been 3D movies for decades, (50s or 60s... to lazy to check) but just recently the technology allow it to became mainstream.

Maybe it's time for a VR grand comeback.

Will Microsoft Extend Surface Model And Manufacture Windows Phones?

nomorecwrd Re:As a software company... (118 comments)

Ok, I'm a Playstation guy, so I didn't thought about the XBox when I wrote this.

My mind was on accessories like joysticks, etc. Still, my point may stand if you compare the evolution of the XBox with the evolution of Windows.

nomorecwrd Re:The two I legally need to have to go about my d (380 comments)

Then I hope you're happy and wish you luck on your own fantasy world where everybody is evil and crime is waiting for you around every corner. I sincerely hope you don't get shot by the guy next to you, who feel threatened just because he accidentally saw your gun, and thought you where after him.

Now I really feel sad for you, living at that level of fear. Do you dock and grab your gun everytime an old vehicle backfires or there is a loud sound? If not, then you should be worried, because the second shot is the one that may actually hit you.
I won't tell you where I live, 'cuz I don't want you around here carrying your concealed gun. (obviously here you'll be an outlaw).
Have you ever traveled abroad? Leave town? your bunker?

Finally I really, really hope your kids NEVER find your gun. (I'm sure everyone was certain the gun was off-limits for the kids)
Also do your deepest effort not to become this guy
