Matchstick and Mozilla Take On Google's Chromecast With $25 Firefox OS Dongle

oh_my_080980980 Re:what brand smart TV? (102 comments)

"And I doubt that you are seeing may apps or channels being added for your "Smart TV" (I'm sure not)."

Well that's a stupid comment. Try researching before commenting. Yes new apps - they're not channels - are being added to smart tvs which makes this whole google chrome thing pure crap. You get this apps with your TV, bluray player and A/V receiver. Why the fudge do you need chrome. Frickin' pathetic. A fool and his money is quickly departed.

If you need a media server try Wild Media Server. It's very good and supports a lot devices.

oh_my_080980980 Re:Start menu usage dropped in lieu of what? (263 comments)

I never use pinning. I use the quick launch and the start menu and have short cuts on the desktop. Gee, I'm using the OS to *SUIT MY NEEDS* There's a novel concept....

Which should the reason NOT to use this approach after the USER outrage over eliminating the start menu. Seems to me that people wanted the Start menu and MS gained nothing by eliminating it.

Energy Utilities Trying To Stifle Growth of Solar Power

oh_my_080980980 Re:Charge for fixed costs (473 comments)

Ummm, so where is my fee for "right of way" use? Utilities are running lines through my property and are *not* paying me for the access. So if they want to jack up fees for something as stupid as dwindling usage, then I should be able to charge them a fee for "right of way."

Microsoft On US Immigration: It's Our Way Or the Canadian Highway

oh_my_080980980 FU Microsoft (363 comments)

You're talking out of the side of your mouth. By all means shift your workforce. Then let's have the IRS do an audit of your accounting and hiring practices and Federal government can deny you government contracts.

Microsoft On US Immigration: It's Our Way Or the Canadian Highway

oh_my_080980980 Re:Cake and eat it too (363 comments)

How is that the same argument? So having the government make sure that government issued visas meet their requirements is some how the government creating high wages, as opposed to the government creating lower wages.

Think before you post Zippy.

Microsoft On US Immigration: It's Our Way Or the Canadian Highway

oh_my_080980980 Re:People are not interchangeable (363 comments)

What?!? Hardly. It's called audits. It's easy enough to know who are the people they fired and the ones they replaced them with...to be plausible you have to have no accountability.

Seattle Passes Laws To Keep Residents From Wasting Food

oh_my_080980980 Re:Carrot, not stick (383 comments)

And yet if you read the article it doesn't. The same thing was applied to recyclables. People disposed of their recyclables properly and weren't fined. Too bad it doesn't help your narrative.

Seattle Passes Laws To Keep Residents From Wasting Food

Slashdot: "Seattle Passes Laws To Keep Residents From Wasting Food"

Seattle Times: "Seattle OKs $1 fine for adding too much food to garbage bins
Seattle residents could start getting small fines next year for putting too much compostable material into the trash."

Those two titles don't agree with each other. The goal is not about stopping food waste but to make sure that compostable material does not end up in the trash.

Somebody failed reading comprehension.
