Here's What Your Car Could Look Like In 2030

oldmac31310 Re:What these "futurists" usually ignore (143 comments)

I disagree with your assertion that about 100 years ago everyone knew how to grow their own food. Where did you come up with that? And, please, there is no excuse for not being able to cook if even just well enough to feed yourself.

oldmac31310 IDEO (143 comments)

When the presentation finally loaded and I took a look at some of it it left me with the impression that these IDEO people are just hipster douchebags. Nothing of any value or substance to see there. Next.

Blame America For Everything You Hate About "Internet Culture"

oldmac31310 Re:The French are the world's Standards Board (370 comments)

I think that women's toilets being cleaner than men's is a myth. Women can be filthy slobs just as much as men.

I'm sure someone will be proactive and will streamline engineer this all the way up the supply chain in order to actuate monetization of the deliverables.

Black IT Pros On (Lack Of) Racial Diversity In Tech

Does not seem to me to be a particularly intelligent fellow any time I've seen him interviewed or interviewing other people. Am I missing something?

Black IT Pros On (Lack Of) Racial Diversity In Tech

oldmac31310 Re:City life (459 comments)

My experience of this is purely cultural. Growing up, the poorer, working class white kids (in an almost 100% white society) largely eschewed the possibility of academic achievement and consequent self betterment. Even some of the smart ones would deliberately do poorly in tests so that they could stay with their friends in the dumbo class the following year, or go to the technical school to learn a trade. Nothing wrong with working in a trade, but even at age 12 it appalled me that they would limit themselves to this narrow path. But having said this, I might be much better off now if I had learned in school how to be a plumber, fitter, electrician.

Internet Archive Launches Arcade of Classic Games In the Browser

oldmac31310 Re:Sweet!! (94 comments)

I watched it and other things like every Transformers episode EVAR with my son. Never saw this stuff growing up so it was all new to me. Really enjoyed watching it with my son though. See it from a five year old's perspective and it helps lower to bar - in a good way.

MPAA Bans Google Glass In Theaters

oldmac31310 Re: Screw the cinema (357 comments)

I suppose you are being a smart arse, but drinking water is a basic human right and if I can't bring a bottle of my own tap water into a premises then the business that has such a policy can go to hell. And I'm happy to teach my kids to think in this principled way. Having bought the overpriced ticket I am under no obligation to buy their bottled water or food which cost way more than they would in an overpriced shop. Fuck you very much.

Psyco Ex blog takedown

oldmac31310 oldmac31310 writes  |  more than 3 years ago

oldmac31310 (1845668) writes "Surely it is wrong that this judge ordered the removal of the site. It is interesting that Morelli so easily complied. But don't be bamboozled by the negative bias of the NBC video and all of the other smoke and hidden mirrors. This site http://www.thepsychoexwife.com/ (now a legal fund link) was doing some good work particularly in the form of the forum (still up) for both men and women — and indeed children (think of the children). What is troubling is that though the blog was run anonymously, we know the names of the people involved. Why? The media? Of interest I hope to /. readers. This blog should stand. Judge Gibbons, eat dirt."
