U2 and Apple Collaborate On 'Non-Piratable, Interactive Format For Music'

oldmac31310 Look at Me, Me, Me!!! (199 comments)

This is just Bono/U2 desperately trying to be relevant and in the news in a currently hugely diffracted information era. There is nothing like Live Aid where pretty much the whole world was watching and the douchebag got to pontificate to a huge audience and have his ego pumped up. This is 80s 90s posturing and attention seeking and really we should ignore him and hope he goes away. I have been hoping for that for a good 30 years. Really, isn't it time they retired?

No, he shouldn't write songs as he is not qualified to do that either. He should buy an island and disappear.

Australian Police Arrest 15, Charge 2, For Alleged Islamic State Beheading Plot

oldmac31310 Re:Garbage Disposal (150 comments)

Sorry, no. Too easily abused. It is the sort of thing they did in the Soviet Union to quell dissent.

I call band-aids 'plasters' actually. Clearly I am not 'everyone'. Who ever says Cellophane? Are you thinking of 'Saran Wrap' which I call 'cling film'? Hoover works for me though.

Microsoft Paid NFL $400 Million To Use Surface, But Announcers Call Them iPads

oldmac31310 Re:football can cause brain damage (405 comments)

As a professional who edits images and does layout every working day, I have to point out that (in my opinion) small screen devices of any sort are pretty much useless. Any time I have to work on a laptop, I'm drastically slowed down because of the lack of real estate. Last resort only. Cropping images is trivial and a lame endorsement for any small screen device.

But AppleWatch might be conflated with the record label of that shite English band, the Beagles.

Don't be so cowardly about using a dictionary in future please. Your hopeless attempt at spelling renaissance is not even phonetically remotely like the actual word.

L.A. Times National Security Reporter Cleared Stories With CIA Before Publishing

Never a credible news source, so nothing surprising in this. But this reporter clearly has no integrity whatsoever.

I suspect that the use of bluetooth headsets was a deliberate attempt by users to look like douchebags. Maybe I'm wrong about that.

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."
