Apple Blocking iPhone Security Software

omgarthas We already have an anti-virus (148 comments)

It's called Apple App Store, they control absolutely every piece of software that can be installed in your Iphone, I can't see the need for any anti-virus solution...

Judge Lowers Jammie Thomas' Damages to $54,000

omgarthas Re:Stealing? (390 comments)

You are (wrongly) assuming that every CD given away is a lost sale

Imagine that some company sells a CD with just one track, which is a bell ringing for 3 seconds, and they sell it at 3,000,000 $.. If I gave one away, would it be a 3,000,000 $ sale lost? No, because it wasn't going to be sold anyway...

James Cameron On How Avatar Technology Could Keep Actors Young

omgarthas What's next? (404 comments)

So, for example, we'll have a secondary actor who plays the role of a big star who is also playing the role of an historical character...

If thats the future of Hollywood actors/movies, looks quite depressing....

Hot Or Not — 3D TV

omgarthas Re:meh. (419 comments)

You should check this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leisure_Suit_Larry:_Love_for_Sail!

The game also shipped with a "CyberSniff 2000", a sheet of numbered scratch-and-sniff paper, corresponding to a number displayed on the screen at a certain location, so that the player could get a scent of what the area the player was in smelled like.

I loved the beans smell

Blu-ray Capacity Increase Via Firmware

omgarthas Re:Pushing the spec... (232 comments)

How far could the spec be pushed using a decent CD-ROM laser. Could you squeeze 1GB out of a CD drive that was specked to 700MB before?

How about a DVD drive, could you make a 5.5GB single layer DVD disc?

I am curious to know...

I have bought a handful of 900MB CDRs

In 2009, I've donated (or will donate) to charity ...

omgarthas Re:36% Zilch? (at the time of the post) (596 comments)

Sorry but I can't find any reason to give the money that I have earned with my work to other people

I've seen well founded families go to bankrupt in less than a year, I'm saving every freaking euro I earn just in case I get fired or something happens.

If I had won an obnoxious amount of money in the lottery, sure, I'd donate a lot, but that's not the case and I'm a normal worker.
