Saudi Arabia Calls For Global Internet Censorship Body

packslash Re:Censorship - part of the 10 year plan (678 comments)

I've seen some misinformed fantasy posts on slashdot before but this is a contender for crackpot 2012. Care to provide any tangible evidence of how the "The Muslim Brotherhood is already entrenched in the US Federal government due to the Obama administration" and no his middle name is not sufficient.

packslash Re:My pet peeve... (543 comments)

"(although I do buy and love Apple's laptops)." which have a proprietary connector. Apple's new connector is reversable and better than micro usb.

Eric Schmidt Doesn't Think Android Is Fragmented

packslash Re:Eric Schmidt, master of non-answers (431 comments)

your theory falls down when one realizes that winphone7 was so late to market. If windows phone 7 came out in 2008 it would be doing a lot better with the "general Public" Marketing has very little to do with the iPhone's and IOS's lasting success. Also using your salesman incentive argument win phone 7 should be doing better as ms actually pays.

Eric Schmidt Doesn't Think Android Is Fragmented

packslash Re:Eric Schmidt, master of non-answers (431 comments)

fragmentation isn't a marketing term for about 10 million samsung galaxy S owners. "it's amazing to me that in the Android world you can buy a brand new Android phone with an OS 2 versions out of date, and that phone will never be upgraded. THAT is a problem. not talking about 4 year old phones not getting the latest release. We're talking about brand new phones that are out of date, out of the box. This isn't a fairy tale." Sounds like a marketing term to me!

Is Apple Turning Into the Next "Evil Empire"?

packslash Re:Too Late! (722 comments)

you just owned yourself. The fact that you can choose not to support them demonstrates alternatives. Something that microsoft of old didn't allow thru despicable means. Apple is a capitalistic business that offers good products nothing more or less. Take off that shiny hat it's messing with my reception.

Is Apple Turning Into the Next "Evil Empire"?

packslash Re:What (722 comments)

oh come on! all the damage apple have done? You mean like push forward new technologies again and again and create completely new categories of products to make computing easier for the average person. Undermining the consumer? What absolute complete basement dwelling geek babble. News flash they are the number one computer manufacturer in customer satisfaction surveys for the last several years. As a company you don't accomplish that by "undermining your customers" You may very well know what evil means but you clearly aren't using it correctly.

Steve Jobs Taking Medical Leave of Absence

packslash Re:Fucking stupid (471 comments)

It's because Apple's not based on product, it's based on image. If anything seems like it could even start to threaten that image, people want out before it crashes.

yah cause Apple's iphone and ipod aren't sucessful "products". How does this guy get 5 insightful for that crap of a sentence. Saying apple isn't based on quality products definitely comes from someone that's never used any of their products.

Windows 7 To Skip Straight To a Release Candidate

packslash Re:It's not aimed at Vista users (856 comments)

"Windows 7 is likely more aimed at XP users and people considering the unreasonably expensive switch to Mac." it's funny how people spout this mantra. Unless you are pirating software (windows and everything else) and building the system yourself. Mac's are not more expensive for the same hardware and are generally better quality to boot. I use both pcs and macs here. both windows and OS X are very stable now days. OS X however is a nicer computing experience if you care about such things.

"Apple has their own proprietary format called AAC"
