The iPad Is 5 Years Old This Week, But You Still Don't Need One

pkinetics Fluff piece? (257 comments)

So the whole article could have been summed up into: Tablets are device that can be used to solve a problem, but they cannot be used to solve all the problems.

I hate articles that leave me feeling like I just wasted 5 minutes of my life reading only to realize it says nothing beyond: "Publish or perish. I must write something."

Obama Planning New Rules For Oil and Gas Industry's Methane Emissions

pkinetics Re:Talk is cheap now (202 comments)

Lol... Democrats solution to problems is throw money at things and not hold people accountable.

Neither side wants to dig into the underbelly of what is fundamentally wrong unless it greases their wheels for getting re-elected.

Four Facepalm Bugs In USPS Label-Printing Site

pkinetics I feel dumber having read part of this (182 comments)

I could actually feel my IQ points shriveling up while attempting to comprehend WTF I was reading.

I feel like a Windows machine that needs to be rebooted because all my CPU and memory cycles have been used by recursive stupidity.

Putting a MacBook Pro In the Oven To Fix It

pkinetics Re:Is it news because it was a MacBook? (304 comments)

Sometimes works. Can get anywhere from 10-30 minutes out of it. Just long enough to spin up the platters, and copy a crap load of data to a thumbdrive.

That can be all the time you need if all the data is kept in predictable locations

Microsoft Is Building a New Browser As Part of Its Windows 10 Push

pkinetics Re:Start over = new bugs + old bugs (248 comments)

Unfortunately, this is MS. Unless they explicitly disable any integration with other MS apps during development, they will just roll more of the crap features into, turning it back into the next generation of IE.

But hey, you can connect to your Xbox Live account on it, and emulate some games that you can play on your phone and such.

Microsoft Is Building a New Browser As Part of Its Windows 10 Push

pkinetics Re:rumor alert (248 comments)

I tried Syndicate and was dead in about 30 seconds. Mouse scroll speed was like Warp 6 with no way to slow it down.

Should Video Games Be In the Olympics?

pkinetics Re:I'm Gonna Say "Yes" (232 comments)

Nope. They'll just figure out a way to inject Olympic ads and crap into your game as part of your DLC.

So you will PAY them money to watch their ads.

In Iowa, a Phone App Could Serve As Driver's License

pkinetics Re:transfer the ID information to the police (207 comments)

Wait, how many states associates a driver's license with the vehicle registration?

Granted, it could be loosely inferred / deduced based on other relateable elements.

Additionally, as states are not required to share DMV records, or at least I don't think they are, lost my train of thought... Something relational data missing content, etc.
