NYC Tech Sector Growing Faster Than City Can Keep Up

psychokitten Re:Transportation is not a limiting factor here! (243 comments)

Seriously. I don't even live in LA (But I've visited multiple times,) and in my city my short 14 mile commute takes an hour on the best days. If there's an accident or even someone simply pulled over by the police it's guaranteed to double it at the very least.

Scientists Work Towards Naturally Caffeine-Free Coffee

psychokitten Re:What's the point? (312 comments)

Low quality our poorly made coffee tastes like shit, and if its coffee being made at work it's most likely going to be both of those.

Quality, well-made coffee is a completely different story. The current method of making decaf though completely alters and ruins the coffee taste. I'd kill for a decaf that actually tastes like, you know, coffee.

Now Coke, there's something that tastes like shit.

TSA Groper Files Suit Against Blogger

psychokitten Re:Rough Decisions (699 comments)

Well, neither one of them pays shit - so the chances are if someone goes to work at one, they'll have to get a second job at the other just to pay their bills!

Japanese Supreme Court Rules TV Forwarding Illegal

psychokitten Re:dear media execs: you can't control this (177 comments)

I would have thought a 'murder' (like crows) would be a popular collective noun for lawyers around here. A murder of lawyers. It has a nice poetic ring and just rolls right off the tongue, doesn't it?

US Deploys 'Heat-Ray' In Afghanistan

psychokitten Re:Horrible (406 comments)

Ah yes, good ol' Oklahoma... Sad thing is, most of the people I've heard talking about that around here (Yeah, I'm stuck in that shithole of a state,) sided with the police about the whole thing.

History Repeats Itself — Mac & the iPad

psychokitten Re:Things the iPad needs (514 comments)

Sketchbook Pro is already available for the iPad and it's the one app that has me interested in one. The lack of a ready stylus and not really knowing how well a capacitive stylus works is what's holding me back. Oh, that and the price.

FCC Inquires About Controversial Verizon Fees

psychokitten Re:All US carriers suck (178 comments)

They did invade here - and all we got out of it was T-Mobile - you know, 7th largest mobile operator in the world? They settled into the American Way of cellphone service so readily it's hard to remember they're a multinational.

Digsby IM Client Quietly Installs Badware

psychokitten Re:FOSS, maybe? (259 comments)

People never mention Miranda because I imagine most people want to just install an IM app and start using it - not spend hours hunting down necessary plugins and tweaking it just to give it basic functionality.

That being said, I LOVE the concept of Miranda - it's just too much work and too much of a pain in the butt to bother with.

RadioShack To Rebrand As "The Shack"?

psychokitten Re:The radio industry is dying... (629 comments)

No DJs between 6pm and 6am? You don't know how truly lucky you are. I -wish- our radio stations had no DJs for any period of time, you get more of their inane babbling (whatever happened to entertaining, witty DJs?) than you get music. I'm just glad there's a Jack FM station here so I can at least hear SOME music on the radio.

SMS Hack Could Make iPhones Vulnerable

psychokitten Re:Good (254 comments)

Funny how you mention that since just the other day at work we were noticing how my Edge connection on T-Mobile is faster than a co-worker's 3G AT&T connection was.

Google Latitude Arrives For the iPhone — As a Web App

psychokitten Re:Look into the crystal ball (195 comments)

As someone who has to charge her phone multiple times a day I can say that something as simple as leaving an IM client running in the background takes a HUGE hit on the G1's already pathetic battery, if nothing else.

That is, assuming Android's brain dead memory manager keeps the program running in the first place, and doesn't decide to just kill it off for some reason.

Nvidia Lauds Windows CE Over Android For Smartbooks

psychokitten Re:While I haven't ever used Android (263 comments)

While Android may not be nearly as mature as Windows Mobile - from my own experience it's vastly inferior to Microsoft's product It has potential, but it still has a ways to go. Granted, my own experience may be influenced by the fact that HTC decided to make the G1 a fairly sub-par platform for Android, giving it next to no storage and leaving it very little ram to run apps after Android sucks up the majority of it - but the same hardware running WinMo would be able to do so much more.

Opera Launches Facial Gesture Capability

psychokitten Re:sorry... (199 comments)

You should be ashamed for doing that - in fact anyone who'd reply to you for the same reason should be ashamed too!

Not that I'd do anything like that, of course...

Oklahoma, Vatican Take Opposite Tacks On Evolution

psychokitten Re:Oklahoma? (1161 comments)

As another (unwilling,) Oklahoma resident - let me agree with this. This is one of the scariest places I've lived in thanks to the fine populace.

psychokitten Re:What Farhad Manjoo misses (368 comments)

You turn on the music and as you drive all around the country, you get the same music/talk/news whatever.

Thanks to Clear Channel and the like - you already get this for free in your car.

"News for Nerds."

The Simpsons. Video games. E3.
