The CDC Is Carefully Controlling How Scared You Are About Ebola

puto Re:Ebola threat (478 comments)

I haved worked on and off in Central and South America for the last 20 years, and while healthcare might be free, it is not up to par with what the CDC docs can provide. There are many old wives tales on how to cure disease in those countries(brujeria) and latin american people tend to be touchy feel, kisses on cheeks, eating out of each others plates, sharing food with babies, not wearing condom... While it might be a much richer place, common sense does not abound there.

News Aggregator Fark Adds Misogyny Ban

puto Re:Much ado about nothing (748 comments)

I will mention her. GM are her initials. I have been a member of Fark since 2001, and watch her epic rise and subsequently taking over the reigns from Drew. She is the same girl who wrote an article for MS Magazine about her being a slut in college and blaming it on the guys, not herself. http://msmagazine.com/blog/201...

Ecuador To Forge Ahead With State-Backed Digital Currency

puto Re:Wow (85 comments)

As someone who holds a Panamanian and Colombian passport, the Panama canal zone was amazing when the US ran it. Now it is a dump. The US wanted the canal so it forced a split between Panama and Colombia to become two countries.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

puto Re:Pft (962 comments)

I agree with you. I am open to what every sexuality you are. Brianna Wu is a transexual. And while she might be a man in woman's body, she has no cause no reason to speak on a natural woman's harassment in the workplace. Because in reality the majority of the population sees her as a dude in a dress. She has never experienced life as a woman who looks like a woman, who has been harassed as a woman, and her taking up a womans cause is not noble, it is attention whoring.

FAA's Ruling On Smartphones During Takeoff Has Had Little Impact

puto Re:If they approve allowing calls on planes... (128 comments)

I fly internationally and nationally quite a bit, and I work for a major cell co in the US. The majority of the people I see on planes using their phones are young kids and entitled soccer moms.

BlackBerry Back In Profit

puto Re:Outside of North America (67 comments)

Really? In Colombia Blackberries are going the way of the dodo. Cheap androids, iphones, and windows mobiles are the norm. The only people you really see with blackberries are people who have bought them off of Mercado Libre. A big clue in all of latin america is that I would say 80 percent of the people who have a blackberry have it for show and do not have a data plan, and just use them for plain text. I would also say this goes for Peru, Ecuador, Chile, and Argentina. Even when I was working between those countries in 2010-2011 blackberries were dropping in share. You also have to realize that people in Latin America will keep an iphone or an android in one pocket, and a blackberry or cheap phone in the other. They only haul out the expensive one when they are relatively safe.

How Tim Cook Is Filling Steve Jobs's Shoes

puto Re: Brand identity (209 comments)

Beats is a marginal product sold at an inflated price because it was lauded by Dr. Dre and people think it will make them seem cooler by wearing large gaudy headphones with Beats inscribed on them, when the same quality can be had for 20 bucks. As for as streaming, Beats is about 5 years late to the game.

The Feature Phone Is Dead: Long Live the 'Basic Smartphone'

puto Re:Rich(er) than you ludite here (243 comments)

I carry a almost three year old Samsung Galaxy S2, with an extra large battery. I can 3 days out of it, and also use it as a mobile hotspot, and even do most of my internet stuff I need to from the phone. I like not having three devices when one does all.

The Feature Phone Is Dead: Long Live the 'Basic Smartphone'

puto Re:It's All About The Data Plan (243 comments)

You are giing misinformation. 1. A large number of Verizons phones do not have sim cards due to them being CDMA in nature. 2. When a GSM, CDMA phone hits the network can request the IMEI and match the make and model on the phone automagically and most networks(especially where I work) will then place a data plan on device and then text the customer what has happened. I was recently using an unlocked HTC phone in Colombia, and it quit working and advised me to go by the local Claro office. I went in and they looked up my account and because the network had identified the phone as a model it did not support, it stopped all services. I put the sim card in an unlocked S2 and all was fine. At my employer when you call in, I can tell exactly what phone you are on, even though the one registered in the system is completely different.
