About 40% of World Population Online, 90% of Offliners In Developing Countries

qbast Re: Developing (45 comments)

Look kids, SJW bot that runs his potty mouth as soon as he encounters a trigger word.
Of course developing countries are better off, that's the whole damn point of developing. The question is if the report, in the name of appeasing PC morons like you, also included self-destructing countries like Central Africa Republic and Somalia in the same group, which would likely skew the numbers badly.

Do they actually mean developing like "less developed than west Europe, but catching up" or is it just polite euphemism for third-world shitholes that are actually worse than in colonial times?

qbast Re:Anti-feminism is NOT misogyny (299 comments)

So what the word "misogyny" more commonly refers to ...

You can try to redefine any word you want. Let me check the dictionary ... nope, it still says that misogyny is hatred of women.

FTDI Removes Driver From Windows Update That Bricked Cloned Chips

qbast Re:Sorry They're Changing (572 comments)

Yeah, right. You also risk getting warranty calls from 10 000 of your customers and bad reputation for years, because it turns out that your FTDI chips were either not as genuine as you thought or their drivers got a bit overzealous and bricked genuine FTDI chips too.
