Tetris To Be Made Into a Live Action Film

rebelwarlock Why? (134 comments)

I don't... is there really nothing better that could be turned into a film? A good book, or perhaps even an original script? This seems like one of those films that should only be created when literally every other possible idea has already been done a few dozen times.

Lucky for you, this stuff is nice and shiny, so it makes a good substitute for tin foil.

How Our Botched Understanding of "Science" Ruins Everything

rebelwarlock What the fuck is this shit? (794 comments)

I made it almost halfway through the summary, but it's too much bullshit for me. Is there anything worth reading in the article, or is it just as bad?

U2 and Apple Collaborate On 'Non-Piratable, Interactive Format For Music'

rebelwarlock Fuck your interactivity (358 comments)

The "non-piratable" bit has been beaten to death by the other commenters already, so I won't bother with it. Instead, let's look at the other part: "interactive". No, I don't want to interact with the fucking music, Bono. I want to put on the music and have an epic soundtrack to my life. The only reason you think full albums are boring is that your music is boring.

Ask Slashdot: Any Place For Liberal Arts Degrees In Tech?

rebelwarlock Troll much? (392 comments)

I'm not convinced this isn't just a massive troll. There's no way this question is seriously being asked.

Say Goodbye To That Unwanted U2 Album

rebelwarlock Good (323 comments)

People acting like users have no right to complain about free shit need some perspective.

For example, do you like tofu? No? Well tough shit, it's free, and I'm going to force feed you three pounds of it. You have no right to complain about free food. Hell, I'll opt for stinky tofu while I'm at it. Here in Taiwan, people love that shit. Everyone who doesn't thinks it smells and tastes like raw sewage.

U2 is the stinky tofu of the music industry. You have people who like them, and people who can't imagine why you would find it necessary to inflict such pain upon yourself.

We should also have a lane for those damned elderly and children. They can't walk for shit, either.

Comcast Allegedly Asking Customers to Stop Using Tor

rebelwarlock Prove it (418 comments)

Comcast is exclusively run by assholes, but I'm not seeing any proof of this statement. People shouldn't get all up in arms about this claim until there's some evidence. I'm sure as hell not going to take some random asshole's word on it - I wouldn't even trust him to tell me if it's raining outside or not.

Oculus Rift CEO Says Classrooms of the Future Will Be In VR Goggles

rebelwarlock The worst use of VR ever (182 comments)

Yes, let's strap on VR goggles all day for classes which aren't enhanced in even the smallest way by VR. Hell, why stop there? Keep them on constantly. It'll be great when grocery shopping.

Paypal Jumps Into Bitcoin With Both Feet

rebelwarlock The summary is all over the place (134 comments)

What does Paypal have to do with exposing Satoshi?

As far as the main story goes, I wouldn't call it "jumping in with both feet" when they're not actually even enabling it on Paypal. They're just putting it on Braintree. While that might look like a huge investment, it fits Paypal's hobby budget pretty well.

John Romero On Reinventing the Shooter

rebelwarlock Re:Talk is cheap. (266 comments)

That's pretty much my attitude on it. He's not even useful as hype anymore because of how bad his reputation is now.

Just because you once pushed a commit doesn't mean you get to tell the owner to go non-profit.

Facebook Blamed For Driving Up Cellphone Bills, But It's Not Alone

I didn't factor in prepaid, so you have a cheaper plan than I do. Mine is from Fetnet, at 599.

Facebook Blamed For Driving Up Cellphone Bills, But It's Not Alone

rebelwarlock I never realized how bad it was (131 comments)

Have you ever seen documentaries where poor people have to spend hours every day getting clean water, and it just makes you step back and realize how fucking easy you have it to have clean water on tap at all times? That's how I feel looking at the cellphone data situation in the US. I'm paying for the single cheapest cellphone plan I can get here in Taiwan, and I get 1.5gb of data with that. And that limit only kicks in after the first six months of free unlimited data expires.

Sure, the facebook design is absolutely retarded, but I don't come close to my limit despite using facebook as a primary means of communication with most of my friends and family. Point your anger in the right direction.

That's down from 16,000,000 a couple years ago. So yes, that's a major loss.

The Apache Software Foundation Now Accepting BitCoin For Donations

rebelwarlock Who cares? (67 comments)

It's not exactly a magical leap powered by unicorns and fairies to have a bitcoin wallet. You might as well say they're using CSS pseudoclasses - it would be exactly as newsworthy.

TigerDirect.com blocking international access during black friday.

rebelwarlock rebelwarlock writes  |  about 10 months ago

rebelwarlock (1319465) writes "If you live outside the US and want to do some shopping from TigerDirect this weekend, you're out of luck. International visitors are currently being greeted by an "Access Denied" message when trying to visit any page on the server. They have been deleting the complaints left by international users on their Facebook page, but complaints left as comments on their own posts are still showing up. The excuse? "Our international servers are down." Of course they are."

Antivirus Founder, John McAfee arrested in Belize

rebelwarlock rebelwarlock writes  |  more than 2 years ago

rebelwarlock (1319465) writes "McAfee lives in Belize and he says that he has become a target of the Gang Suppression Unit. He says the GSU came busting into his research facility in Orange Walk, killed his dog, took his passport, handcuffed him and arrested him on a bogus weapons charge. McAfee says he’s a victim because he didn’t donate money to a known U.D.P. Orange Walk politician."
