PETA Condemns Pokemon For Promoting Animal Abuse

residieu Re:Funny (418 comments)

None of those players were innocents. Right from the start every one of those players is killing innocent rats or snakes or wild dogs that didn't do anything to anyone. Then selling their body parts off as trophies.

PETA Condemns Pokemon For Promoting Animal Abuse

residieu Re:Funny (418 comments)

Doesn't sound as funny as their parody of Cooking Mama. Here they kind of have a point, pokemon is basically wandering around engaging in pick-up dog-fights.

God just put all the evidence supporting evolution and the billions of years old universe there to mess with us. He's really quite a jerk.

residieu Re:Whats the problem? (272 comments)

Just because you have a backup plan, and it works, doesn't mean the launch was perfect.

Motorola Ordered To Recall Android Phones and Tablets In Germany

residieu Recall? (190 comments)

Wouldn't it be better to get them to push an update that disabled the scrolling? A recall would get back devices still at the retailers, but I doubt people who already own one will be returning them voluntarily,

Rick Falkvinge On Child Porn and Freedom Of the Press

residieu Re:Why!? (580 comments)

I cannot think of anything worse than someone having Child porn

Certainly actually molesting the child is worse than having a video of that act.

residieu We're sorry. (233 comments)

We're very deeply sorry that we got caught. We did not intend anyone to know about this deception. In the future, we promise to do a better job at hiding our dishonest activities so that we do not get caught again.

Study Finds Unvaccinated Students Putting Other Students At Risk

residieu Re:There's a shock... (1025 comments)

I've got a bullet-proof vest for you here. I'm going to start shooting at you whether you put it on or not. It's not guaranteed to save you (I may hit you in the head), but it's up to you.

Personally, I'd rather take the potential immunity (even if it's only an 80% chance) than go completely without

Study Finds Unvaccinated Students Putting Other Students At Risk

residieu Re:They're stupid (1025 comments)

I'm sure research done in someone's spare time, by someone without a medical education is FAR more effective than that of all the medical professionals who are suggesting that AC get these vaccinations done.

Sources Say ITU Has Approved Ultra-High Definition TV Standard

residieu Re:useless aspect ratio (341 comments)

I like to have two or three terminal windows displayed side-by-side. Wider monitors help with that.

And most pdf readers have a zoom function, change the zoom until you see the whole page at once. I'm not sure how the unused space makes the monitor USELESS.

Sources Say ITU Has Approved Ultra-High Definition TV Standard

residieu Great (341 comments)

Now throw out those old TVs in crappy old 3D HD and buy NEW TVs in UltraHD!! And now that cable companies have started giving out HD programming for free, rather than charge extra they get the option to charge for UltraHD content instead. Great for everyone!

Oh, and if you sit at home and look at your TV screen with a microscope, I guess you can see a little more detail now.

Ubisoft Claims PC Piracy Rate of 93-95%

residieu Re:DRM worked out then.. (464 comments)

Or even just driving the legitimate buyers away. They may not turn to piracy, but if 50% of your paying players leave (and go buy someone else's game instead), that drives up the proportion of your players who are pirates.
