Apple Announces iPhone 5

rhade Re:remember when slashdot was good?! (1052 comments)

What city do you live in that has the roaming gangs of NFC scanning master thiefs? Honestly, here's some wild speculation on my part, the chance of someone being out, with this technology, within what, a metre of you?, for long enough to steal your information, must be ridiculously small. Yet I would assume you drive a vehicle of some sort with a much higher probability of death and destruction. This is also assuming its a one factory auth system. Honestly.

Why Facebook's Network Effects Are Overrated

rhade Re:When facebook came out ... (183 comments)

If you search for Facebook itself inside the Facebook app *not an Inception reference*
Then you will find 67,772,408 people have liked the page.
I think this shows that even of the 800^10*6 people on Facebook only 70^10*6 actually like the service

Android Passes iPhone In US Market Share

rhade Re:Both are growing, however (550 comments)

It is telling to note, that both Android and iPhone are growing market share at the expense of Blackberry and others, rather than at the expense of each other.

They are obviously new sales, otherwise the market would be growing. Most sensible people will be buying iPhones until Google stop demanding an Internet connection to use their search engine instead of installing to local SD card.

seriously you must be trolling but i'll bite

wtf is the point of a search engine without the internet? your perfect world is a search engine that is locally installed and has to be updated constantly....which uses the internet to get your results anyway?

and what is a 'smart phone' without the internet?

Homer: You're right, Marge. Just like the time I could have met Mr. T at the mall.

The entire day, I kept saying, 'I'll go a little later, I'll go a little later...' And when I got there, they told me he just left. And when I asked the mall guy if he'll ever come back again, he said he didn't know. Well, I'm never going to let something like that happen again!

Best language for good access to filesys controls?

rhade rhade writes  |  more than 6 years ago

rhade (709207) writes "After an exhaustive search of all file managers I could find readily available on the internets, I cannot find one that I am truly happy with, so what is left to do other than write my own. But with all the options available to me, what do you think is the best language to write a cross platform (Win *nix OsX) file manager with the required fine grain control of numerous filesystems?"

Is a perfect object possible?

rhade rhade writes  |  about 7 years ago

rhade (709207) writes "I know this isnt along the conditions of 'stuph that matters' i'm just curious what the community thinks. A cube is described as a 6 sided 3 dimensional objects where all sides are the same(length) now this works well in paper, but could an object actually be created? You could make one with a degree of accuracy, metres to the closest centimetre, centimetre to the closes millimiter, and so on. This would follow on all the way down to the atomic scale, could you make a cube that is x atoms by x atoms by x atoms? But even then as they move around the shape would not be static. Your thoughts?"
