LulzSec Leader Sabu Unmasked, Arrested and Caught Collaborating

rozz Re:He was arrested (511 comments)

...said an FBI official "we're chopping off the head of Lulzsec"

Considering that Lulzsec was declared dead and was ceremoniously buried like a year ago, isn't that necrophilia or something !?

rozz Re:That all makes sense for SUVs . . . (695 comments)

Where do all these electric cars get their power from? It's okay to pollute wherever the power plants are built, just as long as it's not in the city limits, eh?

yes it is! ... same as it is ok to shit in the bathroom but not in the kitchen .. got it now?

Sahara Solar To Power Half the World By 2050

rozz Re:Well, we've finished with the hard part (363 comments)

quite effective your comparison, unfortunately it is totally flawed.
First, selling black market energy is quite a bit harder than selling black market diamonds.
As for the oil comparison, energy is a market-ready product, oil is not; it is usually transported to a western refinery which produces the final product and therefore the origin country ends up with a very low fraction of the benefits generated from the whole oil-processing chain.

178 Arrested In US/EU Credit Card Cloning Ops

rozz Re:Spain, Really? (103 comments)

TFA is to PC to say it outright, but putting Romania at the head or the list says it is a Gypsy operation. These are multi-generational career criminal families. And the Spanish police seem unable to do anything about it. There was a good documentary on the BBC:

How Gypsy gangs use child thieves

really? bet you never had contact with a gypsy your whole life.

I am a big fan of BBC documentaries almost all are very well done. The problem with those is that not any dummy can understand. Sometimes I cannot believe what some ppl get from such documentaries. And although I have not seen this one, sounds like it was your case too.

Gypsies are "low-tech" crime experts .. small time thieves, children/women exploitation, etc. The vast majority are illiterate and the bosses make no exception. And probably an even bigger problem is that you cannot count on them. Not even for using a counterfeit card to get the money out of the ATM .. even if they manage to do it, they will run away with the money or try to keep most for themselves.

This operation is way too high-tech for a gypsy clan .. at least for now. And judging by their appetite for education that is not going to change anytime soon.

How Artificial Intelligence Is Changing Music

rozz since you asked... (261 comments)

If this goes on, will the major labels and studios actually need musicians and actors?

yes .. both dead and alive ones ... and some 3D rendered ones too .. the more the merrier

In the future, it could be harder to make money playing guitar with all of the competition from dead or retired artists

so? if you can't play the guitar better than a dead guy, why should you make any money?
plus, a decent guitar player should always be able to make some bikinis "dissapear" .. that not enough as a reward?

and if guitars and guitar players dissapear forever so what?

It's Not the 15th Birthday of Linux

rozz Re:Who cares? (261 comments)

I don't have evidence either way. Just belief.

you do have a brain though .. a brain which Thinks ... if all you needed was Belief, you would have had a simple on/off switch instead.
actually, some of you believers truly act like you do

Why should someone be upset that: 1. different people believe different things and 2. people act upon the things they believe?

because you are not alone in this world and your acting always interferes with other people... and guess what, that tends to be upsetting

Start-Up Genetically Modifies a Better Biofuel Bug

rozz Re:Algae-Biodiesel Could Turn Into Global Turmoil (124 comments)

Would you assume that if the U.S. were running out of money we'd go ape-shit?

YES. As a matter of fact a lot of you already did. Just open the tv sometime.

Actually, I do not disagree with your point; it is a 100% valid one but it is just one of the multiple possibilities; grandparent's point is another one; and so on
And your comparison truly sucks.

Melodyne - the new revolution in music production

rozz rozz writes  |  more than 6 years ago

rozz (766975) writes "The creators of Melodyne are cooking "Direct Note Access", the coolest music production technology to ever hit the shelves. Basically, you can take any track, locate a chord, split it in notes, modify the individual notes as you wish and get a new chord that sounds as natural as the original. In fact it sounds so good, you can swear it was played like that from the beginning. Even more, one can take separate samples and automatically put them in sync. The tempo of the drums sample doesn't match the guitar track? No problem, with a press of a button it will.

The possibilities are truly amazing. Did you hit a wrong note or played it too long/short? No need to re-record, just locate the wrong notes and correct them with a few clicks. Wanna mix and match the best musical performances ever? No problem, you only need a mouse and some patience. Your guitar playing skills are non-existent or your old guitar sounds like a hoarse dog? No problem, Eric Clapton's Stratocaster will play your song.

P.S. Alternate link for downloading the original presentation (go easy on this one, they probably cannot handle a slashdot avalanche)."
