The Internet Is Killing Local News, Says the FCC

sajuuk I'll believe it when I see it... (271 comments)

If by "local news" you mean Local TV News, well, there's none of that around me. On the other hand, if you mean "local newspaper" and "local radio" then you are sadly mistaken, at least up here in the Adirondacks. We get a high quality locally published and printed newspaper 6 days a week - with a superb website accompanying - but NOT replacing it. And the local NPR station isn't half bad either.

Senator Wants to Tax Internet Shopping

sajuuk Already paying sales tax (705 comments)

I live in NY. I already pay state sales tax on several websites that aren't located in New York State. Also, does this Senator have any idea how much record-keeping overhead this is going to create for small internet stores?

NASA Announces Final Homes of Shuttle Fleet

sajuuk Re:Houston has a problem. (195 comments)

I admit my mistake. I forgot that the shuttles and engines were assembled in the LA area. Nerdrage got the better of me. There's still no reason to snub Houston though. I still smell the dirty hand of politics in this decision.

NASA Announces Final Homes of Shuttle Fleet

sajuuk Houston has a problem. (195 comments)

And the problem is that they've gotten snubbed due to politics. Being reminded that the USS Intrepid (on display in NYC) was involved in the early days of the space program, I can understand one going to NYC. But the closest thing LA has to being involved is the fact that it is near Vandenburg AFB, where the shuttle almost launched from. Any claim about "locations being chosen for their value to the american public" is a load of bull. The entire middle of the country is nowhere near any of the shuttles with these chosen locations.

Sony Wants To Put Your Game Saves In the Cloud

sajuuk Dear technology industry... (224 comments)

F**k the cloud. Until there is constant high-speed internet access available across the globe, I reserve my right to retain my information locally, with the option to backup my saves to this so called "cloud." Be it saves, financial data, email, or documents whatever. Call it paranoia, but I'd rather be the one responsible for maintaining the integrity of my data.

Why haven't you bought a tablet?

sajuuk Combination (459 comments)

Combination of Price and Need fulfilled by other device(s). For now, my iPod (when combined with MobileNoter), Netbook, and that archaic thing called "Paper" are meeting my needs just fine. I'll get a tablet when the price comes down and they have a good one that has a hardware keyboard that slides out at a reasonable price.

Gamers Abandoning DS, PSP In Favor of Smartphones

sajuuk Hearing... (305 comments)

Hearing it but not seeing it. I'll stick with my PSP and DS so that my phone's battery isn't drained when I actually need it. Come to think of it, my PSP and DS also have better active use battery life than a phone does. Until that issue is resolved, smartphone gaming will never overtake handheld console gaming. Also, smartphone gaming requires you to actually OWN a smartphone. I'll stick with my relatively simple phone that doesn't give my carrier a chance to "accidentally" charge me for data minutes I didn't use. All it needs to do is make/receive calls and text messages (and frankly I could do without those too).

Corporations Hiring Hooky Hunters

sajuuk This is sick... (610 comments)

On both levels. You've got people using their sick days when they aren't sick while we've got near-record unemployment levels. I had a job from July 2009 to June 2010, never took a mental health day, worked overtime when requested, and got laid off in June thanks to NY state cutting funding for state-funded private agencies. These people have (presumably) good paying jobs and are willingly wasting their SICK DAYS to go do whatever while some of us have been trying to find a job that doesn't require us to relocate an absurd distance. Go to work you lazy bums. And people wonder why the rest of the world thinks that Americans have no work ethic... Granted, I'm not supporting employers stalking their employees outside of work. Thats just wrong.

Crowdfunding To Build a Copyleft Photo Archive of the Adirondack Mountains

sajuuk sajuuk writes  |  about a year ago

sajuuk (1371145) writes "After several years of getting fed up with a lack of good stock photography for the area that I live in (as well as constantly having to explain that I don't live in a shack in the woods), I have decided to begin a Kickstarter campaign to simultaneously build a copyleft photo archive of life in the Adirondack Park and publish a photo-essay about the same subject. If the funding is successful, I will release all photos I will license all photos I take over the course of the year that the project will run as Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported, allowing free use for all who wish to use them. The photos will include subjects such as landscape, waterscape, architecture, and of course, human interest. Check out the project here: 52 Weeks: The Adirondack Life."
