Should the U.S. bomb Syria?

sensationull Re:Chemical Weapons Suck (659 comments)

If lives were important, we'd be in Africa solving poverty and treatable disease.

If they were important the US may even try to tackle those things within their own borders as well.

Ask Slashdot: Enterprise Level Network Devices For Home Use?

sensationull Re:Huh? (241 comments)

Exactly this, the old stuff keep's going, the new stuff is junk. Dynalink made an epicly bad adsl2 modem which our isps were giving out. Burnt out one every three months with basic use, hooked up through ups and line surge protectors running at about 10mbits. The things were just that poorly put together with bga chips, inadequate cooling and memory. Got through four a year under warranty.

In comparison I still have some old adsl gear that works, tops out at 8mb but at least it was designed not just badly copied by some clueless Chinese foundry somewhere for the lowest possible cost for the highest possible profit.

Steve Ballmer Replaces Don Mattrick As Xbox One Chief

sensationull Well, that seals it... (343 comments)

What little chance it had left it has now lost, tell us Steve, how much more boxy are you going to make it, how many more user hostile features are you going to add, what useful features can be stripped out and replaced by junk. By the time it launches it will be able to search for your keys in 30 different languages, tell you are about to have a heart attack, that you are due for a prostate check and that you have 50 new marketing emails from facebook. The one thing it won't be able to do is play games.

sensationull Re:Crippled crap... (232 comments)

Yeap, also a nice little monoculture for Apple to exploit too, next up government subsidies for Apple directly, have they found oil somewhere. Meet the new MS of old, just twice as nasty.

Ask Slashdot: Mac To Linux Return Flow?

sensationull Re:iOSification? (965 comments)

Wow iSCSI initiator, really, that has been included or a quick download for every version of Windows since Server 2003, I think Vista+ had it in by default. I stand by my opinion that Macs really are toys that you are just borrowing off the meanest most immature kid in the playground.

Engineers Build "Self-Healing" Chips Capable of Repairing Themselves

sensationull Re:More accurate to say "More resilient chips"? (68 comments)

Thank you, that was what I was about to say, massively redundant, cool but it does not actually repair itself back to the way it was before, as it 'heals' it uses up that ability.

Pwnie Express Releases Android-Based Network Hacking Kit

sensationull Re:Yay, a decent OS to run on my Nexus 7 (35 comments)

Go on fanboys, mod me down for being right, I own one and have had to return it once thanks to faulty hardware and wait months for them to fix 4.2 to deal with Bluetooth even remotely stably and for it to bring up the start screen icons in less than ten seconds. Before anyone starts spouting the fanboy line I should not have to root it, mod it or reflash it to make the damn thing work reasonably.

Pwnie Express Releases Android-Based Network Hacking Kit

sensationull Yay, a decent OS to run on my Nexus 7 (35 comments)

It will almost certainly be much more stable than what Google have managed so far with the Nexus 7, horrible unstable bit of junk that can't even manage Bluetooth.

Homeland Security Stole Michael Arrington's Boat

sensationull How is anyone still suprised... (812 comments)

the US is a totalitarian state now run by the corporations and paranoia merchants who exist to fuel wars. I would not travel there with any electronic device as I would be more concerned about them messing about it or taking it at the border than if I was going to China. Seriously it has to have killed of a bit of tourism if nothing else with the mental border policies. Sure Israel blows up laptops it does not like but at least they have provable reason. I've picked flights to avoid the US as a stop over simply because I don't feel safe traveling there with electronics, not that I have anything to hide but I don't think that matters anymore.

Call me old fashioned but I just don't want to be irradiated and have all my electronic devices seized and violated at the whim of some random overpaid security guard with a bad attitude.

Bill Gates Says Windows Phone Strategy Was Inadequate

sensationull Re:Too bad really... (268 comments)

I like my Windows Phone 7.8 also, tried others and like it best. I know a couple of others that have chosen it over the alternatives as well. It actually does the job with a minimum of fuss. Could still do with more work but for what I do it is great.

Bill Gates Says Windows Phone Strategy Was Inadequate

sensationull Re:big (268 comments)

Agreed, I held out a long time before giving up my WM6 phone. Got a 7.8 which is much smoother, doesn't upload my contacts at every opportunity (Android and Apple) but is still not a patch on the WM6. Have tried Android (crash fest, personal experience), and used Apple once or twice but they are a horrible knowledge destroying company.

IE Standardization Fading Fast

sensationull Re:What about the real standards? (176 comments)

"Not to mention that many websites have began using vendor-specific features (i.e. -webkit-*). I'm not sure if it is a good sign and a good time to celebrate (?) just because people are moving away from IE "standards" (to WebKit "standards")."

+1 they are just exchanging one master for another and its the users that get shafted because of the developers arrogance or stupidity.

Flash Player for Windows Mobile

sensationull sensationull writes  |  more than 6 years ago

sensationull (889870) writes "I was looking at the new Microsoft labs project Deepfish and noticed that lots of people were complaining about the lack of flash support for Windows Mobile and how they had better get to it. So this is just a reminder to everyone that there is already support provided directly by Adobe for Flash on Windows Mobile here for Windows Mobile 2003 at least."
