Are Bankers Paid Too Much? Are Technology CEOs?

simplu Re:You get, what you negotiate (712 comments)

"Maybe the bigger question is why is CEO pay so entirely disconnected from company performance?"

The even bigger question is, why is this any of our business? As long as it is not the taxpayers footing the bill, count your own money...

It is our business only when the government "save" the bank with our money.

Ask Slashdot: How Would You Fix the Linux Desktop?

simplu Re:It's not broken. (1154 comments)

No, you are THE problem. Why spread Linux base? I like it and I use it. There are a lot of things (music, books etc) which I like and most people don't. Would I change them for people to like them? No! If you change Linux to be loved by everybody I probably won't like it anymore.

Avoiding a Digital Dark Age

simplu Re:The fight is lost (287 comments)

All of it is stored in multiple locations, with encryption(and decryption software) used as needed.

I moved all my data because i was tired of being tied to any one platform. I can access everything i have electronically on all three platforms now.

Do you think that you encryption/decryption software will run on any operating system 10 years from now? What about 20 years?

iPad Is a "Huge Step Backward"

simplu Re:Should we give (l)users control? (1634 comments)

First, the FSF needs to convince us average users need to have control. Why should average users have control over their computer? Isn't this what got us the virus nightmare in Windows?

You should go live in North Korea for a while. And than see if you need somebody to convince you that you need to have control. Maybe I exaggerated but in the end its the same thing, you should be able to choose.

3 Strikes — Denying Physics Won't Save the Video Stars

simplu We vote the (284 comments)

I'm from Romania and we have a very difficult economic situation right now, worse than others, because of a crappy political crisis. All I can think now is how could we vote these stupid fucks. All other countries from EU criticise us because of this. But I think in the end we are the same: Who the hell voted for Mandelson?

11.6" Netbooks Face Off

simplu Re:Notebook, laptop, netbook ... (238 comments)

Smart fortwo and Mercedes E Class are both cars. All these devices: laptop, notebook, netbook, are similar, size is the only thing that differentiate them. A PDA could be a motorcycle but not a netbook.

I don't think we need new names for the same device in different sizes. Marketing people probably need them.

Offline Gmail Launched

simplu Re:Why not just use a client? (220 comments)

It is not the same thing. If you download messages with POP3 you can access them only from your PC. Even with IMAP you don't have contacts from Gmail interface. Using this feature you have all the things in one place, you can access them from any computer and on your PC you can have them even offline.
