WaveNET – the Floating, Flexible Wave Energy Generator

slashmydots bad idea (89 comments)

The alternative to this is one that resides on the ground and it generates the same power no matter what the height of the waves are. That's a lot more logical.

Auto Industry Teams Up With Military To Stop Car Hacking

slashmydots morons (113 comments)

If they're going to team up with people who pretend to know about cyber security, they might as well team up with Valve and put Valve Anti Cheat on the cars. That system works peeeeerfectly.

Sony To Offer Partial Refunds For PS Vita

slashmydots anyone know more? (60 comments)

What about those two claims was specifically not followed through on from a technical perspective? I saw the commercials that claimed it did both of those and they were pretty black and white. All the article says was that less than all games supported pausing and resuming on the Vita. There has to be more to it.

Kim Dotcom Regrets Not Taking Copyright Law and MPAA "More Seriously"

slashmydots ah huh (143 comments)

Oh really? They took all his stuff and ruined his company and now he wished he wouldn't have been such an arrogant fat bastard. If only he also took seriously how the entire world hates him.

Top Counter-Strike Players Embroiled In Hacking Scandal

slashmydots CS players cheat? (219 comments)

Take the number of cheaters in all major cycling tournaments, multiply it by the number of cheaters at every major magic the gathering tournament, and multiply it by 10,000 and you've got the number of people who cheat at Counterstrike.

By the way, there is so much wrong with this article I don't know where to start. Reporting people is a fucking joke. It does NOTHING. Going over logs to see who cheated just tells you who cheated. Nothing happens. There is nothing the user can do about it. Until companies get serious about cheating, nobody will play their completely ruined games.

In MW3 for the PC, it became unplayable after about 3 months. You literally cannot play one single online round without someone floating through the air and firing at you with zero recoil. That's a $100 million+ game. They just don't give a flying fuck about cheating.

Here's THE answer. Google [name of game] hacks. Download the hacking utilities that everyone else is using. Look at what directory it installs to or what DLLs go where. Have the game check for those files in the next patch. Permanently ban everyone with the hack installed and ban them from Steam so basically those cheating pieces of shit aren't allowed to play video games anymore.

Two Google Engineers Say Renewables Can't Cure Climate Change

slashmydots Just plain stupid (630 comments)

You put up a device, it spits out power for free, and it doesn't run on fuel. Problem solved. What the hell about that do they think is not going to work?

Google Chrome Will Block All NPAPI Plugins By Default In January

slashmydots while they're at it (107 comments)

Maybe they should block all malware plugins too. Honestly after running a small repair shop, I could name them off right off the top of my head. Block those assholes and turn it into a marketing thing to brag about security (security for stupid, careless people at least).

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

slashmydots Re:The "Protesters" (1088 comments)

You're an idiot. They're interested in revenge? Some pot-smoking 18 year old thug piece of ghetto trash robbed a store then assaulted an officer and tried to steal his gun. The officer shot him. OMG RAAACCIIISSSMM! More like they want early Christmas shopping aka looting. It's 100% about looting. I'm sure that's going to help race relations in Ferguson.

DHS Set To Destroy "Einstein" Surveillance Records

slashmydots orly? (71 comments)

They're seeking public comments on a system that collected bulk data from the public that turned out to be useless? I think I might just submit "fuck you" as a comment.

NASA Offering Contracts To Encourage Asteroid Mining

slashmydots A better idea (153 comments)

Instead of trying to mine it in space, why not strap a parachute to it and redirect it straight at Earth? Before it starts immense friction against the air, there will be enough air to fill the chute. Then you can mine it on the ground.

Corning Reveals Gorilla Glass 4, Promises No More Broken IPhones

slashmydots horrible brand (202 comments)

It's so far past "about time" they need to change their product name. Everyone knows gorilla glass means cheap crap that shatters on impact.

Critical XSS Flaws Patched In WordPress and Popular Plug-In

slashmydots wait a minute... (41 comments)

Do you mean to tell me that running overcomplicated garbage code on 10 million websites that uses 15 divs and 3 databases to draw the word "the" on the page might be vulnerable to cross site scripting? I never would have guessed! (I'm a by-hand HTML designer by the way).

Harvard Scientists Say It's Time To Start Thinking About Engineering the Climate

slashmydots reminds me of (367 comments)

I was just arguing with ultra conservative dumbfucks on Facebook who think climate change is a media conspiracy. Now that they're shrunk to like 3% of the population (and their own stupidity is hopefully killing them off) I think we have a level of support that could actually get this done. I think we have numbers from 10,000 years ago from trees. We have numbers from Mt St Helens. We have numbers from more recent volcanoes. We have simulations over years from nuclear weapons. We also have giant food reserves in bunkers. I say go for it.

Windows Kernel Version Bumped To 10.0

slashmydots really? (171 comments)

It's Windows 8.1 with a start menu. They didn't rewrite the kernel from scratch so that puts it into 6.4 - 6.99999 range. It's an arbitrary, meaningless number and it's in an OS that they named 10 for no logical reason. They're trying to assign meaning to that?

"Barbie: I Can Be a Computer Engineer" Pulled From Amazon

slashmydots holy crap (555 comments)

Despite that book being completely true to life, I'm not one to jump all over something and call it sexist but that sounds incredibly sexist. Most feminist feminazis make exaggerating their full time job but that book sounds almost purposely sexist.
