Latest Windows 10 Preview Build Brings Slew of Enhancements

slashmydots still awful (198 comments)

It's still a EUFI-using, Bing-infested, hybrid online/offline account nightmare from the depths of hell though. I don't give a flying fuck about some UI enhancements until that BS is dealt with.

Anonymous Asks Activists To Fight Pedophiles In 'Operation Deatheaters'

slashmydots idiotic (408 comments)

So there's a conspiracy of high ranking officials worldwide who all are in the same child abuse ring? I wonder if they've been presented with the counter-evidence of ummmmmmmm no there's not. They're going after something that doesn't exist. Yeah, I'm sure NBC didn't cover a story well enough because there's a giant pro-child abuse lobby working for them. Are they even serious? No wonder these people don't have full time IT jobs to occupy their times.

Ed Felten: California Must Lead On Cybersecurity

slashmydots california is a joke (80 comments)

NOTHING is going to happen in California. Their budget is a joke. They have a double digit sales tax rate and the biggest deficit out of every state. They have the stupidest, most intrusive laws that negatively impact every other state. Their politics are almost as corrupt as Illinois. They don't do a thing about illegal immigrants and they're tipping the economy over and causing a massive crime problems. They also have a drug problem. California is the model of how you don't run a state.

And they're supposed to get tough on cyber security?

NASA Considers Autonomous Martian Helicopter To Augment Future Rovers

slashmydots morons (83 comments)

There's basically no air! That's how helicopters work. This must have come from the same people that tried to land that one lander with parachutes. How stupid are these people?!

Twitter Moves To Curb Instagram Links

slashmydots the problem with Twitter (114 comments)

140 characters ISN'T ENOUGH! That's not enough to say anything of substance. 300 characters is sufficient and almost as quick to read. If there was a service that came out with 300 characters as a limit, it would crush Twitter. They should get it through their thick heads that superior services will demolish their business if they don't listen to the number one complaint about Twitter from their users!

Smartphones, Tablets and EBay Send SkyMall To Chapter 11

slashmydots Oh yeah (65 comments)

When I want to shop for overpriced stuff I didn't know I needed, what search term would I possibly use on ebay? That's where the logic falls apart. Skymall is failing because their products are stupid and rich people, their customers, don't take their brand name seriously.

Winklevoss Twins Plan Regulated Bitcoin Exchange

slashmydots I sense a shitstorm approaching (79 comments)

Oh yes, let's take a complete circus run by lunatics (the bitcoin network) and attach it to a regulated exchange. How are they going to prove the bitcoins added to the exchange were obtained legally? Anyone thinking of FDIC "loss" fraud will be occurring daily? Then how do you prove your customers are actually in the US? Then how do you report on profit from investment without proving or disproving that offsetting losses were incurred at a different exchange? This is such an unbelievably stupid and impossible idea, I can't even believe they're thinking of it.

In Addition To Project Spartan, Windows 10 Will Include Internet Explorer

slashmydots I get it (99 comments)

I get it already! MS products are now Halo and Windows is now Xbox Live. Everyone responsible for Windows 8 got fired and I think it's damn obvious the Xbox people replaced them. This is completely stupid.

Dish Network Violated Do-Not-Call 57 Million Times

slashmydots Re:In related news (246 comments)

Which do you think is more likely? Worldwide currency collapse due to gloabal warming-induced food shortages in which case we owe China zero

Or

We actually pay back 20 trillion.

So who's the genius now? The one who borrowed money and spent it with no intention to pay it back! Stupid Chinese fell for it.

The Paradoxes That Threaten To Tear Modern Cosmology Apart

slashmydots Re:I don't get it (231 comments)

Resist means it had opposite direction energy and since it doesn't then...space has no energy. I still don't get it.

The Paradoxes That Threaten To Tear Modern Cosmology Apart

slashmydots I don't get it (231 comments)

If there are no particles moving at all, how does empty space have energy? It's the textbook definition of lack of energy. Empty space cannot impart energy on matter and it can't spontaneously create matter. There's some theory about virtual particles but their net energy is zero when they combine so that's not it. Can anyone explain why empty space has energy?

Microsoft Reveals Windows 10 Will Be a Free Upgrade

slashmydots Time to riot (570 comments)

"Microsoft specified it would only be free for the first year, indicating Windows would be software that users subscribe to, rather than buy outright."
They also announced the Xbox One will spy on you with its mic and camera while it's powered off and disallow used game sales. How'd that go, Microsoft?

Parachutes? Isn't the atmosphere like 98% thinner than Earth? That'd work about as well as parachuting onto the moon.

Virgin Galactic To Launch 2,400 Comm. Satellites To Offer Ubiquitous Broadband

slashmydots stupid! (123 comments)

Here's why this is stupid. It takes an immense amount of battery power to beam a signal back to a satellite. So if you're out in Argentina in the forest, you better have brought a car battery along to power that laptop's satellite transmitter.
