A New Form of Online Tracking: Canvas Fingerprinting

slazzy Re:Is that what it is come down to? (194 comments)

No, it shouldn't be hard to create some sort of randomizer for browser image generation. It will probably be a browser standard in 5 years, and a plugin within a few months.

Personally I buy from where I choose, but the first thing I do is strip DRM from any purchase I make (music or ebooks) and add the files to my backup systems. I consider it an investment for my future. . .

slazzy Re:Google Fiber (130 comments)

I used to work at a hosting company and maintain servers for a large adult company, including building reports about their customers... If you think they watch a lot of porn in Utah, you should see how many customers come from the Vatican...

Netflix Wants To Go HTML5, But Not Without DRM

slazzy Re:not much better (394 comments)

I think the goal of DRM really is just to make copying harder. After all if you can see and hear the video, there will always be a way to capture it.

The 'Linux Inside' Stigma

slazzy Branding (366 comments)

Google wants to build their own brand, not someone else's brand. Especially not one that any of their competition could start using as well, and undercut their pricing.

Thinking of making a youtube video of smashing my GoPro3. I don't like companies who abuse DMCA law... I guess I have received way too many fake ones over the years.

Massive Email Crash Hits Canadian ISP Shaw

slazzy Re:I thought MY US ISP sucked donkey schlongs... (150 comments)

I would say Distributel is less abusive, similar prices, runs over Shaw lines but internet is unlimited - no overage fees. Teksavvy used to be good too, not sure if they still are.

Ask Slashdot: How To Make a DVD-Rental Store More Relevant?

slazzy Good retail location? (547 comments)

If it is a good retail location, look at storing the DVDs in a more efficient manner to make room for other products to sell. I would look at what is missing in the area of the store and see if you could offer that as well. Maybe serve good espresso, and make room for a few tables if it is allowed by zoning laws.
