slazzy Typical Rosetta (62 comments)

Typical... yet more showing off from self-absorbed Rosetta and her selfies. I bet she posts them right to her Facebook account too.

Blocking and charging $1,000 to get online? Glad they got caught!

Online Creeps Inspire a Dating App That Hides Women's Pictures

slazzy Re:Where's the benefit? (482 comments)

Why would a man join this site compared with dating sites that let him see photos and don't make him jump through silly hoops?

Yup, they may as well call it tumbleweeds dating service...it will be a ghost town before it even starts.

State of Iowa Tells Tesla To Cancel Its Scheduled Test Drives

slazzy Re:Rent a Tesla for $1 (335 comments)

Or they could just start their own "independent" dealers, where they happen to own 99.999% of the shares... I'm sure there are a lot of tricks but they seem to want to bring attention to the issue.

Apple Yanks iOS 8 Update

slazzy Re:Just don't update it that way. (203 comments)

It's amazing how electronic devices break when the case they are in bends enough.
It's also amazing how metal effectively doesn't bend when you use enough of it. (like my iPhone 5...)

Ask Slashdot: Finding a Job After Completing Computer Science Ph.D?

slazzy Prove your worth (479 comments)

I had trouble finding a job in programming lately, while I live in a smaller city I was willing to move or do remote work. I started doing freelance work, and in no time I had job offers from many of the people I've done projects for. If you can prove you can do the work, and do it well, you'll have jobs lined up.

Bioethicist At National Institutes of Health: "Why I Hope To Die At 75"

slazzy Re:The WHO (478 comments)

Not only that, but by not working hard to stay healthy now, there's a greater chance he'll be "ineffectual" much sooner, perhaps even well before 75.

Friendly Reminder: Do Not Place Your iPhone In a Microwave

slazzy Re:Jokes aside (240 comments)

Can't most syncing can be done through bluetooth or wifi? True be told, I still prefer to plug in rather than try to do it wirelessly. I guess it would be possible to have some kind of rubber plug which could be pulled in case you need to plug in - also you'll always need the ability to change batteries every few years.

Friendly Reminder: Do Not Place Your iPhone In a Microwave

slazzy Jokes aside (240 comments)

I can't wait until wireless charging is standard. Combined with bluetooth headphones, we can finally start making phones really water resistant or even waterproof. Be nice not to fumble with little charging connectors late at night or drunk when your phone needs a charge too.

slazzy Re:Surely (138 comments)

True, it shouldn't be hard. Just say they need to be flying a real helicopter for filming and need to keep all drone traffic away for safety reasons.

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.

Poll Shows That 75% Prefer Printed Books To eBooks

slazzy Re:I agree (312 comments)

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. . .
