stevez67 Re: If you sit on a phone with your big fat arse (421 comments)

Yes, because people's fat beer belly's and thighs are not on the other side of the cloth, so it must be the cloth that's bending it.

stevez67 Just the basics (545 comments)

Speed and stability. All the drama about new features, missing features, start menus and other preferences are all just nonsense. Just make it fast and stable.

Apple Edits iPhone 6's Protruding Camera Out of Official Photos

stevez67 A protruding camera? Srsly? (425 comments)

If the biggest concern is a picture in marketing materials has been altered, people are grasping at straws for drama. After all no one in marketing alters pictures of actors, actresses, models, cars, motorcycles, musical instruments, etc etc etc (your sarcasm alarms should be going off now).

Artificial Spleen Removes Ebola, HIV Viruses and Toxins From Blood Using Magnets

stevez67 Nonesense (106 comments)

The data in the paper is related to bacteria, not viruses. Antibiotics work against bacteria, not viruses. someone needs to try to repeat the experiment and confirm the results. The paper reads more like a patent application than a scientific publication.

AT&T Says 10Mbps Is Too Fast For "Broadband," 4Mbps Is Enough

stevez67 Re:I Agree (533 comments)

Per person or device. Now, take a standard household of 4-5 persons (family members plus visitors), each with a device, and you need 20Mbps down and 5Mbps up at each household.

Should police have cameras recording their work at all times?

stevez67 Let's be fair (455 comments)

Everyone who thinks police should be subjected to wearing a camera every second they're on duty should also have to wear a camera while at work. If the excuse of "justice" applies to the police, it should apply to everyone.

Create a calendar showing scantily clad beautiful women reclined on cars and motorcycles writing code, and it will appear to be cool. To 12 year old boys.

The Great Taxi Upheaval

stevez67 A rose by any other name (218 comments)

Using an app to find and get into a car with someone you don't know is little more than hitch hiking. And we all know how safe THAT is. Dressing it up in false libertarianism and anti-government paranoia doesn't make it any better or safer. And the 2008 financial crisis should have taught us something about relying on the free market to keep things under control.

stevez67 Re:I skipped Windows 7... (681 comments)

If a Mac Pro is only "a little more money" either you're paying too much for your PCs or you have a skewed idea of what "a little more" is.
