NVIDIA Launches Tegra K1-Based SHIELD Tablet, Wireless Controller
I didn't get the name, SHIV or something?
Bug In Fire TV Screensaver Tears Through 250 GB Data Cap
Distributel offers unlimited internet access for about 45$/month, 25mbps.
Robert McMillen: What Everyone Gets Wrong In the Debate Over Net Neutrality
...but he got it right? Sure, why not.
UN to Debate Use of Fully Autonomous Weapons, New Report Released
I do agree with what you're saying, but at the same time I'm thinking that maybe, just maybe, someone killing an innocent person based on metadata can be held responsible. This also creates much worse system for exploitation.
Google Project Ara Design Will Use Electro-Permanent Magnets To Lock In Modules
I think that Google has a proven track record on delivering systems. Nor they do a lot of marketing. This phone will see the light of day, but how successful it's gonna be that is another story.
BlackBerry Posts $4.4 Billion Loss, Will Outsource To Foxconn
Not sure about that. BlackBerry QNX-based OS is really good. It's not like they don't have a great product, the problem is that the product came late and it was pricey. In any case, it's good to have a variety out there.
Nelson Mandela Dead At 95
We're glad that you're still around to make very intelligent remarks. Without you we wouldn't know what to feel now, so thanks for this.
Bell Canada To Collect User Data For Advertising
I have cable internet with Distributel (over Rogers network) and last year I had an outage that lasted around 2 weeks. It was exactly like that. Rogers didn't give a crap about fixing the problem. They do this on purpose, which actually makes me hate them even more. Same with Bell Canada. I hate these companies. They received government subsidies from our sweet tax dollars to build their infrastructure. Now they are simply robbing Canadians with their high service fees and crappy service. As long as I have the choice I will never give them money.
Apple Announces iPad Air
Speak for yourself. Now that it's twice as fast, I can finish the movie in half the time.
Army Researching Network System That Defends Against Social Engineering
Seriously, this has been one of the main problems with the security in the government. Some high ranking officer visits another country, and before you know it some prostitute has all of the military secrets this guy is aware of.
Samsung Unveils Galaxy Gear Smartwatch
Smart or not 300$ is expensive. Considering that Google is selling Nexus 4 phone for 200$ I'm not gonna buy this thing. Yeah, the battery life is like 10hrs or so. Bluetooth drains the battery fairly quickly so you'll end up charging this thing fairly often. No thanks.
Elon Musk Admits He Is Too Busy To Build Hyperloop
Not really, being a douche is a full time job. Hence why he's so busy.
Why is he a douche? Because he's successful and he actually got there by not screwing over millions of people?
You can say anything about PayPal but it's a service you can choose not to use. I wish he found a time to do this thing. Safe and fast travel, and I think cheaper too. It would be a great competition for aviation industry.
In any case, nothing but respect for this guy.
Google Pressure Cookers and Backpacks: Get a Visit From the Feds
I'm just glad the phrase "begs the question" wasn't used in this regard.

Facebook Launches "Home" For Android
To be honest I like what Google has done in the last 15 years:
1. Google search: there were search engines before Google, but how caching and indexing works, and relevance of the results is pretty amazing to me
2. Maps: there were other map products but Google has done a great job to make maps more responsive and easier to use
3. Email: remember when hotmail was giving you about 10 MB of space, and then Google gave you 1 GB
This is just to mention a few. I am aware that Google might be the next big threat to everyone's privacy but the technology they came up with is just incredible.
Man Who Pointed Laser At Aircraft Gets 30-Month Sentence
The only issue I have is that this kid, probably non-violent dumb-ass, will come out of prison where he will experience many bad things, and probably learn many many bad things. When he comes out he probably won't be as non-violent any more.
2012 Free Software Award Winners Announced
These people are devoting their own time to create something others can benefit from, and they are not asking for anything. This is possibly the only recognition they get. On the other hand, we have people like you, who are so lazy they can't even create an account on the forum they use.
Anyway, thanks for coming out of your mom's basement to enlighten us with your wisdom.
2012 Free Software Award Winners Announced
As someone who writes software for living, I admire these people.
Video Editor OpenShot Wants To Kickstart Windows, OS X Versions
In any case, not sure how good is this software but if some people like it they will donate. We obviously won't.
Who knows, maybe given the resources, this might actually become something decent to use. And it will be free. So nothing wrong with that. I won't be using it for sure, but I'm not opposing its existence.
Canonical and China Announce Ubuntu Collaboration
If we can learn something from the history is that any openness won't work well in China. On the positive side we may see a number of drivers for peripheral devices being developed for Ubuntu. In any case, I wish them good luck.
Possible Chemical Weapons Use In Syria
Because Democracy is better than tyranny. Learn to think long ball instead of small ball.
I agree with that but why don't we hold everyone to the same standard then? Why don't we tell Saudis: hey, either you become a democracy or else?
Then we have a shiny example of how we removed a dictator Sadam, to make Iraq a better place. Is it really a better place? How much money US has spent on that war, and who benefited?
