The American App Economy Is Now "Bigger Than Hollywood"

Timothy Hartman Re:"loses ON piracy" - LOL. American idiot. (135 comments)

We helped the French during World War 2 so they wouldn't have to speak German. The French helped us during the American Revolution so we wouldn't have to speak English.

The American App Economy Is Now "Bigger Than Hollywood"

Timothy Hartman Re:And if you count the 30% Apple kept (135 comments)

Though the 30% is a pretty big chunk, it's nothing compared to the $11 trillion Hollywood loses on piracy every year. They've done studies and it's pretty clear that piracy costs them all the money ever times infinity.

Could Tizen Be the Next Android?

Timothy Hartman Re:no... (241 comments)

Yep! And if you title your comment Betteridge's Law of Headlines you can get marked +5 insightful while contributing the same amount (nothing) to the conversation. Karma whoring is a beautiful thing.

Dice already had their advertisement for uncommon programming languages that were neither uncommon, nor were they programming languages.

FCC Favors Net Neutrality

Timothy Hartman Re:Yeah right... (255 comments)

Totally agree. They already have DOCSIS 3.1 Gigabit in the works and for the two percent of the population eligible for it I'm sure the higher price, poor customer service, and data caps will be more than enough reason for customers to stick with Comcast, an innovator in the cable industry since 1963.

The Inevitable Death of the Internet Troll

Timothy Hartman Re:No chance (571 comments)

Seems like you are likening legitimate issues to trolling. Busting down barriers for women's rights and segregation are valid. Comparing trolling grammar to suffrage is a bit of a leap.

Google Announces Motorola-Made Nexus 6 and HTC-Made Nexus 9

Timothy Hartman Re:No SD card, non-removable battery (201 comments)

Get a Blu Dash 5.5 or something like that then. There are a ton of choices. Blue, ZTE, Huwei, and others all make things with plenty of choices. I'm not going to suggest someone buy some farkle brand in order to simply disprove that there aren't modern phones with replaceable batteries.

I don't consider Apple, Samsung, HTC, or LG to be any less evil than the next one. Couple in whatever your carrier is, there is little to no chance there isn't a scumbag or two in the experience.

NVIDIA Launches Mobile Maxwell GeForce GTX 980M and GTX 970M Notebook Graphics

Timothy Hartman Graphics Card News (29 comments)

Graphics card news has been virtually the same since 1999 with the exception of not seeing games that meet future gen card specs on launch. The incentive to run your current gen games at faster than eyeballs speed on a laptop has to have lost its charm when people who purchase high end laptops would prefer portability of ultra books and anyone who demands the performance and travels can ship their desktops to the competitions they are in to need them.

The launches of the laptops that actually support these just felt flat to me from what I saw. Honestly who wants that big a hunk of appliance on their lap at this age? The audience for laptops as big as early 2000 era laptops has to be getting slim. With laptop sales being so flat and performance gamers being what they are it doesn't make any sense for the people who have bought $600 cards every six months to want to be behind again on a $3000 lappy.

Maybe I'm just getting crotchety and I have a 670M.

If they aren't encrypting they probably aren't set up on whatever is reading these for SQL injection or all sorts of other fun. Could be hilarious actually.

Aral Sea Basin Almost Completely Dry

Timothy Hartman Re:Stop blaming the Soviets (151 comments)

Perhaps to you, but to Russia at the time they valued the industry over nature. I'm sure now that the area affected is no longer part of Russia they have no intention to get rid of farmland to improve nature in countries they no longer control.
