In my state all the calls are recorded anonymously for my safety as well as the safety of my country. Freedom isn't free after all.

iFixit Takes Apart the Oculus Rift DK2, Finds Galaxy Note 3 Display Inside

Timothy Hartman Re:Gonna get sued! (57 comments)

Samsung would sue if someone sold their displays with their logos on them without their consent. In this case Samsung is providing the displays for the device as part of a partnership as referenced in the fine article and even links to said partnership.

A common part is a huge deal when the common part is the logo for the company. That's typically a counterfeit product.

I doubt they would partner with them and then sue them over it.

Correction, they lost him. Maybe he was what was holding them back from the other 160,000 members.

Well they did add Gary Haber after he was dead. Zombies can be pretty convincing.

Timothy Hartman Re:Time Shifting? (317 comments)

They went to the trouble of selecting The Coraline Theme. That shows they have some dedication. The nefarious threat of having the power of a $40 mp3 player built in to vehicles should be reckoned with and you have to applaud them for choosing Wordpress for their method to do so.

Oracle Offers Custom Intel Chips and Unanticipated Costs

Timothy Hartman Re:this post brought to you (97 comments)

Reading the article it seemed pretty pro Oracle in that they have a unique offering their competitors cannot get that is tailored to their database software. The idea that the processors can activate cores on their own doesn't seem to be an issue as the up charge is per processor. Maybe I'm ignorant and having multicore systems be treated as a multiprocessor system, but the person licensing should be fully aware when buying grossly overpriced hardware to run their grossly overpriced software what they are getting in to and will happily pay for the performance.

Why My LG Optimus Cellphone Is Worse Than It's Supposed To Be

Timothy Hartman Re:Its not just low end phones (291 comments)

I shop specifically for a phone that doesn't have terrible software, or can take Cyanogenmod. The S3 had laughably bad software, which I replaced immediately after getting my free Dropbox space. I got a Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 and without Cyanogenmod it just sits.

Bennet should have enough sense to buy a decent phone even if getting a cheap one. Most complaints in the article could be solved by replacing the keyboard and messaging apps. Screen capture is pretty easy via app also. What's more, after penning the first article about getting a terrible phone, wouldn't a rational human being not get another terrible phone or at least return it within the two weeks when it is painfully apparent they made a mistake?

The ball gags would be nice for some adults too. They could sell quite a few of these fetishmobiles.
