Inside Look At Eastern European Vs. East Asian Hackers

thripper Re:Analogy overload (63 comments)

The comparison is found in TFA where it's quoted from the original paper. So it's not the submitter who adds this (should have been obvious because quotes are used). Also, all the alternatives you provided are correct but when presenting to the public, if an analogy is to be used, you chose to make comparison with something that people know and recognize off the bat. Out of the available options, I think Apple is the best choice.

Justice Dept. Files Antitrust Complaint Against AT&T and T-Mobile Merger

thripper Re:Sprint and T-Mo should merge (301 comments)

Sprint and T-Mobile? They don't even use the same technologies! That makes about as much sense as an AMD / ATi merger! Oh, wait...

On the bright side, at least the new Intel server motherboards stopped coming with those horribly crappy on-board ATi ES1000 video chips, replaced with some Matrox 200 descendant that's refreshingly less crappy. On the bright side for the telecom industry... hmm, I don't see any bright side for any of the telecom mergers.

Matrox is as crap as the old ones. The driver from either or intel or matrox is having a lot of hardtime determining that there *is* a Matrox chip on the frikin MB.

Hands On With the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook

thripper 100MB/month (154 comments)

Really what is wrong with bandwidth in the states? I mean, I live in Romania and for 4 euros/month I get 8GB/moth worth of traffic at 7.2 Mbps. Beyond that limit i get 128kbps. (Disclaimer: It's a corporate sim card but it doesn't get much worse for consumers.)
