World's First Tizen Tablet

twomi Re:For those of you like me who don't have a clue. (74 comments)

When was Android last mentioned by Samsung? Their brand lies now with Galaxy, not Android. Samsung Galaxy is basically an industry synonym for Android (high-end) phone today. They likely intend to use this brand value to eventually ship Tizen phones as Galaxy phones, and if skinned with same UI and some Android compatibility layer for apps, nobody is missing Android.

Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0 Released

twomi Re:MSE fails genuine check, no install, on validat (175 comments)

3rd hit on Google. You must be a project manager.

You missed the point by a mile, so that probably makes you upper management... 1) This "fix" you reference doesn't work for me. Yes, I can google for stuff. 2) Users shouldn't have to jump thru hoops like this, _ever_. If you think making legit users do things like this is acceptable... well, I'm sorry for you. 3) M$ seems to have at least three different ways to check for activation status (the one at System Properties, one at Web and one at MSE)... WTF?

Maryland Town Tests New Cryptographic Voting System

twomi Combining new tech and old tech (227 comments)

How about combining new tech and old tech for a new solution: instead of using pen and paper you use voting machine, which prints your vote on a paper (ballot card), and also stores the vote in some database. You then drop the ballot card for voting box (same as you do now). Electronic votes are used for result approximation and for press and news etc (you can use simpler scheme than in TFA), and the paper votes are still the official result and are counted and verified by hand. Obviously this does not cut down costs, but gives you the security of a current pen and paper system, yet delivering speedy results and other benefits electronic systems have.

MS Says Windows 7 Will Run DirectX 10 On the CPU

twomi Re:Imagine a DX 10 game on an 800mhz CPU -SSE/MMX (503 comments)

To think that anybody would want to run a DX10 game on an 800mhz no SSE CPU is insane, even considering the company involved.

I want to see someone run DX10 capable Windows on a 800Mhz CPU first, then we can talk about running games on top of that!
