Software Patents Are Crumbling, Thanks To the Supreme Court

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Other side of the story. (118 comments)

Your title implies that there are two sides to every story. There are not. There are seven sides to most stories, with some stories acquiring four additional sides when no one is thinking about them. The remaining stories that don't fit this model almost without exception have 3.6 sides.

Software Patents Are Crumbling, Thanks To the Supreme Court

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Software Business Methods are in danger (118 comments)

If you accept quantum theory (and just try to disprove it) then the perceptible universe is cannonically isomorphic to a subset of mathematics. If cannonically isomorphic isn't close enough to identity for you, I'd like an explanation of why not. (Well, except that several different things can have aspects that are cannonically isomorphic to the same thing...but perhaps that's just a way of saying that they have certain features that are essentially identical.)

Spelling counts, mister Cannon.

Apple Announces Smartwatch, Bigger iPhones, Mobile Payments

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:So what exactly is the market here. (730 comments)

Wow, you kids keep making the availability error. If you're listening to a Creative MP3 player and I'm playing a portable Genesis, who needs to get off whose lawn? 1998 indeed. Don't make me pull rank.

What is it to be "lawned," my memey friend? If it's got something to do with "git off my lawn," you'd better make sure the Creative Nomad is older than the Sega one first.

Apple Announces Smartwatch, Bigger iPhones, Mobile Payments

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Legacy Support (730 comments)

'Legacy apps "just work".'

Apple needs to apply this to the MacOS as well. We should be able to run all legacy applications back to MacOS 1.0 and frankly iOS and MacOS should be merged such that we can run applications on either. A lot of people aren't upgrading Mac hardware because we need access to older data which is used by older applications that Apple no longer supports.

We need Legacy that Just Works.

Wow. END USER ALERT. END USER ALERT. This is Slashdot. NOTHING JUST WORKS.

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:So what exactly is the market here. (730 comments)

People keep mentioning the Nomad. We're talking about the portable Sega Genesis with the built-in screen, right? Because I refuse to believe you're talking about something else. Personally, I like my Nomad, but I've noticed that with EA carts, you have to put a piece of paper or cardboard in behind the cartridge to get the contacts to touch properly. Otherwise, NHL '94 for the win. No way I'm playing NHL '94 on an iWatch.

UCLA, CIsco & More Launch Consortium To Replace TCP/IP

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Mass media takeover and destruction of 'net (254 comments)

I don't think we're going to stop the progression you are describing. The method by which it is achieved may not be the one being discussed by UCLA and Cisco, but it's clear now that what slashdotters call "the Internet" is doomed and has been since all of those rebellions in northern africa/mideast a couple years ago. What most end-users call "the Internet" is just getting started, but certainly the application of it is as a control and monitoring system against dissent rather than a catalyst promoting freedom of information. The point where we have some hope of rallying the population to activism is the point where content providers and governments try to do things like completely disallow offline storage media. But not before then, because the population just plain doesn't understand what they have or what is at stake.

Study: Social Networks Have Negative Effect On Individual Welfare

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Jail time will not help (76 comments)

Coward -- I get the feeling you're going somewhere interesting here, but the metaphor isn't quite working. Would you mind spoon feeding what you're getting at here, without putting on any kind of satire/parody of what I said? Are you saying moderation is equivalent to jail time? Freedom of speech equivalent to freedom to move about public space? Freedom of speech "invented" by someone? Too many things going on at once to make your point clearly, at least to me.

Study: Social Networks Have Negative Effect On Individual Welfare

uCallHimDrJ0NES Moderation will not help (76 comments)

Moderation censors opinions contrary to the majority of the participants in a particular forum. This frustrates those who need to communicate critical points, which will produce an entirely new set of negative feelings and may even break the behavioral hooks that make social networking appealing.

uCallHimDrJ0NES Since no one seems to want to answer... (382 comments)

Jenga
Darts
Wii Sports (Wii)
Mario Tennis (N64)
Mario Kart 64

Ask Slashdot: What To Do About Repeated Internet Overbilling?

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Simple Solution... (355 comments)

Obviously, that's not an option for this person. What prompts you to type this and click preview, and then click submit, without considering this? Do you think you're the one who's stating an obvious point? You're not. You're the one who is proving he doesn't think before he types.

Is Dong Nguyen Trolling Gamers With "Swing Copters"?

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Why are you giving this dipshit free PR? (113 comments)

This is an idiotic who had a mental breakdown (or whatever) and removed FB because it was "too hard and ruined peoples loves", after he staged a meltdown online where he blatantly lied and said that the amount of money he was raking in was too much and posed a threat to himself because of where he lived in the world.

IMHO, this jackass should have been banned from the App Store with all the shenanigans he pulled. Now you jackasses are giving him free PR again, because he wrote another shitty HTML5 game that is once more purportedly "too hard". Nice.

Wow. This guy proves i kan reed's point IMMEDIATELY.

Do Readers Absorb Less On Kindles Than On Paper? Not Necessarily

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Compare it with a nook (105 comments)

Wow. I hadn't noticed that Amazon was marketing the Fire tablets as e-readers, but yeah, that's the wrong hardware for the job. Sounds like a group of marketers at Amazon think that their poop can dance and do tricks.

You're not under the impression the Paperwhite isn't e-ink are you? It is. Paperwhite is e-ink with a sidelight built in.

Involuntary Eye Movement May Provide Definitive Diagnosis of ADHD

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:100 percent bullshit (200 comments)

ADHD meds are no more a slippery slope than Antidepressants before them. And they were no more a slippery slope than the Tobacco/Pot/Alcohol/Coffee before them. Arguments like yours are why Slippery Slope is considered a logical fallacy.

I'm saying that seeking chemical sources to soothe over the overabundance of reward-based interactions we are experiencing will naturally progress towards escalating both the drugs and the reward-based interactions. I apologize if I misused the term "slippery slope". Invoking antidepressants as an example of harmlessness is far more questionable than any incorrect naming of a type of fallacy I may have done.

NTLM 100 Percent Broken Using Hashes Derived from Captures

uCallHimDrJ0NES uCallHimDrJ0NES writes  |  about a year and a half ago

uCallHimDrJ0NES (2546640) writes "Security researcher Mark Gamache has used Moxie Marlinspike's Cloudcracker to derive hashes from captured NTLM handshakes, resulting in successful pass-the-hash attacks. It's been going on for a long time, probably, but this is the first time a "white hat" has researched and exposed the how-to details for us all to enjoy. Microsoft has posted a little guidance for those who need to turn off NTLM: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2793313. Have fun explaining your new security project to your management, server admins!"
