uranus65 One possible reason (513 comments)

I pay a moderate amount of attention to tech stuff. I subscribe to Wired and I check out Slashdot regularly. I've never heard of an Ultrabook.

SatPhones — Why Can't They Make It Work?

uranus65 Re:Can't make a call from inside (337 comments)

A U.S. soldier recently, not the most recent, was awarded the Medal of Honor because his group was pinned down and he needed to call in help. He had to go out in the open to get a call through and knew he'd get the shit shot out of him. He did it anyway and got killed but I think the rest of his guys received help.

Fermilab Experiment Hints At Multiple Higgs Particles

uranus65 Re:More elementary particles than non-elementary (271 comments)

What is it about a particle that makes it have a particular charge? What is charge fundamentally? Are these known things or just stupid questions on my part? It seems to me if two particles can be different (positive or negative) then they must consist of something smaller that makes them that way.

Apple Kills Google Voice Apps On the iPhone

uranus65 Re:Once again, Apple shows themselves to be Evil (541 comments)

Why on earth geeks continue to view Apple as a Good Company boggles my mind.

Loved Linux for years but also love ipod, itunes, garageband and imovie. Nothing on Linux comes close to these. Microsoft doesn't include a compiler.

AT&T Sidestepping Google, Eyes Symbian

uranus65 Are sex toys recession proof? (139 comments)

I thought Symbian was that sex toy that Howard Stern is always trying to get his "female" guests to try out...and I thought, good move, way to diversify AT&T.
