Why We Agonize Over Buying $1 Apps

varmittang Re:SHOULD "Apps" Cost Something? (523 comments)

Ok, subsitute the coffee with soda/tea/water/food, what ever you drink or eat. You in someway pay for any or all of those other types of beverages. So unless you don't spend any money and get all your food for free, you are one of those people.

X-Men Origins Pirate Draws a 1-Year Sentence

varmittang Re:how much will this cost US (341 comments)

Yeah, because we are sure he will be able to get a job that pays enough to pay the couple of million it cost to prosecute him and repay the plaintiff for the damages. This is better for him to serve some time than being in monstrous debt for the rest of his life. He will probably be out in a couple of months anyways.

Why Android Upgrades Take So Long

varmittang Re:I see... (226 comments)

He said poor hardware can't be fixed with software, unless over clocking was being done software which is causing the hardware to break. That could be fixed by software to not overclock.

Android Market Hits 10 Billion Downloads, Games Dominate

varmittang Re:Paid Vs. Free? (178 comments)

Huh? The price for a app doesn't vary from market to market for a single app. Its not like Google or Amazon sets the price the dev does. Its more like people on Android phones don't want to buy, they want free. They are buying a cheaper phone compared to others, they are not looking to pay much for apps either. Piracy is easier on the Android since you can load your own apps not in the market.

Drone Kills Top Al Qaeda Figure

varmittang Re:5th Amendment (885 comments)

If the person is on US soil, then its a federal or local law enforcement issue. The military is barred by federal law from being used on U.S. soil for domestic law enforcement. If it was Canada or Mexico, they would have extradited him to the US and there would have been a trial. You are getting all paranoid trying to rap your head around this issue. He might have been a US citizen, but he join a foreign military/terrorist organization and lead/planned attacks on US citizens and other countries. He did not refute this, so in my mind he is fair game if he gets hit in an air strike again a terrorist safe house. Don't forget that they got a couple other terrorist at the same time.

Publicly Shaming Laptop Thieves Catches Bystanders in the Crossfire

varmittang Re:How is $60 unreasonable? (372 comments)

From the article it seems that here was a built in web cam. So is most likely a one or two year old laptop, so $60 was probably due to the fact he didn't have the username and password for it so it was unusable. Which should scream, STOLEN!!!!

Publicly Shaming Laptop Thieves Catches Bystanders in the Crossfire

varmittang Re:Seriously? $60? (372 comments)

Yeah, probably had a username and password the kid didn't have so the laptop was a brick without a reinstall disk he didn't have. So he sold it to the teacher who reformatted it by buying a disk most likely. That isn't unusable, it just not suppose to be used by anyone that is unauthorized, which was the both of them.

Slate: Amazon's Tax Stance Unfair and Unethical

varmittang Re:Just that pesky Constitution (949 comments)

But they aren't taxing interstate commerce, just commerce done in their states by companies in their states. This puts the internet companies on the same playing field as the mom and pop shops that don't go over state lines. Otherwise, there will never be any mom and pop shops anymore, just order everything you need online.

Motorola CEO Blames Open Android Store For Phone Performance Ills

varmittang Re:From my understanding of Android (384 comments)

6 in one hand, half a dozen in the other, you are saying the same thing he is saying. That the Apps from the app store are poorly written, take up to many resources, and cause the device to have poor performance. People that get poor performance from a device and the apps they install return the device because they believe it has to be the devices fault, because the programs where made for the phone since they were in the app store for that device. Remember, the normal user are not rational and don't associate the poor performance with the apps, but with the device. These are the same people that have 50 things starting up when they turn on their PC, and then complain about how slow their computer is and they need a new one. Even though their PC is only a year old.
