Arnold Schwarzenegger Will Be Back As the Terminator

vgerclover Re:Much awaited.. (245 comments)

b) They didnt wimp out with the ending...the nukes actually flew.

The only problem with that is that it flies in the face of the second movie, where Judgement Day was a possible future, not the future, set in stone. There is even an alternate ending with Sarah Connor in the future seeing kids (her grandchildren?) playing in the park that got destroyed in her dream, indicating that they had stopped JD.

In the third movie, the future is immutable, you can't change it, one way or the other, which in my opinion is weaker from a story telling point of view.

That's not to say it's not an enjoyable silly movie, but it's far from the heavy hitter and absolute classic the second is (which in my opinion, is a greater movie than the first one as well).

Google Unable To Keep Paying App Developers In Argentina

vgerclover Re:Another currency? (169 comments)

Because that is considered illegal in the country, and would make Google, which has an office in country, liable.

I think that the grandparent is wrong because of his beliefs, but wrongly held belief by the grandparent poster is that he understand statistics enough to criticise this study.

vgerclover PC Cost vs electricity dependent on country (172 comments)

Because the power to run a Pentium 4 for 2 years would cost more than getting a modern little embedded box.

It is in some countries with heavily subsidized electricity and high import tarifs.

You do realize that the rent-a-cop that feels you up is getting the cancer, while the white glove robber baron that made all the money off scaring and endangering the american air travelers is still fucking comfortable diving into his money a la Scrooge McDuck?

Google Threatens French Media Ban

vgerclover Re:But where to get it (419 comments)

In that case they can just add a simple robots,txt to tell the "parasite" to go away. And then start waving their fucking magic wand around to make people discover the site directly.

Because they don't want their sites excluded, they want to force some other company (google) to pay them money for the content since actual readers refuse to do it.

But Google can refuse to show their content if the options are either pay for crawling it and not to crawl it.

Of course, I wouldn't put it past legislators to force Google to crawl and pay.

This is further proof that Google already has a working time machine, in order to steal the revolutionary 16:9 aspect ratio, the 4 inch display design. The original evidence was the roll-down notification bar of course.

When you reopen Chrome after it has crashed, try using Ctrl+Shift+T. Most of the time, it will open the last opened window. If you keep doing it, it will keep bringing previously opened Windows/Tabs.
