Box Office 2014: Moviegoing Hits Two-Decade Low

vivek7006 Re:blu rays are cheaper than the movie (400 comments)

Sorry but bluray sucks. Sony sucks. Most people are happy with DVD quality and see no reason to buy bluray disks. Also the fact that 99% of bluray disks have previews that cannot be skipped or fast forwarded through makes them NOT the media of choice! The only way that bluray disks sell at all is that these days you have to buy the bluray disk packaged with the DVD disk to get the DVD disk much of the time.

Sorry but DVD sucks. Most people are happy with VHS quality and see no reason to buy DVD disks.

This is a media player (like Roku), so there is no battery involved here

Google Announces Motorola-Made Nexus 6 and HTC-Made Nexus 9

vivek7006 Re:Also announced Nexus player (201 comments)

I agree, Google isn't going to sell enough. But still its a big deal for Intel, since they have struggled to put their SoC in big name products. They are making progress in tablet space, but this Nexus win adds credibility to Intel's SoC roadmap

vivek7006 Also announced Nexus player (201 comments)

And it is powered by an Intel chip. Interesting that Google decided to go with Intel 64-bit SoC instead of ARM. This is a big win for Intel

The Evolution of Diet

vivek7006 Re:Correlation Does Not Imply Causation (281 comments)

So you're saying, eat less, exercise more, and do it for the rest of your life?

You'll never sell that. People want to know what magic food you can eat that will make the bulge from all the cheetos go away. Telling them to eat fewer cheetos only makes people hate you.

Nailed it!

I still use windows 7 MCE as my DVR. Its the only solution which works with CableCard and allows recording HBO and other premium cable. It will be a shame if MS abandons it completely in windows9

Prototype Volvo Flywheel Tech Uses Car's Wasted Brake Energy

vivek7006 Re:mass in motion (262 comments)

Car makers need to think outside the box. An average American car-driver is a fat-ass. Just figure out a way to convert all the potential energy stored in drivers fat ass/belly and convert it to kinetic energy, it will kill 2 birds with one stone

Feds Now Oppose Aereo, Rejecting Cloud Apocalypse Argument

vivek7006 Re:Just Sad (140 comments)

Windows 7 Media Center rocks. Highly recommended. Plus it supports premium cable via cable card. Comcastic douche in my area even give a $2 refund for not using their crappy STB. The only thing I lose is VOD, but I don't give a shit since Netflix and Amazon Prime via Roku is 10 times better than their comcastic service
