What's Keeping You On Windows?
I do audio production and although some people swear by mac, you just have more options on a widows machine with so many 3rd party developers and amazing freeware options thanks to things like sythedit. Linux on the other hand is a bitch to do anything audio-wise - I keep all of my machines dual booting because I actually like linux but it just isn't functional for what I do at home.
Anti-Piracy PI Talks About Building Cases Against File-Sharers
Am I a criminal, considering how much "potential crack" is in my refrigerator under the name "baking soda" and how much "potential methamphetamine" is under my bathroom sink under the names "bleach" and "drano"......
ISPs Will Now Be Copyright Cops
While I'm all for protecting our rights, changing the system to everybody is protected, and making sure our votes count, let's not kid ourselves, we're still just whining about our first world problems of not having enough luxuries.
actually we are complaining that people with money are "whining about our first world problems of not having enough luxuries" and pushing laws and regulations to crack down on the populace for not giving them an unending supply.
How To Jailbreak and Upgrade Old Android Phones
last time I checked there were not custom IOS ROMs out there.
it would certainly be awesome if there were - though the whole monopoly on the hardware thing is what prevents it, most ROMs are compiled from other base ROMs and tweaked or rebuilt - as there is only one iOS and one line of hardware you don't really have the diversity of base developer ROMs to work from.
Rootkit Infection Requires Windows Reinstall
I have some customers that can get more viruses than a Bangkok whore on a Saturday night
I didn't know that Bankok whores run code, let alone after work hours.
"Expert Body" To Decide Which Sites To Block For Copyright Infringement

Winklevoss Twins Finally Give Up Fighting Facebook
Maybe if you copyright that idea and sue the Winklevii when they do something that sounds similar (to someone who has no idea about islands) then you can have a couple million for yourself.
See, this is why you aren't in the money and they are... as that would be a method, it would be a patent and not a copyright.
Judges Berate Spammer For 'Incompetent' Litigation
What exactly does that mean ? Litigation is so expensive that you should just pay up when somebody sues you
for thousands of dollars ? Is the court encouraging blackmail by lawsuit ??
Unfortunately that is the way that the system works. It isn't fair but it is the way it is and people don't want to change it because they don't realize how bad it is until the hammer hits them.
Apple Causes Religious Reaction In Brains of Fans
the question is why did virtually none of Apple's competitors do it first?
the same reason more people don't use linux, it is primarily designed for and by people interested in their functionality and not for the general public. That's why there are so many robust possibilities but you still end up with an isolated user base
Apple Causes Religious Reaction In Brains of Fans
Atheism isn't a religion, but it is a leap of faith nevertheless. You are basically saying, without any proof, that god doesn't exist
kind of like you believe with a leap of faith that there aren't zombies roaming the streets and aliens taking over our cities?
it isn't a leap of faith to believe that something that you have no evidence of doesn't exist... it is faith when you believe that something with no evidence of it's existence does.
Ask Slashdot: How Should Sony Compensate PSN Users?
It's not that anyone wants a pony
I want a pony.
Netflix CEO Hesitant To Fight Cable
But, on the whole, I agree with you. The government *is* more powerful and potentially more dangerous than a corporation.
The government only has as much power and money as you want to give it, unless you do stupid things like have been done recently. We have actively given up our rights over the last couple of decades, that isn't the government's fault - it is ours. The government isn't evil, people are just rash and reactionary and people IN the government take advantage of that.
The Frankentablet: Windows and Android Mashup
I don't have a lot of love for the tablet since I have read other reviews that complained of the performance but when I read:
this "slap it together mentality" is one reason no tablets come close to the iPad.
I couldn't really take anything he said seriously as I knew that the rest of the review would be a bunch of biased crap - and when he goes into the windows usage it did get really stupid.
Sony Officially Blames Anonymous For PSN Hack
Maybe actually using the credit cards isn't their MO, but they were behind the gawker intrusions which also stole passwords and account details. Anonymous being behind this makes sense because if you remember, right after doing the DOS attacks, they stopped and put out a public statement saying that they wanted to do something to directly affect Sony and not to bomb the servers because it only effected users. Ironically if they are behind it directly intruding on the servers actually affected users far more than the couple of days of DOS attacks as the network has been offline for weeks to shore up the security.
Department of Justice: FBI Too Focused On Child Porn
...instead of focusing on child pornographers.
Actually, no. At least if you believe what you see on the news every other day, there has been a far larger focus on consumers than pornographers. Pornorgraphers seem to have more of a free pass, you hear about some high school teacher getting busted for viewing kiddie porn every other day but as far as those making the stuff - I think I remember a story of a ring going down a little while ago but it was an international ring and most of the people were overseas so I don't know how much the FBI was really responsible for.
News Corp. Looking To Sell MySpace
...and improve security, I deleted my myspace a while back because it constantly got hacked despite the fact that I had a totally unconnected email to anything and a 27 character alpha and numeric password and was rarely if ever. I would log out, and maybe a month or two later when I logged back in I would have been sending all kinds of spam to other myspace users during that time by god knows how many people.... not keylogged, not phished just plain hacked.
What Happens To Data When a Cloud Provider Dies?
the cloud is just a new name on an old concept
yes and no, "the cloud" when it is referring to cloud computing is an old concept (like back in the day when bill joy proposed genie) but was never really put into practice because the reliance of computing was always left to the user and not to the machine serving up the data. Virtualization and low powered mobile devices made that more of a reality and more of a necessity. personally I am not a fan of the idea of virtualizing everything, but it absolutely has it's place.
Sony's New Android-based Dual Screen Tablets
I will not purchase another Sony product as long as I live. They treat people badly, and I've had quite enough of them
Every corporation treats people badly, I have never seen Sony do anything any worse than any other corporation.
More Nintendo Console Rumors
None of their other consoles emulate. They all have separate processors dedicated to the other device.
Having a dedicated processor to maintain legacy systems makes things overcomplicated and limits future design revisions. Look at Sony with the ps3,as much as I would love BC, the latter models and slim would still be far more expensive and problematic as the earlier models are if they tried to maintain BC through a chip. If they are the same general architecture though, I agree with you that it will probably be the best way to go.
Apple Sues Samsung Over Galaxy Phones and Tablets
If Samsung dumps them there are a lot of Japanese suppliers that they can still buy from,.... oh wait, nevermind.
