Netflix Touts Open Source, Ignores Linux

zcold Hmmm (481 comments)

I dont see why someone couldnt just create some type of wrapper, or compile their own firefox to syphon their netflix stream on a windows computer... the data is there, you should be able to tap into it.

FarmVille Now Worth More Than EA

zcold Hmmm. (344 comments)

Ha, so thats what? 2 cents total? Obviously I kid, but seriously, EA hasnt really done much good lately. Their games are stale, ever since (and possibly before) they murdered the NFS series, porche unleashed was amazing... Then it had to go gangster etc... Gangsters and Boobs sell... /eorant Do I see a FarmBoobs in the future of Zynga? I sure hope and farm that... home boy.

The World's Smallest Full HD Display

zcold does it make any difference? (243 comments)

I thought HD resolution would only benefit the eyes at 40" screens.... Any less and you might as well stick with 720p... Would there really be any discernable difference with such a small screen?

Should ISPs Cut Off Bot-infected Users?

zcold Re:Yes - Rogers Does it. (486 comments)

Rogers Canada used to cuts my brothers internet off all the time (he lives in a house with like 12 people) I think its a good policy, though they are not very helpful in tracking it down. They also cut the internet at my work recently. On this occasion they were able to tell us the servers it was trying to access and the times it tried, which was helpful in tracking down the infection but for the most part they just tell you to get rid of the infection or else we cut you off for good.. I told my brother to make sure everyone in the house ran malwarebytes a few times every now and then and the problem went away.

Bittorrent To Replace Standard Downloads?

zcold Bell and Rogers wont let that happen (591 comments)

Most ISPs in canada throttle bit torrent traffic with deep packet inspection making any torrent transfers useless. Rogers for one, dont effect download speed but render upload useless with a max of a 5k burst every now and then. Bell I think throttles in a similar way.

3 Drinks a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

zcold Prevents Prostate Cancer (470 comments)

On a similar note, heavy beer drinkers have a much lower rate of prostate cancer. The beer doesnt really do anything, its the massive amounts of urination that take place... But still ... ^___^

Nexus One a Failed Experiment In Online Sales

zcold I cant wait! (366 comments)

I am so glad Google has decided that this failed experiment was indeed an ultimate and humiliating failure. The best phones come from the service providers. After they have stripped the phone of features they do not want on their network. Change the hardware to make it slightly cheaper and all around hack the ROM until it is unusable is far greater than receiving a phone from the manufacturer unchanged and unscathed. Its high time we rise up and tell Google and other Doo Gooder companies that we love having our service providers anally rape us, our children, and future generations till the end of time. I welcome our new overlords, Rogers, Bell, AT&T, Verizon etc... *bent over*

Supreme Court Says Gov't Employee Texts Not Private

zcold seriously? (263 comments)

I cant imagine anyone thinking they have a right to privacy on a company device. I have a mac book provided by my company. Anything I do on it I consider privacy, obviously I use another device to browse my pr0n. I freelance on the side. I dont use this laptop to do work outside of the company, and if I did, I dont leave a trace on the laptop. If they were to issue phones, I would have a separate phone for anything non business.

Facebook agrees with Canada on privacy controls

zcold zcold writes  |  about 5 years ago

zcold writes "It appears that facebook will be changing how 3rd party applications interact with peoples facebook data. Previously, to add an application, users had to give the application full access to all of their facebook data. With the changes, the application developer will have to specify which categories of data the software needs, so users can decide accordingly."
