Comment Re:Wireless Headphones (Score 1) 105

Yeah, that's the other part of this that I wouldn't be happy about if I were an apple customer- bluetooth sound quality is far, FAR from superb. While I DO own a pair of headphones of that variety, the only reason I use them at all is to make my life easier while working out/not destroying the cord like I have so many times before.

Speaking of which, I imagine many users will be stuck charging their headphones daily- perhaps even more if they're anything like mine which top out at 4 hours. Right now it's only a frustration, since I charge twice a week- but having to deal with it on a regular basis is not something I'd look forward to.

That being said, the silver lining I see in this is the possibility that we'll see a major push to improve the quality of wireless headphones. Unless they're using their own proprietary standard, at which point they can get fucked.

Comment Re:Peter Thiel didn't bankrupt Gawker (Score 1) 242

Thiel used his money to silence a news organization. Granted, the news organization had done some shitty things, but doing this even once proves it can work.

Even if you don't like Gawker (I don't), this is not a thing to be celebrated. It will be used again, and quite likely on targets far less deserving.

Comment Re:Great, so when will they ban the SJWs (Score 1) 119

Ouch. I had a very similar experience, but all I said was that sexual liberation doesn't mean that sexism is over. It all went downhill from there very fast, ending a week later with me being called a multitude of ableist and racial slurs by people who consider changing box art a threat to free speech.

Trump is also currently being sued for raping a minor that's tied to the Epstein case.

"I've known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,'' Trump booms from a speakerphone. "He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it -- Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

Comment Re:mainly for blu ray 4k / streeming 4k? (Score 1) 142

Indeed, and that's been their strategy for a while now (selling consoles at a loss to start), but given that many computers still have difficulty doing 4K at a stable rate this would be one HELL of a cost to eat. I'm very curious as to what the technical load out ends up being when all is said and done.
