Comment Goodbye Samsung (Score 1) 106

Removing the headphone jack and the home button would be the last shitty straws. Unreliable phones, bloatware, nagware, and lagging Android releases = a bad experience. Not to mention a battery you can't remove - they are copying Apple's worst decisions. My next phone will not be a Samsung. Which is a shame.

Comment It's not the dongle, it's the specs (Score 1) 212

The new macbook 13 models have slower cpus than the last gen. The RAM maxes out at 16gb. The keyboard has been hobbled for a poorly thought out "touch" experience no one asked for. When I bought my macbook a couple of years ago it was a decent price for the specs, and performed well. Now that it's dead, I still want to wait a year to upgrade to see if Apple will actually respect their pro community of users, or if I need to bit the bullet and switch back to a windows/linux machine.

Comment Re:Anti-Hillary is not Pro-Trump (Score 1) 867

Why the fuck is this modded insightful. Trump has incited his followers to violence, appeals to neonazis and white supremacists, and has caused holocaust survivors to say "he seems familiar".

Trump and his supporters are a poison in this country, and suggesting Hillary Clinton even comes close to being as evil is delusional.

Comment Verizon Will Bleed Customers (Score 1) 222

Having as much data as you want changes usage patterns. I stream music and movies on my PC, and never would dream of it on my phone with Verizon. The *second* another carrier has the same coverage - Verizon is going to bleed customers who decide "actually I do want to use my phone to stream media". Since Verizon markets streaming media apps - they are feeding the very hunger that will take away customers who want to see those promises delivered on.

Comment Samsung is Not Trustworthy (Score 1) 84

Between how they treat their workers ( and their customers (look up the issue with their camera glass on the S7 and how they have responded), Samsung isn't worth trusting. I have an S3 now, no way in hell I'm buying another one of their phones.

Comment Inevitable (Score 1) 140

Programmers like myself like to believe we are exempt from being made as replaceable as possible. We're not. Whether it's Outsourcing, H2B, or crappy projects like this... Greed finds a way. The programmers of today will be the mill workers of tomorrow. I hope society figures out a better economic model by then, because *everything* we've tried up until now seems to fail significant amounts of people.

Comment Re:2 bad choices; Trump may excel (Score 4, Insightful) 993

Trump is a straight up fascist. His threats against entire groups of people, the press... it boggles the imagination he's gotten this far. He's, perhaps appropriately, a loaded game of Russian Roulette. What's even crazier is all the tinfoil Clinton conspiracy theories that have no basis in fact (when there are so many legitimate reasons to not like or vote for her). But she is so very clearly the lesser of two evils (and she even has plenty of reasonable reasons to enthusiastically vote FOR her, crazy I know), it's nuts to see anyone argue otherwise. Next to Bernie she's horrible. Next to Trump she's a saint.

One silver lining, perhaps Johnson and Weld will guide the future of the GOP. The mainstream Republican party has lost it's way, and is imploding. If Mitt Romney endorses them, things could get interesting.
