difference between a quality DVD upscale and a Bluray

You lost all credibility when you said upscale. You just showed that you don't understand that you've been caught in a marketing gimmick.

And ... pretty much everyone can tell difference if you put them side by side, its just that most people will never see them side by side because they have far better things to do than sit around jerking off about the video quality ... like actually watching the video.

You're doing it completely wrong. You need to get a clue about viewing distance and the ratio between display size and it.

You're one of those guys who thinks he has this kick ass awesome setup because you made it bigger, but really, you just made it shittier.

You should at least get the most basic of clues from wikipedia:

At no point should your display be larger than the distance you're viewing it from, thats just retarded.

Only if it saves 30-40 percent more than before the vacs was used.

Instead what happens is you create drug resistant virus that are 50-60 more likely to infect, so cutting it down by 30-40 percent is still higher than it was before you started. Net Loss.

And hint: No one has 'no immunity at all'

Considering recent studies show that cancer is more likely to be caused by genetics than smoking ... you might want to adjust your ignorant holier than thou attitude and learn how science actually works rather than blindly believing shit you've been indoctrinated with and being too stupid to think for yourself.

Hint: Science is the opposite of what you think it is. Science is actually questioning what you think you know, not believing what someone told you in D.A.R.E.

And with your permission and all of that

Could you be more of an asshole?

First off, when did Google start asking permission BEFORE it just did privacy invading shit?

Second, how many times have you (Schmidt) basically said you didn't give a fuck about peoples privacy or their wishes and that you were going to get your way eventually anyway?

Lets be realistic here Schmidt, you don't mean a word of what you just said. What you mean is that you want devices in every room analyzing everything everyone does in an attempt to figure out how to sell them to advertisers for a higher rate. THAT IS WHAT YOU MEAN.

So basically you want Apple and Microsoft to keep supporting your crusty old hardware with new features that it doesn't support anyway?

Both Apple and Microsoft provide 'support' longer than pretty much any other software maker on the planet, including any Linux vendor you can name.

Get a clue fanboy.

Android is the antithesis of privacy. You might as well be looking for GNU/OS X.

Androids entire existence is to gather your private info for Google. There is literally no other reason ite exists. If your not ok with that, you should probably start looking for alternatives.

You'll be more likely to use lava to chill your drinks than get privacy from Android.

Yea, but the latest OS X runs on hardware that can hardware emulate yor PowerPC at twice the speed your used to.

I'm sure your Mac can emulate x86 fast enough to run windows 3.1 like a champ to.

But let's stop pretending that your setup is ideal, sustainable or more importantly workable for others.

An adequate bootstrap is a contradiction in terms.
