Comment Uphill Battle (Score 1) 179

It's going to take some serious marketing to separate the public's perception of pure android vs. carrier versions... I don't think it's practical to try and have both, unless it's a first step towards attempting to eliminate leverage of the carriers totally, and I don't even think that's possible considering android is basically open source. It would be like Apple having a pure Apple iphone, along with Samsung's iFone, Huwaei's eyeFone+, HTC's iPhon+ - all with their separate flavors of Apple's iOS and specialized functionality, making Apple just a leading player in it's own market. If Google really wants to do this they need deep hardware design and integration to go along with Android, which is where I thought they were heading with Motorola before they got sent down the river.

you mean the unusually intense blizzard?... seem to be hearing a lot of "record breaking" "unusual" "once in a century" weather patterns in the last few years...

..but I'm sure it's all part of the natural cycle of our planets history.. and nothing at all that is being predicted. Carry on....

Comment Make government public. (Score 2) 261

You know how to make government work for the people... ALL meetings are public. every correspondence is public, ALL of it.. there would be no "covert" "back-room" "national security" anything... meetings with foreign leaders.. PUBLIC, ALL of it.. and if people want to keep things hush hush then they just won't deal with a public government and it would expose all those who are doing things for nefarious reasons. You want world peace, this is the way to do it.. The more people realize that they can't just work a deal for their own benefit the better this world will be... let issues stand on their own merits, not part of some "I'll vote for yours if you vote for mine" BS...

Comment Lateral aerodynamics (Score 3, Insightful) 236

While light is wonderful for fuel efficiency, I'm finding that with each new generation of car I drive, strong lateral gusts of wind tend to pose more of a problem while driving. This is purely conjecture of course, but I just don't remember having these troubles in the past, where it's harder to immediately compensate for a sudden strong gust of wind that can literally alter your cars course in an instant.

Comment Re:Instead should have HANGED the prevert! (Score 0) 155

At least a crime would have occurred...

could you elaborate on that..? Are you saying that his thoughts SHOULD be a crime, or are you saying that if he was hanged right away a crime would NOT have occurred? When we convict people of thoughts and feelings that is a slippery slope to an Orwellian future.
