Who would want to use it.
Just get an android that costs the same or less.
But really Amazon, how hard is it to add features, get a clue, your dumb ass new age programmers havent heard of 'settings' like the old days in the 90s, where every god damn thing had a option 0....100.
Even if the options were stupid, let users choose, stop being STALIN

Comment Just ask the CIA/NSA/DOD for secrets (Score 1, Funny) 207

Im sure the govt has many secrets and break thrus that they are keeping secret.

Imagine if it was easy to create a worm hole to cut a planet in half, ISIS would dare do that and we dont need some wacko muslim doing that.

And yes there is a secret shadow govt, and secret highly advanced break away civilization with tech decades beyond mainstream, that probably has deep space convoys and ships and far off bases etc.

Comment Install Win10 mobile, on any Snapdragon Mobile (Score 1) 126

All MS has to do, is port win10 mobile to more common android devices.

You can already install win8 mobile to android snapdragon samsung devices.

Imagine if you could install Win 10 mobile, on ANY android phone, MS could kill all the crap android devices without making any hardware, they just have to port it with a team of 1000 engineers to the top 25 brands, and make it easy to install like windows to desktops.

Comment blame Nixon the stupid fwit pres (Score 1) 131

after the moon landings they had the earth rise photo on the wall on the oval office.

a year later they replaced it with a stupid tree painting, that's the true level of commitment to space by dumb fucks in office that are nothing more than high school jocks in a suit.

nasa also got a retard looser for a head that didn't want to be there.

fact is, USA and corporations would rather spend $20 trillion dollars over 40 years on wars and military, while nasa gets a few crumbs. Criminals they all are in office, utter scum.

Comment multitask anyone? (Score 1) 107

Why cant the sensors have their own memory, and record data, regardless of what the state of the main computer is.

Each sensor should have its own cpu/OS/storage/backup battery. Main computer can just access each sensors data via http, over internal ethernet (backup wifi), and repackage up to send to earth, while the sensors can keep recording at the same time.

Comment BAD DESIGN NASA (Score 1) 107

Why not make the craft in such a way so that when it points in dish to earth, its camera can still point to pluto, heres a tip, how about install TWO cameras with 180deg fov, and then you will never miss your target.

Heres a clue, how about a motorized lens that can rotate the camera or lens or whatever.

Heres another clue, design an ultimate design thats fit for any planet/flyby, a generic all purpose best of all situations craft, with plugin addons for specific sensors.

Stop redesigning from scratch each craft for 700 million. NASA you need to learn from the PC industry, modular design. Reduce costs, send more probes, or always send up pairs, like the rovers.

Second, why are they still sending images in JPEG '94, they should use JPEG2000, to reduce the data by another 300% or send 3x more images.

JPEG'94 is junk.
