It's very curious how Slashdot (and other large web forums like Reddit) mostly lean left on every issue..... except gun rights/gun control, where an NRA convention that Charlton Heston himself would be proud of breaks out every time. I've never figured out why.

is alive and well. The Americans will stop at nothing to conquer the world. "Freedom" and "democracy" are merely code words for slavery at the hands of the Americans. I praise Cuba for their continued heroic resistance to the evil imperialistic power literally in their backyard. They've shown that the world will not simply bow down to American power like the Americans want.

Somehow this will be portrayed as EVIL RED CHINA by the compliant Western media and the Slashdot China-hating brigade. It seems you are doing everything you accuse us of doing, and more. Total American hypocrisy as usual, but since the Americans have been sanctimonious hypocrites for decades, it seems it cannot be helped, and Slashdot is no different. As usual this is totally fine because these guys are on your team, and your team cannot commit a foul right, while everything the other team does is a foul?

So when your guys hack us, it's funny and awesome and great, while if we supposedly hack you, without any evidence of government involvement you proclaim it as an evil injustice and proof that EVIL RED CHINA is up to no good? The Western/American hypocrisy is thick in this thread, but that's typical because the Slashdot Anti-China Hate Train is always rolling in high gear. You sanctimonious Americans believe as usual that just like in a sports match, your team cannot commit a foul, while everything the other team does is a foul.

What you posted is a (rather effective actually, if left uncountered) example of propaganda. You posted something which is true, but which is skewed very far in one direction by the fact that you only mention the one facet which benefits your side and designed to stir up hate for the Democrats. You neglected to mention that for example, when left wing bloggers criticized the US military for actions during the Iraq/Afghanistan wars various right wing leaders publicly denounced them as traitors, and that the Republican Party pushed the hardest for the USA PATRIOT Act and the accompanying security apparatus.

that we won't see any more sniveling, whiny, hand-wringing articles about how EVIL RED CHINA is murderously hacking poor innocent USA, and that the USA needs to declare war on them or something because this is an unprecedented and dastardly attack?

Oh wait, oops, nope, that is typical Western sanctimoniousness on display, they will keep tooting the horn with no shame and continue the anti-China hate train, even though they've been revealed now to be total hypocrites.

They're confirmed to be spying on everyone around the world, so it's totally reasonable to suspect them of doing this too, with no evidence whatsoever except circumstantial talk and random speculation? Am I doing this right?

Of course the article starts with accusing China of hacking. Western hypocrisy never ends, even Snowden's devastating revelations couldn't derail you hypocrites on your anti-China hate train.

of Al-Qaeda terrorists who have been videotaped eating the heart and liver of the enemy and who executed dozens of government prisoners after a battle? Who are the sworn enemy of the United States and the West? Who would kill every Christian and Shia Muslim if they got the chance?

But of course, this is the Western media, who will glorify this filth and pretend that Assad is the greatest evil, when he's the one fighting to save Syria from becoming Somalia/Afghanistan.

because the Bahrain government is sponsored by Saudi Arabia, and the USA has a big military base there. Consistently these protests have been ignored, or if covered, the Western media has put a pro government slant, especially on the Saudi Arabia aided crackdown awhile back. Western hypocrisy on full display, just like in a sports match it's just fine if your team does it while it's the embodiment of evil if the other team does it (see Libya, Syria).

Nokia Lumia 1020 Video and Photo Shoot Preview 178 178

from the what's-the-word dept.
MojoKid writes "Nokia, perhaps more-so than any other smartphone manufacturer in the game right now, needed to find a way to make something special. The new Nokia Lumia 1020, though it sports essentially the same internals and display as Nokia's Lumia 920, most definitely is different, and perhaps even an attractive alternative, depending on your specific needs. 41 megapixels of resolution, floating image stabilization and a powerful camera app to back it up, will make the Lumia 1020 pretty 'special' to some people, some of whom might be considering a Windows Phone for the first time as a result. Initial impressions of the device and its camera performance, show Nokia's new flagship device does shoot impressive still images and video, thanks in part to the Lumia 1020's image sensor and stabilization features. Nokia's Pro Cam app is comprised of a slick dial interface that offers virtually all of the controls you'd find in a DSLR camera. From White Balance, to ISO, Focus, Exposure and Flash Control, it's all in there. When you snap a picture, the 1020's camera grabs two versions of the shot; a large full resolution (7700x4300, roughly) shot with a huge 11MB file size is captured and an additional 5MP image is derived from that and stored as well. The results, especially in decent lighting, can be impressive."
