Comment fucking cranky (Score 0) 447

Slashdot keeps getting worse. I've seen better shitposting on 4chan and reddit.

In the past, under Taco, someone would've posted something really awesome about preparing a turkey with detailed instructions. Nowadays Slashdot is so fucking desperate for content to remain relevant the site's trying to get other people to write shit.

Just stop. Return to the current state of being a week behind the rest of the internet regarding news and tech.

Comment Bye Apple (Score 5, Funny) 451

Steve Jobs would have never apologized. He woudl've given it just the right spin that everyone would feel contrite over making jokes at Apple's expense. The next release would be perfect, as Steve would have demanded, and the kerfuffle would be consigned to largely forgotten history.

Tim Cook goofed.

It's okay, left handed people don't have souls. Just like gingers.

Also you're complaining about chirality in technology? Really? How is this news for nerds? This place has become an even bigger gay gang bang since Taco picked up his toys and went home. OMG Ponies had more gravitas than the shit posted on Slashdot of late.


Submission + - Soft-Shell Robot Comes Complete With Cloaking Abilities (

heptapod writes: Harvard roboticists are close to mimicking cephalopod camouflage in a lab. This latest bit of bio-mimicry involves soft, silicone-based robots with a web of tiny channels flowing through their silicone skin. Going further, incorporating the muscle structure of cephalopods opens up an entirely new world of flexible, self-camouflaging robotics. More can be found at Harvard's website.

All power corrupts, but we need electricity.
