Fuck off we're not your "audience", the users contribute to this site a thousand times more meaningful and interesting stuff than the hidden ads and the rest of the shit you're posting from time to time. And when everyone and their dog says this new beta site sucks, it's time to back off and apologize, not post some shitty "we hear you" message. Really change that arrogant attitude

I bet they've hired permanently some web designer and in order to justify his salary, they force down our throats a yearly redesign. I needed lots of time to adapt to the current one, but this new beta is the most shitty, generic, uninteresting layout I've seen in a long while on the web, and that includes generic, template based corporate sites. I don't know though if it's the layout or the continuous shitty stories and misleading summaries-titles that make it to the front page, that'll make me eventually abandon ./. Slashdot has become the synonymous for yellow journalism in the tech field. Send your emails to and let your voice be heard, they won't bother reading this comment section (i doubt they'll bother read the emails too..)

Oh those Slashdot titles never cease to amaze me. He got his ass whipped for good that multibillionaire now, didn't he? I'm pretty sure after losing that match Gates was very depressed during the whole flight in his multimillion dollar jet, while heading for this multimillion dollar mansion -_-

I really hope this doesn't turn out to be what the 3D trend has become for movies. Contrary to other past attempts for VR headsets, now there's both the hardware and the knowledge available to build something revolutionary that actually *works*. Plus JC is on-board so expectations are very high.
