Then they should quit using the word "faster", because that doesn't say what they think it does. I could say my 1 Mbps HomePNA network is faster than my 300 Mbps cable internet and everybody would laugh at me because clearly 300 Mbps is faster (even if is has ten times higher latency).

16 times faster is too slow? Basic math, people. DDR-4000 (a.k.a. PC-32000) is 32 GBps. Today's SATA3 SSDs do 500 MBps. 500 MBps times 1000 is 500 GBps, or almost 16 times faster than DDR-4000. If the random hype claims of "1000 times faster" are true, then this kicks the shit out of current RAM.

There's more than enough evidence that shows people with guns are the ones inclined to take them everywhere just to intimidate everyone within sight. In fact, nobody's ever seen somebody without a gun go around with a gun to intimidate people! You might want to see a psychiatrist for that denial and projection problem you have.

Really? You're claiming that PowerShell, running in a damn cmd.exe piss-poor excuse for a terminal, with Windows's crappy excuse for a console, "obliterates" what I can do with bash, either through Konsole or any of a dozen other terminal choices with tabbed interfaces, or on 12 non-X VTs that can be switched between, either of which takes a whole keystroke to swap between?

The difference makes itself up quite quickly, hence, if you can't afford the up-front cost, you probably can't afford a new car in the first place, and a lot of people in that situation are too uneducated financially to even begin to understand the benefits of paying more up front instead of getting a lower "monthly payment" that'll cost you a lot more over time, and will jump on that $350 a month because they can "afford" it like they can afford spending $20 on fast food every single day instead of buying a microwave and some groceries and be saving money within a week.

I think it will be WONDERFUL for everybody. The authors that are dumping trash because self-publishing lets them will stop getting paid for trash. Maybe it will convince them to stop writing (for a very loose definition of "writing") entirely, and I'll actually be able to buy books without spending hours filtering through the moron word spewers.
