This exact comment has already been posted elsewhere. Try to be more original!
Finally someone asks this here, where it was always supposed to have been asked, eventually...
The answer has been waiting for you for a long time, although I'm surprised your UID is so high (I expected some wizard to finally make room for me to say this!)
By having computers having power over humans, and making them perfect!
1920 x 1080 is very high-res, compared to my 640x480 VGA panel. What panels did you have in mind, and where can I see one?
Yep. Downloading it just now, to see what all this fuss has been about. Seriously...
It's interesting, and relevant, to contrast what the Americans are doing with Apple and their locked-down, passive consumer, computing device, and what the BBC did with Acorn Computers - specifically chosen because the computer was designed with learning about the device itself, as well as what can be created and worked on with it.
It's also interesting that another bidder for the BBC Micro Project - Sinclair - didn't get a look in because they were game- and entertainment- orientated - anybody remember the frustration of trying to type a program using words embossed on the keys? I do, and I hated it. The Amstrad CPC, was the antithesis of this, and with hindsight, I was glad I had one, and not a ZX (even though I was then "stuck" with that machine until I was 14!)
Now that he's gone, and the troll that was stalking and mimicking him has gone, we seem to miss them...
Either that, or this is his way of being remembered!
You're definitely more likely to be a shill, based on the comment you replied to, and your carefully written but spurious argument and "high horse". You reek of "corporate responsibility" and all the duplicity that goes with that.
First of all, why have we got any reason to believe that if someone were promoting Pebble for reward, they'd make a dumb anecdotal comment and ju st give the link?
Since the Pebble is a) more open (computing-wise), b) a lot cheaper and c) a commodity (replacable) item, as opposed to the iWatch's inevitable proprietory platform and vendor lock-in (Will it work fully )with anybody else's smartphones?), anybody promoting it would likely point out these things, and others, giving us REASON to click the link and buy.
You're using words like lamer, implying things you can't possibly read into the comment, like whether he understands what "we" want - this also simultaneously implies that you speak for all of us (if you want something like and iWatch, iPad etc. - you definitely don't speak for all of us!!)
This is the exact same manipulation technique used by shills (government and corporate) to control our purchasing and thought patterns - resulting in the system of control and manipulation Apple et. al. are at the top of right now.
tl;dr: He accuses the parent of being a shill, his comment makes it look more the other way round.
and no comments.
. Really? Link or it didn't happen...
Are you from Yorkshire? Some 'shire, anyways!
What a polite way to respond to a "Woosh!"
Lovely, in this age of sarcasm and "duh!" - thank you for brightening my day!
Come on, Grammar Nazis, if you're going to do it, do it properly.
It doesn't matter worth a damn if my ass is in the seat if you're driving. And it doesn't, from the same example, even matter who is occupying the driver's seat.
However, your mileage may vary based on who's driving - and that person's ass is likely (but necessarily) in the driver's seat!
Godwin's Law is still Godwin's Law even when the obvious name isn't mentioned. Discussion over.
APK won't come anymore unless I personally summon him... APK, u there?
