Comment I actually saw it at the theaters! (Score 2, Insightful) 295

I remember this movie vividly as it's my single most biggest disappointing movie, EVER!

Seeing the previews I just KNEW it would be a fantastic show and on the same level as The Matrix. Boy was I ever wrong. My friends still to this day rub it in my face that I saw it at the theaters.

I was so let down, it's not even funny. I think what really clenched it was when the cavemen taught themselves how to "break in" a harrier jet the same way they would break in broncos.

However, the good side of it is I'll never forget this lesson, and IMDB is my friend when questioning whether I'm about to see another Battlefield Earth.

Comment This lessens any legitimacy of Windows 7 (Score 1) 830

When I was watching this, I was thinking of the already posted: Tupperware, Amway, and other similar cheesy tricks to get someone to buy some crap nobody really wants.

This infomercial really lessens any legitimacy of Windows 7. Without seeing it, I already think it's something not worth checking out merely because of this one video. In time Microsoft will come to learn that this sort of publicity is going to turn out really negative for them.

Comment They read my newspaper article. (Score 1) 235

I write a weekly column for a local newspaper. I wrote how ISP's in general are monitoring traffic and are playing with throttling.

I got a call from a Comcast PR person about what exactly they do and don't do. I just thought I myself was particularly popular and that even large ISP's were reading my articles.

Thanks for bursting my bubble!
