Comment IOT good. IOT + forced shit BAD! (Score 1) 421

IOT is great but I'll keep out until companies understand I do not want a device that connects to thier server only and probablyu at a subscription.

But it's getting easier and easier to do your own these days with lots of great kits around, so I'm sure I'll be fine.

Anyone stupid enough to trust some small startup (or indeed megacorp) will get what they deserve.

Comment Re:anything under 4cm is good enough! (Score 1) 167

While I agree that the current trend for thin over battery life id ridiculous I would rather not go back to 4 cm laptops. I must have one of two somewhere in the loft.

3.0cm is fine by me though. I do wonder how thic the old mono laptop brick is though. Still it ran monkey island fine!

However an extended battery that increases the height a bit would be fine and give people the choice.

Ahh you are one of those, if it is technically legal then it's ok idiots.

This is the problem with laws, it has to be exact. people find loopholes.

They follow the law but don;t follow the indented spirit of the law.

I'm sure if you found a loophole that made murder legal you would be out there killing as many people as possible becuase it was legal. ONCE MORE. IDIOT.

Vista post SP1 was pretty much fine and much like win 7. The only reason 7 was released was to combat the tarnished name of vista.

I actually bought vista. Why? Because XP 64 bit was abandoned, and 64 bit os was needed because 4gb (often 2.5gb or even less) was not enough.

The scary thing it that there was a win 7 32 bit and beyond! People are idiots stop giving them a choice!

> preload nothing but the OS

Which leads to the question what is the OS.

The point being many current andropid distributions make the os something other than default (and what is default anyway).

So people complain that they cant remove essential parts of an os on something they got. Maybe research it better, tools.

I do not like multi player games much.

However. I love mmorpgs.

SWG was great. the best even. I could even have lived with the changes but the chanegs enrofec multi player. No more could you ger buffed and go out and play on your own.

For me the thing about mmorpgs is not the multiplayer its just the having real people around that is cool.

Yes I do like the occasional team up. But I hate for it to be fopreced.

Am mostyly playing swtor right now. However the foreced need mroe than 1 player parts are annoying. I wish i could turn them off so i do not see them.

I also think to much is put into multiplayerism bits.

But eh, such is.
