Comment Re: White Leftists Whine, China Creates Superhuman (Score 2) 159

While I don't entirely disagree with you, this is an extremely slippery slope to go down.... I would actually oppose you until we 100% (well as close as we can get) understand genetics. For as advanced as we are right now, we're just leaving the horse and buggy era, and its just too soon to be messing, wholesale, with human genetics.

I'm typing this as I transcode Bluerays for my plex server on my 4yo 8core PhenomFX black with 32GB of ram. I'm currently wishing for the latest gen processor as, ripping the BD Disc took 30 minutes, and then transcoding it to the 1080p30 SuperHQ in handbrake is going to take ~ 5 hours. I guess if your surfing the web and checking emails, computer have been fast enough for a while, but if you actually do real work, for example a jenkins build farm for a whole company you still want the cutting edge.

Yeah, um no. While I am tired of thin phones ith small batteries as well, there simply no way I'm going to take a bulky DSLR attachment for my phone anywhere. I'd rather take a bulky DSLR to take real pictures. same with RAID, Audio, etc.etc. the phones today are good enough for joe avg. but when you actually want quality something, a dedicated device will always be superior.

I swear to God the first time I buy a concert ticket and the DJ hooks up an iPhone, I'm demanding my money back.
