Comment No Fools' Cry (Score 1, Interesting) 160

Internet fanboys buy into hype, then cry when their childlike foolishness leads them to disappointment and regret. Childlike entitlement kicks in and tantrums follow. It happens over and over, year after year.

It's a game about exploration and discovery. Were they supposed to give you a comprehensive list of everything that could possibly happen in the game before you bought it? A grownup would either wait and buy the game after reading enough reviews to make a wise decision, or take a gamble and pre-order and accept that gambles sometimes pay off and sometimes don't.

Don't you people get tired of acting like children? Why not just grow up and stop making things worse for yourself and the people around you?

And don't the rest of you get tired of these people who are old enough to be grownups demanding to be indulged in their foolishness like 10-year-olds? Why not tell them to grow up instead of indulging their ongoing foolishness?

Comment It's fine to let companies set prices (Score 1) 326

What is not fine is to give a very long monopoly to only one company to make them... without competition the price will not naturally fall.

You have to allow some time let companies have some profits on research, but how long has the Epi-Pen been around? Long enough there should be more than one company making hem now.

The summary mentions security a bunch of times, but it says nothing about any specific security measures or requirements. So I clicked through to the article. The article is similar to the summary: no specifics. It links to a long "requirements" document.

What does the document "require" regarding security? Answer: a written plan. 5G networks should write down their plan and send it to the FCC. It should have some specific list of headings and sub-parts.

So the result of this is ... paperwork. Yay...?

The nanny-state would tend to mandate the WiFi stay locked for security reasons, or at least make sure people unlocking the WiFi were properly punished later by whatever means the state has (which are many).

In this actual case, it's private citizens calling for other private citizens for devices to be unlocked...
