Comment AppleTV TV (Score 1) 130

Among the sizzling innovations in the new Apple programming will be that you can no longer turn off your TV or stop playback once you've started an episode, it will automatically perform "updates" of your platform to prevent non-Apple content being played back in the future, and you will need to sign over your firstborn and put your house up as collateral to create a streaming account in the first place.

Comment VR is the greatest thing since VR (Score 0) 114

So VR heralds a golden age. Like in the 90s, when VR was the hottests new thing. Then again in the 00s. And now the 10s. I can't wait for VR to be the hottest new thing in the 20s!

Excuse me, I am going to go not enjoy my 3D TV set while waiting for 3D TV to become the hottest new thing in the 20s.

Comment Clearance (Score 1) 244

To be serious for a moment, even if the US government did have E.T. secrets, I doubt the president would have clearance to know anything about it. The president is basically a figurehead, so I would be surprised if any president was told anything with as deep repercussions as E.T. and spanning more than one 4-year period.

"Actually, even Michael Moore [] is saying that voting for Trump is like one giant f-you, and that it will feel good."

Yes, he did say that - in the segment when he was placating Trump voters so they wouldn't walk out but would sit down and listen to the rest of the show. And then he also proceeded for like 40 minutes to explain why that would be a bad idea and that Hillary is actually a better candidate than she is given credit for.

Voting for Trump because you don't like Hillary is like deciding to burn the house down, because you dont like the color of the wallpaper.

Comment WILL older OS'es install? (Score 1) 276

"Of course, older versions of Windows and alternative operating systems will still install and run on Kaby Lake and Zen. They are x86 processors, after all."
This is contraty to what I've read elsewhere, but I'd be interested to know once and for all, if I need new hardware (Kaby or lateR), will I be able to continue using Win7? If there are no kernel drivers (which is what the other articles stated), then ... ?

Comment Re:Would you undertake voting fraud? (Score 2) 239

"First two options are identical, they both translate to "it's okay to subvert democracy if it means MY candidate wins!"

Which talking to people seems to be how a lot of them feel, so the results wouldn't be uninteresting. And amongst those, you would get a split between the candidates, so the poll options make total sense. That said my vote would probably also be "Yes, but I wouldn't know where to begin anyway".
