Comment Re:is comcast conning me? (Score 1) 141

I have DSL that used to be cheap but they made me get a phone line and it almost doubled in price. (i don't need or use the phone line). I called comcast and they said i can get internet only for 44$ per month. I don't need tv because i get all i need from an OTA and the internet. Is that price for real or is there hidden prices that despite my asking about will still get tacked on my bill. I'm in central NJ, only choices are Verizon DSL(what i now have) and Comcast.

Comcast internet price they quoted you is a deal and will be a higher price after 6 months. That is the price they always quote, the deal price, never the real price.

Comment Don't give a fuck (Score 1) 400

I don't care what MS does. Fuck them. It's obvious this is a plan to get people to upgrade to W10, which by the way they are forcing it, means you want to stay really far away from it.

I wait on installing updates anyways, since MS has shown they will push broken updates and push telemetry data bullshit on windows 7 also.

Comment I have another theory (Score 0) 250

We the humans are stupid to think we have any ideas on how life is in the universe. We know barely anything about the planet we are on, let alone other planets in our solar system. Everything is else we do is basically guess work with no way to prove anything. We are stuck in our small, small, small, small, small, small, very fucking small part of the universe. WE KNOW NOTHING. So quit pretending we do.

Comment Put Super Glue on the Camera lenses (Score 1) 71

Since the camera's are not currently off, put superglue on the camera lens. It will block it from taking clear pictures and be hard a fuck to take off. And since they don't have the camera's on yet, they won't know who did it.

Sometimes you have to take your privacy back from those you who want to abuse it.

Comment Re:I dobut it was NSA (Score 1) 173

If the NSA was dumb enough to do this then they just wrote a blanket invitation to all countries to attack US owned agencies and companies openly with impunity. They will sound like complete hypocrites (even more so) and be ignored when other countries do it. I doubt NSA would be that dumb...I hope.

Read that article, they admit to hacking other countries.

Comment I do windows because I"m a gamer, but I'm old (Score 2) 369

This is why I run windows 7 for my games. But considering dumping windows and going linux only gamer. Well, that and my old consoles, I have plenty of games I can play on those also. Very few new PC games do it for me anymore. Doom was a great disappointment. It's Quake III with better graphics. Which is cool if you are into arena shooters, but I'm not. Maybe I'm getting too old, but PC games suck these days for the most part.

Linux before Windows 10 for sure.

Comment Re:A journalist does not know what is going on? (Score 1, Informative) 319

A journalist (of the WSJ no less) has no idea what is going on in their country? That's what was the most surprising to me. I mean, I knew about the 100-mile border rule and I am neither a journalist, nor a US citizen. I thought the US journalists are in on it with the government by not drawing attention to the slowly eroding US constitutional rights, but in this case it is not some conspiracy, the journalist is an idiot. Where idiot here is also used in the original meaning from the ancient greek (no unicode to list it here) which was referred to people who were not interested in the affairs of the State.
If a journalist whose job is to know stuff exactly like this, is surprised to find something like that out, what hope do the people in the US realize that they have let them take away their rights one by one?

Pretty sure most journalists these days just forward stories written by the powers that be. Doesn't require thinking for yourself, or doing anything other then selling your morals.

Comment If the TPP is past, this will come to America (Score 3, Interesting) 126

If the TPP is past, Corporations will be able to sue Governments for getting in the way of their making profit. So you can damn well bet that the advertisement networks will sue to get any type of ad blocking banned. And they will be backed by most other corporations also, so ya, this will be coming to America.
