Comment As a person who owns 2 hacked 3DS's (Score 1) 41

Nintendo is really late on this boat, not even sure why they are doing this now.

The 3DS was hacked a few years ago, but required a 4.5 or less version firmware.
Then like 2 years ago, a entry point was found under the 9.2 firmware, while 9.2 was the current firmware, and it was a community found exploit, which led to custom firmwares that didn't need hardware cards (like the Gateway or Sky). Since then we've had excellent work on hacking the 3ds, found multi entry points, homebrew entry points and other stuff. Best thing is the Freeshop, which allows you to download games for free off the eshop.

So ya, Nintendo is really late on this bus, mainly seeing as the Switch comes out in March 2017 and honestly the 3DS will probably stop being supported next year.

Comment Go back to make it illegal. (Score 3, Insightful) 270

In 2013 Obama signed a bill which part of allows the use of propaganda in the USA legal again (made illegal in 1947). Which is why we have so much fake news now, media sources aren't required to fact check since that would expose the government backed fake news.

So how about we make this sort of shit illegal again?

In 2013 Obama signed a bill that in part, allowed the use of propaganda in the USA. Something that wasn't allowed before then. Since then we seen effects it has had. Mainly in this election with the fake stories being ran along side real stories.

This is why no one fact checks anymore, no need to.

Not providing HDMI is indeed a mistake, but what's unforgivable is the lack of even COMPONENT outputs, or even VGA. It would have been easier to convert the output to RGB than to convert it to composite, and you would have way better clarity on today's televisions.

As the summary says, it's for the Brazil market, a market that is mostly Standard Definition TV's.

So it's not a mistake, it's intentional because they aren't selling it to the USA or Europe. Since Sega seems willing to have the Megadrive be produced again, why don't you put together a company, throw some specs at Sega and get their permission to make a modern Megadrive? Then you an correct all the wrongs you see done and make some money.

Comment Gas Chamber ruins integrity of lock (Score 3, Interesting) 285

By putting in a chamber to hold the gas, you then ruin the integrity of the lock by make the metal weaker and easier to cut thru.

If I am stealing bikes, like I did when I was a junkie, puking isn't going to stop me from finishing the job and grabbing the bike. By putting in the gas, you made it easier to cut thru the lock, so I'm guessing it won't stop as many people as you think.
