It is SO "systemd". More of the binary is better bullshit.

If you need a .Net runtime for your shell, you are f*cked.

Since every object type that you'd want to build for *nix systems already exists as Perl or Ruby code, that can be accessed through C-PAN or Git, I really don't see what problem this solves. The problem of how to force a .Net runtime on every machine in existence?

Black hole.

I have 21-year-old acquaintances who have NEVER looked at voicemail in their entire lives. More so remarkable, because they'd individually had iPhones with a visual voicemail feature, for up to 20% of their time on earth.

You want to annoy my 16-year old? Call on the phone. I expect voice to be a nearly dead medium in a decade.

When you are almost depressed? Anything to take your mind off it.

When you are giddy? You can take on the WORLD! "That'll show 'em all!"

Somehow this observation is presented as a counter-intuitive result from examining new data. We ALL love counter-intuitive results. Comprehending them makes us feel intelligent.

Comment T-Mobile acts like they want our business (Score 1) 194

Verizon acts like they are doing you a big favor by letting you use their network. I switched from Verizon to T-Mobile because I wanted to be able to use Google Nexus devices. (My last Verizon phone was a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, but Google got fed up with Verizon over how they mishandled the Galaxy Nexus so there aren't any new Nexus devices for Verizon.)

Overall I'm happy with T-Mobile. And it was fantastic when I recently visited Japan and my phone actually worked. It was 2G speed only, but Google Maps worked great, Google Translate worked great, messaging worked great.

There are a few spots I have visited where a Verizon phone gets good signal and a T-Mobile phone doesn't work. They are few enough that I'm glad I made the switch.

I'm not rooting for Hippie Land to emerge from the wreckage.
Americans will likely slaughter each other in righteous and god-ordained fury for many decades thereafter.

But they will have withdrawn from every corner and space on this planet - where today they distort, extract and oppress as a matter of "interests".
