Comment Re: So MS is basically bailing on the phone busine (Score 0) 162

Yes, I am on occasion forced to use MS garbage and I just laugh my ass off every time I do. It's so insanely primitive compared to it's competitors, and buggy as hell to boot. The sheer # of bugs I uncover after just 5 minutes of Windows use is fucking hilarious. Don't even get me started on the shitfest that is Azure, Amazon doesn't even give 2 shits about Azure because it is such a buggy, unreliable mess. Randomly rebooting my web service? Pure brilliance MS, how did you know I wanted that "feature".

C# is also a muddled mess of a programming language, grow up and use a real language that is supported by open standards and doesn't constantly contradict itself.

Comment So MS is basically bailing on the phone business? (Score 3, Interesting) 162

What a shock, MS is bailing on the phone business, i.e. an industry where their bully monopolistic practices were useless and they had to rely on their shitty, shitty code, interface, and business practices to compete with competitors who actually know how to make software that isn't a steaming pile of shit. Shocking! But of course, MS won't reverse course on developing shitty bug-ridden software, they have trademarks to protect after all.

Comment Next up Kansas shooter's phone? (Score 0) 457

So next will the FBI be investigating the Kansas workplace shooter's phone? Or does the FBI only give 2 shits about workplace shootings when it involves teh Muzlimz.

Ordinary (Christian) Americans shooting up their workplace? Why that's just plain patriotism and 2nd amendment celebrations!

I'm always amazed by the consumer who thinks that he can demand production and enjoy the benefits of other people's capital.

I'm always amazed that people think their "capital" has any sort of meaning unless the mass of society can benefit from it. Guess what, the only thing preventing the masses from stringing you up and taking your capital is the basic social contract that allows you to get rich as long as standards for the masses don't fall too far. You violate that social contract no amount of funny money or gold bars or factories is going to save your head from getting blown off as the police officers and military you depend on to live find it expedient to slay you.

I must be missing something. Iraq got invaded for far less, and it was later shown they didn't actually have shit.

That's precisely the reason they are developing weapons. Dubya's "War to Avenge Daddy" showed dictators that if they cooperate and disarm, then they are going to end up like Saddam did, dead. Of the "axis of evil" countries, Iraq had by far the weakest military and the fewest weapons, and guess which one got invaded? The man child has fucked up the world for generations to come, and any dipshit who voted for him and supported his attempts to play army man have to take responsibility for the current situation in the middle east and North Korea.
