Comment How about listening while Charging? (Score 1) 311

Apple: Oh you'll need some battery powered headphone to do that, we just happen to sell some.

Me: Screw you, I don't want to own some shitty Bluetooth headphones. Ever. I just don't like em.

First person who tells me I need to re-buy hundreds and hundreds of dollars in headphones I currently own just because of this one huge stupid flaw gets a kick in the ass. This is such a stupid reason for me to have to buy an Android phone instead of an iPhone.

Do people not know about this extension? Nothing better than sucking 20 tabs into a nice group you can label and get back to later. It's the only thing that makes the bloated chrome useable.

Btw side note why isn't Chrome blazing fast at this point? I mean so fast you can't believe the pages loads before you noticed? Is all the code really that far abstracted from the metal? Shouldn't it be leak proof and ultra low memory no matter how badly behaved a webpage is? Can't a company worth half a Trillion dollars make a better browser?

It didn't catch it for me. As posted you really to make sure and keep GWX updated and I assume use Monitor mode which I hadn't turned on yet. Not sure if it would have known to stop that latest update.

I just happened to see there was an update, normally don't look at them since GWX was installed, and saw that fucking turd of an update trying to force it's way on to my HTPC. Would have been a real problem for me.

This is Comcast we are talking about. I'm sure watching the video counts towards your data cap.

Today I got a flyer for Comcast w/DVR for $89 month. Great! Right?

Actually let's see what the real price is. $89 base fee+$5 Broadcast TV Fee+$3 Regional Sports Free+$10 HD Technology Fee(what? you thought HD was included?)+$10 Cable Modem Free+Other taxes and fees. So really that $89 is actually $120 month plus tax. And after 1yr it's $130 month plus tax.

Comcast, "we charge 40-50% above our teaser rates because we can".

You can delete this off your site right now. The Wired ISP's don't need any more ammo in their campaign to get rid of all Wired internet and force everyone onto shitty small capped LTE connections.

Price, Speed, Caps, we are a long way from Wireless being able to take over for Wired for the majority of Americans.

I keep saying this every year but why the hell aren't we paying $19 a month for Gb unlimited internet connections for everyone American at this point? This needs to be one of those Kennedy moments where a speech is given and we make it a priority to make this happen for all Americans within 5 years. Plenty of unemployed/underemployed Americans would jump on the opportunity to help build out our infrastructure.

Or don't. If you don't know that 85% of Android devices won't ever get proper security/platform updates due to Phone/Tablet OEMs being completely clueless regarding security then go back to sleep. Phone companies just want to concentrate on billing you as much as possible per GB and Tablet OEMs? Don't get me started on the glut of crappy Android tablets that have been rushed out the door over the years.

A total disservice to a solid OS.

Comment A fun book to read is Command and Control (Score 2, Informative) 289

A fun history of one particularly disturbing incident where a single dropped tool almost caused a huge explosion and also some other fun anecdotes as well. When you think about how true the phrase "to err is human" is, you have wonder why they ever thought building these WMDs was ever a good idea in the first place. Scary stuff.
