Comment Kids Panic for the Next New Phone Each Year (Score 1) 103

I would expect it to be higher than 71%. However, considering how every millenial and gen-z (the biggest consumer of phones) find they can't live unless they have the next (trivial) incremental update to a phone then from a carrier perspective there is no urgency. Especially since the next phone should have the latest android release that includes the latest security patches -- the one they would use prior to filling it with their bloatware. Also, lets not forget that these largest consumers don't care much about their stolen privacy since they share it regularly on FB and other social media. There was a story where a bot could identify people with 80%+ accuracy solely by their publicly available social media posts.

Comment Money in Politics is the Real Curse (Score 1) 404

Although it's very clear Republicans are wholly owned subsidiaries of big corporations it's very clear to me the real issue is legal bribery of our politicians. It's a damn shame that most people get so easily distracted from non-issues or just simply find all this boring to care. Removing money from politics would very likely make republicans less likely to sell their votes to the highest bidders.

Comment Didn't they just yuk-yuk comment over old movies? (Score 2) 83

Please correct me if i am wrong but wasn't this thing all about some silhouette of a robot and another thing yaking it up with forced comedy commentary on old movies running in the background? Why does it cost on the high-end of tv production of $1 million per episode (or $5.5m for a full season) ? Good luck.
