Comment Thin sucks (Score 4, Insightful) 58

I'm sitting here looking at my nice Nexus 5x phone, that has a perfectly good 3.5mm jack on it. If I lose my earbuds, I can walk into most any store and buy absolutely adequate replacements for $10 or less. The Nexus 5 is already so thin that it felt funny in my hand and I had to buy a case for it that makes it thicker.

You think USB-C headphones that "will feature special multi-function processing units (MPUs)" are ever going to be $10?

How is it that someone working in a sweatshop is exploiting them?

Let's ask the dictionary, shall we?

Exploitation: the action or fact of treating someone unfairly in order to benefit from their work.
"the exploitation of migrant workers"
synonyms: taking advantage, abuse, misuse, ill-treatment, unfair treatment, oppression
"the exploitation of the poor"

We are busy importing hundreds of thousands of unscreened people from areas where measles still runs rampant. This little blip will not last.

And don't forget: Three of the four presidential candidates are anti-vaxxers.

Governmental scientific inquiry is a contradiction in terms.

Funny how most of the most egregious examples of biased science have come from corporate research. Even to the point where it has cost a lot of people their lives. But you already knew that and were just hoping your comment would slip under the radar.

Its great that you know the right way to do it and everyone else who wants to deviate is wrong.

"Knowing the right way to do it" is something beginners learn.

If you want numerical validation for your physical activity, then maybe cross-fit would be more appropriate than a serious discipline like jiu-jitsu. I guess it's just something you'd know if you'd ever seriously studied martial arts. It's qualitative, not quantitative.
