Comment I don't get it (Score 3, Insightful) 78

I don't even expect the New York Times or the editors/journalists that work for it to be ethical, why in the world would I be expected to be outraged that a website I've never heard of has unethical editors/journalists working for it? Is anyone seriously surprised by this? What is the news story?

This is google we are talking about. I'm sure they have tons of data about what people were actually watching while monopolizing the devices. My guess is there data shows that it was not pussycat videos that were being watched.

Comment Re:Before the reboot (Score 3, Interesting) 204

I'm the opposite. I watched some episodes from each of the Star Trek TV series and I think I saw most of the movies, but it never really caught my fancy. But I've _really_ enjoyed the rebooted Star Trek movies. Speaking to other I've found that most Trekkies really don't like the Star Trek reboot, while those who were not Trekkies before like the rebooted movies. Maybe that indicates the rebooted movies aren't "real" Star Trek. I don't really know since I've never been a Trekkie ;-)

Comment Re:Stop chasing the shiny (Score 1) 161

I agree in principle, but my work pays for my phone and lets me upgrade every 12 months so I take advantage of it even when my "old" phone is perfectly serviceable. However if I was having to pay out of my own pocket I'd probably never have a smartphone to begin with ;-) People are shocked to learn that my wife does not have a phone, but we simply aren't willing to pay the exorbitant prices (either for the phones or for the data plans). Shockingly it turns out to be perfectly possible to survive in this world without a cell phone.
