Comment Re:Rotten Tomatoes is getting self-important (Score 5, Funny) 360

Bateman vs super man was a mediocre movie at best.

I would pay good money to see Jason Bateman versus Superman. Should there be an Arrested Development tie-in?

If they had done a Bateman movie alone with Ben affalac

I didn't know the duck's name was Ben. But if AFLAC reconciled with Gilbert Gottfried and got him to do the voice, I would be waiting in line to see that one as well.

Thank you for your extensive research. Now, eat a dick, you insufferable prick, because what you are talking about is the DMCA written by Republicans and Democrats, signed by a Democrat. Now, provide the name of the bill in which this was somehow changed-- because I can't find it anywhere. It seems like the DMCA is the problem.

I'm not aware of people saying "gee, I really don't want that nine-to-five job, I want to be an uberer/fiverr/lyfter". They* are taking those jobs because they don't have anywhere else to go

Yeah, like he said. It's supplemental income. That doesn't mean they only work it because they have no job. You know that there are more than 40 hours in a week, right? Sometimes people are willing to forgo partying or gaming for a few hours each week in order to make some more cash.

"Self-reliance" does not mean working yourself to death for peanuts. Oh, are we going to have the government step in, because you're too stupid to keep a reasonable work/life balance and negotiate fair compensation? Ultimately, you're going to want to progress from the tier of self-employment to owning your own business, because in the long term owning your own job means having no paid vacation or sick days. But self-employment is often the next step on getting out of the employment scam. You know the one: the claim that if you can just get a college degree, you'll get a safe, secure job and work until your comfortable retirement. Millennials, if anyone, should know this is hasn't been true for their entire lifetime. And government isn't going to get one for you, either.

How on *earth* did your school manage to install a large panel costing tens of thousands that can generate as little as 45W??? Can you provide more details? Cos this sounds pretty dubious. What time of day? How old is the installation? What was its rated generative capacity? Where is the school?

I mean, a typical home installation generates 3kW, and costs well under 10k.

There is no Federal law regarding repair requirements for automobiles or tractors. The only relevant law is one passed in 1990 that required computer monitoring of emissions and, in turn, required that independent shops be able to access the data.

Both major parties have had control at various times, and neither of them was able to get such a law passed. You have been deceived into becoming a loyal low-information Democratic voter.

How is it Apple's fault that Southwest Airlines haven't released an iPad-specific version of their app? It's also very clear why Southwest haven't done so: the vast majority of the use case that they're addressing are travellers moving to and through airports, who are much, much more likely to access the app on their iphones than on an ipad.

There's plenty of business-focused apps that are optimised for iPad because that's what their target market will be using. But they're very vertical-specific, by and large. If you're a dentist who does implants, 3Diemme's solution is excellent: http://www.3diemme.it/en/produ... If you're a pilot, you are very likely to be using an electronic flight bag (developed in-house, mainly). That's where the value is for business.

AR with what? Phones? Maybe. Their desktops? Please. The GPUs in their desktops are garbage. Even the ones in the Mac Pros. I was a Mac user for ten years (sold my 2012 Mac Pro last month) and I I have always been disappointed by their choice of graphics chips.
