Comment Re:Assange lacks integrity. (Score 1) 503

Pray ask Gates/... directly how they reconcile the fact that the indiscriminate nature of Mannings collection and release of information were indisputably harmful and the the claimed absence of damage from them.

That one answers itself: they can't point to any actual damage, but anything that exposes US war criminals is bad, m'kay?

Comment What DVR are are you using? (Score 1) 141

And between "you cannot tape this show" and "you cannot fast forward through this part", the whole DVR has become obsolete for most applications unless you know how to remove that bullshit from the equation.

I haven't run into a commercial yet that my Tivo can't fast forward through. I can't be bothered with services like Sling that won't let you skip commercials. Just not worth the money to waste my life watching ads.

Comment There will be commercials (probably) (Score 3, Interesting) 141

Netflix's boom in subscribers is a sign that the world is accepting internet TV, meaning without commercials and on-demand, said CEO Reed Hastings

Yeah we've seen the "no commercials" promise before when cable TV was becoming a thing and it was bullshit then too. They'll only stay away from commercials long enough to get a subscriber base. Commercials are where most of the money is and it will be hard for them to ignore that fact. I have a hard time imagining Netflix being immune to the siren's call of that much cash forever.

When the construction dust clears, we will see a nuclear China with about 20% renewables.

Um... You do realize that China's plan before Fukushima was to reach about 15% nuclear, and those plans have been massively scaled back from 240GW to about 80GW maximum since 2011? All new approvals have been on hold since 2014.

Nuclear in China will be about 5% of total capacity by 2050, assuming it doesn't get scaled back even more.
