Comment Re:Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (Score 1) 41

The hyphenation in Berners-Lee is a linguistic device, whereas Wasserman-Schultz is statement of Womyn's Liberation.

And he outs himself as a troll from /pol after all. Another Matt Forney/RooshV wannabe.

In case you don't know who that is, Matt Forney is a "men's rights activist" and all-around scumbag. Here's a photo, in case you're wondering why he's a man-going-his-own-way (MGTOW):

And RooshV is a guy who lives with his mom and writes pick-up guides about smashing puss. He believes rape should be legal, and has never been with a woman that he didn't pay for.

So the rest of you: the next time you see an AC trolling here, don't get upset wondering where all the messed up "nerds" have come from. These ACs calling people "nigger" and "kike" are just greasy scumbags who got lost on their way from the /pol sewers to Stormfront.

Comment Re:Headphone Jack is Pretty Crappy (Score 1) 461

I vehemently disagree about the praise for the 3.5mm headphone jack. The same problems it had in the '80s are still with us today.

The problem has always been, like every connector ever devised by humankind, "Good ones are good and cheap ones suck". I've got a Sangean portable radio that I've had at least 20 years, and I've never had sound cut out or had to mess with moving the plug around to get it to work. My Gen One iPod still works fine. My old brown Zune 30gig with the mechanical drive inside has never had any problem with the headphone jack, and I've plugged and unplugged my phones tens of times a day.

I've thrown away a bunch of clever little low-cost devices where the headphone jack is just shit.

You really think that USB-C isn't going to have the exact same problems? I've got an ASUS tablet over here that I use to read out on the back porch and I've got to do all sorts of jiggery-pokery to get the thing to charge because the USB-mini (or micro, I can't remember which is which) jack has gotten looser than the Octomom's hoohah. All jacks go bum. I don't care if it's Thunderbolt or USB or firewire or eSATA or whatever.

content creators

If you want me to care about "content creators", you're going to have to call them something other than "content creators". I find that appellation irritating in the extreme. It says absolutely nothing about what they've done to deserve my money.

I mean, I work very hard on adding value to Slashdot with my shitty comments, so I am also a "content creator". So pay me my money, motherfucker. GIVE ME MY GODDAMN MONEY.
