Snowden to warn Brits on Xmas telly: Your children will NEVER have privacy

Serge 2

To: Matt Bryant

You either are a troll or a complete idiot.

Quick look through your post history reveals that you mostly get down-voted on your comments, yet you just keep talking. The things that you have said before (not just here) reek with ignorance of an overwhelming proportion and mostly lack intelligence. You have been mostly down-voted in your comments since as far back as 2008.

Do us all a favour, since your comments aren't contributing much, please just shut up mate.

Top 10 Steve Ballmer quotes: '%#&@!!' and so much more

Serge 2

The guy's an idiot, just like most of CEOs of big players. I wonder what keeps them alive, what is that group of heroes in the shadows? Who are they?

Bolivian president's jet grounded so officials can look for Snowden

Serge 2

You see, Bolivia does not have ICBM's, or significant amount of navy, army or airforce and does not have strong economic influence. Thats exactly why. I would love to see anyone grounding mr Putins plane for any reason but his own safety under his recommendations.

Galaxy S4 way faster than iPhone 5: Which?

Serge 2

Re: What use is speed...

in all three cases. With the only exception is Cyanogen (or similar) modded Android devices, only perhaps.

Serge 2

Such tests carry very little informative value. The most important set of benchmarks on any phone should be: how responsive its user interface; how user friendly it is; how secure is the device; how long does the battery last under full load; screen brightness and resolution, and perhaps now it is how good is the lens, sensor and firmware on the camera module.

Hardware performance benchmark otherwise has very little to offer unfortunately. Bottom line, your phone is not your desktop or laptop and you will not be doing some heavy duty number crunching on it, hence is fecking useless.

I am not Apple or Android fan but from having used them both iPhone beats any and Android device hands down. (Bring doen the down votes)

YES, Xbox One DOES need internet, DOES restrict game trading

How it works today

Forget about customer is always right. Today its more like the shareholder or the investor is always right. Today customers are ten a penny but investrs are a lot harder to find. The focus today is how to keep them happy and well lets face it, who cares about end user.

For a manufacturer the chain of parasitic feeders is so large that they never meerlt the end user face to face. Such is the perils of making money out of thin air and imaginative value added by publishing houses and distribution cartels. So piss and shit on little guys we are but a money cows.

Fuck off Xbox 1, PS4 and the like. For now I will use my 360 until it dies. Then I will look forward to Steam hopefully releasing their own console. (I hope it would one day happen)

Ed Miliband brands Google's UK tax avoidance 'WRONG'

Re: Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-!

Simply tax every god damn word that comes out of thier mouths and fine them if its not implemented within a reasonable time frame.

Yahoo! tries! to! tempt! TV! crowd! with! tiny! dick!

The sinking ship...

Wonder if Marisa will stay with the ship till the end or will she cowardly jump on to the next gravy train for incompetent leaders. Twitter or Facebook preferably.

Apple loses again in Chinese App Store copyright case

Serge 2

What a twist...

Chinese recognise a copyright system? A nation of counterfeiters? Hypocrisy and double standards all around for everyone.

Ubuntu 13.04: No privacy controls as promised, but hey - photo search!

Oh Linux...

The software that was and always will remain in a beta stage... There. I said it!

Make cool shows, make money: Netflix's SHOCKING TV strategy

Thumb Up

Standard TV Sucks

The days of standard tv is coming to an inevitable end. The service just doesnt make sense. Its ridden with ads and even pvr wont save it. It just makes a whole a lot more sense to watch what you want and when you want. We are entering the realm of 'universe revolves around me' and thats how it should be when it comes to my own personal time and money.

German watchdog whacks Google with PIDDLING FINE over Street View slurp

Serge 2

That fine should have a few more zeros and be across whole Europe. Then on to credit rating cretins.

Yahoo! Axes! Yet! More! Products!

Serge 2

This is what happens when...

You overestimate ones abilities Marisa is a joke, a PR stunt by Yahoo! to show how different and cool they are. Unfortunately for them her abilities are very limited. She has turned Yahoo in to bread and circus according to my friend who has worked there for some years now and have seen a few ceo's. There is a good word for people like her: a lucky chancer, was at the right place at the right time and perhaps complained enough to be pushed up Google ladder and then left. Perfecr example that investors have no bloody idea. I can not wait to see her fail.

Hold on! Degrees for all doesn't mean great jobs for all, say profs

Serge 2

A proper engineer can...

Do almost any other job and can do it well. However its not so easy vise versa if at all possible. A solid science or a hard engineering degree teaches you set of invaluable skills that is no match to any other subject. Engineer can be a lawyer, politician, financier, entrepreneur etc. No business degree graduate can do a control or electronic engineer job. So yeah. I agree that social sciences are a breeding ground for environment pseudo scientists and pseudo researchers. When it comes to politics, unless you have a solid engineering or a hard science degree, the door for you should be well shut. Best you can be is a secretary. Look at what bunch of incapable lawyers that our government is done to this country. Stop this niceness with socially conscience sugar coating of peoples feelings.

Bring on the downvotes!

Facebook skins Android with Facebook Home

Serge 2

I just want to say that I dislike Facebook and everything that comes out of it. More so, I think that social networks are for narcissistic, egoistic and pretty low intelect folk who has nothing worth while to say or share with the rest of us.

Chinese Army: US hacks us so much, I'm amazed you can read this

Serge 2

But Really...

What is the point in this hacking? No seriously? What is it going to aachieve? Its a bit like Anon deficating on some website. What is the damage? Its a bit like kids doing graffiti and then the other bunch paints over and they get all upset and worked up about it.

What kind of a millitary organisation has its main system physically connected to the same same network as their web servers? Why is their system online anyway? For what purpose? Generals can do battle plans from home? No really?

Please let this be not how I imagine it it is... This is just too depressing to think that the millitary are so god damn stupid.

RIAA: Google failing on anti-piracy push

F*ck You RIAA

Wind now cheaper than coal in Oz: Bloomberg

Everyone should go nuclear unless there are plenty of hydro resources or maybe, just maybe solar.

Nuclear to energy industry is what air travel in the transport industry. Safest yet people are have unjustified fears...

One day intelligence will win... I hope...

British games company says it owns the idea of space marines

Isn't it is about the time

Games Workshop has had the taste slapped out of its mouth?

They have become a bunch of greedy scum bags and nothing more.

Swartz suicide won't change computer crime policy, says prosecutor

The witch hunt

Does this at all remind you of the witch hunt and prosecution of the heretics by the church? History tends to repeat itself.

This is typical of humanity to hunt those with greater knowledge of things that average pleb is incapable of comprehending. Sentences driven by fear and not logic. There will come a day when we will look back and feel the shame of sheer ignorance and stupidity of our rulling class. The anger that we allowed to be ruled by such pathetic, power hungry and corrupt politicians.

I am in some ways ashamed to be part of this so called intelligent race...

Web firms drool as ballgazer spies $11bn mobile ad spend in 2013

Serge 2

I really do not know anyone who has found any of those adds useful or informative. I also do not know anyone who has willingly clicked on any of those adds apart from by mistake when it prerended to be a button or whatever (guess that works with less cimouter litterate folk).

Where is this imaginary and astronomical figures for ad revenue come from. I would love to see the real value figure that trully represents the global add market. Its all a pack of lies that ad companies feed to gullible business executives. I would seriously question sanity of my manager if he was to propose such ponzy scheme to me.

I do however appreciate search related non intrusive suggestions, but otherwise it is all but pest. Eye cancer and nothing more.

Foxconn calls in the cops over supplier bribes claims

Serge 2

Shocking... Absolutely Shocking!

Taiwanese company operating in China taking bribes?!

Nothing new here then.

You have got to admire the moral outcry of the hypocrisy though.

At last: The brain-controlled helicopter

Serge 2

Meh.... Nothing to see here...

I have this EEG device on my desk right now. The only useful thing it can do is to measure overall brain activity reasonably ok, I.e. alert and relaxed. So the only thing you can successfully and repeatably do is to switch between the above mentioned states by focusing on a particular thought, or closing your eyes, which will almost automatically force you in to low activity mental state . Glorified toggle switch... Meh...
