Re: no more russians in CS:GO?

i guess its from all the brainwashing about how they "saved" world from evil nazis, despite replacing nazis with equally terrible regime.

DeeCee

Re: no more russians in CS:GO?

russians take it to the next level, same with their tourists.

on the + side they arent as oversensitive snowflakes as many westerners

DeeCee

no more russians in CS:GO?

i hope it will reduce number of russians in cs:go, the % of cheaters, rude a**holes and screaming kids is just too damn high. Though is fun hearing our local russian swearing on discord about having to play with russians. Hopefully there wont be more of BDO bs where EU countries are locked to russian servers instead of western.

Re: Observation.

i often want to rip off peoples heads and shit down their necks, but that is more connected to working with clients/stupid people, watching news and traffic, not my taste of music

Long phone is loooong: Sony swipes at flagship fatigue with 21:9 tall boy

if i was in the market for a new phone this would seem a nice option among those awful notches and holes in screens

Germany tells America to verpissen off over Huawei 5G cyber-Sicherheitsbedenken

DeeCee

Even if they dont do it now..

Even if they dont do it now that gear puts us under the risk of them adding the functionality in future patches, US is generally our ally(at least when its not led by a hairy poo filled orange) so even if it is bad, its not AS bad. sucks that EU is busy with stupid stuff and doesnt take initiative on anything, we(EU not individual countries) should do South Korea and support our companies

You think election meddling is bad now? Buckle up for 2020, US intel chief tells Congress

DeeCee

they" as people living in U.S.(and Kremlin), as im living in neither of those places and cant vote in U.S. elections its "they" . though it was electoral college(why something so archaic exists is beyond me, how it can be called "democracy" when person with least votes win) that put him in place, because more people voted for the second worst choice.

DeeCee

" try to weaken democratic institutions, undermine US alliances and partnerships"

isnt that what they elected Trump for?

Should the super-rich pay 70% tax rate above $10m? Here's Michael Dell's hot take for Davos

DeeCee

70% on above 10mil, 90% on income about 100mil, else there will be a lot of problems. already top few people have more money than bottom 50%, it will go to top few having more than poorest 80~90% in no time if this is allowed to continue, because money makes more money

Looming EU copyright rules – tackling Google news article scraping, installing upload filters – under fire from all sides

DeeCee

Re: ....unless they can prove its not copyrighted

IMO it should be similarly as pension in systems where your spouse get it after you die. your descendants had as much to do with creation of copyrighted material as i, you can use money you get from copyrights to leave it to them, just as people who do paid work. else it puts people who work on worse standing than copyright owners, because results of their work cant be passed on indefinitely. there should be balance between compensating people who create with fairness and public interest. one persons grandmother was engineer and made some roads, he gets nothing for, others grandmother wrote a book, and he gets paid for it, how is it fair and makes sense?

DeeCee

Re: Damages

1)make a book with some gibberish

2)get somebody to upload it

3)generate a bunch of views

4)profit

doesnt even need ??????? step. considering how widespread this problem is with ads it would be same, wouldnt even put beyond big copyright holders to do it considering how much they abuse the system as is.

DeeCee

....unless they can prove its not copyrighted

"No one wants companies to block everything unless they can prove its not copyrighted because that would remove one of the great things about the internet"

that is exactly what those big movie/music etc. companies want. whole copyright system is bs... why somebody who has been dead for ages still have copyright. copyright should care for artist during his life(and, maybe, relatives for some time after) not immortal(and immoral) companies. its same with patents.

Googlers to flood social media with tales of harassment in bid to end forced arbitration

DeeCee

it does exist, but there is a difference between real actions and "i didnt like the way he looked at me", or "i dont like him so i report him", there is one great comic about different reaction of same action based on guys looks. there are women complaining about somebody touching their butt in a party in 1973. a gay once touched my butt 10 years ago, should i go complain now? i took it as a compliment and moved on.

the issue with these things is that men(because there are completely different rules for when women do it) are made guilty before trial or having a chance to defend themselves ruining careers.

DeeCee

before rise of modern "feminism" and pound-metoo id support this, at this point "feminists" have degraded everything about sexual harassment so much that its often just ways to extort money instead of actual harassment.

Cops told: No, you can't have a warrant to force a big bunch of people to unlock their phones by fingerprint, face scans

DeeCee

search was too wide, but my comment was about password(and, in this case, fingerprint) counting as testifying against himself instead of being just a key to open something.

"Where in the past judges have drawn a distinction between forcing a person to reveal a known password and the act of applying a person's finger to a sensor, Judge Westmore sees no difference in this instance. "In this context, biometric features serve the same purpose of a passcode, which is to secure the owner's content, pragmatically rendering them functionally equivalent," she wrote."

DeeCee

why it is so bad if a suspect is forced to unlock their device with a warrant? whats next you wont open your safe, house/car door because of that?

digital documents should be viewed as physical, if there is a reasonable way to do it and working safety mechanisms to protect from abuse then there should be ways for law enforcement to search devices.

Attention all British .eu owners: Buy dotcom domains and prepare to sue, says UK govt

Forget 2019's tech biz takeovers, here's the mega-merger everyone's talking about: Milky Way and LMC, coming soon

DeeCee

now we just have to hope that bugs like ageing and sickness will be fixed in our lifetimes and well get to see it

EU politely asks if China could stop snaffling IP as precondition for doing business

DeeCee

so they took their IP to China knowing China WILL steal it(it was written in chinese law) just to exploit lower workers rights/pay and environmental standards, and now they complain?

and why the hell western governments dont respond in kind against chinese companies?

A few reasons why cops haven't immediately shot down London Gatwick airport drone menace

DeeCee

its easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission, shoot it now, then, if anybody protests make some excuses, it was black and threatening or smth, consult US cops for ideas

Home users due for a battering with Microsoft 365 subscription stick

DeeCee

why not bundle windows + office 365 for some 10eur a month? if they dont plan on releasing new windows they need to make money somehow, alternatives are:

1)mass selling user information(yes they slurp, but afaik its more like apple instead of google/facebook like)

2)losing money on their home products to get people hooked on them and get money from enterprise

3)draconian reinstall policies

4)try to go apple way but i doubt they can pull it off

people are used to subscriptions now, i prefer subscription over walled garden of apple and being the product with google

Do not adjust your set: Hats off to Apple, you struggle to shift iPhones 'cos you're oddly ethical

DeeCee

Long term support and googles slurping are reasons i bought 8 plus, at this point phones are on same level as pcs in terms of not needing to buy a new one every year like it was 15 years ago. I dont like apple but there are some things they do right, still sad about windows phone, was best of both worlds, if microsoft just fully committed and put their weight behind apps

then again my backup phone is samsung galaxy mini from 2011, even used it for a time last year after my nokia lumia died

YouTube fight gets dirty: Kids urged to pester parents over Article 13

DeeCee

considering how companies abuse takedowns to fight opinions they dont like and bad reviews article 13 isnt a good idea

Reverse Ferret! Forget what we told you – the iPad isn't really for work

DeeCee

agree, now dex/continuum stuff could replace workstations quite soon, at least for most people, hardware is powerful enough and just needs 2 good monitors, a keyboard and a mouse

cooling like on one of those gaming phones that are made for external cooling addon, along with dex with cooling solution will probably be the future, wont be surprised if some monitors/dex like things will come with external gpus soon

Tata on trial: Outsourcer 'discriminated' against non-Asian workers, claim American staff

meanwhile

i have 250Mb/s with 50Mb/s guaranteed for some 25 eur a month with interactive TV included, and downtimes are once a year or smth. and this is one of more premium priced options in a private home, could get 400Mb/s for 30 eur.

Engineers, coders – it's down to you to prevent AI being weaponised

Militarized AI is the new nukes, as long as one country has them(like China or russia) other countries need them

Militarized AI could be one of Great Filters, just like nukes

I predict a riot: Amazon UK chief foresees 'civil unrest' for no-deal Brexit

DeeCee

hope to see you back in EU with same rules like everybody else in a few years, when stupid old people have died out a bit, liked some of your online stores, stuff managed to come here faster than from Germany(and stuff from Germany still ships faster than stuff from local stores). And you use language people can understand, unlike germans or french

Re: Idiots

if idiots governing and living in EU wouldnt be so stupid and busy with their little squabbles they would realize that EU could rival US and China

its nice that Britain has been so nice and free of tyrants over the history

DeeCee

Your could always join EU

Your could always join EU - Doubt we said no and it would be on same terms as other countries without special treatment like now

My PC makes ‘negative energy waves’, said user, then demanded fix

DeeCee

I had to change windows default lock screen(the shore cave one) because the dark part had bad energy and it had water in it, and pictures of water have "energy" that doesnt mix with electronic devices and cause them to fail
