Also, I might as well get this out of my system a day early, as to not appear insensitive...

totally appropriate

Only in your reality is that not insensitive 364 days a year. I guess the only way you will ever realize that is if it is your child or wife or husband jumping out of a building 100 stories up to avoid being burned to death first.
Heh. Called out by ledhed. You must have really stepped over the line.

iPhones, or to be more precise, Apple products are for people who want their shit to just work. You want to tinker with it, have some control over it? Look elsewhere. Truth of the matter is that if you are the least bit tech savy, and have the inclination to tinker with your hardware and software, you can buy a better product for half the price. Gone are the days when Apple was the only game in town if you wanted a decent smartphone or a good workstation computer.
LOL @ "they just work."
My daughter wanted an Apple so she could face time with her friends.
It has been one issue after another and not easy to fix due to the way ut is set up and locked down.
"Dad why does the phone lose half it's power overnight when noone was using it? "
"Dad how do I get this interview off my phone? It's too big to email."
" Dad how do I copy my mp3s to my phone?" "ITunes " " I hate iTunes! Can't i just copy them?"
"Dad why is my iPhone overheating even though nothing is open?"
"Dad why won't my iPhone connect to wifi? My galtab connects fine."
At least getting her photos off is pretty straightforward.

I did not weigh in on my opinion of Microsoft or the App Store for Windows. Whether or not his points are valid, his approach is toxic and the overwhelming majority of his post history follows that same trend.

You can have a debate without being an abrasive, toxic, nerd raging asshole. They're not mutually exclusive.

I am calling this out not because I care about Microsoft, but because Bluesnews is a fantastic site with a few rotten apples that drag the comment threads down. Hold yourselves to higher standard.

Unfortunately you picked the thread, topic, and comment where his style is appropriate. Calling him out on threads where it isn't will engender greater success.

I executed my plan in 2007... cord cut.

Every year I say I am going to do this...and every year Comcast gives me another "one year bundle" that somehow manages to be only slightly more expensive than getting my content through entirely Internet means. I like the Comcast DVR and On-Demand features/systems so the minimal expense seems very much worth it. More importantly, my wife demands that whatever we do it is really simple to use. Remote control simple. One of these years Comcast will make an offer that is too high and my wife will be willing to deal with added complexity to save the money....but as long as that bundle basically caters to folks who prioritize convenience nearly as highly as the content itself, I am not sure it's going to happen in this household.

Keeps you below the (completely arbitrary and unnecessary) data cap too.

Your entire post history is angry nerd rage wharrgarbl. You lost credibility years ago and most people here pity you.

Although I'm not a big fan of CJ's posting style most of the time, this is one case where his nerd rage not only fits, but is appropriate to the topic. I got a few good chuckles from his post, and totally agree. Fck MS for their GFWL bullshit.

Happy Birthday, Star Trek! If only you weren't being used by CBS in a retarded attempt to draw interest to their BS online service.

Pretty much that, exactly. Fuck cbs...


Wow, so there's no confidence at all that this will be any good?

It could be the greatest Star Trek show of all time, but I'll be well and truly fucked before I'm going to pay whatever they charge for a streaming service that gives me more ads than an actual fucking tv show would.

So the odds of me ever getting to see it are basically zero.


Wow, I just assumed no ads, a la Netflix and Amazon Prime. Although it looks like they'll be offering an ad-free version for $10, the same as Netflix.

That's crazy. Make your ad version free, and let people pay $5 per month for the ad-free one. There's no way they're going to get any takers at $10/month. They just don't have the content.

So the ideal TV specs:
- OLED
- 4K resolution
- 120Hz refresh
- 12-bit color
- HDR

?

5300 people is about 2% of their 250K workforce. That's a lot of people engaging in fraud. Seems impossible that should have manifested organically like that.

The $100M fine they got is about 1.5 days worth of profit for WF. They made $23B in 2015. That's like you getting a speeding ticket.

Will any of the sales people be charged with identity theft?

Can execs be charged under RICO statutes?

Can victims bring civil suits? That might be able to hit them in the pocketbook.

Why are banks engaging in sales anyway? Every time financial institutions act like retail outlets we end up with a major financial crisis: housing & loans back in the 80s, 2007 recession, etc.

Creepy Clown Reports Continue, and Clowns Are Not Happy.

He said professional clowns work hard to protect their image as being “family friendly.”

Meanwhile artists work hard to make clowns creepy, and serial killers and pedos use them to get close to victims.

A shooting just happened in my hometown at the high school, Go Murica! More guns are the answer.

Edit Update: Female perp shot one person in the lower extremities, that person is in the hospital. Perp died from a self inflicted gunshot.
My guess is a crime of passion. Ain't nothing more volatile than hormones and firearms.

Obviously the solution is moar gunz. If only the victim had been armed, none of this would have happened. The NRA told me so.

Also, the second amendment says "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." And yet I can't get a LAW or MANPADS, which I might need some day for home defense. I'm going to take this all the way to the SCOTUS.
