DEATH fails to end mobile contract: Widow forced to take HUBBY's ASHES into shop

Nameless Faceless Computer User

Re: Untrustworthy automatic billing

Here in U.S., the cell phone company continues to bill you and ruins your credit rating while you write letters to the Public Service Commission. They in turn forward your letters back to the cell phone company who turns the matter over for collection. You are forbidden from taking them to court, by law, and your only option is to enter arbitration in front of an arbitrator who is hired by the cell phone company you are fighting with.

Resistance is futile.

Learn to replace the glass

Glass has a certain feel under my touch which plastic fails to provide. If that means I risk having to replace it, then it's a "quality of life" issue which I am ready to accept.

Creepy battery-operated TEDDY BEAR SEX TOY. Sadly, this is for real

One thing tho...

I see absolutely nothing wrong with it... except one thing. During the promotional video, the company was name dropping Disney as using the same manufacturer. Bad idea. Nobody messes with the mouse. It will get ugly. You will loose.

Google Glasses is one of the worst inventions ever conceived. It provides no useful images, scrapes away our last best hope for privacy from security cameras, traffic cameras, cell phone cameras, street view cameras, ATM cameras, nanny cameras, and dash cameras. Now let's all just record everything we see all the time. Why?

After 13 year console ban Xbox One set for official launch in China

Nameless Faceless Computer User

The Xbox One will feature, by default, an always-on, works-in-the-dark, microphone and camera that’s constantly connected to the internet and 300,000 servers. I wouldn't want in my home and it should be banned in any country.

FCC seeks $48K fine from mobile phone-jamming driver

Nameless Faceless Computer User

On the one hand, I was planning to do this myself. How many times have I looked up at someone tailgating to see the top of his head as he was distracted with typing text messages at 60mph. No matter how good of a driver you think you are, you're not that good.

In front of me, I saw a distracted driver slam right into the guard rail from the left lane. There were parts flying off his truck. He must have received a phone call.

But on the other hand, people need to work this out for themselves. If we continue to make laws which govern every aspect of our lives we will never mature as a society.

On the matter of shooting down Amazon delivery drones with shotguns

Re-branding

Typical U.S. Government mind puck. Send out a few drones to spy on people and locals use them for target practice. But, put a big, happy smiley face on it to deliver your new Kindle and suddenly drones are your friend. You wouldn't shoot at the U.P.S. driver, would you? Well, most wouldn't.

iPhone 5S: Apple, you're BORING us to DEATH (And you too, Samsung)

Nameless Faceless Computer User
Megaphone

It's just a phone

Here are features we would like to see: make a phone call. It's a phone. I certainly don't need all these bells and whistles nor look forward to more battery-draining features in every annual update of the same thing. Back in "the day" we were happy to upgrade our phones once every 3-4 years. In exchange, we received smaller phones, better battery life, perhaps a 2-line LCD display rather than 1.

What more can you cram into this thing? Samsung had the right idea - if you can't make it better, make it bigger and easier to read. Offer a model with a real keyboard. Install a microSD card for expandable memory, rather than paying hundreds of dollars for pennies worth of memory. Release the death grip over the OS to install apps from third parties.

But, they give us a fingerprint reader. Yippee.

Windows 8 apps pass 100K, Windows 8 passes Vista

Nameless Faceless Computer User
Megaphone

All nonsense numbers, since Windows 8 is mandatory, not optional with a new PC. And, since Windows 7 is so expensive, few will re-format their machines and downgrade them, like I did. None of these sales figures and app development mean anything when we all have a gun to our heads.

Obama weighs in on NSA surveillance imbroglio

Nameless Faceless Computer User
Devil

I don't know why this is such a surprise to anyone. After 9/11 attacks, Bush introduced the Patriot act which allowed telco's and isp's to snoop our communications. Under that law, consumer notification that any type of surveillance was taking place was illegal. I wrote my representative and told Hillary Clinton that I was not crazy about this. The response was this was for our own good.

Now this is news? It's not news. People are just starting to wake up that we gave up our right to privacy to feel good. This is the dilemma of a free society - snoop and be safe, respect privacy and bad guys go undetected.

It has nothing to do with Obama. This is all old news.

James Bond inspires US bill to require smart guns for all

Nameless Faceless Computer User

Re: gets my goat

I can see your frustration, as you are ignorant of the law, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. If you search Wikipedia for 'heller decision' you will educate yourself to the decision which the Supreme Court came to in 2008 which re-asserted that individuals have a right to bear arms, unrelated to the militia. English can be a rough language - oh, I forgot that you probably have difficulties with English as well.

They ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.

This is not a privilege. This is a right. It is part of the Constitution of the United States which makes it a free country. There are plenty of other countries out there which do not have such rights. If that better suits you, feel free to live elsewhere.
