Ten classic electronic calculators from the 1970s and 1980s

Malcom Ryder 1

I got my first scientific calculator in 1975, it was a Texas instruments model. It was previously $75.00, but buy buying it in bulk with some other people at work, I got it for $50.00. That was when I was making $3.20 an hour.

11m Chinese engulfed by 'Airpocalypse' at 4000% of safe pollution levels

Re: And Laws of the USA/Europe are going to prevent this?

As a patriotic American I am proud to admit we are world leaders. If we implement pollution control devices , the rest of the world will follow our example. You and your fellow America haters should move to Somalia and enjoy their true Libertarian government

Apple blings up new iMac with latest Intel chips, next-gen Wi-Fi

Hows the sound?

My 2010 Imac has surprisingly good sound for internal speakers. Are the new thinner models as good sounding?

Re: they are called airplanes

To every American whining about why we don't have a high speed rail system, we have airplanes. They are faster. At any one moment in time about 60,000 Americans are in the air over the US. It is faster to fly long distances and cheaper to drive shorter ones.

Don't forget, turn on the computer, then turn on your array of hardrives, and don't touch the cables, least you cause the computer to loose its connection

US lawmaker blames bicycle breath for global warming gas

Malcom Ryder 1

That lawmaker knows that bill will never pass, he's just trying to get points from his redneck overweight pick up truck driving ditto heads. That is today's Congress, more concerned about getting out soundbites than doing any real legislation.

8 meg ram upgrade for Amiga 1200=$300.00

50 MZH 68030 upgrade card for Amiga 1200=$187.00

SCSI controller for external hard drive=$80.00

Add all that to your 1200 and it was a decent little machine, but not a cheap one

Russia: 'We'll dump the ISS into the sea after 2020'

It was reported by Fox news

Rupert Murdoch owns Fox news, that should say it all, and it was reported just days after the last shuttle landed. Just more fear mongering news manipulation from Fox

Mozilla refuses US request to ban Firefox add-on

National Security?

What exactly does streaming live sporting events have to do with national security? Remember homeland security was made in the wake of the 911 attacks. Mozilla called them out on this, good for them. No way Homeland security can actually do anything. As for all my whinny fellow Americans who are so worried about the debt, give the government some money, come on patriot, if you really loved your country you'd dig deep in your pockets. If not shut up and quit making every post into a whine about what the post isn't.

Market forces

You are right about the market forces leading the energy strategy. Players like GE and Siemens have marketing forces that are known in America as lobbyists, who are strong arming your politicians into putting big money into wind. Gotta love capitalism.

Hulu to charge $10 for past-its-prime time TV

Malcom Ryder 1

Goodbye Hulu

Hulu made sense, actually it is one of the few internet services that does(did?). How does you tube make money? How does Facebook? Hulu played videos with commercials, they made money, and I didn't have to DVR( and then skip thru the commercials). I am not going to pay for stuff I can watch for free. Hulu now has a business model as dumb as the rest of the internet crowd.

*If its good for Google, its good for America"

Type your comment here — plain text only, no HTML

Why not have a member of one of the worlds most successful internet companies in the White House? He might do something like try to bring high speed internet to all of America. The Secretary of Defense During WW2 also happened to be the head of GM, he created America's Highway system. Yes it was good for GM but it was also good for America.

Mix rip and burn

"And you don't rip DVDs. You buy them via iTunes. Do you seriously think (insert name of any computer manufacturer that wants to stay in business) will launch a product and say 'Yeah! It's great for pirating movies - just drag and drop'?"

Don't you remember the"rip mix and burn" commercials Apple ran around 2001?

FCC talks National Broadband

Malcom Ryder 1

Public safety

TV and radio are already required to broadcast emergency warnings, and indeed if you are experiencing bad weather, isn't the first thing you'd do is turn on the TV? A system that works, that costs the government very little, that makes sense, is going to be replaced with an expensive one so you can get tornado warnings on your iphone. This FCC guy is clearly in the pockets of the telcos.

Cell phone companies create a study that favors the cell phone companies

This is an incredibly biased report, as it was financed by the cell phone companies. Proper journalism would at least ask the broadcast industry what they think about it.

Google and Microsoft bombard Brussels over ad tracking

Malcom Ryder 1

Who pays attention to internet ads?

Let Google and MS track me and my web habits all they want. Let them know how I spend every penny. After they have compiled their data and presented it to the merchants of the world, who can then cross reference and analyze it. Once the merchants of the world realize I don't pay attention to internet ads Google and MS can finally go broke.
