Robot snaps on yellow RUBBER GLOVES, preps to invade Canada

Terminator

Damn I missed it

I frequently commute from Kingston to Toronto, if I had found this T-800 precursor along the highway I would have scooped it up and FedEx'd it to Mexico for proper disposal (pretty sure that's where Sarah Connor is hiding out).

One HUNDRED FAMOUS LADIES exposed NUDE online

I don't go near Reddit...

...but I'm pretty sure the writer made a mistake and should have wrote "4Chan.org/b". I just checked a few minutes ago and there are dozens of threads about this on both /b and /pol

Bing's the thing in Microsoft's push for cheap Windows devices

"Some of these devices, in particular tablets, will also come with Office or a one-year subscription to Office 365." So is this a feature, or a bug?

Systems meltdown plunges US immigration courts into pen-and-paper stone age

Katie Saucey

Re: Really?

"Couldn't they just go down to HomeDepot and hire a couple of Mexicans with a van?"

That's the plan. They'll also buy some pens and paper. The Mexicans will have the backlog of docs out of the way in no time. Then let the bureaucratic crawl begin anew!

Solar-powered aircraft unveiled for round-the-world flight

Katie Saucey
Boffin

Re: pendant alert!

".... or will the batteries be precharged...."

Only enough charge is added to lift off and get up to the initial 8000m or so. The reason the aircraft starts its slow descent at sunset, is due to the increased power required to keep aloft the weight of all the excess energy collected during the day. /Stephen_Fry

Samsung's thumb-achingly ENORMO Galaxy Note Pro 12.2

Katie Saucey
Meh

WTF is the point of this thing

My thoughts exactly. My Lenovo ThinkPad not only cost less, it runs win 7/linux duel boot, 500GB storage, and has about the same screen size. Granted it might be a bit heavier, and not look as cool, but on the road I can work and play. I view these an acceptable trade-offs.

Use strong passwords and install antivirus, mmkay? UK.gov pushes awareness campaign

Katie Saucey

Yeah Nanny States!

"The UK government has launched a new campaign aimed at changing attitudes to online security among consumers and small businesses, dubbed Cyber Streetwise."

Huh, being the UK and all, I figured they would have passed legislation (based on one horror story) called 'Cyber Streetwise', then prosecuted those who did not comply. That said, here in Canada things are not much better.

Foot-loving cat burglar nicks THREE THOUSAND individual socks

Katie Saucey
Happy

Thank god

For years I have had mismatched socks. I always blamed a gnome or elf (could not be my perfect hounds!) This gnome has been stalking me for years, 'You're crazy!' they all said. Now, I am vindicated and will sleep soundly for once.

The following is the offenders profile I forwarded to the authorities:

Step 1. Steal socks

Step 2. Steal panties

Step 3. ?????????

Step 4. Profit

Microsoft to RIP THE SHEETS off Windows 9 aka 'Threshold' in April

Great, so MS is bringing back those shitty widgets from Vista, but now they are asking you to pay for them. Hell might as well resurrect Clippy as well!

NSA alleges 'BIOS plot to destroy PCs'

Katie Saucey
FAIL

BIOS malware eh?

" ...developed BIOS malware “disguised as a request for a software update” that would have turned PCs into “a brick.”

Wow, this threat has been around since the first PC was ever put in the hands of your average joe. Bricking ones PC is a pretty trivial feat, all it takes is an urge to upgrade the BIOS, combined with downloading the wrong (or corrupted) image, and/or a lack of reading comprehension. It doesn't take a rogue state to wrap a 100k of garbage in a cmos flasher that looks legit. Also what good would it do to knock out a few thousand porn boxes anyway? The malware would be identified and flagged within a day.

Come on NSA, if you're going to feed us bullshit at least try! How about a story about how you stopped the evil-doers from causing a financial apocalypse? Or thwarted hackers killing the power grid? If stopping a half assed 4chanish inconvenience from going live is truly the best the NSA has to brag about, we're all fucked.

China's 'Airpocalypse' forces pilots to learn BLIND landings in smog

Katie Saucey
Facepalm

Re: Obvious question

At least they're admitting to the people they could have a small problem. Although according to CCTV, every lung-destroying-cloud-o-death has a silver lining! Here is their lists of benefits:

-It unifies the Chinese people.

-It makes China more equal.

-It raises citizen awareness of the cost of China's economic development.

-It makes people funnier.

-It makes people more knowledgeable (of things like meteorology and the English word 'haze').

Choke on that you clean air loving hippies.

Microsoft bans XXXXBOX gamers for CURSING in online combat

Katie Saucey

That's nothing

From the earliest days of the PC shooter, doom (LAN, dial-up), then quake, then HL/CounterStrike, shit talking has been an essential part of play. I regularly play/host Civ 5 games with comments that would make Stormfront guys think twice, it's part of the game to upset your opponent and gain the psychological edge. Don't even get me started on some chess.com sessions I've had.

MEDIC! Google, Oracle, Red Hat docs race to save crippled Healthcare.gov

Big Brother

WTF?

Why didn't the US government just hire one of the "big guys" in tech to begin with? I think facefail.com could have done a better job at this point (hell, they know everything their claimed 10 trillion users already). I kinda got the impression that the whole Obamacare thing might be an important issue for the citizens. Who knows what happened, but since this is Washington D.C, surely there was no favoritism, or kick backs or politics involved..right?

I miss those amusing Edon rants as well. I've almost considered resurrecting him in chatbot form. Maybe this weekend I'll modify the dictionary file for an old bot I wrote at uni. I figure it'll only take 2-3 of my MS hating friends and a case of beer to prefect it.

Every other day I see a new alarmist piece warning of the incoming tide of "cyber-bullying" and the resultant teen suicides. This will help for sure.

Re: Biologically compatible?

Pffft...Go home Greenpeace! Just joking, these were my exact thoughts as I read the article. I believe it's already well known certain military sonar can affect whales in some ways. But who knows? Maybe the whales will learn to understand the protocol and get jobs with the NSA.

'Please, steal my phone' TV ads by T-Mobile US slammed by legal eagles

I have a question for these morality crusaders.....

This is nothing. How about the rest of the casual violence/degeneracy shown on TV? Glorifying bank robbers , murders, rapists (well at lease theses guys usually die or get arrested). Nobody seems to gives a fuck about the show content, why just hack on advertisers? These "moral cops" are useless and just out for press time. Now how about Hollywood? Noooo... "let's just go after some large corp, everyone's been trained to hate them!" </rant>

'Who knew in 1984 that Steve Jobs would be Big Brother?'

Katie Saucey

"I think they should issue more details..."

I agree, but this is Apple we're talking about. The few details that will never be released are the minutes of the marketing meeting concerning this new "feature", I'll just assume it went like this:

exec_drone_1 : we need more innovation for our "new" product

exec_drone_2 : How about biometrics? I like that word....

exec_drone_1 : Hasn't been done before, and proved rather, uh, gimmicky?

exec_drone_2 : Screw it, this on a mobile device!

->files vague patent
