'Attitudes to robot sex will change'

Dogface

Women seem almost proud of their Rampant Rabbits, like its a feminist strike for freedom to get off from an electric cock. Yet when there is talk of men using robots, suddenly its all sad and seedy. Funny that.

Tomorrow's smartphone tech today

FAIL

Some bug fixes would be nice...

Whilst its nice to be all modern and such like, would be an idea if the powers that be actually fixed the known bugs in their products, i.e. a bit less focus on the shiny-shiny, a bit more focus on nitty-gritty.

e.g.

People being forced to recommend iPads because Google simply won't address the issue. (I have an Android phone and Tablet, before anyone accuses me of being a shill for Apple).

Death haunts government petitions site

Dogface
FAIL

Useless

I signed the petition, got back a confirmation link, clicked on it, and get a page not found error.

i.e. I am not able to confirm. I wonder how many other signatures they will 'accidentally' drop?

They couldn't run a bath.

Oracle's Java plan trapped in last century

Dogface
Facepalm

Ah, so you're the AC from earlier...

Eh? Which inaccuracy are you clearing up?

He never said you couldn't see changes in other threads, as it would be hard to code anything if that were the case.

He said:

For example, being able to change a variable in one thread and not have its changes be seen in another.

This is something altogether. In what way was he inaccurate?

Sorry you can't see the difference. I've been coding Java for 14 years, so perhaps that's why I can.

Java allows you to write non obvious, random, surprising code. Correct behaviour is optional, not mandatory.

Sure, you might get more performance, but you also get a lot more danger, you cut yourself without even realizing you've done so.
