Ancient Mars: Covered with life, oceans, clouds, and imagination

WTF?

Re: That life existed on mars is

Obviously you have not seen the US documentary "Total Recall", where historian Arnold Schwarzenegger clearly demonstrates that not only did life on Mars exist, but if you flip the big switch the atmostphere and water will return.

Victory on mobile belongs to Google in 2013

FAIL

iTunes..

Latest version is a pile of shite. They did a Microsoft and took something easy and intuitive to use and turned it into a fucking nightmare of "where the fuck do I find that now". Someone shoot the developers three times to verify the first two times did the job. Then click "undo" several times and release that version..

Minicam movie pirate gets record-breaking five years in prison

Freetards huh?

I love the excuses of freetards for stealing movies, music or whatever else they feel like taking. Do artists get a bad deal from music corps? Sure.. so lets make that better by stealing the few cents per song they would get if we weren't a bunch of thieving chavs.

And oh.. wow.. the big bad movie industry.. they definitely deserve everything they get.. because, you know, even the cameramen and makeup artists get the same millions as everyone else.

What surprises me is it's always someone elses job to pay for a movie, thus generating the guilt-free concept that it's okay to blag a copy because they're making money hand over fist without my contribution.

I said this before and I'll say it again.. some people deserve groups like the MPAA and these guys are some of them.

El Reg man: Too bad, China - I was RIGHT about hoarding rare earths

Stop

China

It's interesting that while politicians rain hate down on China, both left and right, the companies that fund their campaigns seem to be infatuated with the country.

Whether it's Apple using a company to produce shiny screens that's known for child labour abuse or Walmart selling nothing but Chinese made goods (and for that matter paying Chinese wages), US corporations just love the place. Certainly they couldn't care less if their homeland becomes a bankrupt cesspool, with record unemployment, no health insurance and record low wages that put even Chinese goods out of the reach of its inhabitants. That Walmart employees are on food stamps due to low wages seems to be bad simply because they're getting the food stamps, rather than being bad because they're paid a wage so fucking outrageous they cannot support their families without them.

Then you have Apple cheerfully fighting the good fight by promissing to pay minimum wage to some guys and girls who will be assembling Chinese made products into Macs. Hoo-fucking-ray for them. How wonderful that they are following the HP model of being willing to pay fuck all to glorified lego builders.

The bad part is that while we can all wish that these rich gits will end up being arse-fucked by the economy when there's no one left who can actually afford the crap they're selling, the unfortunate thing is they still won't care because they'll just move their wealth to China and take what they can get from there.

Clouds eh? What happened to just printing everything out and putting it in a folder? Trees and dot matrix printers were invented for a reason people.
