Hey +Google and +YouTube!

Yo DAWG! I herd you liek ContentID!

Oh the irony... +Yonatan Zunger 

Will this get google to remove a system that gives all the power to large companies and zero power to the poor asshole on the receiving end of this automated takedown crap?

Not a fucking snowball's chance in hell. But oh the irony when +Google's own video is taken down by Content ID.

Wow. The GOP is fast becoming radical extremists.
 
Do I really need to point out just how fucked up this is?

"On September 12th, 2013, Bill Nowling casually stated that the city’s power outages were intentional. Officials and citizens working in the city were given no warning before the electricity was cut off. Law enforcement officials working in the Hall of Justice had no time to prepare. Senior citizens and disabled citizens using elevators in the city’s downtown district had no way to know what was coming. The entire criminal justice system was shut down without notice. Wayne State University Campus was just one of many sites evacuated under emergency conditions. Traffic lights across the city stopped working. 1,400 public and private locations were left without power. And the entire thing was intentional, to “send a message” to the people of Detroit. Bill Nowling works in the office of Kevin Orr, Detroit’s Emergency Manager."

Well... Duh. iPhone users have been getting screwed for 4 years and iFans have been thanking apple for pulling their pants down and making with the surprise buttsecks.

Apple isn't going to change a strategy that has been working for them.
 
iScrewed. My thoughts on the iPhone 5S

We got screwed. Plain and simple.

1) We wanted a bigger screen. Instead we've got essentially the same screen we've had for three years. 

2) We wanted more battery life. We got a 64 bit processor that uses more battery, and an operating system that also uses more battery. I can't wait to see those battery life tests. 

3) We wanted NFC. Some of us anyway. It was high on the list of desired features. Some of us are sick of our Android friends rubbing it in our faces that they have it and we don't.

But even though we didn't get those things, think about what we could have gotten instead:

1) Waterproofing. Wouldn't that have been nice? Why is it that Sony can make a masterpiece out of glass and metal that's completely waterproof, but Apple can't? I thought this was supposed to be the "best phone".  

2) Wireless charging. Something SO EASY to implement that most new phones just have it now. There is a standard for it. 

3) Theming. Wouldn't it have been nice to be able to change your icons? I know a lot of people HATE the new ones with a passion (I actually don't mind them). 

So what did we actually get?

1) We got an updated camera that at least catches up with offerings from Nokia and Samsung. This is the end of the upgrades that matter. 

2) We got a processor that's 64 bit on a phone that doesn't have 4GB of ram, rendering it completely pointless. Even worse, everybody will be switching to 64 bit following the ARM Roadmap for 2014, so it's not like this was even something we needed now. It was just cheap meaningless bragging rights that give us NOTHING. A marketing stunt from a company with ONE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS sitting in the bank that could very well afford to give us the phone we actually wanted. 

3) We got a temperamental fingerprint scanner that doesn't like wet fingers. Great going into the winter when we'll all be wearing gloves anyway. 

We got screwed. End of story. Honestly, I'd keep my iPhone 5. If I was upgrading from an iPhone 4 or 4S, I'd just get a leftover iPhone 5, unless you REALLY WANT to get the "poor people" plastic iPhone.

If you are REALLY mad about this, there are no shortage of equal or better phones from more accommodating makers to pick from. The HTC One is very nice. So is the Moto X.  They both review very well. 

Good Night

It's about time he did something right. He's been screwing up all over the place lately. Something like this is a breath of fresh air.
 
Obama wants us to be able to unlock our phones and require carriers to do it for free

At the Obama administration's direction, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has petitioned the FCC with suggested rules to formalize not only the legality of unlocking phones, but that carriers be required to do so free of charge. The NTIA's proposal says that any customer — whether under contract or not — should be allowed to unlock his or her phone or tablet. One of the reasons many carriers lock phones is to keep customers from switching, but the NTIA argues that carriers already have plenty of levers to keep customers on board, writing that carriers "effectively prevent consumers from subverting that [contract] model through long-term service contracts, enforced by penalties or fees for early termination."

If this ends happening, the US could finally join the rest of the world when it comes to unlocking phones.

I really dislike Best Buy overall. Their prices are a total ripoff, and typically their employees are idiots. This store is a bit of an exception. Every time I have needed anything out of the ordinary, they have gone out of their way to help me. The fact that the customer service I have received at this store is so good makes me happy to shop there. That said, Best Buy prices are a total ripoff. Make sure you have a price matching app (like ShopSavvy) so that you can have them pricematch with Amazon, Newegg, Frys or Microcenter.

I am originally from Kansas City, and the Microcenter on 91st and Metcalf in Overland Park, KS is freaking awesome. This Microcenter is ok. Until recently it had utterly dismal and depressing lighting. They changed it around Black Friday of 2012, so it's actually quite nice. They also made the store much less Cluttered. The sales staff in the parts department are nice and helpful. The people in the monitor section are typical salesmen, which is basically useless when it comes to information. Overall it's a great store, but their staff could use some educating.

Selection is nice. Meat department has some great cuts at decent prices. Doesn't carry the 10 calorie sodas other than Dr. Pepper. The have Mastercard Paypass, but will physically stop you from using your nfc phone to use Google Wallet to pay, yet they have no problem with nfc enabled Mastercards. For this reason alone, you should avoid this store and go somewhere that isn't managed by luddites.
