  1. Hitachi announces new technology that will allow 4 Tb HD's in the near future:

    So, do you really need that kind of space?

     

    I didn't think I'd ever need 120 GB three years ago. Then I never thought I'd need 1 TB. Now I have an 80 GB, and two 500 GB. I can't download anymore, so I'm not running out of space fast, but I have filled both drives about halfway. Give me four TB and I'll find something to do with it. :tooth:


  2. To quote Penn Jillette:

     

    Unpleasant, myopic, impotent despot! icon13.gif

     

    They won't be happy until nobody can listen to music without worrying who's around. That's bull crap. Before you know it, it'll be a crime to play a musical instrument without an expensive licence. No more piano lessons for junior anymore! :mad:


  3. I speed carefully. It's not a problem as long as you stay in your lane and some butthole doesn't merge right into you. I lay on the horn often, but I do have pretty good stopping power.

     

    I don't go over 90, though. I rarely go 80, usually more like 70, which actually isn't even speeding on some parts of the expressway.


  4. 'Gav'? Is that the name of a show or a typo for 'fav', because you know it's against the rules to post about downloading copyrighted materials, right?

     

    "Downloading a TV show" doesn't necessarily mean an illegal activity, not all video is copyrighted. It's a stretch, but a technicality nonetheless. :tooth:


  5. Between those two, I'd definitely go for the G37, especially if it has more features than the BMW. I wouldn't ever buy a car just because "it's a BMW". If I had $40,000 to spend on a car, though, I'd honestly get a '67 Camaro, a Harley, and a leather jacket. :D


  6. How the fvck is it unlawful to unlock an iPhone?

     

    I don't have one. I don't even want the cellphone I have.

     

    If I own the hardware, and what I am doing with said hardware is not physically harming others, how can this possibly be against the law?

     

    It's DRM, protected by the DMCA, which was voted for by the entire senate, all of whom belong in nooses for their disservice to this country.

     

    It never ceases to fascinate me how bills like this can be voted for unanimously. That kind of makes you think some of them are accepting bribes.
