Let’s Make One The Size Of A Door

Dan Seifert of The Verge:

Samsung announced today that the Galaxy Mega 6.3, the company's biggest “phone” device to date, will be available in the US this month. The Mega 6.3 has a 6.3-inch, 720p display; 1.7GHz dual-core processor; 8-megapixel camera; and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung's user interface.

You know an Android “phone” is absolutely, positively, stupid-o-riffically too damn big when even The Verge puts scare quotes around “phone.”

Media Executives Are Morons

So “content creators” have their panties all in a wad over Aereo, a service which allows subscribers in New York City to watch live television over the internet. They are dumb, stupid idiots:

Broadcasters also claim that Aereo threatens their license agreements with services like Hulu and would effectively kill advertising revenue — networks say there’s no viable way of tracking online viewership.

Great point, dumbasses. It’s a computer. It can track viewership. A television cannot. So, that was a really effing stupid thing to say, you jackass.

I like Chris Welch’s rebuttal:

These arguments seem rather hard to justify when you consider Aereo is extending the distribution of what’s already offered for free.

Yes, exactly. What are they supposed to be losing, anyway? I’m sick to fucking death of these media companies keeping us in 1957. It’s 2012.

Stop It, RIM, You’re Embarrassing Everyone

Just look at this garbage. I’ll bet you close the window the second the talking begins.

This is all the proof you need–outside of using one of their devices–in order to understand just how quickly RIM and Blackberry are swirling down the shitter.

Good news, QWERTY fans!

The price of the Droid 3 has been dropped to $99 in anticipation of the Droid 4! In related news, the Droid 5 will be released on February 9. The Droid 6 will be released on February 10. The Droids 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 will be released, progressively throughout the day, on February 11.

Forgot your password? Less likely: do you remember it?

Am I seriously alone in being nearly driven to murder by the sheer number of times daily I have to type meaningless, hard-to-remember gibberish (in the form of imminently hackable and insecure user / pass combos)? Ever spend 15 minutes typing in 57 different variations of your sign-in info, only to visit another site 20 minutes later and repeat that process? I realize this is becoming something of a white whale for me, but for Dog’s sake, there has to be a better way to do this!

Corn (Makes Me Feel Fine)

A stupid song I recorded using Garageband for iPad.
