Go Get ’em and Give ’em Hell

Here is a great rant about all those useless gadgets and consumer electronic DRM (Digital Rights Management) laden crap that people think they need. It is finally good to read someone give all the idiots their do. Thanks Joel Johnson for telling it strait out.

” Consumer electronics are a joke. It’s everyone’s fault but mine. You assholes.

These guys want me to write a weekly column, but I hate consumer electronics. I hate marketing, and people, because you’re all so dumb. If your lucky and I need the money. I will…

And you guys ate it up. Kept buying shitty phones and broken media devices green and dripping with DRM… …to read the latest announcements of the most trivial jerk-off products, completely ignoring the stories about technology actually making a difference to real human beings…”

I wish I could print out a piece of pizza and get a cup of coffee from my computer. Of course they do have edible inks so you can print out what you want to eat on paper. Or you can check out Moto Restaurant if you are in the Chicago area.

Not the same as printing out a piece of pizza though is it?

Update: It appears to be an advertisement for The First Post but still worth a look.

And how long before all the crackers get a hold of the back door information and use it against us? Pretty quick I would imagine.

Here is a straightforward way for you to mount windows partitions in linux. However with fedora core 4 they have added fstab_sync and I myself am not sure how this effects your editing of the fstab file and making changes permenent. If any one has something to add about that please do. I will continue to look for more information on it and experiment.
