Re: WB Addresses MAN OF STEEL 2 Opening Against CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 - https://www.amctheatres.com/movie-n...
"How many men have played Batman? And I won't even count Adam West, let's just go back 15 years. How many men have played Superman? How many men have played Wolverine? How many men have played Captain America? How many men have played Prof. Xavier?" - Bryan Price

Re: WB Addresses MAN OF STEEL 2 Opening Against CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 - https://www.amctheatres.com/movie-n...
"I think WB will be the ones to change the date. Marvel had already stated that they planned on releasing a movie on that date. Yeah, it was unnamed, but still, if WB really decides to go head to head with Captain America, I think WB will lose. I certainly am not that interested in Batman VS Superman. Bale isn't coming back for Batman, and I wasn't that impressed with Man of Steel. Marvel is pulling off fresh stuff. DC and WB, not so much." - Bryan Price

Re: Samsung Galaxy S5 (T-Mobile) - http://www.pcmag.com/article...
"Nit picking. The Note series did NOT have the faux leather plastic back cover. Only the Note 3. As a (former, I lost it) original Note owner, that one certainly only had the regular plastic cover. I will be replacing my Moto G (replacement for the Note, because it/I was CHEAP!) this summer, probably with the Note 3, but I will have a good look at the S5 and compare the two. This issues I see for me with the S5. I'm not interested in the fitness apps. They went to 3GB of RAM on the Note 3, but they stayed with 2GB of ram on the S5. I'm not really interested in a wrist device, let alone the latest and greatest. None of those issues are terminal." - Bryan Price

bytehead on Lots of shows are missing updates. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"New user here (can't remember who or what pointed me to the extension the first time...), and I was wondering why things weren't updating. And I find myself here. :) I got CSI to update with your recommendation. (OK, it was the last episode of the season that it hadn't updated...), and now I have duplicate entries for SOME of the episodes. That may correct itself when I restart Chrome. Nope. I still have 4 duplicated episodes. Weird. However, some of the shows, like Cosmos, just say "Fetching episodes" and nothing happens. I'll let it sit and see if it decides to work, or not. I like this extension. I use TED, but the default torrent feeds are basically screwed. So, I would have to go through each and every one of them. Until the next batch no longer works... And so, I've been using it to just let me know that something should be up on the torrent sites, and manually search for them. I don't know what's up with TED either, ted.nu appears to have been flattened. It 302's to the default..." - Bryan Price

Re: Why doesn’t the Samsung Gear Fit support the iPhone: Hubris or stupidity? - http://www.extremetech.com/computi...
"The last time I had to deal with iTunes was six months ago. I found that MediaMonkey actually dealt with the iPod more in the manner that I thought it should be, but then my son lost his other, newer iPod, and took it back. Now, I throw MP3s on a thumb drive and listen to them in my car. It still uses and REQUIRES the Mac interface. Which, unless you use a Mac or have much more experience with Apple software than I'm willing to inflict on myself, leaves me wondering just which of the red, green and yellow icons (on the wrong side of the window no less) I need to click to either close it, minimize it, or make it full screen (if that is indeed full screen...). NO hover help. It's just easier to kill it through the Task Manager than to figure out which one I'm supposed to click. And I'd really just like to kill it by fire, period." - Bryan Price

"I have to agree with DudeAbiding. iTunes isn't even in the league of the red-headed stepchild. iTunes on Windows is an abortion because Apple wants you to buy a Macintosh to get the "full" and "correct" way of dealing with whatever iDevice you are trying to connect. The Cult of Mac strikes again. Yeah, this should at least work on other Android devices. But this is taking a page of Apple's own marketing plan. Will it be successful? Who knows." - Bryan Price

Re: Looking Ahead at Automotive Decisions - http://www.thesimpledollar.com/looking...
"I think your estimates on the cost of replacing all those batteries on the Prius are too low. A friend that was looking at buying a Prius that needed all the batteries replaced was said that it was just too costly, even with the attractive price, as the battery cost, an immediate out of pocket cost, would have cost another $2k. And nothing preventing another replacement down the road. I can't remember where I read it, but there was a survey that said most hybrid car owners would NOT buy another hybrid. IIRC, that was among owners who were happy with their vehicle." - Bryan Price

Re: The Old Reader: behind the scenes - The Old Reader Premium! - http://blog.theoldreader.com/post...
"Not really. theoldreader works for me, I'm used to it, and the $60/year that I spend will ensure that I continue to have it work for me. I was used to Bloglines, and only moved to Google Reader after the CF that went on after they got bought. I finally got used to Google Reader, and when I found that theoldreader worked similarly enough, I got hooked." - Bryan Price

Now, while I might be able to get that under 1000 by pruning the ones that haven't updated in awhile, I already got rid of the deadwood before I got off Google Reader." - Bryan Price

"cure some of our petty ailments Yeah, like how fire cured a lot of our petty ailments way back then. Or discovering how to control diseases through antibiotics, vaccinations, and clean water. we assumed by now we would be living on Jupiter and further into the depths of space That shows a lot of different things. Human devotion (or lack thereof) to setting up colonies in the rest of the solar system, the sheer distances that need to be conquered to do so, and even the technology to keep the colonists alive. We're getting there, it's just going to be a matter of time. we will never fully conquer death I'm not real sure what you mean by that. Even if we get life extension until either an accident or we just plain decide to pull the plug, there will always be death involved, our bodies have cells that regularly die off, but they get replaced. it will work in a way that is baffling and mysterious to us, guided by principles beyond our understanding. True. And as long as it doesn't kill..." - Bryan Price

Re: 10 Peculiar Things Public Schools Have Banned - http://www.mentalfloss.com/article...
"I must be an old fart. I remember boys getting sent home because they hadn't shaved in three days or whenever the principal thought that somebody needed to shave (and the teachers could wear full beards??). No mustaches or full beards for the boys. I think side burns were supposed to be no lower than the ear lobe, but if so, it was ignored, mostly at least. No shorts. Male hair could not be on the shoulders (although again, it was laxly enforced). Males carrying purses, although they usually weren't ours, to begin with, but it was quite the thing to be doing as a male in marching band. Otherwise I would have been carrying my own. It would have been convenient. But I carried one during the football games! And that's just what little I remember from high school. Oh yeah, no walking to/from school. It was a rural school district, so it makes some sense, but my son decided to walk to high school (when he didn't have to with bus service) and he walked further than I had to walk.

Re: The Best Android Phone, Fall 2013 - http://thewirecutter.com/reviews...
"I think that this goes for all the US carriers, but certainly for AT&T. Put your SIM card into a smart phone when you don't have a data plan, and AT&T will put you on one. It might take a couple of months, but AT&T will detect it, and turn on the data plan. I had two teenagers that lucked into two iPhones from their older siblings. And exactly that happened." - Bryan Price

Re: The Indiana Jones Method - http://scripting.com/2013...
"You're not the only one. I have an editor that has had issues with encoding too. They have fixed the problem for the display, but the print output sucks. Save the file as a plain ASCII file, and there are no problems. But it randomly decides to change that on subsequent saves. So, I wrote a program that creates HTML that prints as I want it to. In some ways, it is actually better, since I have it parsing the program (Powershell)." - Bryan Price

Re: Mozilla’s major user interface overhaul Australis lands in Firefox Nightly - http://thenextweb.com/insider...
"Yeah, I've got the profile manager down now. Profiles ARE case sensitive (I created Test Me, and was using -p "Test me". Oops! And both shortcuts use -p even though it's set to ask me every time (I tell it which profile to run, and it goes...). Then again, I was expecting Firefox to just create the profile the first time, not have me create it with the manager. Hence the case issue to begin with! Now, the -no-remote is interesting, and I must have missed that on at least three different occasions looking at three different sources of explanations of command line. I will add that to both shortcuts. Thank you Florian!" - Bryan Price

Re: Mozilla’s major user interface overhaul Australis lands in Firefox Nightly - http://thenextweb.com/insider...
"I run a new profile ("Test Me") with the 32-bit Nightly. Unfortunately, Windows won't let me run both at the same time. If I start the 32-bit version with the 64-bit version running, it runs the 64-bit version again. And vice versa. Just restored a backup of my bookmarks from my default profile (dead simple). I've tried different ways of starting it, but Windows is determined to run whatever I have running first (again!). And I've never played with multiple profiles before, either. What fun! I had to rename my default profile to just default, and then I force it with -p for the 64-bit Firefox. It seems to remember and recall the last profile used. Even when I do successfully run the 32-bit Firefox as itself. I'll probably install the 32-bit nightly on my laptop and run the laptop and desktop side by side." - Bryan Price

Re: ARM: Who needs 128-bit chips? - http://www.tgdaily.com/semicon...
"Let's see, we started with 32 bit as a requirement in 1995. XP x64 came out in 2006. Now we haven't hit Windows 8.x having a X64 requirement, but the next version probably will. Let's call that 2017. The way the whole computer business is going, we should see our first 128 bit hardware in 2028 (2017+((2006-1995)/2). Yeah, that's 25 years away. But not inconceivable either. That is, even if we get to a 128 bit architecture. By then, what we consider as architecture may be considered old school, and something else may very well take over. It's also interesting that 2028 is close to the time when we should be able to buy a human equivalent computer for $5K (2000 US)." - Bryan Price

Re: Mozilla’s major user interface overhaul Australis lands in Firefox Nightly - http://thenextweb.com/insider...
"I'm running the sorta not official X64 build of the nightly. So I installed the 32 bit version and created a new profile for it. Unfortunately, Windows refuses to run both side by side. If I run 64 bit, clicking on the 32 bit link to open it up opens up another 64 bit window. Now, I can run other portable Firefox without this issue, so evidently I need to load it with different parameters, at least as far as Windows is concerned. So, I now have to run one or the other. Or figure the workaround for it. And I'm just looking at how my theme (Noia) reacts and a few other things." - Bryan Price
