On Nikon D7200 Review preview (555 comments in total)
In reply to:

Wubslin: Still doesn't explain why I should buy one though.

If you honestly believe that then I have a bridge to sell you.

All you need to get the ball rolling is a $1,000 bridge sale initiation/administration fee.

Western Union only please.

In reply to:

Wubslin: Another winner from Canon. Nikon obviously has no answer and is doomed.

@Just a Photographer: Not really. I just recognise that it will be a runaway commercial success regardless of its merits.

I have no intention of buying one as I don't like photography.

Wubslin: @Nathan Cowlishaw: The present economic climate is neither the time nor the place for 'Star Trek' style adventurism and fantasy.

We should concentrate on solving the real problems we have with the limited resources available to us.

@RichRMA: Careful when you drive on those taxpayer-funded roads, you might catch the socialism from them.

@Jasen70: That is irrelevant and dishonest. How about working on the problems that exist now?

@RichRMA: You've got yours, screw everyone else. And you want us to fund your space adventures as well?

@CaPi: The diference between NASA and smartphones and commercials the source of the funding.

One is funded from taxation and the other from private enterprise.

Do you not see why some people might object to taxpayers' money being wasted on this sort of thing?

@graybalanced: Ironic that you should mention the computer in support of your argument. Whatever date you accept for the invention of the computer, it significantly predates the space programme.

As does the invention of the transistor.

Wubslin: How much are the taxpayers on the hook for this particular exercise in adventurism?

@dcccp: So what you are saying is that we should shut up and accept the judgement of our betters because we're ignorant?

Sounds rather un-American.

@Francis Carver: 'This quest for "what is beyond the Universe"...'

Except there is no such quest. There is one for knowledge of this universe though. Is that such a bad thing?

@Francis Carver: Exactly, we should de-fund anything that doesn't turn an immediate profit. There is nothing we should care about except for money.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV First Impressions Review preview (686 comments in total)
In reply to:

Wubslin: I see the usual Internet Warriors have assembled with their tired canards about so-called 'rootkits' - how dreadfully predictable.

Let's get this straight once and for all - there never was any 'rootkit' or any other malware on any Sony product, ever. The people making these malicious and untrue claims will no doubt have to defend their lies in court.

@tbcass: Off you go then, run to the mods and tell them all about the bad men.

@Deliverator: So first it was a rootkit, then it was a virus, now it's an 'attempt' at copy protection... oh wait, it's 'effectively malware' now.

You just can't get your story straight, can you?

Or is what you wrote cribbed from the Wiki article and the lying leftist NYT, and you got all the various bits and pieces mixed up, because facts are too confusing and it's much easier to hate on the big bad corporation instead?
