    Commented in Four terrible effects of Daylight Saving Time

    Hey that's a really good way of looking at it!! All this time I've been thinking of good arguments to get rid of it, but... putting the ball in the other court and asking what is the good reason to keep it.... that's awesome. And yeah, I bet they can't come up with anything (besides "that's the way it's been done for the last 50 years" or whatever).

    Commented in Four terrible effects of Daylight Saving Time

    In the middle of winter, the days are too short no matter what end of the day the hour of sunlight goes. In summer, the days are so long there is plenty of daylight no matter what. Maybe it makes a tiny difference for a short time in spring or fall to have the clocks change, but.... is it REALLY worth all that hassle??

    Commented in Scientists find proof that a black hole is lurking in the middle of our galaxy

    I would have preferred it if the journalists had told us how far away it was from us. Oddly enough, there was no mention of any kind of distance from where we are. Even if the distance would have been difficult for astronomers to estimate, they could have stated that instead of leaving it with no indication. "The middle of the galaxy" is a rather vague term, and I personally would rather know how far it is from us, than where it is in the galaxy.

    Commented in CDC urging people to stop using dead bats as Halloween decorations

    This is totally bizarre. Can't imagine why anyone would even want to do that (let alone actually doing it).

    Commented in Notorious patent enforcement entity values its entire portfolio at $2, folds

    Patent trolls like the one mentioned here wind up making so many businesses go under. I'm glad to hear that this one is no longer around.

    Commented in Spotting Disinformation Online Before the Midterm Elections

    I think that disinformation has been and will always be a problem, although certainly platforms like Facebook etc have made it more easy for it to be disseminated. The reason it will always be a problem is that many people believe what they want to believe, regardless of facts.

    This does not really bother me. Maybe it should, but I just don't really see it as my problem.

    I'm just saying that even without disinformation, some people will just believe what they want to without taking any of the facts into account (even in cases where the facts are accurately represented).

    Commented in Twitter to remove 'like' tool in a bid to improve the quality of debate

    OK, but I'd say the vast majority of Twitter users use Twitter exactly because the short format avoids boring political rants and debates. If people want to go on a political rant, there's Facebook and Tumblr. So I'm not sure that the average Twitter users wants to read political things to begin with; most of them are trying to avoid that sort of thing. Therefore I predict that removing the 'like' tool probably isn't going to have the effect that Twitter was hoping for, but then again you never know.

    Commented in Ocean Shock: Fish Flee the Carolinas as Waters Warm. People lose out.

    Looking at the economic changes in certain industries, like fishing, is a much better indicator of whether climate change is real, than listening to a "yes it is" "no it isn't" debate.

    Commented in Facebook loses a million European users in three months

    They did not offer any reason for this, just the stats. However, in the wake of the various privacy scandals, I'm guessing it's probably related to that.

    A thorough analysis of an interesting application of VR. Also, the authors of this article touched on the distinction between researching about autism versus the more collaborative researching with autism (i.e. involving the community of those with autism to see what questions they would like to have researched).

    Commented in Upgrade? No Thanks. Americans Are Sticking With Their Old Phones

    I, and most people I know will just use their phone until it breaks or has some major problem. Because at some point it will get damaged enough not to work, and THAT is the time to upgrade. It costs a lot to upgrade, so most people save that opportunity for when it's essential, not for when it's optional.

    Commented in Apple reportedly announcing iPad Pro with USB-C, MacBook Air successor, and new Mac Mini next week

    It may be interesting, but the high price point of Apple relative to its specs will put it out of reach for many. Plus, I've noticed a lot more software available for other OS's (Windows, Linux), than there is for Mac. I am starting to wonder for how long Apple computers will be viable when so many cheaper alternatives exist.
