Five comments in and no one's used the term Farcebook/Faecesbook or gone on a smug rant about how they don't need Facebook because they have real friends, etc, etc... I'm disappointed.
Re: Re: well now
In fact, if the powers-that-be wanted to create a catch-all domestic/cyber terror bogeyman that's, by it's very nature, the perfect patsy for false flag operations, they couldn't have come up with better.
The Revolution will be Tweeted
I think the medium is very much the message here... you could get a million people to sign a petition or march on parliament and not change a thing, but it seems that increasingly politicians are becoming more fearful of online protests like this. I suppose that's probably the underlying motivation for this kind of legislation.
Outraged airline passenger...
Do these pilots seriously not look where they are going?
"it seems an odd business decision to make when they sell a lot of their products the US"
And since Apple have also expressed support for same-sex marriage, I guess the devout will have no choice but to go with Linux?
So how do you tell from a "human readable" URL if the destination page contains malware? Personally I never visit a page unless the author has provided me with a print copy of the source code in advance...
It's only a matter of time before we get malware disguised as .brain files!
She goes both ways...
...and that's fine by me!
On the bald-ass Canadian prairie of the 1980s, a Spazz was a kid who was hyperactive or blathering nonsensically ("spazzing out")... I've always understood that "spastic" could be used to describe something that moves in a jerky, erratic fashion – which could make sense here.
I'd like to be the first smug bastard to go on about how superior I am for not using Facebook...
...but I bet I won't be.
Time to die...
Going through life thinking you're part of Generation X, only to be told halfway through that you're actually a Baby Boomer is surely enough to make one suicidal!
"I think you’ll find that Rednecks can be among the kindest folk you’ll ever meet."
Can be, but often aren't. I also live in rural Alberta, so I know exactly how full of shit you are.
A title is pointless
“It was a network administrator's worst fear: a rogue program operating silently... "
It's so much easier to spot them when they go "bing!".
"There's an easy way to fix it... use an e-mail client application like Windows Live Mail or Outlook to access it."
Doesn't that sort of defeat the purpose of having webmail?
Let's see how smug all those MAC users are now!
Mac and Linux users...
...you can put your smug hats back on now!
In the last ten years I've had a Nokia somethingorother, a Samsung Upstage, an iPhone 3GS and a Motorola MicroTAC... the MicroTAC was the only one that didn't suffer from signal loss if handled the wrong way (becuase it had the same radio transmitter as cold-war era nuclear submarine). I have to wonder if differing levels of electrical resistance in the user is a significant factor... boffins?
Nuclear facilities running Windows???
That's it, we're all doomed!
As a long-time Mac user...
I really find the zealotry of "converts" quite irritating... it's like listening to born-again Christians or ex-smokers going on about how their lives have changed. Seriously, who gives a shit?
Two nits to pick...
I'm fairly certain that tablets aren't a new category at all... and, speaking of Apple, I find it odd that iOS isn't even in the running.
"If you're running a G3 then it's probably too slow to view modern websites"
"Presumably, you're not actually interested in shipping water back from the moon."
Obviously not - it's a ridiculous notion... surely some sort of long hose taking advantage of earth's gravitational pull would be much more efficient.
You know where this ends...
"Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!"
A title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
Time to keel haul the patent system.
In defense of Disney
I simply can't believe that the company that brought us Mary Poppins and the Little Mermaid would do anything even remotely unethical ... I think these ungrateful Norwegians should stop picking on Disney and the lot of you should be ashamed for be a bunch of nasty bullies.
