… have you informed them of this and your reaction to it? If it could help them not to make this particular mistake again, then you should.
… and with Chromium?
Ways and means
I've started keeping one browser for Google stuff where I need to be signed in and another for everything else. However, that still leaves my Android phone, for which many things will normally go via a Google app because it's more convenient.
Ouch ouch ouch
He has a computer call?
$(shutdown -h now)
Enough said. :-)
I've always used the open-source drivers. Yes, there have been missing features, but then I've never been stuck with particular kernel versions because of lack of support in the drivers.
I'm currently using Gallium3D (part of Mesa 7.9-devel) on R300-series hardware. When that fails or I find it to be a bit too underpowered, then I'll see what's around and what's supported (should be more or less what's available, as well as older hardware).
Oh, wait, wrong sort…
Software (or firmware), shirley.
Not to be anywhere near as restrictive about bundling their OS (seemingly) anywhere and everywhere. Especially on laptops and netbooks. I'd like to be able to walk into a local PC World (for example) and buy a shiny new laptop without having to pay the Windows tax.
Although, to be fair, I did once buy a shiny new netbook from them, and there was no Windows tax. But that was before the netbook market was stitched up by M$…
Certainly. Just not in the way which they'd prefer…
Too long to boot etc.?
Simple fix. Install something GNU/Linux, being careful to do a reasonably minimal installation (at least initially). Power-on to desktop in 30s is fairly easily possible, counting time taken to apply fingers to keyboard for login purposes.
And, er… virus updates? Really? I would have thought that you'd want to get rid of them…
Anyway, about this iPad thing being a media consumption device: call it an iPod Max.
bugs.debian.org would be affected: it uses bold text for unvisited links and normal text for visited links.
… does, as you seem to be saying, need to be more fine-grained. There are certain sites for which I *want* to keep history across browsing sessions, then there's everywhere else where either I would prefer to throw away the history (or not record it in the first place) or it doesn't matter.
Manual selective clearing is possible, but people are lazy.
I'm presently using Deja Vu Sans Bold for window titles and Deja Vu Serif Condensed for my desktop font, mainly because I decided that I'd had enough of the similarity between ‘I’ and ‘l’. Works well with plain anti-aliasing; none of this horrible highly noticeable colour-fringing nonsense.
Re: It changes nothing for Chinese users
And if there's a ‘cached’ link…?
Not for us Iceweasel users!
All compass points
Magnetic ice? Interesting.
Re: I don't use Windows
“Seriously: how long does it *take* to come up with a single, unified install and uninstall system, or a single, consistent GUI, with proper guidelines?”
What does that have to do with Linux?
Linux, combined with userland stuff to make an OS (let's call it GNU/Linux, for convenience) – yes, there maybe you have a point. But that would be monoculture…
I'd stick to using it when baking if I were you. Unless you mean caustic soda…

So, looking at those dates, three of those are potentially scammer domains, and one very likely isn't.
The other eleven possibilities (discounting non-ASCII, which I've not checked) are all, as yet, unregistered…
There's an idea
