Opera betas open source web debugger

WTF?

Surely some mistake

I've been using dragonfly for ages in Opera 11, it is very good, perhaps this story simply refers to a new version?

IPCC Rainforest eco-tastrophe claim confirmed as bunk

FAIL

But Alan has swallowed his whole

http://www.justsharethis.com/top-10-biggest-companies-in-the-world-2009/

Alan is right! Exxon Mobil pump that oil out of the ground for the good of their health, and hardly make a penny out of it. The market capitalisation must reflect people's esteem for the charitable work they do. They would be much better off making wind turbines out of recycled baked bean cans for spare change. Perhaps it has never crossed their minds to richly fund a disinformation campaign. They simply can't afford it. We should pass a hat round, or better still, we could work as unpaid oil company shills in our spare time. Who's with Alan and me? We could start off by looking through the thousands of references in the IPCC report and seeing if they got any of the page numbers wrong. Tell us about global warming? They can't even count!

Adobe processor price switch riles developers

DonaldTwain

Dumped CS - for what?

What did you buy instead of Creative Suite? Adobe bought and destroyed Macromedia, Quark just isn't keeping up, and Gimp is not coming to a design shop near you anytime soon. As Adobe are operating what amounts to a monopoly, what choice do you have? I agree the prices are outrageous.

Army officer tossed laptops into the sea

@ david, Computer rights v Human rights

If you are happy to kill someone entering your home, why does this logic not apply to the Iraqi people whose home country and sometimes houses have been entered 'illegally and without proper invitation' by UK/US troops?

Is it because only your own and 'British Soldier's' perspectives count in your warped ethical scheme? And is that because you are a daft racist?

Thought so.
