Re: Macs ARE PCs.
By the same token as correcting a colloquial term like internet to www
correcting a PC to a "windows based desktop computer" would be correct.
My point is semantics - and you are making it for me.
Although technically incorrect "the internet" being WWW is an feature of popular misnomers describing 'complicated' technologies that are taken over by the ease of access to non-techies.
'my ipad' actually being an android tablet
'my pc' being a desktop mac
etc etc etc
'the internet' is one we all use daily and could be forgiven for (surely?) eg:
"have you seen that 'thing' on 'the internet'"
but granted, maybe shouldn't the larger news sources actually be correctly headlining for the masses :
"Technology underpinning the way Web Pages are created and displayed turns 25"
cant see it happening, more likely they'll choose a more colloquial
"internet turns 25"
As we are talking colloquially: What Evs.
"Even if you make sure not to post photos of yourself, you can't stop your friends from doing so. If you use drugs and there are pictures of you doing that and you apply for a job, you won't get hired."
I really don't understand why people still have such a problem understanding this concept. Internetz be public unless you KNOW only you can see it or better still don't put it on the bleeding thing.
Got halfway through and couldn't stand it anymore...

Thanks to the BBFC for bringing this film to my attention :P
Now all we need is some kind of "standard" for companies called "do not hack".... I cant see how this will really help advertisers or anyone else who will ultimatly not really care what protection you have, they will always find a way around it
Or better still

Sounds alot like..
Google are giving a clear bias toward whatever hosting they will be doing, surely the 'fastest' servers will be in googles own network across the globe? that being the case, its just a matter of marketing the fact, and boom, before you know it peeps will be clambering over themselves to get some Google Server action to help them clamber up the rankings
