Will it be stable?

Seriously, WTF is wrong all the browsers these days that they are no longer stable? And will MS EVER allow ad blocking, cross script killing add-ons?

I not only need fast, I need armored... and some way to send a message to the fucking morons who build websites these days that their code should be shoved up their ass.

Re: facebook IS more important than portugal...

Dey is be famous! This means one day dey will be rich!

QED

If there was any doubt that most people utter morons, the Internet has dispelled that doubt. Most of the knowledge of the human race is now available at our fingertips and yet people are still incredibly, incredibly stupid.

Maybe in another generation the Internet might help change all that. Sometime after WW3 I think.

Will disappear?

Will it then change the conditional paradigm and re-purpose exiting content by bringing new synergies that reach out to current matrices while effecting tonal nuances that leverage past histories?

Re: This is the end, beautiful friend <RANT>

Well said, Version 1.0.

The Internet has become nothing but a mostly useless clogged up sewer. Even the intellectual content is getting harder and harder to come by or ending up behind pay walls.

The noise to signal is overwhelming.

Re: Stupid clock

You really have no grasp of history, do you? There were and still are, enough nukes to kill everything on the planet several THOUSAND times over and we really were very close for 50 of those last 70 years.

...and still are for that matter.

Re: I'd rather see another Chris Carter series

What is they reversed it? And set it back in the past? And called it something like "Agent Carter?"

Right now, Marvel is the new "X-Files". "Agents of Shield" and now "Agent Carter" are carrying the "conspiracy weirdness" torch and carrying it well.

Why? What weird alien conspiracy alternate universe twilight zone subject was not covered by the original series?

They should just rerun the series again. It will be a long time before another show of that genre will come around again and seem as fresh as it did.

It seems technology has changed nothing. Dating is still a minefield and technology has only made it more complicated.

Really, govt tech profit cash grab is a PRIZE-WINNING idea?

ecofeco

What utter bollocks

The game is rigged. Period. The powerful always do whatever they can to reinforce their power and the rest can go hang.

While there are people who rise up from poverty to wealth, they are the exception, not the rule. The rule is no matter how hard you try, without the right connections and some luck, you are going to eventually hit a wall. A wall put there by the powerful.

In all of history, the "middle classes" as we know it today are an aberration. Some type of feudalism has always been the norm. These days, it's a type of modern corporate feudalism.

Then there is the luck factor. Don't think for one moment you can ignore this very powerful influence. Without luck, your brilliant idea and heart attack level of perseverance will mean nothing.

Last but not least, there is the Marie Antoinette syndrome. The rich and powerful eventually blame the not so fortunate for their unfortunate circumstances. This always causes a backlash that deprives the oh so smart and witty of their power and to lose their heads.

Thus it has ever been since recorded history.

"At Christmas the ordinary toyshops no longer have window displays of Meccano ferris wheels with lights - and large scenic layouts of electric trains. In the 1950s austerity years of dim street gas lights and smoke-aided fog - the toyshop windows at Christmas were oases of magical light."

Yes they were. *sigh*
