Ballmer's breaking point: Is Windows 8 already too late?

Sandy106

I was thinking the same

I've been really impressed by 7 so far, no idea why MS would want to shove out a new one already. Then again, I'm a home consumer, not aome IT nerd.

Spotify trumpets move to US (and little else)

Sandy106

Okay

Can someone tell me the point of Spotify? Why would I want to listen to ad filled music thats already on my MP3 player, phone, and computer anyways?

Go Daddy in the hands of private equity giants

Sandy106

@hayden

They arent really that cheap. Their basic $5/month hosting has limited bandwidth and storage, the more reasonably limited or unlimited accounts are $15-30/month. Dreamhost and a few dozen other hosts are all $10/month for unlimited everything and domain names.

Worst company on the planet

I've never dealt with a company as bad or idiotic as GoDaddy. I got transferred 4 times when I called them to ask about hosting since none of the phone reps had any technical knowledge whatsoever. Finally gave up and chose a different host. Apparently their tech support is even worse.

Facebook game outfit Zynga files for $1bn IPO

Sandy106
Alert

Could make sense, maybe

They do have 60 million users which I'm sure takes up a ****load of servers, electricty, salary for their 1000 employees, and Facebook takes 30% of the profit as well since they have to use FB Credits. That being said, the company's valuation is insane. Electronic Arts was valued at $4 billion last I saw. There's no way Zynga should be more than that.

Revenue is usually the total amount of sales the company did. Income is their revenue minus the cost it took to do the sales. In this case Zynga had $597 million in fake fruit sales, and after the expenses of doing those sales, had $90.6 million left over as income.

WW2 naval dazzle-camo 'could beat Taliban RPGs'

Some letters and or numbers

Why are they even trying to camoflauge tanks against RPGs? Those things bounce of most tanks and even our (American) Strykers.

Eurofighter Typhoon: It's EVEN WORSE than we thought

Sandy106
WTF?

LoL

"The Typhoons are, by any measure a disaster"

Kind of funny how we in the US are always told the F22 is a complete cockup and that the Eurofighter is better than an erotic massage from a naked Lindsey Lohan and Paris Hilton
