Makes sense

All social networking over the internet is anymore is a way of collecting data on personal activities of the population so what better than a product of Google who is already in the lead of doing just that....collecting your data....

Thank you. *(^o^)*

I would like to publicly thank Adobe for contributing to the open source communities efforts in removing bugs and security risks. Thank you for removing the Flash 64 bug/security hole. :P

I really like this one!

If Samsung ever makes one of these with an "nVidia" graphics chip-set I would have to buy it. The Intel graphics chipset is always the spoiler.

I don't think Chrome will get a lot of use at Google internally because if a employee's computer loses the network it's bricked with that OS.

I don't know if it's gray-market control or not. If so it could be understandable.

Leverage and tracking.

It was a great way to leverage w2k users out of that OS. Now the same with Win XP. MS needs your data for their Trusted Partners and Win XP just doesn't collect it like Vista and W7 does. No I don't want big brother tracking my computer activities. For those who don't know google it. Your being tracked when you use Vista and W7. MS can stuff it. Have fun with IE9 on your fully tracked and monitored OS.

China warns Google over uncensored search threat

The hand off is the real game...

Prediction. The whole conflict has been a smokescreen. The real plan is for Google to hand over it's technology to the Chinese via a "Chinese Firm" so that the filtering can go forward without Google being looking dirty. End of the deal is that Google can claim they're not doing it and China keeps it's control over it's portion of the internet blocking, filtering and tracking of the internet and it's citizens who use it.

Maximum Exposure maximum loss.

It no longer matters what we think. Google wants to stay and continue to maximize the exposure to getting their technologies stolen. This problem will take care of itself. China will get all the relevant tech they need from Google and then make being in China difficult for them. Google will then find themselves competing against China and their own technology.

USA. It's future tech that has fallen and can't get up

RIght about the US Gov not investing in the future. The Gov just shot down NASA from going forward with projects that would have created new technologies. It takes new technology for the future and the Mars and moon missions the US Gov stopped would have brought that. Yup the US is doomed to be the next third world if something about it's falling tech sector.

Hackers? Corporate ones? Both? We already know a certain Corporation, caughsonycaughcaugh, did it to it's customers willingly before...get were I'm going with this? Has some other corporation(any) committed an act of root kitting it's customers also. Has this patch stumbled upon it?

Wandering around the internet looking at this wonderful new achievement from Microsoft I think it may not be just Win XP.

"The majority of users who are complaining about the issue are on Windows XP, but some users in the thread mention this occurs for them on Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista."

That anoying little thing...ethics...

I was telling people at the time that I'll believe Google when I see them do it. Google is now proving the axiom that "business and ethics have nothing to do with each other" is their axiom as it is with many other's running major corporations. Doubtful Google's Execs would actually buck that trend.

Mozilla becomes latest to dump Mac OS X 10.4 support

MSTSD

This is the great "Meat Space vs Technology Space Discontinuity".

Compatibility loss from one version to the next of OSX comes so quickly now that it's becoming an issue. Real world users can't keep up and are beginning to fall off the cart. It's way worse than that now if you purchase software.

You have accumulated half a dozen aps on your OSX machine over the last year necessary to your project. Your project suddenly requires another app to finish things at this stage. You find your version of OSX is not supported now. In the full year you had YOUR machine a full version has come and gone. You have to buy a new machine to run the app your project needs to move toward completing but then your existing half dozen apps also don't run on that new machine. You can't afford to re-purchase them in versions that do. You realize you can't financially keep up with this rapid loss of backward compatibility with the rapid technology change. You either start looking for open source alternatives or give up.

HAHAHAHAHA.....!

Just because a software giant made it doesn't mean it works. Bing couldn't find it's own bum if it had a lazer pointer. I know. I've tried it. Why the heck do they think Microsoft is trying to buy Yahoo's search algorithms...which unfortunately is similarly ineffective IMHO.

This choice by Apple is so bad it had me laughing out loud for real the moment I found out. I'm still laughing as I type this. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.....!

btw there is another search engine called "Start Search" Amazingly it works. Maybe they should look into that first?

Yes Paris Hilton. She obviously runs Apple now. *(^o^)*

Graphics clues to graphics blues...

This looked interesting...but then like others sub-par net books this sports the uber awesome super fabulous "OpenGL failure" known as a "Intel Graphics Processor". To may program's Need OpenGL these days for manufactures to continue supplying computing devices like net books with the _deficient_ Intel _Graphics_ processors.

Perhaps the execs foisting these products are a bit clueless about the software market their devices are supporting these days

I like this direction. We do need a pocket computer that's not deficient in todays tech. It's my hope the next one has even more RAM and storage. Also good to see the very good Windows XP in use here. It would do MS well to keep it available just for this kind of device.

All your data and behavior patterns belong to marketing

Eh, I got free 25Gb storage with MSN's Hotmail/Live ID email whats-it thingy. It's the ebil MS but it's also got a &%$# load more than Google's scant 1Gb. Just don't use it for data files you'd consider critical or private. Both Google or MS scan the stuff to collect behavior pattern info on you to use for marketing of other businesses products at you or even sharing with other businesses.

Arrogance and the executives....

I work for a company like that. Being lied to and taken advantage of has become a daily issue and nothing short of bodily harm to the execs running the company and it's partner companies will deter it.

Nothing else the employees do deters the willingness of executives to financially rape and take advantage of them because of the extremes of the executive arrogance.

Just like a kid again? No I'll stick with XP....

I'm glad they worked the bugs out of their user data collecting system but I'm not inclined to wanting my mommy keeping up on my day to day activities much past the age of 19yrs old. Of course if you like your mommy knowing everything you do still then by all means use Vista or Windows 7 because Microsoft is collecting your data with it and you should feel just like a kid again.
