There are a lot of people removed from reality
There are many people with an electronic toy addiction as perpetuated by all who profit from such anti-social behavior, ignorance and abuse. They are in complete denial and can't buy a clue.

Any source of means to pirate should be removed from the Net. As facilitators of piracy (see The Pirate Bay and others), are being prosecuted for their crimes, people are coming to understand that these online links are in violation of copyright law, and should be removed.
The PC market has basically matured and there is no need for a new PC every couple years for Biz or personal use. Mobile toys are all the rage atm, but they too will eventually plateau in sales volume when the next distraction arrives. There will always be a clueless market for worthless toys.
The days of a new Windoze O/S creating major PC hardware sales is gone. Many businesses are switching to Linux and don't need Microsucks crapware. Perhaps the worldwide economic meltdown has motivated more people to start using their brain instead of just being sheeple?
Their whole history has been one gimmick after another IMO with poor if any customer support for products of questionable quality. Unless the new CEO has some magic and they find a niche to fill, the cash will soon be gone because few businesses or consumers want to deal with an entity that may be out of business next week.
As noted this is the smart means to get a better return on your fixed assets. It provides tens of millions of dollars operating capital at below market rates and it has good tax advantages. It's all just a "paper deal".
AMD's recent wins for Xbox, PS4 and from many OE laptop builders will improve AMD's cash flow substantially in the not too distant future. Richland is actually shipping and OE systems with Richland should start to go on sale next month with more lower powered 17w Richland chips to start shipping next month to OEMs.
PayPal does tend to update their website in the U.S. fairly frequently which takes time to adjust to unless you're on it frequently. I do like some of the changes but not all. It's a process and different people think and work differently. There is no application that I know of that everyone 100% likes or is intuitive, because we don't all think the same.
This woman definitely had her act together and celebrating her gifts to mankind should be supported not maligned as a PC policy. If more people were contributors and less were takers, this world would be a much better place. I fully understand why she felt that teaching was her greatest joy.
As far as "Bugs" are concerned, the folks at Microsucks studied Hopper carefully. Then they injected millions of Bugs into their code and they have continued to do so in every new product, due to their carelessness and apathy. Unfortunately for Microsucks they missed the plot as Hopper wanted to remove Bugs, not inject them into the code. She wanted to simplify code, not make it more complex and hopelessly Bug ridden. Microsucks is a perfect example of a company and culture gone bad. By missing the plot from the beginning Microsucks has corrupted and defrauded the world for 25+ years.
You are incorrect. The judicial process is the same for Kim Dotcom as it is for anyone else accused of a crime. The full evidence is presented to him prior to trial. The extradition process only requires reasonable grounds for conviction. Extradition has nothing to do with finding a person guilty. It's a legal process to bring the accused before a judge who will decide if there is merit to the case. Justice is not served by allowing an alleged criminal to flee to a different geographic location to avoid judicial process. That is why extradition agreements exist.
Kim Dotcom seems to have created his own problems by hosting pirated materials. With his money and team of lawyers he will probably escape any serious punishment for copyright infringement.
