Am I the only one...
...a little shocked that it will take the programme $87m to not fly shuttles in 2012. Sounds like a bargain.
Black helicopter? Because it's cheaper.

Even looks like they are serious about it working to opt-out.

There might be a non-sinister explanation. A lot of the work Google does is related to quality, so anyone in the anti-spam team, AdWords quality, fraud detection, search quality, etc. At http://www.justlanded.com we have seen Google servers pretend to be different O/Ss and user agents from the same IP at the same times. Yahoo do the same stuff and from time to time we have to unblock their IPs when they use things like Wget to pull down thousands of pages (typical email harvesting or scraper behaviour).
People will see black helicopters everywhere... that's not to say they won't be launching a distro or some other MicrosoftWhack though...
Zero troll content, sorry. Translation of the first two options on the screenshot for you:
( ) Without antivirus protection [included in the price]
( ) Without antivirus protection - Spanish [add €0.01]
( ) MacAfee - 30 day trial - Spanish [add €0.01]
You're right about one thing though, "And I don't even speak Spanish."
You need to get hold a browser plugin to automatically remove any words with more than 3 syllables or outside the vocab of an average McDonald's employee. You would benefit from a short - and undoubtedly more pleasant - read of the article; and the rest of the world wouldn't have to read your ADD-fuelled complaints.
The article said, "comScore has no explanation for the popularity of France Telecom, but we think it has something to do with the company's recent launch of its Orange mobile and internet service provider south of the Pyrenees."
I was taking the piss. Either the reporter was asleep at the keyboard or comScore did something equally stupid and put Spain figures in their LatAm analysis. Either way there is a touch of the Henson knocking around (viz your question about muppets). Clear (or still slightly muddy)?
And for Webster Phreaky:
Sorry, you will find that most people regard Latin America to be the part of the Americas where Latinate (or Romance as they are also known as) languages are spoken. In case you were not paying attention, this is the bit below the US on the map (you know, the leeetle countries where the CIA has been overthrowing elected governments and otherwise intefering until it got distracted by the Middle East). Don't believe me, go find Latin America on a map or look up a definition.
Although you may be 75% Italian, you show 100% ignorance of the fact that Latin gave birth to a bunch of languages; including (just in case you can't work this out for yourself), Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and French.
Felicitas in inscitia.
The designation 'Latin' is more to do with the roots of the launguage people speak that your irrational - and frankly fascist - comments about Mexicans. Que te chupan tu madre, pendejo...
"comScore has no explanation for the popularity of France Telecom, but we think it has something to do with the company's recent launch of its Orange mobile and internet service provider south of the Pyrenees."
I have quite a few Spanish friends that get hacked off when they are in the US and when they identify where they are from, people screw up thier faces trying to place the country somewhere between Bolivia and Guatemala. That's besides the fact that if they speak with an accent, people think they are Mexican.
I think you might find that either comScore are muppets as they have included Spain in the 'Latin American' market or the launch of Orange in Spain (which to your credit you identified with correct geographical info) will not have done much for South and Central American traffic.
So when will you become more reponsible journalists? This poor boy must have been confused by your ample iPhone coverage. His fruitless efforts to acquire a Jesus Phone had him criss-crossing Auckland from chapel to church, which clearly drove him to distraction. The inevitable disaster was then but a step away.
Please start an appeal on the site for a rescue fund for the 'Victims of Jobs', both young and old, deluded and unhinged. Maybe Steve will be able to contribute a few cents from the proceeds of his illegally backdated stock options (did ya see him get slammed up for theft, did ya?).
