Site news: Unique commenter handles coming


For The Love of God, NOOOOO 2.0!!!!!!!!

Please do not even start turning this into another MyFeceBook 2.0 wannabe friends site.

There is no glut in the market, no need to fill a void that does not exist.

Tweak the names so everyone is unique(just like everyone else) and step away from the control panel .

Mine's the one with the "Does Not Play Well With Others" patch on the back.

You will regret that, Joe.

Nerd Fight! After School Behind The Gym!

Disgusting turn of events, hopefully some oversight @ AMO will keep this chit from happening again. Read G's apology, I'll accept that. Where's Wlad's apology? I trust(ed) both for my Intertubes security, will be losing the ABP if it turns out he's just another prima donna programmer who can "do no wrong".

Mine's the one w/ the bulls-eye on the back.

Microsoft retires AutoRun (kinda, sorta)

Paris hates virii in her boot, too.

PC buyers fail to prove MS deceived in Vista 'Capable' suit

Gates Halo

RE: Ignorance

<quote>Your ignorant of the fact that Microsoft says "Vista capable" and the majority of the systems do not run Vista effectively.</quote>

True, even more ignorant is the fact that MS will upgrade any flavor of Vista to XP Pro nowadays. Call it delayed justice and stop paying them lawyers, the lawyers are the only ones who win in class action anyway.

US reality TV 'star' attacked fiancé with laptop, cat, apples


Post Cat Mortar Stress Disorder

Mr Penley will be emotionally scarred for life. Seen it before, a grown man suffering from PCMSD, deathly afraid of puss. Apparently, his sister threw cats at him as a child and he has been traumatized by felines, big and small, ever since. Not a wimpy man, mind you, but a manly, mountain man who's past-times include gutting wild game and bar fighting. Traumatic.

Mine's the one w/ the cat-apult in the pocket.

Canadian prof: Green IT is a waste of time


Green Thievery

I'm all for conservation and efficiency. I go out of my way to recycle b/c my condo association cannot sacrifice 2 guest parking spots to put in a green can, keep my thermostat low in the winter and high in the summer, hot water tank down to lowest setting, use my dishwasher as a glorified drying rack(single adult, takes me a week+ to produce enough dishes to run it). With that said, let me also say: the "Green *anything*" fad is just another scam. I'll give props to EnergyStar, but the new "green" wave is the same marketing BS we got in the '80s to get us to pay a premium for shittier products. Nothing more than the good 'ol "fear and consumption" tactic to sell more shit we don't need in the first place. If we were really concerned and amped about a solution we'd stop buying that crap from China with the high replacement rates(read: cheap shit for cheap price).

Stay scared, buy more, we're running out of oil(again, anyone remember the '70s?), the broken banks are the victims, we're all gonna die, better get that $.0001 Price Slash at Wal-Mart.

Mine's the green jacket without the designer label.

Microsoft kills off public availability of Windows 7 beta

Gates Horns

There Will Be No 7th Beta For 7

"Microsoft recently reiterated it would not bring out a second beta for Windows 7 but instead would move straight to the release candidate stage."

Hold on there, they had 3 betas for developers called Longhorn back in '05/'06, 2 years of public beta called "Vista" and "Vista SP1" since. Forget about the RCs...


Microsoft mojo deflated by Seinfeld Vista ads


Sure, The Ad Deflated Vista's Mojo

'Cuz we all know Vista was flying high prior to those poor excuses of marketing.

Next up: Mojave Experiment Redux... I can't believe it's not Windows 7!

Universal thaws out The Thing

Jobs Horns

@AC: Was I the only one to think...

Tsk, tsk Mr. AC.

Any proper geek knows Thing is just "Thing", while <i>The</i> Thing is the Carpenter masterpiece.

I'm afraid we're going to have to ask you for your Geek Badge and keyboard pending an investigation.

ShellHardwareDetection > AutoRun

I don't bother editing reg entries or GP, just disable SHD in the MMC and you're golden. Even prevents the ever-vigilant vendor(ahem...MS) exploits that find a way to Auto-Run despite your efforts.

I heard Paris's .com got an STD.

Windows 7 beta washes up on Pirate Bay


I Can't Believe It's Not Mojave!

It's Vista SP2 with a name change to disassociate all the negativity of their blundered roll-out. "Leaked" to the masses early for marketing purposes only.

Mine's the thinly veiled cloak.

They used 'em, you reeled: the year's most overused phrases

Paris Hilton

RE: you forgot "netbook"

Hallelujah, brother. Do these mindless devourers not realize that they can get a low-end Turion or "Dual Core" over the Atom-crap for <$100 difference in price?

Forget about the larger screen, larger keyboard, larger HD, more memory, faster CPU... if I were a glutton I'd still opt for a dual celeron over an atom or a samuel or whatever they're powering these craptops with.

Paris, her head is in the "cloud"s, too.
