New DOOM Game Not Dead: Beta Comes With Wolfenstein Pre-Order
that was completely intentional.. the goal was to build mood and suspense through the lack of visibility.. they accomplished this. things like the 'duct-tape' mod kind of ruined the atmosphere :(
If that is the case, then why did they made the "duct tape" permanent in the BFG Edition?. I think there are better ways to create suspense.

Acer Pulls Back From Windows To Focus On Android and Chromebook
Unless of course, they keep running with their blinders on.
Like refusing to reinstate the start menu on Windows 8.1 and forcing that metro crap instead of listening to their customers?
PC Sales See 'Longest Decline' In History
2 different purchases, and subsequent returns. 1 Toshiba, 1 Lenovo
64 bit bios on both
Do you have the models? I still do not believe that Secure Boot cannot be turned off.
PC Sales See 'Longest Decline' In History
WTF are you talking about? Every Win8 branded system I have seen has the option to disable Secure Boot. IIRC Microsoft requires that the computer has the ability to switch it off to grant the Win8-Certified Logo. That is of course, except Windows RT devices, which have nothing to do with what we are talking about.
Microsoft Reads Your Skype Chat Messages
Damn you Microsoft, what is wrong with fishing?? after this probably hunting URLs will be frowned upon by skype
ZDNet Proclaims "Windows: It's Over"
Your "every 2nd Windows OS sucks" logic is flawed, since your list is incomplete. Here is, in my opinion, a more complete list:
Windows 3.0 - Kind of sucked
Windows 3.1 - Great
Windows 95 - Sucked until OSR2. Then it was pretty good.
Windows 98 - Sucked
Windows 98 SE - Great
Windows 2000 - Awesome
Windows ME - Im not even going to comment on this one
Window XP - Sucked until SP2. Then it was awesome
Windows Vista - Sucked and still sucks after 2 service packs
Windows 7 - Awesome
Windows 8 - Great OS underneath a nearly unusable UI
Wiping a Smartphone Still Leaves Data Behind
The author used the last iPhone (3G) running the last iOS version (4) that would exhibit such behavior. It seems a contrived test.
An upgrade to iOS 5 would fix the problem on the 3G. On newer phones the encryption key needed to access the data is destroyed, so the problem never would have occurred.
Sorry, but the iPhone 3G tops out at version 4.1.2. The 3GS, on the other hand, does have support for iOS 6, if I remember correctly.
Galaxy S 4 Dominates In Early Benchmark Testing
Unfortunately that means you will be stuck with the Android version that comes with your device until Samsung and your carrier decide to upgrade it. That takes a loong time after Google releases updates. I have a Galaxy SII running the latest version of Android (4.2.2), but if I had not rooted it and switched ROMs, it would be running 4.0.4.
Kingston Introduces 1TB Flash Drive

Critic Cites Revenge of the Sith As "Generation's Greatest Work of Art"
I once knew a kid who, whether through a mental disability or through general weirdness, liked to smear his poop around places in public. I would consider him a greater artist than George Lucas, except for the fact his works could be considered an imitation of Revenge of the Sith.
Oh, you said greater artist.... never mind

Agreed, however most criminals aren`t going for a lot. If they can take a couple of LED TVs, basic jewelry and assorted crap, its worth for them.

Linus Torvalds Will Answer Your Questions
I was not attacking your question. I was poking a little fun a the whole Linux-GNU/Linux controversy, and remembered reading sometime ago on Wikipedia about Linus' opinion on the matter, where he said using the name GNU/Linux was "ridiculous".
