Facebook Releases Instagram Clone, Two Months After Acquisition

BriGal Old news (138 comments)

"and it's currently only available for iPhone and iPod Touch owners". Right. This was part of the FB app update for the droid 2 weeks ago. I got so confused when I first read this story yesterday because I knew I'd had it for awhile.

Spammers Moving To Disposable Domains

BriGal Re:Good, it's costing them money (147 comments)

They really aren't buying in bulk, though. I work for a registrar, and I go through accounts and domains randomly to suspend anything that looks fraudulent. Most of the domains are between 1-3 per customer account, and rarely more than 10.

Verizon Removes Search Choices For BlackBerrys

BriGal Re:Not for OS 5 (510 comments)

I have a Blackberry Pearl running v4.5 (I think? I'm still trying to figure out these smartphones) and I still have the same 4 providers as well. First thing I did when I saw this story was run and test out a few things. Even after clearing the cache, there is no Bing.

Low-Energy Laser Etching May Replace Fruit Labels

BriGal Won't help - produce codes (475 comments)

The etching may be all well and good for the brand names, but I believe most grocery stores use different produce codes. So the individual stores will still need to put stickers on.

Stargate Universe

BriGal Re:Hulu? (829 comments)

It detracts from the ratings. Unlike movies, where they claim torrents steal money from their pockets, shows depend on their viewers. The more legitimate viewers they get, the more likely the show will stay on the air. They can watch the viewers on TV, adding in +3 and +7 for DVR counts, and find out how many times it's been watched on iTunes and Hulu, along with other websites. What they can't count is how many people have torrented the show. More people torrenting mean less people being counted, which means lower ratings, which means cancelled shows. Torrent may be great for people outside of the country who won't see it, but within the viewing areas (in this case, US, Canada, and the UK), it hurts more than helps.
