Verizon Defends Doubling of Early Termination Fee

Butterforge Alternative services (319 comments)

Go Prepaid! Cheaper rates and no contract! Boost Mobile - $50/month for unlimited data usage. Metro PCS - $45/month for unlimited data usage.

Except if you want to get a new phone, there is no discount. The Samsung Finesse, for example, costs $300. Out of pocket.

New Dating Sites Match People Through DNA Tests

Butterforge Culture vs. Genetics (278 comments)

Sorry, but I will continue to subscribe to dating services that allow me to find like-minded individuals, because my education in anthropology has taught me that cultural traits like fidelity and political affiliation are not genetic.

Oops, did I just admit to using dating services?

The Future of Indie MMOGs

Butterforge Re:GA (69 comments)

I think I am in your minority. I want an mmorpg that is more about having fun and enjoying some virtual roll play than hours and hours of grinding.

Oklahoma, Vatican Take Opposite Tacks On Evolution

Butterforge Re:OU Student Here (1161 comments)

anti-abortion posters on campus

The word is "anti-choice." No one is really "pro abortion," except maybe a few inconsequential lunatics. What anti-abortionists are fighting against is the right to choose, not the right to have recreational abortions - I don't think those exist. So those of us who believe in a woman's right to have control of the insides of her body call it an anti-choice stance. Anyway, Oklahoma sounds like a terrible place for the progressive and diverse. I hope Dawkins gets to speak there. The QA session would be great to see.

The First Federally Certified Voting System

Butterforge Do we trust federal certification? (68 comments)

That would be like the beef industry certifying its own standards. Or for an analogy that I understand better - video game publishers rating their own games.

The Best Computer Mice In Every Category

Butterforge 1. Logitech MX1100 - Best general mouse? (246 comments)

I was once a proud owner of a Logitech MX1100. I can't say I'm so proud anymore.

It was an awesome input device, until a couple of months after I bought it the mouse started acting squirrely. The cursor would stop reacting to the mouse every few seconds, and clicks would either not register or would register as double clicks. The receiver was only 2-3 feet away from the mouse, with no major obstructions besides the computer desk. I changed the batteries so many times. I even bought those fancy Radio Shack batteries advertised as special for computer peripherals. Needless to say fresh batteries were no help.

Unrelated to the review of best computer mice, but relevant to Logitech's wireless peripherals, I had a miniature wireless laser mouse for laptops that did the same thing.
