top Mozilla's 2013 Report: Revenue Up 1% To $314M; 90% From Google
So why are they moving to Yahoo again?
top Sony To Take On Netflix With Playstation Vue
No, Sony's service works on iOS devices and they plan on rolling it out across other non-Sony devices.
top Italian Supreme Court Bans the 'Microsoft Tax'
Just don't have software loaded on the PC at all, and include a disc that images your computer if you do agree that you want it at retail/on order.
top Days After Shooting, Canada Proposes New Restrictions On and Offline
So saying "A government MP offers the scant assurance that this legislation is not "trauma tainted," as it was drafted well prior to this week's instigating incidents" is definitely no consolation. Canadians should be happy that they decided to go nuts prior to this event rather than after? Do they want a cookie for that?
top Ubuntu 14.10 Released With Ambitious Name, But Small Changes
I finally switched to Mint with Cinnamon and love it. I appreciate what Ubuntu has done to make Linux usable on the desktop, but in that spirit I am now supporting Mint, which seems to have taken over that position with a great interface that promises consistency.
top Proposed Penalty For UK Hackers Who "Damage National Security": Life
Why is this only being limited to acts "on a computer"? If they feel so strongly about it, why doesn't it apply to any such act regardless of a computer being involved?
top 'Microsoft Lumia' Will Replace the Nokia Brand
Part of their deal when they bought out a subsection of Nokia was that they couldn't use the Nokia name on such products.
top Ubisoft Claims CPU Specs a Limiting Factor In Assassin's Creed Unity On Consoles
That would explain frame rate, if they couldn't get their physics/AI routines to work fast enough (although they could use interpolation routines to alleviate that), but does not explain the rendering resolution. Do they expect us to believe they had the CPU working on shaders or rasterization? Even post-processing effects would be handled by the GPU.

top Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems
The worst part is when shortcut keys and mnemonics are changed because of a different language, I navigate by keyboard and have to re-learn everything on other systems and guess what the right command is if I don't know the language.

Couldn't they just have a USB ID/Bluetooth ID whitelist?

That and Nickelodeon is where kids rule.
top Conservative Groups Accuse FCC of Helping Net Neutrality Advocates File Comments
They're all being disregarded anyway, what are they complaining for?
top Lost Opportunity? Windows 10 Has the Same Minimum PC Requirements As Vista
Exactly, I don't want an OS that's a resource hog. As for smartphones? They can't keep running at top speed for long before getting heat throttled, or the battery dying. It's apples and oranges. And they still have moments of slowdown and stuttering with all that power. I'd rather have a smooth experience where the OS stays out of the way.
top My toy collection is ...
My parents didn't believe in toys. We had part of a slinky, but I straightened it.
top Where Whistleblowers End Up Working
Start a web site that can serve as a talent pool for people like this. Many people would consider them american heroes, and if they had more visibility, maybe they would get hired faster. If they show up on a background check, the employers would be more likely to know why and give them a pass.
top Google Quietly Nixes Mandatory G+ Integration With Gmail
What do they expect me to do? I don't even have a phone! I'm glad I created my account before this crap.
top Debian Switching Back To GNOME As the Default Desktop
Yeah, still using it. Gnome 3 with the applications menu and window list turned on, Thunar as the file manager because they are removing title bars on windows for some reason. I'm getting fed up with it, probably going to move to Mate or Cinnamon. I used KDE3 on Fedora before, but something was always flaky with it, and they didn't have good GUI tools for things like setting up WiFi at the time. It was back when Ubuntu was paving the way for the desktop that I switched to Gnome (love having access to Debian repos and apt is awesome), they had a lot of good GUIs that integrated well with Gnome but weren't on the KDE side of things yet. I might give KDE a spin and kick the tires now that I think about it...
top Secret Service Critics Pounce After White House Breach
It's one of them fancy sentence spicer-uppers!
top Logitech Aims To Control the Smart Home
Raspberry Pi and Arduino already exist and do the job handily. My home's already covered from CCTV to lighting & temperature to intercoms and it all integrates with XBMC scripts that both control and notify on every TV in the house, powered by (you guessed it) more/Raspberry Pis. Controllable through tablets and smart phones as well as my TV remote. All hard-wired aside from the wireless endpoint, and no lousy third party servers that everything gets uploaded to.
top iOS 8 Review
I don't want an expensive phone that I don't even need because I don't want a cellphone.
