Critics Call For Probe Into Google Government Ties

Iburnaga Quite frankly my dear, (289 comments)

To be frank, if someone is broadcasting unencrypted data then Google has done no wrong by mining that information. Had they of been actively circumventing encryption to do so I could see a case in that but this was naked data. You don't sue someone for invasion of privacy when you paint your home with your secrets.

Windows 8 To Be Released In October 2012

Iburnaga Wololo (337 comments)

Perhaps they'll make Windows 8 more compatible with XP programs. Though I do find it upsetting that companies don't update their software on a regular basis to work with more secure platforms. It's one thing to not fix something that works, it's another to still be using IE6.

Microsoft Admits Is a Contender

Iburnaga Need (480 comments)

It'll be hard for MS Office to come up with something that would make someone want to change over or at least pay full price for MS Office. While I don't know if I could see college campuses and larger business places switching to Open Office I could see many small businesses switch. Even Google Docs is a contender against Microsoft for me personally. I just don't need everything these office suites suggest I need.

Study Finds Most Would Become Supervillians If Given Powers

Iburnaga Example (419 comments)

Go in a sandbox game, turn on god mode. I don't think you'll be helping old ladies across the street. Personally, when I have a massive amount of power in a game I'm pretty much a dick unless there's the incentive of more power. Black and White 2 for instance, I'm always Good aligned until the end of a map, then I just don't care and start chucking people around I rule the map bitches. You can see this in everyday life too, people with quite a lot of power being pretty close to what one would define as supervillainish.

The combination stove, space heater, blowtorch computer! I imagine we would still desire some amount of cooling or at least shielding from the heat but this is an interesting development.
