Are You Better At Math Than a 4th (or 10th) Grader?

JiveDonut Summary is a little misleading (845 comments)

The test that the school board person took was for tenth graders. The sample questions linked are from two entirely different tests. The first three are for fourth graders and the second three are for eighth graders.

Google Patches 30 Chrome Bugs, Adds Instant Pages

JiveDonut Re:Does instant pages pump up the hit count? (103 comments)

Yes it does. I have a a very low traffic blog so I can see the results easily. Doing a search where my posts come up in the first page of results causes each page to register two pageviews in the blogger stats for each one.

JiveDonut Re:What scrapers? (238 comments)

AT&T Sues Verizon Over "Map For That" Ads

JiveDonut Re:Good (249 comments)

Disagree completely. I think the ads are quite obvious in that

A) It clearly states it is a 3G coverage map

and

B) There is a sentence on the bottom of the screen that says that voice and data service are available outside the 3G coverage area.

IIRC, the ad says "3G" about 1 brazillion times as well.

The quote is "y'all must be the government people".

One of my favorites, too.
