FWIW. This place is dusty and needs a new coat of paint.
HTC Unveils Revamped HTC One
Sense is much deeper than the launcher. It's like a cancer that spreads into all the menus and built in systems. I absolutely despise it and I just returned a One X because of it.

10th Annual System Administrator Appreciation Day
You assume that other professions don't have "appreciation days" when, in fact, they do. Also, you appear to think that SAs believe that they are more deserving than other professions. While I don't doubt that there are plenty of admins out there that hold an arrogant view like that, I also believe that the majority of professional sysadmins don't. I don't begrudge my boss bosses day, or our administrative assistant's secretaries day. It's just nice to be appreciated.
Working Calculator Created in LittleBigPlanet
Just an FYI: I bought the MGS4 bundle because I wanted backwards compatibility (my daughter has taken over my old PS/2) and I have yet to make it through MGS4. I'm told fans of the series absolutely love it, but so far it's been incredibly boring with long, drawn out (mostly skip-able, thankfully) cut scenes that make absolutely no sense. Whoever did them has absolutely no sense of pacing, and a cut scene that should be a minute or two is drawn out into 20 minutes with lots of unnecessary pauses in the dialog. It's pretty bad, IMO.
Otherwise, I'm loving the PS3 so far. I'm in on the LBP beta and it's a shitload of fun.
