Forbes Blasts Latests Windows 7 Patch as Malware

Stormwatch A 1990s classic joke (228 comments)

With the recent problems being encountered by Windows users all across the country, people are begin to ask themselves if windows is a virus. In response to the high demand for an answer to that question a study was done and concluded the following.

1. Viruses replicate quickly.
Windows does this.

2. Viruses use up valuable system resources, slowing down the system as they do so.
Windows does this.

3. Viruses will, from time to time, trash your hard disk.
Windows does this.

4. Viruses are usually carried, unkown to the user, along with valuable programs and systems.
Windows does that too.

5. Viruses will occasionally make the user suspect their system is too slow (see 2) and the user will buy new hardware.
Same with Windows, yet again.

Maybe Windows really is a virus.

Nope! There is a difference!

Viruses are well supported by their authors, are frequently updated, and tend to become more sophisticated as they mature. So there! Windows is not a virus.

Mozilla's 2013 Report: Revenue Up 1% To $314M; 90% From Google

Stormwatch Re:Wait, 314 million per year? (161 comments)

Are you kidding me? IE's interface is utter shit, as bad as Chrome. At least on Firefox you can set it up to a modicum of normalcy, especially with the Classic Theme Restorer add-on.

Nowadays it's not called UI, but UX. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that interfaces are turning into shit.

Sweden Considers Adding "Sexism" Ratings To Video Games

Stormwatch Re:More detailed ratings are a good thing (642 comments)

They sweep it under the rug because most violent crimes in Sweden, particularly rape, are committed by the tiny minority of Muslim immigrants -- and no one wants to be labeled a racist or xenophobe.

Stormwatch Re:Apple users were always homos (764 comments)

Still to this day I can't fathom why anyone pays so much for a name

True. I'm puzzled that no one has sued the bastard. I doubt there was ever a more blatant case of breach of fiduciary duty.

Google Changes 'To Fight Piracy' By Highlighting Legal Sites

Stormwatch Re:alternatives (160 comments)

Good grief. "Abstinence-only sex education" is like swimming lessons where they teach nothing but how to stay out of the water.

Apple Doesn't Design For Yesterday

Stormwatch Far from the worst change in Yosemite (370 comments)

A little font change is far from the worst change in Yosemite. Now many apps now do not have a title bar!

Whatever imbecile made that decision has absolutely no place in interface design.

Stormwatch Re:Hockey puck mouse (370 comments)

People always mention that mouse... but fail to mention that the original iMac's keyboard was also utter shit. I mean $5 Chinese no-brand awful. Particularly sad when you remember how good their old Extended II was.

Stormwatch writes "Like we hadn't enough reasons to hate Sony... Lik-Sang.com, possibly world's best-renowned online videogame store, has gone out of business after multiple legal actions by electronics behemoth Sony. This sets a very dangerous precedent for import retailers everywhere."
