The last time I used a dial-up modem was...

Wolfstar I note it didn't say what for... (410 comments)

I use the cursed things daily. They're in the vast majority of standalone credit card terminals, and they all need to be downloaded/updated via dialup.

You have NO IDEA how much unfun it is to try and use a damned dialup modem at 14.4 over a VoIP line. No Carrier, Lost Carrier, Bad Rx Comm, hell even No Dial Tone some times.

Shoot me now...

Ask Slashdot: Where Is the Universal Gesture Navigation Set?

Wolfstar How about that Autocorrect? (177 comments)

The one thing I'd like to see changed is autocorrect behavior. Seriously, who thought hitting "space" after an autocorrect word comes up would correct it, but tapping the corrected word would dismiss it? Really?

I admit, I haven't tried it on an Android device (the nook being my only one), but on iOS it's annoying as hell.

Scariest Agency?

Wolfstar You've got to be kidding me. (625 comments)

Seriously?! DHS, scarier than the KGB?!?!

You people need to do two things.

1. Take a look at what KGB's finest have been doing since the collapse of the Soviet Union. (Putin, for example.)

2. Actually study some history. You looked at a KGB agent wrong and you were disappeared. Your family never, ever saw you again, and didn't know what had happened to you. You were either dead or forced to a life of hard labor in the coldest, harshest locations in the world.

Before you answer this, you should be asking yourself how many people each agency is responsible for making vanish.

Wolfstar (131012) writes "Apparently, sometime this afternoon, September 21st, Yahoo's Toolbar and Companion addons for Internet Explorer blew up for some reason. The Yahoo! Toolbar for IE Forums are overflowing with questions and complaints of the issue, and at least one cable ISP, the one I work for, was buried under an avalanche of users with this problem, many of which were not even aware the Yahoo Toolbar was installed. As of now, no apparent response from Yahoo on the issue, and apparently a lot of ISPs have given permission to their reps to disable or uninstall the toolbar."
