aahpandasrun focus (127 comments)

aahpandasrun pirate ship (108 comments)

I like to imagine that the Pirate Bay servers are located on a pirate ship that pulls up anchor and sets sail to another part of the world when they run into legal trouble.

aahpandasrun too soon (41 comments)

Tech sites love to post over and over again about these new Facebook features. But by the time they actually roll out to users everyone's forgotten about them.

Best Buy Follows Yahoo in Banning Remote Work

aahpandasrun they have a point (317 comments)

I hate to admit that they have a point. It's easy to slack when you're not in the office with your boss looking over your shoulder.

And I still know nobody that currently uses or has ever used Microsoft Messenger or MSN. It was exclusively AIM for us. I hear it's popular in certain regions though, but MSN was always one of the first things I uninstalled.

Apple Adds Samsung Galaxy SIII To Its Ban List

aahpandasrun this is bad (553 comments)

I'm not liking that Apple is using the courts to try and take out their #1 competitor in the smartphone market. It's VERY anti-competitive.
