You quote the article but apparently still haven't read it. I sure hope you won't sue me for saying your comment is stupid.

Zune HD Twitter App Censors Tweets For You!

azior Re:Who cares? (155 comments)

I think the submitter plans on not using it, and most likely submitted the story to inform others, should they wish to not use it as well.

I think the submitter should elaborate on what this "wrong" way of rubbing is. Just to inform other, should they wish to be rubbed in that way.

I for one welcome our new wrong-rubbing overlords

Dad Delivers Baby Using Wiki

azior Re:For Once a Good Use of the Web (249 comments)

He was quoted saying: "That's it baby, that's the spot. Just move nice and slow. Getting a bit shy now? Oh, you're such a tease. I like it when you go down like that. Oh baby, are you coming? Yeah you're coming. Almost there... Hold on I'm getting there... Oh there it is!... It's a girl! A cute little girl!"

MacBook Mod Gives Base Station Chassis New Purpose

azior Re:Nanny cam of sorts (129 comments)

"The iSight/mic holes in the front panel are hard to see and this could be used as a nanny cam of sorts."

Make sure you load it with porn that "happens" to appear when you touch any button at all, and send me the tapes.

IBM Takes a (Feline) Step Toward Thinking Machines

azior Re:"100,000 times as much as your computer has" (428 comments)

If you imagine that the human brain is about 100 times better than a cat brain, your computer equivalent would have millions of processors and xenobytes of memory! ...but would also really suck at math

Some Early Adopters Stung By Ubuntu's Karmic Koala

azior Re:Release cycles? (1231 comments)

For me KK is awesome, because I finally have accelerated graphics on my Dell Mini 9. I tried setting it up on jaunty a couple of times before but just assumed that my netbook didn't have the right chipset or enough graphics memory to run compiz. Now my netbook has all the benefits of the Ubuntu installation on my MBP (avant window navigator being one of my favourite things about it, 3D desktop cube and wibbly windows next), and more.

Same here. On previous versions my Toshiba laptop needed at least 25% of CPU for X alone, everything was stuttering. With the Koala it's all silk and smooth and it looks nice. It's slower in comparison to XP, but I had a lot more trouble getting XP to work right on the laptop. Koala works out of the box, even with the crappy atheros wlan card that never worked on previous versions.

When has that ever happened?

Windows 95.

This scientific method proves that your precious Windows 95 is actually pretty mediocre and Windows 7 is a piece of crap

Mozilla Unblocks Microsoft's .NET Addon

azior Re:Microsoft's updated advisory (275 comments)

The core of the whole thing and what has pissed most people off on both sides is that both MS and Mozilla took action without customer consent, effectively choosing for us. First MS for installing it, then Mozilla for disabling it.

MS installed it without asking

Mozilla asked if you wanted to disable it

TomTom Announces an Open Source GPS Technology

azior Re:Excellent (177 comments)

There is a growing problem in the UK from truck drivers using domestic GPS units and not units meant for the haulage industry, which are more expensive. The industry specific units avoid small lanes and villages, as well as height clearances, but the domestic ones do not. I shall leave the thought of what occurs up to your imaginations.

My imagination? Just a parallelized system of autonomic vehicles, with OpenGPS knowing where everybody is, information about your vehicle, OpenLR to know what routes are available for your vehicle, smart distributed anti-congestion technology to avoid traffic jams, and ssh to monitor and control your vehicle...

Firefox 4.0 Goes Chrome, New UI In Q4 2010

azior Re:Function before form (556 comments)

For personal reasons, I do not browse the web from my computer. (I also have not net connection much of the time.) To look at page I send mail to a demon which runs wget and mails the page back to me. It is very efficient use of my time, but it is slow in real time.
