IE Drops To Single-Digit Market Share

kiddygrinder Re:More reprsentative stats please (390 comments)

lol, why would i hate firefox, it's the first browser that actually made MS stop pissing in their users' mouths and work on IE. you should fucking LOVE firefox, cause otherwise it's possible you'd be still using IE 6 right now.

IE Drops To Single-Digit Market Share

kiddygrinder Re:More reprsentative stats please (390 comments)

the writing's on the wall that their share price will take a bit of a kicking in the short term? how they replace balmer is probably more important than how windows 9 fares but i doubt it will be a big issue, windows 8 has been selling worse than vista so i doubt they'll be taking too many risks with 9.

Bursting the Filter Bubble

kiddygrinder Re:its more than just political sensitivity (136 comments)

this is the most annoying part of the AGW movement, moving to smarter sources of energy has a lot of benefits over just burning oil because "everything is probably fine". i foresee electric cars for example becoming the norm simply because there is a lot more room for improvement in the tech that will make them more efficient and powerful than fuel burners, and this is the easiest way to move forward for deniers and true believers alike.

Final Days For Australia's Analog TV

kiddygrinder Re:It's about control of information (192 comments)

that's not entirely true, there's a lot more fringe stuff like the multi-language channels and the NITV indigenous channel, especially on SBS and ABC. getting a 12 hr a day kids feed on ABC 2 is pretty useful, and a couple of 24 hr news channels that actually seem OK would probably be a boon if i bothered watching that stuff. not saying it's really increased my viewing time but it does actually make tv more useful.

Prison Is For Dangerous Criminals, Not Hacktivists

kiddygrinder Re:Sorry, but not here (337 comments)

without the possibility of rehabilitation prisons are a pointless endeavour. you would be better off simply executing the prisoners and getting on with things.

Prison Is For Dangerous Criminals, Not Hacktivists

kiddygrinder Re:Sorry, but not here (337 comments)

it's not all society, it's a feedback loop. politicians advertise tough on crime as a benefit, voters vote based on toughness on crime so politicians advertise how tough they are on crime ad nauseam
