Ask Slashdot: Unity/Gnome 3/Win8/iOS — Do We Really Hate All New GUIs?
Maybe, the problem is that none of the "new" GUI's are really all that new. I see little more then the current whack a mole interface that has plagued the whole GUI interface from the beginning. The only new interface I have heard of is Apple's Siri.
Officials Say "Capes For the Unemployed" Plan Not Super
I remember that. Actually at my school it wasn't a separate line it was a glowing orange ticket that was different from the tickets for the regular meals.
Utah To Teach USA is a Republic, Not a Democracy
And so continues the take over of the US by the corrupt political parties. Soon the ruling party will outlaw the other party. They've already made it practically illegal to be an independent.
I want more choices

China Says Google Pledged To Obey Censorship Demands
I don't see how this is bowing to Chinese pressure. Once someone clicks one extra link they have access to the same information the rest of us have.
Google has set an example that the rest of the world needs to follow.
Firefox 4.0 Beta Candidate Available
I agree with the statement that Simplicity and speed should always be priority #1. I have switched browsers frequently through the years and always for the same reason. A browser that was faster and whose main goal was to display HTML pages.
I moved to Phoenix because its start time was low and it was simple. At one point I even used the Java Web Browser for the same reason.
However, Firefox has become slower over time. This prompted my switch to chrome. I am sure that I will switch again when chrome becomes too slow (Uzbl or Surf look good)
It would be nice to see Firefox return to its roots.

Microsoft Office 2010, Dissected
I've never understood that argument. I see that my documents are safer on the web on Google Servers then they are bouncing around on my laptop in the back of my car. I doubt that Google ever allows employees to take home backup tapes like the State of Ohio did until they were stolen
I really think laptops with important data on them are more of a threat to privacy then Google will ever be.

Fake Antivirus Peddlers Outpacing Real AV Firms
I always find it funny when I get a popup from my browser on Linux asking if I would like a anti-virus scan. Sometimes it will show me how my C: drive is corrupted and would I like to pay for a version of their anti virus software. One of these even offered to replace my system32.dll .
This just shows how fake these scans really are
