Apple Reportedly Luring Ex-Google Mappers With Jobs
"He has not released it yet due to crashing issues but states 'it mostly works.'"
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
SOPA Provisions Being Introduced Piecemeal From Lamar Smith
How could Lamar do this? I strongly suspect this to be a javelin to the heart of internet democracy, thrown by Lamar with his limp-wristed throwing style.

Researchers 'Map' Android Malware Genome
" help shape a new way of fighting malware, learning from the lessons of the PC generation and its traditional anti-malware products. "
"Remember how Slashdot spent 10+ years mocking Windows for being a malware-laden cesspool of unremovable OEM junkware with an antivirus industry built around it?"
Yep, came here to basically say the same thing. I can't believe my phone would need a virus scanner. What's next? Android Security Essentials 2012?
Is Siri Smarter Than Google?

Google Earns $2 Per Handset; Apple, $575
"So what Google makes on Android is still a whole lot more than what it makes on iPhones."
You sure about that? Google earns 80% of its mobile revenue from iOS, just 20% from Android.
New Samsung TV Watches You Watching It
I'll go out on a limb here and say:
This TV is going to end up capturing so much footage of bored men fapping to porn.
Michael Bay To Remake TMNT As Aliens
"but now Megan Fox's ass has probably had 15 surgeries and looks like it's made of plastic, much like the rest of her. I'll pass."
She's obviously way below your standards, with her sharp knees and all. We can't all be lucky enough like you to have had Natalie Portman pour hot grits into our underwear.
Should Snatching an iPhone Be a Felony?
"...detects it as an "entertainment device""
Since when are entertainment devices all toys? I get entertainment from a variety of things, like driving a car really, really fast around a track on the weekends. I play golf with friends where I use an app on my iPhone to judge the distance to the pin. The device I'm staring at right now to type in this message entertains me.
So, cars, golf clubs, mobile computers and desktop computers are toys?
Business Cards the Latest Internet Casualty
Every time I get a business card I start quoting the American Psycho business card scene.
"Wow, nice card buddy, it looks similar to mine. Just without the Cillian Braille font."
I've actually had a few people catch on to it. :)

USS Enterprise Takes Its Final Voyage
"The "bible thumpers" have been serving in the US military since before there was a US. Show them some respect."
How can you be serving in the US military before there was a US?
Also, people that like to fuck have been using boats a lot longer than the bible has been around. Show them some respect.
Meet The Man Who Designed a Tablet Computer 15 Years Before the iPad
"Samsung doesn't have their plugs and button/s in the same place as the iPad, and thus, it's not a copy."
I'm legally fucking BLIND without my glasses and even I can barely tell the difference between this and an Ipod. That's including the BOX AND THE DEVICE.
Apple Unveils New iPad
"Without Steve Jobs doing the dramatics, watching the Live Blog was almost as exciting as Watching Grass Grow."
Tim Cook may be as wooden as a door, but that man knows distribution. Jobs may have had the charisma, but Cook deserves a lot of the credit getting Apple to where it is today.

Apple Rips Off Rejected App, Says Wireless Sync Developer
"Secondly, the logo combines the wireless logo (which is standard and is not an invention of this student) with the sync logo (two arrows round a circle) which is again standard and predates this student's app.
Someone trolled "fanboi" but let's take a look at that logo...
Hmm, Apple Airport - released in 1999 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AirPort). Note that wireless icon there, it looks rather familiar, eh? If you click the picture, you'll note the original picture was uploaded in April 2007 (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/archive/a/a0/20110415032314%21Connectwaves_20070109.png), months before the iPhone was released.
Might just be a coincidence, right?
Well, what about iSync? Uses the icon as depicted here. Looks familiar too! It's only been in use since 2003, so his "original" artwork is obviously compromised.
Damn, dirty Apple and their stealing of their icons!
