Apple Threatens Bistro Over "AppleADay" Name

socsoc Re:Awesome journalism (301 comments)

ITworld has repeatedly embarrassed the hell out of themselves and is a joke. For the longest time deep links to their site would redirect to a mobile entry page when viewed from a mobile device, I stopped visiting them entirely. They really have no business reporting on anything related to technology because they continually show how little they understand and how much they try to get impressions (yay another slide show!).

socsoc The cloud? (253 comments)

Do we really need to bring buzzwords like the cloud into this? It's a file transfer protocol, aptly named, for transferring data to another system. It could be in a cloud or in a cave for all I care, as long as it has port 21 open.
