NY Times Confident of 'First Click Free' Paywalls
Why is this modded funny? There are many examples like this. The NYT and the WSJ are among the best original sources out there. I believe if they disappear just because of this "I want everything on the internet for free" mentality, the overall quality of news on the internet - strike that - the quality of news everywhere would suffer greatly. They do the real work and don't just sit in their armchairs and watch some aggregator.
The information these papers provide and the quality in which they write it up and present it to us is easily worth it.
Take the price for the paper version, subtract paper, ink, delivery cost and whatnot and I'll pay it gladly if that enables them to maintain their overall quality of journalism.
This mindset that something has to be free if it's digital is really annoying.
Not all news are automatically put online and spread everywhere.

With the HTC Desire, when you enter the Sync Key the key is visible and what bothers me more, it get's stored in the keyboard dictionary as an unknown word. Why not handle it like a password as the desktop version does?
And when visiting http://www.google.com/ I wasn't automatically redirected to http://www.google.com/m. I don't know if this works with other websites.
Fan-Developed Ultima VI Remake Released
One reason for this may be, that just more people got computers and into gaming. I think it's not that nowadays there are more assholes out there than there were before, but today many (*sigh*) more of them are online and playing games. While in the 90s only people who were into tinkering with new technology, which requires having a at least moderate attention span and a certain amount of education, even knew about the existence of computer games, nowadays literally _everyone_ plays them. Add to that, that assholes tend to be very vocal, especially when they're online and anonymous, and you've got enough people to drag down the quality of multiplayer experiences overall.
