A year from now, this bubble will have burst. Not a moment too soon either.
Gimp 2.8 Finally Released
Chromatic adaptation possibly...
Gimp 2.8 Finally Released
"....Childish and offensive?" GNU Image Manipulation Program was GIMP long before P.C became vogue and began screwing up this country. Deal.

Ask Slashdot: What Can You Do About SOPA and PIPA?
Follow the money.
Ask Slashdot: Mirrorless, Interchangeable Lens Camera Advice?
"The fact that you're actually looking through the lens doesn't really matter much."
Except for framing, composition, inspecting DoF [crop sensors mangle this, sadly]. Not minor things, those.
As for CCDs,CMOS is more likely these days, btw.
CarrierIQ Tries To Silence Security Researcher
What? It hasn't yet been posted?
Wait for it...
Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.
McAfee Disclaims Claims of Chinese Involvement in 'Shady RAT'
You're right, plausible deniability and all.
As an aside, anytime I set a box in the DMZ and review access logs, the majority of IPs attempting access are from CN. Which tells me there are LOTS of pwned boxes in CN...or...they're up to something.
I vote for the latter. Just sayin'...
IBM Did Not Invent the Personal Computer
The book to which you are referring is:
IBM and the Holocaust
The Strategic Alliance between Nazi Germany and America's most powerful corporation
Published by Crown Publishers, N.Y., 2001
Why You Shouldn't Panic Over Mac Malware
Shouldn't citing Gartner immediately cast doubt on the story?
Facebook's Broad Patent On Digital Media Tagging
Agree 100%. <rant> Off topic and all that good stuff but, on a purely gut level with NO rational explanation, when I look at someone's eyes and the reading is "dead inside" my level of mistrust takes an immediate spike. As far as I'm concerned, anything associated with Zuckerburg is bad news. </rant>
IE9 Flaunts Hardware-Accelerated Canvas
Great posting but as an aside: if your buddy's box is taking THAT long to boot to a "usable" desktop ["usable" may have different meaning to each of us], there is something wrong with his box. Seriously.
New Fossil Sheds Light On Lucy's Family Tree
And moderation is jacked as well, since yesterday. What used to be a simple process [choose the mod selection and it would be immediately applied] is now b0rked, choose the mod selectiopn and nothing happens, no update, no Apply button at the bottom of the page, nada.

BSA Says Software Theft Exceeded $51B In 2009
Spot on. The BSA has a vested interest in making certain the numbers are huge thereby backing up their position/efforts/goals. The further insult is in assuming their intended audience [and even unintended] believes them because, well, "Who else is going to undertake such a study so you might as well trust us."
Which Linux For Non-Techie Windows Users?
Quick nod to PCLinuxOS here. Out of the box simple, straight-forward, Windows-ish enough that even those relatives who have made the transition from Win2k/XP had minimal issues/adjustment time to get comfortable - seamless and painless, as the OP requires. Has a great built-in assortment of apps [covers all the bases outlined above] and just plain works and very well at that, even on somewhat older hardware. Gets my vote.
