I don't understand what you are trying to imply by contrasting the old way without intermediate vs the new way with intermediate certs. Surely, its better with the intermediates as the root cert that signs it should be and can be used less often and stored in cold storage somewhere.

Eh, They cancelled my account years ago after my router screwed up and started sending them updates to them as fast as it could. They thought it was a DOS attempt or something. It was really just my US Robotics DSL modem telling me it wanted to be set on fire and then smashed into small pieces. But, I understood their decision.

Auto play by default is bad, mkay. Makes me want to pull my hair out.

This should not happen, by default. Put it in a config option for those who want it, but don't make it default. Using it while driving or anything else is a terrible idea. You still have to navigate to the page and touch the right story.

There is some truth in that, but you also have to be weary of their accounting. Its full of dirty tricks, where they can make a massive profit look like a loss. Sometimes in reporting the profits along the pipeline, they only talk about the profits of one part of their company. The crude oil department may only make .25 cents, but the refinery also makes .25 cents, the delivery division makes .25 cents, the retail gas station company makes .25 and so on.

Well, considering G+ didn't exist when Youtube was purchased... Its not that good of an analogy.

Try comparing it to the Microsoft skype purchase.

Funny note, Microsoft is now hosting developer video hangouts over G+. Despite owning skype outright, and owning a part of facebook.

I also hate the Youtube G+ Integration, for the opposite reason. G+ is great, youtube and the comments there are horrible and shouldn't be brought to light anywhere civilized people gather.

Play with the cost to run a car on gas vs electric. There are several calculators out there, including one on tesla's site where you can adjust milage on the gas car, miles driven, cost of electricity, cost of gas. .

This is my argument:
It cost less to use electric. Someone will make less money if we were to switch from gas to electric. I'm guessing that someone will be an oil company, even if an oil company supplying natural gas to the electric company.

Within the insane homeopathic industry, that's correct. However, penicillin isn't always a helpful ingredient to everyone. Some are deathly allergic. So for those people it would "help" according to people who lack any cognitive function measurable by modern science.
