Yes. And I predict MS putting it up for sale in a few years for about $200M
I found this article and, sure enough, found the usual bunch of anti-bicycle riding, pro-car trolls, making the usual threats to crush riders under their wheels etc etc. You worthless bunch of fucking cunts. Bicycle riding as utilitarian private transport is your fucking saviour you fuckwits. You just don't realise it yet. Get the fuck off my road.
Fuck you, cage head cunt.
Don't barbecue them?! Speak for yourself. Soak green king prawns in lemon juice and garlic until the lemon begins to cook them slightly, then throw on the barbecue. Fuckin' unreal.
Design a system to be idiot proof, and they will simply design a better idiot.
I'm glad coal and nuclear are so beautiful then.
The use of machinery and intensive nutrients/pesticides has driven food prices to such low levels that good, wholesome corn fed, SUV drivin', soda guzzlin', beef chompin' Americans (and Canadians, and Europeans, and Australians) have been the fattest they've ever been.
I find it really funny when some fatty boomsticks whinges about the high price of wholesome, un-processed food, fruit and vegetables, as if they're gonna eat that stuff anyway. Too easy to visit TrippelFatSlurp on the corner and get a Double Guzzle Combo for $10 than to do a weekly food shop for $50.
To the dumbos who are down-modding comments on the atrocious use of the word "hear" instead of "here" in the summary, I offer you this piece from Mark Twain:
A PLAN FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF ENGLISH SPELLING
For example, in Year 1 that useless letter "c" would be dropped to be replased either by "k" or "s", and likewise "x" would no longer be part of the alphabet.
The only kase in which "c" would be retained would be the "ch" formation, which will be dealt with later.
Year 2 might reform "w" spelling, so that "which" and "one" would take the same konsonant, wile Year 3 might well abolish "y" replasing it with "i" and iear 4 might fiks the "g/j" anomali wonse and for all.
Jenerally, then, the improvement would kontinue iear bai iear with iear 5 doing awai with useless double konsonants, and iears 6-12 or so modifaiing vowlz and the rimeining voist and unvoist konsonants.
Bai iear 15 or sou, it wud fainali bi posibl tu meik ius ov thi ridandant letez "c", "y" and "x" -- bai now jast a memori in the maindz ov ould doderez -- tu riplais "ch", "sh", and "th" rispektivli.
Fainali, xen, aafte sam 20 iers ov orxogrefkl riform, wi wud hev a lojikl, kohirnt speling in ius xrewawt xe Ingliy-spiking werld.
Simple firewall rule to block access to ui.skype.com. Also, I don't see why
I was wondering when that old chestnut would pop-up. Not everyone has the mindset to be a programmer, let alone the time. You're inviting a lot of half assed code to be rejected from the base line if you expect people to just "learn c or c++" then start contributing to a project that probably at least requires knowledge at CS level. This would create an extra burden on any project.
Believe it or not, some people (actually, most people) just want to buy their device.
GREAT! That means we can fill the world with 99 times more useless plastic shit! And fuck entire ecosystems while we're at it! Jolly good.
Hell, bottled water being cheaper than coke would be a better nutrition option. Shame about the waste plastic though.

Woolworths program director Deon Ludick told The Australian newspaper that they would be replacing a large part of their PC desktop fleet with Chrome OS devices from a number of providers. The company is expected to reveal more details in the coming weeks.
Gartner research director Gunnar Berger said one of the biggest advantages to this approach was that Chrome OS was extremely secure — Google has an ongoing competition that pays large rewards to anyone able to hack the device via the browser. Analysts have said the Chromebook segment was the fastest-growing part of the mobile PC market last year, mainly in North America and in some emerging and mature Asia-Pacific countries such as Malaysia and Australia."
