(Full disclosure, I'm an atheist) Actually, god was afraid we would steal his power. That's why he kicks us out.

And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."

- Genesis 3:22

Seriously, I kinda want a buffer between my actual money and the companies I do business with. Someone who will take the hit while dispute is handled. This is why I use a credit card. I've toyed with google wallet and I actually like it as a easy tool to send money between friends. What I don't want to see is a world where to make payments I need to give my personal information to a dozen companies with incompatible standards.

The fact that they are blocking competition is enough to insure I won't be using their product.

How would I know if my device is legit? I needed a USB to serial adaptor. I went to google and searched cheap usb to serial adaptor and bought the cheapest one. I didn't lookup who made the chips the company that made the adaptor used. I didn't know who FTDI was until this article.

All I cared about was a cheap way to get access to my switches. Yet I'm the one who has to deal with their bullshit (potentially).

Let's face it, grid based layouts are tables and if all websites were static html, then html tables would suit us just fine. If we didn't want to cater to people with disabilities or screne readers then again, tables were fine.

It's a lot easier to replace, remove, or add a class on a article or div with javascript then to try to reflow a html table based layout (like when you go mobile and turn that 3 column layout into a single column. . It's a lot easier to parse the html to do something with it (like screen read) if you don't have a bunch of junk spacer images, tr's and tds, cluttering up the mix.

I wouldn't be opposed to something better than css, but I still think css layout is better than html table layout.

It's a naive, domestic operating system without any breeding, but I think you'll be amused by its presumption.
