Kamineko writes "Kamineko is proposing that the Firefox browser fucks off. The proposal is designed to prevent websites personalizing content to visitors' tastes, regardless of sites sucking up a user's browsing history, as they do currently. 'Let's say Firefox fucks off' says Kamineko, a dude from the internet. 'As a user, I would have complete control over which of my interests are shared, and with which websites.'"

This is the result of an extended experiment. The idea is that Firefox fucks off and is just a web browser.

You're saying that the love and dedication that little Jane Doe gave to her 100px by 100px animated GIF of a kitty cat produced as part of a soulless-cash-grab by a minimum wage artist working for a corporation granted it a 'soul'?

Sure why not. That sounds pretty cute, and it'll drive anybody who takes the concept of soul too seriously bonkers.

Alright then. Riddle me this:

Why isn't the new Start screen optional?

Think about the answer carefully, because it doesn't have anything to do with the design of the the-interface-formerly-known-as-Metro. Whether or not the new Start screen is usable or perhaps even better than the previous Start menu designs is irrelevant.

Why isn't it optional?

I was really suprised when I learned how blunt the security options in Android were.

I'm used to COMODO IS asking me every time an application attempts to use TCP/UDP, start another process, look at a DLL or stuff like that.

All you get on Android is 'DO YOU WANT APPLICATION TO INTERNET? Y/N' which is totally insufficient.


+ - Benchmark Reviews Caught Red Handed Over 'Review'->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Benchmark Reviews were thoroughly caught out recently when it turned out that a 'review' for a $1300 office chair was a near bare-faced reproduction of a number of press releases provided by the manufacturer. Forum goers investigated the strange wording of the review and laid their findings bare. When an investigative journalist e-mailed Benchmark Reviews asking for citations of studies mentioned in the review, what was their response? Dig up the personal details of the journalist, including address and phone number, and post them publicly online in a "Hall of Shame"."

"What? You mean making videogames involves numbers? WHAT THE FUuuuuuuuuu..."

Hilarious, and it happens every time.

I feel sorry for the poor souls who'll have gone through four years of expensive 'education' to find that they really ought to have spent their time creating a decent series of demo games and applications instead. Oh well.

One good suit is worth a thousand resumes.
