Unless you've used the same password for gmail as for whichever site has been hacked, it shouldn't matter. I found my gmail address, but the password had never been used at Google. The problem is if you've reused the password on a bunch of sites where your email address can be used as login.

Reporting errors in Google Maps used to be fairly simple, if you knew how, but the constant changes in the UI makes it difficult. When they first introduced bicycle maps, there were quite a few grave errors initially (up/down a stairway, along a motorway where bicycling is prohibited). They were fixed pretty soon after I reported them.

After messing around in Maps for a while (web version), I see that it's still easy enough to report errors. Just click the speech bubble.

Few adults can hear sounds above 18kHz. I remember making tone generators in Pascal as a kid, beeping out audible 22kHz notes that my older brother and my dad couldn't hear. Later on, I'd try similar programs on my mobile phone, but the damn device couldn't generate tones above 16.5kHz. Poor hardware, I thought, until I tried it on my 16 years old nephew.

Grasshoppers aren't nearly that high pitched.

The thing is, a normal 1080p 22" screen or 2560x1440 27" screen sucks at text rendering. Just look at any modern phone, and see how beautifully text is rendered. Now look back at your monitor. Even with all sorts of anti-aliasing magic, whether you're on Windows, OS X or X11, it just does not look good. 2560x1440 on a 13" monitor is just about acceptable. Sadly, the industry has been pushing multi-media and 1080p instead of pushing the boundaries, which is why any old computer can run all the new games today, and no one needs to buy a new PC for anything.

Also, what you're looking for is a tiling window manager.
