Wow! After reading this, I'm starting to think that maybe opting out on Web services might be something for me. Banks don't appear to be very responsible for any money stolen. Maybe TARP can help us when our money is stolen by thieves, just-like-the-banks! Oh wait I forgot.. we have to be responsible citizens.(Somebody has to!)

Hey, can us 'old timers' keep our old, ancient, (straight forward) browser interface? If the same mindset goes to other fields, I'm sure its going to be just as much fun to move the gas, gear shift, brake pedal, turn signal, radio, to different parts of the car each year they come out! Because we have so little to do these days, its fun to relearn the same stuff over and over!

Never mind the gas mileage! Why is the world so strangely silent about algae biofuel?? It's carbon neutral. They have had turnkey operations you can see for over 2 years now on youtube. (one small example)
