I just want to vomit. Seriously, it's a nation with a tiny population and a gigantic amount of crude petroleum wealth. Stop comparing them to us. That's like saying "Why can't we get the same efficiency that the Prius has in my diesel?"? It is a car analogy.

mattydread23 writes: The last three months have seen major moves from Apple, Microsoft, and Google as all three jockey for position in the mobile enterprise. Apple is the incumbent — a strange position for the company — but Microsoft is trying to leverage its strength in traditional IT markets, and Google is finally paying attention. Writer and long-time IT worker Ryan Faas looks at the current state of all three companies in mobile enterprise after their recent developer conferences.

sciencehabit writes: Millions of tons. That’s how much plastic should be floating in the world’s oceans, given our ubiquitous use of the stuff.

If that’s the case, “there is potential for this plastic to enter the global ocean food web,” says Carlos Duarte, an oceanographer at the University of Western Australia, Crawley. “And we are part of this food web.”

It's good to see that I think "redirection" is a dick move. Seriously, I fucking hate that. When someone is at work and HAS to use IE, or if someone just doesn't feel like upgrading, or is running a computer that can't run modern browsers, asking them to upgrade is okay, but telling them that this site isn't accessible from their browser is just straight up pissy.

First off, I think personally that macs look stupid, but that's beside the point. A week ago I downloaded iTunes for the hell of it, was turned off by the advertisement all over the goddamn place, and uninstalled it. Since then, Apple hasn't shut the fuck up. Every day, a new e-mail is in my inbox going on about the new iPod. I marked them as spam, I've tried to get off the list. I haven't succeeded yet. Fuck you apple.
