While iTunes could stand improvement, of course, it is still oly about a million times better than anything else. At least a million.

If you check the little box that says "let iTunes manage my music library" it does. It makes folders based upon ID3 tags and files that shit away proper. Now if you're one of those tards who thinks you can manage your library better than iTunes, maybe it will piss you off.

It only has the best MP3 encoder out there. You can pipe music around the house to your other Apple gadgets. You can use your Apple gadgets as a remote control. On and on.

Yeah iTunes could stand work, but much, much less work than any of the alternatives.

Listen, Mozilla only has just over three hundred million dollars per year to spend on their browser project. This is barely enough to keep the lights on as it is! If you lot want fancy research projects, please consider turning on the Mozilla ad-bar and donating when you download.

After all, not only are our executives STINKING rich, but the heat and electricity that keeps the offices going are both generated by shoveling hundred dollar bills into a steam boiler.

I'm a General too, and I always thought that one of the main objectives of Amateur Radio was to foster international good will. Other objectives include engendering technical innovation (after all, most innovations in radio were made by and for amateurs) and building a cadre of trained radio operators ready to go in case of the outbreak of war.

Come to the last non-commercial, unkillable, non-Dice-affiliated forum on the internet - Usenet! and comp.misc are the new Slashdot (one computer related, the other just miscellaneous news). Sick of Rob's slashvertisements? Timothy's awful editing and dupes? Need to post some GNAA spam or just get a complaint about Scientology off your chest? Do it in style on Usenet!

Fuck Dice. They just killed Freshmeat - how long until Slashdot is toast too?

I thought everybody knew that most Samsung electronics are basically just spy gadgets. This includes their phones and TVs as well. After the baseband modem flaw / fiasco why would you assume any Samsung gadget with a processor and a radio is any better?

Keep using them, especially if you work with sensitive information - the Korean economy thanks you as does one of their largest military contractors, Samsung.

Oh and Google won't mind skimming a bit of your data off the top either.

While it is unlikely that anybody will bother to attempt to replicate the discovery of these gravity waves, as nobody wants to realize it was just a unit conversion error, what people do know is that Dice has sucked the life out of Slashdot. Come join us on comp.misc, and if your ISP no longer provides Usenet look up Eternal September.

Brian Greene is going to be there defending his hare-brained "predictions" so it should be a lot of fun for everybody.

Because Beta has exposed a fatal flaw in web- based communities, ie that the current owner of a domain around which a community has formed can choose to do whatever they like, the new official Slashdot is on Usenet, at comp.misc and I hope to see you all there.

Eternal September is a free Usenet provider, with the caveat that they do not carry binary (warez+porn) groups. Head on over and get your account today, and then we'll see each other on comp.misc!
