I loved Office up till version 2010, at which point we (the educational agency I work for) switched to Google Apps for everything. The last 2 years have made me appreciate the "always there exactly as I left it everywhere I access it" of the Google solution. The fact that its free for us (educational agency) didn't hurt one bit either. Re buying all those Microsoft licenses every few years got old. I'm sure Office365 or whatever has a lot of neat stuff, but quite frankly its not free, probably full of bugs (since its new), probably still somehow bloated, and therefore still not worth it in comparison. I'd never go back to office in a million years.
that's the dumbest thing i've ever heard, especially about programmers. unless your skillset is limited to some ancient unused language, i'd take a 50 year old programmer with real world understanding of architecture and code flow over half a dozen college squirt outs any day.
haven't bothered with Chrome since it came out, figuring google would fight tooth and nail to prohibit the blocking functionality, with it being their blood and all, guess they bit their tongue on the issue, for now. haven't heard of adthwart before, but will install flashblock. thanks.
just saw that there's an Adblock for chrome too! definitely have a reason to try the new browser now...curious to see how it compares to firefox.
This is the digital world, not the political world, things DON'T have to get worse before they get better.

For those of you who might not be drawing the link, the core there is that selling in-game currency for real money is essentially just an exchange of currency and perfectly legal in South Korea. This could have sweeping implications for RMT operations the world over, not to mention free-to-play games and... well, online games in general. The official story is available online from JoongAng Daily."
