The only three in that list I'd count in that list are facebook, twitter, and blogspot. Notice that no traditional news websites, forums, or user content sites apart from the three listed are ahead of reddit in the list.

I'd really agree that facebook is the front page of the internet, though.

If a $X GPU plays games at 1080p/60fps with all settings on max, there is no point to a $2X GPU, unless you are going to go at a higher resolution.

So the high end cards will work at 1080p, but why would you buy one if the mid end cards are just as good for your usage?

It's intended for first person shooters. You both "look" and jump/reload/etc with your right thumb.

This controller frees up your thumb to let you always look and turn while doing A/B/X/Y functions.

It's too expensive and I won't buy one, but I can see the point, especially for serious halo/battlefield/etc players.

On my windows 10 box running 10074 right this second:

-hit start button on keyboard
-type "ping -t" and hit enter
result: command prompt window with ping running against

-close that window
-hit start button on keyboard
-type "cmd" and hit enter
result: command prompt window pops up at c:\users\myusername
-type "ping (IP)" and hit enter
result: pinging

Exactly the same as in windows 7. The only difference is that it is ALSO running a search in the background and popping shit into the results window while you do it, but if you hit start, type something, and then hit enter it will run it.
