And guys remember, backup copy all IP/source code from companies weekly after a new ceo.

Setup your desktop in such a way, you can walk out and make it not boot the next day, Change bios settings to something that will fry the cpu/ram, save & power off.

Add backup admin accounts to all machines you can.
Change all SSL certificates to expire on 4th July.

Even the cheap color lcd phones of 2002-2007 I needed smart features in.

I would hack a home made google maps, using JPEG map images.

I would copy dozens of .txt docs that were useful, like windows serial #s.

And dude, google translate is so cool when outside USA.

They should have bought the rights to Amiga, and made a new Amiga MkII, with improved specs, CD32 size, and ported part of the mac api to it ( amiga was better :P~ apple ).

And if it ran old amiga games, it would have been a hit, or get more sales than macs, if people would rig up a large monitor and Kb/mouse to it instead of macos.

What about various chrome extensions that have superfish embeded inside them?

A while ago, flash video downloader was one, not sure if it still there...

Google, do a better job, terminate all accounts to anyone using superfish.

CNET are fuckwits too, stop serving malware, they should be raided by the FBI now.

Do what google says, or they will make your govt and country invisible on the neti, get no tourists.

Aussie taxies suck too btw.

Useless and OVER PRICED.

Charging so called night rates up to 9am. Thats FRAUD, its NOT NIGHT time between 6am and 9am.

They just classify it as expensive night rates, to sting all business travelers in the mornings.

I call the taxi regulators fraudsters.

please mark flash as spyware, please kill flash!!!!

Any business that still wants programmers to make apps in flash are stupid, HULU, please recode your apps.

Besides Flash/Flex, AS, just purely suck as a language, utter putrid crap.

Please make all firewalls block flash.

Make firefox not even accept flash plugins, ban it , black list it.
