Bennett Haselton is the only person that both Chuck Norris and Vin Diesel hate equally
Now our corner office can't blame his secretary for not sifting through his emails correctly. It's the clouds fault!
On the contrary. This means that Gmail will get all of the "features that everyone loves" from inbox and Gmail users will be slowly ingested into the latest Google sponsored maw of despair.
I thought they removed "Beta" from Gmail already.
There should be a poll to see how many people actually WANT to read Benny's latest blog post.
Yet another FF release.
Meantime, Netscape Navigator is 20 years old today.
It's liability. If they don't cover the directions every time according to script, they can be held liable if something happens. Remember that people can (and do) sue over very trivial things. There's a warning label on hair dryers to not use them in the bath tub. There's a warning on coffee cups.
Yes "everyone" knows the rules of flying yet somehow on every flight people still need to be reminded to PUT THEIR GOD DAMNED SEAT BELT ON DURING TAKE OFF AND LANDINGS.
Maybe he just misses his Atari 2600 after seeing the butchered plot behind Destiny and everyone is missing the real message.
Speaking at a San Francisco conference on Wednesday, the startup's 24-year-old cofounder and chief executive Evan Spiegel said that ads are imminent. The ads will show up in the Snapchat Stories feature, in between photos and videos users have shared, The Wall Street Journal reported. At this point, they will not be targeted to users based on their interests.
Spiegel suggested that the ads won't be too disruptive to users.
"They're not fancy. You just look at it if you want to look at it, and you don't if you don't," Spiegel said at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit, according to the Journal.
This will be the first source of revenue for Snapchat, which launched three years ago and was recently valued at $10 billion by investors. Users might not be thrilled with the idea of ads, but they could mean money in the bank for Snapchat and allow it to demonstrate its value to investors."

Research conducted at Stanford University found that multitasking is less productive than doing a single thing at a time. The researchers also found that people who are regularly bombarded with several streams of electronic information cannot pay attention, recall information, or switch from one job to another as well as those who complete one task at a time.
A Special Skill?
But what if some people have a special gift for multitasking? The Stanford researchers compared groups of people based on their tendency to multitask and their belief that it helps their performance. They found that heavy multitaskers—those who multitask a lot and feel that it boosts their performance—were actually worse at multitasking than those who like to do a single thing at a time. The frequent multitaskers performed worse because they had more trouble organizing their thoughts and filtering out irrelevant information, and they were slower at switching from one task to another. Ouch.
Multitasking reduces your efficiency and performance because your brain can only focus on one thing at a time. When you try to do two things at once, your brain lacks the capacity to perform both tasks successfully."

If history repeats its self, this "feature" will be buggy and need constant patching. They'll then spin it off as a cloud service where it'll cost you more to spy on yourself and yet spy less.
This reminds me of something my first boss told me: "Microsoft can't tell time. Have you ever seen how it counts down 3 minutes... 2 minutes... 7 minutes... 2 minutes... 1 minute...? They can't tell time!"
Way to screw up our upgrade cycle here guys!!!
Every time someone tries to predict the end, another Stark dies.
Apple got sick of people complaining about data and battery usage so they released this update.
