+ - Google to release Chrome OS

So today, we're announcing a new project that's a natural extension of Google Chrome — the Google Chrome Operating System. It's our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be.

It will be based on the Linux kernel and will initially target netbooks. The announcement is here.

Am I supposed to finish with a question here? What do you think?

+ - What is going on with 'loose' vs 'lose'?

Insecure grammar nazi writes: Fairly recently on /. there have been a number of cases in which people seem to confuse lose (to come to be without) with loose (free or released from fastening or attachment). Normally I would expect the grammar nazis to set these people straight, but the prevalence of these mistakes seems to have increased to the point where more people get it wrong than right!
Lately I have noticed the same mistakes occuring quite frequently on other forums and interactive web-sites across the 'net.
Is this all a part of some deliberate backlash against these two words because people honestly feel that they are more correctly spelt the other way around? Is it just some planet-wide (slashdot-wide?) joke to which I am not privy? Or is the entire planet conspiring to mess with my mind and make me feel left out?

Parts that positively cannot be assembled in improper order will be.
