I did a little critical thinking. I asked myself, "What's the story behind voice search? I don't know anything about it." It turns out you have to click to turn on voice Search. They aren't recording everything by default: https://support.google.com/chr... What they do with the recordings and how long they keep them, I don't know.

Thumbnails of the websites you visit frequently appear under the search box. Simply click a thumbnail to visit the site. To remove a most visited site, hover your mouse over the thumbnail, and click the X icon in the upper right corner of the thumbnail. https://support.google.com/chr... I removed mine, opened a new tab and it was blank. I haven't restarted Chrome, so I don't know how long this effect lasts. HTH.

I'd MUCH rather use Notepad - not even Notepad2 or Notepad++, vim, pico, nano ... anything put this hot mess. It adds in tags where you don't want any; it's the only HTML editor I've ever seen that blows up a page when you edit the source; and many, many more deficiencies.

I often joke that Apple is the Combine, the Universal Union from Half-Life 2 instead of the Borg. Why? Well, they look cooler. Better design. There's the weird belonging thing. And there's whole transhuman aspect of owning an iPhone; You Become More Than You Were. Plus the people on the tech support phone line carry the title of "Advisor". Full disclosure: I am an iPhoner. There are many like it, but this one is mine. I nicknamed it Stormbringer, for its power and soul-snatching capabilities (my own and many friends who covet the damn thing.

from the one-keybinding-to-rule-them-all dept.
An anonymous reader writes "I am currently looking to move from text editing with vim to a full fledged IDE with gdb integration, integrated command line, etc. Extending VIM with these capabilities is a mortal sin, so I am looking for a linux based GUI IDE. I do not want to give up the efficient text editing capabilities of VIM though. How do I have my cake and eat it too?"

drewtheman writes "New studies of the plumbing that feeds the Yellowstone supervolcano in Wyoming's Yellowstone National Park shows the plume and the magma chamber under the volcano are larger than first thought and contradicts claims that only shallow hot rock exists. University of Utah research professor of geophysics Robert Smith led four separate studies that verify a plume of hot and molten rock at least 410 miles deep that rises at an angle from the northwest."

a3buster writes "This clock does not actually have a man inside, but a flatscreen that plays a 24-hour loop of this video by the artist watching his own clock somewhere and painstakingly erasing and re-writing each minute. This video was taken at Design Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach 2009."
