I used a stock install of 7 on my own laptop which runs basically Firefox and that is it for custom software. I used it for about a month. When I click the Reserve button in Windows update, not one thing happens. Seriously, NOTHING happens. I even gave the i5 and 6GB of RAM and SSD 10 minutes and NOTHING happened. So that's how my "upgrade experience" went so far.

What a crappy choice for an article. It's a bunch of Google shill crap followed by generalizations and no specifics about actual issues users are specifically facing. I'm fairly certain you can opt out of a lot of the stuff he's complaining about.

Growth allocation gene modifications typically don't change any proteins actually inside of the plant so it should taste exactly the same. It just grows more of the same thing, not alters it to use an easier to produce molecule so there naturally is more but then it's chemically different (in most cases).

Will they only deal with Bitcoin or will they also accept other crypto-currencies such as Litecoin, Dashcoin and Dogecoin?

BTC-E added certain coins like Name, Nova, PPC, and those stuck but there were at least 3 others that were added then removed due to a lack of interest from customers. Bots just sync up the alts like a Bitcoin metacurrency and they became pointless.

I reeeeeeeally hope some jackass either bricks or low speed crashes or stalls out a massive amount of cars in the middle of rush hour so Congress can showboat in front of the media and do something about it. Right now most congressmen don't even know cars have computers.
