"This is just nonsense," wrote a Google spokeswoman. "Last year we took down 5 million infringing Web pages from our search results and invested more than $60 million in the fight against bad ads...We fight pirates and counterfeiters every day."
Murdoch vs Google is like "Do no good" vs "Do no evil". The evil guy resort to throwing mud, but the good guy's response is too tame and polite."

The solution is to consolidate all the data your care under one drive, one folder, so whatever you look for you only have one place to look under, one place to backup.
If you are using Windows, consolidate everything under c:\[some_folder]. Even if you run out of space on C Drive, it does not matter. The trick is to use "MkLink" (windows 7 and Vista only, for XP use linkd.exe from resource kit). It is like "link" in Unix, you can create a symbolic link or hard-link to anywhere else on your system, it can be located in an internal/external hard drive, or even network drives. And later if you move some data from d: to e:, your data will still be located in the same location under c:. You don't have to ever reconfigure any app to point to different folders. They will remain at the same location for the next decade or so.... And also, put the command to setup the symbolic links in one batch file, so you can easily recreate all the links when you setup a new computer.
If you are using unix, then you already know link, so no need to say more.
- The low level folder name should be tied to your backup strategy. For example....
- c:\usr\doc (for all the documents e.g. words, excels, programming files...)
- c:\usr\pic (for all your photos...)
- c:\usr\mov (for all your movies....)
- And the backup strategy should be divided into...
- CID (Critically Important Data) - Backup daily, create at least 3 copies on 3 different physical media, preferably with one offsite, e.g. the c:\usr\doc in the above example.
- KID (Kind of Important Data) - Backup weekly, create at last 2 copies on 2 different physical media. e.g. c:\usr\pic in the above example
- IDC (I Don't Care) - No need to backup, I may cry if I lose the copy, but I will get over it....
are tablet PCs *REALLY* the future of computing?
For us (i.e.
For years those 90% have been scammed into buying overpowering computers and thus brought down the average price of computing equipment so people like us would benefit. But that may not happen in the future...
A CALL OF ACTION: we should talk down the tablets so those non-IT people would continue to over buy their computing equipment so we can continue to enjoy the lower price of computers in the future...
For your second question regarding the difference between tablet and smart phone OS... they are pretty much the same other than scaling and positioning issues (smart phone is mostly one hand and tablet is mostly used by two hands...)
Everyone I've ever talked to who thinks the Tea Partiers are nuts know absolutely nothing about them and are just parroting the MSM and each other.
I don't think the tea party are nuts, I just think they are normal irrational people like the rest of us... OK... maybe a little be more irrational than the rest of us...
