He was making a joke about Chrome (the browser). Maybe a bit too subtle...
iPhone 4, Safari, iOS 4.2
Actually, you sir, are incorrect. If you watch the video, you can note he specifically says he walked through the body scanner and he found the blades on his person.
If you were right, I'd agree with you. He does discuss a body scanner (probably millimeter wave, not backscatter) but he specifically says that the blades were in his LAPTOP BAG, which would have gone through a normal X-ray scanner. He does not express it very clearly, he mentions going through the scanner and then brings out the blades that TSA "Missed" - but keep listening and it's clear from the context (e.g. "Also missed nuts & bolts that were IN THERE") that the blades were in his bag, not on his person.

Thank you HTC for Alpha testing the HTC EVO on the general public!
It wasn't alpha testing, it was just typical crappy HTC design & construction quality. Complaining about a junky HTC is like complaining that the scroll wheel on a Blackberry doesn't work smoothly. Yeah, they ALL do that (thankfully BB came out with a solid-state scroller finally).
The one phone I had that gave me zero hardware issues long-term was the iPhone 3G. YMMV.
There is no such thing as an impregnable commercial website.
Never has been.
Never will be.
It doesn't actually have to be "impregnable", it just has to be able to scale larger than the resources their opposition is able to muster. They got that.
Adam Savage of Mythbusters walked through a backscatter with two 12" razor blades and they never noticed.
That's not correct - that was months ago, long before the backscatter. They missed the blades in his carry-on.
I don't think his situation was too unusual - I went through 5 airports in 2 weeks last winter(including Dallas, Seattle, Atlanta) and finally at LaGuardia they noticed a pocketknife I had forgotton was in my laptop case.
As far as I know there are no VGA-DVI adapters (DVI-VGA does exist).
DVI-A to VGA adapters exist, but the video card must explicitly support DVI-A (Analog) - it's simply a way to map VGA analog video and digital video into a single DVI connector. If the video card is DVI-D (Digital) only, then it can't be converted to VGA.
You could get/make an adapter from VGA to DVI-A but most monitors' DVI ports support DVI-D only, if they support VGA they will have a discrete VGA port.
TFA is basically a troll. Starts with, "...looks like Google is pulling a Steve Jobs with Chrome..." - not exactly an unbiased statement.
Then, "According to Google, this will improve the quality of the comments". What, did he google on the word NO CAPS LOCK and come up with that quote? Whom did he ask? Was it an official comment or a joke?
Is there a soft caps lock feature? (I'm guessing yes). As infrequently as caps lock is legitimately used, a soft key sequence will work fine & free up keyboard real estate. I would not be surprised if the VAST majority of caps lock presses are accidental anyway.
The company got bought by a big corp and that bennie was the first to go
BTWI am American and live in Texas.
Well you're certainly not native to Texas. Most folk I know from there claim to be "Texans living in America".
Never ask anyone if they're from Texas. If they are, they'll tell you. And if they aren't, there's no need to embarrass them by asking.
True, they are usually the fastest network. At least the cap isn't only 2 GB like on some other networks -_-
That's far from my experience; I travel with a Verizon and an AT&T USB modem and use whichever is faster. I have found that most of the time Verizon is 3G service, where AT&T is sometimes not - but when I do get 3G from AT&T, it's always WAY faster than Verizon.
And it's not just me...
For instance, if Apple really was acting like a startup and willing to "cannibalize its own products" as it were, we would have seen a CDMA iPhone a while ago. However, if Apple released one of those they may lose their choice revenue sharing with some of the exclusive iPhone carriers. So instead they stuck with GSM which means thats in two of the most important markets on the planet, US and Japan, the iPhone is relegated to the shittiest carrier.
In the US, at least, you got it backwards. AT&T's data service has problems, sure. But it's faster and higher capacity than Verizon's. The troubles are CAUSED by the iPhone and the extra load users have put on the network. AT&T has had issues, Verizon would have been reduced to a steaming pile of slag.
