Comment Jeep Cherokee (Score 0) 911

I actually support this a good deal. If anyone remembers the Jeep Cherokee Sudden acceleration issue back in the early 2000s, its a goo move. I was involved in one of those accidents (my jeep shot across my nieghborhood and ended up hitting a tree 5 houses down) and the inability to controll your acceration is a completely helpless, terrifying feeling

a study put out by micro$oft says that a crime that mostly targets micro$oft software shows that, contrary to popular belief, that its not profitable. that is a SHOCK. wow, if i was a phishing publisher i would take micro$oft's advice and just shut down, because hey...they say it isnt profitable. Now i wonder if you apply the micro$oft saying of "As a consequence, increasing effort is a sign of failure rather than of success." quote to...oh...lets say....windows vista. interesting....is there a pot calling a kettle black

Getting Away With a Cheap Graphics Card 290

theraindog writes "High-end graphics cards get all the glory, but most folks have a difficult time justifying $300 or more for a single PC component. But what if you could get reasonable performance in all the latest games from a budget card costing as little as $70? With game developers targeting the relatively modest hardware available in current consoles and trickle-down bringing cutting-edge features down to budget price points, today's low-end graphics cards are more capable than ever. To find out which one offers the best value proposition, The Tech Report has rounded up eight graphics cards between $70 and $170, comparing their game performance, Blu-ray playback acceleration, noise levels, and power consumption, with interesting results."

What To Do Right As a New Programmer? 662

globeadue writes "My company just tagged me for full time App Dev — I've essentially never coded for money, but the last 3 years of support desk gives me the business sense to know the environment I'll be coding for. Now my company will be training me, so I think the technical side of things will be covered, what I'm looking for is best practices, habits I should/shouldn't develop, etc as I take on my new craft."
