Here in Norway, the police is present, and has a big, red "POLITI" button on Facebook, Twitter as well as in Windows Live Messenger, and on Norwegian social networks (biip.no, nettby.no). The button is linked to a chat service with officers from Kripos (National Crime Unit). Apparently, children have reported abuse (violence by parents) as well as bullying, enabling Social Services to react.
I've had no problem with IG chips, they run all my software just fine and can even play Oblivion. Unless you're gaming or running some eye candy OS, I don't see why you'd need more.
Then again, I suppose I'm judging a discrete graphics card vs integrated as two very different things. If I have a discrete graphics card I expect it to do more than "even play Oblivion".
Opera Unite is not Opera 10.00. It is a service coming with the release of Opera 10.00 (codenamed Peregrine). It is available in an Opera Labs release (snapshot) as of right now - dubbed "Opera Unite alpha". They did the same thing with Opera Turbo, released it as a standalone snapshot dubbed "Opera Turbo alpha".
I don't think Opera 10.00 final will be available for at least half a year.
