Kindle Users Sue Amazon Over Deleted Orwell Book – News and Analysis by PC MagazineAt first I thought this was a frivolous lawsuit, but the more I think about it, it’s really important. Amazon may have refunded their money, but they very much did violate the users right to the device by reaching in and deleting the content…I mean the whole point of owning a device is so you can download content and keep it until YOU decide to get rid of it…not the company that created the device… Microsoft Unveils Win7 Family Pack, Upgrade Pricing – News and Analysis by PC MagazineI still think there’s too many versions of Windows, leading to confusion extraordinaire… Apple, Labels Stir Up Deluxe, Digital Cocktail – News and Analysis by PC MagazineIntriguing…most intriguing… FCC Demands Data on Blocked Google Voice Apps – News and Analysis by PC MagazineInteresting…but I can’t trust the government … Continue reading →

Firefox 3: 8 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do – 5-8 – Solutions by PC Magazine I like the “Change default mail” one. That’s a handy tip since I’ve switched over to GMail (I love my iPhone!).

I did a lot of critical thinking today and wanted to share it! The Towers live on … in movies & television, that is Jim asks us what we think about the Towers popping up in media. I think it is garbage to digitally remove ANYTHING from a film, whether it be to replace guns with walkie-talkies or remove buildings that are no longer standing in order to be politically correct.

Spammer gets paid. Right now they’re just targeting the “Blogroll” category in WordPress, so I superimposed a subsequent “Blog Roll” category to replace it. <:-) >:-) <:-) >:-)

It’s the damned racial double-standard (as Kris points out). We can say George Bush looks like a monkey, but we can’t say that Obama looks like a monkey? I don’t care if it’s a previous racial stereotype….you can’t reserve words like that…but that’s what minorities do with the encouragement of the liberal left.
