I’m sorry, readers. This article is 100% off-topic and not technology-centric at all, but it is something I feel that I must put out there. You see, I was given a kitten about a week ago by a friend, and there are some things you learn with experience that you feel necessary to pass on […]
So somebody sends me this: http://quaoar.ww7.be/ms_fud_of_the_year/569458-microsoft-attack-linux-retail-level-probably.html Words cannot describe the rage I feel as a result, but read on for a pretty decent attempt.

You wouldn’t really guess that many widows would be using Facebook, but the group behind the petition is a sign that Facebook is increasing their reach throughout the population – even […]

But now the search engine giant is radically changing their entire search engine, behind the scenes at least. And it’s not even […]
As I’m sure some readers noticed, we were temporarily offline for a few hours. Apparently, our recent article that spilled the beans on 4chan’s Facebook account compromises pissed off the lovely folks at 4chan.

Remember in the mid-90’s when people were absolutely paranoid about the Internet, believing that the government knew everything about us and that these “hackers” might be able to steal our information?
