Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

This is how people use the internet.

    So after seeing the comments on the article in the OP, I think I finally understand the market for the iPad.

    Also, one of my favorite comments has to be one where the person thought they'd beaten the system by using Bing instead of Google, because the facebook login page was apparently still the first result there.

    The saddest victory. Like winning the lottery but being robbed and losing the ticket before you could make it to the lottery office.

    It's more like losing your keys, so resorting to reaching in through your doggy door in order to open the door to your house from the inside.

    But it was never locked in the first place.

    The best is when a forumer shows you how to break into his house and steal his donuts.

    When I was studying, one of the students I was working with on a project always typed urls into google and then clicked the result. I asked him what the hell he was doing, and he said it was because he didn't want the url showing up in the history in the address bar.

    I still have no idea how that made sense in any way. It wasn't like it was porn or anything, just regular web sites.

    To clarify - he first went to www.google.com, he didn't use the google search field in his browser.

    this applies to pretty much any fetish, too
    if you can think of a fetish, there's a whole group for it which has already formed sub groups

    i guess i'm not really surprised

    even my flatmates who have some computer competency usually go to google, then type in what they want e.g. 'facebook'

    and with our dynamic IPs, you'll get a new one every day!

    also chrome guesses URLs you put in based on how many times you've done it before, which is great

    I can just go 'fa [enter]' and bam facebook

    CNET tells me that Microsoft is actively fighting back against Windows 7 piracy.

    also, not sure why they bother
    Williams said the new update will remain optional and that those who choose not to install it will still be able to get other Windows updates, a position that marks a fairly sharp contrast to the once hard line Microsoft was taking against piracy.

    So their anti-piracy update only works if the pirate chose to download it?

    well, that would be interesting.

    But instead, it will disable a number of activation hacks and mark the OS as not genuine

    I'm sure it won't be called THE ANTI-PIRACY UPDATE, it will be a Windows Genuine Notification Configuration Tool Update or something like that.

    But it wasn't going to deter the pirates who are really watching out for stuff like this anyways. It's going to fuck up the tons of other people who are like "Oh, I can just download windows 7 and it comes with a crack" and then they go about using it like it is a normally purchased OS, downloading and installing updates automatically.

    People who download their OS and then get malware just deserve it. Especially since it isn't hard at all to get a clean version. Like, if you use torrents at all, even for perfectly legal reasons, you'll stumble across that shit eventually.

    I would like to pause for a moment, to talk about my penis.

    I do this too!

    (at work only though and I don't type full urls for example for here I would type penny arcade forums and just search)

    It's because like they said, in IE the address bar remembers what you type in even if you delete the history. (Now at work I use chrome in private mode)
