For the record… TODAY is Bette Davis’ birthday!. :\

Happy Birthday Bette!! :P

Admit it. The only reason we play this Satan spawned game is to hear this demented yet rewarding little ditty.

How low? This is really convenient, especially in Canada where it’s negative asshole degrees out. Besides, sometimes you do need your phone while walking outside, whether for light or communication or directions.

like i’ve needed to text people while outside several times this week i’d rather not literally risk frostbite to do it

durr hburr techonology is bad fire is scary and thomas edison was a witch

I want that last line on a shirt



It’s a stupid idea. What no one is mentioning is that this "Texting Mitt" essentially binds your hands together. It’s like walking around with handcuffs. If you trip, you’re going down. Period. Worse yet, if someone tries to attack, mug, or rob you, you are defenseless.
Besides…. Texting Gloves already exist! Amazon carries a large collection of gloves that allow you to text in the cold weather without binding your hands.

OR… Make your own!
Here are instructions on how to make your very own texting gloves.

God help me, my house is full of homo devil machines!

I keep seeing this photo circulating around the interwebs. It bothered me that there was no information identifying it’s source. So I did a Google image search for the image to find out what, if any, protest this is associated with.
When you look at the full image, as posted on WeWasteTime you’ll notice that she’s carrying a rainbow flag. So I had to wonder from where this image originates and why, if she’s holding a homophobic sign, she is carrying a gay pride flag. (Look closely. They’re ALL carrying rainbow flags.)

The very first link takes you to an online video game “Destroy The Computer” (by KibaGames) in which you throw punches at, you guessed it, a desktop computer. But it doesn’t explain the anti-gay signage. It would be a stretch to assume punching the computer symbolizes a hate crime in some way. — Though I’ve certainly hated my computer at times, I don’t believe my PC represents ALL computers. That would be OSist.
The earliest posting of the image I could find was May 2006 on Barking-Moonbat.com. A watermark on that image led me to StrangePolice.com and that’s where the trail ends.
The fact that there are more than one person in the photo, and that they are closely grouped together, leads me to believe this is a staged photo.
Why anyone would stage such a photo is anyone’s guess. Part of me suspects it’s a promotional stunt to raise LGBT awareness. Not many people know who Alan Turing is, or that the process by which he cracked the German Enigma code led to the modern day computer. Many more are unaware that Turing was a homosexual.
This simple image has been spreading LGBT awareness around the interwebs in it’s own little way for over seven years. None of the feedback that I’ve seen has been homophobic. That’s pretty amazing.

6 tech gifts you shouldn’t buy this holiday season

by Kim Komando (USA TODAY)

The holidays are a great time to buy your family — or yourself — exciting new gadgets. Smartphones, tablets, TVs, headphones, computers, streaming media players, soundbars, gaming consoles, robots, cameras — the list seems endless.

Unfortunately, you should avoid some items on that list. These tech no-nos are either on the way out, or not quite ready for prime time. Here are gifts to avoid this holiday.

Sub-$400 Laptops

Looking for a bargain laptop to surf the Web, watch movies, listen to music, read books, play casual games and perform other light computing tasks? You’ll find plenty.

More people are finding that for the same money — or less — they can do just as much, or more, with a tablet. A tablet is ultraportable, has better battery life, is more versatile and less susceptible to malware than a laptop.

Scroogled campaign hits new low: Microsoft introduces Scroogled merchandise
 by Andrew Grush 


We’ve seen Microsoft’s Scroogled campaign attack just about everything Google-related under the sun from Chrome ads to Gmail, Google Search to Google Docs — but now they’ve hit apparently hit a new low. Microsoft isn’t content with spreading misinformation or half-truths about Google, they want to make money while doing it. Microsoft’s store has now introduced a whole section of anti-Google hats, shirts, hoodies and mugs. No, we aren’t joking.
The price ranges go anywhere from $7.99 for a mug to $25.99 for a hoodie. Maybe it’s just me, but this just seems wrong. It’s one thing to target your competition through advertising, it’s another to profit from what basically boils down to a smear campaign.
Honestly, enough is enough Microsoft! While I will admit that I’ve found some of Microsoft’s commercials funny and even sort of laughed at their parody of a Chrome ad, this type of advertising is only further hurting your reputation.

With all due respect to Mr Grush, Google Chrome’s security troubles are well documented. It’s invasive nature is why I disabled Chrome from my phone and tablet.
Last April I asked, "What’s the point of using passwords if your browser remembers them?" 

I know what I want for Christmas this year. How much are those mugs again?
