Ok, Here is a nice bit from a comment posted by Ryan: I think Bill Gates is our generation’s Hitler, but you gotta hand it to him – He’s a real vagina plumber… a poster boy for rapid rooter(tm).

I have to say that this only serves to convice me that “John Gabriel’s Greater Internet Fuckwad Therory” is indeed correct.

(Thanks to Penny Arcade for once again illustrating my point)

Here you go.  Just in case you’ve spent your time being a Microsoft apologist, not really believing that they act illegally.

Choice bit:

Other evidence presented by the plaintiffs’ lawyers at trial yesterday gave an account of how Microsoft violated a signed secrecy agreement with Go and showed that Microsoft possessed technical documents from Go that it should not have had access to.

So basically Micrsoft stole documentation.  They either snuck in or paid someone off and stole product specs that did not have a right to see.  Or, perhaps, did they use known holes in NT to steal them off of someone’s hard drive?

hmmmmmmmmmm.

It’s better than getting pawed by Jeff Goldblum….

I liked this. Coin tossing is found NOT to be random. This is something I already knew, but I have a completely different therory, one that I developed after reading Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson. I have always figured the slight bias in coin tossing (it also usually biases to heads) is actually based on the fact that people subconciously WANT it to land on heads. So while you may have minimal control while the coin is in the air, your body is doing everything it can to hedge your bet for a “head” result. This can include how the coin is sitting when you flip it, wheather you do the catch and final flip move and so on. It’s similar to the explanation of how a character in Cryptonomicon was able to break a supposedly random one time pad, he found that the people developing the random sequence were subconciously producing a pattern.

Proof that NOTHING is random, except for everything.

Just for you, Rev, my wang will henceforth be known as “Schlong the Tremendous”…

Or should we make up a new word for this one? Tremendoschlong?

That was hillarious.

That was hillarious.  First of all, I have to say that I’m happy to see a woman totally fuck a guy who sets her up like that.  I’m always disgusted with guys who set women up and ask them in some really conspicuous way, it’s a dickhead thing to do because it tries to take some of the choice away from her.  I also think that it’s a bad idea to start a partnership off by begging on one knee.

Now that I have that off my chest, I thought this was interesting.  Using Virtual Reality to distract patients while they undergo painful procedures.  Of course, any parent could have told you this works—“Honey, tell me about the picture in your book”(pay no attention to me digging the splinter out of your finger).

This made me laugh out loud

This made me laugh out loud. I was reading this article about porn on wireless phones (interesting to me because I work in the wireless phone industry). When about half way down I encountered this gem – the quote is attributed to Jack Samad, senior vice president of the National Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families in Cincinnati. “I call it sex in the palm of your hand”

Well shit, I’ve been having that for years!

URL Based Authentication

In other news, Microsoft is dropping URL based authentication. This is when you use http://username:password@server/ to access a password protected site. I respect why, this is used to redirect people to fake sites… the url winds up looking like this:
http://www.amazon.com/?id=fasdfadsgfdsgerqwr452345dsfsdgutr36257245344:asdg3426h37lkjhlkjh@127.0.0.1/
which directs you to a completely different site, but at a glance it looks like Amazon. This is basically a good idea, but it’s going to make my free porn password sites harder to use, and that just sucks.

Firms Develop Gesture-Operable Digital Home Electronic Appliances
January 26, 2004 (TOKYO) — Computers appearing in “Minority Report,” a movie that depicts what it will be like in the year 2054, do not have a mouse or keyboard. A protagonist played by Tom Cruise wears particular gloves and creates any images he wants by waving his arms like a conductor.

The idea came mainly from the staff of the Media Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Although the cinema depicts what our daily life will be like 50 years from now, technologies introduced in it may become reality earlier than that, because, in the digital home electronics appliance industry, input devices to be manipulated with gestures and contacts are increasingly being developed.

I’m assuming you could cause a household disaster if you masturbate with this device on.
