  1. Google's making some significant strides in unifying their OS among different devices--by finally clamping down on an app interface --the "holo" theme that's becoming the standard with apps. Also, stock 4.0/4.1 is sexy enough to not need major cosmetic changes. But it's still a major pain in the ass for developers to make apps that are functional across all screen sizes/processors etc., and it remains to be seen if any of the major OEMs/carriers will get better at pushing updates.

  2. These conversations about getting looked weird faces for using a Windows laptop in class are funny, in my opinion. I guess it depends on the school. At mine, engineering and computer science are the two most popular majors, so there's a good diversity of devices. I currently dual-boot Linux (Ubuntu 12.04) and Windows 7; in general it's probably 50-50 between PC and Macs. I kind of wish I went the OSX route because AMD's proprietary graphics drivers don't really work well on Linux, but I need the Terminal and the Unix architecture for programming.

    I don't think "openness" really matters in desktop OSes--you're unlikely to be making significant changes to the kernel on any Linux distro, and none of the OSes are restrictive in what you can and cannot download. Unless you're talking about the philosophy--in which case choosing between Windows and OSX is a wash. And Linux has too many bastards submitting bug fixes for random things that just change some hexadecimal value to something like 0B00B5 . Real clever, a$$hole.

  3. I was 3 and remember my family going batsh*t crazy.

    My parents were at that game...70,000+ to see Ireland beat Italy in Giants stadium, must've been a fun night after that!

    Unfortunately I was too young to remember that. :(

  4. What's known as like the scariest game? Is there any? We have an xb360 an nobody plays it. But if I could find something super scary that would be cool.

    No first person shooter stuff...makes me dizzy and annoyed.

    Alan Wake's atmosphere kind of makes it scary, but the lack of variety in baddies and gameplay makes it dull after a while.

  5. It is also an ancient chinese proverb I believe. I wasn't saying they invented the sentiment, lol. Ah, these college kids today. :)

    Nah, Paul Simon beat the Chinese to it.

    I wasn't trying to say that the quote's not original, but that the lyric itself was also a reference to the song. Which is pretty clever, and I wish more artists did that. Incidentally, Eazy E paid a lot of respect for the Beastie Boys with some of his samples:

  6. My favorite line is actually something I believe in and I use it often. People look at me like I am insane when I say it is part of a Beastie Boys song. One man's ceiling is another man's floor. Always loved that line because it is so damn true.

    That line's in reference to a Paul Simon song, although I agree with the message.
