The thing is, if I were to unfriend all of the people I haven't spoken to since high (or possibly middle) school, I would probably only have like 20 or 30 friends. Sometimes I still do (when I pause, try to remember anything about them other than their name, and can't), but for the most part I just don't care. It's not … » 4/23/14 8:28am Today 8:28am

I hate to say it, but I'll be honest — if they keep doing $1-2 increases like this, I'll probably keep paying for it so long as I genuinely want it. If I cancel my Netflix it'll be because I no longer want it, not because it costs too much. » 4/22/14 11:41pm Yesterday 11:41pm

Launch Google's Camera (or Any Other App) With Your Moto X's Twist…

You may have heard that Google recently released their standard camera to the Play Store. You may have also heard that it's a pretty high-quality app with some neat features (it is!). But let's say you're a Moto X user who wants to use the new camera, but loves the built-in twist gesture that allows you to instantly… » 4/22/14 8:31am Yesterday 8:31am

This was one of my pleasant surprises upon installing GravityBox — not only is the setting there, it's enabled by default. I listen to audiobooks in my car everyday via the aux port and have Tasker put my volume all the way up automatically, so this dumb little warning got on my nerves on more than one occasion. » 4/22/14 5:13am Yesterday 5:13am

Does it get better than the pilot? I watched it on YouTube shortly after it premiered and while the premise was alright, I basically hated all of the characters. And even though I work as a software engineer, none of the situations resonated with me. » 4/21/14 11:31pm Monday 11:31pm

Alright, I'm glad that the dumbass survived, but I have to wonder — if a 16-year-old can just waltz up to the plane and hop in the wheel well, what's stopping a terrorist with a bomb attached to him from doing the same? Probably wouldn't work well for hijackings and the like (unless paired with an accomplice inside the … » 4/21/14 11:25pm Monday 11:25pm

They don't know. That's the point. If they assume their systems weren't affected and do nothing and then something bad happens as a result of their inaction, that's their fault. This is a case of "better to be safe than sorry." They can't know that their systems were affected, so you'd have them never do anything? » 4/20/14 3:07pm Sunday 3:07pm
