Don't care if your friends think you're a douche? Throw a party, get Windows 7 free! (Download Squad)

Sep 3rd 2009 10:44AM Had this announcement come from Google or Apple you young fanboys would be climbing over yourselves to be the first one to send out invites.

Yes, it's really that obvious.

WiFi-equipped BlackBerry Storm 2 coming to Verizon in September? (Engadget Mobile)

Apr 16th 2009 10:34PM Tell me again why we need wifi when we have data nearly everywhere with bigger bandwidth now?

I'm not being facetious. I am no expert at this stuff and seems like a step backwards just to match the feature list of the iPhone.

Yahoo! Sideline is a desktop client for Twitter searches (Download Squad)

Apr 1st 2009 4:17PM Mashing all my searches into a single real-time list is very valuable for me since I track my company's brands in the social media sphere. But this does leave me wanting since the results are not lsted chronologically but instead by each search term.

Meh.

Verizon counting on build 113 for its next Storm firmware release, changelog leaked (Engadget Mobile)

Mar 30th 2009 7:08PM Installed .113 a few days ago (thank you Crackberry.com) and agree with the others that it's like having a new phone. Be sure to go into advanced settings for TwitterBerry and disable compatibility mode. That way it will work in landscape and portrait.

I took this phone to SXSW and was surrounded by a bunch of iPhones that were dead in the water. I seemed to be the only one who could call in/out, browse the 'net, etc.

Neener.

Ask DLS: What do you make of IE8's giant incompatibility list? (Download Squad)

Feb 20th 2009 1:49AM The problem lies primarily in the what behavior sites choose when encountering the user-agent reported by IE8.

Vista to Windows 7 upgrade date and details revealed (Download Squad)

Jan 11th 2009 11:21AM Given the your post, methinks you might be happier with a Mac. They're a bunch of whiny little girls too.

UnChrome removes the unique ID from Google Chrome (Download Squad)

Dec 16th 2008 12:29PM Even though the point of this post is based around privacy shortcomings, something that bloggers get really wound up about while using terms like "evil" and "they suck," since it is about a Google product you will never see such references for fear of getting flamed by the "kewl kids" (aka Google fanboys).

New Digsby installer loaded with bloat and adverts (Download Squad)

Nov 24th 2008 5:46PM I just went through the install process and it was intuitive to simply click "Decline" or uncheck the boxes.

At the least, this 'gratuitous whining' post reminded me to look at Digsby again. What a rockin' package. I may be their newest fan.

New Digsby installer loaded with bloat and adverts (Download Squad)

Nov 24th 2008 5:23PM And how much did you pay to avoid this advertising? Are you so offended that you want to promote a negative backlash that will do damage to this company's ability to continue to provide you with a FREE service/software?

Sure they may or may not have a big payoff down the road but they still need to survive to get there.

Click "Decline" and get over your spoiled self.
