Escaping the corporate or educational firewall, or 'how to play FarmVille from work' (Download Squad)

Jul 1st 2010 11:20PM @Vincent - I support Sebastian and his terminology, he is relating to readers such as myself who use similar terminology. It makes it more personable and intriguing, which is why if someone asked me the name of a Download Squad blogger, the only one I could come up with is Sebastian, who I thoroughly enjoy articles from. No homo. LOL (is this bad terminology too?)

Apple dropping DRM-free tunes to 99 cents (Download Squad)

Oct 16th 2007 3:45PM I agree they need to be cheaper but like Eleventeen said Apple has to make money as a corporation. I say Apple puts adds in iTunes (like it or not) to help pay for all their hosting costs and what not so they can drop prices on their music and still make money.

Apple unveils WebApps directory for iPhone users (Download Squad)

Oct 11th 2007 10:27PM As an iPhone owner myself I guess this is useful but doing everything through the web means we will just need to charge our battery even more causing us to need a new battery in under a year. Personally I don't want this experience because while my battery is getting replaced what will I do for a phone with all my contacts? Apple needs to listen to their customers considering without customers they wouldn't have a business at all, and allow apps to be installed on the phone itself (even if the apps are made by Apple). It is ridiculous and don't get me started about the ringtones that cost a dollar a pop.

Firefox's popularity repeats Microsoft's dominating mistakes all over again (Download Squad)

Jun 13th 2007 12:37PM I have to disagree with you here. Yes it sucks that not all browsers render developers code the same (I am a developer), but the fact of the matter is if Firefox keeps claiming more of the market, Windows will be forced to make there browser more standards compliant which they did with the release of IE7 (still has a long way to go). And when it comes to coding it isn't that hard to make a site compliant with all browsers b/c if you use a language such as PHP you can use a different CSS for each browser to make it render properly in each. This is what I do and my sites render correctly in IE, Firefox, Opera, and Netscape. Not sure about Safari or a few others b/c I haven't tested my sites for them. So basically Firefox is a good thing but I guess you could argue it has caused more work on the developers end, but honestly Opera and Netscape both render sites differently than IE so even before Firefox if a developer wanted to be browser friendly then they still had to do something such as what I said I do.

Zerofootprint: save the planet, impress attractive hippies (Download Squad)

Jun 7th 2007 12:32AM Fred I have to say I couldn't agree with you more. I am so tired of all this global warming BS, and if it's gonna happen its gonna happen (there is no stopping it), you don't like to bad it won't happen in your lifetime anyway. Besides there was a thing called the ice age, maybe it is just a reverse effect which will lead to another ice age.

RobotReplay - Someone may be watching (Download Squad)

May 17th 2007 2:57PM As a web developer I think it is a great idea and as a user I don't have a problem with it. The site is the owners property and they have the right to monitor it just like stores have cameras, rental cars are tracked, etc. No user should really have a problem with this unless they are doing things they shouldn't on a site, in which this could be handy. Thats just my 2 cents.

MySpace Parental controls (Download Squad)

Jan 19th 2007 3:47PM I have to agree with you eSeamus, I am still in high school and see all of the uneducated and unmoral people around me. Luckily my parents actually care about me. I know people who do whatever they want, get in trouble, and their parents don't seem to care. Personally I think all parents need to instill discipline in their childrens lives, schools need to actually punish students rather than send them home for a week (basically a vaccation), and punishments for crimes should be really harsh (no one will want to do the crime because it won't be worth the consequences).
