Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 7 (Download Squad)

Oct 19th 2006 4:15AM It starts fast, though it's memory usage is sporadic.

What makes me sad is the happy little 'Acid2 test' smily face gets smeared across the window in a sea of red, like IE was a truck that just ran it over. :(

Have a look...

Blockbuster: clinging to a dying business model (Download Squad)

Sep 5th 2006 8:18PM Sounds is a seriously lame music store, merging with blockbuster might actually make them worth visiting (..nah). They've only a small selection of music, bloated with the standard record-company-hyped top 40 albums, they're the same cookie cutter store that you'll find in any Westfield the world over.
To be honest I think that the business model of Sounds is more decrepit than blockbuster, perhaps they're clinging onto each other while they succumb to darkness of the new millennium.

Personally I like going to blockbuster it's still so much cheaper than Netflix, and you can't get dvd's on a whim, and the bloody contracts... urgh.

Internet Explorer 7 sucks on standards (Download Squad)

Aug 9th 2006 4:32AM Ervin,
You are obviously totally clueless about why IE _is_ broken.
The differences MS have made from the web standards are totally misguided, their mark-up is buggy and illogical.
Things just don't work the way they should. Microsoft don't even follow their own changes version to version; why? because it's _not_ a standard, not even inside the company.
People use web standards because it's an agreed idea on the way things should work.
Would you believe 1+1=3 just because Microsoft programmed Windows calculator to tell you so?

Just because the masses are ignorant doesn't mean ignorant decision should to be made regarding them.
