What PCs did my school have?

(Note: This was adapted from my response to a forum topic on Not Another PC Community)

Now I’m homeschooled, but back when I was studying in a public school(the Singapore ministry of education calls them “niche schools” or “government-aided schools”), I saw a nice variety of PCs being used.

Funny: Keep calm while you use outdated browsers

This was a response to this Gizmodo article. My original comment is here.

“Scroog e “: (Scrooge McDuck from Ducktales)

Endorsements for IE 5: (yes that’s the Awesome Face)

and best of all…

“KEEP CALM WHILE YOU USE OUTDATED BROWSERS”:

“… because I’d use IE 10 with the IE 5.5 user interface if I had to use something other than Chrome…”

Is Google+ turning into Google- ? (Updated)

(Note: This is an extension of a message I left on a petition)

The petition is here(it was started by an anonymous person, not me). I’m also trying to stand up for the millions of innocent YT users who were forced to join G+.

The worse thing about this is that users of their own Chrome browser are unable to comment due to a bug that also prevents users from uploading channel banners.

I’ve watched Google’s own video of their “upgrade”(more like a DOWNGRADE or even an UNINSTALL) where the (censored) employee who designed this (censored) thinks we use the COMMENT box as a SHARE box. Just go to that video and see how many dislikes there are, in this case 4973 as of the time of writing this post.  I really hate how the view setting is preset to “Top comments” and you can’t change that default. In fact, this is what a few users had to say(altered to keep their privacy and my blog’s reputation afloat)

HATE YOU (Gplus user)YouTube   No one wanted this. No one. I don’t think anyone on Google+ wanted to be added to the cesspool that is the YouTube community. (Gplus user)Google+   has a unique community… I’m really not trying to have brainless spammers commenting like “Hey! I got free (insert name of popular electronic device here) at this cool website! go to example dot com forward-slash enter to join with my referal code 12345 !”

I hate you so much right now. I’m going to keep it cool and only use the other services until you sort this mess out. The Internet is not all rainbows and sunshine man. Like someone commented on this video: It’s full of trolls, (censored), and other (censored) (censored) that shouldn’t be allowed in public; let alone in front of a computer.

(hashtag)DieYouTube   (hashtag)staymadclique   (hashtag)GOML

Two reasons why it’s really horrible.
1) Top comments will be set to default, meaning less exposure to other comments and having to change it for every video.
2) If you reply to older comments, your comment willl be placed way down the comments list.
Joke.

Google: Hey facebook!! Check out all of these new accounts we’re getting on Google Plus!! Pretty awesome, huh?!!
Facebook: Hey Google, check out all of these people on here that actually like the website they’re using and are signing up to it simply because they want to and not because they feel compelled to in order to use certain features that they used to have on another website that you guys didn’t even create. By the way, our social media website is still bigger than yours.
Google: Yeah, well…YOU GUYS SUCK!!

In fact, if you did create your G+ intentionally(without Google forcing you to do so), then leave a message on your profile and temporarily deactivate your G+ account. Make sure YT doesn’t auto-share anything to your G+, and remove the G+ link from your YT profile if you’re that angry.

I wish that person who designed the feature be FIRED from Google because they should be ashamed that they are turning a newfangled social network we would try to get in to during private beta to something that’s as annoying as mobile-only simulation games like Hay Day, or simply, they are turning Google Plus to Google Minus.

Things get worse (or good) if you have an Android (phone) with the new version 4.4, which I’d rather call “Key Lime Pie”. SMS through a cell network ends up in the G+ Hangouts client. Allowing the G+ client app to access your camera content enables “Auto-Awesome”, their answer to HTC’s Zoe, and if you have your phone number on your G+ profile and call someone, they will see your G+ photo.

Screenshot (20)

Just so you know, *I’m leaving +Google+ * because they’re *bullying +YouTube * with intergration that made a turn for the worst. I’m no longer making any new posts, and I understand that the G+ team is trying to *bypass advertising on AdSense* and used forced integration to get people to use it in place of Facebook. Personally I think  that this is *unacceptable behaviour* and thanks +google for a *great social network that was fun while it lasted*.

Update: I found this online.

eBay LOL: The new “P$” processor

So apparently some computer company came up with this new processor called the “P$” and computers featuring this new processor have leaked onto eBay.

eBay Fail: Buy it now yet seller starts bid at S$1

NEW ALIENWARE M14X GAMING LAPTOP, Selling at S$1,999, 1 year warranty, Sealed in box

Current bid: S$ 161.00

This is strange, it could have been his first time posting something for sale on eBay, but no. I did not capture the portion that shows that the seller is a power seller with 97.9% positive feedback. Strangely enough, all his other items are buy-it-now.

(eBay here in Singapore still has the old listing page, my account and community page style even though most of the site is updated. Also, the site here doesn’t have a cart feature)

Speedtest.net RIPOFF spotted!

Saw this through an advert. Basically, there’s this site called Speedtest.net which allows users to test their Internet connection speeds. So what some software developers did was create a website called Speedanalysis.net. Longer domain right? But I want to show you some stuff that puts up a red flag.

Don’t these guys ever watch the actual video before rejecting claims?!?

20130108-081114.jpg

This makes me feel angry, I feel like I want to make my own record company, a music channel and some music. It will have only 1% legal stuff and will have the promotions of music channels, VEVO online music video service, and advertising while also the freedom of ccMixter.

EDIT: Either that, or an online music store that doesn’t sell the actual songs, but rather the rights to use the songs commercially or on websites with copyright detection systems, like YouTube and Content ID.
