Lame. Google Voice is free.

Unfortunately you can't currently port your landline to Google Voice: http://support.google.com/voice/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answ...

My personal preference is MagicJack. I don't want everybody to have my cell #. I prefer companies that bill me (credit cards, utilities, etc) to have their own number which is my old landline. MagicJack fits the bill for me. Most of the time I don't even answer the phone and the voicemail gets sent to me via email.

But GV gives you a number and handles forwarding... for free. Is porting worth $120/year?

Perhaps it could also be argued that she doesn't use it because she understands it too well... Come on, you think that new NSA station in Utah is limited to foreign surveillance?!

Sussman must get so pissed after reading stuff like this (after he wgets the page and opens it up in his email client, that is).

I'm not going to debate absolutes, but it is patently obvious that Android is relatively more open than iOS or Windoze by such an immense margin that your statement seems, well... asinine. Could it be better? Yes, absolutely. But, given the BS business model that Microsoft has always had (which is really the same for Apple, though they are better at marketing), Android is a hippie commune by comparison.

What do you think about the prospect of Gecko?

Hence, they wrote a MATH text. Duh.

Title should be "... better at blocking malware on the steaming pile that is Windows...". Chrome/Fox are just fine on my Linux box.

thank you

That is what the kiddies are into, I guess...

Yeah, the vulgarity seems off to me. I love a good curse word here and there, but you have use them wisely (or else you just sound like a jackass).

Considering they're targeting a guy with a proud rep of swearing like a sailor, I thought that part was quite well played.

I reiterate, the usage was off. I could give a fuck, honestly, about bad language. But when I cuss, it is for a fucking reason.

Get it? I didn't mask anything above with "*" . I fucking committed to it. Swear like you got a pair, or don't bother.

I encourage EVERYONE to follow this phenomenal advice!!!

... and when the next tech bubble bursts, I look forward to picking up good CHEAP programmers without college degrees.

MWAH HA HA!

I switched to Linux Mint Debian Edition a while back. Cinnamon is a great desktop. Don't miss the steaming pile of Ubuntu. It was great while it lasted, but then came Unity and now they're hitting us with adverts? I don't get it. Seems like they're trying to kill demand.
