Yikes, what happened to facebook? It's like all the web-safe fonts got drunk together for st patty's day and just puked all over the page.

The missmatch of font faces/sizes is just awful.

Now here's a disruptive startup (backed by Google Ventures). Commission free trading, with plans to offer API access. Compare that to E*TRADE's $9.99 per trade on their clunky old website.

BFL Jally Mining away... At 0.008 BTC/day, I'm going to need to see some serious BTC:USD inflation for this to have been a good purchase. 6 months before shipping really ate up its practical value.

Same here.  After waiting 5+ months, I'm not sure $100 is worth it now.  I would love to take it apart and see if it's diff hardware though, or if anyone can do it with a firmware upgrade.  Off to check the forums, because I think some ppl from a yr ago just simply upgraded firmware.  Also, I don't see them being able to swap cores so easily given how incredibly slow they are.

Based on today's (monster) traffic, by far the most frequent question people have after upgrading to iOS 7 today is on how to completely close out of their background apps.

It goes to show, gestures, while faster, do have a learning curve (the same problem plaguing Windows 8). Especially when the UI doesn't give any hints.

I find this particular feature change nicely illustrates my views on iOS 7. It provides an upgrade in usability once you're used to it, but a downgrade in the obviousness of its predecessors. iOS is no longer the OS you can hand your (never touched a computer before) grandma and trust she'll be able to figure it all out on her own.

Reinforcing the point: The 2nd most frequent question today has been on how to get to spotlight search in iOS 7 (also hidden behind a hintless gesture).

Getting a solid 8GHPS out of my new 7GHPS ButterflyLabs ASIC Miner which finally arrived today. If only they shipped all these "little" miners before they shipped the big ones, the difficulty wouldn't be so damn high.

BFL was my worst purchase ever, but at least I only bought 1 jally and not a super rig.  It's become too difficult to mine for any profit, but I managed to make a little due to the spike recently.  500 gh/s units took over which sent the ASICminers that used to be $250/piece back in July to $10/piece a few weeks ago (now they are $30+).  Was always a gamble though and I knew that going in.  Fun while it lasted.  :)  I will keep an eye on the alt-coins.

Algorithmic revisionist history. Perfect example of why Google should be pointing people to sources instead of trying to scrape (often steal) content from said sources and serve it up themselves.

Broke my back while snowboarding and walked away from it.... And by "walked away from it", I mean "I was pulled down the mountain strapped to a plank of wood by 4 life-saving skiers on Monarch Mountain and tossed into an ambulance where I was rushed to the nearest hospital only to be forced to walk away (painfully... even while on morphine) by the DR because I didn't have my health insurance card with me. seriously."
