If only they could collect back taxes for impropriety on shenanigans like this, it might solve the deficit, or at least before Bush.

Next up, churches!

More ways to sell knowing everything about you.

Next acquisitions, dating and porn!  Well nevermind, those are already fringe benefits I hear, maybe they'll just cut the pretense and release an app for those too.

It doesn't help that a corrupt government driven by said shitty companies that have paid^H^H^H^Hlobbied for their former execs to rise to power (ie. comcast), dictating such rules that hamper competition so they can thrive.  They will not bite the hand that feeds, at least until we bite them first.

Net neutrality?  It hasn't ever been neutral, people are just technologically ignorant that providers manipulate their traffic however they want at a network-level with a quality of service policy, and you'll never know.
You may have heard that the internet is winning: net neutrality was saved, broadband was redefined to encourage higher speeds, and the dreaded Comcast-Time Warner Cable megamerger potentially thwarted. But the harsh reality is that America's internet is still fundamentally broken, and there's no easy fix.

Why is it that companies that ship large pieces of multi-hundreds of dollar items find the right time to be cheap is during shipping?  One order, two ships, two dented sinks, utter crap for packaging each time that indicates a 10 year old was responsible and resulting in a dented sink each time.

Make sure you don't buy from these guys until they replace their packing group.

I miss the days my phone actually fit in my pocket as an accessory.

Bring back small phones dammit. Best phone ever, from Samsung even, king of giant napoleonic phones. Id kill for that as a 1) phone and 2) hotspot for more capable devices (like my glass there). It was great as a simple phone and mp3 player.

Back when I didn't hate verizon too, or I might use it again.

Hah, it's like tithing!

I hope the architect that designed it for the church got a good laugh to himself.

I had no idea what the hell I was watching, but pretty sure that was the point.  None the less, their commentary on the new mac laptops is great.

So this is what UPS shipping has become... So much for "economy" shipping, this was almost laughable if it didn't incite rage at happening to me.

This looked like some 5yr old  kicked it off the back of a truck, heaved it back on with help of friends, and comically taped it back together with packaging tape without even most of the packaging materials in it, and who knows what else missing.  Disgruntled workers?

This is the 3th damaged item I managed to even receive in 2 weeks, with another destroyed before it even got to me

F**k #unitedparcelservice #ups.

Nice, NSA spyware that infects your hard disk firmware, that no one knows how to create, let alone remove, unless you have support of the drive manufacturers.  

Same ones that also disavow any knowledge of telling the government how to infect their proprietary firmware for obvious reasons and/or backlash.  

Sort of like when Sony showed the world the best way to infect their customer's windoze systems stealthily with the help of microsoft to backdoor their own DRM trojan to prevent ripping of their music.  It created a whole new genre of malware in early 2000's once it was reverse engineered.

Here's a stupid little ubuntu-ism I just found out has been responsible for some persistent misery of working with usb audio device, namely with inputs.

If you get odd things with usb mic inputs disappearing or not being detected all the time, you might want to consider implementing this fix until someone at canonical gets off their thumb and backports it.

After the fix, it was like "holy crap, it actually works again", as trying to use various headsets with voip application (switch.co for my business, recommended btw).  About once out of every 4 plugs it would work, and randomly disconnect...  Great for business calls, thanks ubuntu team!

Generally uncomfortable room, really hard to not either freeze or sweat to death with rickety AC unit. Noisy, needed earplugs to not be bothered by perpetual construction around the hotel at 4am every day. Bed is uncomfortable, being surprised they'd only offer a full-sized bed, and far too tall it, and down comforter far too hot to sleep with. Generally low-end/old accommodations for the cost, rather stay elsewhere, but good location if working in financial district.

Pretty bad hotel, cheap Ikea furniture was all falling apart, broken, doors hanging crooked, janky shower, various other general defects of an unmaintained/uninvested hotel. AC is rickety, iced up and ended up draining all over my hotel floor causing a small lake to wake up to. Wifi is terrible, poor system with one single AP per floor, nowhere near the furthest room back to get signal (where fortunately I was placed). Overpriced laundry.

Went on a saturday night, and while it wasn't terribly crowded, was fairly busy. We seated and waited at least 10 minutes for a waitress to show up, but we were talking and skimming the beer menu, which we were informed we'd get a flight sampler to test a few. This was nice, but took another 15 minutes to show up, and the waitress had no idea what they were. After about another 10 minutes the waitress stops by and we just order to get alcohol coming, where we got one beer and a sapphire and tonic. The waitress came back at least 4 times to confirm what we wanted, she finally admitted she had no idea what "sunflower" was with tonic. Gin dammit! Last time she came back prior to the drink to inform me they had no sapphire, only tanqaray or well. Ugh. I order a double/tall with tanqaray (not a preference), and I get mostly gin in a short neat whisky glass with a hair of tonic. At this point, I'll take it. We order food, salads, with haste as it might be an hour before we eat. We people watch as there as a steady stream of people filter in and out of there, but it's never overly busy or loud. Decent mix of modern music, some dance, but no dancing. Salads probably took another 25-30 minutes to come, another heavy poured tanq and tonic, and they were actually about the best part of the service as of yet. We ate and hung out some, watching the thinning crowd, but once finished figured we'd get outta there as we were already annoyed with the dim/high waitress, and mostly lame scene. Not really sure I'd go back, likely not. At least there isn't a pack of ravenous Peoria cops hanging out outside quite yet ala McDuffy's era there, eye-raping you as you leave to see if you're going to help them meet this month's quota with a DUI to just follow you out.

Food was very greasy, really was not impressed one bit by any of the food, especially for a 6 dollar burger. After 20 bucks for 2 people, even less impressed once my wife had to throw it up and I was up all night on the toilet too. Avoiding Culver like the plague from now on - caveat emptor.

Worst chipotle ever, everyone was disinterested, ordered double and none cared, and no hotsauce. When asking if any from a cook because all the casheers disappeared at once, she got butthurt, pulled one out, tossed it at me, turned away and didnt even respond. I know its new york, but the absolutely worst service ever here - avoid this location.

I was trying to purchase a used car, which had some damage on it, so the were going to have their paint shop repair the vehicle for me. After 3 separate attempts to have them do the work, they completely ruined the vehicle and I walked on the purchase. First time they did a crappy job touching everything up to the point it looked like it had freckles on the entire front end. Second time, I told them exactly what I wanted painted, and they only painted the hood (doing a crappy job in the process). Third time I got Jason the body shop manager, told him exactly what I wanted painted (6 panels), and every one was flawed with poor prep, over-spray, didn't paint panel edges, and horrible job buffing out the vehicle afterwards. On top of it, they ground the passenger window with the buffer on accident and ruined it! I can't believe they even told me it was done! I used to paint cars, and I would recommend Maaco or Earl Scheib before these guys ever! Painter and management there need new careers.
