It's actually worse than the hype for two reasons:

1) The vast majority of people reuse passwords across multiple sites
2) A lot of small sites won't be updated for quite some time... if EVER

So, how many people are going to go to a small, itty bitty blog or forum...reuse that master email account password...and heartbleed?

Bought the game, spent my money, was promised early access.

3 days, still haven't managed to get past the character sign in screen. Tech support blew me off saying "keep closing and reopening the client". That was after saying that I should adjust my distance view settings if I was having trouble going from zone to zone. No offer of compensation for not providing the game time I paid for.

Don't buy the game, apparently unlike the Beta that I had no trouble at all playing, this one isn't finished or ready for prime time. Fair chance they'll just take your money and you'll get nothing in return but frustration and wasted time.

This isn't Hollywood's worst nightmare. It's WORSE.

Everything it claims? It delivers. Movie piracy that's as easy as Netflix. Easier really, you don't have to create an account.

O-M-F-G!

One of the cores tastes like NUTELLA! I'm not even going to attempt to fight this. Where's the car keys and wallet, I need to get to Kroger before they run out!

I know that a movie based on a book should be taken on it's own merits. It's a different medium and that really affects the story that can be told.

Still, as a movie, I was disappointed in Ender's Game. Sort of "meh", a collection of set pieces with little connection between them. I think if I'd not read the book, and remembered it reasonably well, I'd have been completely lost.

Because it felt like it lacked a stories arc, it also never felt emotionally engaging.

Really, I think what the movie needed was more length, maybe chopping some (More) of the book out, and more filming from behind Ender's eyes and less looking at him. 

Sad to say, glad I waited to see it as a $1.32 RedBox rental.

After months of telling everyone ELSE that the sky is falling, get rid of those old XP computers... suddenly I realized... 

My little coupon printing netbook runs XP :( But I can't be without extra coupons! What to do? Upgrade it to Windows 8.1? Decisions Decisions...

For some reason the idea of trading it in at Best Buy for $100 towards a new one just doesn't sit well, but with 1GB of ram...sigh.

I can't enthuse about LastPass enough. It's not for everyone, largely because some web sites can be difficult to use with it. But if you're up to dealing with the occasional finicky site, LastPass can make your online life a lot more secure.

It is free for Desktop/Laptop use, and costs $12 a year for a premium account that includes mobile use. WELL worth it!

The Android app trial cycle has been reset, so if you've tried it before you'll be able to do so again.

I seldom enthuse about a product this much. LastPass fills an important need, so please do consider giving it a try.

If you don't already use OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive), it's actually quite a good service. Not as open as DropBox, but at the moment, a LOT cheaper. In fact you can get 100GB of storage just by following the two referral links (so I get credits to) and then doing some Bing searching. 

One Drive - https://onedrive.live.com?invref=851b0700e296aaef&invsrc=90

Bing Rewards - http://www.bing.com/explore/rewards?PUBL=REFERAFRIEND&CREA=RAW&rrid=_0c1782ab-6a3a-b7bc-b2c0-62f240322347

For each 100 Bing rewards you earn, you can claim one year of 100GB of free OneDrive storage. You can add multiple years (I've managed 4 so far) which is fantastic, hopefully by the time the years run out the price will have dropped even lower :)
