#windows10  acts like a bleeding #BitTorrent  WTF http://j.mp/mad150801  I don't mind, but why didn't MS say so before?
Windows 10 launched on July 29 – as a free upgrade for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users – to generally positive reviews. But major privacy concerns have emerged post launch, the most annoying one being that Windows 10 uses an individual’s internet connection to share updates with others across the internet.

I find myself living in a land (Tennessee) where the common mantra is not "Om mani padmi Hum" or “Namo AmitaBha” or some such thing. What they say here is "I know what I know and don't want to know anything else". It's sort of like a religion.

Look at the Mic and its stand.  See the rain droplets?  This is one whom you call a Leader.  Not someone who talks to you via Twitter or Holograms. #RGinTamilNadu

Please sign the petition. Will these airlines stop the next #cecilthelion   killing? http://bit.ly/1fLmGQq  +American Airlines +Delta @United
There's one simple way to stop this slaughter -- get airlines to stop flying these dead endangered species "trophies" so the hunters can't take them home to display.

I'm always a generation behind. I liked 7 okay but I don't have a working computer that has it right now. With a little luck I hope to just skip 8 entirely.

1st Foreign Min forgets her job to do 'humanitarian' acts. Next PM of India is on World Picnic. 3rd Home Min wants to watch Bahubali All 3 - PM, HM and FM - take their eyes off their jobs, and - We have Gurdaspur #terrorism  attack.  What a Bure Din for Hindoostan :-(  http://j.mp/1fyD0UJ
<P>Gunmen wearing army uniform attacked a police station in Dinanagar town in Punjab's Gurdaspur district early on Monday, killing four people and leaving at least four others injured. India tightened security on its border with Pakistan after the attack. </P>

Wonder which Sea Turtles he used to get to Delhi?  #JackSparrow   #johnnydepp  :-D
Why is Captain Jack Sparrow pulling a rickshaw in New Delhi? - While Jack Sparrow earned a living by looting and pillaging (though we didn't see him doing too much of that in the movies), his doppelganger is a rickshaw-puller in New Delhi.
