Really, Google? If that's true then it's so classy I'll switch to Bing. Throwing a hissy fit like that may not violate your "don't be evil" doctrine, but it definitely goes against my "don't be a bloody moron" one.

Aaaah, I didn't know that. I'm moderately sure that's not how it works in Germany though, or you would find dozens of brands of Nutella, for example. No idea about Sweden, but that makes it more understandable.

Not that it will change anything, but just to let you know: losing Google Reader makes me extremely unhappy.

Fighting for an Internet free of government control is a goal that is important for all of us. Because, and now think hard, when was the last time YOUR government did anything right? And how many people are on YOUR parliament that don't let their secretary print websites for them?

Thought so. So support Google on this one, even if you're usually scared of what they know about you!

Hey, great! Google Keep is live, so I can finally take notes online and then print them out to store them, because, you know, who knows how long that service will last? Does anyone know a good alternative for the old Google Docs, by the way? I want to keep some stuff "in the cloud" when they close that one, too.

Some days, I really, really hate Unicode. Point in case: we just spent half an hour wondering why /\bbi\b/ matched ...bin... . The solution was that the n in bin is not really the latin lowercase letter n, it's a character from the arse of Unicode that only looks like an n but it not in RegExp \w - which automatically makes it a member of \b, and I don't mean the 4chan-board.

Now that the mystery is solved, the next step is to track down the people using that character in a file name and make them see the error of their ways. With some applied retro-phrenology.

So, the Nobel Peace Price goes to the European Union? Excuse my French, but what kind of fucking knob-headed bullshit decision is this? Do we really need the "we may be in a crisis, but everything is still fine" sentiment so much we have to abuse the NPP to try and give people some positive vibes?

I'm not saying the EU hasn't done much for lasting peace in Europe, but why do we award a bloody NOBEL bloody PRICE to an organization of COUNTRIES? Couldn't anyone find an individual that was deserving of the price? Give it to Pussy Riot, for fucks sake, still a better choice.

This is such humongous "don't worry, everything is fine" bullshit, it devalues the Price more than giving it to Obama back in 2009, before he even took a dump as US president.

Just abolish the whole thing and be done with it if it's just a PR gag now.

Discuss: is it time that Mozilla releases a Firefox version that is just a minimal web browser, without all the new features they keep tacking on? Or is it time for me to switch to Chrome?
