windows 10 build 10240 is released!
Hi everyone, today we are releasing a new build to both the Fast and Slow rings. We're just about two weeks away from beginning to offer Windows 10 to the world, as Terry detailed here. Over the past few days we've been preparing our release pipelines and processes, and this build is one step ...

See also: "Millions of Chevy/Ford Drivers have no idea they're driving a Car." What a sad, ridiculous story.

Hoping for some good ol' anti-trust regulation of Facebook within the next few years. If Microsoft deserved it, than Facebook definitely does.
To many internet newcomers, they're one and the same.

Hey +Dozan Wa Awtar! Check out what finally got accepted on Youtube - when I originally added it in 2010 it was blocked for being too long, but it looks like it was finally approved, ha.

Weird that Internet Explorer is going away. I wonder what workarounds will be put into Windows 10 to deal with the fact so many apps will be calling for iexplore.exe? Will they keep "Spartan" as iexplore.exe? Will they use symlinks, aliases and just plain ol' shortcuts? Will the extension model be more like Firefox's (superior) or Chrome's (inferior) - I'm willing to bet on the latter, judging from how Microsoft has treated their encrypted "apps" on Windows 8.

All and all...the end of an era for sure.
The browser is faster, more lightweight, and even supports extensions.

Note 3 users - how's CarbonRom doing these days for it? My Note 3 is finally out of the 1 year warranty now, so I'm thinking of throwing my favorite ROM on the phone now and seeing how things go. Anything not working with our glorious big phone?

Really interesting article. And I, just like "100%" of the other PC gamers out there, will protest mightily that "I would never treat a dev that way" - or anyone else. My momma raised me right to not treat ANYONE the way you see the dregs of Steam shouting at devs "ur game sucks waste of money wanta refund fag."

But every gamer - PC gamers in particular, because we're all concentrated in Steam's forums - know that there are huge numbers of people like that, because we see them all the time whenever we go to Steam's forums to politely point out a problem or submit a properly-formatted bug report.

I like Steam Sales as much as anyone else - who doesn't like saving money - but over the past year I'm beginning to feel uncomfortable about them. And this is the first (because of idiots exactly like the dev mentions in the post) developer post I've seen that actually gives a voice to that uneasiness.

If your iPhone is low on battery before a Hand To God Broadway showing, please note the outlets on stage are fake.

What a world we live in. Cameras, cameras everywhere, and not a CMOS sensor that's properly sized.

Oh well. These days, the amount of people taking photos with their smartphones means that even though 99% of is crap, 1% of it is beautiful, even on the tiny sensors. Like a million monkeys on a million typewriters, eventually producing A Tale of Two Cities.
"“I would argue that the camera industry is healthier than it’s ever been," says photographer Sven Skafisk, "but the brands we all think of as ‘the camera companies’ aren’t participating." Check ou...

Them Republicans are HIP to the JIVE speak! Look at how DOWN they are! They be talkin' bout HOS!

...one of those two guys isn't even black. They couldn't even find two black people to be in their right-wing commercial? That's pretty sad, even for a GOP PAC.
