I'll be making as much use of ogooglebar as I possibly can.

And I feel a need to add  #fuckgoogle  to my vocabulary as well.
US search engine giant Google has successfully put pressure on the Swedish Language Council to remove an entry from its recently released list of new Swedish words.

My favorite headline about the new feathered dinosaur discovery.

Somewhere in a parallel universe, an unknown guitar player named Bob Welch put some demos up on his MySpace page.

A server configuration error caused them to show up in our universe instead, where one-time Fleetwood Mac guitarist Bob Welch found them, said "What the fuck," and sold it as a Greatest Hits album. Which he then reviewed on Amazon.

I'm still annoyed that none of the originals are on Spotify.

Today I discovered that two-finger scrolling in iOS doesn't have the risk of accidental clicks that one-finger scrolling does.

Until I saw a reference to two-finger scrolling in Apple's web design docs (http://goo.gl/udHyp), I had no idea it was even an option. This despite the fact that I've been wondering why they didn't use it, seeing how well it works on the Mac.

Duh.

Yay — I'm special.
Google's Gmail has suffered an outage, an unusual event for the popular email service, which became inaccessible by thousands of users earlier today. Plenty of

Well, now they say "less than 10%." So I'm less special now.

If I see one more "Hot on Google+" post about Android or Google Glass, I'm out of here.

Oh, this just burns me.

There is no reason in this day and age for "Intruder" and "Oh, Pretty Woman" to be presented as two separate tracks. Does anyone really skip over "Intruder"? Do those people even count?

If you buy them from iTunes you have to pay for two tracks. If you listen to them on Spotify there's a freaking gap between the two. And don't get me started about shuffle play.

If someone really needs to jump ahead to the "second" track, let 'em use the damned slider thingie.

Well, damn. I don't hate "Shiny Happy People" after all.

That doesn't mean I'll forgive them for "Stand," however. Some things are just unconscionable.

One of my coworkers got hit by the "Win 7 Security 2012" scareware this afternoon. Extremely nasty — I had to roll the machine back with System Restore and Startup Repair just to get control over the system.

Then he called me from home. Same thing just happened to his home PC, right after he went to Bank of America's web site — which he also accessed from the office today. Not sure if BoA is the source or just a trigger.

Too bad I don't have 80 bazillion followers around here. Can't create a decent panic without an audience.

Nothing ruins a good song like two minutes of dead silence and a hidden "bonus track."

It was cute for about one day in the 80s, but totally senseless in the 21st century. Guarantees no one will listen to the track a second time.

And at 14 so-called minutes, you can't even buy it on iTunes without the rest of the album. What a waste.
