So I have a new computer and wanted to install the Canon utilities for my T3i on it but I've misplaced the install CD. I contacted Canon and they want me to BUY a replacement utilities CD. I'm a registered owner of the camera which was purchased 6 months ago. Have you ever heard of buying $1000 piece of electronics from a reputable company and not being able to download the utilities from the manufacturer website, instead being asked to BUY the utilities? That sh*ts ridiculous. And it's not like they don't have downloads on the website. You can download updates but not the full versions, so if you have a new computer and misplace the CD you're screwed. That's really bad form.

Apple pulls remaining Mac Pro stock from retail stores... new associated product numbers show up in inventory... overnight shifts planned for June 11/12.... Come here, go away, come here, go away, come here, go away. Will you make me love you one more time? I'm afraid to trust again but you're like crack to me, my love addiction.


screw all this mountain lion/windows 8 let's ios the desktop shite. Doesn't anyone do more on their computer than play games and check their friends pictures out on facebook? Why the hell do we want the desktop to mimic mobile? I think monkeys are running things. Wait...

Is it the polar and stereoscopic nature of reality that causes systems to be funneled into two poles, two hemispheres, two parties, and yes, two operating systems? Why do I have to make so much compromise whatever system I choose? With Mac I get an os that just flows right, has great 'feng-shui', and is a pleasure to work with that I look forward to every day. But I also get limited hardware options dictated to me, limited customizability, the 'mac tax', and a tight lipped secret society nanny company assuring me that it knows what's best. With windows based pc's I get to choose my own hardware, buy my own parts, customize to my hearts content, and shop around, but I get a crappy design-by-committee os that wants to pop up 8 dialog boxes every time I sneeze, and hides related menu items in 12 different places in the os.
I spend more time with my operating system then with any other human in my life. I want to enjoy that relationship. It really reminds me of politics, where I can choose a party with good fiscal sense but horrible social policy, or one with great moral and ethical sense that can't actually execute any of it's plans well or understand their dollar and cents consequences. I know Linux is out there, but it's lack of broad support makes it useful to only certain specific fields of interest and influence, kind of like independent political parties. It all makes me want to tear my hair out. At least the left and right hand work together!!!

Seriously, there's no Sort order in Gmail?

Shame on your Google. That's just pitiful.
