The thing I broke was $500, yet they spend thousands on employees who don't do their job and don't consider it waste.

I guess until people in the U.S.A. (and anywhere else as well) wake up to the fact that stealing isn't just taking things that aren't yours, but also letting people steal from their employers, and start clamping down on lazy people, this cycle will continue.

People on food stamps, WIC, section 8 housing, unemployment, and government paid medical care buying lottery tickets, beer, cigarettes, and other junk on cash. If you can afford that stuff, you can afford your frickin food.
Crap.

Default Excuse my rant.

Hey guys! I just thought id post a nice little rant. Right now its on pc's and drivers and such.

Im done with dang pc's. I just reinstalled windows xp (could go ubuntu again but then no "jar of beans") and it took away my wireless card driver (naturally..). I wasnt too mad about this but i didnt have an ethernet cable.. soo i was stuck trying to find drivers for it from my phone and connect it to my pc.. which is fine.. but once they did go over, none of the drivers i found worked! Including official ones from broadcom themselves.

I tried installing android x86 but somethings wrong with the install and it loops rebooting.. so im saying screw that project.. probobly not compatible with my processor.. i was gunna take windows and fire up jar of beans every time i turned on the computer.. well since i cant connect to the web.. it aint gunna work.. so i try and download it to my phone to just transfer it over.. unknowing if my wireless card would have a driver on jar of beans anyways.. and wouldnt you know it.. the download crashes every time i try and download it...

I am now saying screw pc's and laptops... just frustrating and i dont want to deal with em no more. Im entirely phone now! I was planning on running android on my pc anyways so who cares right?? =p

But with this venture i must ensure a new phone.. which i will be doing in a few days here.. or at least ordering a new one... anywho.. screw pc's! I grew up mobile, why backpedal into the past and fiddle with pc's??

Im getting the htc evo 3D. I will probably root it as i hate htc sence and i dont care that much for the 3D feature (of course if this stays even after root, i wont complain) but still, htc sence kinda stinks.. bloatware.. but if i need any huge filage, i will get a micro usb to standard usb coupling and keep some files on a jump drive. Ive had it with pc's..

Anyone else feel like pc's are a bit over complicated??



The one problem i DO have is that id need a pc for root.. thats an app that should be made... a rooting app =0 then we dont need pc's at all! Haha please someone make a rooting app, that would be fantastic! Lol. I hate using my pc.. anyone else agree??

Valentine's day:
Valentine's Day naysayers: Lots of us aren't in love with Valentine's Day - OrlandoSentinel.com

I ain't interested. I have mini roses growing on a sunny shelf. Their blooms last for over 2 weeks on the plant, and they live to bloom again.

I don't eat candy, and don't like jewelry, and the Vulcan doesn't know anything about technology.

Amazon. Or pretty much every site that puts their prices up AS SOON AS I WANT SOMETHING... And also Scan for having their shipment of SSD's overdue.

Google Now doesnt recognise Scottish football (soccer, our national sport) teams!
We (glasgow celtic) played Juventus (huge italian team which gNow does recognise) tonight in the Euro's.
Google.... what has scotland done to offend you. Youve already been caught not paying your taxes here.
AND ive NEVER had a News Card and from using my search data, you should know im interested in foreign affairs.

Scotland wants to secede from of the UK? Google doesn't approve?

Did see an article somewhere about that.

Got another one! Sorry if someone else said this, I just don't feel like reading all 60 pages, or I would have to add "reading threads that take over 60 pages" to my rant!

I don't like it when people say "I'm gonna take a break from facebook", or any other such social media, then go right back in a few days because they can't do it.

Once, I completely deleted my account. I will not waste your time with details. I came back after about a month and a half and created a whole new account.

I realized I'm probably always going to be addicted to it, mainly because I talk so much. Also, I've been able to encourage people and find people I was able to lend a hand to, that I just couldn't otherwise. There are too many good aspects of it for me to EVER do that again!

So, before you say you're doing that, think it through. Then, DO IT! DO NOT just say it. Nobody wants that adult male cow excrement.

Why do we Americans sell the public drugs like Intermezzo?! The ad shows every time I watch hulu or the like.
This is a SLEEPING drug for pete's sake! and the side effects include "trouble breathing or swallowing"?!
WT-HECK?
What doctor in their right mind would prescibe a drug for SLEEPING that might stop your breathing, or make it way more likely you'll choke on sputum or emesis? Might as well prescribe large doses of heroin. Same damn thing. Heroin (or any other opioid) depresses your respirations at the level of your brain stem.
Sleeping + Stopping breathing. Those don't mix last time I checked.

This is unfortunately typical of the FDA.

It's all about the Benjamins.

Makes me weep.

Makes me weep.
If it's advertised, someone will want it. Everyone looking for a "miracle" of some sort. If there's another rumored benefit, like it lets you eat junk food and not gain weight, it would be in high demand. By rumored, someone uses the drug, notices another effect, posts it on Facebook, and the whole damn thing goes viral.
I think the whole industry is crazy.

Look at the drug Lyrica - used to be pushed for Fibromyalgia (?)
Now it's for pain from a form of Diabetes. Both diseases are painful, both do need some alleviating meds, but what does this say about Lyrica, prescriptions, and ads on TV?

Want to get even madder? TV interview - Big Pharma will pay generic drug company not to make generic as long as original drug is profitable.

I've never posted on FB. I have everything marked private. I will keep the account as long as I can and as long as some businesses have their customer service on FB.

We have some smaller Android devs that do that. I've clicked on visit web site, and it's Facebook.

Too many options for someone who doesn't like making solid choices...

I really don't like it when my employer demands a certain amount of work, but refuses to provide the facilities and equipment I require to accomplish said work...

They have a huge budget, they spend millions of dollars every month on maintenance, yet they can't let go of $100K so that my coworkers and I can work without tripping over each other...

I've got a voice message stuck somewhere. I had the carrier disable voicemail, and I think the message was from the carrier anyway. It keeps renewing itself every time you use airplane mode, or reboot the phone with the current date.

You should be able to remove that icon from the notification bar.

What phone is it?
That would do my head in.
Have you tried finding the app that handles voicemail (im guessing its carrier bloat [under the "all" tab]) in app manager and clearing data (android 4.0+)?

Rooted Nexus S. No carrier bloat, but they control VM. I could call VM and listen to the crap, but I hate doing that. First you have to listen to a greeting, then enter PIN.
I'd like to be able to just delete anything without listening to it. Any actual call is in the logs. If the caller is in the phone book, they are identified and I can call back at my leisure. If they are not, I look up the number. Usually it's Rachel or Heather from card services. I am NOT calling back.

I have the mid of Cocaine as a ring tone, and do not have any number of rings set before a call goes to VM. Someone must have been annoyed - I heard about 30 seconds of Cocaine before they hung up. Usually it's only the first few bars.

TMO will NOT let me do a greeting. I want "I don't use VM. Hang up and don't bother"

I never checked the landline answering machine, either.

This is precisely why I use Google voice for VM. Have since it came out. Don't have to listen to it. It is transcribed (poorly) and it has my contacts names on them. I can read/listen/delete/archive from my phone, tablet, or computer.

Lol cant you just dial a number to switch off v-mail?
I use the Hullomail app for visual voicemail instead. The "share with facebook" feature is great if a friend leaves a drunken message

Nope, wish I could.

I don't use Google voice. I don't like it. I'm slowly moving email to a different service and leaving Gmail to spam. The problem is - I have GSM. Contacts are on the SIM card, on the phone backup, and I have another backup that keeps ringtones. I've had 3 copies of everything every time I've grabbed an update to CM.

Ignorant petitioners...

Want to know what 25,000 idiots looks like?

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/997/086/864/tell-google-to-stop-going-through-your-email-to-sell-ads/?z00m=20503596

There you go. A petition to "stop Google reading my stuff".

So lets disect this. How does any internet search work? A website is created. It contains particular words in a particular order. This is known as "content". This content is indexed by a "robot" When you search for a phrase in Google, yahoo, bing - it matches your phrase to its index and lists all those sites. Special magic right?

How does email search work? Exactly the same. A robot indexes the content of your emails as they arrive or are sent. This means if you're looking for a particular email using a phrase you know it contains, it can find it. This is the same for all web based email systems with a search function. It is also the same for any computer, phone or tablet with any email client installed. So what exactly is the breach of privacy? Don't use email if you're scared of skynet!

Ok, next. Google is one of the best free services in the world. Also the biggest. Its not free. They need money to fund all the great features these petitioners use. They understand that they say.

Targeted ads are more relevant to people so they earn more money for Google which allows them to invest in your free services. How are they targeted? Well the index that already exists for you to search your mail, is matched against an index of adverts (by a robot) to display relevant adverts. So again, how exactly is this a breach of privacy? No people are reading your emails. Its not malicious. People are not accessible your data (unless you mention a bomb factory then your government swoops in).

What's more, you can opt out of personalised ads.... not that that helps. You still want to search your emails right? So the index remains

Couldnt agree more mate.
Ive got nothing to hide from anyone n im happy for google to know my every move if it helps improve my life in any way.
How can people expect google to do the great work that they do if theyre not earning a profit from it??
Idiots man
And if you choose not to have targeted advertising, youl end up getting loads of porn site ad's n crap like that

I expect recalls and free safety upgrades for my engine. It is unreasonable to ask for a new, upgraded engine be installed in my vehicle for free.

Even though software is much easier to install, it is still unreasonable to expect the vendor to provide a new, upgraded engine for free.

Lord, I sound like Bill Gates...
