Slaves2Darkness: Digital Communist: AOL is the company that systematically bought and destroyed cool technologies like ICQ and Netscape and scammed thousands of old people with their jaw-droppingly terrible internet service. They are one of the worst things ever to happen to technology and I will always hate them.How can you say that? They were awesome in their day, they pumped up their stock price, bought Time-Warner, and then crashed and burned. It was beautiful, while I did not get in on their rise I did cash in on a short sale of AOL-Time-Warner.
Sgt. Expendable: Last month I saw two copies of Tabula Rasa for sale in the local Target.
SuperDuper28: When I worked at Walmart I remember an old co-worker coming around for a visit after taking an Assistant Manager spot in another store. She said they had stuff in their back room that was 5 years old or more and it was driving her insane. For those that haven't been in the backways of a Walmart they don't really have a whole lot of space to store things so they need to be dilligent with moving stuff in and out as efficient as possible.I can certainly imagine some stores could be really lazy at housekeeping. Likely they had an audit where ancient things are found and then some genious thinks they can stuff it on the shelf somewhere and sell it at whatever the last price logged was.
davidphogan: Catsaregreen: I live in a small Virginia county where I'd bet a good percentage of the people have AOL (especially since at least a third of the county is still on dial-up). Not everyone has access to high-speed Internet or DSL.I've also met a few people who prefer dialup - so they're not wasting their lives on the Web.So, they have dial up, which is slower, to save time because they have no self-control?
Sudlow: I have never seen what the bother is over Vista. Works fine for me. Fast & stable. UAC does kind of suck though. I am going to sit out 8 though. Looks like shiat.
doczoidberg: I would totally buy Windows Vista....That is, if I had to get a machine that had Windows 8 on it. No way I'm using that piece of crap.Nope. I won't even give Windows 8 a chance./I do not like green eggs and ham.
Pocket Ninja: It's not at all possible that some dumbass took pictures of things, cropped them very closely, and posted them on the one website where it's pretty much guaranteed that 90 percent of the people looking at the pictures is enough of a farking idiot to simply accept it as gospel truth.
