It's a pornography store. I was buying pornography!

"Fate of porn domain left in government hands." I'm wondering how much of this would help filtering. Obviously any work proxy and many foreign governments will block anything in an .xxx domain, but pornographers know that, and I don't see them moving… more »

Inside the mind of a lunatic

Just a random thought: since Intel purchased Infineon, I'm thinking a way for them to break into the mobile chip market is to create a new, low power, cell phone oriented chip. The problem with that is generating a commanding interest in it. But… more »
