  1. Review - Mozilla Firefox for Windows (32-bit)

    1.5 Final (Dec 12, 2005)

    Firefox is my favorite browser right now but the 1.5 needs a bit more work. I already had my user profile wiped out four times and it's really getting annoying to put it back together again. The browser gets a five but this annoyance puts it down to a four.

  2. Review - Trillian

    3.1 Build 121 (May 19, 2005)

    I like this program although I wish it wasn't so bloated.

  3. Review - Mozilla Firefox for Windows (32-bit)

    1.0.4 (May 12, 2005)

    It installed fine for me without breaking any of my extensions. I haven't had any problems with this version.

  4. Review - Google Web Accelerator Beta (May 4, 2005)

    If anything this slowed down my internet connection.

    I'm using firefox and this program is not compatable with Adblock (it completely bypasses it). The only thing GWA did was slow down my internet connection and did not let some pages load. A lot of work needs to be done on this program(at least for Firefox) before I would recommend anyone to download it.

  5. Review - Trillian

    3.0 Alpha 1 (Nov 5, 2004)

    Wow, after all this time I thought Trillian was dead and I moved on to other programs. In my opinion this new trillian shows some great promise. The new UI looks far more polished than the previous trillian versions. A little bit more work and I'll go back to Trillian.

  6. Comment - DirecTV Caught Violating 'Do Not Call'

    3.0 Alpha 1 (Dec 13, 2005 - 7:08 PM)

    Let me get this straight. They violated the Do Not Call list at least 1.4 million times and only got fined $5.3 million? That's ridiculous. This only teaches telemarketers that the potential payoff for violating the list is far greater than the fine. It should have been a $140 million fine with no settlement.

  7. Comment - Sony President: Rootkit of No Concern

    3.0 Alpha 1 (Nov 9, 2005 - 11:06 AM)


    It would be interesting to see an EULA go to court one day. I would like to see if clicking on an I Agree button counts as an actual contractual agreement in court.

  8. Comment - MCI Employee Data Stolen

    3.0 Alpha 1 (May 23, 2005 - 8:44 PM)

    The stupidity of some people just perplexes me. I've said this before and I'll say it again: Only a complete moron would put important information on a laptop.

    IMO, I believe that there should be a law that makes it illegal for organizations (schools, companies, gov't agencies, ect.) to put sensitive information on laptops. Putting sensitive information on a laptop is like leaving the keys to Fort Knox under the welcome mat.

  9. Comment - Google Offers Personalized Homepage

    3.0 Alpha 1 (May 20, 2005 - 11:57 PM)

    I agree. I also think that it should have ability to change the size of the boxes and move the google search around (I'd prefer to have it at the bottom).

    Once there is more content I might use it as my homepage.

  10. Comment - Sony's PlayStation 3 Up Close

    3.0 Alpha 1 (May 20, 2005 - 11:49 PM)

    They really should just stick with the same design as the PSX and PS2 dual shock contollers. For me those controllers work perfectly. I'm old fashioned because I still prefer corded controllers. It makes it harder for me to lose the controller and I don't have to worry about batteries or recharging the batteries.
