  1. “‘Scariest Game of 2007’?
    I thought that award went to Microsoft Vista.”

    Actually, it’s Escape from the Planet of the Apes: Steve Ballmer Edition. It’s comes with a dance pad and a gallon of vodka.

  2. Yeah! that’s what we need. More mor – mor – morons playing games with themselves. Or is it, playing with themselves – games?

    A bloke walks into a Glasgow library and says to the prim librarian, ‘Excuse me Miss, dey ye hiv ony books on suicide?’

    To which she stops doing her tasks, looks at him over the top of her glasses and says, ‘Fook off, ye’ll no bring it back.’

  3. Have you ever noticed how a MATT screen, seems to absorb all the ambient light. And the user over time realizes the monitor is sucking all the positive ions out from your pupils.

    Strange, though, a glossy screen reflects those ions right back into your eyes, brighting and easing your time while using the device.

    Or am I just wired differently?

    Anyways, this debate over screens is very tiresome.
    Apple has good reasons to comply to environment standards for computers – and the choice of glossy glass is a part of this.

  4. It’s nothing “enviromental” sticking a piece of shiny, once a pile of sand, glass sheet in front of the same LCD panel that’s on matte screens.

    Except of course if your a sea turtle.
