A Brief History Of Geeks

A geek is considered a technically oriented person. It has typically implied a 'nerdy' or 'weird' personality, someone with limited social skills who likes to tinker with scientific or high-tech projects. The origin of the term dates back to the late 1800s.
Before smartphones, social networks, and other must-have tech, it wasn't a badge of honor to be called a geek.
Here's a look back at the evolution of the nerds.

Intel fined record $1.45 billion

Not that my opinion matters but to me this is typical EU Bull.
It certainly doesn't encourage being big in any field.
Free enterprise is a thing of the past.

Well if this statement is correct then no bull but foul play, regardless of the size of the company.

Kroes said Intel had pursued a strategy aimed mainly at excluding AMD by paying computer makers and retailers to postpone, cancel or avoid AMD products entirely.

So your idea of free enterprise is fine to pay someone not to hold competitors products. I hold no torch for AMD, they are already between a rock and a hard place and currently not much of a threat to Intel. I would hate to see them go under as with no competition, we all lose, I remember just how expensive Intel processors used to be but competition brought that down.

I expect them to do the same crap to Microsoft just because they bundle IE with the OS. My question is, If they ship 7 without a browser, How are you suppose to go on line to download the browser of your choice? pure bull.

OpenWith.org provides detailed information about most file extension and links to free programs
that can open and create each type of file. All of us at OpenWith.org have found ourselves helping our parents
and friends open obscure file types time and time again, and decided that this information was best shared with everybody.
There are plenty of great programs out there that will cost you hundreds of dollars to do what you need.
What you probably don't know is that there is usually free software that is just as good. You just don't know about it.

I did a search for "ip-atlas" and found the site. Then I click on locate me. According to what I saw on the map I in central Australia  when actually I'm in central Florida. I think they need to do some work on it.
