    Mozilla CEO pressured to resign

    The thing I find interesting is that all of this is over a thousand dollar donation from a millionaire. It wouldn't surprise me to find out that he was solicited for a donation and he said, "eh, sure, here's a grand." It also wouldn't surprise me if he didn't remember giving the donation 8...

    Apparently the bug with the menu at the bottom has been known to Forum Runner since November. So their support sucks too.

    New Forum SUCKS

    light bulbs

    If I build a new house, I'm going to have it wired with DC voltage (probably 5V and 12V) throughout the house. Having DC available will make using LEDs cheaper and more efficient. It's also more useful for other electronics like computers and cell phones.

    Apple iPad mini with Retina Display

    You might want to check the Play Store for the apps (or equivalent apps). There are quite a few apps that you have to pay for on iOS, but are free (or cheaper) on Android. Also, I thought one of the big complaints about the iPad was that you had to buy a lot of apps again for the tablet...

    Apple iPad mini with Retina Display

    Get a Nexus 7 instead. It has a better screen, is more open/flexible/powerful, and costs less.
