    What Effect Has the Internet Had On Our Sex Lives?

    My SO doesn't have to 'find' my stash, she knows exactly what drive it's on and what the 'super secret' folder name is. Just this past weekend she asked me to set aside a folder and put some of my favorite content in it so she can come up with some ideas. So yes, I agree with this article...

    Random [H] Sighting

    I do this all the time when I go to a Verizon/Apple/Best Buy/[electronics store name here] store. hardocp.com is just an easy, quick URL to type and the page loads pretty quickly and reliably, so it's a nice test of the devices browser and connection speed :)

    My Droid X has hit the ground no less than 3 times - twice while getting out of the car (one time it landed glass-down) and once yesterday from my bathroom counter right onto the tile floor (it hit RIGHT on the corner and even bounced). Glass is completely fine. Only damage is a few small...

    Groupon Turns Down Google’s Takeover Bid

    As a Google shareholder, I say "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO". Why the hell does Google need Groupon? I suppose I could understand it as a defensive move, but 6 billion sounds like a LOT to take a very easily-copied service off the table for Google's competitors. Google, take your 6 billion and go buy...

    GameStop Details a Bright Future with DLC

    And this is why I drive the extra 20 minutes to buy all my games at my local Microcenter rather than the Gamestop that is 4 blocks from my house.

    Why You Are a Pawn in Facebook vs. Google

    Am I the the only one who thinks that it's kinda sad that Facebook is considered "one of America's most important web companies"? Big? Yes. Important? Not really...

    I've been avoiding MSE simply because MS-provide software can usually be replaced with something far better (IE -> Chrome, MediaPlayer -> VLC, etc) and I figured that MSE would be more of the same, but seeing all these endorsements by [H] forumgoers is making me consider switching from AVG Free...
