    [quote<]Mozilla: "Firefox OS is a huge and scary step"[/quote<] Very interested to see Firefox OS based phones, but at the same time, a little skeptical of Mozilla being able to pull off a true competitor to existing players.

    Dishonoured… $80 USD for aussies on steam… Digital really has brought out the anti-competitive corrupt retail market in australia to the forefront. No wonder nobody shops for things that you don’t have to “fit” in the B&M outlets anymore. So pathetic. I feel like I live in the most expensive place in the world. Was in Italy recently and a few bottles of wine were cheaper than 1 pint of beer back at home.

    What does our government do about it? Tries to mess up lowering the corporate tax rate by asking for all those nice tax concessions back while implementing a flood levy, carbon tax, mining superprofits tax, and changing export laws for agriculture messing up pretty much every possible industry and all the other 3rd and 4th degree connected chains that cover everyone but politicians because somehow they get paid regardless of if their budgets are on track or not.

      That hurts my feelings, HOW DARE YOU! Now I shall blog about it everywhere. Stop oppressing me!

      Me and my other jerk off friends will get together and overpower you anti-jerks!

        whoa. i never added an “off”. that’s quite a bit more dangerous.

        and i’m anti nerd. jerks i have no problem with. in FACT, i’ve even been called a jerk. So i’m cool with those guys. it’s the nerds that are going to get the wedgies.

          I don’t care, it was IMPLIED! And that is enough to encourage a picket fence outside your typical anti-jerkoff locations that you commute to regularly like the park and the grocery store and what not!

          Watch out, I’ve already created a petition and will be sending it to every state representative for the Jerk Off party near you once I finish downloading the 200,000 signatures my petition has already started receiving from other similarly oppressed feeling individuals. You better watch your mouth next time! This a new day and age and we don’t need any more of that dark age anti-jerk behaviour around here. It should be equal pay for jerks and non-jerks a like.

          Fact: jerks get paid 20% less than non-jerks. I don’t like this! This shows clear prejudicism towards jerks!
