In any case, Gizmodo’s editorial style guide clearly states “Do not use ALL CAPS unless it’s an actual acronym, to avoid inflating brands’ stylistic importance.” Read more

I recommend anyone building a new PC to use 16GB. While actual amount of RAM used will likely run between 6-10Gb, for some reason it seems Windows works best when it is not using the full amount of RAM and you have some decent overhead. Cost-wise it is quite inexpensive and just so much easier to do when building than Read more

You know what, I’m glad to live in a day and age where assholes get their comeuppance. It can be dangerous, because sometimes the court of public opinion brings down it’s judgement often before - or even in spite of - the facts being laid out. My rule of thumb is don't be an asshole and chances are you won't get outed Read more

My husband is in recovery. It took a few years and we still take it day by day. It’s a difficult journey. Please talk to your doctor. Also, if you can afford it, please see a therapist.

I’ve been with her for many years now, and I still love the fact that there are clean sheets on the bed in a weekly basis. Read more

The difference, though, is that Valvoline and Grease Monkey aren’t lobbying to prevent self-renewing oil from being the new standard, despite being proven to work elsewhere. The IRS has everything they need to cut a check or send a bill, but Intuit and H&R Block are standing in the way. That’s not paying for Read more

True, true. And they are in cahoots with the government in the great withholding/refund scam. People look at their refund as some sort of windfall from the government - it’s not, it’s YOUR OWN money being returned to you after being held, interest-free, by the government.

It’s true. NPR’s Planet Money did a great podcast on it. Our country’s tax process is far more complicated than those of other countries, and our tax companies lobby to keep it that way. (They are aided to some extent by anti-tax advocates, who argue that making paying taxes simple would make it easier to raise taxes.)
