Google Books Takes A Turn For The Worse

What the hell is this at the Google Books home page?!!?

Click = big

I don’t want that shit. I want the regular page it’s had for ages!

Where the hell do people even start if they just want to browse and explore?!

That’s not welcoming at all. It’s like a locked door!

And it gets worse!

NBC: No-Brains Comcast

‘The Player’ Order Trimmed To 9 Episodes By NBC

NBC has moved in to cut the order to freshman drama The Player from 13 to 9 episodes. The series, from Sony Pictures TV, is currently filming Episode 9, so production will stop when it wraps. The show will continue to air in its Thursday 10 PM slot.

Would I have given it entire posts if it wasn’t worth watching?!

This is the first genuinely interesting and novel series on TV this season.

And Wesley Snipes!

You do not fuck with the return of Wesley Snipes, goddammit.

Then this network will turn around and wring its hands and wonder how it can woo people from the Internet back to TV.


Don’t let the idiots at Comcast — the disgusting monopolistic owner of NBC — discourage any of you. Go catch on and catch up!

JD.Com Enters Silicon Valley With New Chance To Fuck Up

Alibaba Rival Opens Its First U.S. Office In Silicon Valley

Wake me up when they get serious.

After making a noise about opening an English-language version of their site, something weird happened a few months ago where the URL led to a Russian-language version!

Now it’s back to English but worse than it was to begin with — and it was pretty bad from the start.

Aspartame-Free Diet Pepsi: Cat Piss Would Be Better

New Diet Pepsi Leaves Some Loyalists With Bad Taste [if paywalled, drop title in Google to bypass]

The company’s diet soda sales have kept sinking since the reformulated cola began surfacing on store shelves more than a month ago, and Diet Pepsi loyalists are using words like “yuck” and “unpalatable” to broadcast their distaste on Twitter and Facebook.

It’s immediately flat.

It has no refreshing bite.

It tastes worse when it gets less than ice-cold.

I thought it was the aspartame when mixed with chocolate that would send my brain into warp drive.

No. I’ve been drinking Diet Coke for the aspartame and it’s not the aspartame.

It’s whatever the hell it is in the Diet Pepsi itself when combined with aspartame and chocolate that invokes warp drive.

There’s only aspartame-free left in all of NYC. My hoard ran out weeks ago. My brain feels neutered.

Bring back the original formula, even if you rename it Diet Pepsi Death, for fuck’s sake!

Apple Now Thinks It’s Ford


If this is paywalled, drop the title into Google search to bypass:

Apple Speeds Up Electric-Car Work

Apple, Inc. is accelerating efforts to build an electric car, designating it internally as a “committed project” and setting a target ship date for 2019, according to people familiar with the matter.

They should call it the Pippin.


Seriously, has Apple gone off the rails?

This is a product that could lead to the death of people.

There’s no doing half-assed unfinished 1.0 shit with a vehicle.

Apple has so much software to fix right now that getting distracted like this is just shameful.

Being Stupid While White: #IStandWithAhmed

“Driving While Black” has been an expression.

Today I introduce a new one: “Being Stupid While White.”

So stupid, they failed even this simple test:

Hands On With What?


It’s bad enough that visiting a site that covers Android is like asking to be victimized — assaulted by megabytes of ads in exchange for a few kilobytes of content.

But when they can’t even get the name of a damn tablet correct, that’s a new low.
