Am I the only one to find a problem with the metric they used? If you're using 'tea weight' as a metric, you're in fact calculating which countries waste more tea! In China the same set of leaves can be used to steep tea at least 4 or 5 times... in fact, with good quality tea leaves, it's typically the 3rd or 4th… » 1/22/14 9:26am 1/22/14 9:26am

I'm gonna be quite abrasive but you know why we don't have such cases of "police brutality" on a monthly basis over here in Europe? Because we're not dicks to policemen, that's why. I mean, say what you will about the cop's lack of cool and about his arguments for the other guy not recording him, but our little buddy… » 4/11/13 4:57am 4/11/13 4:57am

I'm not sure whether I'm missing something here (even because most news sites reporting on this are being [deliberately?] mum on the details) but it seems another KEY piece that's always disregarded is that you actually need to have access to a logged in Skype of the victim in the first place. » 11/15/12 2:14am 11/15/12 2:14am

That's because you're not going to the right places ;) you're going to the Chinese restaurants for Dutch people... If you want to try real (and tasty) Chinese food, head over to Sansan in Rotterdam. Just get off in Rotterdam Alexander, head right when you get off the station, keep walking until you reach a tapas… » 10/02/12 7:59am 10/02/12 7:59am

If I'm stepping away from Windows, I admit I would much rather live with Linux. Right now I am a Mac user but I have to say... the magic is truly gone. Now they're just same sh*t with a different smell. What happened to the openness that S. Jobs once advertised, the following of standards and such? Apple is becoming… » 9/26/12 7:06am 9/26/12 7:06am

It's neat but easy to figure out. When you don't have the post-its, what you see is two sets of parallel lines swinging back and forth but when the post-its make the corners invisible, you see the movement as a whole, rather than as two sets, and the truth is that as a whole, the lines are drawing a circle. » 9/21/12 5:21am 9/21/12 5:21am

Uh, "developers suspect the new Kindle Fires will be hack-resistant... for a while". This should have been the title. We know better guys... if Jeff Bezos really thinks he can be the first one to create an unhackable device, let's just count to 5 to see the disappointment in his face. » 9/17/12 8:02am 9/17/12 8:02am
