    We are all doomed...... :-)

    Bit Torrent Rules....
    In fact just today I was talking about how the person responsible for Bit Torrent & the 'ping' program have not really got the praise they deserve.
    [ I think the guy who wrote the 'ping' program is now dead ]
    'Ping' must be one of the most used problem solving utils out there.....

    On the subject of google and their office package, if MS start getting worried, all they have to do is sell the windows OS for peanuts [ or give it away free ] and make the money on the office suite - [ or the other way round ]

    It's an interesting theory. But taking over the world? I wouldn't go quite as far as that... 8)

    Go Google! It's about time someone had a go at giving Microsoft what has been coming to them for years. Now there is finally some competition that stands a chance.

    As for taking over the world... there was a poll recently as to who actually runs the country and the owner of Tesco came pretty close to the top. If it is really that easy...

    Google's Mantra:

    "Don't be Evil"

    I've always been a bit dubious myself. Anyone who dabbles in Adsense I'm sure will agree.

    Sorry Google will never rule the world.
    They may have a cult following but come on.
    Although near everyone hates m$ for some weird reason im sure we would all love to work there.

    Bill Gates is a geek and geeks are cool.

    Nope, I wouldn't work for Microsoft for any amount of money or perks.
