  • I consider myself pretty lazy to the point where I use launchy to launch all apps in windows and don't use mouse or touchpad, instead I use the blue pressure sensing thing that doesn't move in the middle of they keyboard. But having a program do all the stuff mentioned in the summary seems overkill, oh wait a sec, maybe its not laziness, maybe its just idiots who cant figure out how to use torrents? The people who subscribe to podcasts should just go live off life-support.
  • Completely lame. Maybe somebody will patent the practice of rickrolling next?

Passwords are implemented as a result of insecurity.
