Build Your Dream Computer

I noticed a post on Lockergnome earlier that made me chuckle a little. The poster asks everyone whether they would buy a Windows machine or a Mac if they had up to one thousand dollars to spend. I can already picture the responses to that question: fanboys on both sides of the coin arguing with each other! However, I have a feeling that some of our more hard-core Geeks will want to just build a machine and slap some flavor of Linux on it!

What would you do if someone handed you a grand and told you to buy any computer you wanted? What would you look at first… and why?

Stop the Facebook Chain Message Madness!

If you’re on Facebook, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Recently, we’ve seen more than our fair share of chain messages making their way around, but not in our Inbox. These lovely little pieces of garbage are being sported right in the status boxes of thousands of profiles! One message claimed that if you re-posted it as your status, Facebook would donate a dollar to the Haiti relief efforts. Yet another was supposedly only for women. They were supposed to post their color of certain undergarments in their status pane, leaving the men to guess what it referred to.

It was only a matter of time, I suppose, before things like this made their way onto social media platforms. We’ve already had to deal with “legitimate” spam, of course. Now, we have to try not to tear out our hair every time we see yet another of these over-forwarded messages on Facebook and even Twitter. I promise you… Facebook isn’t donating a dollar for every person that posts that particular message. And, of course, you aren’t going to see some random woman’s bra or panties if you post the color of them in your status!

Just think about what you’re doing before you blindly click on or forward a link? And if you need links to click on, try these – posted by our community today. Keep up the great work, everyone!
