Last night while browsing the online news sources I came across an item from ABC news, the headline reads “Google Chrome Named Top Internet Browser” and it basically goes on to say that Google Chrome has now beat out Microsoft Internet Explorer as the most used Web browser. This was shocking news to me! Not because Chrome is now numero uno, that was bound to happen!  I was shocked by both the fact that it took this long to happen, and that “Holy shit!” people still use Internet Explorer to surf the Internet?!?

It’s like finding out that people still use Netscape Navigator! Ok, well, not exactly! Navigator has been dead for years, but I honestly thought that people only used IE to download either Google Chrome or Firefox! I had no idea that people actually still seriously used IE! I’m sorry if I am offending anyone who browses my blog, who is a die hard IE user, but I am not intending for this to be a slam against IE! It’s just that I had no idea it was still used!

Let’s be honest here! When you hear people talk about internet browsers, they tend to talk about either Chrome or Firefox. I can’t think of the last time I have heard someone mention that they enjoy IE. So if IE was more popular than Chrome until now, how come it’s userbase never discusses the joys of explorer surfing?


Forgive WHAT?!

Tiger Woods in 2007

So, I sat down today, and flipped on the television. One thing I try to do at least once a day, is watch a little news. You know, so I can be informed, and not have to worry about some major disaster happening, while I sit totally oblivious watching old star trek re-runs.

Anyway, I flip over to HLN (HeadLine News) and take a quick listen, and the first thing that pops up in big bold text is “Do You Forgive Him?”. The question is in regards to the whole Tiger Woods incident. Apparently, the fact that he cheated is so unbelievable, that even after a year, the news agencies are refusing to just let it go.

Personally, I don’t see the big deal. People cheat! It may come as a bit of a shocker, but they do. It’s a sad truth. Movie Stars, Actors, Sports Figures and Political figures are not exempt. That being said, I have to wonder, why the news is asking in a poll if we forgive him? I’m sorry? Was he cheating with all of our spouses? Is that it? If not, then I don’t think it really concerns me, you or anyone. It’s a private affair, and he doesn’t need anyone to forgive him, but his wife, because she’s the only one who has been hurt. His fans? He didn’t do jack to them!

God, I hate when people sit around and expect a celebrity to appologise to them, for something the star did to someone else.

Just sayin’
