I'll send the last one to my sister who had her birthday yesterday - I didn't get a reply to the email I sent on her birthday.

If I don't get a reply to this one I'll know it's true and inform you.

We will know the future has happened when people call in sick because they have a computer virus. A new defense in criminal court would be "The computer virus made me do it". If you think this is far off, think about the progress in thought-controlled prosthetics. I doubt anyone will ever call their voice-controlled automated home system "HAL 9000" not only because of the image problems, but because of the irresistible temptation it would cause for computer hackers.

In response to the one about speeding tickets...

It made me think of an old sign they used to have just over the border, when going from New Jersey to Pennsylvania. It was huge and stated the various fine amounts for speeding, depending how fast you were going.

There is a joke about it being interpreted by people from NJ as meaning "Unless you want people to think you are poor, floor it!".

Hilarious, and informative. Reckon' the one about the bacon hangover-cure is true?

Why are you taking screen shots of text? Why not just copy and paste and wrap the QUOTE tag around it? Like this:

While IE11 on Windows 8.1 is -- for obvious reasons given the newer OS's emphasis -- heavily reliant on touch and gestures, IE11 on Windows 7 is a keyboard-and-mouse application. It also places the address bar at the top of the window, unlike at the bottom as does IE11 on Windows 8.1's "Modern" nee "Metro" user interface (UI).

The Windows 7 browser also omitted support for SPDY -- the Google-designed page load acceleration protocol -- won't sync open tabs between machines, as does Google's Chrome, Mozilla's Firefox and IE11 on Windows 8.1; and cannot keep as many tabs open as 8.1's version.

What do Jimmy Fallon, a cat's paw and a severed finger have to do with the new iPhone? Read on!

Sept. 20 is the first day you can order the new iPhone 5S. The new phone comes with new colors, a better camera and a more advanced processor. Reviewers seem to agree that the new software works really well. But the feature that everyone's talking about – and goofing on -- is the fingerprint sensor, called Touch ID, which can be used to access your phone. Jimmy Fallon was one of the many comedians who joked about the futuristic technology, saying that phone thieves would now cut off a victim's finger in order to use the stolen phone.

Fortunately, a severed finger cannot grant access into someone's iPhone. At least according to Mashable. The news site talked to an expert who said the sensor technology requires a live finger to grant access.

Giving the new iPhone more than the finger

2) Flip-flops actually flop when worn - they aren’t glued to the bottom of your foot.

3) When wading in water, your clothes get wet - but only up to the point you actually waded. The rest of you stays dry.

4) If you hail and hop into a taxi at the airport when someone was already waiting for one, they’ll get mad and shout at you, or try to pick a fight.

The tech industry can't be trusted on privacy. That's the message we're getting these days – the one we see in headlines about Google Glass and Prism, and in ad campaigns like Microsoft's "Scroogled." We experience it firsthand when targeted advertisements pop up in our news feed or our search results, and when our photos become the stuff of Web commercials. Browser cookies, webmail monitoring, and other intrusive practices may be perfectly defensible, but they don't poll well, and never have.

On privacy, it's Facebook and Google versus small tech
