You can download the video as a mp4 from there.  I use VLC to play it and the loop control there is at the bottom. The icon is below.

What computer is she using?

That, my friend, is an Apple ][, ][+, or ][e with a green-screen monitor.  The design on the screen is the girl using either Logow to draw something interesting, or the Apple BASIC's PLOT command and some standard geometry formulas.

Indeed, looks like one of those.

Interesting that this is on MSN...

If you’re planning to sell your old Android smartphone then you need to think again because there is a weakness in the Android Factory Reset option that could be exploited to recover your login credentials, text messages, emails and pictures even if you have wiped its memory clean.

This definitely needs more attention ...(Ransomware Decryption and Removal Tool)... I hadn't realized the option even existed.

If you're a woman!?

That should have been #10.  My candidate for #11 is You are not now, never have been, and never will be on AOL.  :)

I really like this U.K. National Grid status
That is a seriously impressive dashboard.

This 'effective power' text will make your friend's iPhone crash if you send it to them.jpg

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/apple/11638930/Apple-releases-fix-for-effective-power-iPhone-crash-prank.html

I don't believe Apple has released the fix yet. So if you still want to crash some iPhones, you still can. How many people here want to do that and how many times do you want to do it?

^Guilty - There was a rash of iPhone crashes at our office the other day ... Which strangely coincided with a lot of giggling coming out of the IT department.

...Reason unknown. :-\ :D

Not a fix, but allegedly restoring access to the Messages.app (until crashed again?):

BioLite CampStove has been around for a couple of years and there's also PowerPot (no, it's not really good grass) that was a KickStarter project recently.
