How To Uninstall McAfee Antivirus

I was tempted to put this in the tutorials section but I didn’t so here it is. here is John McAfee the founder of McAfee Antivirus mocking and ranting about the company he founded. The video is entertaining and funny, but a warning it contains some profanity, enjoy!

A documentary about his life is due for release before the end of the year and he said he’s in discussions with Hollywood about making a feature film. George Jung, the former cocaine baron whose life was captured in the 2001 film Blow, is writing McAfee’s biography and Portland cartoonist Chad Essley is working on a graphic memoir with him.

Facebook’s Privacy Rules

What really happened with Facebook, Google, and the Telecom companies in relation to the NSA’s Prism, we don’t know for sure, and we may never know.  If the fullest allegations are true it is quite a frightening thought to internet privacy.  Anyways enjoy this humor comic… or frightening reality…

Not positive if this is real it showed up on a less than reputable website, but wither way it’s a cool “Easter egg ” hidden in a ad magazine.   I really like when companies do this, and a great example for Christmas.

Funny Google Suggestions

It’s well known, start typing in a search, and Google offers suggestions before you’ve even finished typing.  Often these suggestions are funny, strange, slightly odd, etc.  But how does Google come up with these search suggestions?

Suggestions Based On Real Searches – real searches done by other people, largely ranked on popularity.

Suggestions Can Vary By Region & Language – Location is important, the country you’re in, the state or province, even the city, all can produce different suggestions.

Previously Searched Suggestions – Perhaps the most important factor in the auto complete, and responsible for many funny or rude suggestions.

These are the three basic ways Google works to provide you with search suggestions, but there are many more factors Google takes into account, maybe I’ll write more about it in a latter article, but for now, here are a bunch of funny Google suggestions.
