Web 2.0 The web browser has been the dominant thin client, now rich client, for almost two decades, but can it compete with a new thin client that makes better technical choices and avoids the glacial standards process? I don't think so, as the current web technology stack of HTML/Javascript/Flash has accumulated so many bad decisions over the years that it's ripe for a clean sheet redesign to wipe it out.

I used to say "orientated" instead of "oriented" and my co-workers never let me hear the end of it.

I knew someone that pronounced Gigabyte as Jiga Byte... sounded like an idiot.


I prefer "oriented", but "orientated" is accepted as an English word. Pronunciation of gigabyte with a soft 'g' is also accepted, though not the preferred pronunciation. I prefer it, though. (b'duh! b'duh! b'duh!)
