Secretary of the Obvious: Hillary Rodham Clinton

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that Iran is becoming a military dictatorship, a new U.S. accusation in the midst of rising tensions with Iran over its nuclear ambitions and crack down on anti-government protesters.

Speaking to Arab students at Carnegie Mellon's Doha campus, Clinton said Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps appears to have gained so much power that it effectively is supplanting the government.

"Iran is moving toward a military dictatorship," she said. "That is our view."

Well that is worse some how than a dictatorship by a bunch of Religious kooks with beards?

Does calling Iran, which has been as far as I remember ALWAYS been a dictatorship of some sort or another, a "Military Dictatorship" make them less appealing to the hippies and pacifists?

How much is she being paid to say come to these startling conclusions?

More Google Foolishness

The halfwits at Google have done another retarded thing. I tried to search on a computer product and was confronted with one of those "type in the letters/numbers" boxes to confirm that I am an actual person.

How about piss off. If Google thinks that people will sit and type in confirmation numbers every time they want to search they are more stupid than I'd thought.

I completed the search using live search.

Ruining Gmail

So for some reason unknown to me Gmail or the Overlords of Google have decided to "take on" Facebook. How? By making what was a simple effective mail service into an experience as complicated, intrusive and annoying as Facebook is. You know, Facebook. Someone you sort of hate has poked you. Someone who couldn't actually be bothered to meet you for coffee has invited you to play some stupid and pointless game. And oh the endless updates.

What exactly is Google thinking?

Hotmail was good. Then Microsoft took over and screwed it up by reducing the amount of storage space to nearly nothing unless you paid them money. Of course no one did and EVERYONE I know moved to Yahoo. Then Yahoo mail did something similar so everyone moved to Gmail. Gmails changes will not make people leave Facebook to go to Gmail. Making Myspace more like Facebook didn't help Myspace so why would it help Gmail? What it will do is make people leave Gmail. Once people leave they don't come back, just ask Hotmail and Yahoo.

Where to move to next?
