Microsoft's attempt to dominate the Internet by integrating this poor excuse of a browser with every Windows OS, although this was deemed illegal, they made some bullshit up about it being a core part of Windows. So in the end, they integrated this POS into Windows.
IE is buggy, has many security holes, is slow, supports ActiveX so websites can install their XXX dialers on our systems, and finally, it's not standards compliant, so 80%+ web pages have sloppy HTML which doesn't work with standards compliant browsers, only IE. How convenient.
Internet Explorer is the most COMMON browser, but NOT the most popular.
nVIDIA is a computer company well known for their GeForce line of graphics chips (they only make the chips and sell it to card vendors) and nForce line of high performance chipsets. nVIDIA had the reputation of being the leader in the graphics section, although their rival ATi has quickly closed the gap in recent years and now the two companies are locked in a never ending graphics war, with both sides briefly getting an upper hand here and there.
nVIDIA fanboy: ATi sucks.
ATi fanboy: nVIDIA sucks.
The proper way to express how you don't give a crap about something - you really don't care about something and it's impossible to not care any more. The common but incorrect variant "could care less" (which would technically imply that you do care about something) is widely used because of either a translation mistake into English, or those who blindly use phrases without taking a moment to understand their actual meaning.
Person A: A company just got sued for patent infringement!
Person B: *yawn* Oh really? I couldn't care less.
A Canadian computer hardware company, ATI Technologies (spelt ATi) is well known for their Radeon line of graphics chips. Their greatest rival is nVIDIA, and the two companies are forever in a war to outdo each other. As a result, there's an almost equal split between ATi and nVIDIA graphics card owners, who are also in a perpetual state of slagging each other off. (see fanboy)
fanATIc: GET THE RADEON!! NV SUCKZZZZ!!11!
nVIDIOT: GET THE GEFORCE! ATI SUCKZZ!!1!1
Normal person: I'll get the one that's the best performance / value.
id software's latest game (and engine). Doom 3's graphics are probably one of the best for it's generation - the only catch is that you'll need a monster of a computer to run it. But all those great graphics are pointless since you can't see shit. Doom 3's monsters are also said to be very scary - if you could see them.
Person A: I don't think my computer can handle Doom 3.
Person B: Don't worry, just turn off your monitor.
Originally developed as ARPANET in the US as a means for various institutes to communicate with each other even in an event such as war. The Internet has grown into a worldwide computer network where anyone can have a chat with anyone else almost anywhere in the world, and is a vast sorce of free information.
However, the Internet is slowly being clogged up with crap such as adware, spyware and viruses can spread like wildfire, not to mention that it is the biggest porn archive known to man.
Person A: I'm going on the Internet.
Person B: Pervert.
