comment I'm using Chrome and Chrome Sync; does Google have access to my passwords?
"This level of trust is more than I would want to place in them" "Don't trust us? Erm, we have root." (Quote regards Ubuntu, but the sentiment is the same.) As you say, only a fool trusts no one. Google is certainly a company I'd be willing to trust.

That looks exceptionally uncomfortable to use...

comment Does any mouse really have 11 buttons?
@Phoshi, Indeed, pretty much all of the Razer brand hardware is aimed at PC gaming. While most mice these days have LMB, CMB/wheel, RMB, and many have two more buttons to function as forward/back, Razer's products come with many additional programmable buttons. (Both their mice and keyboard have them.) Razer isn't the only company to produce things like this, but they are possibly the most famous for it.

comment Do cabled connections and Wi-Fi “use” the same bandwidth?
+1; A greedy torrent client can certainly get you a zippy download, but at the cost of pretty much everything else sharing your connection.

comment How are pseudorandom and truly random numbers different and why does it matter?
"Pseudo-random number generators... generate predictable numbers with the correct distribution" -- Just because it's a PRNG doesn't guarantee that it has perfect distribution (in fact, the commercial ones by and large don't, for exactly the reasons outlined in these answers). While they may be predictable given sufficient information (the algo used, starting seed, output values, w/e), they still have variance.
