The JoyPoll was...

When huge companies like Google complain that they are being picked on, do you feel sorry for them?

  • Not really.
  • Depends if I like the company or not.
  • In this case, I feel sorry for Google, as they are being picked on by patent bullies.
  • Give me a break! Google has been giving away Android on the backs of hard working geeks who invented stuff. It's time for Google to pay up.
  • Good for them! The Internet was made for whining.

    We were an Amazon Associate for over 15 years, but soon after we published a comic unflattering to Amazon, they canceled our account.

    When we tried to find out why, we received this reply... "under the terms of the Operating Agreement, we may terminate your account at any time, with or without cause. This termination is final and not subject to appeal." Gee, thanks Jeff.

    But don't worry, we will still bite the hands that feed us, even if they don't help feed us anymore.

     About us...

    The Joy of Tech is a comic about technology and pop culture, created by Nitrozac and Snaggy, and updated three times a week. We like to feature the people and events that are making today's tech news.

    We've been making comics on the web since early 1999, and The Joy of Tech just celebrated its 10th anniversary. We're very proud to be featured regularly on places like AllThingsD (from the people who publish The Wall Street Journal), Bloomberg Businessweek, Macworld UK magazine, Folha in Brazil, and others, both on the web and in print.

    We currently live on Vancouver Island, Canada, where we have a lovely perspective of the silicon valleys to the south. We make The Joy of Tech using Apple computers, mostly on our MacBook Pros, running Mac OS X Snow Leopard. We use software from Apple, Adobe, BBedit,, and others, including Microsoft (yep, we do use Microsoft Office for Mac on occasion). Nitrozac uses a Wacom tablet to draw her illustrations.

    with three blade propellers!
