You know how it is, we have all been there. You are sitting there while the IT guy is warbling away about the New Windows 7 and how the updated Graphical User Interface and improved memory management will result in greater performance and you have two thoughts. The first thing to come to mind is would it be possible to beat him to death with the heel of my stiletto and make it look accidental. The second is who is the most hated person at the moment.
Luckily, we have google to find out the answer to the second one. Using the Words 'I Hate...', we can find out by looking at the number of hits to get a snapshot of who the Internet is hating at the moment and it is quite eye opening.
