Comment: Steve Job's Kids (Score 1) 698

Too bad we can't get Steve Job's kids to post what they want to ask of their dad at this point in their lives. The worst part about someone dying is that the dead are never just a phonecall/text/email away (but those questions are about growing up and using you as a crutch). If you already have this much care for your daughter, she's going to turn out just right with what she's already learned from you. Better tell her to stay foolish.

Comment: This Guy has to be a True A** (Score 2, Interesting) 928

Every time I fly Southwest, their people are energetic and happy. They are probably the best in the business, probably a class unto themselves. This guy however, with what information has been let out, had to be extreme. I'd "luv" to hear what other passengers thought of his behavior!

I'm sure if one renews for ten years, the IT guy that was there at the beginning has moved on and his email address goes no where, except a honeypot.

Um, so: Curiosity? Multiple orders of magnitude more sophisticated hardware. Not to mention we are still -- simultaneously -- running Opportunity! More competition in space is a good thing for everyone, though, so long as we're not completely redundant in our efforts.
