What could possibly go wrong...?

Gollancz in the UK have 2 series, Science Fiction Masterworks and Fantasy Masterworks. There's a good selection of well known and forgotten books in the series. The SF mostly covers from the 1950's onwards while the Fantasy version goes back as far as Dunsany & Eddison. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SF_Masterworks/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantasy_Masterworks/ PS looks like pricing bots have had their way with new copies of them on Amazon.
If Apple's laptop assembly is anything like Dell's one person is give all the parts and its assembled in one spot. That amount of errors sounds like it was built by a new start and therefore its training/quality that failed. Dell laptop assembly required 10-15 laptops an hour. Servers was 4-5.
The removal of the OtherOS option was not the reason for the current crack. The OtherOs was removed because George Hotz figured out a crack involving the OtherOS option. He released that crack in Jan 2010 and Sony removed the option in March 2010. The current cracker crew cracked it in 9 months while having 3 years of people exploring lots of dead ends for them to ignore. Yes, a small percentage of people will use the now open PS3 to run homebrew. 99.99% of people will use the crack to run pirate games. Free always trumps $.
Wait until the soccer moms discover Main Battle Tanks. In 100% of crashes of SUV vs Main Battle Tanks the MBT occupants survived unhurt.

Quick lets ban everything except the guns. The terrorists own incompetence will prevent them from using guns. The people will give up their freedom before their guns. And then find that even a well regulated milita/terrorist group isn't much use against an armored division.
We conquered a large portion of the world fueled on whiskey but when we left, the empire collapsed.
The initial killings are not the problem. It does appear to be a case of wrong place, wrong time for the reporters. The outrage is the killing of the Good Samaritans who saw a wounded man crawling the road, stopped to help him and were executed for it.
Giving up and offering a lower priced flim ticket or cd wont work either because free will always trump x$ (whatever cost it takes to make a product and give you the money to make another one).
As a former Dell Server operator, systems of that type were expected to be built in 8 to 10 minutes from motherboard install, rear fan, processor, heatsink, ram, CD drive(s), floppy drive, harddrive(s)and cards. And a quick test to make sure it boots. And the guy in the video forgot to connect the floppy drive.
DeWinterZero writes "Bluesnews.com is reporting that that Infinity Ward, creators of the billion dollar selling Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, have lost their studio heads due to allegations of "breaches of contract and insubordination." The owner/publisher is Activision. Its the latest controvery in a long run since the release of the game in November."
