There's a difference: HFCs means "hydrofluorocarbons", while "HFCS" means "high-fructose corn syrup".

Perhaps it might have something to do with the fact that juice from concentrate counts as 100% juice. Might they have been reconstituting it with HFCS water instead of plain water? I looked on Skeptics Stack Exchange but they couldn't turn up the lawsuit either.

It's general knowledge in typography that Helvetica is the most legible typeface. Low-resolution devices present challenges that keep that from being true, so adaptations had to be made.

Of course, pretty soon if you want security updates you'll have to accept Helvetica, even on your low-resolution device. But you should stop being such a loser with a three-year-old computer and give Apple some more money.

Maybe they'll have "Mac Mode" ready for the iPhone by then.

As long as the guest is OK booting under either hardware (physical and virtual) dynamically, it should work fine. It's been a long time since mainstream OSs couldn't do that.

Does a Windows guest still require the user to telephone someone in India when switching between physical and virtual machines after having used up all Internet reactivations?

Well, there are a handful of sites like where you can test your code.

I first heard of that recently when asking what a student whose family owns only a tablet should use for CS homework. But for one thing, interactive code doesn't work, and for another, it would need to be a packaged app in order to work offline.

Any given program, when running, is obsolete.
