Any scientist that is absolutely OK with pissing off uneducated rabid republicans is a hero in my book.

Carl Sagan and others had no problems calling the uneducated what they are. And none of the best human beings on this planet backed down in the face of religious stupidity.

Just Ask Galileo and Giordonano Brunio what it was like to be imprisoned by a bunch of idiots in power.

Not if they slapped the press all over with it. The best way to combat sony is to humiliate it in every media possible. get it out there that they STOLE her music and are making millions off of her hard work.

Under the DMCA Sony needs to pay her $22.7 Trillion dollars for her losses. Use SONY's own bullshit made up numbers, bankrupt the whole fucking company over it like they do to people that can't defend themselves.

Nexus tablet is better in every way, and they price this thing at Mini ipad pricing? are they nuts?

Dont buy any of this crap, Nexus7 or Samsung Pro tab 12.2 are the only two real android tablets at honest pricing.

Yes that 12.2 tablet is sexy as freaking hell and the most business usable tablet out there. it lets me view CAD files perfectly with clients.

"Would you take a real Rolls Royce to an unauthorized dealer for repairs?"

you bet your ass I would. I take my BMW to a non BMW mechanic. in fact I refuse to let the thieves at the BMW dealership TOUCH my BMW as they are no talent hacks.

Only a complete and utter fool believes that authorized means anything other than scam.

Their MSP430 is great tech but their libraries suck horribly. They need to embrace the public community and less of their in house engineers on making libraries that are worth using AND stop using a compile/IDE that is complete crap and crippled.

the GCC toolchain is decent but still clunky as all hell.
