How can they be "getting out of the way"? There are only two choices, a) stick with Shell and snub Greenpeace, or b) dump Shell and please Greenpeace. There is no middle ground where they can please both.
I wonder what the over/under is on how long before the new ebay creates yet another version of PayPal?
"Have fun stormin' da castle." "Think it'll work?" "It would take a miracle."
If black holes grow by the absorbing the quantum foam, then the universe is slowly gaining mass as new matter is spontaneously being generated but not getting a chance to vanish back to where it came from. This means that eventually the cosmic expansion will halt and be reversed. This universe could end not in heat death but a big crunch. We may have the final answer in the ultimate fate of the universe if this theory is correct.
Hey, after you get bombed, you can get bombed!
rDouglass writes "MuseScore, the open source music notation editor, and pianist Kimiko Ishizaka have released a new recording and digital edition of Bach's Goldberg Variations. The works are released under the Creative Commons Zero license to promote the broadest possible free use of the works. The score underwent two rounds of public peer review, drawing on processes normally applied to open source software. Furthermore, the demands of Bach's notational style drove significant advancements in the MuseScore open source project. The recording was made on a Bösendorfer 290 Imperial piano in the Teldex Studio of Berlin. Anne-Marie Sylvestre, a Canadian record producer, was inspired by the project and volunteered her time to edit and produce the recording. The project was funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign that was featured on Slashdot in March 2011."

Figures that the only time Teller talks, it's to sue a guy....
Every web browser as auto spell-check capabilities these days.
Am I the only one who finds irony of the use of "as" in this sentence instead of "has"?
Software vendors make money selling their software. But you can't sell somebody the same version of the OS that they already have, unless you are Apple, then you just move the OS version up by 1/10th and the iFanboys will buy it. Windows 7 came about because XP had nearly reached the saturation point. Windows 8 because 7 isn't giving people a reason to leave XP. The big problem is we really hit the level of maximum usability in your UI and now you have to make changes for the sake of making it different, so they rip out the functionality and claim it's "improving the experience". No thanks, I'll stick with what I have for as long as I can and hope that sanity returns when I eventually have no choice and have to update because of hardware issues.
Just wait until the nuns get a hold of it. They will force it to be right handed if they have to break all the universe's rulers over their knuckles to make it so!
I'll go "All In".
I have some spiral notebooks, some journals, scratch paper that have whatever random stuff that comes to my mind. I like fountain pens and I find they are easier for me to write with.
SpaceX to the rescue! It would be a big boost for them if the Falcon 9 and Dragon could pick up the slack.
