+ - Seeing atomic bonds before and after reactions->

Until now, scientists were only able to infer molecular structures. Using atomic force microscopy, the individual atomic bonds that connect the carbon molecule’s 26 carbon and 14 hydrogen atoms are clearly visible and look startlingly similar to the stick diagrams in chemistry textbooks."

Comment: Re:Physical Keyboard FTW (Score 2) 173

I used to be all for physical keyboards ... preferred to actually press on buttons and can cancel phone calls in my pocket without looking and no accidental swipes or such ... however I did envy the touchscreen users for their much larger displays!

I had a BB 9105 Pearl and then got myself the Z10 as the Pearl was feeling it's age and I've not looked back since! The Z10 is really easy to use and quick. Typing with the Z10 is amazing - all my friends actually like how you can flick words up and string full sentences with real words rather than some alpha-numberic coded gibberish at great pace.

One of the reasons I went away from the physical button phone, apart from the larger display, is that I preferred the old-school candybar phone button layout - I can't handle those tiny but full keyboard button layouts! Friends who have them vouch for them but just not for me! Hope BB do well though cos I really think there new range is good.

ok, let me help you out a little... 1% of a billion users is still a significant amount of users. Or you can say the desktop Linux users aren't worth designing for as they are small percentage.

are you really telling me a games console isn't a pc in different packaging? Nowadays there's not much difference between the two anyway. Additionally several games are better played with keyboard/mouse combos too... kinda like they were designed for the pc platform...

99% of people who need to do graphics design and editing GIMP indeed serves as a fine replacement ... 99% of what size of population of users? How many are that 1%? Also, I don't understand your point, you clearly point out that there are programs better supported in Windows but still say all of those are far superior to Windows in every way

Additionally, what's with the statement: unless you're one of the idiots who think computers are for playing games ... please tell me what computer games are supposed to be played on...

One good suit is worth a thousand resumes.
