Nissan should look into adding a small diesel-powered engine running a generator as a range extender, sort of like the Volt.
Maybe the "UFOs" we've been seeing for the last couple of centuries are scout craft for these star systems, making sure there's no civilizations along their path that could cause trouble.
Heck, I've found myself walking near people (in downtown Philadelphia) who were on their phone GIVING THEIR CREDIT CARD INFO! The first time I heard it I thought the person was just some random idiot, but I've since heard half a dozen other people doing the same thing!
Two books I've loved and re-read over and over; "The Traveller in Black" by John Brunner http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Traveller_in_Black/ and one mentioned by some other folks, "Jack of Shadows" by Roger Zelazny. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_of_Shadows/
Heck, I've seen paperbacks in our county library with a lot more than 26 stamps on their cards (this was a while ago...)
Simon R. Greens' "Nightside" series is a good read from this Urban Fantasy genre.
So the Vampire Black Hole uses the explosion of its preys' carcass to propel it to its next victim...
People should check out a series of "prequel" comics that came out a while before the movie. They go into the ISO thing in more depth, and also the turning of Tron into a bad guy. Although they really should have put this sort of stuff IN the bloody movie, rather than making us search out the stuff.
Using the Firefox add-on "SkipScreen" takes a lot of the misery out of dealing with Mega-whatever, and a quite a few similar sites.
Yep. In one episode ( a Christopher Eccleston one, I think) a Dalek grabbed some guys head and sucked his face off.
If we could get that skyhook/space elevator thing worked out, it would be a perfect way to bring raw materials down. Or set up the refining/manufacturing facilities in orbit and get all the pollution and waste products off-planet. Cheap power from solar collectors up there, to.
That was from an album called "Snowflakes are Dancing" by Isao Tomita. It's music by Debussey performed on synthesizers ('70s vintage synthesizers). Here's a link to Amazon, where you can listen to samples from the album http://www.amazon.com/Debussy-Snowflakes-Dancing-Prelude-Tomita/dp/B00003OP6X
Do you think they might mean "wait a year before buying an iPhone 4"? Hmmm?
I believe the QT4 they're referring to is and obscure, little-used video codec called Quick Time, from some company called "Apple".
I've found one thing that Bing does better than Google, image searches. I was trying to find a picture that someone in a forum had described (but couldn't find) and I tried looking for it with Google. No dice, a ton of unrelated stuff as usual. Then, just for the halibut, I tried Bing. Came up on the first page. After that I've tried it with various other image searches, and Bing always came through. For any other types of searching though, Google is usually better.
