Comment: Awesome! (Score -1, Troll) 495 495

It will be nice to see them sell older (new for them, I guess) tech for insanely high prices as usual! I mean... the i7 has been around for, what? Four years or so now? Apple will undoubtedly sell them at the RELEASE prices, even though they are buying them for pennies on the dollar about now. GO GO TEAM APPLE!

Yes, I am aware that Apple fanboys will jump all over this and mod it down to hell, but I don't care if the truth hurts you. I mean, hahaha... $2,500 for four year old processors and nothing else new. Even still only running dual-channel for memory. Lame.

Chrome is okay, but I hate the minimal control you have over things like cookies. It's either all or none with Chrome. Then you have the lack of a sidebar for bookmarks and the bookmark interface itself is very unintuitive at best. There are other gripes as well, but those can mostly be solved with using various extensions.

Other than that, I like Chrome for its speed.

You are obviously not a Comcast customer. I have basic service with internet (no phone, no pay channels) access. In the last 3 years I have lost about a dozen channels I used to have access to and my bill has gone UP. I am now paying for the cheapest "digital" plan and cheapest internet and that is a $168/month bill for me. I am sure if you toss in pay channels and higher internet speeds you could get even higher.

Astrophysicist Alfred Vidal-Madjar and colleagues at the Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris decided to test the idea...

Granted, NASA does have the firepower and crack soldiering skills necessary to invade and occupy Paris, but they haven't done it. (yet)

I am happy to know that NASA has soldiering skills. That means we will be able to fend off any alien invasion for sure!

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
