Daniel_Lee writes: High above the African continent, tall, dense cumulonimbus clouds, meaning 'column rain' in Latin, are the result of atmospheric instability. The clouds can form alone, in clusters, or along a cold front in a squall line. The high energy of these storms is associated with heavy precipitation, lightning, high wind speeds and tornadoes.

+ - Mac Users More Liberal Than PC Users 2

Submitted by adeelarshad82
adeelarshad82 writes: A recent survey conducted on 400,000 people where 52% of respondents were self-described PC people, 25% were Mac users and 23% were neither shows that Mac users are more politically liberal than their PC-using counterparts. 58% of Mac users were "liberal," as compared to 38% of PC users. Amongst other things, the survey also indicated that Mac users were more urban, younger and more educated than PC users which could potentially be a contributing factor towards being more liberal.

Although I doubt graphics will ever be a super important thing to me, it'll be nice to not have to listen to people constantly complain about Nintendo and graphics.
