Apple has had its share of failures, reminds me of the Apple Lisa.

It's bemusing you had to go back 30 years to be reminded of an Apple failure. ;)

I dislike Apple (as a company) even more than Microsoft now, but your statement just underscores how successful Apple has been in the past decade. Microsoft? Not so much.

what about the Mac Cube?

Do people actually have locksmiths change the door locks on their houses? I mean if you've locked yourself out yeah, call one in... but to actually install a lock?

happens all the time at businesses. When was the last time you saw the head of accounting re-keying the front door of the office building at which you work?

I've seen this before. A bit back, an IT recruiter contacted me about a position available with New Balance's E-Commerce division. I had never been to their site before, so I checked it out. I passed on the job, but ever since then, I see NB Web Express banner ads all over the place, and I don't ever remember seeing them in the past. As far as the cookies themselves go, it doesn't really bother me. If I want to go someplace truly anonymously, I know how to do so, but otherwise I don't really care of someone can see part of my browsing history. I've got a family member who is completely paranoid about the stuff, even though she doesn't even really understand what a cookie actually is (and I've tried explaining it numerous times).

I had the same experience... they herded all of us into the gym (2nd grade) to watch it live because of McAuliffe.... I don't remember exactly why, but our class was late for some reason and by the time we got there, it had already blown up. I had no idea what was going on at the time.
