An anonymous reader writes "Medical Daily reports: 'Video conferences may be known for putting people to sleep, but never like this. Dr. Thomas Hemmerling and his team of McGill's Department of Anesthesia achieved a world first on August 30, 2010, when they treated patients undergoing thyroid gland surgery in Italy remotely from Montreal. The approach is part of new technological advancements, known as 'Teleanesthesia', and it involves a team of engineers, researchers and anesthesiologists who will ultimately apply the drugs intravenously which are then controlled remotely through an automated system.'"

This is why I don't like service bundles. They ban you for a group/blog/whatever violation, and suddenly you lose access to your email, profile, etc. etc. So I do use gmail, but I use a different account for google groups, and a different account for App Domain. It's the only way to defend yourself from their free, unmonitored, unsupported, 100% auto-managed services.

People still believe the Osborne Effect???

These days, it's a given that any tech gadget that comes out has a V.Next well under way.

iPad 2 is already half way done. Nexus 3 is being written as we speak. Office 2012 is being worked on.
If you are buying an iPhone today, your first question is "When did the last version come out?"

The first segment of the wiki page is all about THE MYTH for intertube's sake!
