The ad just ran (did you know that you can search the Internet using Google?), and Apple certainly doesn't have to worry about losing its claim to having produced the best Super Bowl ad ever. In fact, you might want to check out the spoof 'Parisian Love' apparently inspired — 'Is Tiger Feeling Lucky?' — if you want to see a better pitch for Google."

I second Unison. It has pretty robust configuration options, and it's handled my synchronization needs wonderfully the last few years. It's basically rsync with an awesome wrapper to make it better at two-way mirroring.
Or University, where many programmers are. And since a lot of people have children, August is a popular time to take work leave to go somewhere with them.
Er... Rape isn't one of the United States' fundamental human rights. And it doesn't seem that they were knowingly and willingly breaking a law -- they thought it was in the jurisdiction of the US, where is isn't illegal.
Maybe they just flew The Crimson Permanent Assurance building across the pond. =)
I completely agree, but I'd be willing to guess that the reasoning has to do with treaties and/or our relationship with Britain. Offering asylum would imply that we think they are a "bad" nation with unjust laws (which they seem to be), and would hurt our relationship with them. Basically, world governments are a bunch of middle schoolers.
The Romans made great use of human urine in their day; why shouldn't we do the same? In ancient Rome, citizens were actually "taxed" their urine; that is, the government required that they give it to them. And then they sold it back to them in more useful forms. Sounds like a great way to get our government out of the financial mess they're in!
I've always been impressed with how ridiculous the CoS can be, but this is a new low, even for them.
Only on bridges and other places where they are specifically needed to protect the well-being of the motorists. The internet already has these; they're called firewalls.
I bet it gets intercepted by pirates. Watch the parts end up on eBay in 6-9 months.
A pop up asking me whether I want to view ads or not would be worse than having inline ads themselves. The only way this would be acceptable is if it has a "master" checkbox letting me turn off the whole feature. And have it checked by default.
Air conditioning is for the weak! Seriously though, if you stay hydrated and wear Summer clothing, it's not that bad.
If there are cars lined up along the side of the road parked, or otherwise so that you could be doored, take the lane (ride in the middle of the right-most traffic lane). You're legally entitled to, and safety dictates that you should. Sorry to hear you got hit; I hope you got the jerk to pay for the repairs at least.
Most people who travel by car spend about a third of their income on transportation. If you drive an expensive, fast car, I can see how you could end up spending half of it.
