Jeez - I knew this guy. For me this is what makes this story incredibly interesting.
He used to frequent a fairly small yoga class in Aptos about 10 years ago with his wife at the time. I remember he brought in a bunch of yoga books which he wrote and gave copies to everybody. I didn't know he was the McAfee guy at first but he seemed like an interesting person.
He later suffered from the local small-town rumor mill for something he did that I didn't pay attention to.
But this story is astounding to me! It reads like a gangster movie script.

The hardware is there to print from a WiFi device like an Android tablet. Windows computers are able to print this way with the drivers available to them so it may be a hack to do it from Android. You would need a conduit to allow all apps to print this way.

Actor Ben Stein’s controversial documentary, which blasts evolution in favor of intelligent design, is up for the sale to the highest bidder.That’s right. Between June 21 and June 28, you can submit bids online for all the rights to Stein’s “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” film. According to Forbes, it’s up for grabs as part of the liquidation of film producer Premise Media Holdings LP. The company filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in December 2009 and is now seeking to sell the rights, court papers show.
In the film, Stein—a lawyer and former speechwriter for President Richard Nixon as well as the monotone-voiced teacher in both the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and television’s “The Wonder Years”—argues that the academic world unfairly
punishes those who question evolution and support the theory of intelligent design."

The story would definitely not be the same!
The casino reportedly brings in an average of $23,100 per hour while it is open. Wednesday morning is not a busy time so the losses were likely less than that or conversely, what could have occurred over a weekend.
An intriguing bit of the story was that IBM technicians were called in to fix the problem, which wasn't described in any detail. I may be wrong, but I don't think IBM is in the slot machine software business, so I suspect the problem had to do with some networking software connecting the slot machines themselves."

The 1933 article on flying cars is wonderful. The article describes the general plan for a flying car infrastructure - using a lot of rubber - for flying cars - which use steam power. I would love to know what ever happened to these plans because it sounds like a sure thing from the tone of the article.
