I haven't heard anything definitive, but are they going to throw a massive closeout sale ala Circuit City, or just lock the door? If their prices are reasonable I may go raid them for their DIY electronics gear.

Potatoes that make electricity.. small electric loops.. etc.
contrary to what they thought, such events are not random,
Random? Ask the good people on the Rodger Young who were attacked by a lobbed meteor from the Klendathu system, or the near 10 million lives lost in Buenos Aires when that rock landed. Good people. Innocent people. The SkyMarshal is gathering for an all out retaliatory strike to avenge the deaths. It would be an excellent time to step up and serve and become a citizen! Do your part now!
Would you like to know more?
Is that a good book line? It sounds like it is in a similar vein as say the Dresden Files, the Laundry Files, or the Sandman Slim series. Dealing with the other worldly that the regular folk don't see.
If those high salaries are in Silicon Valley or New York, though, they might not seem as high as half the same rate would in Omaha, or Houston, or Raleigh.
Confirmed - as a Nebraskan $207,000 appears high and desirable.
People laughed when I said the iWatch's biometric tracking would be a "requirement" to run the facebook iWatch app or a myriad of other apps. It is painful that this is a reasonably foreseeable direction for these companies.
Really.. Really guys, REALLY! - if we are getting a camera upgrade for the earth selfies there better be new filters. I mean, I totes *HATE* having to deal with the same boring filters. Ugh! I..can 't.. even!
You forgot one of the more important archival facets - microfiche! Where's your microfiche back log there Amazon?
Oh, yeah, you don't!
Viva la Microfiche!
I do love the smell of collateral misinformation in the morning!
It was mildly amusing that the author's wiki account was suspended. Better late than never..
For all I know there might be gnomes partying around the premises right now.
On the scale of one to ten, how hot are your average gnomes that party at your vacation house?
.... said the Spider to the Fly.
Seriously - once this genie is out of the bottle there is no way to bottle it back up. The fear of employment repercussions, insurance, etc all become a concern.
“For me, I’m so excited about the possibilities to improve things for people, my worry would be the opposite," he told the New York Times's Farhad Manjoo. "We get so worried about these things that we don’t get the benefits Right now we don’t data-mine healthcare data. If we did we’d probably save 100,000 lives next year."
Eeesh.. I heard this same logic, earlier this year, being applied to the pooling of all NHS records for pharmacons and researches to peel through in the UK. "Think of all the causality linking and better and better benefits".. Eeep! What?
Heh - yes.. this is what I was going to post! It seems like a solid, and compelling, reason to jump into the tablet world..finally.
Riiiiiiiiiight.. "implosion". More like someone was poking around into territories - specifically outlined as forbidden - in the 1953 Benthic Treaty of Azores with BLUE HADES and got their expensive little toy slapped.
Try and not get us wiped out there Cameron.. thanks.
Oh, hey Azriel Abyss, the Prince of Sorrows. I didn't see you come in.
Joking aside, what a sad outlook. Sure history highlights the brutality and atrocities, and if you do not accept the achievements in beauty then I point to the kindness and compassion that happens on a day to day basis. The overwhelming wash of small actions that are not globally interesting to make the history books, but profoundly affect the parties involved. Someone jumping a car for a stranger late to a job interview.. donating to a food pantry.. just stopping to say hello to a coworker on a bad day.. or a young mind sparked to better people through community action.
I guess if I were to discount those actions, and only take humanity for the history book cliff notes of violence, then I would definitely pull up a seat on goth talk. Thankfully I don't and I see a slow progression of betterment. Maybe we'll hit that sort of 'awakening' (as seen with tv tropes with alien archetypes), but if not I think we'll do pretty okay.
