The velocity of A _relative_ to B is velocityA+velocityB. There's no rule in physics that says two photons travelling to a common point from opposite directions are slowed down relative to each other.
If I can see two lights located one light second away from me in opposing directions and they're both turned on simultaneously the photons that reach me will both arrive at the same time, one second after they're turned on. They're moving at light speed relative to the medium they're travelling through, not each other.

My experiences with Snow Leopard vs Lion


  • 2D array of spaces, replaced with 1D. Like remembering exactly how many screens away your work is when using multiple screens?
  • Tiling all windows in one screen so you can easily pick out the app window you want to access, replaced with ability to see all windows of one app at a time. Like working with only one app?
  • Ability to easily reorganise windows with one guesture, then a single click per window, replaced with a three step process per window. Say I have 10 windows I want to move, first move to the screen with the app window I want to move, then open mission control, then drag the app window to the screen you want it in.

The appeal dismissed today had the potential to impact internet users and the internet industry profoundly as it sets a legal precedent surrounding how much ISPs are required to do to prevent customers from downloading movies and other content illegally."
