I just bought myself an iPod Touch for 150 GBP. My first Apple device. It's reliable, well crafted and easy to use. And, despite the 'proprietary lock-in hell', I'm still able to use Chrome, MS Office and Photoshop - on my laptop.

It's nice to take a stroll around a walled garden from time to time. You should try it.

I dont think it was awful as submissions go, but I suppose they could have clarified what a database is, what type-safe is, and what a query is.

To be fair, the title of the story was 'Type Safety Coming To DB Queries.' If you don't know what four of those six words mean, then it probably isn't for you.

It's time to boot, do your boot ROMs know where your disk controllers are?
