Comment At last!!! (Score 1) 7

I'm sure that Apple lost many of the 3G iphone customers from the 4.0 update. Most iphone 3g users that I know complain about this problem for about some time now. I'm one of them. I even had to google a way back to 3.1.3 version of the iphone OS to have my cell phone back. Also we don't have an official way to go back to an older version and we have to "hack" a way through it with 3rd party solutions. I hope ios 4.1 will fix the problem permanently and also I hope they improve their quality control at backwards compatibility for software that comes out from now on.

kapede writes: Something rotten in Einstein's theory of relativity. Does mass expand with velocity, or doesn't it? The author argues that the general public is ill-informed about the more than a century old theory of relativity. Mass does not increase with velocity. Yet, inertia does as it is related to total energy. The author presents an all-encompassing framework for understanding mass energy and momentum (a simple annotated triangle). No easy read, but worth the effort.

Submission + - Spam from the White House?

An anonymous reader writes: Fox News reports that numerous persons have claimed to have received unsolicited e-mail about health care reform from the White House's David Axelrod.

In addition, a Fox blog reports that "Fox on Friday filed a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain the full e-mail distribution list for the Axelrod health care e-mail and all internal White House e-mails about the list's creation."

"Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth. -- Alfred North Whitehead
