Definitely... I was thinking about posting that link to a discussion I've been in on getting Siri to work in the corporate environment (firewall rules, etc.), but I didn't because the email address is associated with my dev account.

The iPad CAN be produced for less than $500, and it is. Don't forget that Apple has made long-term commitments with the memory manufacturers, so they've even got better deals than that...

How Do You Keep Up With Science Developments? 337

malraid writes "As a nerd who used to love science back in high school (specially physics), I now find myself completely disconnected from any and all scientific developments and news. How do you try to stay up to date with scientific developments? Science journals? Whatever makes it into Slashdot's front page? Books? Magazines? I'm looking for something engaging and informative, for not something that will require me to go and get a PhD just to be able to comprehend."

Beware of TinyUmbrella. It does what it is supposed to do, but if you ever have to use it, it doesn't clear out your hosts file properly.

As a result, if you ever try to install a new firmware from Apple, it will fail. Fixing that is as simple as manually removing the line it adds from your hosts file... but if you forget to do that first, it's going to take you hours and hours to get your phone working.
