Comment Re:Someday iPad apps will be developed on an iPad (Score 1) 463

Back in 1984, the Macintosh was first released. The only way to create applications for it was to run the development tools on the Apple Lisa.

Then, it became possible to run MPW (Macintosh Programmer's Workshop) and then came Lightspeed C aka ThinkC aka Symantec C which ran natively on the Macintosh.

Today, the only way to create native applications for the iPad is by running the development tools on a Macintosh.

Perhaps there is a pattern here?

So... The radiation was important enough to stop him. But then the radioactive person effectively says "this is not the terrorist that you are looking for" and the police let him go on. What if it were a terrorist?

It sounds like every terrorist now knows what to say when they are stopped.

Either this stuff is important enough to legally restrict or it isn't!
