According to Jobs, 'These are devices that need to work, and you can't do that if you load any software on them.' In a similar vein, Jobs said in a MSNBC article that, 'Cingular doesn't want to see their West Coast network go down because some application messed up.'"

It appears to have crawled there in an attempt to re-establish contact with the lander after the lander had already died.
But the pictures aren't clear enough to definitively ID the rover, and it's possible Sojourner simply took off on its own. If it were miraculously still alive after 10 years, it could be 3 kilometers away from Pathfinder — and probably impossible to find, even with MRO."
Wowzer writes: "With the arrival of The Burning Crusade next week Tuesday, it's no surprise Blizzard announced today that World of Warcraft is now played by more than 8 million gamers around the world. From the article: "World of Warcraft has also achieved new regional subscriber milestones, with more than 2 million players in North America, more than 1.5 million players in Europe, and more than 3.5 million players in China." Next week WoW's servers will be undergoing their weekly maintenance on Monday instead of the regular Tuesday. So when The Burning Crusade launches in the night of Monday to Tuesday, there won't be any interruptions for gamers assuming the 9,000+ servers won't melt."
