It doesn't matter if he's dead, or if the case isn't relevant anymore. Who cares about its legal status. The heist captured the public imagination. The audacity of it, the lingering mystery. People will still be talking about it in 100 years, just like people still talk about wild west stage coach robberies.
Or Slashdot just became trite and boring and I only check it out for a few minutes once every week or two.
Times change, websites fade.
Wasn't that the plot of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest?
It's funny. Apple had a hand in ARM's founding. They were collaborating on RISC chips with Acorn, and that was spun-off into ARM. Apple owned a decent chunk of it for a while, but I don't know when they sold that share off.
This is why you never accept a vape from Bugs Bunny.
Felder is an asshole, and you know it.
Right, I'd forgotten about the Zune's ability to "squirt" songs.
I can't believe they used that term.
I wonder what this means for Windows 10 Mobile.
The tiny but dedicated fanbase kept insisting that an x86-based "Surface Phone" was on the way "any time now", and was going to be the platform's saviour. But now there's no Atom, and I doubt a Core M is going to fit in there anytime soon.
The Xbox 360 had a PowerPC-based chip as well, named Xenon. The original devkits for it were PowerMac G5s.
The GameCube, Wii, and Wii U were also all based around PowerPC.
Sure, they might piss off a lot of OEM partners, but what are those partners going to do? Switch to Windows Phone?
Hypothetical situation: Let's say you travel to another country where you don't speak the language.
"I don't speak the language" isn't a Get Out Of Jail Free card. People may make exceptions for you, but those exceptions will only get you so far. You have to make an extraordinary effort to learn the language, or accept that you're going to have to be isolated with others who speak yours.
Social interaction is a lot like that. Some people may make exceptions for you based on your disability, but acting out and then falling back on your disability as an excuse is just going to rub most people the wrong way. I struggle too. I've got ADHD and social anxiety, which makes me seem aloof and distant.
Oh, and that woman who called you "sexist" for opening the door for her? She's got a problem too. I've run into people like that, and they're impenetrable walls.
Interest in space wore off when the glamorous visions of the Space Age wore off, and as a culture we became aware of the banal realities of it.
But kids have started to get interested in space again, thanks to Chris Hadfield's charisma and social media savvy.
We need to *keep* them interested, though.
You can have that if I can have a device that disables all motorcycles within 500m of my house.
Such noisy machines.
"Huh, looks like I accidentally my submission somehow."
Maybe you accidentally your keyboard.
How many NASA managers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? "That's a known problem... don't worry about it."
