I don't understand why these workhorses ( or the Space Shuttle, for that matter ) can't *evolve* ?
Actually they do. The current B-52, for example, is really the B-52H, which came after the B-52G, etc. Likewise the C-130 is the C-130J, though some units still fly the H model (and there's a K model for export).
In TOS, there were a number of plot holes (e.g. in "Balance of Terror", Spock hitting a button that causes a beeper to go off, alerting the Romulan ship--this ignores the fact that sound doesn't travel in a vacuum).
While the sentiment may be correct, I have to disagree with the example.
While it's true that sound doesn't travel through space, even archaic 20th Century technology like laser microphone would detect Spock's beep. While it's true that the cloaked Romulan probably wouldn't be using such an active sensor, there could be a legitimate way of detecting such vibrations passively. Indeed it might be exactly these types of vibrations that the show refers to every time Spock says something like "I'm [not] detecting any life signs, captain". So that particular example is well within the framework of the Trek canon.
It wasn't the tweet that caused the sell off, it was the poor Q1 numbers.

what business is it of ours, what they ask of people willing to work for them?
It's our business where we chose to spend our money. Some of us look beyond price and convenience, towards moral and ethical issues. It's our business because it informs our conscience and allows us to make better informed decisions about where we do business.
Starting off by fucking with the title tells me they have no interest in actually bringing the book to the screen, which is a real pisser, because it's one of my favorite books and it would make a great movie.
By that logic, I guess the publisher had no interest in bringing the story to print, seeing that Heinlein's original was called The Brass Cannon and the publisher "fucked with the title" as you so eloquently put it.
Anyone else notice that the article and blog post are from March, 2014.
