Apple issues moral regulations apps dev guide

3rd party browser are fine and good.

I tried Opera on iPhone. I found it slower and no better than Safari. I tried Atomic Web browser, which I assume uses WebKit and built in JavaScript engine. It is way better than Safari on iPhone. The interface is much nicer for an experienced user than Safari. So, I am not sure what the issue is saying 3rd party browsers are not allowed. Use WebKit you get good rendering reasonably fast; same with built in JavaScript. Spend your time making a better interface and you win like Atomic. I suppose the rules still prevent a dev from implementing Flash, but apparently even Adobe is taking years to do that well; so no loss there.

PARIS threatened by the bends

Wet after glued to both sides.

I've made plenty of balsa/tissue planes. And once even made the mistake of covering a single side before shrinking the tissue; now you know the results too. But I agree with other posters here. You glue (with dope - on the balsa and then through the tissue ) the tissue dry to one side of the wing, and only glue the leading edge, trailing edge, and outermost ribs. You trim that paper with fine sand paper. Fix paper to the other side the same way, and trim. Now you have the wing fully covered but only fixed with dope around the circumference of the wing. Now, you steal your mom's best perfume sprayer empty and fill with water. Very lightly spray the tissue uniformly so that it shrinks uniformly and does not warp your structure. You may need to do this three to six times being patient to let it dry between spraying. Hang dry using a thread. The tissue will now be taught uniformly and the structure should be fine. At that point further dope through the tissue at the ribs to fix the tissue to the ribs. After that you can choose a 50/50 dope/thinner spray - again in mom's perfume bottle - to coat the whole wing. But I never did as it will add too much weight. Good luck.

Yes

The museum of my top shelf - I'm keeping my original iPhone for backup. For the $25 I might get, I'd rather keep it as a backup for me or the kids.

Wake me when there is an actual threat

McAfee Anti-Virus makes my work computer run like a narcoleptic terrier with amnesia. I'd like to keep my phone usable thanks.

The Trend Micro SmartSurf for iPhone is not a browser add-on, its a replacement browser app. No thanks!

Cal Tech, Berkeley and UCSB working on 'iPhoD'

Please - it's Caltech.

Cal is used to refer to the University of California system of schools; e.g. Cal Berkley. There is no Cal Pasadena. And, there is only one Caltech. See http://www.caltech.edu/# .

Fire for Ricketts Hovse.

10 Years - no one told me when to run...

God help me if it has been 10 years since the last change, clear still I have no prospects if I have time to read this rag.

New Van Gogh pic discovered using German atom-smasher

@Mike Richards

I've not done it myself, but some of my Caltech physicist friends have stuck their heads in the high power magnets of a synchrotron. A static magnetic field would have no effect, provided you have no iron fillings. However, by turning ones head, the field is no longer static as far as the brain is concerned and generates small currents directly inside. Colors and tastes were reported.

Steve Fossett may be alive, investigator claims

Re the six other planes

As I recall one was from the '50s and others had not been reported missing. Nevada is a big empty desert and one is not actually required to file a flight plan. So, unless one of the planes that they found had been searched for previously, it is really not indicative of incompetence.

XCOR CEO Jeff Greason

I had the great pleasure of attending Caltech with Jeff. He was one of the most motivated and smartest student in our class. If he thinks this can be done, I have no doubt he can get it done.

Just hope he has an old school friends discount!
