"Hot Jupiter planet systems aren't harbouring any Earthlike worlds because they're too busy systematically decimating any planets that pop up"
What, you mean these so-called Hot Jupiters are removing 1/10th of every earth-like planet they encounter?
How to they do that?
Why don't we just fix Venus?
Drop a few trillion sulphuric-acid eating, oxygen-excreting bacteria and sit back and watch?
A4 versus Letter
4:3 ratio sucks because it conforms less well to the A4 paper size ratio. 16:10 widescreen, while not perfect, is a *much* better ratio match to A4. And much more of the world uses metric paper sizes.
All Hail the Return of the Mainframe!
Except now it'll be Apple's and Microsoft's mainframe instead of IBM's.
Oh, and don't forget you can't store your own CD/DVD rips on their DASD, errrrm, iCloudy-thingy.
Bollocks to that.
"MPAA spokesperson Elizabeth Kaltman told The Reg in an email: "The Librarian's decision unnecessarily blurs the bright line established in the DMCA against circumvention of technical protection measures and undermines the DMCA, which has fostered greater access to more works by more people than at any time in our history.""
Hah,,,the MPAA's history maybe...
My iPod 64GB already has a 5MP camera in it...just no lens. It tells me so every time I plug it into my laptop.
We've fallen a long way since Maj. Tony Nelsen
Can you imagine using NASA as the subject of a sitcom today?
Language support sucks
Input: English (U.S), French (France), German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazil)
Display: English (U.S), French (France), German, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazil), Korean, Japanese, Russian,
The lack of cyrillic input is incredible and without Ukrainian it's useless to me.
Bah, humbug Google...
I've stuck with T-Mobile for as long as I've had a mobile because they have the cheapest call rates to Canada from the UK by far...50%...this is gonna screw me over.
Hurricanes are a means of tropical heat dissipation and moisture transfer to higher, colder latitudes...unless I'm way off base here...what happens to the world's weather if we stop this?!
Jean Carol Duley
Glenn Greenwald, who has blogged extensively on this topic over at Salon.com notes that:
"So much of the public reporting about Ivins has been devoted to depicting him as a highly unstable psychotic who had been issuing extremely violent threats and who had a violent past. But that depiction has been based almost exclusively on the uncorroborated claims of Jean Carol Duley, a social worker (not a psychiatrist or psychologist) who, as recently as last year, was apparently still in college at Hood College in Frederick, Maryland."
He also details a lengthy rap sheet on her which would appear to discredit her reputability.
8848 metres = 29 029 feet
Last time I checked, most modern airliners cruise at 38,000 feet and are equipped with phones.
