'Ribbed' for your pleasure: Jony Ive unveils NAKED IPHONE

stupormundi

This means game over for those people who used to assemble frameless aquariums for decades, blissfully unaware that they were infringing on an apple innovation of the future.

The existing aquariums will probably have to be destroyed, like fake swiss watches.

stupormundi

explanation

Of course Nobel price winners eat more chocolate than other people, they are rich because of the price money they have received. Obviously they buy more chocolate, duh.

Eye opener !

"When they were asked about their feelings towards the robot, researchers found they were more positive about the robot when it was helping them."

These guys are proper geniuses. Just where do they take it from? I'd have never come up with that. Breathtaking. Far out!

Soda pop

When you're obese, diabetic, and lined up to get arteriosclerosis and alzheimers later, you have much to be sad about. Such sadness if often confused with depression.

Dinosaurs on a diet shed tonnes

stupormundi

21%

Confused by the 21% -- I understood 21% meat for 100% entire animal -- have I got it the wrong way round? When buyinig 1kg chicken, I expect to see more than 210g of meat I think, even if the head and feet are still on, giblets included. Even with an animal that's not optimized for being eaten 21% seems low.

Confused.

Sirius Cybernetics Corporation

Darn, I should've patented moving the arm in a circular fashion until the flat of the hand loudly contacts the signal-recipient's cheek to indicate that they're WAY out of line. Seems bit late now.

I stand by my opionion that people who attempt to patent gestures will be the first up against the wall when the revolution comes.

Mozilla forces Firefox 7 on memory diet

stupormundi

frikkin FF 7

I was happy when I first read FF7 would use less mem. I've got a slow netbook with a gig of RAM, FF was typically eating most of my ram.

Now that I have FF7, as soon as I have a couple tabs open (like 4 or so), the bloody thing starts to use up most of my CPU cycles for long periods of time. Irritating as hell. First I suspected bad JS on specific pages to be the cause, but after seeing it consistently no matter where I browse, I'm thinking it must be the brower itself.

And I'm not sure it really does use much less ram. It does at the moment, because I don't dare open more tabs. Aaaargh.

Masked Santas disarm Swedish royal guard

to spin that thought further: wouldn't it then be better to issue the guards toy guns, which

a) wouldn't make such an attractive target for robbery

b) wouldn't pose a danger to the public once robbed and supplied with ammo found elsewhere?

Grand jury meets to decide fate of WikiLeaks founder

worrying precedent

If the Running Dogs of Imperialism really go through with the spying charge -- charging a guy who isn't a Merkin citizen, didn't do the journalism / online publishing ("spying") within their territory, isn't himself in the US, then I suppose in the future anybody, anywhere, who has anything to say about them that they dislike will have to worry about being charged with spying against them.

2 vs 4 strokes

Surprised that I have to point out that, since these are *reciprocating* engines, the total number of strokes is not limited to 2 respectively 4, but rather large multiples of those, such as:

5645386875697852 or even 8769781934538974661478, really depending on how much fuel you can fit in the tank ;-)
