Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard - Finder

Nick

30 years ago...

...would be 1977, so give Mr. Basset a break: For a good portion of his 12 years of Mac experience, there were, er... no macs.

Fancy an invisible dog that dances on stilts?

They demonstrate their invisibility technique on their page.

It's called "bandwidth exceeded."

Robot sailboats to race across Atlantic

Nick

sounds like a better idea than

Hyperion--Jim Clark's Sun multi-workstation-controlled boat, which was about the size of Wales. This one is sun-POWERED requires less of everything, including ego.

Nick

Why not their own terrorist bombing?

Gosh, I wonder why the plate doesn't feature Oklahoma City's own terrorist bombing:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oklahoma_City_bombing

Oh. Those terrorists were caucasian, US citizens.

That's all right then.

Whistling dolphins wired for sound

Nick

Relevance?

And what, pray tell, is the connection of this story to The Register's journalistic mission?

Not one single mention of the iPhone, Steve Jobs, Fanbois, stunning talented over-jubbed papparazi fodder, BOFH, ROTF, nor s*x with oth*r sp*cies, unless.... Ah "whistling" = "blowing."

You almost had me there.

re @ Caitlin

Stewart Knight did not say HE wouldn't stand up in court. He said IT wouldn't stand up in court.

And to Steve Sutton: There is your IT erection--er connection.

Coat on and out the door.

In the US, at least on census forms, Arab and middle eastern folks are Caucasians--for all the good it does them.

Hot-air powered railway to harvest energy from cars

Nick

Let's hope so

"Drivers, noticing the new light-rail line, might start leaving their cars at home and so rob the new infrastructure of power"

Yes, please. After all, mass transit is easier on the environment than individual autos--even if connected to the grid.
