I sure will miss Apple. The company famous for plagiarizing the Xerox PARC GUI. They gave the least bang for my buck (as a former mac fan) and continue to improve in that department.

Like Aliens (ty JC) you be strapped in via full body harness. Some smart alec will say, "Express elevator to hell, going down." Then, wooosh! (sry I just put spittle on my screen). Someone will puke and promptly discover the hazards of puking in zero G. Something akin to the big bang. Nonetheless the twisting descent will probably be the funnest part, much like you would find on a rollercoaster. Oh wait I can have that thrill for $100.
I'd call Moore's law a loophole. If you shove enough figures into your equation you could get it to prove anything, within reason. If we had people like this in Ancient Greece defining the limits of art and science we would 'still' be in the dark ages. An upper and lower limit is determined by physicists not mathematheorists.
If you are caught in a thunderstorm, try to take refuge indoors. Stay away metal pipes and electrical outlets.
If you are caught outside, duck and cover. Waiting till a bolt strikes... then run... then duck again. Wait. Try to find some low ground to head to. Then run again.
N.B. If you feel static electricity building up near you DUCK immediately.
Here's a quickie on Australia:
* The ACT is full of pollies and public servants.
* The harbour bridge (in Sydney NSW) is one of the worlds widest bridges.
* Melbourne has trams.
* Tasmania is bloody cold.
Home to worlds most deadly snake:
Eastern Taipan (snake): Can kill you in 30 milliseconds. Will bite you 9 to 20 times. Mostly in the balls.
The trolls are actually 'sharks' ready to pounce at the first sniff of blood. Google needs to wait till it is big enough to shake off the pit bulls like M$ does. Meanwhile the advertisers are not interested in the 'early bird' worm. Did I make too many fauna references? Ooh look a penguin.
loss is immaterial to Google. I don't think money-grubbing M$ could stomach a business model like that.
Google knows the way to the future. I would have invested the money in old-fashioned things like real-estate and widget factories. No! 6 Billion people having their own TV channel is what makes money.
I was a complete Netscape fanboi. I didn't need a college degree to ask the computer store guy about internet software. Not that it wasn't already explained in various computer mags.
I can believe people are incredibly lazy. But I cannot believe they are too stupid to acquire a browser as well as the OS.
"Pah, he's using them fancy words agin."
