Let it go, Steve: Ballmer bans iPads from his LA Clippers b-ball team

I always found Ballmer to be a bit of an asshat, but after this, now I find him to be A LOT of an asshat.

He may own the team, but that doesn't give him the right to tell people which brands they personally use.

Shame list

We need a Shame List. SpamHaus should post the retailers who are breaking the rules whom they've caught with their trap addresses.

Apple fanbois SCREAM as update BRICKS their Macbook Airs

Why is it every time there's some article about Apple screwing something up, you relate all Apple users to "Fanbois".

Just because you own a Mac doesn't make you one of those arrogant in-your-face morons.

New account of Flight 447 disaster published

Scary fail for France's licensing standards?

Active stall recovery, much like with you, was done frequently and very early on when I was training for my license. In Canada where I'm from, so are recovering from spiral dives. Its been a while since flight school however I seem to recall my instructor telling me that the actively (meaning really doing it while flying a real airplane) recovering from stalls and spiral dives is NOT manditory in every country. Some countries, such as the US, just cover it in the classroom.

So either this Bonin guy (whom in my opinion single-handedly crashed that aircraft and killed all those people) was a complete moron who somehow ended up as a copilot on a commercial aircraft, or France's pilot training standards are severly lacking.
