What the hell's happened to Apple?

The trouble with gurus who choose their successors is that they invariably choose someone comparitively cr*p to take over, because of their essential failing: Narcissism. Gurus don't want to be outshone, even in death. Somethings rotten at Apple, unless they reanimate the body of Jobs which they have pickled in a secret chamber deep beneath the middle of the Apple saucer, I fear they are doomed to perpetual ineptitude or a terminal case of Microsoft.

If you're looking for bad news about Microsoft, top tip: look away now

He's got you all worked out

Using leverage to deliver infinite mediocrity.

That's no moon... er, that's an asteroid. And it'll be your next and final home, spacefarer

It's already passed us by

Oumuamua - they all died off after being knocked off course by a passing brown dwarf, to drift by, unresponsive to a civillisation third rock from an alien sun.

James Webb Space Telescope + luck = long distance astrofun

RIP Facesat

Musk justified his existence when he blew up Zuckerberg's space-borne spying device.

Avoid using Musk!

It'll die on the launchpad...

Incredible Euro space agency data leak... just as planned: 1.7bn stars in our galaxy mapped

Re: Real science

"Real science == measure stuff"

Measuring stuff is only one type of proof and there are a great many types of proof in maths.

When tyrants pull on their jackboots to stamp out free speech online, they reach for... er, a Canadian software biz?

Some legit torrent sites...

... are already blocked in the UK... and they're only using torrents to avoid hosting fees.

Hotel, motel, Holiday Inn? Doesn't matter – they may need to update their room key software

Re: Let's face it, all locks are cr*p

Abloy and Kaba are the same thing. The Lockpicking Lawyer has picked a lot of Kabas.

fines are simply tokens

...fines are never going to be high enough to be any real liability and until that changes...
