Trust us, as soon as we have a Mac version ready, it will be up and available on our site."
i'm in favor. like incandescent lightbulbs, wall-warts shouldn't be banned, but we can gain efficiency by replacing a lot of them
since money is getting tight, we may be seeing a lot more collections related technologies
low power nonvolatile replacement for DRAM & flash memory, currently in R&D
although a satire, this is exactly what happens when obscure older technology is compared to technology commonly in use. let's not disparage older tech! it still has its applications :)
a "laser harp"... it's neater than i expected!
i didn't realize we still have some privacy rights left... this seems to be a pivotal case

Hey, it's Windell -- welcome to S.U.! Readers take note: Check out Windell's "Pages I Like", 'cuz he includes links to his own Brilliant mad science projects, and doesn't always blog them. :)
Bezos compares the current state of the Internet to the gold rush and the early electric industry. He's a good speaker... I like that guy. :)
Great-looking shoes with a built-in impact absorbing spring for pain relief. Haven't tried them myself, but they're *super* cool & sexy! Many thanks to ar0cketman for the find.
