fundamentalism in any form terrifies me. maybe not as much as plagues or supervolcanoes, but close.
i’m seeing more such convergence these days, but Amanda’s right: this mashup would be compelling, like Housingmaps taken one step further
see his apology and acceptance of responsibility on page 4, in particular. good to see someone owning up to the damage he’s caused via steroids and PEDs.
“There’s nothing wrong with wanting a nicer/newer camera, just be aware that you aren’t going to turn into Ansel Adams when it arrives.” – i am living proof of this unfortunate truth
“Airport security lines can annoy passengers, but there is no evidence that they make flying any safer, U.S. researchers reported on Thursday.” – i’m not exactly shocked at this news. it’s security theater, nothing more, to assuage the easily impressed
“The IBM acquisition may be seen as a setback for MySQL, since it marks the loss of independence of another company that makes a high-performance transaction engine for MySQL’s database.” – eh, we’ll see. need to talk to IBM and MySQL about this one.
“We are all too infatuated with our deities, but Clemens is not the point here, nor is Bonds, as obnoxious and dishonest as I think he is. Tuck the kiddies in at night and tell them this: Nobody is perfect.” – Neyer’s right: best steroid piece yet
really thought the slider would have more horizontal break, on average, than it does. but apart from that, fascinating example of what baseball lovers can do with more data. he who has the most data, wins.
“Whether it’s due to the more complex manufacturing processes required for the M1330 or because Dell has been rushing systems in an effort clear out the backlog, fit and finish is decidedly weak for what is a flagship system.” – why i haven’t bought
there are a lot of economic problems with this argument, but there’s value in the example nonetheless
“As documented in The Inside Track last week, Ramirez’s game-used spandex popped up on eBay. The winning total from 40 bids? $160.” – great, my old phone, camera, and accessories together went for less than Manny’s spandex
“I have one question: Why has the display not been improved since 2000?” – same question here: not buying the “no reliable suppliers” argument. it is good of Lenovo to be so transparent, though. LED backlighting needs to be added.
why Thinkpads don’t have SSD as an option. like LEDs, strikes me as a bit of a smokescreen for the conservativism of their largest customer base, but that’s admitted in the comments. if an X were available w/ LED backlighting and an SSD, i’d buy one now.
