I love Apple Episode 1: iPad

My love for the company known as Apple is widely known. I love to be told what is and isn't cool, how I must do something, and I especially love it when a company forces me to do things a certain way... OK maybe not.

Uncharted 2 Glitch

I was playing Uncharted 2 a while back and while I was in the Monastery level, this happened;

These things are so freaky. I was busy minding my own business and these guys threw a grenade at me. I hid behind a nearby shield and I suspect that caused the problem. I must have been forced back and instead of hitting a wall I fell over an "edge".

Shuttle Birthday

Today (depending on perspective) is the anniversary of the completion of the first Space Shuttle launch, 29 years ago. Sadly this is the last one she'll have as the last flight is planned for the September 16, this year. Aside from the massive loss of capability that the retirement will bring, this (combined with other cuts at NASA) will result in 10,000 jobs being lost. This works out as roughly of their staff. Will the grand plan of outsourcing work?

USB; Unlikely Special Bus?

I was reading news on ZDNet and I ran into this concept.

Fusion in my lifetime?

The 4th last Shuttle Mission (and the second last for Discovery) is in orbit leaving me feeling rather down about the future of the US space program. But today I read about a bright new possibility; fusion!

852759 LEGO Ruler, How does it measure up?

Believe it or not, this has been a dream part of mine for a while, and thus I bought one of these at my earliest opportunities. As it turns out that was about six months after release and by then it was half price. (It still is.) In any case, on with the review!

Ruler, top
Here it is. The red colour is a good one as it allows black printing to be easily readable.

Ed Roberts, PC Pioneer

The creator of the Altair 8800 died on this day. There's a nice post by Bill Gates and Paul Allen paying respect to his legacy. As they say, he wasn't as well known or respected as he should have been, but he was the one who proved that a home PC was possible, and I suspect his efforts gave us all the computers we (for the most part) enjoy 5 years earlier. Certainly without him there's a good chance that Microsoft would have never existed.
