Google boss tracks Carly, Arianna, all three Dixie Chicks

Tony Robbins?

Really? Why?

Does Eric spend his mornings jogging and chanting "Every day, in every way, I'm getting better and better!"?

Edward Woodward dies at 79

Aaron Gilliland

Obligatory Noel Coward reference:

Apple tablet will 'redefine print,' says rumor mill

Aaron Gilliland

Redefine, eh?

So print's current definition is "something written on paper."

The new definition will be "something written on paper, as opposed to something you will see on an electronic display."

Thanks for clearing that up!

Street View applies extra blur to Swiss

Aaron Gilliland


Instead of blurring, stamp an image of Heidi onto all the faces and plates.

Then we can all be reminded of her courage and fortitude.

And secret bank accounts.

Microsoft apologizes for digital head transplant

Isn't it obvious?

Poland is in The Matrix. One of the Agents is taking over the body of the black gentleman, but he's only 25% complete.

Re; Not due to air pressure

I'm sorry, did you just say that the Mythbusters disproved something? Yes, of course, what with their rigorous, dispassionate scientific investigation that had nothing at all to do with television sensationalism.

I'm sure they fired rifle bullets into the fake tits and replayed it in slow motion, or something. I'll bet they even found an excuse to visit the aircraft boneyard.

Zero-G vanishing bone issue solved, says prof

Aaron Gilliland

Old news

The report may be new, but the concept has been applied all over the place.

The problem isn't technical. The problem is compliance. The solutions are tedious and uncomfortable to use.

Re: Anton Chigurh's "sniper rifle"

Uh, pretty sure it was a shotgun.
