It's 50 years to the day since Apollo 10 blasted off: America's lunar landing 'dress rehearsal'

That's a very incorrect characterization of the Saturn V. The "tanks" as you call them were difficult engineering. The second stage had some whacky stuff with the common bulkhead between the liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen sections. Flight control surfaces, flight control computing, etc. were all quite necessary. It wasn't a model rocket!

Apple vanishes Java from Mac OS X Lion

WTF?

You downloaded the version you needed for Mac OS X?

How, pray tell, did you download the latest version of Java for Mac OS X from Sun/Oracle? The only source for Java on the Mac was (and remains until the OpenJDK port is complete) Apple.

You're talking through your hat.
