Although I don’t presently own an Android phone, I’m really exited about Google’s version of Gnu/Linux that operates on “their” cell phones. I look forward to owning one in the near future. There’s a lot of confusion about Andriod. I know it’s a systems run on the Linux kernel proper. That is, apparently Google replaced the
The following were posters put out by the American government to dissuade WWII soldiers from participating in “risky behaviour” while on duty overseas. We’re supposed to assume that the targeted practice is with prostitutes, but I don’t see it.

I don’t know of anyone that makes due without Flash these days. It’s become so pervasive, it’s difficult to imagine one without it on today’s Internet. HTML5 is supposed to change this, what with Jobs formally announcing this in his famous letter regarding Adobe’s technology. While I see the end of any proprietary technology, such as
The 9/11 footage always looked fishy to me from the start … a missing plane after the pentagon was attacked (it supposedly vaporized entirely), explosions out of sync with the planes hitting the towers (apparently various bombs blasts), and the apparent molten metal pouring out the walls suggest so. Still, it’s hard to believe the
