An excellent definition of schadenfreude, courtesy of avon_deer.

Some might recall the recent art stunt of a stuffed rat being smuggled into the Natural History museum, and placed as an "exhibit" for several hours - here's a good photo. The sunglasses are quite becoming. ^_^

rubberskunk amongst others might like DRM's Sci-Fi artwork, suggestive - sometimes explicitly - of transformations.

Okay, hell's officially frozen over. Michael Dell says "If Apple decides to open the Mac OS to others, we would be happy to offer it to our customers." Forget the processors - Dell and Jobs have been legendarily disdainful of each other's companies.

Should be interesting.. Errol Morris, who directed the Switch series of ads for Apple (and films including The Thin Blue Line, and The Fog of War), is in the process of creating another set for said fruitiers - this time, including the use of an Ames room.

It's nothing revolutionary, in the tech used, but still, this captioning system for cinemas struck me as quite neat.

I think akira114 will join with me in affirming the sentiments in this Over the Hedge.

Coming to the end of season 27 of Doctor Who, the BBC have committed to two more. Yay! And, next season's directors will include "James Hawes (The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances), Euros Lyn (End of the World/The Unquiet Dead) and classic series director Graeme Harper."

Ye gods, but the OS X devtools take up some space.. still, I did go the whole hog, installing everything possible - WebObjects, SDKs from 10.2.8 to 10.4 (PPC/Intel), documentation (865MB!), gcc 3.3 & 4.0, examples, and more. In all, about 2.6GB.. which meant some hoop-jumping, with the disk space available, but a quart does indeed fit into a pint pot. Just mop up behind the connectors at the rear periodically.
Mmm, I've been wondering as much myself - the AMD issue's a very good point. Despite almost monthly claims of considering their processors, nothing's come of it. Still, it's an interesting turnaround from the guy who once asserted, around the time Jobs returned to Apple, that he'd "sell the company and give the money back to the shareholders." Of course, one should perhaps also remember that Jobs used to tout an Intel laptop (Toshiba, I think) running OpenStep, once he returned.

Quite an amusing reverse takeover, it has to be said. For all the ill that's spoken of Gil Amelio, I can't help but feel he's come in for rather more criticism than perhaps he's due - after all, he took the step of cancelling the interminable Copland project, and setting the process going of finding an outside source for Apple's next generation OS. And, IIRC, initiated the first iMac project, though I could be mistaken on that.

I should take a look in on the MU*s again sometime.. it's been quite a long time, and I certainly used to enjoy my role.
