Mugato: Hmm. You're right about the date, but the Cylon you pictured is clearly from the original series.


No, the original picture was a Cylon Centurion Model 0005, from the original Cylon Wars. They were shown in the new BSG miniseries as a reference to the old series. Later in the new BSG series we saw several appearances of the "old style" Cylons, as flashbacks in the TV Movie "Razor", and in the finale of the new BSG, at the battle on the Cylon's colony world, we saw a number of them, including the ones that were fighting on Galactica's side.

Being a reporter or an analyst for Apple products is the easiest job on the planet. Just be overtly bombastic and proclaim everything to be the best ever.
Recycle for the next launch.

It's just lazyspeak nowadays. Every Apple launch is the same "biggest launch ever" and "the most advanced iPhone ever", no shiat sherlock.

That's why I hate the Apple culture. They love making the obvious extraordinaire.

rumpelstiltskin: I like the recipe analogy. What it makes me wonder is, I read somewhere that the reason recipes aren't patented is that an expert in the field knows that if you make something out of strawberries, it's going to end up tasting something like strawberries, and there's nothing really non-obvious to an expert about pretty much any recipe. So why wouldn't that same idea apply to things like business process patents, and design patents, and software patents?


Because then the legal firms that rigged the patent game to begin with would lose millions of dollars in billable hours every year?

Just a guess.

But then Xerox made a prototype,
Steve Jobs came on the scene,
read "Of Mice and Menus," Windows, Icons
a trash, and a bitmap screen.

Well Stevie said to Xerox,
"Boys, turn your heads and cough."
And when no-one was looking,
he ripped their interfaces off.

Stole every feature that he had seen,
put it in a cute box with a tiny little screen,
Mac OS 1 ran that machine,
only cost five thousand bucks.
