Does anyone remember the name of the African American kid that Elroy played with?

According to rule 34, they are the most important family in the history of porn

My grandmother took me to see the movie when I was a kid.

I was starting to get older, but it was just to two of us and we went to Furr's for lunch.

I have nothing but good memories of the jetsons.

If they're in space, how can they be African or American?

There was no African American kid that Elroy played with.

Not that it makes it any better, but if there had been any black characters on the Jetsons they would likely have been the terrible cultural stereotypes of the time. It's probably better not to have racially insensitive depictions tarnish a show many (not myself) enjoyed. It's better to be criticized for never depicting other (earth) races than depicting them offensively.

I guess "patent lawsuit from Apple" has become one of those memes that get you an instant greenlight no matter how senseless and moronic the headline is.

No, it was just showing that the future was looking pretty bright.

... I guess the author never heard of a little show called 'Star Trek'?

As silent-running electric vehicles are adopted more widely, the necessity of a standard warning noise to protect the visually-impaired and other pedestrians will become more apparent to authorities. The standard noise should be high-pitched for maximum efficiency- but with enough variation in pitch to allow for the source of the noise to be determined - distinctive, and suitably intrusive - but not excessively so.

What I'm suggesting is that in the future all cars actually will make the Jetsons noise.

Is my memory wrong, or did they change the noise in the movie to the standard spaceship "whoosh" like in Star Wars?

I don't know but here's Tim Cook on Windows 8
Anyone wondering what Apple CEO Tim Cook thinks of Microsoft's new Surface tablet didn't have to wait long to get an answer. Cook offered a fairly blunt assessment of the device on the company's quarterly earnings call today, saying that while he hasn't personally played with one, "we're reading that it's a fairly compromised, confusing product." He went on to say that "I think one of the things you do with a product is make hard trade-offs. The user experience on the iPad is absolutely incredible," adding, "I suppose you could design a car that flies and floats, but I don't think it would do all of those things very well. When people look at the iPad versus competitive offerings, I think they'll continue to want an iPad."

Reminds me of when the interwebs was trying to kill of DivX. The Circuit city kind.
