Once open a time, a company which had a lot of people using his digital media player, pushed people to use his browser through an 'almost automatic' software update. People complained about this behaviour, others defend it, and there was what someone called a nano-scandal, and a lot of people installed the new browser.
And then there were the bad guys (cause a tale has always bad guys), who found a way to break into someone's computer through a bug in the referenced browser. So, the company was/his installing a lock into a lot of personal computers, and someone has just found the master key.
I'm pretty amazed with the following video. It's a robot developed by Boston Dynamics, with DARPA sponsorship (yep, the same organization who financed the development of the Internet). Watch it and pay special attention to the robot's reaction around 0:35 of the video.
If you upgraded your Safari to the new 3.1 version, use Gmail, and now your Shift or Tab keys are making your cursor jumping back to the To: field, here is the solution: change your default language to English (US); click on "Newer version" on the top right of the screen - only English (US) version has this option enabled; you are done, Gmail should be working perfectly now.
I guess people at Cupertino doesn't use Gmail...
Update: the same problem happens with Gmail for Google Apps, and I don't know how to solve it. Need a hand.
Dear Steve, you should sell the iPhones as you sell your computers: like an open plataform where anyone can install whatever application they want, with full responsability and without your paternal control.
This way, you will sell millions of iPhones worldwide, and will be doing what you do best: selling state-of-the-art hardware running a gorgeous, user friendly operating system.
Trying to gain from the mobile operators is buying a war you don't want (or need) to. Trying to gain from the developers community by restricting the free flow of creativity is wrong, and against the values of the Apple brand.
Another great Ted talk, this time from neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor which had a great opportunity for a brain scientist:
One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened -- as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding -- she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another
It's a very strong, emotional story, explaining the differences between our right and left brain hemispheres, told in the first person.
