"There is no demand for Mobile printing."
-Actual quote from unnamed marketing droid shooting down development of proposal for unified driverless mobile printing solution years before Google cloud print.

Seriously though, zero ink paper filled with color crystals. Sounds nifty.

Because it's perfectly sane and logical for fonts to be turing-complete and have low-level system access.  Duh.

Gyah!!
 
Eunice aphroditois (colloquially known as the Bobbit(t) worm), is an aquatic predatory polychaete worm dwelling at the ocean floor.

This organism buries its long body into an ocean bed composed of gravel, mud, or corals, where it waits patiently for a stimulus to one of its five antennae, attacking when it senses prey.

Armed with sharp teeth, it is known to attack with such speeds, its prey is sometimes sliced in half.

You too can miss the point entirely.
1) Start with ridiculous proposition.
2) Proceed to elaborate the ridiculousness of your strawman argument.
3) Publish conclusion.

Take care to completely ignore the cost savings inherent in leveraging the previously proprietary tools and systems now completely replaced by Open Source Software underlying every major technology based business and company still operating today.

Engineers enjoy not having to reinvent the wheel. We enjoy using tried and tested tools rather than buying or building our own for every single task. Management also has finally come around to the idea. It takes a far less manpower. Now if we could just get the legal teams to get onboard....

I hesitate to even include the link, but sometimes you have no choice but to point out and expose the laziness in the media by actually reading it.

Most accurate  line "It's a production model, not a business model."
“It’s a production model, not a business model,” says one executive. And a tough one too. The latest case in point is a move by Big Switch Networks to change the way it hopes to demolish Cisco.

While playing Arkham games we like to say that as Batman we "permanently incapacitate"
Batman is a murderer. I’ve seen him kill with my own two eyes. It’s 1940, and he’s piloting a propeller plane of his own design, painted black with its wings scalloped like those of his namesake, on which is mounted a powerful machine gun. Swooping down toward a truck, he...

Well, you have to admit, the old name had a fair amount of quite unfair historical baggage associated with it, after all.

The last words of the trailer kills me.  "I don't want to die in Canada."
