Perhaps Bill Gates figured out how to do the super rich thing right.  What a rare opportunity to actually do significant good in the world.

Horrific. These freaks claim rape is justified by their religion. I'm not convinced that they can believe such crap or even truly believe in Islam. More likely these are just depraved psychopaths that simply found a plausible outlet for their sadistic desires.

As with the horrors perpetrated by the Taliban the Islamic State's horrors will ultimately relegate them to a historical flash in the pan. But its excruciating to be a witness to such days.

Wow Apple acknowledges the existence of Android. A notable development. iOS 9 boasts an Android migration tool. I imagine Steve Jobs is rolling over in his grave.

As a lover of both Android and Apple (not to mention Linux and other tech) it's been annoying for Apple to not play nice. I get most of my media in Google Play simply because I can access stuff everywhere despite loving iTunes and iBooks too. I have got a lot of iTunes movies because previously I couldn't watch play movies in HD on my iMac (Google now says you can watch HD movies on "laptops"?)

Anyway I'm glad Apple CEO Tim Cook has proven not to be beholden to Jobs' petty grudges.

+Anthony Tanas What confusion? you're posting shit where it doesn't belong and trying to use lies to justify it. 
Then editing your post after being caught in a lie. You know what just leave i'm done with you.

So can't wait. If you haven't read the book do so!

The linked review is decent and brought up a good point I didn't really think too much about: there is no villain. Despite that it works great and I wouldn't have it any other way. There is something to be said for "amateur" or at least neophyte novelists. I remember John Grisham's or Stephen Coontz' first efforts (A Time to Kill and Flight of the Intruder) as their best works at least as far as pure funness to read.

What is up with techno zealotry?  I posted this tidbit about Android in an Android community but apparently since it mentions Apple it was a sin.  It was removed from the community as was I after an inane crusade.

I really don't care to belong to such a juvenile community in any case.  Does anybody else agree with me that the Android vs. Apple thing is retarded?

Or being a warrior for any corporate brand for that matter.  These are products people.  Not worth engaging in holy wars over!  LOL people!

I just wanted to discuss some interesting Android related news with other Android enthusiasts.  Why are people investing their self worth with such zeal into a preferred corporate brand?

Shouldn't there have been a mention of Percival Lowell in the intro?  As I understand it he predicted and searched for a planet out in Pluto's orbit.  Also I heard the name was partially in honor of him?  PLuto.  But maybe that's not true.

OK, this is probably my earliest.  The brochure for the very first commercial computer - the UNIVAC: 1948!  Designed by the ENIAC designers.

I love the claim: "Electrons work faster than ever in the newly designed UNIVAC system..."

Thanks for putting this up! The cover is apparently showing the BINAC (or what's described as the "elementary computer" in the Manual of Operations, 1954)?

Hi, just joined this community.  I'm a big fan of Computer History.  I especially love old documents - manuals, articles, books, advertisements, etc.  Here is my latest (and possibly among my earliest) finds - written in 1949!

Incidentally if someone knows where I can find even earlier stuff I'm looking for descriptions of universal machines (a.k.a. Turing machines) from before the existence of electronic digital computers. I know that Alan Turing was developing ideas for the universal machine in the 30s.  I'm interested in finding articles and/or papers from that time period when he was describing this amazingly visionary concept.

Edit: from 4 to 1 stars. STUNNINGLY DISRESPECTFUL. I've never been treated so rudely at a motel before. Isn't hospitality supposed to be central to this kind of business? If you are trying to find a place to stay please do not give your business to a place that is ungrateful for your business and that is just as happy to treat you with contempt. I'd ask you to instead consider choosing from the myriad of comparable competitors that are respectful, polite and glad to have your business. I don't want to publicly call anyone out by name but I do want to mention a couple of people that were great during our stay and who gave us our initial positive impression. John and Paul are both a credit to the Unicorn and and couldn't be friendlier. If the owner or manager reads this and would like to know the details of our mistreatment after being a guest for three months I'd be happy to share (we left a few days after the incident). Contact me on Google+ or however you can. I initially intended to get in touch with management right away but then it occurred to me that if these people had the gall to be so boldly rude then its likely that management doesn't care. Original review: Four stars. This place is for weekly stays on a budget. It's extremely basic but it is clean and there is good wi-fi. I wouldn't recommend it for families but for adults or couples needing an extended stay on a budget it might be a good choice.

For what it is its very good. I was arguing with my gf that it should be four stars in the context of what it is (a 24 hour diner), not in the context of fine dining restaurants. She suggested three stars. Food is good. Their thick cut bacon is great (even as i prefer thin bacons). Yummy: Eggs Benedict, BLT, various pies, beer battered fries, Belgian waffle, et. al. Avoid the blueberries on the pancakes. Staff is friendly yet savvy at keeping the local meth heads at bay at 3 a.m. who are themselves generally more pitiful then menacing. They are at worst annoying once they learn you'll help them out with a few bucks or a smoke. If you want to mitigate this problem then support treatment and access to mental healthcare (which works) over law enforcement (which not only fails but is counterproductive as it permanently gimps the socioeconomic prospects of these people). But I digress.
