Does anybody understand why #parallels  charges USD 75 to buy their update when located in Switzerland? It's 49.90 when located in USA. They look up your IP address. They don't even support the Swiss German keyboard layout properly! There's no added value for the surplus price. Hint: Tor or public proxies work nicely to get around this annoyance.

seriously #gmail, what is it with the language setting!? Rumantsch, French, why can't it just stay English (or German, if you MUST change it) Whatever smart feature you think you have, please get rid of it! It simply does not work!

Would anybody have any idea why Google Mail keeps switching the GUI to French for me? It's really really annoying. :(

Now this sounds interesting! 

It takes advantage of a quirk in the cosmological code that allows for the expansion and contraction of space-time, and could allow for hyper-fast travel between interstellar destinations. Essentially, the empty space behind a starship would be made to expand rapidly, pushing the craft in a forward direction — passengers would perceive it as movement despite the complete lack of acceleration.

A few months ago, physicist Harold White stunned the aeronautics world when he announced that he and his team at NASA had begun work on the development of a faster-than-light warp drive. His proposed design, an ingenious re-imagining of an Alcubierre Drive, may eventually result in an engine that can transport a spacecraft to the nearest star in a matter of weeks — and all without violating Einstein's law of relativity. We contacted White at NASA...
