    I downloaded the demo, but am yet to play it. Power-gliding like the Vipers on the show is tempting. Im more interested in the StarFox mod thats also being developed for Freespace 2.

    If The Force is part of all living things in the SW galaxy, shouldn't "The Force" box contain all the figures in the SW galaxy ... ?

    A lot of this stuff was supposed to go into windows Vista (and it might have been a bit more popular if it had) but didn't quite make it. So it looks like they've found a new home for it all.

    Nothing funny about this -- it's a technology demonstration that has to be seen to be believed...

    Apparently The Oxford English Dictionary has an entry for "McJob" that defines it as "a low-paying job that requires little skill and provides little opportunity for advancement."

    And now it seems that McDonald's is behind a petition to get the OED definition changed to "a job that is stimulating, rewarding ... and offers skills that last a lifetime."

    Those crazy folks at Apple are trying to get another piece of your windows computer: they're releasing the Apple Safari web browser for windows xp & vista.

    http://www.apple.com/au/safari/



    I've tried it. It's neat, it's fast, but it's like IE: too barebones. It doesn't even have (or allow expansion to include) basic ad-blocking, etc. So I won't be ditching Firefox any time soon. But if they did ...
