around the traps

  • Macintosh Stories: Swedish Campground. A story claiming to explain the origin of the Mac option key symbol. Sounds about right actually. Something completely random and not especially planned, but Mac Heads will forever claim there is a deep meaning and superiority. Ultimately, it's just a great example of the Apple Way: "It makes sense because Swedish hippies know exactly what we mean!" ;)
  • Telecoms want their products to travel on a faster Internet - The Boston Globe. Apparently it's a global condition for telcos: "We can't possible be expected to compete based on our ability to find our own arse with both hands!"
  • BBC NEWS | Technology | Wikipedia survives research test: 'Only eight serious errors, such as misinterpretations of important concepts, were detected in the pairs of articles reviewed, four from each encyclopedia,' reported Nature. 'But reviewers also found many factual errors, omissions or misleading statements: 162 and 123 in Wikipedia and Britannica, respectively.'
  • NWYH Stock Image Library. Hilarious.
