'As you might imagine, we are upset at Windows for not being more hardy against such viruses, and even more upset with ourselves for not catching it,' Apple said on its web site.You what? Even when Apple is 100% in the wrong, they can't resist a jab at Windows? Man, they need to get over themselves.

- Eric's Archived Thoughts: High-Profile Cooking:
See, you?re not allowed to do any work on the Sabbath, which includes things like turning lights on and off. Ovens fall under that restriction as well, which makes cooking dinner a bit tough. However?and here?s the funky part?you get off the hook if you don?t directly cause the work to occur. If the work happens indirectly, then you?re okay. So when the oven is in Sabbath mode, you input the temperature and cook time you want. Then you press start, and for a random amount of time that ranges from 30 seconds to a minute, nothing happens. Then the oven kicks on. Ta-daaa! Indirect action!(See also: Wired 12.11: The Geek Guide to Kosher Machines). On the one hand this is one of those reasons-why-I-just-don't-get-religion things, on the other you have got to admire the hack. Seriously though... no light switches? I just don't get religion.
