Sci-Fi

An anonymous reader writes "InformationWeek interviews John de Lancie, the actor who played the omnipotent Q, about science fiction influences on real-life technology. He says, in case of fire, the first thing he'd save is his Apple laptop. He also says the food and decor on Trek was terrible:

"I have to say, though, that I never saw them have a really good meal," he said laughing. "And I hated the colors. It all looked like a Holiday Inn. It looked like everyone was living in a hotel somewhere eating bad hotel food."
