Microsoft Unveils First New Company Logo In 25 Years

LoP_XTC Re:Oh my God! (378 comments)

The video linked in the Technet announcement is interesting:

blue: Windows
red: Office
green: XBOX
yellow: ???

Maybe Microsoft is planning a new product line ... (if yellow was Server or dev tools there would be no reason not to include it in the video)

Hmm I would have thought ...

Blue - Windows (For BSOD)
Red - XBox (For RROD)
Yellow - ASP/.NET (Yellow screen of death)
Green - ... Okay stuck on this one.

LoP_XTC Birth of the Juicer :) (245 comments)

And so the birth of the Juicer beings :) ... they'll have to make sure they get hefty contracts as that eight-year life span (burn-out) can be a bitch and you want to make sure you party it up before you burn-out.

Now when does the Glitterboy get introduced?

LoP_XTC Re:Of course... (637 comments)

The title escapes me, but there's a great short story concerning teleportation. The problem is that a complete copy is made, and the original must be destroyed.

Wasnt this the key plot point of the book / movie "The Prestige"?

FDA To Review Inhalable Caffeine

LoP_XTC Re:Caffeine Coccaine (172 comments)

Isn't pure caffeine powder deadly? I'm guessing this product doesn't actually contain "caffeine" powder or we'll hear about how some kid killed him/herself with a pack of these canisters.

Even worse ... its odorless, tasteless, and dissolves instantly in water. Thankfully most of us from the 80's generation have built up an immunity to it.

Female Passengers Say They Were Targeted For TSA Body Scanners

LoP_XTC Re:OPT OUT (572 comments)

consider that you can get an airworthy 2-seater for about $15,000.

Considering that the Hindenburg and Titanic were both top dollar for their time and both considered well above "airworthy" and "seaworthy", this is one area I dont think I would consider going cheap on.

A Fifth of Telecommuters Work Less Than An Hour Per Day

LoP_XTC Re:In other words (323 comments)

For companies to do it right, it means there is a web cam that your manager can turn on and off at different times as well view your screen

Unless of course like me they have a spare docking station at home for their work laptops and use it when working from home. So the whole web cam point becomes pretty much invalid.

Domino's Plans Pizza On the Moon

LoP_XTC Re:Cheese = No Issue. (214 comments)

1. Get some dust from the moon
2. Filter it, sanitize it, make it not kill someone who ingests it.
3. Put a microscopic amount into some of their cheese.
4. Market this topping as "moon cheese" at a premium price.
5. Profit!

(Probably best that they don't make it obvious what the process is behind this.)

Ah so thats what Cave Johnson did wrong ... he skipped step #2 ...
