Area 51 No Longer (Officially) a Secret

Yes, I think over a decade ago the government acknowledged that Area 51 = Groom Lake Air Force Base.

Bradley Manning Says He's Sorry

Sabathius Apology Not Accepted (496 comments)

Sorry, man. I think you a great service to the United States and the world. One person's "Enemy of the State" is another person's Patriot. To me, he's a patriot--and I say that as a war veteran.

They should talk to Joe McMoneagle, the remote viewer who worked for the US government's psychic spying program. I believe it was he who revealed the Soviet's new Typhoon-class submarine (hello Red October!) before anyone else knew it existed. I think Joe would take his money.

Sabathius Re:But We're Living a Lot Longer (97 comments)

My take on Flouride: There is a warning on the back of toothpaste that says "If ingested, seek IMMEDIATE medical assistance." Toothpaste with out Flouride? No such warning. Also, realize that Flouride is a byproduct of Phosphate mining--essentially hazardous waste.

SCO Wants To Destroy Business Records

Sabathius Re:They're bankrupt (113 comments)

If groklaw is correct, and this is tantamount to evidence disposal, then IBM's lawyers should be all over this. I rarely side with IBM these days, but I'm really rooting for them to do the right thing (vaporize SCO).

Scientists Create New Gasoline Substitute Out of Plants

Sabathius Re:Aerial surveillance (419 comments)

Yes, but it's not just "kinda versatile". It can replace just about every petroleum product out there. Food, clothing, building materials, plastics, paper, blah, blah blah... Hemp for victory. We should be growing it here...not importing it from Canada.

Apple recording sessions with prominent musicians

Sabathius Sabathius writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Sabathius (566108) writes "Paraphrased (spin removed) from the article: Over 11 evenings, starting on February 21st, 2008, iTunes will host a series of unique recording sessions. More than 25 talented musicians — including KT Tunstall, José González, Tom Baxter, Roísín Murphy, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Spiritualized — will perform solo and collaborative sets in London's AIR Studios.

This writer finds the article very interesting — in that it may signal Apple's (iTunes's) alpha strike in undermining the recording industry super-powers."

Sabathius Sabathius writes  |  more than 7 years ago

Sabathius (566108) writes "According to Apple Recon a special event is coming up to announce (among other things) Apple's latest bid for operating system supremacy, Leopard.

If this rumor is to be believed, it would seem to confirm that Apple was waiting for Vista to be released before letting the big cat pounce."

Sabathius Sabathius writes  |  about 8 years ago

Sabathius (566108) writes "Hard on the heels of the last "Special Event", Mac Rumors reports that Apple will make another announcement on the 25th of September (just one day before Photokina, a world-wide a photography/imaging gathering in Germany). There are rumors of a new version of Aperture (based on the lens image on the invitation matching the one on the Aperture box), as well as the possibility of a Macbook Pro update."
