Scientists Race To Develop Livestock That Can Survive Climate Change

aduchate Screw the feedback loop (291 comments)

So the basic idea is : Cows produce methane that participates to the global warming. But because cows might not survive the climate change, we are going to create super-cows than are immune to this self-regulating mechanism instead of let's say switch to bugs.

Really sounds like a great idea.

I imagine that when we have really screwd the climate for us, we will have to come up with genetically engineered human beings that will drive heavily modified cars that are working OK when it's 60C.

Apple Unveils New Macbook

aduchate Re:Any colour you like (986 comments)

Because in this case it would compete too directly with the macbook pro line. Plus, Apple always seems to speculate on the irrationnal need some people have to spend the extra money for the useless feature that makes it cool. Black in this case. I have strictly no problem with Apple trying to make extra money with the very psychological exclusive black "high" end macbook as long as the low end is feature full (read dual core instead of single core, iSight included,...).
