Beaver Dam Visible From Space

azuravian Re:850 meters??? (286 comments)

Yes, but the description is measuring width, not length. In this case, the 3 gorges is only about 115 meters, vs 221 meters for the Hoover. The description is still wrong though, the Zhiguli Dam in Russia is about 750 meters wide and there may be others that are wider (seeing as the Zhiguli was completed in the 50s).

Apple does not force iPhone and iPod updates.

As far as I know no one "forces" them. Everything released up to the point the firmware update is released will still work. But with Apple, there are apps that require the latest updates, thereby "forcing" you to update if you want to use those apps.

Microsoft Feared Mac Vs. Vista In '05

azuravian Re:What Microsoft should really have considered (652 comments)

Only because they had no plural form due to the fact that they did not understand viruses. We now understand that viruses are indeed countable and many medical texts use both viruses and virii for the plural.
