Which in turn get popularized as "the (new) missing link".
Yes the fossil record is not complete (that would require a unbroken chain from FossilA to FossilZ - an by its nature fossilised stuff is rare (enough) to not be complealty avaliable).
# I'm no expert - and the missing link stuff via media is getting to me - so here is my layman clarification. Also the Letters A-Z have only illustrative purposes here. #

Lo-Fi Phones and the Future
the only voip solution that withstood long (more than 8 h) sessions and has a very good audio quality over that time in my experience is the mumble project
Town Gets Patent On Being the Center of Europe
Though I'm from Austria, I am in now way whatsoever involved with patents,
I tried to look "AM 7738/2003" up @ patent search engine, without luck.
