Book Recommendations For Maths To Astrophysics?

massivefoot Re:Feynman Lectures (276 comments)

Yup, it is. The only bachelor degrees Cambridge award are BAs, and the degree certificate doesn't even state the subject or class, that's all in some other document called a results transcript.

Anywhere else would have done the sensible thing and changed the title of all the science degrees, but here the attitude seems to be "well no one's complained too much in the last 800 years..."

Steve Ballmer Pelted with Eggs

massivefoot massivefoot writes  |  more than 6 years ago

massivefoot (922746) writes "Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was heckled and had eggs thrown at him during a lecture to university students at the Corvinus University in Budapest.

The student stands up accuses Microsoft of stealing a large amount of money (the audio is unclear on the actual amount, it could be 25 million Forint) from Hungary, before being led away, wearing a shirt with "Microsoft = Corruption" written on the back.

None of the eggs actually hit Ballmer, as he took cover behind a desk. Asked by another student whether this was the first time that he'd had an egg thrown at him, Ballmer replied "Yes, it's the first time I've had an egg thrown at me, ah, since 1966.""

massivefoot (922746) writes "Bloggers "crossed the line" when they posted a software key that could break the encryption on some HD-DVDs, the AACS copy protection body has said. An AACS executive said it was looking at "legal and technical tools" to confront those who published the key."

massivefoot writes "Warner Music has rejected the suggestion from Steve Jobs that DRM should be removed from music downloads. In an open letter this week, the Apple boss had said that removing such software would also allow greater usability for customers, as any online music store would be able to sell songs that would work on all players. "This is clearly the best alternative for consumers, and Apple would embrace it in a heartbeat." said Mr Jobs. Warner Music, the world's fourth largest record company, seems far from convinced."
