Isaac Newton's Notes Digitized

neko the frog Re:Ah, the golden age... (92 comments)

Eh, seeing how Newton was involved in one of the most famous IP-theft disputes in history this is more than a bit ironic.

Apple: You Must Be 17+ To Use Opera

neko the frog Re:Then Safari should have the same warning! (315 comments)

There's an option in the parental controls to disable/password-protect Safari/Youtube etc altogether. With Opera/Atomic/iCab/etc you get a single dialog that you snicker at while tapping "ok," after which there's no restrictions. So in that sense, Apple locks their own apps down tighter than Opera.

This is a pretty silly story.

Yoctonewton Detector Smashes Force Sensing Record

neko the frog Should stem from 10^27 (214 comments)

As many of us know there is a movement to make "hella-" the SI unit for 10^27.

Following convention, 10^-27 should therefore be "hello-"

Which works perfectly, since that makes 10^-27 kitties...

Amazon Releases iPhone Kindle Software

neko the frog Re:Free books? (232 comments)

No, it doesn't. Nor does Stanza support Kindle books. Easy fix: have two apps.

At any rate, it's decent enough for a first release, but a better way of buying on the fly than Mobile Safari would be nice. I'd also like an interface closer to Stanza's, with touch-to-scroll (instead of swiping), a sans-serif font and a white-on-black display option for night reading. I'd imagine these will probably make it in over time.

California Can't Perform Pay Cut Because of COBOL

neko the frog Re:Not as lame as people are thinking... (1139 comments)

On top of this, state workers are slated to get their back pay at the end of it all, in full. That may not be an entirely trivial change.
