iTunes, Tiger, and irrational ire: The difference between updates and upgrades (TUAW.com)

May 21st 2011 1:00PM What on earth are you talking about?

Presumably by "strange ideas" you mean "has views that I [Chris Stevens] disagree with".

Oh, Chris Stevens. We're not worthy. Why aren't you running the universe? Is there some sort of building where we can worship you?

Apple plans to make Thunderbolt, USB ports thinner, more durable (TUAW.com)

May 5th 2011 1:42PM I'd be quite happy with a USB port that makes it obvious which way up the connector goes in. If I had a dollar for every time I'd tried to connect something with the plug the wrong way up, I'd be a rich man.

Meet the 203-foot truck on its way to save Fukushima's No. 4 reactor (Autoblog)

Mar 25th 2011 2:27PM Godspeed, little truck! I wonder if it'll be worth $1M once it's been irradiated?

A very nice gesture on Sany's part, it must be said.

Movie Review: Asif Kapadia's Senna (Autoblog)

Mar 22nd 2011 2:32PM 1. The plural of "chassis" is chassis, not chassis'. Since when have apostrophes been used to indicate plurality?

Mar 22nd 2011 2:25PM gerrrg: no, it's not a British thing. "Laid off" is the correct British usage as well.

Video: Second Fast Five trailer hits the web (Autoblog)

Mar 9th 2011 2:00PM Well, Gal Gadot is in this one too (as Diesel's love interest), so I'll be watching.

Lion will drop support for earliest Intel Macs (TUAW.com)

Feb 25th 2011 1:47PM @MD: the ZDnet link says that it's only the very first generation of Intel Macs that won't be officially supported - those without Core 2 Duo chips. The Woodcrest in the first generation (August 2006) Mac Pros are Core 2 Duo chips, so 1,1 Mac Pros should be fine. I'm certainly hoping so, as I can't afford to replace my trusty 1,1 just yet!

Dodge brand to ditch cross-hair grille? (Autoblog)

Feb 15th 2011 1:25PM "seperate"?

First Drive: 2012 McLaren MP4-12C (Autoblog)

Feb 14th 2011 1:40PM "Sir" Ron Dennis? Ron Dennis hasn't been knighted. He's plain old Ron Dennis.

Kia renders next-gen Rio, confirms Geneva debut (Autoblog)

Jan 13th 2011 1:36PM Looks like a Scirocco (the new one).
