Yesterday a great musician, rapper, activist and director, Adam "MCA" Yauch, founding member of the Beastie Boys and also of the Milarepa Foundation passed away in his native New York City after a years long battle with a rare form of cancer. A man under 50 years of age. All too young to go!
plink, nix praise or blame!
Many Papers had it today. Jack Tramiel died at age 83. We always had him in our hero list for the fact that he was one of the few people in the industry who were really willing and able to make computing and personal devices for it dirt cheap and for all. Not only in North America, but also, and more importantly so for us, in good ole Europe.
And while Mr. Jobs was not one of them, the VC-20 and C-64s were the Apple IIs we could afford then here in babana land. Thank you Jack! And for the 64k of RAM 'n' sprites 'n' 2 busses too.plink, 4 comments praise or blame!
Not many people here in good ole Europe might have noticed, but today the last specimen of the most advanced and most senseless fighter plane that humanity - a small elite part of the US engineering elite part of humanity that is - has built so far, rolled of the assembly line. And most probably nobody will build the like of it again for the forseeable future. It is simply without sensible application.
Requiescat in pace, F-22 Raptor. You were and are one hell of a dangerous an' expensive toy 4 far 2 few.plink, nix praise or blame!
He was the greatest marketer the last decades of the old and, even more, the first of the new century have seen, which surely is no small feat with so many trying so very hard in that field.
Steven Jobs was a man of impeccable taste as it seems and stamina for many. In the end he even virtually beat his eternal rival Gates.
While, out of St. Mary's Parish, we really try to follow events in Northern America, due to ressource restrictions we are always late and never timely.
Mr. Layton was a member of an endangered species, the old style political class and a politician. We liked him because he mostly gave the impression of Paul Newman sitting on a city council.
