Elon Musk does not appreciate criticism it seems. Billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, the CEO of several high-profile American companies, broadcast to his 22 million social media followers on Sunday an unfounded and disparaging claim about an expert caver who criticized a miniature submarine he made. Musk attacked Vernon Unsworth, who helped in the rescue… Continue reading Elon Musk should let results speak for themselves
Dead Terrorist, classy to the end
I refuse to use his name. He gave up his right to a human name and his right to be a member of the human race years ago, and the shot that killed him was possibly the most moral action ever undertaken. He was a terrorist who died at the hand of the agents of… Continue reading Dead Terrorist, classy to the end

But I really, really want one of these. I mean, that is just one funky piece of personal electronics! I use my wife’s one more… Continue reading Durn you Apple!
This makes no sense. LOS ANGELES – File-sharing software company LimeWire has lost a court battle to the major recording companies. A judge with the US District Court in New York ruled this week that the company and its Chairman Mark Gorton were liable for inducing copyright infringement. The decision doesn’t mean the site will… Continue reading Limewire convicted
I have no problem with Apple products but the glazed eyed zealotry of their users frightens me. I approach all new technology with hostile scepticism: I think this dates back to my time working in San Jose during the late nineties.
