Apple ships with FedEx Air?

It's monday night, one full business day after my iBook reached Apple.

It was shipped to them via DHL, in their box. But it's coming back to me via FedEx Air. That's a first. I've always thought DHL was fater than FedEx Air... and the customer service 'attitude' I get from DHL has always been pretty much top notch. O.o ::wonders if Apple is finding DHL too expensive or something::

Yay, iBook's back!

Spiffyquick too. Shipped off friday afternoon, arrived today at noon.

The parts used were apparently:
APPB-630-6598 PCBA MLB Q73A SAMSUNG VRAM APPB-630-6597 PCBA MLB Q73A HYNIX VRAM.

WTF?

Rather, it's a gun that shoots out teddy bears. Armed with parachutes. But teddy bears.

Oh, and Apple apparently has Get a Mac ads. They're... interesting.

See them here: http://www.apple.com/getamac/

Granted, I find them a bit silly and... somewhat superficial, but that does seem to be the image Apple is going for. Easy to use, simple....... and those aren't ads targeted towards "power" users (eh, me, in this case)

Oooh... "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya"

This one is definitely a keeper.

It's an interesting idea. If you could control dreams, and if you got that working one step further, so reality was just part of a more continuous, more stable dream, then you might be able to change reality. If you could process enough of the data to make the modifications...

Come to think of it, the instant transportation in Ender's series was also based on this, wasn't it? The computer would all data on the stuff to be moved, copy it to a "buffer space" and then write it back into the real world. Which shouldn't be too far off in our future, really. We're already transporting some small particle or other... we just need much more powerful computers........ But that would also mean you could do anything... not just move, but also copy... etc... Granted, no one knows if there really are souls, and if they're really one-per-customer only...
