Adobe goes to decimals again with CS 5.5

When you've hit as many nails on the head with your software like Adobe has with

its Creative Suite you're bound to eventually grasp for straws when it comes to new
product features.  With that in mind I give you Adobe Creative Suite 5.5.  CS5.5 is
mostly Adobe keeping up with current events by including improved HTML5 and CSS3
authoring tools along with more features to make production of content/applications
more streamlined for tablets, phones and other portable devices.  Upgrades for the
Master collection start at $549 but if that or any of the other available packages are
a bit too much scrilla for ya' you can now use CS on a subscription basis.  That's right
you can choose to use CS 5.5 for a year or month at a time starting at $65 per month
(depending on which plan you choose).  CS 5.5 is set to ship in the next 30 days.

Winklevoss Twins Can Row to a New Hobbie

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss must accept their $65 million settlement from
Facebook and move on.

A U.S. appeals court ruled Monday that the settlement — which was featured in the movie

The Social Network — still stands, despite the Winklevosses’ claim that Facebook did not

disclose an accurate valuation.

The suit stems from the Winklevosses’ claim that Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark

Zuckerberg stole their idea for the social-networking site. Zuckerberg and Facebook

deny the allegations, but agreed to settle in 2008. Since then, the Winklevoss twins

have attempted to secure a higher settlement by claiming that

Facebook is guilty of securities fraud.

Chief Judge Alex Kozinski wrote in Tuesday’s ruling. “And the courts might have obliged,

had the Winklevosses not settled their dispute and signed a release of all claims against Facebook.”

With both the district court and appeals court in agreement, it seems this may be the end of the

Winklevosses’ claim to any additional shares of Facebook.

“For whatever reason, they (the Winklevosses) now want to back out. Like the district court,

we see no basis for allowing them to do so,” Kozinski wrote. “At some point,

litigation must come to an end. That point has now been reached.”

Naked man attacks SWAT robot with AK-47
(I know Kyle here doesn't have an AK-47 but it still ties in with naked men shooting robots)

FA, Last Wednesday, Brevard County police responded to a homeowner's threat to take his life

and the life of anyone who tried to stop him and got a little more than they bargained for.
A SWAT team was summoned and they later deployed a robot mounted with cameras into
the house.  The owner answered by first running out naked, then kicking the robot before 
finally firing at it multiple times with an AK-47.  Despite attacking the $65,000 robot in the
buff with an fully-automatic weapon the dispute ended peacefully with the homeowner 
getting dressed and leaving his house with his hands up.  The robot remains in critical 
condition.

 

 

 

 

Brewmaster apologizes for bar pee

 

 

 

CHICAGO, April 12 (UPI) --

The brewmaster of Chicago's Goose Island brewery apologized

for urinating into beer glasses while standing on a bar during a birthday party.

 

Brewmaster Greg Hall, 45, whose family's Goose Island brewery

was recently purchased by Anheuser-Busch for $38 million,

said he was highly intoxicated Friday when he stood on the bar at

Bangers & Lace and urinated into two beer glasses,

the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday.

 

Hall said his memory of the incident is incomplete

due to his intoxication level, but he admitted it happened.

 

"I did what I did and I take responsibility for it," he said.

"I feel awful. I wouldn't stand [for] it if someone did it at my place

or if one of my people did something like that."

 

Matty Eggleston, the Bangers & Lace bartender who cleaned up the mess,

said he does not accept the apology.

"It was disgusting, vile and revolting," he said.

"We all do dumb things; that went to a level that was pure insult."

 

However, Bangers & Lace co-owner Matt Eisler

said the establishment is taking "the high road."

"You can imagine we're not happy,

but an apology has been offered and we'd like to move on,

" he said. "It's too bad because it started off as a cool night

with a bunch of people from Goose coming to our bar to drink beer."

 

 

 

Maine legalizing switchblades for one-armed people

 

 

(Reuters) -

Maine lawmakers on Wednesday approved legalizing switchblades for people with one arm,

moving close to becoming the first state to make such an exception

to laws that ban use of the spring-action knives.

 

Backers of the measure say legalizing switchblades would eliminate

a need for one-armed people to be forced to open folding knives

with their teeth in emergencies.

 

The bill to allow amputees and other one-armed people to carry the quick-opening knives

cleared Maine's Senate on Wednesday after passing the House on Tuesday, Senate officials said.

Until now, Maine banned the use of switchblades by anyone.

 

In most states, carrying switchblades is illegal

in most circumstances, though owning the knives may be allowed in some states.

Federal law allows their use by a person with one arm only on federal property

if the blade is shorter than three inches.

 

The Maine bill requires that the knives

have a blade that is three inches or shorter.

Governor Paul LePage is expected to sign the measure into law

in the next couple of days, said spokeswoman Adrienne Bennett.
