Nothing is sacred!
You can now run Android and all its programmes on your iPhone!

I probably will not be the first with this notice but I can try.

They call it "duel-boot". Is that a Freudian slip, or just an ordinary one?

  After the famous "1984" commercial by Apple it is all rather sad to see
Steve Jobs in the role of all-knowing, all-seeing dictator.

The fact that some engineers have managed to crash Android through
the Iron Curtain has got to be good; and, I hope, will make Steve Jobs
"go for a Gorbachev" rather than the North Korean option.

Reminds me of an old IT joke:

Today I have manage to emulate a 4 digit calculator on my DEC-Alpha.
Tomorrow I will do the reverse.

A related quote about Seymour Cray:

"When he was told that Apple Computer had just bought a Cray to help design the next Apple Macintosh, Cray commented that he had just bought a Macintosh to design the next Cray."

:) Reminds me of an old soviet joke from some years ago:

"Capitalism is the exploitation of one man by another. Communism is
exactly the opposite."

Which, in turn, reminds me of yet another soviet joke:

"In the Soviet Union we have freedom of speech, freedom of press, and
freedom of association. In America, they have freedom *after* speech,
freedom after press, and freedom after association."

That version doesn't work quite as well as the way I heard it. In your version it sounds like Communism does not have any exploitation in it at all. The version I've heard works better as a play on words:

"The difference between capitalism and communism is that in capitalism man exploits man and in communism it's the other way around."

Ahhh! Old Soviet Union jokes!

Question: How can you tell communism is not based on science?

Answer: If it were based on science they would have tried it out on dogs first.

You're probably right. My brain is only half here today. It's Friday.

Next, can we do elephant jokes and dead baby jokes? I bet there are
people here who aren't old enough to remember those. Come to think of
it, I'm old enough to have forgotten most of them.

This one was from communist Eastern Germany.

Do you know why toilet paper is called "Stalin's Revenge" there?
because if can't make you heart red, it certainly makes your ass the right color.

Your not serious are you. My kids come home from school and tell me ALL the
same jokes that we told when I was there age. I'm afraid there are no new
jokes.

Although I was surprised my kids didn't know 'what do you have if you have a
cricket ball in your left hand, and a cricket ball in your right hand?' -
probably only known by those who have suffered the cultural imposition of
the British Empire.

An ordinary one. A Freudian slip is when you say one thing and mean  
your mother.

Interestingly enough, when I was a boy, my mother actually wore a
garment called
a slip.

I have never tried cleaning a donkey with toilet paper; I suspect if I tried
I would end up like yesterday's newspaper:

red all over . . .  :)

Oh; what does one call a Soviet submarine: big, red and full of submariners!

GAWD you guys! Everyone loves the underdog, that is until he succeeds, and then he becomes Darth Vader to everyone.

Every despot starts out at least thinking he is making the world a better place. But then, supposing you are the "benevolent dictator", what do you do with all the other guys who also want to make the world a better place, but their idea of better is the polar opposite of yours, and they are demonstrating (sometimes violently) outside your office building? Well yer gonna hafta round em up, which is going to piss off their friends and family, who heretofore may not have exactly been against you, but now they sure are! So you have more and more people who disagree with you, so you have to do something about them now. Before you know it the whole country is against you, and you were only trying to make things better! Oh the injustice!

I'm just glad Steve Jobs is not trying to take over the world. (Is he?)

Bob
