Legal Well. Raise your hands if you didn't see this one coming. Nobody is safe from Apple's and Microsoft's legal crusade against Android, not even Samsung, which supplies a lot of chips to Apple. Apple has sued Samsung for copying Cupertino's look and feel in various Samsung devices. This is about as surprising as the tides rolling in. Update: And Samsung's going to strike back. Hit 'm hard, Samsung. I don't like you anymore than any of these other patent trolls, but maybe we'll finally see it all crash and burn.

I have a feeling that, apart from warp drive and instant terraforming, we will achieve all of the fictional tech from Star Trek within the next hundred years or so.


I hope that most of the good stuff happens before holodecks come around, because let's face it, once the holodecks are available, nobody's going to be working on anything. Ever again.

Good point! Star Trek was all about unrealistically upstanding and moral characters, but let's face it: We would all be far worse than Reginald Barclay given a Holodeck. I'm thinking more like Caprica; no consequences for our actions in the virtual world so most everyone would live out their darkest fantasies.
