In the News "Ferdinand A. Porsche, who designed the original Porsche 911, the snazzy, powerful sports car that became the lasting signature of the German automobile company founded by his grandfather and later run by his father, died on Thursday in Salzburg, Austria. He was 76." I believe only Italians can design beautiful cars (I mean, game over, kids), but there's no denying that the 911 is a true icon. Cars technically don't have a place on OSNews, but Ferdinand Porsche's passing cannot go by unmentioned.

Before the Marshall Stack there effectively was no Rock, no Punk and no Metal


Perhaps but that doesn't mean they wouldn't exist without the Marshall Stack. It's not like gear like the Vox AC30 (used by, among others, Brian May & Ritchie Blackmoore) didn't exist prior to Marshall's stuff.
