 Carrying on with our tangential pedantry, Gabberattack used the present tense, I am from Czechoslovakia, not I was born in Czechoslovakia. It made me wonder because, as you've pointed out, despite Czechoslovakia not existing for the past 21 years, there are people who still think it exists. It just seemed odd relating your current position to what was past.It's like a Kazakh stating I am from the Soviet Union. You can take that statement one stage further by declaring...
I think those debating to what degree Mandela was a terrorist or not are overlooking the greater picture:   The perpetrators of Apartheid decided to  use their position of power to oppress and inflict state sanctioned terror upon the majority of the South African population.   Mandela, having reached his position of power, was in a position to inflict terror upon those who had been the oppressors.  Yet he chose to use his power to try and bring all within South Africa...
 that's interesting as Czechoslovakia no longer exists.
Actually most MacBooks and MacBook Pros from late 2008 together with iMacs from early 2009 onwards can use AirDrop as well.See http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4783
 There's a good point.  I think one of the daftest things I'd occasionally experience was a website with nothing but the black box demanding you install Flash.  That is poor website design: it's so easy to put web code pointing to alternative non-flash text and links. Anecdotally there was a restaurant chain which had such a poor website.  I thought I'd look at the website again today.  The bad flash-based website has gone but so have several of its  branches.  Maybe that...
Another lesson here, a web store using Flash is either shooting itself in the foot, or willfully ignoring at least 80% of mobile customers.
The UK online store is quoting 1 to 3 days wait for the wi-fi 16 and 32 GB models, all other retina minis have a 5 to 10 day wait time.

If they had adopted the current naming convention a couple of years earlier it would have been nice to have seen Lion called Cupertino instead, in honor of 25 years of the Macintosh.   On reflection there was a 20th anniversary Mac (presumably for 20 years of Apple), but no 25th anniversary machine.   What a 25 years it has been, albeit 12 to 15 years of OS X depending on where you draw the line.   Mavericks makes it a joy to use a Mac, not that it's ever been...
