NASA JPL + SpaceX Falcon Heavy = Human Colony On Mars 2025.

I love Apple but my next focus work-wise will be mobile websites targeting iOS and Android. I was real keen on iPad only work but, well... Still love Apple. Mountain Lion, nice. Macs, great. MBP Retina, not killer for me. iPhone 5... I'll try my best to wait for iPhone 5S.
Airport Express dual-band seems to be working really well so far. Got it today.
