Fight Against Maturity

Do you have a recent MacBook? Turn it into a seismograph.

This image was caught on my MacBook running SeisMac 2.0. The squiggles are the result of tapping on the MacBook palm rest.


You can get a free copy of SeisMac at this link.

I also put a post about this on TechNudge, where I am an occasional contributor. Find it here.

Your truck fell in a hole? That’s a parking ticket, mac.

There’s more at the Daily Mail

If a tree fell on your car and you escaped death by inches, you might expect some sympathy from your local council. But there was no sign of compassion from Wychavon District Council for Nicky Clegg of Stoulton, Worcs, after when a tree crashed down on her car as she drove her 82-year-old mother and 11-year-old son.

Police dragged the wrecked car – with crushed bonnet, smashed windscreen and broken wing mirrors – to the roadside and told Mrs Clegg she could leave it there and pick it up the following day. When she came back, a parking ticket was stuck on the window.
