Link of the day

The USA's military budget increase of $48 million is larger than the annual military budget of any other country!
The 20 Macs that mattered most according to Wired, during the 20th anniversary after the first Apple Mac came out.
Doug Engelbart, the inventor of the device we now call the mouse on what it felt like to launch the point-and-click revolution 15 years before the Mac. Oh, and he also did some work on videoconferencing, hyperlinks, networked collaboration and digital text editing.
The Worldwatch Institute's magazine which says that while annual ice cream consumption in Europe last year was $11 billion, clean drinking water for the entire planet could have been provided by spending $10 billion. Rather revealing! Madras denizens would no doubt argue that as little as .5% of that amount (Rs. 23 crores approx) would solve a significant portion of their water problems.
