Yeah the new icons really look awful ;) But keep in mind that iOS7 is currently in beta, so they’ll probably take another look at those icons and the overall design. Don’t know to what extend, but reading everyone’s reactions I’m assuming, and hoping, they’ll take it back to the drawing board.

As for the new Mac Pro, I kinda like it! :) And why are people prejudging the Mac Pro about the fact that the design looks like a recycle bin..? (@FinalDestiny, some pics do look delicious though :) ) They’re mainly using this design because of the air flow or something and that it requires only 1 fan to cool the whole tower. You’ll probably pay a few pennies for this machine, but it’s going to be really powerful, so who really cares that it looks a little strange.

How are you guys doing? I qualified by solving A, B, C-small and C-med, but am stuck on C-large and D at the moment :P

Very nice! I’ve done A, B and C-small as well, but my computer couldn’t handle C-med. I’ve thought of a much faster way now, but it’s too late. Don’t think C-large will be working though.

And am I the only one who thinks that D is impossible, haha ;) btw, what languages are you guys using? I’m using PHP.

You can barely trust the default money, that need to have physical support in the back. How can you trust money that jump in value only because “Now they are cool and awesome!”? What happens when they will not be awesome and cool?

At the moment people do not trust banks, so they invest their money in resources that are reliable. Bitcoins are not tied to a bank (so it can’t go bankrupt), which makes it reliable, just like gold. There is also no inflation in Bitcoins, because the system is built in a way that there can only be around 21 million bitcoins.

For those of you who do not know what bitcoins are, I suggest watching this video.

Yeah, I know this has been discussed before but it looks like things have really changed the last week. The value has doubled in only 7 days! Partially caused by the bank crisis in Cyprus.

What do you guys think, would it be a good idea to buy them as an investment? Do any of you have bitcoins?

For the people who do believe in the whole end-of-the-world thing, technically you could skip December 21st by crossing the International Date Line which is between Hawaii and New Zealand.

There’s a program called IETester, but running IE in browser mode works fine as well, I do that myself.
