    What about...

    the well known MTV fight :D ...

    Ok... maybe not a good idea, guess, but they could change this time :p

    Interesting topic, but not really a good title coming from BBC, why don't they just talk about them without the Vs ?

    I'll try to see that...

    slight error in facts

    If I remember correctly, the corporation, Apple, was named after his favorite orchird in Oregon that had Apple Trees.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I haven't read anywhere that apples are his favorite fruit.

    Also, what about the Newton, ahead of its time?

    What about neXT?

    Just me rambling :)

    You guys might want to set up a couple of mirrors for a QT. I imagine the bandwidth for something like this might be a little overwhelming.

    But whatever. Can't wait to see it.

    What if the Bears were all 14 inches tall? What would be the score of today's game?

    What about Ditka, would he be mini too?

    No he would be full sized.

    Oh, then i change my answer too. i though it was a mini ditka.
