    Here is another reason to switch. Apple should post this cool story on their site. George shoots his Dell notebook for crashing one too many times.

    Pete :D

    LAFAYETTE, Colo. - George Doughty's computer will never crash again. It will never run again, either.

    Doughty was jailed during the weekend on suspicion of shooting his Dell computer four times with a revolver earlier that day in the middle of the Sportsman's Inn Bar and Restaurant.

    He then allegedly hung the destroyed laptop on the wall "like a hunting trophy," said Lt. Rick Bashor with the Lafayette Police Department.

    Doughty, 48, owns the establishment. He entered the bar from his office, announced he was going to shoot his computer and returned to his office. After 30 minutes, police said, Doughty set his laptop on the floor 4 to 6 feet away from him, warned two customers at the bar to cover their ears and fired away. The computer took all the bullets. No one was injured.

    Because Doughty is accused of putting the customers and bartender in danger, he was arrested on suspicion of felony menacing, reckless endangerment and the prohibited use of weapons.,1406,KNS_350_1787279,00.html

    Does anyone even care anymore?

    I think we need something that detects same threads and then leads you to a 'is this the same thread link'
    I know it might take some effort but aint is better than looking at the same thread twice or thrice?
