    Photos Suggest China Might Have a Hypersonic Railgun

    This is a prop it's not a Hypersonic Railgun i doubt is even a real weapon. The weight of something this huge on the forward / bow of a ship alone if real would cause issues for stability and the forward part of the ship would be farther down into the water. Also if something that huge and...

    Apple seems to be chasing it's tail and not sure what to do these days with it's Mac line up. They wanted to kill off the Mac mini and Mac Pro 2+ years ago but never did but It wouldn't surprise me if the did kill off the Mac lines and stick with just their phone and IPad due to ROI on these...

    AT&T: Letting Us Buy Time Warner Will Be "Good For Consumers"

    at&t was the sinking ship in this deal, I'm just surprised TW went along with being swallowed up by them.

    Amen to that ... look at some of the photo taken back in the 1800's and before auto focus and a lot of tech that helps most pro or non pros make incredible shots. Perfect example, Ansel Adams ... a man who could take a simple shot of cow dung and make the subject a master piece photo.
