There (could be) aliens on that there planet!

Well maybe, maybe not, Kepler does however sit at the right distance from it’s sun and has conditions that look favourable to complex life.

NASA have recently found this planet during it’s Kepler mission.

“The planet, Kepler 22-b, lies about 600 light years away, about two-and-a-half times the size of Earth, with a temperature of about 22 degrees Celsius, allowing liquid water to exist on the surface. Its year is about 290 days long.”

Come on ACCC this is getting rediculous!

Come on ACCC this is getting rediculous!

Apple have unbeleivibly one an appeal to the lifting of an injunction to stop Samsung selling the Galaxy tab in Australia.

This is getting beyond a joke, Samsung would be up for huge damages against Apple and should already start, The ACCC should be stepping in here on claims of anti-compeditive behaviour.

It’s about time all this BS stopped and Apple swollow their pride and admmit they did not invent the world and they cannot claim patents for everything. This just pisses me off to be quite honest.

I’ll put $100 on the High Court judges using Apple devices and rulling in favour of their favourite!
