The showering cop-out isn't just weak sauce because it's an old sitcom trope, but it's gotta sting all the more with the knowledge of the fact that there is no traditional showering on the ISS.
I don't believe love has to be unconditional, but when there are so many conditions to be met, maybe it's time to look for love elsewhere.
Don't get me wrong, the new AirPort base stations are special. For the first time since Apple joined the home-networking club back in 2003, these two devices share the exact same design and shape: compact and pretty.
It's even more impressive in the case … Read more
