By LARRY BUCHANAN and KAREN YOURISH FEB. 19, 2019 I don't know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy - yet Obama can make a deal with Iran, #1 in terror, no problem! The fake news media is going crazy with their conspiracy theories and blind hatred. @MSNBC & @CNN are unwatchable. @foxandfriends is great! This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton's losing campaign. Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?).Just like Russia Thank you to Eli Lake of The Bloomberg View - "The NSA & FBI...should not interfere in our politics...and is" Very serious situation for USA Crimea was TAKEN by Russia during the Obama Administration. Was Obama too soft on Russia? The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by "intelligence" like candy. Very un-American!

News / UK and world by Press Association February 18, 2019, 3:58 pm Send us a story Sign up to our Daily newsletter A man from New York has found an old Apple computer thought to be 30 years old in his parents’ attic in working order. John Pfaff, a professor at Fordham University School of Law, was shocked to discover his Apple IIe computer gathering dust in his parents’ attic, but was more surprised to find that it still worked after several decades of neglect. Mr Pfaff told Twitter that he felt 10 years old again after loading up old game disks and being sent down memory lane. “My kids thought things were insanely retro when my wife and I played NES Super Mario on the oldest’s Switch,” he said. “Tomorrow morning their definition of retro is going to shift significantly.” Among the video games the professor revealed are Neuromancer and Olympic Decathlon, as well as Adventureland, which resumed where he left the game as … [Read more...] about Man finds working 30-year-old Apple computer in his parent’s attic

Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Dave Barry December 30, 2018 We can summarize 2018 in two words: It boofed. We’re not 100 percent sure what “boofing” is, despite the fact that this very issue was discussed in a hearing of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. All we know for certain about boofing is that it is distasteful and stupid. As was 2018. In spades. What made this year so awful? We could list many factors, including natural disasters, man-made atrocities, the utter depravity of our national political discourse, and the loss of Aretha Franklin. Instead, we’ll cite one event that, while minor, epitomizes 2018: the debut of Dr. Pimple Popper. This is a cable-TV reality show featuring high-definition slo-mo close-up videos of a California dermatologist performing seriously disgusting procedures on individuals with zits the size of mature cantaloupes.

Editor's Note: Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft, died Monday in Seattle from complications of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was 65. Below is the transcript of Lesley Stahl's story on Allen, originally aired April 17, 2011. It's interesting how many big, hi-tech companies were started by two friends: like Hewlett and Packard, or Google's Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Microsoft was too. Bill Gates co-founded his company - one of the most important and successful in American history - with his high school buddy Paul Allen. Today, Allen is known more for his mega-yachts and palling around with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie than for his revolutionary ideas in the company's early years. But now Allen has written a memoir called "Idea Man," out this week, in which he not only gives an account of those ideas - he draws a dark portrait of his fellow co-founder and life-long friend. As Allen writes and tells "60 Minutes" correspondent Lesley Stahl - in one of the only in-depth interviews he … [Read more...] about Paul Allen and the birth of the PC, Microsoft
