Eternal Flame

Image text: There's always the hope that if you sit and watch for long enough, the beachball will vanish and the thing it interrupted will return.

Not sure why this is posted on a Thursday morning, it is Thursday right?

But, this comic is possibly a reaction to the news yesterday that founder and CEO of Apple Steve Jobs has passed away.  The beachball "eternal flame" is what comes up on the screen of the Mac OS X Operating System when the computer is working on something.  It does not usually bode well for the application to eventually respond - which is referenced in the image text.

Kind of puts iPads in persepective.  Monkeys ARE controlling robot arms.  But I'm sure soon there will be an app for that.

This comic is describing all the work that has to go into a simple task by a computer, and when listed out it is impressive.  But, not as impressive as Maru the cat.

Maru is a cat that is fairly famous on youtube for cutely jumping in and out of things.

Here's an example of Maru jumping in and out of a large box.  Trust me, there are plenty more versions on youtube.
