This computer has almost all the same parts as I do in my new computer! Ha, sweet.

"Okuda wanted to embed two functional touch screens that used Star
Trek GUIs from the original show. But those fell by the wayside for
practical reasons, as someone would have had to write the custom
interface software from scratch. "

I made one, and even sent it to him in 2009. Why didn't he ask me to help him?

2 programs use the UI, LCARS and Ultra Media Remote

I think you may have missed the part where he said that the ORIGINAL Star Trek was the one for him and your design is clearly TNG and later.

True, but for Okuda, I'd have done it.

I thought you said he wanted the fastest RAM possible? Why 1333 MHz then?

Also I see in one of the quotes, the subject falls prey to a misnomer that's been prevalent for some scary reason in the past couple of years: bleeding edge is less 'good' than cutting edge. People seem to think cutting edge was great, but in order to seem clever and one-up the cutting edge folk in one fell swoop, they came up with bleeding edge. What these people didn't realize is that you have to be cut before you can bleed. The cut comes first. Then the blood.

So to say "bleeding edge" is to say "not quite cutting edge". Just an FYI for future reference :-)

Amen brother!  I have been arguing this point for a while.  I hate when marketing morons come up with terms they think are cool.  Bleeding edge (never seen an edge bleed, but ok,) Cloud computing (the cloud isn't something new, its this thing we have been calling the Internet for the last 28 years or so,) and others are new ways of addressing old ideas.

Unfortunately there are more marketing dweebs than people with brains that function, so these ignorant terms will stick.  Time to go and access the intercloud on my bloody edge neatbook....

My god... I am not sure if you all should be stoned for creating such a beautiful and sexy machine, or if I should offer to have your babies...
