    I didn't think this was even a thing that still happened. Most cars haven't had a non-integrated radio for quite some time.

    Sucks, though.

    To clarify, she was kidnapped and forced to beg for money from tourists, then her captors cut off her arm so she would be better at it.

    How much is a stolen radio from a 12-year-old car worth, anyhow

    "enough", I guess, but still

    What car is it? I'm mostly curious because integrated stereos started to become a thing in the early 90s. My car is also 12 years old, and has an integrated radio (sort of, it's integrated in that you can't remove it without dismantling the dashboard).

    To "pull one's tripe out" is to work very hard. The term is sometimes used in cycling in the context of making someone else work very hard. Jens Voigt is what's known as a "rouleur", a strong rider good in most situations, but too much of a generalist to routinely challenge for stage or event victories. They're tactically useful for a cycling team because they can be used to force the pace of a group to a level that not every rider in the group will be able to sustain, either because you want to drop them off the back of the group, or make them work so hard that they'll be useless on the following day's stage.

    The Tour Down Under stage 5 yesterday featured a solo breakaway towards the end of stage by Nathan Haas. In chasing him down, the pace of the main group of riders (the peloton) was set by Voigt and JJ Rojas, who were both looking to end the breakaway and dump most of the field off the back of the group, leaving their respective team principals to challenge for the stage win.

    Between the two of them, they pushed the pace so high that the group that reached the bottom of the final climb first consisted of less than twenty riders of 130-ish that started the stage. Dropping riders off the back of the group like that is extremely difficult, usually that kind of break is generated by using a couple of sacrificial riders to break away in one go, generating a gap that they can then work to widen.

    EDIT: From the man himself

    what do you mean by 'release the spec'? are you suggesting that apple's educational initiatives ought to be open source?

    It's ok that Apple's education initiative isn't open source. It would be nicer if it was, but as it is, the potential for technical lock-in is low. The interactive elements are all HTML 5 and Javascript. The videos are all H.264. Textbook / lesson publishers will have no issue "porting" their content to new platforms.

    It seems like Apple are trying to do with ebooks what Microsoft pulled a few times with various technologies, where they start introducing proprietary extensions to previously universal formats, and then relying on the leverage of market dominance to force out competitors who are unable to replicate those features. In some ways they're going further than Microsoft ever did by looking to also become the publisher of the content.

    When I say "release the spec" I mean that if they're going to extend a format outside of of the standard that exists for it, they should at least make what they're doing transparent, so that they don't lock other vendors out of being able to use that content.

    What will probably happen with ebooks, though, is the same trajectory most media has followed in the transition from physical to digital:
    physical format -> a series of platform-specific, non-interoperable formats -> the failure of those services -> platform agnostic file formats.

    That's what happened with music, with films, with mobile web, is happening with TV, and looks like it is beginning to happen with ebooks in that closed ecosystems with DRM are popping up that are probably going to burn a few people when they fail.
