Rat brain flies jet | The Register This is too funny not to link to. Basically, some jokers with too much research funding have rigged up a bunch of rat brain cells to a flight simulator... and the damn thing flew the plane! Strangely, I have this crazy image of serious, earnest aerospace suits trying to sell rats in little cages as the future of autopilot technology...!

Next up: Security bugs take a bite out of Apple - except, unlike in PC land, only in theory. Has anyone targeted these systems? Are there any viruses or trojans out there that exploit these weaknesses? No! That's the smug delight of being a mac owner! I think I'd only ever use a PC now from behind the relatively less bothersome safely of a corporate firewall.
