Ok, I am really starting to fixate on this tiny laptop.  The small size and low price are fascinating.  While many mainstream pubs are lumping this in with other gadgets targted at the tween or education market I think that would have value to many users.  Join me in my temporary obsession.

Interview – Paul Tibbets, first person to drop atomic bomb

Paul Tibbets, who piloted the Enola Gay on her mission to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, died last week at the age of 92. I found this 8 minute interview with Mr. Tibbets on YouTube. The clip is from the documentary “Atomic Cafe” which was released in 1982 when the Cold War was still quite hot. I’d guess the interview itself is from the mid-sixties.

Take the “graphic images” warning to heart. There are images of Hiroshima wounded mixed in with the interview.

He might just win my vote. More likely that Lucasfilm will get them for copyright infringement. Enjoy.
