Well not really…
But the special effects team of the Star Wars movie, used LabVIEW from National Instruments to control the movements of a space ship.

A friend just bought one of the new 12″ PowerBooks and since this is his first mac, I wanted to send him a list of some applications that I use all the time.
Here is the list:

I looked today at Apple Store special deals website and found that they had a very cheap refurbished PowerBook:

So I told Kirsch about it, because I knew he was looking to buy one. Then he says to me: you should buy it!
I've been wanting to buy a new Apple computer for a while, since my iBook G3 600MHz is almost 3 years old, and I told my mom I was going to give it to her. So the idea of buying it started jumping in my head, until I finally decided to buy it.
But wait! there is more!
During the thanksgiving weekend I purchased an Impact 128 MB secure digital memory card for my digital camera (Optio S4i) at Walmart, because the price was really low (U$15). My friend Vanessa also purchased two memory cards of the same brand.
When I tried the memory in my camera, it seemed to work ok, but I noticed that the camera was taking more time to record the pictures. But then after taking a few more pictures, the camera displayed a black screen with the following message:
“Memory card error”
Vanessa also tried her memory and both cards failed with the same error message.
I even tried to format the memory card with the camera and it failed to do so.
I want to try the memory with a different type of camera to see whether the problem is caused when using that type of memory with an Optio S4i, or if it is a problem with the cards.
I have another memory SanDisk and it has been working great for the last 6 months.
