It is one thing to survive icebergs and shipwrecks, but old age gets us all eventually.
The last survivor of the Titanic’s sinking has died at 97. Dean was just two months old when she was placed in one of the ship’s lifeboats with her mother and brother; she once said of her celebrity status: “Until the wreckage of the Titanic was found in 1985, nobody was interested in me. Who expects to become famous at that age?”

So far I am not impressed so far with Microsoft’s Bing.
Microsoft on Thursday formally launched the travel section of its new Bing search engine.
In addition to search results, queries to Bing Travel yield direct links to tools that users can employ to book flights, hotel rooms, and other travel products. For instance, a search for “San Diego hotels” delivers property availability and pricing information.
When SouthWest’s unions returned the offer to management, do you think they got the rapping flight attendant to do it?
