"Acer Iconia W3 vs. iPad Mini"
This ad features a side-by-side comparison of the iPad Mini and the Acer Iconia W3 tablets. You can hear Siri talking from the iPad Mini, and she is amazed and jealous of the features of the Iconia. The Acer tablet is able to play Halo, use Microsoft Outlook and other Office products, and more while the iPad is portrayed as only being good for reading (i.e., a "consumer" devices as opposed to a "producer").
Small world. You come in mini too. Maybe we could read together. What the...! Is that Halo? I did not see that coming. You have Outlook and full Office? Wow, you are a real PC. Let's just go back to reading. Actually don't read that.
The Eve of the War
No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinse the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency men went to and fro over this globe about their little affairs, serene in their assurance of their empire over matter. It is possible that the infusoria under the microscope do the same. No one gave a thought to the older worlds of space as sources of human danger, or thought of them only to dismiss the idea of life upon them as impossible or improbable. It is curious to recall some of the mental habits of these departed days. At most terrestrial men fancied there might be other men upon Mars, perhaps inferior to themselves and ready to welcome a missionary enterprise.
