links for 2009-1-23: Flying Car, McNealy to advise Obama on open-source, VirtualBox 2.1.2

  • Flying Car Prepares for Test Drive - "If it survives its first test flight, the Terrafugia Transition, which can transform itself from a two-seater car to a plane in 15 seconds, is expected to land in showrooms in about 18 months’ time."  That wording sounds ominous.
  • Sun founder to advise Obama on open source software - "The government ought to mandate open source products based on open source reference implementations to improve security, get higher quality software, lower costs, higher reliability - all the benefits that come with open software"
Comments:

If your car could fly, why would you ever bother using the "car" part? Totally pointless...
