Nuts. The link isn't working, at least for me here on an up-to-date Mac. I'll see if there's an update I can get for Flash, maybe I'm not up-to-date on that...

Does anyone have the direct link to the Windows Media Stream? I don't mean a link to the Flash page that will link me to the stream, but the actual stream URL. Thanks!

Al Gore will appreciate the environmentally friendly comment from Jim McNerney.

The rollout speeches are boring, but the plane looks cool. I saw a program on it yesterday and it uses composite plastics to make it lighter and stronger than if it was made from aluminum. Also, it has two big ol’ bad-ass engines instead of 4 smaller ones. A good looking bird for sure.

On the Boeing 787, for the first time, the engine nacelles will have scalloped rear-edge chevrons. The chevrons, developed by the 787 nacelle manufacturer Goodrich as a result of research carried out by Boeing with GE Aviation and Rolls-Royce, will cut down greatly on the noise made by fast-moving air exiting the engine shearing against the external air. This GEnx engine, mounted on GE's 747 test aircraft, clearly shows the nacelle chevrons. Credit: GE Aviation

I thought this was the unveiling of a new jetliner. Instead we get a continuation of ‘Live Earth’!

This is all meant to keep Airbus in suspense. I don’t know if Airbus did all this fluff when they rolled out their A380.
