Reality Distortion Field
Reality distortion field (RDF) is a term coined by Bud Tribble at Apple Inc. in 1981, to describe company co-founder Steve Jobs’ charisma …

I’m able to do that on my Nokia E71 since I bought in in 2008.
Witchcraft to the ignorant, … Simple science to the learned. – Leigh Brackett, 1942
