Best of the Rest: Stair-Climbing Robots, a Brief History of the Web

There's a load of great tech news happening out there every day, and, unfortunately, we just can't cover it all. Here are a few of the other noteworthy things we saw today on our never-ending journey through the wild, wild Web.
  • Stairs have proven a formidable opponent for robots (and their makers), but both creator and created keep trying to climb. Core77 rounds up (with videos) a number of robots unhappy with just one floor. [From: Core77].
  • What do Arpanet, Unix, e-mail, and CYCLADES have to do with each other? They're all part of the history of the Internet (in a nutshell). [From: Six Revisions]
  • Our friends over at TUAW recently interviewed Fake Steve Jobs (aka Dan Lyons). [From: TUAW]
  • Yesterday's Atlantis launch set us off into a Google wormhole as we searched for high-def launch footage. Fortunately, NASA provides incredible HD videos of the recent Ares 1-X rocket launch and still more. [From: NASA]
  • If you're still running Mac OS 7 on an old-school Performa 600 (and who could blame you?), then you'll be thrilled to know there's now a Twitter client just for you. [From:, via: TUAW]
