"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

Today is a very sad day in our little world. It’s been reported that
Arthur C. Clarke, among the most influential visionaries in technology
and a personal hero of Engadget readers and editors both, has died in
hospital care at the age of 90. Along with his many written works (such
as the infamous and immeasurably influential 2001: A Space Odyssey),
Clarke was possibly best known for conceptualizing the geostationary
communications satellite — clearly one of the most important
technological innovations in history.

Arthur, you’ll be dearly missed.
