    He then quipped that while "I may have invented it, but I think Bill made it famous."

    I don't care. Sometimes (often), brilliant innovations come from mistakes. Penicillin and rubber were both invented by mistake. And many more other things as well...

    I can't understand why all of this. It is just a keyboard shortcut to execute a function/task (i.e. useless if your hardware becomes unresponsive/frozen).

    But the reset button will always work!
