Though the practical applications are what will keep Deep Video afloat as the technology establishes itself, it was the sheer niftiness
that marveled tech writers who attended the DEMO showcase.
His overall time then was only two spots quicker than that posted by Frisby Fassan, but perhaps crucially he was some 30 hundredths quicker on sectional-going from an `alien' trap two tonight, such niftiness

But it takes a lot of gas-guzzling power for such niftiness
and fuel figures are not particularly economic.
Since cost, practicality, and NASA bureaucratic coagulation--not the niftiness
of space travel, which everybody's already convinced of--are the subjects on which light must be shed before Mars flight can become any more than a rhetorical goal, Wilford might have turned his considerable skills as a reporter toward these.
If Geoffrey's niftiness
with the knife whetted your appetite, quite by chance Bill Oldfield's recipe in tomorrow's Journal is for rabbit casserole.
