Jury Finds Newegg Infringed Patent, Owes $2.3 Million
As a small business owner, I just wish they would collect sales tax. I know that sounds crazy, but to be able to write off expenses and proved you pay sales tax, its far easier to go to Amazon now. Otherwise, I have to pay the sales tax to the state by check at a later time which is a PITA.
First Experimental Evidence That Time Is an Emergent Quantum Phenomenon

VirtualBox 4.3 Comes With New Multi-Touch Support, Virtual Cam and More
If you have some bare-metal lying around, I would recommend XenServer (http://www.xenserver.org/). I used to be a VMWare proponent for SMB's, until I saw that product. If you need a virtual container on an existing workstation, VirtualBox is really the only player in town. I used to use VMWare Server, but Vmware doesn't support it anymore. Its a shame, it was a great product and I'm still running a few VM's on my beefy workstation for testing.
Comparing Today's Computers To 1995's
For reminding me how old I am! Ugh, you young wiper snappers. Back in my day we had to mess with bootup scripts call the autoexec.bat and config.sys just to get the mouse to work along with our soundcards. We had a few Megabytes of ram and we liked it. We had a few Megabytes of storage and we were fine with it!
I disagree with alot of what people have said about the computers not changing as much though. The architecture may have not changed that much, but our experience in using them has. I could live without my Samsung Galaxy 2 in my daily life going to customer sites and/or driving without getting lost. My regular computer runs several OS's at the same-time using Vmware, without having to dual-boot. Browsing the Internet takes seconds as does compiling most of my development software. I think we've come a long ways.
Web Usage-Based Billing On Its Way
Start locally then in your township. Or start a consortium in the neighborhood / purchase some dedicated circuits. This "shifting profit" model is ridiculous as they are already making fistloads of cash on my monthly service to begin with. If they offered more value then that would be fine, but what value would consumers have going to this model?
United States Loses S&P AAA Credit Rating
Downgrading will matter, but I agree with parent, this is a bit odd.
"About 90 percent of AAA securities backed by subprime mortgages from 2006 and 2007 were later downgraded to junk status"

Is Apple Turning Into the Next "Evil Empire"?
Completely agree with your post, but no hardware manufacturer has attempted to come out with a table that has a reasonable cost and better functionality. XOOM at $800? Seriously? Almost like an Apple II E clone manufacturer claiming like the clone is better than the original and charging more for it. As soon as a tablet manufacturer comes out with a reasonably priced tablet, I still believe that Apple will maintain its dominance.
Mystery 'Missile' Identified As US Airways Flight 808
Experts can get things wrong. Doctors make mistakes all the time, albeit with higher consequences. In anycase, every aviation expert I've talked to said they thought it was a contrail.
Rackspace vs. Amazon — the Cloud Wars
And hosting companies are starting to cash in on the new buzzword as well. I recently ran into it myself when figuring out an issue for a client. My write up: of the issue that I came across.
Former Military Personnel Claim Aliens Are Monitoring Our Nukes
Maybe something to do with the God Helmet?
Apple Outs Anti-Jailbreak Update
So wait. It doesn't just work?
High-Frequency Programmers Revolt Over Pay
I agree in part, but the higher ups do not take any "Higher" risk in making those trades. If the programmer screws up with his code and it causes the company to lose a significant amount of money, he will be fired. If the higher up does the same, he is rewarded with a significant parting compensation package. That being said, if the programmers are unhappy with their pay and feel they can do better, then they should leave and start their own trading firm. Actions speak louder than words...
Dell Says 90% of Recorded Business Data Is Never Read
In my experience with small businesses, it may be never read but will absolutely need to be found for some type of emergency presentation/proposal.
Home Computers Equal Lower Test Scores
the tests are wrong and not the children?
Pentaho 3.2 Data Integration
So is PDI something like a database agnostic version of MSSQL DTS packages?
Apple Surpasses Microsoft In Market Capitalization
Okay, so do we now hate Apple and like Microsoft? I'm really confused.
NASA Space Habitat Research Goes Undersea
And it continues to be done Dennis Chamberland has been designing these things for a while. He is heading up some sort of expedition to start an undersea colony.
Why wouldn't they at least get some commercial industry advice instead of re-inventing the wheel. It seems a bit of a waste of money in my opinion.
