Photographers, You're Being Replaced By Software
Examples (pretty) please?
Just curious to see what the fuss is about.
Ask Slashdot: Skype Setup For Toddler's Room?
Or, iPod touch + Skype + Wifi, in a plastic casing, and you could wall-mount it fairly easily.
Chinese Boy Claims To Have Cat-Like Night Vision
I'll have to second that.
I've always had an uncanny ease to move about in near darkness but never thought much of it. A few years ago when I got my right eye corrected through laser surgery, the doctors couldn't believe how wide my pupils could open up; makes sense.
Augmented Reality's Disruptive Potential
Here is another take: you put up (virtual) anti-homophobia posters on the walls of the Vatican, or, you setup a (virtual) gallery of banned artworks before prominent government buildings in China.
Using Tablets Becoming Popular Bathroom Activity
>> Isn't reading still the most popular bedtime activity?
> I though it was sleeping. I'm way out of touch these days..
I most certainly had something else in mind. ;)
Humanoid Robot Wakes In Space, Tweets
What's your point?
Oh, and the posters are laminated, just so you know. ;)
Researchers Report Spike In Boot Time Malware
I don't even remember the last time I've rebooted; I must be safe! ;)
Apple: "We must Have Comprehensive Location Data"
Undercover uses the (cached) location details of your device to send to its servers whenever it gets a chance, to help (re)locating it if/when lost/stolen.
Hypertext Creator: Structure of the Web 'Completely Wrong'
what about blog trackbacks (or were they called pingbacks?), but for any/all documents.
Apple AirPlay Private Key Exposed
I'd love to see/gain the ability to direct sound from the operating system out to the Airport Express, (instead of only from iTunes itself,) such as when watching a movie on a DVD or even a video on YouTube.
IBM Charged With Bribing Korean, Chinese Officials
somewhat offtopic, but, I used to get 5 mods points every few days, without fail.
now, perhaps at least since the new look/interface, no more.
(perhaps I should dig into the options and see what I can find.)
Getting Past Censorship With Unorthodox Links To the Internet
Can you extend a wifi network originating from a mobile device such as a mifi or iPhone (w/ iOS 4.3)?
ACLU's Mobile Privacy Developer Challenge
Where are the interactive firewall apps?
Slashdot Launches Re-Design
Yes, indeed, I cannot get enough of the added suspense and general sense of mystery now sprinkled about every page, and by this I mean that no matter which option I fiddle with I am unable to get rid of the 'stories' navbar that is cutting off a portion of every post/comment on the left margin. I love puzzles as much as the next cave dweller but this is a bit much; might be a way to promote the use of the 'quoted' text, since those are the only ones I can see properly. (Using Iron here.)
Nintendo Warns 3D Games Can Ruin Children's Eyes
Do they end up larger or smaller in the end?
McDonald's Hacked and Customer Data Stolen
What if his dad was trying to be funny?
Facebook Buys a Private File Sharing Service
You'd need to renew or extend the sharing, else it eventually all expires.

Plants Near Chernobyl Adapt To Contaminated Soil
Could it be that whatever fauna that survived, adapted and/or now thrives might do so under conditions perhaps harsher due to radiation, yet plausibly improved by a potentially reduced presence of any predator species, whom may not have fared as well, or may have been displaced?
Craigslist Removes Its Controversial Adult Section
In Sweden, prostitution is not illegal, but being a pimp and frequenting a prostitute are illegal. Imagine the wonderful nature of your transaction of: "if you stiff me, I can call the cops, and they'll arrest you, and I walk away." Clients won't screw their prostitutes in this case. The same with pimps. "Go ahead, slap me... I'll call the cops, and they'll haul you away, and I can admit openly that I'm a prostitute, and I won't get taken away."
How about making prostitution a SAFE profession, rather than demanding it be illegal to stop people from doing it? If you're concerned about their health from the sex alone, either physical and/or mental, then when shall we expect an intent to make promiscuity itself illegal?
reminds me of a documentary where a camera crew was tagging along to an early morning bust of illegal (Mexican) workers at a few plants in California; targeting 'the worker' (instead of the corporations) seemed a clear proponent to imposing and sustaining horrible working (and even living) conditions onto the workforce
