Man Behind Hacks of Bush Family and Other Celebs Indicted In the US
Where can we find the data he leaked? Obviously he was trying to expose something. I figure at the bare minimum it'd make for an interesting read.
Anti-Game-Violence Legislator Arrested, Faces Gun Trafficking Charges
> Could we please stop with the endless pro-drug commentary?
It's not "pro-drug". It's "anti-prohibition".
This is by far the best expression of the issue I have ever seen. The current laws totally mimic prohibition laws from the early 1900's. Seems more like history just keeps on repeating itself.

Debunking the Lorentz System As a Framework For Human Emotions
This wouldn't be the first time that someone who was an amateur made some kind of major progress. It seems that the definition of amateur needs a rewrite. The guy in the article sounds like he's more stating the obvious at this point.
EU Court Holds News Website Liable For Readers' Comments
Thanks for producing a better summary of the article than what was posted on /.
Everyone is freaking out over some slippery slope, when in reality it looks more like the courts handled this in a totally reasonable manner. Even the fine was a reasonable one.
I think the bigger issue here is that the site didn't have anyone actively moderating the page.
Facebook Launches Advanced AI Effort To Find Meaning In Your Posts
I seriously don't give a shit what its first message is.
I dont know about that... I'd be a bit worried if it said "parasitic life form detected! EXTERMINATE EXTERMINATE EXTERMINATE!"
The possibilities of things going wrong from that first sentence is just too damn high.
FBI Admits It Controlled Tor Servers Behind Mass Malware Attack
So what source do you have to prove this?
Your Brain Waves Are a Password: How Your Next Car Will Check You're Not a Thief
Parent post deserves mod points so badly. I wish I had some.
Also, I wouldn't want something like this in a car anyway. At that point it's just about reverse engineering the way that type of data is logged. Knowing the companies we have today, there would be some type of global database getting 'hacked' on a daily basis for information.
AMD Next-Gen Kaveri APU Shipments Slip To 2014
AMD hardware is what's backing up the XBOne, PS4, and WiiU. I'm sure they have plenty of customers.
Lord Blair Calls for Laws To Stop 'Principled' Leaking of State Secrets
The EFF is a good start, and maybe the ACLU. All Snowden and Manning did was tell the truth. We should be *very* careful about outlawing the truth in America.
Little late for that.....
Archaeologists Discover Lost City In Cambodian Jungle
The article mentioned a lot of landmines around the landmark. I'm guessing that's one of the reasons why there hasn't been much looting.
UK Government Spending £6,000 Per Computer Every Year To Maintain Desktops

It's one of those things that sounds like a good idea at the start, but the more you look at the logistics of, the worse it gets.
Omnidirectional Treadmill: The Ultimate FPS Input Device?
You forgot to mention the part where you have to deal with getting shot and/or getting hurt while running for cover in the middle of a match.
If I couldn't play paintball, this would make for a decent second possibly.
Internet Poker Could Make a Comeback By Going Brick-and-Mortar
Wouldnt internet poker going brick-and-mortar make it a casino?
Pakistan Boycotting Call of Duty, Medal of Honor Games
As a matter of fact, I bet they would. They'd probably try to market it for the shock factor and make millions!
New York Pistol Permit Owner List Leaked
There's a big difference between outing records of consumer complaints or public donation information and posting private information relating to a large group of people. There is no gain to be had aside from fear and a lot of problems for a lot of people.
It's not like when you 'Out' these businesses etc you're posting personal addresses of the people who complained along with the personal information of everyone who works there either.
Patent Troll Targeting Users of Scanners; Wants $1000/Employee
Heck not even just the office scanners, most all-in-one printers that you can get for your house now do this as well.
At this point it's such a generalized feature, that they're basically just targeting the general consumer at this point.
