Linus Torvalds Says Linux 4.0 Could Be Out In Three Years
Sorry Slashdot, I expected a bit better from you.
You must be too old here.
Ask Slashdot: What Would Your 'I've Got To Disappear' Plan Look Like?
Or best give a buddy who looks like you $500 to drive the car to city X and fly back.
Make that a buddy you don't care too much about, just in case.
For work, I communicate mainly through...
It is clear because it is written.
You, sir, have never seen emails from my customers.
Has the Command Line Outstayed Its Welcome?
The command line is great for people that have memorized all the commands, know exactly what they want to do, and can run the operations in their sleep. But for everyone else it's a hinderence.
Look, most people have working legs so all those wheelchair ramps are a hinderance.
Are you saying that people who use the CLI are handicapped??
Japanese Researchers Create A Crab-Based Computer
That is genuinely creepy!
Android Kinect Projector Interface
"A guy who goes by the online handle DDRBoxman decided it would be fun to blow up his Samsung Galaxy Nexus"
The sentence should have stopped there.
How Litigation Only Spurred On P2P File Sharing
Actually, I think it's more like:
You don't have the right to do anything, except what we tell you.
Can Relativity Explain Faster Than Light Particles?
Sorry, I don't believe you are Einstein. Einstein was neither anonymous nor a coward.

Ubuntu Unity: The Great Divider
You can turn off auto-hide, but you have to install CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm). Once you've done that, find the Ubuntu Unity Plugin and set the "Hide Launcher" setting to "Never".
New Dinosaur Species Found In China
I suggest "Chinasaur".
New Tool Blocks Downloads From Malicious Sites
The first version of their tool was called "BLock All Drive-by Download Exploit scRipts" - or BLADDER. For some reason it was not very popular.
Hawking Picks Physics Over God For Big Bang
No. "1" is always 1 in any number system, independent of the base. "10" is always equal to the base. In this case, pi squared would be "100", pi cubed would be "1000" and so on.
Compare with base 10, in which "10" is 10, "100" is 10 squared and "1000" is 10 cubed.
Sex Boosts Brain Growth
I just realized something: No pussy => masturbate => kitten dies => no pussy. It's an evil circle!
BlindType — the Amazing Keyboard of the Future
That was my reaction too, until I RTFA and realized that it is about phones with a touchscreen.
Summaries published by kdawson ought to have some kind of warning label, perhaps something like "Warning: This summary may not reflect the contents of the related article!"
Passwords That Are Simple — and Safe(?)
How about if we change the idea slightly to not only block existing passwords, but also block passwords that are similar to existing passwords?

What Free Antivirus Do You Install On Windows?
It's quite easy to disable the popup, though. Just google for "disable avira popup". You can find a description here. The idea is to disallow the executable avnotify.exe to run.
I prefer my (non-technical) books to be ...
<pedantic>"Over 3000" is just as correct as "over 30000"</pedantic>
Anyway, does it really matter? Who can honestly say that they have read more than 3000 books in their life? Even if you get to be 100 years old, you would still have to read more than one book every two weeks for your entire life!
(I realize of course that the number of books does matter because a greater number of books means a larger selection to choose from.)
