Sharks Seen Swimming Down Australian Streets

Bob54321 Land sharks! (210 comments)

They must be a new type of shark given that the land has been relatively dry for the last five days or so. Either that, or Slashdot is posting things days after they occur... Nah - new type of shark is bound to be the explanation!

GNOME 3 Delayed Until September 2010

Bob54321 Re:Not going to comment about the actual product.. (419 comments)

My first reaction when I saw this news was that it was delayed specifically for the Ubuntu LTS release. Probably just a coincidence though, but everybody likes a good conspiracy theory.

Evolution's Path May Lead To Shorter, Heavier Women

Bob54321 Re:Where is the evolution? (411 comments)

100,000 Californians To Be Gene Sequenced

Bob54321 Family histroy more accurate (176 comments)

I do not think that anyone has pointed out that even with samples sizes that big, we can only figure out the genetic architecture of complex disease to an extent that makes it no better than family history for predicting disease. In fact, I hazard it will still be an order of magnitude worse. Obviously, the researchers did not point that out to the health insurance companies paying for it because I am sure that they will still find many interesting things.

Chinese Clinic Uses DNA Tests To Predict Kids' Talents

Bob54321 Unlikely... (98 comments)

We do not know enough (or anything for the sceptics...) about the actual genes that control these traits, so I doubt this test is any more efficient than just examining the parents phenotype and predicting based on that. In fact, given they are stupid enough to think they can predict better, they probably are doing worse...

Qt Becomes LGPL

Bob54321 Re:Strategy fail (828 comments)

Where is the music player that beats Amarok?

Unfortunately neither Banshee nor Rhythmbox can beat this one. Hopefully, competition will push them to become better!

Exaile? Maybe not now Amarok2 is out.
