Defendant Ordered To Decrypt Laptop Claims She Had Forgotten Password
If you just told them you don't remember shouldn't they have to offer proof you are lying?
Couldn't they now use this thread to show your lying?
Could Crowd-Sourced Direct Democracy Work?
Even if we posit an ideal Libertarian utopia, I don't know what to do about interstate grazing rights, do you?
I know what to do - abstain.
One Week: No Mouse, Just Keyboard
I would like to see a window environment that offers command mode like vim.
For example, all controls in currently focused window should have a line number faintly visible (one number per line for text boxes with multiple lines). You can highlight change focus to a particular control like changing to a line in vim: `:12`
Tightly packed stuff such as buttons on a tool bar might only one number, with decimal values for the things inside it (or a number each, whatever). You would only need to show the number every 8 buttons or something, people can count the sequence between.
ctrl+w, hjlk for window selection... etc
And while we're at it, repurpose that useless scroll-lock key to toggle to vim mode, so power users can quickly turn it on when they sit down at any computer.
Call Interception Demonstrated On New Cisco Phones
Oh, that explains how Skype was worth $8.5 billion.
Is Software Driving a Falling Demand For Brains?
Yes, computers can replace people for some jobs, they may do the task better in addition to being cheaper.
This is a great thing, as it frees these people to take on more complex tasks and advance the development of humanity.
However, these more complex tasks do demand brains - likely even more so.
CA's First Molten Salt Energy Plant Approved
Perhaps the ~800K is the temperature in the storage tower, so it was higher when it was melted.
Digital Dashboard Device Detects Driver Drowsiness
But the current title is cool because it does it without adding overly superfluous words.
Largest Genome Ever
Its a possibility, but you can shield radiation in other ways. Resilliance and high oxygen production would be more important. Ideally, breed plants for all of these things (and start ASAP).
Fun To Be Had With a 10-Foot Satellite Dish?
I was thinking a giant yo-yo.
Alien Swarm Can Be Played As a Terrifying FPS
They put stuff like that (and first person controls, etc) into the engine, not the game.
It just comes downstream to the games, as it should.
Falsehoods Programmers Believe About Names
In that case I could name my first born child the Mandelbrot set. Not "Mandelbrot" the string, not the equation, but actually use the resulting plot as a character.
Good luck pronouncing it, or writing it accurately.
Researchers Build Evolving Brain Computer?
What is 'two'? 10 states is enough for everybody.
Students Failing Because of Poor Grammar
Appreciation of grammar, spelling, context, and connotation comes from reading books.
People read less with movies, games, youtube, etc. available to fill their time.
Australian Govt. Proposes Internet "Panic Button" For Kids
Psystar Crushed In Court
I remember overhearing someone at Uni bragging about their new Mac book.
"It only cost $1500, and it doesn't get viruses because its a Mac. And I put windows on it so I can run everything."
I was just sitting there laughing harder at each point. I considered explaining to him the stupidity here, but decided it would be a waste of time.
Vermont City Almost Encased In a 1-Mile Dome
Build Underground Cities.
More constant temperature, heaps of extra space. If you begin deep enough you might be able to commence construction with the existing city above.
Although a dome might be easier at first, when they're not prepared to rebuild everything below. Still, I think we'll get there eventually.
Amazon Patents Changing Authors' Words
Also IBM patented it for emails some time ago:

Hopefully it'll be similar to site: or url:
So you only get results on twitter if you search using:
And normal searches don't include twitter results at all.
