Indian Brick-and-Mortar Retailers Snub Android One Phones
Indian customers are also very class conscious, they would eschew a cheaper product merely because their servant maids can afford them.
Is "class-conscious" some new euphemism for "assholes" that I haven't previously been aware of?
It depends. Is "I haven't previously been aware of" a new euphemism for "I have my head shoved so far up my ass that I've never noticed how societies work"? Because there is nothing new about this behavior anyplace. People were assholes about class indicators long ago, they are assholes about class indicators now, and they will be assholes about class indicators in the future.
CERN May Not Have Discovered Higgs Boson After All
Like it or not, the term "God particle" was created by Leon M. Lederman for a book he wrote. Now, Dr. Lederman has won the Nobel Prize for Physics, the Wolf Prize in Physics, and the National Medal of Science. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that given a choice between you and him...well, he's the one who is right.
However, to be fair, once you've won your Nobel Prize, I'll start paying attention to your opinions compared to his.
CERN May Not Have Discovered Higgs Boson After All
And yet, there are zebras.
On July 4, 2012, CERN director general Rolf Heuer announced that his team had detected âoea particle consistent with the Higgs boson,â and that the discovery was confirmed by two separate experiments (ATLAS and CMS). However, Heuer noted that additional data was required to confirm that it was, in fact, the so-called "God particle."
The article basically says we've found something new, but by running some more tests at CERN, we can pin it down better. Which, as we can see from the quote, is also the belief of the people who made the discovery.
Nobody is saying the particle isn't "Higgs-like", or that it's not a major discovery, or even that we're misunderstanding its role. But, and it's an important but, we've never pinned it down exactly. Which every article I've ever read in the last couple of years has said. Using Wikipedia (dangerous, I know), it uses "tentatively confirmed" for a couple of test and notes values are slightly off the prediction for branching levels. (A term that I gladly admit to knowing nothing about, but if it's being mentioned, I would think it must be important for the verification)
BitHammer, the BitTorrent Banhammer
Yes, clearly the two wrong acts aren't equivalent. The torrent user is just an inconsiderate asshole while this dude is an outright malicious asshole.
But can you do it as a car analogy?
The first guy is the kind of idiot who pulls into an intersection on a yellow light when there's not enough room to pull completely through. The second guy's a BMW owner.

They're looking for cleared contractors to set up private clouds in their facilities.
Possible Reason Behind Version Hop to Windows 10: Compatibility
The problem isn't making sure code that worked on Windows 95 still works. It's code that wouldn't run in the DOS code tree, but will still run in the NT tree, and has code that prevents trying to run it on older systems...and, instead of checking for Windows_NT and proceeding, checked for Windows_9* and stopped.
And, for the record, on a Windows 7 box, the OS environment variable is still "Windows_NT". Somebody out there must have a 95 (or 98) box still running that could check if it shows "Windows_95". ("echo %OS%", but if you've still got a box that old, you knew that.)
David Cameron Says Brits Should Be Taught Imperial Measures
Water freezes at zero and boils at one hundred.
You mean, water freezes at 0C and boils at 94C. (Well, technically, it freezes at 0.01C, but who's counting.)
It's hard to get simpler than assuming everyone lives at sea level. It's just not very accurate.
Microsoft's Asimov System To Monitor Users' Machines In Real Time

Facebook To Start Testing Internet-Beaming Drones In 2015
From the article:
Maguire, in conversation with Mashable CEO Pete Cashmore, likened the vehicles to planes rather than drones, a word that does carry some negative connotations.
Drone means there's no pilot; they take surplus/retired conventional planes, such as a
Phantom and turn them into a, yes, drone. (And stick a Q in front of the designation so it's now a QF-4,)
