Valve Announces Hardware Beta Test For 'Steam Machine'
I don't mind door locks as long as they let me into my house when I want, let me into my friends' houses when they allow me, and prevent other people from getting into my house when I do not allow them.
And maybe the world would be a better place if more people invited each other into their homes, but that doesn't necessarily mean we should get rid of locks.
Fracked Shale Could Sequester Carbon Dioxide
It's serious business when you say every number 2 times. Two TIMES.

Finance Firm Bloomberg Goes In For $80,000 On Ubuntu Edge Project
Great idea! More companies should take advantage of this free publicity. Like about 290 more companies.
America's First Eco-City: Doomed From the Start
I could see a possibility where you can make that kind of ruling if the members of that community unanimously vote for it. That way a new starting town would be able to get such a law passed, but a larger community would have a much harder time passing such an ordinance. Come to think of it though, it seems like that would have the potential to cause hate and discrimination, e.g. there are few people in the town that disagree, so instead of either trying to convince them or giving up, the community attempts to grief them into moving.
Netflix Ditches Silverlight With HTML5 Support In IE11
Pirates don't rip streaming media but Blurry discs or something of higher quality.
If it's a blurry disc, wouldn't it be lower quality? *badum tish*

Hackers Spawn Web Supercomputer On Way To Chess World Record
I think you've missed the idea.
The criminal activity isn't mining bitcoins on someone else's machine, it's putting your code on someone else's website without their consent. It's not a new type of criminal activity, just a new incentive to do it.
Congress Demands Answers From Google Over Google Glass Privacy Concerns
When using Google Glass, is it true that this product would be able to use Facial Recognition Technology to unveil personal information about whomever and even some inanimate objects that the user is viewing? Would a user be able to request such information? Can a non-user or human subject opt out of this collection of personal data? If so, how? If not, why not?
Substitute "google glass" with "United States Law Enforcement" and you begin to see how fucking hypocritical this entire endeavor is

Would a user be able to request such information? Can a non-user or human subject opt out of this collection of personal data? If so, how? If not, why not?
Am I doing it right? And if the united states law enforcement uses google glass, does it cause meta-problems?
Software Evolution Storylines, Inspired By XKCD
I'm so glad we finally moved to a standardized sense of humor system so that we'll all think the same things are funny and no longer have awkward moments of only certain people laughing at certain things. I'm especially looking forward to the consolidation of the comedian market as we remove the unnecessary comics and just zone in to the one that tells the jokes that are in keeping with our collective sense of humor.
Why Are We Losing Vertical Pixels?
I'm sure that this will lead to more complaining, but if you want the benefit of buying whatever you like online but can't wait a week or two to get it shipped, you could go to your local university or office building. Seems EVERYONE is throwing away old CRTs that didn't even go bad, just got replaced with LCDs. Your free one week replacements might be a little crappy and annoying, but it's worth every penny.
Criminals Steal House Thanks To Hacked Email
more appropriate than redundant would be recursive.... though somehow doubt such a mod would make it into slashdot.
Google Becomes Evil, the Video
What a lame video. It takes what google is currently doing beyond the extreme, and then extrapolates that obviously there's a deal with the devil and that in the future, google will fly around the earth collecting data while we protest... Every single bit of that is ridiculous. Even if google was trying (or just inadvertently succeeding) to be evil, their entire power comes from ad revenue. So people wouldn't be on the streets waving signs. They'd be ignoring google completely. If you want to know what real evil is, take Hitler. And even HE would have had no power if the Germans decided he was evil and crazy and decided not to listen to him.
75% Use Same Password For Social Media & Email
I don't think that trademarks have grown so powerful as to allow you to have sex with whomever uses your trademark... I could be behind the times though.
The Hidden Security Risk of Geotags
One time, this guy handed me a picture of him, he said,"Here's a picture of me when I was younger." Every picture is of you when you were younger. "Here's a picture of me when I'm older." "You son-of-a-bitch! How'd you pull that off? Lemme see that camera... what's it look like? "
Monetizing Free-To-Play Gaming Models
Apparently you are among those masses. What odies was trying to do is reinforce the first comment. Another AC commented back with a message of astonishment and odies was giving further detail for that confused poster. Likely odies assumed that his state of astonishment was due to thinking that Asian connections are slow as that Someone in the USA would experience a large amount of latency between their computer and one in an Asian country.
Cambered Tires Can Improve Fuel Economy
That's a pretty good analogy but I'm not sure I get it. Could you maybe make it a car analogy?... oh wait...
Cambered Tires Can Improve Fuel Economy
I'm just imagining a boy with a dog running out in front of you along the railroad tracks. Or even more absurd, a train flying out in front of you in the middle of the suburbs with no tracks in sight.
Why do I suddenly feel like watching back to the future?...
Narco-Blogger Beats Mexico Drug War News Blackout
I think you're reading far too much into what I said. You're making everything black and white. All that I said is that if you are an average citizen with no lawmaking capabilities, you do have the ability to not support the cartels. I'm not saying it's the best way. I'm not saying it's the only way. But it is a way.
Also saying that a plant may have some medical use in the future as an argument as to why you should be able to recreationally use it is kind of flawed.
'Wi-Fi Illness' Spreads To Ontario Public Schools
That honestly doesn't surprise me one bit. There were a few lectures that I could never stay awake in even if I had gotten plenty of rest.
