What To Do About an Asteroid That Has a 1 In 625 Chance of Hitting Us In 2040?
Their wording is correct. With more data there is approximation 624 in 625 odds that the likelihood of impact will be reduced. I actually really liked his wording because it didn't try to sensationalize the problem by making it sound like we will find out if there is an impact 2013, which would push many people to think the problem is more of a 50/50 odds. The general media leverage this flaw in human thinking frequently.
Senator Introduces Bill To Stop Warrantless GPS Tracking
One way to solve this that seems logical to me is if they can use gps tracking on me without a warrant then I should be able to do the same to them. I'm pretty sure I can't put tracking devices on cop cars so they shouldn't be allowed to do that to my car. The same rule applies to UAVs, alternate imaging techniques, and other new technologies. It is hard to keep laws up to date with the pace of technology so having a guiding principle like allowing law enforcement/government to do no more without a warrant than civilians can seems like a fair solution. I know there needs to be a few exceptions like detaining a person, but those few exceptions won't change with technology.

Microsoft To Open Retail Stores
This is a great idea! I am so sure it will be successful that you should get started on the second phase right away. Everybody will want to come to your stores so you need to stop diluting your brand by selling it via other distribution methods. You should immediately stop bundling your software with prebuilt computers from manufacturers like Dell. Also immediately remove your product from online stores. Having people come into your stores will form a strong community.
I was just talking to some IT Admins yesterday and they were complaining how the 1000 licenses of Windows they just bought were just an electric piece of paper. They really wanted to go to a physical store with physical shopping cards and put a 1000 boxes in that cart. They thought that would be much more satisfying that just a number on a piece of paper.

WV Voters Say Machines Are Switching Votes
These machines are not "switching votes". They're just not.
You sound pretty sure about this, but remember that according to your own belief you only think that you're right.
When asked if she is sure she touched the box for Rockefeller, she said, 'I'm absolutely positive.'" Yeah, just like a lot of users are "absolutely positive" that they did the right thing. No, they THINK they did the right thing. That's the only thing they are "absolutely positive" of.
