Simple industrial ( mining ) accident. I wonder of they have their own version of OSHA.
And by OSHA, you mean MSHA.
Cops Say NDA Kept Them from Notifying Courts About Cell Phone Tracking Gadget
Only if you're in Law Enforcement, in which case the de-facto law seems to be: Do whatever you want, but be sure to have at least a flimsy excuse ready if you get caught. Otherwise we may have to sentence you to a few months paid vacation to think about what you've done.
An unrelated but vivid example of exactly the point you make:
In short, cop lets his K9 partner slowly roast to death in his car while he takes a little vacation. Oh wait, I mean "the dog somehow let herself into the SUV while he was away for the weekend." Totally not his fault, not even a stern finger-waggling was given.
I feel like I should be outraged at this wiretapping article, but I find I'm merely unsurprised.
"Microsoft Killed My Pappy"
'I wonder if I can swap out Chrome from Chrome OS or Mobile Safari in iOS.'
A more relevant comparison would've been, can you eliminate Paypal from eBay?
Dogs' Brains Have Human-like "Voice Area"
Everyone "knows" animals, whether what they "know" is that animals are dumb, instinct-driven automatons or intelligent, emotional beings. Rigorous, unbiased research is good for providing a baseline of information with better reliability than "just knowing." After all, assuming that animals share no emotional or cognitive parallels with humans can be just as error-prone as assuming that they're "just like us."
When you have a really smart one for a decade it's like having a furry kid in the family.
And then shortly after a decade they go and die on you. Really inconsiderate of them.

Superbowl Means Time For Spy Cams, Hazmat Squads and Bomb-Sniffing Dogs
No no no, the previous prez said it quite plainly. It's tourists who are the problem.
AMC Theaters Allegedly Calls FBI to Interrogate a Google Glass Wearer
Disliking one side of an issue doesn't mean you have to join an opposing one. It's actually possible and even permissible to be against more than one viewpoint.
If only more people would realize this, Skub wouldn't be such a problem.

Media Player Nightingale Reaches 1.12.1; First Release Since Songbird
I've yet to find a player I like as much as wxMusik, which is abandoned, sadly. It handled every music file format I cared about, the shuffle function was intelligent, and it had a decent library management system and a database--an actual database, which accepted SQL queries if you liked.

It really does. Netcraft confirms it.
US Issues 30-Year Eagle-Killing Permits To Wind Industry
Birds judge distance by parallax. One of the side effects is that something moving fast but at just the right angle to their own flight appears immobile to them. It's more up to chance of vectors intersecting the wrong way than any particular individual being stupider/less fit than another.
I also wouldn't call a car "natural" selection, though I expect you'll continue to do so.
