Robots Enter Fukushima Reactor Building
With all the stories of robots invented by Japanese over time, I am surprised they weren't doing this on day 2 after the event.
The problem wasn't a lack of robots, it was a lack of angsty teenagers to pilot them.

If the hookers all looked like a judge's wife, I'd want a refund.
Avatar, Has Sci-fi Found Its Heaven's Gate?
"No one wants to see tall blue Elvish Ewoks."
For a moment there I read this comment as "No one wants to see tall blue Elvis Ewoks", and I was about to argue most vehemently that that's exactly what I do want to see in a movie.

Alaskan Blob Is an Algae Bloom

Obama Picks Net Neutrality Backer As FCC Chief
Thanks to recent efforts by the RIAA/MPAA, the threat now isn't just that ISP's will throttle P2P, it's that they will outright BLOCK it (and any sites related to it). Their counterpart in the UK has already succeeded in this effort with most of their ISP's...
No they haven't. I don't know of a single UK ISP that blocks BitTorrent (although thottling is commonplace, and not just on P2P traffic): http://azureuswiki.com/index.php/Bad_ISPs#United_Kingdom

Australia To Block BitTorrent
Despite the article headline here, it appears that the plan is to filter certain items of "objectionable" content, rather than outright block peer-to-peer traffic.
Of course, this doesn't make the entire concept of filtering that is currently going on in Australia any less ridiculous (particular in terms of P2P and BitTorrent), but we might as well at least discuss what they're doing in the correct terms.
