Wolfenstein: The New Order Launches
WW2 was started by Germans, not by Nazis from space.
How Free-To-Play Is Constricting Mobile Games
"Recent data shows 20 percent of mobile games get opened once and never again." I was trying to understand what these numbers mean but I failed. What's your point? If the cost of game is zero then anyone can try it, just like anyone could install demo version or just watch gameplay on youtube. While I agree that in-app purchases can destroy games (and perfect example is Dungeon Keeper) - I don't see any logical conclusion in your numbers.
iPad Fever Is Officially Cooling
Long article about poor iPad sales and no single word about Android.
Brendan Eich Steps Down As Mozilla CEO
Welcome in the 2014 - the Freedom of Speech is dead.
I use Mozilla since its first days, when Phoenix (later Firefox) was only usable browser on Linux.
I was always trying to support it, now it's just another evil company, just like Microsoft of Apple.
Google and Samsung Sign Global Patent Deal
What about Asus and others? If the deal is against Apple then it should be between everyone not just Samsung and Google.
Is Computer Science Education Racist and Sexist?
I just wonder how big the level of stupidity left wing must reach before it will be recognized by the majority of society. Or at least my majority of slashdot readers.
Let's go to the next level. Let's see how many females play first person shooter games. Maybe it's time to ban all these games because they are so sexist.
Or maybe someone should just call bullshit a bullshit.
Network Scientists Discover the 'Dark Corners' of the Internet
Why people never read the article and instead comment title/description? This article is not about warez and pron but about network theory.

Make Your Own Invisibility Cloak With a 3D Printer
You can see him through the holes. It works for radar not for human eyes.
"Dramatic Decline" Warning For Plants and Animals
All this stuff is a lie. You believe in "global warming" religion, even if you consider youself as an atheist.
Could you explain after so many years what was the reason to give Nobel Prize for Al Gore? BTW Could you also explain what was the reason to give Nobel Prize for Obama?
Microsoft's Most Profitable Mobile Operating System: Android

Weird Geological Features Spied On Mars

Noodle Robots Replacing Workers In Chinese Restaurants
The idea that 100% employement is not needed and that people can enjoy life and have fun instead working is in fact communism. Communism always look good on posters and in books, but in reality it killed lots of people in many different ways (more than nazism or religions). And it still looks good for newcomers.
If you give all work to robots and let people do nothing, then after some time, some people realize that they need more. More stuff, more space, more resources. The obvious result will war. And war never changes.
Is Bitcoin Mining a Real-World Environmental Problem?
In my humble opinion this article is bulls**t and it should not be on front page of Slashdot. Why should anyone care how much time/energy someone uses on his own computer? Bitcoin bubble bursts, so journalist must create some brain-dead articles about it, but why you post in on Slashdot???
DOS Emulation Arrives For the Raspberry Pi
My first PC was 386 DX 40Mhz, Duke Nukem required much stronger hardware.
However I think it's a bad idea to use DOS emulation for games like Duke or Doom because they are open source and you can play native builds on Linux.
The Pirate Bay Claims It Is Now Hosting From North Korea
This is probably hoax
TPB now hosted in North Korea
user on redit shows that it's probably a fake:
