Cab Hailing Service Uber Collected Just $9M of Fares During 15 Months In Boston

Trader Pleads Guilty To Illegal Purchase of Nearly $1B In Apple Stock
"which ultimately led to the demise of the financial services firm he worked for."
The company went bankrupt, which is as much as a company can be punished. Something this negligent requires punishment on both the individual and the company -- there just aren't enough consequences a company can impose on their employees beyond firing them to prevent something like this.

DHS X-ray Car Scanners Now At Border Crossings
The average energy of the X-ray beam used is three times that used in a CT scan
This assumes professional calibration! This should read "The average energy of the X-ray beam when calibrated by an apathetic TSA employee is a hell of a lot more than three times that used in a CT scan calibrated by a hospital technician"
Apple Faces Temporary iPhone, iPad Ban In Germany
Ah, the "but mooom, he started it!". I get it.
"Yes Johnny, but you're supposed to come tell us immediately, not hit him"
"Yes Google, but you're supposed to explore all the wonderful alternatives we have to a defunct patent system. Not write legal briefs and submit them to a judge"?

RIM Does Not Want PlayBook Devs, Complains One Potential Developer
I've made an app using the Adobe Flex Builder Burrito Blackberry sdk and thought it was great. Better than iOS even. Essentially, his argument boils down to saying "they made me use VMWare for a virtual machine and I'm an idiot who can't differentiate the free VMWare Player that I'm given a download link to on the blackberry site from VMWare Workstation, which I'd need to use a trial version of."
I will gladly have to click three separate download links (oh no!) in order to get a more exact desktop emulation experience than be stuck with an emulator that just shows the target device screen resolution and no other changes. Even on Android Emulator I had an issue once where the emulator said everything was great and then running on the device, key information was placed off-screen. Dealing with that was far worse than having to click download 3 times.
This guy should be thankful he's never had to develop for Nokia OVI store. As for Blackberry, they can probably be thankful not to have to deal with this guy anymore.

New RTS Based on DotA Offers Native Linux Client
Like DotA was a mod to Warcraft III, Heroes of Newerth is a mod to Savage 2, which is already available/playable on Linux and a great game. So, there's at least some evidence this is likely to be good.

EU Could Force Bundling Firefox With Windows
By forcing the users to make a choice, it allows Opera to attempt to sway users to choose them.
They already have to pick between IE and Telnet:80 . Exactly how many options does Microsoft have to provide for people to sort through before they magically decide they want to download Opera?
Obama Keeps His Blackberry (And Gets a Sectera)
They are equal branches of government.
The constitution most definitely does not say all branches are equal. The Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers both put the judicial branch as weaker than the other two. Granted to your point, the President was never intended to be more powerful than the Congress; it's no accident that if 76% of the congress agreed to it, they'd have the legal authority to abolish both the presidency and the supreme court and install cowboy neal as dictator for life.
