top Steve Jobs Reincarnated As a Warrior-Philosopher, Thai Group Says
Those Buddhists are in trouble now. I have it on good authority that Apple has patented the iReincarnation app. They are going to have the same fate as Samsung in the next American trial!

top To me, lotteries represent ...
I may only have a 1 in 28,633,528 chance of having a winning ticket, but really it's the only realistic chance I'll ever have to get $50 million.
Anyway I can afford to occasionally gamble the $5 for the minuscule chance of that $50 million.
If those are the odds, and a game cost $5, and you could win over $500M, then buying a lottery ticket starts to make statistical sense. I don't know anything about the lottery in question though... are those the actual odds or just a number you made up for illustrative purposes?
Those odds are for the Lotto MAX in Canada I believe. Top prize is capped at $50M with any extra being more $1M draws.
top Downloads of DoS Attack Tool LOIC Spike
But, downloading LOIC is not a crime (Yet). Therefore why would Sourceforge hand over the IP requests if asked?
top Drone Guides Fuel Shipment to Alaskan Town
I just wonder why someone would be willing to live in a place that is by all measures a risky place to establish a life. Why? When I think of the polar bear, the weather, the isolation and so on, I fail to see the reason why I would want to live there. Man is surely intriguing.
The same could be said for those living in Tornado Alley. People are weird, and they'll live anywhere on this planet.
top Taliban Seizes and Burns PCs, Cell Phones To Stop Obscenity
Who in the world would want to live under and be governed by these Neanderthals?
(I realize that this is an insult to true Neanderthals.)
The Taliban rule with guns. He with the most guns sets the laws.
top Ubisoft Blames Piracy For Non-Release of PC Game
Steam also can act as a publisher. The game companies can just use steam to patch their games. You can then run the game from the install directory. No DRM needed.
top Snow Falls On the Most Arid Desert On Earth
Also, what about the animals that don't like the "hot zones" as much as us primates do?
It's called extinction.
top Tracking Bracelets for Autistic Kids and Senior Citizens
Guardians are supposed to check batteries and devices every week.
That there makes it unlikely to work. People will check these thing initially and then after a few months they won't check as often. Especially if there haven't been any problems.
top Glasses Purge 3rd D From Films
Because your friends don't want to see the 'lame' 2D version. Besides, this is
/.. WE'd just download the 3D version to watch on our 2D monitors,
top An App That Turns Any Drawing Into a Dress
I only go to the mall because it has the only bookstore in town. I enjoy browsing books, rather then look for all the newest releases on Amazon.
top Playing Around With Tracking Protection In IE9
Getting rid off all the crappy and misleading ads is a plus for IE 9. TFA was vague if it was turned on as default or not. Even if people will have to turn it on, they might realize the benefits.
top 80% of Browsers Found To Be At Risk of Attack
So, you got to install a plug-in to check if your other plug-ins are secure. Maybe the browsercheck plug-in isn't secure.
People need to update their software for security. That's not news.
top DSL Installation Fail
Sure, blame the customer. Maybe the customer had an installation date sent some time in advance.
The blame lies with Qwest Technicians. If the snow is too deep to do a good job, it's better to explain to the customer and reschedule.
top Apple Support Company Sues Customer For Complaint
You don't even read the stories you post, do you?
The company is called System Graph.
TFA calls it Stemgraph too. Even with a link to the company at systemgraph.gr
Maybe Stemgraph is the english translation?
top Backscatter X-Ray Machines Easily Fooled
This obviously means that we are going to need better technology. We'll need technology that will be able to give us a full color representation of your completely nude body, but only if you're a hot chick. - Your Friendly local TSA Agent
Bah, There's nothing for the female TSA Agents. I suggest only hot guys get scanned. I don't think slashdotters need apply.
top WikiLeaks Under Denial of Service Attack
Anyone who wants the US government to look bad? Everyone is going to assume they are behind it anyways
top Estonian Economist Suggests Abandoning Cash
That's why you buy a bicycle and make the customer pedal really fast to generate electricity. Too bad I live in North America and most of the adults here would probably pass out trying to cycle.
top Web-Users Fall For Fake Anti-Virus Scams
So? Does the fact that the user made a mistake mean that this is not a problem worthy of attention? We need to find ways to make it easier to distinguish spyware that steals your personal information for criminal gangs from the legitimate software that steals your personal information for big businesses.
top Web-Users Fall For Fake Anti-Virus Scams
Not really. Most people know they need an Anti-virus scanner, so if a website tells them they can download one for a small fee, they will. It's no different with auto repair shops. If people don't know enough about the subject, they are usually ripped off. The AV scams are simply harder to stop, because most of them aren't locally.
top UK Terror Chief Blocked From Boarding Aircraft
She missed a glorious opportunity to praise the airport security for her unplanned security check. It is a good thing that British Security Officers check all people, even the Security Minister.
