Study Finds Link Between Artificial Sweeteners and Glucose Intolerance
Also, never mind sugar, have these rocket scientists decided whether or not salt is bad for you yet?
Microsoft Killing Off Windows Phone Brand Name In Favor of Just Windows
That was certainly Steve Ballmer's approach.
WD Announces 8TB, 10TB Helium Hard Drives
I'm also curious how they keep the helium locked up in the drive housing.
Hydrogen is more reactive, and causes some metals to become brittle. Not sure if either of these would be a problem in hard drive applications, though. Presumably the manufacturers have done their homework.
How Scientific Consensus Has Gotten a Bad Reputation
We are guided by consensus a thousand ways every single day, but it's only climate science where people seem to get bent out of shape.
Because trillions of dollars' worth of economic rewiring is being called for on the basis of climate science.
An environmentally-friendly scientist once said that "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof." I've never been a fan of that because at the end of the day, "extraordinary" is just somebody's value judgement. But when objectively extraordinary demands are being made, then it seems like a good time to start demanding extraordinary certainty. The language of consensus is not sufficient, because throughout history there are far too many instances of "97% of scientists" agreeing on things that turned out to be completely wrong.
Some Core I7 5960X + X99 Motherboards Mysteriously Burning Up
The real problem would have been inadequate bypassing at the FPGA. From the point of view of high-speed logic, power comes from capacitors, not voltage regulators.
US Government Fights To Not Explain No-Fly List Selection Process
And this doesn't even get into the mysterious ability of senior NSA officials in the Obama administration to lie to Congress with no consequences whatsoever.
Lie about playing baseball on steroids, and you're in a world of shit. Lie about grave Constitutional matters, and you're in good company.
Major Delays, Revamped Beta For Credit-Card Consolidating Gadget Coin
I still don't see the problem at hand. Is it so inconvenient to carry a few different credit cards that it's worth inventing some Rube Goldberg contraption to copy them onto one device?
Swedish Dad Takes Gamer Kids To Warzone
Would you do it if they were reading comic books about war?
If the US DoD were spending enormous amounts of money developing those comic books with the express purpose of making war look as glamorous and consequence-free as possible, then yes, I would still let my kids read them, because I disagree with intellectual censorship in any form, at any age. But you can bet I'd talk with them about what they were reading, who wrote it, and why they might have written it.
Swedish Dad Takes Gamer Kids To Warzone
It's a grayer area than that. Blasting Nazis on Mars or whatever was one thing, but the US Department of Defense now throws millions of dollars at game developers, tasking them with making war look like just another extreme sport.
IMHO (and in the opinion of most credible researchers) even these games are not directly psychologically damaging to young people. But I don't like the message they are engineered to send. It sounds like this father has found a great way to give his kids an inside look at the game they're really being trained to play.
CIA Director Brennan Admits He Was Lying: CIA Really Did Spy On Congress
That's pre-9/11 talk, citizen. Now pick up that can!
Amazon's eBook Math
Everyone else is getting contracts which require them to sign away their works forever, sign away any future works in the same genre, sign away all electronic rights, etc... for a $5K advance on a one or two book contract.
Exactly. Somehow, those predatory publisher contracts never come up in these threads about how evil Amazon is.
The Hobbit: the Battle of Five Armies Trailer Released
And the barrel riding was supposed to be a leisurely ride down the river
Yeeeeah, we'll get right on that. Everyone from the studio execs to the Oscar committee will positively leap with glee when we release our new $200,000,000 holiday-season spectacular, THE HOBBIT, PART II: A LEISURELY RIDE DOWN THE RIVER.
Pro tip: Don't quit your day job to move to Hollywood.
Why Are the World's Scientists Continuing To Take Chances With Smallpox?
"Why are scientists continuing to take chances with uranium?"
"Why are scientists continuing to take chances with high voltage?"
"Why are scientists continuing to take chances with dimethyl mercury?"
Also, there's no reason to obsess over the presence of a few virus particles in a jar on a shelf somewhere, if we have the source code in the form of its gene sequence. In that case we'll be able to resynthesize the virus at our leisure, at some point in the not-too-distant future.
And if we don't already have the gene sequence in hand, well, that's a problem in itself.
The Last Three Months Were the Hottest Quarter On Record
Not too familiar with Einstein's career and the massive amount of "consensus"-based opposition he had to deal with, I take it.
White House Punts On Petition To Allow Tesla Direct Sales
When you own the CIA, you're a little bit more responsible than the people in Congress who don't know anything about the supposed "threat" but what they're told.

Disappointed Woz Sells His "Worthless" Galaxy Gear Watch
Probably so. Mahatma Gandhi advocated fighting the Nazis with a one-two knockout punch of surrender and mass suicide. Mother Theresa was a galactic douche with PR talents that you might expect from the love child of Oprah Winfrey and Gandalf. And FDR, well, about the best you can say about FDR is that he made World War II look like a lucky break for the US economy.
Woz? Um, well, I heard he was caught doing 115 MPH in a Prius. That's about the only bad thing anyone has ever said about him. Personally, I would have given him a trophy rather than a ticket, but that's probably why I'm not a cop.
Nathan Myhrvold's Recipe For a Better Oven
Is that the sequel to "Stephen Wolfram Is a Big Fat Idiot"?
