Should Microsoft Be Required To Extend Support For Windows XP?
You forget Windows isn't designed to run Mission-critical software. Microsoft even makes a point of it. Linux is, after all NASA uses it in the Space Station and id say that's pretty darn critical.
Continued Rise In Autism Diagnoses Puzzles Researchers, Galvanizes Advocates
They don't care either. My Aunt went to the Hospital with dizziness, the last time she went they thought it may be a Stroke and treated her for it. This time a different Doctor was there and was more concerned with the Television show he was watching and sent her home without treatment. I guess the Television show was more important, perhaps he should of chosen a different profession if he doesn't have an interest in doing his Job.
I myself have been suffering from Heart related issues for quite a many years and all the Doctors seem more concerned about the how nice the Weather is outside. What America needs is a swift kick in the Medical Profession area. And Students need to choose Jobs they actually WANT to participate in.

Mozilla Scraps Firefox For Windows 8, Citing Low Adoption of Metro
Unlike you Windows guys, we actually care enough to compile our own. As long as Firefox is Open Source, what you want will never happen. Sorry....and FYI Linux as a whole has more of an Install base than W8 and rapidly rising. So quit yer complainin' and move to a real OS that doesn't have an NSA backdoor. ktnkbye
The Spy In Our Living Room
SNES, PS1, Gamecube etc. Or roll your own with Linux. Nobody is forcing anyone to buy these devices. Free Will, it's a bitch.
Free (Gratis) Version of Windows Could Be a Reality Soon
You're kidding right?. Microsoft worked out a deal already with the NSA to get out of the last anti-trust lawsuit. Any lawsuits would be dismissed.
Blizzard To Sell Level 90 WoW Characters For $60
Leveling was the best part of the game for me. Once I hit max level I rerolled, the adventure stops at max level for me. Of course now they got everybody phased into zones, you can't even complete quests anymore because nobody groups. There's always a huge line waiting for the quest-giver. I wouldn't mind playing again if I could have my wide-open, empty space back again. =p
Better yet, add bots and make a solo, single-player version of WoW available. I'd definitely buy it if it worked in Wine.
Mathematician: Is Our Universe a Simulation?
So if none of this is real, let's just ignore Laws and Morals and start doing whatever we want, see if that crashes the program. Why not all band together and send a message to the Simulation to stop killing our Simulated Children with Cancer and the like.
Or maybe this guy has watched the Matrix too many times...

Ask Slashdot: How Would You Secure Your Parents' PC?
My mother is 60 years old, I switched my family to Xubuntu a few months after I switched in October 2012. To say that older people are set in their ways and would much rather use Windows is silly. My family used Windows as long as I have, about 15 years, and didn't have a problem adjusting. In fact, once 7 hit the market with the new taskbar and the 8 with it's radical changes; you're going to have to learn a new OS anyway so why not go to one that's more secure and doesn't suffer all the flaws that Windows has. Not to mention my family doesn't have to go through the hassle of installing drivers on Linux, it's truly Plug and Play.
Fact of the matter is this: My 60 year old computer illiterate mother, two brothers, my 59 year old friend across town and myself have no issues using Linux. If you do, you're doing it wrong.
No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service — and No Google Glass, Either
It's funny because I think the same thing about "Smart" Phone users; If only the users were as Smart as their Tech. We've all forgot the needs vs the wants of life. Phones, Cameras etc are all wants while food, water and shelter are needs. Society has erroneously turned Phones into a need and a selfless act it was without regard to others around them and their expectation of not being harassed by man-made digital nonsense.
The thing is, we have integrated these devices so deep into out lives to which our Brains are losing functionality. We have become accustom to this and the results of the future will have grave consequences for Humans. All it takes is one War between two countries with Tech to disable our electronic life and only at that time will we realize our mistakes.
No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service — and No Google Glass, Either
The simple fix is separate areas for people with phones and Google glasses and a different area where people want to be left alone without fear of being recorded digitally harassed.

Toyota Announces Plans For Fuel Cell Car By 2015
You can't predict what's going to happen 10 years from now any more than you can predict a 10,000 year future. Weather reporters can't even get tomorrows weather accurate, so what makes you so sure?. Our battery future is now, in 10 years we may have some advancements that rival battery power. The resources of Earth are not infinite, whatever the future holds it has to be renewable or bust.
Blue Light of Death Plagues PlayStation 4
Remember back when a console just worked? SNES, NES, PS1 etc. They really DON'T make them like they use to. No, dirty contacts on the SNES/NES don't count, that was user error for not keeping it clean and it was a simple fix that every child knew about; just blow on it.
Try blowing on those pretty lights, see how well that works.
Dell's New Sputnik 3 Mates Touchscreen With Ubuntu
Windows found it's place in a landfill back in October 2012 when I switched to Linux. So yes, it has it's place. Also, most companies try selling Linux laptops on severely underpowered hardware and then they complain it doesn't sell. But really, it doesn't matter what Dell does, they are old news just like every other PC maker that sells Windows only hardware; which is why Microsoft has a future problem.

EFF Says Mark Shuttleworth Is Wrong About Trademark
Believe it or not, there is a Health Insurance company in my area called Apple Care. There is also a Meat processing company with a logo that's strikingly similar in every way, to AMD's Logo. I'm betting neither Apple or AMD know of this or, most likely, the many more like this.
