Users Identified Through Typing, Mouse Movements
How exactly is that new?
And there is like half a dozen more.
NSA WhistleBlower Outs Himself
as far as the Feds are concerned he is an admitted criminal, so they don't really have to answer to the media when he disappears.
Uhm what? Why wouldn't they have to answer to everyone and face criminal procedure themselves for extra-legally executing a citizen?
Wi-Fi Signals Allow Gesture Recognition All Through the Home
That's not how machine learning works.
European Commission Launches $12 Billion Chip Support Campaign
Infineon Technologies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infineon_Technologies), a Siemens spin-off do. They actually even have more facilities than listed on the wiki page.
Meet Pidora, the New Official Fedora Remix For Raspberry Pi
This is already providing some immature amusement to Russian speaking individuals.
Why Visual Basic 6 Still Thrives
Java is simple in the least common denominator way. The language is very limited, and because it is so inexpressive and full of boilerplate it's the opposite of 'clean'. But those limitations allow low to medium skilled teams to produce code of a somewhat consistent quality, which is why it is so popular in enterprise.
Lawmakers Intent On Approving SOPA, PIPA
SOPA would cost them so much more than that..
Pirate Party UK Looks Forward To 2012
Excuse me? Lack of a proper program? How about this: http://wiki.piratenpartei.de/Parteiprogramm
This is in fact the PP's official stance on many issues beyond internet and copyright. It has been worked out and voted on in the process of many party congresses.

Bug Opens Chrome to Easy Remote Code Execution
Why would you run it as root for the update function instead of using your distro's repositories?
HP To Introduce Flash Memory Replacement In 2013
The PC I'm posting this from runs Linux (a rolling release distro even) and has been running for 35 days with many updates applied in that time. Had to restart X when the desktop environment was updated. I will have to reboot for the kernel update though.
OCaml For the Masses
They compile to native machine code, FYI.
AMD Starts Shipping First Bulldozer CPU
Having recently assembled a socket 1155 system, I can tell you there is no way for the CPU to shift one bit (see what I did there). The amount of force required to lock it in place is actually scary.
Battle of the SATA 3.0 Controllers
Could it be that they have better controllers now? I just tested the read speeds with a Marvell controller on an ASRock board and a Marvell-controlled SSD (Crucial m4), which is advertised as having 'up to 415 MB/s' reads. The results of six runs of hdparm -t fall between 383 and 426 (this one twice!) MB/s.

Anti-Matter Belt Discovered Around Earth
Nevermind that 'discovering' such a lump might be very unpleasant.
Apple Hopes To Drop Samsung As Chip Supplier
I believe he spelled it this way intentionally, in order to avoid any potentially existing patent claims to the original spelling. As any law-abiding citizen should do. I would be careful with your use of 'Sir' if I were you. That's a very common and stylish word. Apple might have claims to it.
