Can You Buy a License To Speed In California?
I have the wildlife conservationist one. Doesn't seem to be helping.
Born To RUN: Dartmouth Throwing BASIC a 50th B-Day Party
Microsoft BASIC for Atari was awesome. Only superceded by BASTIC XL. But Microsoft was not always evil.
I agree that Windows 8 sucks, of course.
LA Police Officers Suspected of Tampering With Their Monitoring Systems
Do we really expect police officers to know how to investigate a theft? It's clearly futile as he says.
In-Flight Wi-Fi Provider Going Above and Beyond To Help Feds Spy
If you pay for gogo inflight you're basically paying for 28.8k circa 1990 service. Quite nestalgic but not exactly a hot bed of terrorist activity.
Apple: Dumb As a Patent Trolling Fox On iPhone Prior Art?
I agree with your explanation. But what does or does not constitute "unlocking the hand-held electronic device"? This method is quite disembodied. It's essentally a method of detecting movement over a screen. There's really no post solution activity.
Snowden: NSA Spied On Human Rights Workers
They are for human rights. Duh.
SF Evictions Surging From Crackdown On Airbnb Rentals
The landlords have nothing to do with this. This is the city evicting people.
Why No Executive Order To Stop NSA Metadata Collection?
Actually he does nothing especially political in nature. If he did, Gitmo would be closed, Wall Street bankers would be in jail, small time drug offenders would be out of federal prison, and he would have actually advertised health insurance availability. He's simply inept as a leader.
I voted for him for the first term. But when I realized how a non-leader he was (might as well be Bush part 2), I decided to vote for the Green Party candidate. Sad.
Hacker Holds Key To Free Flights
You've clearly never flown USAir. There's definitely no counting. You'll be mighty lucky if you can even see a flight attendant on a 2 hour flight.
Amazon's Fire TV: Is It Worth Game Developers' Time?
Get a vpn for $40 (American) a year. Problem solved.

Tell that to the sports departments.
Famous Paintings Help Study the Earth's Past Atmosphere
The god shiit isn't science. A Holy Grail reference, really?
WSJ: Prepare To Hang Up the Phone — Forever
How the hell am I supposed to find my cell phone lost in my house if I have no land line?
One Person Successfully Removed From US No-Fly List
The whole concept of a no-fly list so utterly asinine that it boggles the mind. Too dangerous to fly in a plane after going through security, not dangerous enough to arrest. Riiiiiiight.
TSA Missed Boston Bomber Because His Name Was Misspelled In a Database
... this had nothing to do with the TSA. They just make sure people bring bombs, snow globes, or nail clippers onto planes.
Even if they detained the correctly spelled Tsarnaev, he did nothing illegal until he built and set off a bomb. Some day the DHS will realize that they have to do real police work instead of making lists that depend on correctly spelled names.
Obama Administration Transparency Getting Worse
Uh, wtf is he gonna do in DC? Clinton had a much bigger ego than Obama. He's nowhere near to DC.
Medicine Delivered By Flying Drones
Probably would be much easier and just as fast to hire a bike courier.
Hungarian Law Says Photogs Must Ask Permission To Take Pictures
Billions of photos taken every day. This kind of law just lets the government selectively prosecute somebody they don't like. I also assume it doesn't apply to surveillance cameras.
