Microsoft Runs Out of US Address Space For Azure, Taps Its Global IPv4 Stock
I think the headline was meant to point out that people are actually using azure...
The latest Gartner's Magic Quadrant actually shows that Microsoft is on distant second, right after Amazon on IAaS business. In fact, Azure and AWS are currently the only occupants of the leader quadrant
WhatsApp Is Well On Its Way To A Billion Users
Than actual active members. I've had whatsapp installed on a phone for a couple years, and haven't used it in...well, a couple years. Am I in those statistics?
If you're on android, it costs USD1 a year to put whatsapp on your phone. Do you still pay for them? If no, it's unlikely that you're still counted as user
OnePlus One Revealed: a CyanogenMod Smartphone
No SD Slot = leave it on the shelf.
No replaceable battery = keep it for yourself.
Furthermore: No OTG - Thanksalot.
There are a quite few very nice USB/OTG Sticks (by LG, Transcend and maybe others)
which are _SO_ useful - and that's why I'm never going to buy a phone made by Apple,
Samsung and others that have no idea how to make a cool phone for everyday usage!
only one more thing that would make me consider a purchase: WATERPROOF!
but this one is out of consideration anyway.
Samsung Galaxy S4.
Replaceable battery, MicroSD support, OTG support. If you want waterproof too, then the S5 has everything that S4 has, plus waterproofing. The bad news is it's bloody expensive
OnePlus One Revealed: a CyanogenMod Smartphone
After having owned a Galaxy S3 for a year, I'm ready for the return of smaller phones. I've been waiting for prices to come down on used GS4 Minis. However, if they released a OnePlus with a 4" screen, I'd order it immediately.
A phone configured specifically for CyanogenMod is a killer feature in my book. My next phone will have to be much smaller, lighter, and thinner than 5.5" unfortunately. Any suggestions?
If you want a flagship phone then Sony Xperia Z1 Compact will probably suit you
a 4ish inc phone with Snapdragon 800

Drive-by Android Malware Exploits Unpatchable Vulnerability
If the vulnerability is on GTS, Google can patch it directly, as long as those devices are registered to Google services. Since it's in android, it's up to the device makers, or in USA case, device maker and carriers to push android 4.2 to the affected devices
NASA Pondering Two Public Contests To Build Small Space Exploration Satellites
I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, "I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!" I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell - "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!"
I would love to support your cause, but I need to ask you a question. What is the linux equivalent of this "go to your windows" step?
Ask Slashdot: Is Linux Set To Be PC Gaming's Number Two Platform?
I would think Linux already has taken #2 if you include Android game apps.
The article specifically mentioned PC Gaming. Yes you can run android and play android games on your PC if you want to, but I bet the number is insignificant

FBI Has Tor Mail's Entire Email Database
Think of something more like the Arab Spring vs the Civil War. Maybe i'm being optimistic, but I can't see the US army rolling tanks through the streets to quash widespread revolt. In the US. Killing US civilians.
Arab spring is civil war. It's just named differently since it was backed by the west
Nissan Unveils 88 Pound 400-HP Race Car Engine
I love alternative, cleaner energy sources, but lets be real. The emission was probably performed somewhere else, except if they can guaranty that the energy conversion and delivery process produced absolutely zero pollution
Google Charging OEMs Licensing Fees For Play Store
There is a white knight saving us from Google domination while still firmly grounded in the Android camp: Cyanogenmod. They're starting to ship presintalled in devices, now. I hope it's an ongoing trend, since the true power of open source is the ability to fork. And if more and more closely related forks appear, Google will want to keep everything compatible with its Play Store, which will halt its gradual proprietarization (eh?) of Android.
The pre-installed Cyanogenmod on the Oppo N1 is Google certified, akin to TouchWiz on Samsung, Sense on HTC, or Timescape on Xperia, and not exactly a fork.

Dell's New Sputnik 3 Mates Touchscreen With Ubuntu
Probably true, just a bit worried since it ships with 12.04 which is almost two years old. 13.10 would be a better choice to get a more useful version of Unity.
12.04 is the current LTS, and will be supprted and patched until 2017. Alternatively, almost any hardware that is supported on 12.04 will run just fine on 13.x, with maybe certain AMD cards as an exception, but that has nothing to do with ubuntu

AMD's Radeon R9 290 Delivers 290X Performance For $150 Less
Matrox dabbled, but never got close to a cost efficient gaming card, really IMO... the closest they came was the G400 IIRC. That was the era when you could possibly claim there were 4 competing vendors. Soon after, Matrox left the market to concentrate on 2D, and 3dfx dissapeared up their own arse. I'm not sure who the other 2 you are alluding to are.... SiS, VIA?
3DLabs? PowerVR? Rendition? Granted, most of them only released 2-3 generations worth of graphic chips, but they did gave us options back then. I remembered the how PowerVR delivered competition when they released the Kyro after the success of PowerVR2 on DreamCast
