Opera Proposes Switching Browser Scrolling For 'Pages'
Hmm, I like the "Pages" part, but I don't like the "ads" part. Lets compromise: No pages, no ads. Great!
Video Game Playing Increases Food Intake In Teens
It must truly depend on the game. In FIFA 09 you can surely go for a sandwich before issuing that free-kick? Or get some chips in half-time?
In other games this often isn't the case. After playing some World of Warcraft one could be starving, yet go on for another hour easily.
Happy 80th Birthday, William Shatner!
Congrats Kirk and congrats me! XD
HTC Invests $40 Million In OnLive
Yes, but OnLive could surely use a lot of more servers (world wide). I tried some demos, with a 100/100mbit optical fibre connection over here in Sweden the latency was unbearable, not to be unexpected as they only have servers situated in the U.S. amirite?
The Rise and Fall of Graphic Adventure Games
Magicka is a new adventure game that is quite original. If you don't know what it is, check the video "WTF is Magicka?" by Totalbiscuit/Halibut(?) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_XP9OBWGKo
The only negative thing right now is that there are quite a few bugs in the game, but the devs are on it.
Slashdot Launches Re-Design
Nothing wrong with the looks per-say (as others have said, too much spaces... of whiteness... whitespaces, yeah), but it's definitely sluggish. It's choppy to browse comments, and I'm on my stationary gaming PC running Chrome!
Amazon, Not Developers, Will Set New App Store's Prices
They don't even have to reject it, they can just set the retail price to $2,000,000,000. Granted, it wouldn't sell, but still.
Playmate Photo From Apollo 12 Up For Auction
Is it just me, or did this link to pixelated nudity get slashdotted much faster than the usual links?
NASA Names Best & Worst Sci-Fi Movies of All Time
Sometimes, drinking coffee and looking at pretty pictures all day can get awfully boring!
Can Movies Inspire Kids To Be Future Scientists?
They sure worked on me. I wanna be either a sci-fi actor or a scientist.
New MacBook Pros To Sport Light Peak Technology
Or you could have 1 universal adapter with all those ports connected to a single Light Peak port.
The Strange Case of Solar Flares and Radioactive Decay Rates
There's only one way to find out. We have to predict a solar flare, and travel through the gate at that exact time in order to go back 6000 years in time.
Japan To Launch Solar Sail Spacecraft "Ikaros"
The spacecraft's 46-foot-wide sails are thinner than a human hair and lined with thin-film solar panels.
Won't that easily break if something even touches it? (lots of space rock going a few km/s out there, or am i totally off?)
Scientists Turn T-Shirts Into Body Armor
Yet TFA says nothing about this armor being bullet-proof, as this slashdot article clearly states.
Only that “We should be able to fabricate much tougher body armors using this new technique. It could even be used to produce lightweight, fuel-efficient cars and aircrafts.”
iCade, an Arcade Cabinet Docking Bay For Your iPad
I really want one.
SETI Is 50 Years Old; No Sign of ET
What if we blow up the sun? Would that send them a clear enough message?
Professors Banning Laptops In the Lecture Hall
Why don't they just make sure the students can't get a wireless connection in the class rooms? Shouldn't be too hard, I heard there are wallpapers that can do that these days.
NASA Estimates 600 Million Metric Tons of Water Ice At Moon's North Pole
Saturn Moon Could Be Hospitable To Life
Who cares if life exists or not, I wanna live there!
