Is LG's New Ultra Widescreen Display Better Than "Normal" 4K?
I guess i'm missing the money to purchase something that I can do without! ;-)
Is LG's New Ultra Widescreen Display Better Than "Normal" 4K?
So yea... I get the whole "more resolution captain!" Absolutely. Every day all day. But I use a 27" monitor that only does 1920x1200... "Only." That's plenty for work and pleasure - i'm playing the new wolfenstien at that resolution, and its beautiful.
However, I would love some ultra widescreen for more real estate. To me, 4k is just too faddish, and thus too expensive for the poor nerds amongst us to justify purchasing.

Skilled Manual Labor Critical To US STEM Dominance
I have one question - how in demand will these jobs be 10 years from now? 10 years after that?
Seems to me as the populations becomes more dependent on others, being a welders, pipe-fitters, electricians, carpenters, machinists and other skilled tradesmen will pay off. But at what point do we become like mexicans *in mexico* who know how to fix everything they need to live? Broken pipe? Dig it up and fix it. Broken car? Take it apart as least as much as possible and fix it. Need to build an extra room or two on your house? Pick up a hammer and some supplies and get to work.
I wish I weren't disabled - someone asked me the other day what is my dream job - living off the land with a few farm animals and growing crops for a family.

RNC Calls For Halt To Unconstitutional Surveillance
no doubt about it. If you voted for obama, and are now in the middle because you pay attention to what's really going on behind big media, you're probably going to be really ready for what the other party has to offer. Especially when you hear on all news sites about how we're turning into a police state silently but surely.

Twitter's Fake Followers Watching IPO Closely
and how you could never make a dime off it - unless i'm just that out of touch. The only people who made money are the ones that got it for the 26 dollar IPO price, and since everyone has been waiting for the next big google, facebook, etc, they simply bought into it without knowing what twitter really is - an app amongst apps that is used by people who generally don't have a lot of money (under 18 yr olds)

Patriot Act Author Introduces Bill To Limit Use of Patriot Act
in a sense.
The retardlicans created the patriot act so they could do "this and that," but now that the dummycrats have been using it, the rerardlicans think its bad.
Now, sit back and realize the people making all of these decisions are your elected officials.
The Greatest Keyboard Shortcut Ever
If you open a browser at the beginning of the day and don't close it until the end, you're going to run into cases when you wish you didn't close out a particular tab. ctrl-shit-t undo's closing a tab like ctrl-z undos. Pretty cool.

How Do You Get Better Bug Reports From Users?
... their efforts to reach out to. They are actively trying to help you make your program better.
I am not a programmer, however growing up in the pre-nintendo tech days, I know what a bug looks like. I've reported many bugs, and the only response was from Charlie on the Natural Selection (Half-Life mod) team. As much help as he had been in the past when I lost my account info and helped me retrieve it when he was just a one man team, basically, the response back was lacking. I chalked it up to being busy.
If you're telling me you have time to program, but can't take the time to read an email that's bullet-pointed with very specific details and at least respond like a grateful human, then I am just going to say you have way to many e-mails to respond to or you're lying. In the prior, get more help. In the latter, please seek help.

New Drugs Trail Many Old Ones In Effectiveness Against Disease
... the patient, or patient's caregiver's.
I can say this from experience, growing up with parents that thought there was a magic pill for everything. I suppose them not having any religion, could have contributed to this, *just* as much as money.
I say this because, again, people want a magic pill. Doctor says "Oh there this new thing we'll put you on." Patient takes it and is unable to google anything, or pre-google, just took it with absolutely no knowledge of what negative side effects it could have. I was personally put on every anti-depressant of the early 90's, and they did a number on me. I guess being diagnosed by a shrink at the age of 12 (this was around 1989) with ADD simply by me looking up when the madman snapped his fingers after giving me a puzzle to complete. I'd look up and say "what?" He would say nothing, then repeat that process. Looking back, I should probably sue the guy as i'm sure the transition of that to methamphetamine later (Rx again) could have only harmed me in my pre-pube days.
Ask Slashdot: Using a Tablet As a Sole Computing Device?
we realize you've never taken a time out of your trickery, debauchary and entertainment time to learn electronics. Let me put your mind at ease. I've got a friend who didn't, until very recently, get a smartphone let alone know how to use a computer. He has no idea how to create a directory (folder) by simply right clicking. The first time he saw a window being drug across two monitors was like seeing a bootiful woman for the first time. I'm serious - he had half a pack of rolaids in his pants.
You should be able to do all your business with just a tablet. If you need to do something complex, you're at the mercy of finding someone else who knows the device really well, or using that brand new youtube thing to get a tutorial. Be careful using that though, because if you find the dark side of the internet, you won't be able to leave, and you'll lose your 6 million dollar account that hangs on you jumping through a hulu hoop immediately after beer-bonging a six pack.
Best of lucky, and always come back to get unbaised, unsarcastic, and completely true advise

With Pot Legal, Scientists Study Detection of Impaired Drivers
So number 1... which is all I really need, is how did they determine half the people pulled over were smoking cannabis? They say in the article they can't.
2 - the numbers are probably skewed in the way of cannabis because the US cannot lose any wars. And the war on drugs, is a war. So this is just a continuation of the scare tactics we've seen all too much.
3 - I know pharmacists. They say at least 50% of the population is on lortabs, percocets, etc... Stuff with hydrocodon and oxycodone. It could be easy to say, that chances are if you're reading this, you have a prescription.
Bottom line, the study is flawed and just a continuation of scare tactics IMVHO.
First journal entry - Bush's Speech
As far as what he answered about "personal" feelings, it was quite obvious he has personal vendettas against the middle east, most likely steming from his father. As soon as the question was asked his demeanor did a flip and his facial expressions turned from serious to scared, although he tried to hide that with a smile.
Lets think about something.... if you needed resources from a part of the world - if your friends and family depended on this resource - and in the past there had been aid to this part of the world so much that it basically defied "the moral prime directive," what would you do? I personally would make up an excuse to try to take over that part of the world to make it easier for my friends and family to make use of the "resources."
Lets just say that the resource in question is in fact oil. Even though Mr. Bush commented in his state of the union address that he would like to see alternative energy sources, I don't feel he was being completely honest, and HIS best intrests were in his mind. His best intrests would be to take over a region where 80% of the worlds oil comes from, as to keep the oil "regime" that makes up parts of the american culture alive.
