top Has the Ethanol Threat Manifested In the US?
The guy who I take my lawn mower to tells me the Ethanol gas is damaging lawn mower engines. Not sure if the newer ones are engineered to burn E-gas, but the older ones certainly aren't.
So you go out of your way to a marina to get unadulterated gas for your mowers.

The first thing all the security people tell you to do is turn off platform apps, and this site does not work without them. Nice.
top iPad Fever Is Officially Cooling
I hope they keep making shuffles - great for wearing when you exercise. I can see losing the classic iPods - the cell phone makes them redundant, but until they make phones small enough to clip to your workout gear, there's a place for the shuffle.

top Healthcare.gov and the Gulf Between Planning and Reality
Evidently, you are unfamiliar with our form of government: this project was the responsibility, solely, of the executive branch, and the President is already limited to two terms. Congress was not a part of the failed implementation.
The task was simple. Make a friggin website that takes user input and spits out insurance options. If this happened where I work, they'd fire the whole lot without question. Probably enact some kind of legal investigation as to where all the money went too.
If Congress can't handle a simple friggin website project, it's time to clean house and Enact term limits. Restructure the entire congressional seating process, and give people more control over who's buying the laws for us. It's time to change that whole mess.

top Mandatory Automotive Black Boxes May Be On the Way
This will be used to track your mileage so you can be taxed that way. At least that is the ultimate goal. Masking it in safety will get it started, and I see a few sheep have already bitten that hook.

Aren't you supposed to use Craig's List for this sort of thing anyway?
top Should Colleges Ban Classroom Laptop Use?
Had a guy in a class I took who was a speed typist or something - you could barely hear the lecture over the machine-gun sound of his typing. To me, the distraction factor was in the noise created by the tool. If it had been done quietly, I would not have known or cared.
