The US Economy Needs More "Cool" Nerds
There are computer "nerds" who aren't stereotypical. I agree, more needs to be done to encourage these people to emerge, but there certainly are some cool nerds out there....Infact I skydive regularly and as a part time job I do fashion photography for various commercial sectors. So we do exist, but there's nowhere near enough of us!

UK Plans To Link Criminal Records To ID Cards
...and seen as UK government isn't exactly the most efficient thing in the world it will probably be another 5 years before they even try and introduce the cards for everyone..by then these plans for criminal records on ID cards would have been either forgotten or heavily campaigned against.

Hundreds of Thousands of Chinese Black-Hats
Are you kidding?
Many European cars fail American crash safety standards.
Are YOU kidding?
Its more like many US cars fair EUROPEAN safety standards. You don't even have ncap safety ratings for your cars. Tests performed a few years ago showed that the avarage european drives a car thats almost twice as safe in a carsh as an american car!
Just because your cars are bigger, dose not make them better.

Card-Sniffing Malware On Diebold ATMs
No..no reversal, that's actually true, here in the west..well it was, a year or two ago...banks held you up, and forced you to get a loan that you could never afford...unfortunatley somewhere along the line of repaying the loan and filing for bankruptcy the whole system went a bit tits-up.

Indymedia Server Seized By UK Police, Again
Freedom of the press is a vital tennet of our society
It is, but yet again we see the nanny state that is our UK government grovelling to shutdown servers that they deem 'innapropriate'. I for one am sick of wasting my tax on causes like this. Why can't the UK do something productive, get up off its arse and spend my tax on the economy, or maybe on catching REAL criminals!
This is one of the reasons I'm leaving the UK in favour of Switzerland or such like once I graduate. I'm sick of this big brother, overprotective, nanny state!

6-Year-Old Says Grand Theft Auto Taught Him To Drive
..See we don't have this problem here in England, beacuse even if a 6 year old managed to play GTA, steal their parents car keys, and get in and start the car. I bet you my life savings that he would stall before he even managed to pull off!
That is the ONLY reason why we still use (as you americans like to call them) manual cars in the UK. To stop our kids stealing them!
Once 'GTA:Manual Shift' comes out, that's when all of us in England and Europe will quietly swear under our breaths.
In Japan, a Billboard That Watches You
