"Do as I say don't do as I do, some politicians outside of Argentina also have that attitude ;-)"

Officers Lose 243 Homeland Security Guns
Only America has famous athletes (Look at David Beckham--came to the US to become famous). Only the US Goverment can make mistakes this hillariously collosal. Thus, only famous athletes' government (the US) can do this.

They didn't want that mobile science platform, anyway!
China Begins Monitoring Billions of Text Messages
The Chinese government is clearly fixed upon the value of censorship. Censorship is what they're trying to promote, clearly. Cutting naughty or unacceptable words out of daily conversation is their endgame. They're certainly not monitoring billions of texts messages to identify and locate dissidents, increase their understanding of social networks that may work against them, or to increase their control over their citizens. Censorship is totally what they're after.

Publisher Whining Prompts Italian Investigation of Google
This sure is a nice search engine you got here. Be a shame if something were to happen to it. You know, I gots an idea, how's about you pay my boy Vinnie here 8.4 Billion Euros, and he makes sure nothin' happens to your little website. Ain't that right, Vinnie?
Why the BSA Is Less Reviled Than the RIAA
Why was this modded down? The RIAA nailing someone for $2+ Million for sharing some songs is in no way comparable to the BSA turning up unlicensed software and fining the business $0.1 Million (sourced from the Grandparent's link). Kudos to Ernie for going all Open Source, but there is a fundamental difference that might explain why the BSA isn't the devil incarnate.

Gamers were also shocked to learn that rainclouds plan on raining, politicians plan on seeking reelection, and perhaps most shockingly that scientists give the sun a 99.999% of rising tomorrow. Film at 11.

You've got a good point. I mean, a true addict isn't going to listen to some level 2 noob chatting with them from the barrens! Come back when you're level 90 in tier 7 dragonraid gear and we'll talk!

Whoever modded the parent as Redundant was clever, but it really should've gotten +1 Redundant. Get on that option, slasheditors!
Bill Gates Puts Classic Feynman Lectures Online
I'm also guessing that you know a hell of a lot more about Chrome OS than many of Google's own employees as you've never been entirely stupid when it comes to keeping tabs on your enemies. So either you're letting your own personal ego get in the way of your business sense while underestimating Google or you are asking a rhetorical question to spread uncertainty of what Chrome OS could be.
I'm not so sure that we can call FUD on this statement. I mean, at this point Chrome OS does seem like a fairly vague concept. Linux-based OS designed for cloud computing...maybe...and even then what would that mean? "Who knows what this thing is?" is a reasonable statement. Yeah it's Steve Balmer so you don't expect him to be a big supporter of the OS, but I'd expect that MS, Slashdot, and the internet in general will be spilling a lot of digital ink finding out what this thing is over the next 6-24 months.
Then after a reasonable 2-3 year beta period we'll be able to make an educated statement.

Cats "Exploit" Humans By Purring
According to my fiancee, who works in the critical care ward of a local animal hospital, the answer is that dogs are more intelligent while cats have more "intelligent" instincts. The dogs in the hospital will actively plot, problem-solve, and scheme to get their way. The cats, however, will more or less react predictably based on their instincts. In non-strenuous situations (because the CC unit is not a happy place), those cat instincts come across as intelligent.

Windows Vista Service Pack 2 Released
Your comment matches up with my experience with x64 Vista. Which makes me wonder if there's a significant difference in performance between the 32 bit and 64 bit versions. Maybe the 64 bit doesn't actually carry the Black Plague after all?
