Plan C: The Cold War Plan Which Would Have Brought the US Under Martial Law
This is a prime example of why I went to school for history. It's filled with good laughs like this.

Then I should be able to flip this and say that, if and when I am able to reduce my "body frequency" I can walk through walls
A State-By-State Guide To Restrictive Community Broadband Laws
Correct me if I'm wrong, please, I don't mind.
That being said, I was under the impression that - yes there are some laws/ordinances prohibiting (or outright banning) municipal broadband from happening - it was COST and MAINTENANCE of the actual infrastructure that was stopping these communities.

New App Detects Government Stingray Cell Phone Trackers
I recently purchased and starting playing with the one plus one. It's easily rooted (this is my first non-apple mobile phone) and I've already have many apps that track tower ID's, but...
For someone like myself who doesn't travel all that often, I look at these apps every now and then to remember where my towers are. This is so that when I do need to do something I want private, I can simply recall if the tower I'm connected to is what I remember.

Windows 10 Adds Battery Saver Feature
So this. 100x this.
The logic behind all these battery savers is ridiculous.
"Your battery is now at 20%" - Let me warning you every 5 minutes that it's low, consuming even MORE battery. Once is enough, thanks.
"Your battery is now at 10%" - Let me tell all applications about this so they can all send their data to the "cloud" all at once, draining it EVEN FURTHER!
"Your battery is now at ... " - Phone turned off due to too many bells and whistles about your battery being low!
Study: HIV Becoming Less Deadly, Less Infectious
Just went on a family vacation where my little brothers were playing a game on their iDevices.
The game - not giving it any specific advertisement - revolves around you "building" a disease meant to kill everyone on Earth. It gives you 3 categories on how the disease is perceived; Infectivity, Severity, and Lethality.
As Severity increases, the world becomes aware of the disease, the higher the severity the greater the focus the world has on finding a cure. So to combat this, you "devolve" traits that increase severity until the world doesn't care anymore or cares less than you want it to so infection continues.
Keeping on this fine line of severity until everyone in the world is infected, and then you "evolve" traits that kills everyone within minutes, winning you the game.
It seems HIV is taking a page out this games strategy book and sayin "Hey! Don't look at me, I won't kill you for another 20 years! Look at that guy over there first! (heuheuheuheu)".
