Bill Gates: Piketty's Attack on Income Inequality Is Right
They don't have taxes.
They just have 'fees' for everything. So the rich stay rich and the poor are nibbled to death by ducks.
"Double Irish" Tax Loophole Used By US Companies To Be Closed
Not to mention that it gives those same companies huge incentives to medal in politics.
Well that's unintentionally true - especially for assholes like the Kochs that are awarding gold medals to lapdog morons across the US.
Secretive X-37B Military Space Plane Could Land On Tuesday
it took this long for the NSA find a backdoor that worked.
Ross Ulbricht's Lawyer Says FBI's Hack of Silk Road Was "Criminal"
Brandeis would have had the entire notion of 'Parallel Construction' thrown up against a dirty brick wall, then gut-shot. And rightly so.
It must have been great to have a Supreme Court not packed with partisan, corporate / police state lapdogs.
Ask Slashdot: Dealing With an Unresponsive Manufacturer Who Doesn't Fix Bugs?
Simple: file a Bugzilla report on them: that will definitely get the word out!
US Says It Can Hack Foreign Servers Without Warrants
point being, they're breaking the law in the country where the servers were in... they're going to slip up some day and hack someone that sues them abroad and in usa...
Sue? Nah, I want the offended country to consider the hacking as an act of war, justifying the seizing of assets and jailing of US government officials on charges of espionage. And a big country; too big to drone / carpet bomb. I'd advise Brazil to conduct a test case.
Silk Road Lawyers Poke Holes In FBI's Story
The first fatal casualty in The War on Drugs (TM) was an honest justice system, with someone in the back screaming 'She's got a gun!' while bursting through the front door of a knock and announce.

Will Windows 10 Finally Address OS Decay?
Each app gets a separate Linux user, so it's data is separate and inaccessible to other apps.
Ignoring the endless screens of permission requests with each update, including your mothers maiden name and bra size. But yeah, sandboxes are great.

Whenever you look up at the near side of the moon, you see a face looking back at you.
The $1,200 DIY Gunsmithing Machine
I saw my first gun-packing meathead in Walmart last week end (why, he was White - how did you guess?). I was very tempted to go up to him and ask :"What are you so scared of, that you have to carry a gun in public?" We all should, every time.
Unless you're living in Beirut, the real reason for 'packing' is race-based fear and / or small, limp junk.
Are the World's Religions Ready For ET?
I first read the trilogy when I was an atheist, and it helped remove that particular hurdle in my later study of the world religions that lead to my conversion to Catholicism.

"The rat has no voluntary control of its limbs, but the severed spinal cord can be reactivated and stimulated to perform natural walking. We can control in real-time how the rat moves forward and how high it lifts its legs."
This also accidentally describes the nearly-attained goals of the US state security organs (with assists from the POTUS and the Supremes).
US Asks Universities To Flag Risky Pathogen Experiments
