Anonymous No More: Your Coding Style Can Give You Away
It's not just limited by corporate code. Good luck doing this on pep8 Python.
Parents Investigated For Neglect For Letting Kids Walk Home Alone
Fellow Virginian here (hello from Buchanan Co!), and it was much the same for me. Many, many days were spent exploring the mountains behind our house, and we even had this really fantastic vine swing that we used to swing back and forth across the stream that ran down the mountain. We would've been around 10 years old ourselves, and while our parents knew where we were and we were expected to check in regularly, I can't imagine being told that we weren't allowed to do something as simple as walk home from the store (which we also did on many occasions, but that was closer to two miles than one).
AirAsia Flight Goes Missing Between Indonesia and Singapore
Why is this on Slashdot? It isn't even remotely news for nerds, nor is it stuff that matters. If I want to read about this sort of thing I'll go over to BBC.
Window Washing a Skyscraper Is Beyond a Robot's Reach
I don't think self-cleaning windows are truly viable at this point in time, but is there any reason to not have windows that simply rotate 180 degrees so that they can be cleaned from the inside?
Users Can't Distinguish Scams From Facebook's Features
Who are these Facebooks and why are they on my internets?
I'm not entirely sure, but one of them just pooped on your lawn and then told five of his friends about it.
Solving the Mystery of Declining Female CS Enrollment
I would say it's not so much feminist theory as it is the simple fact is that we don't know how much culture and stereotypes are skewing the actual data. In my CS classes, the ratio of men to women was something like 8 to 1, and a disproportiate amount of the latter were Asian-American.
Simple Hack Enables VR Mode For Oculus Rift In Alien: Isolation
Who says it always works flawlessly? have they played through the entire game several times? maybe there is crash code or places where you can literally get stuck in a wall.
Very unlikely. Most Oculus integration is little more than a camera mod; it isn't going to integrate to the point where it can cause the types of issues you're describing.
KDevelop 4.7.0 Released
I'm more interested in whether or not they've fixed the long term usability rather than stability. The last time I tried KDevelop, it didn't even come with built- in templates for C.
U.S. Threatened Massive Fine To Force Yahoo To Release Data
It changed it because the 9/11 attacks targets the two pillars of American power: the banks and the government. It scared them shitless that may actual be attacked (oh, wow, apparently they have a much different reaction when it's not other people they're sending to die). At which point they said screw everything in order to give themselves the illusion of their old safety.
China Targets 2022 For Space Station Completion
They've tried, repeatedly, only to be blocked by US objections each time.
Their own station would probably be more worthwhile anyway - I can't name a single major achievement the ISS had made in the past decade.
Study: Antarctic Sea-Level Rising Faster Than Global Rate
It's getting its compensation.....an Arctic Ice Cap that has expanded by 41% in the past 2 years. Most ice up there since 2006. Ironically, not reported here....
I guess anything goes to advance the global warming scam.

Good luck with that.

Nintendo Posts Yet Another Loss, Despite Mario Kart 8
It's really sad to see people holding out for the same titles that defined the last two generations. There are already great original titles for the Wii U - ZombiU and Wonderful101 immediately come to mind. Plus, for me personally, the backwards compatibility is a godsend for those of us who skipped the original Wii.
A small library of original but great titles. Established franchise entries like DK Tropical Freeze, NSMBU, and Mario Kart 8. A fantastic lineup coming down the pipe. Virtual console to scratch that retro itch. Backwards compatibility to hundreds of Wii titles. If the above isn't enough reason to grab a Wii U, one game isn't going to make a difference. Smash Bros isn't *that* good of a game to sell a system by itself.
Nintendo Posts Yet Another Loss, Despite Mario Kart 8
There's no reason to try to keep up with the PS and Xbox. They're underpowered PCs. Nintendo at the very least is trying to enable experiences that can't be had on other mediums.
Mac OS X Yosemite Beta Opens
Am I the only person who hates the flat UI style that Microsoft, Google, and Apple have all adopted? I hated it being shoved onto my iPhone, and now it looks like the same nonsense it coming to OSX.
New Treatment Stops Type II Diabetes
As the parent and others have mentioned, healthy food when cooked right is positively delicious. The real issue is that it does take considerably more planning and preparation time than a pizza that you can just throw in the over for 15 minutes or other preprocessed food that require minimal prep time by the people who are actually eating it.
