Windows 9 Already? Apparently, Yes.
I completely agree with you except one problem with your logic. People, for centuries, spent hours a day looking down at their desks before these new-fangled computer monitors let us look levelly.
Have a good day though, and I love the anti-touchscreen, pro-mouse/keyboard sentiment!
UK Benefits System In Deeper Trouble?
The next column in the database was probably the key for the RC4 cypher. Which was probably an MD5 hash of the original data, no less.
Ask Slashdot: What Are the Books Everyone Should Read?
Stranger in a Strange Land - Robert A. Heinlein
The Fountainhead - Ayn Rand
Communist Manifesto - Karl Marx
Atlas Shrugged - Ayn Rand
Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card
The Divine Comedy - Dante Alighieri
Brave New World - Aldous Huxley
Mein Kampf - Adolf Hitler
Alas, Babylon - Pat Frank
Godel, Escher, and Bach - Douglas Hofstadter
This should give anyone a good look into the way humanity works, and you can truly look past any libertarian, communist, or religious. Lots of thinking and perspective. I've omitted many others have already suggested.
Fuel Cell-Powered Data Centers Could Cut Costs and Carbon
Combustion of Hydrogen Creates Water. The hydrogen reacts quite powerfully and rapidly with the oxidizing agent (in this case, Oxygen) and creates water. If that harms the atmosphere in any way, I'd be quite surprised.
Billion Year Storage Media
Realtime GPU Audio
As a pedantic engineer, I beg to differ. A frequency can very much resonate, just not the way you're thinking. Ever seen any scary movie from before 1980?

"I couldn't care less how many people tell me it is legitimate."
Of the Love of Oldtimers - Dusting Off a Sun Fire V1280 Server
I've got post-it notes on my desk older than this thing.
Still havent called mom.
But isn't she just upstairs?
How Apple's Story Is Like Breaking Bad
For a moment there I expected you to use the word Maverick.
Should Journalists Embrace Jargon?
I'll be that pedantic grammar slashdotter, but it's actually "incorrectly." Wrongly denotes more along the lines of the subject being incorrect, rather than the action being taken. Hence, incorrectly.
Nature: Global Temperatures Are a Falling Trend
So let's see, there are a few holes in your argument. I don't think your environmentalist point of view is necessarily wrong, but some of the evidence you provide is flawed.
It's important you realize that the majority of photosynthesis doesn't include trees, see for example algaes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_sink
Additionally, our cars are not even a blip on the global scale for carbon output: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1229857/How-16-ships-create-pollution-cars-world.html
Furthermore, while it isn't on a global scale, we've basically stopped having a negative impact on forest sizes here in the US for a while: http://www.wendmag.com/greenery/2011/02/the-u-s-has-more-trees-now-than-100-years-ago/
Next, many of the sources of greenhouse gases are unrelated to burning things, and just normal biological processes which are involved in food PRODUCTION: http://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/life/zoology/mammals/methane-cow.htm
Food for thought (pun intended), but I'm not challenging your goals, just want you to be more informed in your arguments or you make yourself and any others that hold your views look bad.
Where Are All the High-Resolution Desktop Displays?
We bought out the last 15 from IBM's stockpile a few years ago and now everyone at the office is using one. It's spectacular.
New Algorithm Could Substantially Speed Up MRI Scans
CERN Experiment Indicates Faster-Than-Light Neutrinos
Reading earlier in the thread, someone suggested that if neutrinos are really tachyons, then they have negative mass. The only thing that would make them go SLOWER would be to add energy to them. In a supernova, I would suspect an immense amount of energy, necessitating them appearing very close to the speed of light, whereas ones with no relative energy added would have speeds measurably faster than the speed of light.
Science Programs Hit Hard By Proposed Budget
Go look up progressive fair taxes.... you know... tax the car that costs 500$ proportional to how insanely expensive it is... let's say the tax on it is $1m even. And then let
s not tax food/shelter/clothing any. That way, the less you spend on non-essentials, the more you save... so if you WANTED to save up for the 500k$ car, you could, just by not paying taxes anywhere else. In the end, for the system, its the same even if you save for 5 years, because you'll pay more in taxes for the more expensive items later on.
Universe 250+ Times Bigger Than What Is Observable
"Just personally, I've never seen a truly convincing mechanic for explaining just how the last one would work."
Go read about the poincare disk and non-euclidean geometries... spherically-shaped universes which work similarly to general relativity (curvature of space-time, think about that statement) which means that the closer to the edge you get, the harder it is to get there, similar to the faster you go the harder it to accelerate. Basically, the edge of the universe is a limit in the mathematical sense, as well as the physical one, such that as you approach it, it becomes increasingly harder to hit it. This means that your distance relative to a certain point distant will approach a constant value, isn't that the definition of a wall? (even if you cant see it)
Testing Mobile Phones For Controlling Space Missions
Last I checked, Hawaii was more southern than Florida, however, it's much farther away relative to the continental US. Unless, of course, the island has shifted northerly (a direction isn't supposedly NOT moving).
Microsoft Fights Apple Trademark On 'App Store'
how about "Crapple store" or "Crapple app store" ?
Google To Drop Support For H.264 In Chrome
just thought you should know, as well as relevant plugins and extensions for chrome, which does now have an ad-blocker
It's Surprisingly Hard To Notice When Moving Objects Change
As a former competitor at the world-level in first person shooters, perhaps my cortex has adapted differently, because when I stare at the dots in the center, I can always tell that the shape or hue or brightness are changing. I can tell when they change and how they change. I can see how in many ways this might be true for 99.99% of the population, but when you spend man-years staring at stationary dots in the center of a screen (crosshair) while "looking around" in-game waiting to notice single-pixel changes out of the ordinary, maybe you learn to notice it?
