John Carmack Left id Software Because He Couldn't Do VR Work There
Lol, this is soooooo true. No matter how great the rest of RAGE was, this was bad enough that the game was unplayable.
IDC: PC Shipments Decline Worse Than Forecasted, No Recovery Expected
Every friend I know who games has built their own computer in the last couple years. If anything I've seen this trend increase rather than decrease. As a whole, less people are buying desktops but gamers are sticking with it.
John Carmack Leaves id Software
RAGE was a failure in my eyes. The texture pop-in bug is extremely annoying. I'm sure the rest of the game was fun but when textures aren't rendered properly when you're moving around the level, it's too distracting to even enjoy the game.
Crunch Time For IRS Data Centers
And, you just copy pasta'd that from somewhere else. Regardless I enjoyed it quite a bit - http://www.google.com/search?q=%22This+morning+I+was+awoken+by+my+alarm+clock+powered+by+electricity%22&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

Is Mimas Hiding Pac-Man?
I agree, I had to read several times before it made any sense. Looks like a copypasta from the original site.
Could Colorblindness Cure Be Morally Wrong?
"Rich people can afford to extend their lifespans, make themselves beautiful, smarter, and so on."
Rich people can already do this and do. It's capitalism at it's finest. Without this reward, there would be no reason to try to get rich and we'd all do the bare minimum.
We could probably look at this from another angle, such as what if a child is born with AIDS and we have a cure for that.
Google vs. China — Who's Got the Most To Lose?

Nice (I'm replying simply so I can find this comment again someday.)
Microsoft Previews IE9 — HTML5, SVG, Fast JS
Like prior IE releases they're still playing catchup and not moving ahead of the competition. Webkit & Mozilla have support border-radius for quite some time now and Opera, I believe, has also started to supported it. Then there's SVG which the others have supported for a very long time now.
This is no different than when IE8 was released and IE finally supported CSS 2.1 when all the other browser vendors had.
BioShock 2's First DLC Already On Disc
Ah, if the hidden content would have been the Hot Coffee portion of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas there would be a much different reaction to this. I guess its not the first time a product has been shipped 110% complete.
Accidental Wii Suicide
It was a Glock, which the commenter below is correct, Glocks (at least the ones I've seen) don't have a typical safety other than the one that's built into the trigger.
How the Internet Didn't Fail As Predicted
Funeral Being Held Today For IE6
I like the idea but it all seems like a shameless covert plug for "Aten Design Group, a design firm in Denver, Colorado"
YouTube To Kill IE6 Support On March 13
Most companies I've worked at block access to YouTube so there really isn't much incentive to convert companies from IE6 to something else. Some of the other Google apps may have more of an effect on this though. I feel that most IE users only upgrade their personal PCs when they buy a new computer so it's only a matter of time until we have all of those updated as most of the computers in the last several years probably haven't come with IE6 installed.
Mozilla Firefox 3.6 Released
The intro is forgetting the best updates of all, support for CSS gradients and multiple backgrounds in CSS.
Firefox 3.5 Now the Most Popular Browser Worldwide
I helped a family friend setup their new computer (which had Windows 7 on it) and the first thing I did was download Firefox 3.5, installed the IE Aero theme and removed any references to IE I could find. The nice thing with this theme is very few non-technical users notice a difference other than their browser seems to load pages faster.
Best Way To Clear Your Name Online?
I think where you're going with this is when somebody google's your name, this is the first result. Why not create a personal site, say yourname.com and give people the side of yourself you'd prefer them to see?
Facebook Masks Worse Privacy With New Interface
When user's stage a revolt, much like this Slashdot posting is doing, they typically listen to the users and make some changes. All it takes a group or two with a few hundred thousand users (the site has 350 million) and they take notice.
My only complain would be if Facebook listed me in the search engine results, which they currently allow me to disallow this. The reason being is I prefer my person website to rank 1st in Google over all these other sites I'm on.
