Cops With Google Glass: Horrible Idea, Or Good One?
'Glass, or just a head or shoulder mounted camera. Just yesterday, I saw a cop in my local grocery store with a shoulder mounted camera.
What the difference between that and 'ooohh shiny Google Glass'?
Cops With Google Glass: Horrible Idea, Or Good One?
That is far more people than you might think.
Every college student on a project that lives on a government grant?
Every public school teacher in the classroom?

95% of ATMs Worldwide Are Still Using Windows XP
Ahhh....that meme is so tired. You do realize that wasn't a 'Windows' issue, but rather a crappily created application issue. IIRC, an input that allowed a zero (or null) value when it shouldn't have.
Or are you trying to assert that crappy applications can only be written for the Windows platform?
Are New Technologies Undermining the Laws of War?
There are no justifiable wars.
Sometimes, "war" is thrust upon you. The obvious classic example is WWII.
The French/Belgians/Poles/Russians did not ask to be invaded. The Brits did not ask to be bombed.
Sometimes, your choices are reduced to only two.
1. Surrender and die
2. Fight back.
There is no #3. Wait, there was a #3, which Chamberlain tried first. Didn't work. So that leaves fight back or die.

53% More Book Banning Incidents In US Schools This Year
"53% More Banning Incidents"
No, they're investigated 53% more requests. The linked article says nothing about how many were actually banned.
And the majority of requests were from parents or library patrons, not school districts or state/local govts.
49 cases. Is that idiocy? Are these idiots? Sure. But good grief....49 cases out of how many million kids and parents?
Alternate non-OTT headline - "0.002% of parents in the US have requested a book be banned in their local school library."
You could find a greater percentage of people complaining about just about anything.

"Small", and completely useless.
"Yo, Assad...we're going to blow up some of your stuff in 3 weeks." Launch, and destroy some runways and now empty buildings.

Tesla Model S REST API Authentication Flaws
Say I am John Q. Private. Can you give me a scenario where I might care that someone has this information?
A stalker, your spouses lawyer, just to name a couple.
It's not a case of 'what can they do', or 'I have nothing to hide', but rather a case of 'it should not be that easy'.
Australian University Unveils New Carbon-Trapping Bricks
The article fails to mention what they intend to convert the CO2 into, or how much it will cost. Maybe the primary function of the company is to win government grants.

How Gamers Could Save the (Real) World
Witness the crowdsourced identification of the Boston bombing dudes. Some poor dude was 'identified', and a semi-major newspaper picked it up..."Hey...that's the guy!"
Sucks to be him. Or you.
