Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, and Google Chase 'Got Milk?' Patents
They are stupid. They didn't even get a .com reserved for their own site.
Why Star Wars Should be Left o the Fans
He has had to hear about people being pissed for years. How can he love the work and fans and still continue to piss on the majority. He doesn't seem like an arrogant bastard in interviews.....but I guess he did create Jar Jar.
Researcher Builds Life-Like Cells Made of Metal
Self replicating nanobots scare me...but only on this planet. Anywhere else and it's a friggin' miracle.
Has Cleverbot Passed the Turing Test?
It would have been 1337 with just 3 more votes. Also some dogs can sound like they are saying "I ruv you", but it's just a cute trick.
Android Tricorder Killed By CBS
It was my favorite for showing off, annoying non-trekkies, and getting gobs of useless information on my current environment. I smell a Streisand Effect in the works.
Pakistan Bans Encryption
No one will want to go there for a vacation or business now, unless they plan on being disconnected and not using credit cards. They have lost their chance at ever getting a Disney theme park for sure now.
Canadian Firm Gave Libyan Rebels Surveillance Drone
because who has a 4 foot backpack? Their are r/c heli vehicles with extreme range and cameras on the white market. Big whoop.
New Mexico Spaceport Nearly Ready For Business
So true. Stupid summary when everything is relative. The 'Hollywood' and 'Redmond' money thing is so lame and reminiscent of twelve-year-old world view. I am putting cash aside for a trip up in 2016, and I make a 'normal' living. When you get back from space they will even give you astronaut wings, a novelty, but it gives one definite IRLpeen strokability when you sport them around town.
Moon Younger Than Previously Thought
Shouldn't all of the moon matter (silicon, magnesium, iron, etc.) be just as old as earth components from the previous supernova and nebula that created the solar system anyway? Most matter is fused within seconds of solar implosion and explosion. Since it is still taking meteor impacts, we could say it is perpetually new if it is a matter of age in that regard.
