Nice to meet you, Buckaroo
top US May Disable All Car Phones, Says Trans. Secretary
Because there's never a reason that a passenger would want to take a phone call. Or for a driver to call 911 for any reason...
top Immaculate Conception In a Boa Constrictor
And apparently female boa constrictors are able to be born without original sin too (what Immaculate Conception really talked about; Virgin Birth is a separate idea).
top Net Neutrality Supporters Hammered In Elections
Quality of Service is not what "Net Neutrality" is about. You've described a QoS system, which, while some people may not like, is not the fundamental threat of a non-neutral net. In the world of the non-neutral net, AT&T wants Google to pay them money for the right to be viewed by their customers. In a non-neutral net, Yahoo could partner with AT&T and together say that AT&T customers cannot access Google search, but rather only Yahoo search. Or if they're not so evil as to block Google search, they will just purposefully send Google queries over a slower pipe than Yahoo queries, making people think that Google is slow, when in reality it's an artificial speed degradation meant to line AT&T's pockets by blackmailing content providers to pay them more.
Throttling on the application layer (BitTorrent packets can arrive out of order, or arrive later, than Skype packets since P2P doesn't need real-time access) is one thing. But the big ISPs want to throttle on the end-point, in order to extract money from Google, Hulu, Netflix or any random new web service that provides cool new content.

top Feds Won't File Charges In School Laptop-Spy Case
The students did detect this. They saw the light blinking on and off, and reported it. These claims were dismissed as something wrong with the light. Of course, the fact that the claims were dismissed by the very group of people who could be taking the pictures should have made it seem a bit suspicious...
top Original Cast On Board For Ghostbusters 3
They left Schwarzenegger out of Terminator 4 for a reason.
I think they left Schwarzenegger out of Terminator 4 because he's kind of busy being the governor of California right now...
top Yellow Dog Linux v4.1 Released
Actually, thanks to some clever reverse engineering, it is up to Yellow Dog now. The folks at
http://bcm43xx.berlios.de/ have released an open source driver for Airport Extreme. In fact, I'm using it now to submit this post on Gentoo running on a 12" Powerbook. Instructions can be found here: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-409194.html
