Drinking Too Much? Blame Your Glass
What a tedious, puritanical twat you come across as.

Sci-Fi Publisher Tor Ditches DRM For E-Books
Now users can finally read their books across multiple devices such as Amazon's Kindle, Sony Reader, Kobo eReader and Apple's iBooks.
It will be interesting to see if the likes of Amazon honour the publishers wishes, or whether they still insist on using DRM. This might finally damage the Kindle business model. In a similar situation, I recently purchased the new Stephen King audio book directlty from Simon & Schuster, as it is in a DRM free MP3 format. Who would buy from Audible if the same material was available elsewhere in a better format?
Sci-Fi Publisher Tor Ditches DRM For E-Books
That's not it at all. I'm not prepared to pay for content that is inconvenient to use. I am much more likely to buy content if it is DRM free.
This is great publicity for Tor. More power to them.
Why eBook DRM Has To Go
I am more likely to download an illegal copy, as it will be DRM free. Why should I pay to get the product in a less convenient form. They are not even allowing themselves to play on a level field with the pirates, as they have an inferior product.
Physicists Discover Evolutionary Laws of Language
Bringing mathematical rigour to fields of research where it has previously been ignored can clearly provide some interesting insights.
Journalist Arrested By Interpol For Tweet
Ask a "western" muslim about this, you'll be horrified by their response. I guarantee it.
I'm sorry, but that is utter bullshit, or should I say pigshit, given the context. The penalty for apostacy in Islam is death. No discussion, no appeal, no equivocation. Many of your so-called "western" Muslims are the most fundamental of them all. This is a martial, militant and vile religion. No excuses. All right-minded people should be appalled by this. Utterly appalled.
Indian Court Orders Google To Remove Content
Worshiping at the altar of non-religion is still worshiping.
That's a nice little sound-bite, but it really does not stand up to even trivial scrutiny.
You cannot worship non-belief. There are simply too many things not to believe in.
LG To Pay Licensing Fees To Microsoft For Using Android
But they do still use blackmail tactics. They will not reveal what patents are concerned. They will not even tell companies that they are threatening to sue until they have signed an NDA. That is not the behaviour of an host, moral company simply seeking fair payment for their R&D. It is extortion.
Music Player Amarok 2.5 Released
Progress is not a smooth curve. You have to take some risks, or else everything stagnates. Don't be such a luddite.
Will Firefox Lose Google Funding?
Very good swearing. All that swearing must mean that your point is valid.
Evangelical Scientists Debate Creation Story
That's being a bit pedantic - and a bit wrong. A quick survey of your favourite dictionary will show that Evangelical is a tightly bound to a religious connotation. In recent years some have started to use it to mean enthusiastic promotion of any subject, but the roots of the word are religious.

Perhaps this just means that American Football is unusually predictable.
Volvo Demoes Automatic "Road Train" Car Technology
And how is that good for the environment? TFA claims a reduction of 20% in fuel consumption. I assume it's based on a reduced need to brake/vary speeds. Do large numbers of people really all want to go to the same place at the same time? Why not just catch a real train. Would anyone really wait in a large car park for the next road train to leave? It sounds suspiciously like bollocks.

NASA's 'Arsenic Microbe' Science Under Fire
That's complete bullshit.
This is how science is (and should) be conducted. It's called peer review and it is one of the most important safeguards of the scientific method.
Without thorough and ruthless peer review, people are free to simply make outrageous claims and expect to be believed. That's how religion works.

Amazon Prevails In State Sales Tax Dispute, Thus Far
It makes as little sense as saying a Frenchman should have to pay income tax to the Polish government.
Via the magic of the EU, that's exactly what happens, isn't it.
The Frenchman pays his taxes to the French government, who then give it away to the EU, who then donate it to the poorer governments, such as Poland.
