BlackBerry Back In Profit
Yes, they're a chance if they start marketing properly. They have a very strong security message for corporates, and that message is only getting stronger post-Snowden.
For corporate (not private) use, BB is the most secure phone/e-mail platform, and that's gotta be worth a lot when phones of at least two national leaders are getting hacked. For non-corporate use, they're not secure because they allow governments of India, at least, to spy on their customers.
If senior executives travel to (say) China, they'd have to be idiots to prefer iPhone or Android to BB. They should know they'll be spied on and they should know that the Chinese (and others) have no qualms using whatever information they can get for commercial gain.
This is the message they should be pushing.
Microsoft Won't Bring Back the Start Menu Until 2015
Trojan writers loved that decision. Executable SHS files had an icon almost identical to that of TXT files. Hilarity ensued.
Biggest Dinosaur Yet Discovered
Aw come on, what about "HUMUNGOSAURUS"? That sounds pretty bad-ass.
Humungosauras? that's what I had after the vindaloo.
Don't Be a Server Hugger! (Video)
7. My own network, especially my LAN, has lower latency and higher bandwidth than the cloud.
8. I can monitor my own network.
9. Not everything is a web app.
Study: Earthlings Not Ready For Alien Encounters, Yet
But if they are to us as we are to slugs, how much empathy would they have then? I don't go out of my way to kill lower life forms, but I don't particularly care when I do.
Probably an advanced life-form would be scientifically curious about life on earth, but if we were their hundredth similar planet and they wanted something from the planet, they'd just take it.

Japan's Alleged Death Threat-Making, Cat-Hacking Programmer Says He's Innocent
Umm, I think that might've cost more than $93,000.

DDoS Larger Than the Spamhaus Attack Strikes US and Europe
Even if those addresses didn't belong to your network, you should have had a route to them via your inside network. If you allow outbound packets from addresses in your own network AND from addresses for which routes exist on your inside network, that should cover 99.99% of valid situations.
Quarks Know Their Left From Their Right
It took a day or two, but now when I google "fuck beta" all the top results are from slashdot. Yay.
Press Used To Print Millions of US Banknotes Seized In Quebec
The best thing about the plastic notes is that you can leave money in your pants and it doesn't turn to mush in the washing machine. That has saved me hundreds.
Court Says Craigslist Sperm Donor Must Pay Child Support
Why would he be under any obligation for pay for their education or medical bills? It isn't his kid except in a technical sense.
Global-Warming Skepticism Hits 6-Year High
Your complaint seems to be "Skeptics are demanding that climate models very accurately model the global average temperature in each of the last 15 years, before they will accept general trends from those models". I don't think skeptics are demanding that. Rather, they've seen that most of the early doom-and-gloom models have predicted the last 15 years quite poorly, and are thus unwillingly to accept predictions from those models will be anywhere near accurate into the future. That seems entirely reasonable to me.
Electrical Engineering Lost 35,000 Jobs Last Year In the US
CXXs will go too, but through a different mechanism. Companies with lavishly paid American CXXs (and one or two levels below) will compete poorly with purely foreign companies and either go bust or be taken over.
Microsoft Extends Updates For Windows XP Security Products Until July 2015
So the original deadline remains, for organisations anyway. The announcement is that anti-malware products for XP will continue to be updated. Secuirty patches for the OS still cease in a few months.
Doctors Say Food Stamp Cuts Could Cause Higher Healthcare Costs
I also lack sympathy for the parent in this situation, but what you're proposing will damage the child. Are you really OK with letting a child go hungry, even though their parent might be negligent, when the hunger can be fairly easily fixed?

At least he isn't Roland Piquepaille.
GitHub Takes Down Satirical 'C Plus Equality' Language
