Apple and Samsung Already Working On A9 Processor
The long term plan is to run OS X on it.
You Can Now Run Beta Versions of OS X—For Free
The hard drive is likely bad as you say, especially if it is the original from 2009.
I recommend to use Smart Utility (free trial--will be all you need to verify)
You Can Now Run Beta Versions of OS X—For Free
I feel like I've been running betas since Lion.
Was Eich a Threat To Mozilla's $1B Google "Trust Fund"?
You don't seem to understand how things work.
1. It is not just the Church that has a male-female view of marriage; this is found in religions and customs around the world and throughout history.
2. In America, it *is* the government that decides who can and can't be together, not the church. You get license from the state to marry, you cannot marry close family members, etc. If you live too long with someone, the state considers it a common law marriage and you have real divorce proceedings.
3. Churches merely perform ceremonies but the state licenses it. Without that state license, there is no marriage regardless of what church you were in.
4. Now that comes down to your main point: have the government change from being in charge of marriage to only having civil unions and give the word "marriage" over to religion. Many states already have civil unions that function like that already. But that is not enough: people want to be called married when they commit themselves to one another.

Is Intel Selling Bay Trail Chips Below Cost?
Just wait until after the beta goes permanent live. Slashdot will be available for pennies on the dollar.

Apple Faces Lawsuit For Retina MacBook Pro 'Ghosting' Issue
I have two 24" iMacs with burn in issues (now given to my wife and kids). My computer has two 24" Dell displays that are flawless. No more "all in ones" for me.
Tim Cook Never Wanted To Sue Samsung

I have an iPhone; my next phone will run android.
Ask Slashdot: Keyboard Layout To Reduce Right Pinky/Ring Finger Usage?
This is similar to workman, and might be better.
I've been experimenting with Dvorak but find I don't like the lateral movement to i and d, as well as the right pinky for s and l.
For qwerty, I would only swap f and t for the left hand. The right hand would need a little more substitution.
For me, reaching up with the first three fingers (or down with index) is no problem, but I really don't like the heavy lateral index finger movement.

ITU To Choose Emergency Line For Mobiles: 911, or 112?
We should make it 555 and make all the TV shows and movies into a joke when the give out numbers.
Magical Thinking Is Good For You
That would hardly be considered a conversion.
It seems to me that you want to believe and you are not quite being honest with yourself. You might ask yourself what truly prevents you from believing (pride, reputation, etc.).
Wikipedia Didn't Kill Brittanica — Encarta Did
I bought the software version of Britannica about 10 years back and the interface was terrible (relied on IE3 plugins IIRC).
If they would have produced a really good software package I think they would have had more adoption of it.
From reviews of the current version, they are still facing software problems (including registering the software so you can access updates, etc.).
When Are You Dead?

iOS Vs. Android: Which Has the Crashiest Apps?
iPad 1 "crashes" a lot compared to iPad 2.
All testing by Apple is now done on iPad 2, which has more memory. So some of the "crashing" is iOS telling the app to free up memory, and shutting it down too quickly.
This has made the iPad 1 experience much poorer than it used to be.
How long until the (first-world) classroom education model is obsolete?
He told me that the education system was not about education--it was about socialization.
That mentality is not something that is going away any time soon.
Ask Slashdot: How To Securely Share Passwords?
I keep my passwords in Lastpass (any similar program will do) and then keep the master password in my safe deposit box at the bank.
I also keep a list of all important accounts and sites (banking, etc.) so that whoever it may concern will be able to know where to find what is important.
My wife knows this, and she would then be able to access all relevant accounts, as well as know which accounts are important.
