Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet
That's just an excuse to keep investigating until the US knows whom to blame.
The Improbable Story of the 184 MPH Jet Train
Look at LA's transit history. Or watch Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Of course, in reality the Judge Dooms of this world won.
Rand Paul and Silicon Valley's Shifting Political Climate
So it's ok for conservatives to not be open to liberal ideas but it's not ok for liberals to be cool with conservative ideas? Nice double standard you have there.
Okay, fine. Be a conservative and don't even talk about diversity. Or be a liberal and talk about diversity, but mean "people who look different but think the same." Pick your poison.
Meet the Muslim-American Leaders the FBI and NSA Have Been Spying On
Until they incorporate they're not entitled to free speech or religious exemptions.
One is a case involving employer responsibilities for health care, in light of the religious views of the employers. The other is an article about individuals being surveiled for their religious views.
Normal Humans Effectively Excluded From Developing Software
I wonder if anyone in the architecture profession has ever proclaimed "Well if you really want to change the world, empower regular people to build skyscrapers."
Well what about building a shed out back so your tools don't rust?
Rob Pardo Says Farewell To Blizzard
I'm not sure how Minecraft applies, though I agree that Blizzard now is not the Blizzard of 10 years ago.
The View From Inside A Fireworks Show
Beyond all of that, this is about public perception. The complete tool who did this is practically begging to have members of the public pile onto the FAA's existing effort to, in practice, shut down this entire hobby and almost every attempt to put these tools to work in research and business. Gee, thanks.
More likely, members of the public will watch the video and think it's great and isn't it great that someone is able to do that. Relax.
NSA Considers Linux Journal Readers, Tor (And Linux?) Users "Extremists"
I do feel kind of extreme. Extremely awesome for being a Linux user!
Most Linux users do.
Google Is Offering Free Coding Lessons To Women and Minorities
But I'm a white male. I have nothing Google wants. :(
Actually, if you would kindly run all of your personal and financial information through our marketing algorithms--er, "free cloud tools and services," that would be fantastic. Thanks.
Match.com, Mensa Create Dating Site For Geniuses
This is a contradiction. It is not easy to do these things, whether they are done for good or evil. If your measure of intelligence does not account for understanding other people, it is flawed.
CEO's are stupid as boxes of rocks, but they can sell themselves and talk others into doing things and convince people they know what they are doing.
Toyota's Fuel Cell Car To Launch In Japan Next March
I don't think it's the pressure of the rocket fuel that would make me nervous.
Just what I want, twin 10000 PSI bombs waiting underneath me for just the right fender bender.
The Rise and Fall of the Cheat Code
PC multiplayer games still have cheats. They just have to be set from the console, by an administrator.
Girls Take All In $50 Million Google Learn-to-Code Initiative
I have no idea what you're trying to say.
Ask Slashdot: What Inspired You To Start Hacking?
Hackers are curious people who just want to know how a system works.
Bingo. I finally realized this week why I never really felt comfortable with a few of my Help Desk coworkers: they are neither curious nor creative in their jobs. "Because I can" should be a common response on our team. Oh, and I don't trust computer techs who don't game.
Linus Torvalds Reads Your Mean Tweets
Hey, What do you have against PBS?
Like, PBS levels of tame.>
Anti-Virus Is Dead (But Still Makes Money) Says Symantec
And the flipside: if I have a known malware sample ignored by the AV, why can't I add its signature to the database myself? Why must I submit it to the vendor first to await their sluggish response?
You are absolutely correct, this drives me nuts. An illustration from the corporate end user perspective: it is almost impossible to get any information from any AV vendor about WHY a certain signature was triggered. Given the prevalence of false positives with the latest heuristic and reputation-based detections, this information can be absolutely vital to making the correct decisions. But the best you can usually get is 'it is a trojan' or some other vague crap. They seem to view their signatures as some sort of secret sauce that must never be revealed.
The Greatest 'Amateur' Astronomer You've Probably Never Heard Of
This. Also: adaptive optics.
Which is around 64 times the surface area. Please: better math, more precise statements.
Star Wars: Episode VII Cast Officially Announced
My own response is "interested apathy" - it might be good, but I really just can't force myself to care anymore, not the way I used to.
I think you mean "ambivalence."
E.T. Found In New Mexico Landfill
Considering that the AVGN just did a movie based on this legend, I wonder what his reaction will be?
No need to wonder: http://cinemassacre.com/2014/0...
The movie is still in post, by the way. It isn't done yet.
NYC's 19th-Century Horse Carriages Spawn Weird, Truck-Size Electric Car
Disclosure: I've never been to NYC, and I don't know how these horses are treated. If they're generally treated poorly, then disregard my comments.
That said, it makes me wonder if the animal rights activists have ever met working horses. Working animals are bred for their jobs and they tend to enjoy them. My brother owned a draft horse and there was nothing he liked better than pulling. If pulling teams are animal cruelty, then so is playing fetch with your retriever.
