Pi Computed To 10 Trillion Digits
Yeah, if I remember right, at some point deep inside pi, there is a message primer. It establishes that there is a message to get your attention. Then you begin to decode it, like you said. The trippy part of that is that the message is embedded into the very fabric of the universe through math.
Sony Marketing Man Tweets PS3 Master Key
Lemme guess... you sank my Battleship? RT @exiva
@TheKevinButler No, *you* just sank your battle ship. Muwaaahaa-haa-haa-haaa!
NSS Labs Browser Report Says IE Is the Best, Google Disagrees
You had me LOL at "The test, funded by Microsoft..."
UK Asks News Outlets Not To Publish WikiLeaks Bombshell, US Prepares For Fallout
Great point, and who's to say that most intelligence agencies don't already have all this information? I think the people Wikileaks will be upsetting by this isn't the USA, but the nations that thought they were going to be able to use the information as a bargaining chip but now can not, because it's out in the open.
On the other hand, perhaps nations that already had this information couldn't act on it, because that would expose they had spies in certain places, but now they are free to publicly act out in defiance.
Jammie Thomas Hit With $1.5 Million Verdict
Look at those dollar amounts. First trial: $220,000 Second: $1.92 million Third: $54,000 Fourth: $1.5 million
Something about the shear inconsistency of the outcomes tells me how broken this system of courts truly is. It's not based on anything real. It's based on appearances, fuzzy opinions, manipulated interpretations, etc. This woman shared some music over the internet, and they want to financially crucify her. $54,000 thousand would take a lot of people a long time to pay off, let alone $1.5 million. That amount would effectively end her financial life.
Massive DDoS Cuts Myanmar Off From Net
Yeah, it just wouldn't sound the same if it ended with "Myanmar Shave".
Real-Time Holograms Beam Closer To Reality
We wouldn't want someone to confuse Star Wars (the classic sci-fi movie) with Star Wars (the contemporary adult-midget porno flick). Of course, the famous quote from the latter is "Penetrate me O-B-its-Long Ushorty, you are my only poke." How the two could be confused I have no idea.
UK Pressures the US To Takedown Extremist Videos
...they hate us for our freedom.
Pirate Parties Plan To Shoot Site Into Orbit
There's an easy solution. Take an unflagged pirate ship (no national flag, of course it will have a jolly roger) into international waters, and launch the satellite on a rocket from said ship. Or....launch the rocket from Antarctica. That way, the rocket/satellite wasn't launched from "Country X".
When automating everyday tasks with robots, the line must be drawn...
...when the robots begin discussing what rights they should take away from us.
Google Publishes Censorship Map
When the Government asks Google for information about a user, how is that "censorship"? It may be a violation of privacy, but it's not censorship unless Google admits that the government then used that information about the user to censor their online activities.
Of course, I did not RTFA. I prefer to censor myself ;P
Robot Snake Can Climb Trees
...and they may have just found lady's new best friend.
Pentagon Confirms 2008 Computer Breach — 'Worst Ever'
In 1983, a high school kid named David Lightman hacked his way into DOD computer @ Norad called the W.O.P.R. which almost resulted in an all out nuclear war between the U.S.A. and Russia. I believe they made a movie about it.
So until I hear a story that tops that, keep your "worst ever" superlatives to yourself. Oh, wait...
Wikileaks Now Hosted By the Swedish Pirate Party
....Julian Assange has officially changed his name to Captain Hook.
High-Frequency Programmers Revolt Over Pay
And if said software screws up and costs a few hundred million, or otherwise causes other "bad things" to happen, what's the accountability of the programmer or the manager?
Nothing. CEO's wreck companies/cause damages all the time, and all that happens to them, personally/financially is NOTHING. Maybe they get fired and then receive a nice golden parachute. Why should it be any different for the programmers who are the architects of the entire groundwork allowing the company to exist in the first place?
Thermoelectrics Could Let You Feel the Heat In Games
It's not the size of your joystick that counts, it's how HOT it gets!
Truth be told, I have not yet been able to verify my hypothesis on this matter with a willing test subject.
BP Claims Gulf Well Has Been Stopped
BP must have stopped the leak, I'm at Wikileaks right now and I don't see any new info from whistle blowers. Must of been the WBOP.
US Plans Cyber Shield For Private Companies and Utilities
How about just disconnecting critical infrastructure from the internet all together? Which desk do I send my invoice to inside the NSA?
Buy Your Own Tron Lightcycle For $35,000
From the Ebay listing it says these bikes are designed for everyday street use. If that's the case, how the hell is that bike supposed to turn? There appears to be no way for the front wheel to steer. Anyone have any idea how the hell this would work?
Verizon iPhone Rumored For Early Next Year
