Man Gets 10 Years For VoIP Hacking
The one thing I don't understand is why have him actually serve his sentence? Doesn't this just cost people more money in the end. It may be worth while to have him stay until he has re-payed the $1 million, assuming he even has the ability to re-pay the money but why not just deport him right away.
Will Amazon Put Advertisements In eBooks?
Did you read the comment? It specifically said that it would be okay if they leave option A and option B open to let people decide. That way you will be able to continue having your ad-free books and others, who wish not to pay or pay a lower fee can read their ad-laden books.

Testing the Safety of Tasers On Meth-Addled Sheep
Ya seriously, I totally agree. This is not real world, it is junk science.
Tasers have killed people. I think that is clear enough to say that they should be categorized as potentially lethal force. It doesn't matter if you are on meth, cocaine, have previous heart conditions or they just taze you 10 times.

Vancouver was supposed to do that with a portion of the village to go as low-cost housing but last I heard the new plan is to sell it as expensive condo's.
Univ. Help Desk Staffer Extorts Over Copyright Violations
What about downloading legal software from legal places? Say using Ubuntu's torrent link? This is legal, isn't virus infected and actually could be useful or required for course work.
Mark Cuban's Plan To Kill Google
Couldn't Google just rewrite their bots to not broadcast Googlebot as the useragent? Fake it as Firefox or something. I'm sure something similar to this has been argued in court but can a website on the open internet now allow itself to be indexed?

How To Hire a Hacker
That does not mean communism. No. It means to use all features of the natural structure called "graph" as opposed to a simple "tree".
That sounds like anarchism. And please, I do not mean chaos.
Can We Build a Human Brain Into a Microchip?
First off, it's been said that people only use 10% of their actual brain power. So 1 billion neurons probably isn't far off from what we would use anyway.
This is 100% false.
Bell Starts Hijacking NX Domain Queries
Don't get me wrong. I don't like this practice. But I do not know what the technical issues are with doing this. Are there security concerns? How does it break stuff?
Also, does anyone know if complaints have been filed with the CRTC or if this practice is contrary to CRTC rules?
Real-World Consequences of Social Networking Posts
Don't you know that in our ultra-PC society that if you do not like a minority you must be racist?
You are very correct. Not liking a minority for the sake of that person/group being a minority is prejudice.
Not liking someone that happens to be part of a minority group is not racist.

That I am a little confused about and couldn't find any info about it in the articles. Hopefully someone can clear it up.
Consumers May Find Smart Appliances a Dumb Idea

Pandora Stabilizes, No Longer Completely Free
They have geolocation software that blocks IP addresses from outside the US. A while ago I tried some free US proxies and I think they were blocked as well. I am sure there is probably other ways around them blocking people outside the US and I would be very welcome to suggestions.
