Passcodes Prove Predictable
Last week LulzSec released a list of everybody in the world's PIN. I found mine in there anyway!
Hackers Find New Way To Cheat On Wall Street
Scott Adams (creator of Dilbert) wrote about this just a few weeks ago: http://www.dilbert.com/blog/entry/?EntryID=541.
Senate Repeals 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'
Actually his "I have a dream" speech was largely improvised.
Exposing the Link Between Cell Phones and Fertility
Not really. If journalists don't even bother to look the topic up on Google and find this story, it proves the point.
Replacing Sports Bloggers With an Algorithm
Don't praise the machine!
CD Sales Continue To Plummet, Vinyl Records Soar
Did you know that disco record sales were up 400% for the year ending 1976? If these trends continues... Aaay!
How Students Use Wikipedia
When I was a student, we had to sign away the rights to anything we wrote to the college, so I'd imagine you'd have to get permission from the college to submit it to Wikipedia in the first place.

Mumbai Police To Enforce Wi-Fi Security
Calling it a "scare tactic" is a bit harsh. I'd say its more the police wanting something to point to when their bosses ask what they've done to "make Mumbai safe from this happening again".
New Asimov Movies Coming
I would have enjoyed the movie if it wasn't for long minutes of 'nothing' repeated time and time again.
Um, you have read LoTR right? Quite frankly I was impressed by the sheer quantity "nothing happening" that Jackson managed to cut out.
Royal Society and Creationism In Science Classes
I have no problem with students being shown the difference between science and "creationism". One is the very antithesis of the other. How can the average student be expected to argue against this nonsense if they don't understand what it is and why it is not science?
