Robbery Suspect Tracked By GPS and Killed
Seems like a good idea to me.
The theif didn't have to raise his gun at a cop. Who wouldn't shoot at someone pointing a gun at them?

Motorola's Whacked Lapdock Can Make Raspberry Pi Base
I'm in the process of relocating and have been using my Droid4 with the Lapdock made for the Bionic as my only non 4 inch screen internet access device. It will likely be another two weeks until I can get my PC's back online. I paid $120 for the lapdock, much less than a new laptop. The phones could definately use more RAM; that would improve the performance. Also when VZW rolled out ICS the Webtop went to crap without Firefox and Flash. Of course I've installed those.
I only trusted the motel computers to print out files that I downloaded to the phone and then moved to a USB stick using the lapdock.

Ask Slashdot: I Want To Read More. Should I Get an eBook Reader Or a Tablet?
Is not going to rest on the purchace of a device. If you want to read more you will find a way to read more. My preferance is books; the search function provided by my brain becomes more powerful with each use. Buy your device and read the fine manual.

Slashdot Asks: Beating the Summer Heat?
old school carpenter: we call this tying wet rags around your head and neck. I've done it for years and didn't know how to market it. Darn.
Slashdot Asks: Beating the Summer Heat?
I live in 27106. I've been working on a roof in Advance, NC. We start at 6-6:15 am. I fiigure +30 for temp on the roof over air temp. My crew is off the roof before it gets really hot. I think most US people are a bit spoiled; no ac, oh splinters on my deck, my pet is severe_condition, sometimes i hear my_child has severe_condition, will there be dust?
Geez lady! I am going to change out your front door! Of course there is going to be dust! And Yes the dreadful outside air is going to come inside your house! This is July so hot air will be going in; I can wait for it to rot out some more and do it the second week of November; just before Thanksgiving, that would be nice.
I left my back door, to the house, open twice this week. Kids, go get your knees scrapped, get some sketter bites, catch some lightening bugs. Humans can and do adjust; I think I'll go outside now.

Loudspeakers around my home:
Does the author of the poll mean a public address system or any electronic speaker or a human that speaks loudly? Slashdot polls continue to decline in overall quality. I'd rank this poll a -1 for lack of clarity.
The Linux Counter Relaunches
really a silly counter. I started in '98. I have had many computers since that first one so exactly what are the counting?
Do you take a print newspaper at home?

Ask Slashdot: Living Without Internet At-Home Access?
Library; it takes forever to get on one the computers at my local branch but they have a bunch of books. It comes free with your property taxes.
Board games: chess, checkers, monopoly, an old Avalon Hill wargame. I'll sell you a copy of "1776". Cards.
Buy copies of the books you refer to most often at the library.

Among the Costs of War: $20B In Air Conditioning
slashdot is _just_ now picking up this story!
These wars are being fought to keep people working which makes money for who? It's not about terrorism, it IS about MONEY.
Who makes those air conditioners? Who makes those generators? Who makes the bullets, mortar rounds, etc.? The US has what a million or so in uniform (who makes the uniforms?), it IS about the MONEY.
War is generally good for the economy but not so good for those being shot at on both sides.
How to have a good economic environment without killing each other has been and will continue to be an essential problem to solve.
