Interview With a Convicted 419 Scammer
If you read the entire article you'd see he eventually just gets upset and cuts it off. No good prepared questions, just amateur personal anger. Really a fail.
Google Phone Could Drive Apple Into Allegiance With Microsoft
Changing the default iphone search back to Google..
There sure will be an app for that.
Ridley Scott Directing Alien Prequel
amen to that. 1979's 'alien' is good, but the 1986 'aliens' is what made my heart thump and want to be a space marine.
GAME OVER MAN! GAME OVER!
RIAA Says "Don't Expect DRMed Music To Work Forever"
I support this fully... as I am purchasing everything with my new DRM'd money. He can't expect it to stay in his account forever now, can he?
Family's Christmas Photos Hawk Groceries In Prague
It would be amazingly hard to sue them, so finding pics of someone in another country that will more than likely never see it, is a fairly safe way to go, and zero costs, with little risks.
Apple Patent To Safeguard 911 Cellphone Calls
"It would disable 'non-essential hardware components' and applications on the phone, reduce power to the screen and potentially reduce the phone's processor speed. It also would make it harder to disconnect the call".
That sounds alot like verizons business model for all their phones, emergency or not. Then you just pay more for to get them back.
Microsoft Blocks Messenger In Five Embargoed Countries
I'm not a lover or hater of MS, but I know when a article is biased.
Right after the writer says "it's not clear that Microsoft was ordered to make this change, so what made the company decide that US-embargoed countries aren't worthy of Messenger? Why now?".
If it's not clear, why assume they chose? Why say they aren't worthy... clearly MS thought they were for some time. MS gets no good from blocking it, they just want users. Maybe their lawyers had been arguing with the government and finally there was a decision.
Noone knows... which means don't conclude anything. More info needed.
Space Station Crew Drinks Recycled Urine
Here's a video chad carter did on the development of this system Chads a trained physicist and a improv actor here in LA... brilliant. I laugh every time.
That's Not Tang: The NASA Urine Recycler took 10 years to develop. Watch the testing videos.
Record-Breaking Model Rocket Launch Set For April 25
Reminds me of this not amazing, but fun for kids movie about a guy that built the full size thing in his backyard.
Funny, the alarmist guy here sounds like some of the government types int he movie :)
A Monster LED Array For Irresponsible Fun
it also doesnt have any enbedded videos, and I cant seem to tell if its a bad install, im not p4rompted for any plugins or missing items.. although there clearly is. It rarely pics of embedded video, ever.
Is Your IM Buddy Really a Computer?
bt 2 of those are just yes no answers. seesm to NOT be what you're looking for.
Belkin's Amazon Rep Paying For Fake Online Reviews
It wasn't personal, I'm just supposed to do that after I post my glowing review of the belkin backpack as anon. otherwise I dont get paid.
Carefully Timed Jerks Could Power Space Elevator
"Why is everyone so obsessed with this terrible idea? Even if we got it to work, there's no way we'd be able to afford the maintenance and energy costs. It just isn't viable."
This guy just copied and pasted his post. I found this same post about plane flight, the space shuttle, the hubble, the mars rover, and the lightbulb.
ok, i lied, but you get the point :)
32bit Win7 Vs. Vista Vs. XP
Seems to work just fine for the olympics. If you just want to see who was the best, then its fine. The interesting bit being it beats both when everyone is so expecting another dissapointment. That actually is news till we see more.
It doesnt hope to be a quantitative comparison. And a certain audience really does care about that... just probably not slashdot.
People around these parts like #'s alot more. dont worry though, #'s will come.
HP Accused of Illegal Exportation To Iran
The military is run very much like any other enterprise; cell phones, fax machines, computers, and -printers-. lots of paperwork. a big part of the military is moving data/information, documenting it, getting it in front of people to make decisions. alot of paying bills, aquiring supplies, etc.
anything that helps a business run pretty much helps the military run. the better it is, the more efficient the war machine is.
(although im sure some vets would disagree the paperwork helps anything... haha.. but you get the idea)
Fairpoint Pledges To Violate Net Neutrality
Which is why I'm not looking for a new provider right now.
if it did, I'd be looking up new plans in my area. Thats just rediculous. They are altering and restricting service, with no added benefits anywhere?
The competitors should be advertising that they arent fairpoint as their best marketing campaign ever.
DHS To Grab Biometric Data From Green Card Holders
In a world where wiretaps, illegal searches, etc are very big issues, how on earth is simply keeping track of public and readily available, likely easily searchable blogs not an obvious choice over the other ways to gather information??
If slashdot had a terrorist corner, id expect the DHS to log in now and again. anything less would be negligent.
P.S. they should post anon. you know, for security.
Blood From Mosquito Traps Car Thief
Seems like a simple case...
can i add one more bullet?
Hawaii driles hit magma chamber
Well i guess it was good scientists that found it. If it was evil, we'd be seeing a kick-ass LAIR being built!
Yeah, I see the solution so clearly now, Was trying to solve this riddle for years.
'Cheating on your husband' is to 'virgin birth'
as 'drunken emailing' is to 'sleep mailing'.
