Ask Slashdot: Hacking Urban Noise?
Actually 8 days and some hours is closer to one week than two! Took me 9 to drive because I stopped in chicago and was drunk for 3 days.
Demonoid Domain Names Up For Grabs
It serves torrents, you can comment on torrents, it tracks bandwidth, whats the big deal? Its probably a pile of messy code anyway...,

Foxconn Invests $210 Million To Build New Production Line For Apple
Portions of the parts manufacture are automated, but Assembly is done by humans. Don't know if you have ever disassembled a laptop or not, but it is definitely delicate work better done by quick dextrous humans.
Ask Slashdot: How To Secure My Life-In-A-Briefcase?
I'm still surprised that anyone leaves anything of value in their car without the car being in sight, but then again I have had my window smashed out 10 times over the last two decades (hazards of the hood). It was inconvenient, but no laptop or vintage stratocaster was lost.
Heathkit Educational Systems Closes Shop For Good
The problem is that people are willing to throw their money at imagined goods and services now, instead of going to the store and buying something interesting or useful. Case in point: App store, Google, Facebook.
Accused LulzSec Members Left Trail of Clues Online
They are actually agents of wintermute, recruited in Chiba city, duped into doing the dirty work of an AI on the loose. This is best handled by the Turing authority.
Megaupload Co-Founder Allowed Bail
Pirates don't worry! I have discovered a site with more copyrighted content than 10 megauploads combined!
How Much Stuff Can Timothy Jam Into His New Hoodie's Pockets? (Video)
I have a Northface McMurdo jacket in size xxxl. This thing has an ungodly amount of HUGE pockets, so much so that I lose things in it. It also doubles as a blanket / mattress, and will keep you warm in subantarctic temps (look up Archibald McMurdo, of the HMS Terror, he explored antarctica. I would never need this.
Lawyer Demands Pacemaker Vendor Supply Source Code
mod up insightful. In this data leaky day and age, companies are reluctant to share their source code, but this is pretty standard operating procedure. Many big contracts would not have been granted if a looky-loo at the source code wasn't part of the deal.

RIM Unveils New OS Based On QNX
If RIM is going to switch OSes, why wouldn't they go with Android?
Maybe you guys suggesting RIM "just go android" are living in lala land? Why not just hand over the keys of the castle to Google and be done with it all?
Apple's Siri As Revolutionary As the Mac?
People are still annoyed by obnoxious cell phone users.
Yeah, that was the point.. It is getting worse and there is no sort of etiquette established by society yet. That Microsoft commercial for the MicroPhone was about this behavior. In metropolitan areas it is really bad. In New York, people are texting on the highway (which is never a straight line) constantly, and in the city people just stop in the middle of a jam packed sidewalk. This morning a guy on a scooter pulled one out at the stoplight, and failed to notice the light had changed.
Apple's Siri As Revolutionary As the Mac?
I'll never forget the day when people walking around gesturing and talking to the air apparently stopped being crazy behavior and began to be perfectly acceptable behavior. It was sometime during 1999, right before the internet bubble burst. I miss those days. Now people don't look up from their smart phones to do the things they need to do, such as cross the street, disembark an elevator, talk to their families, etc.....
Judge Says You Can't Know If Google Spies For NSA
Does anyone here know how to read government intelligence agency speak? I do, I watch several relevant TV shows. This case is closed, it quite clearly says the following: "Google and the NSA work very closely together, in fact Google was funded from the beginning with intelligence money and VC with this very idea in mind. None of this ever happened. Nothing to see here, please move along."
Zuckerberg Quits Google+ Over Privacy Concerns
You are wrong about this. The way that google has decided to unroll this product accomplishes many things. To begin with, it creates hype, and the invitation tree premaps social networks. When you join by invitation, you already have at least one connection seeded, and its not some buster named Tom. Clever, eh?
Is Final Cut Pro X Apple's Biggest Mistake In Years?
At my (fortune 500) shop, we have several versions deployed, and nobody on Studio 2 is clamoring for an upgrade to X. We have no plans to force them to spend money or force them to upgrade. This is the real world. We just replaced a grass valley deck that had been in use for about 20 years. We only replace stuff that needs replacing, no need to interrupt valuable billable hours to muck about with upgrades.
Telstra Fears LulzSec Attacks, Hesitates On Internet Filter
If you want to take out crime - do it at the source or check the cause for the crime first./i?
Shouldn't be too difficult to rearrange the worlds wealth equally, distribute the workload evenly to the populace, remove humans innate competitiveness, get rid of all people that are insane / have no self control, control the crazy teenagers and rewrite the rules of most societies. Lets get to work on that....
Gates' Future of Education Straight Out of '60s
Where are you from? Plato was insanely ahead of its time, did not suck. Programmed instruction may not be the end all be all, but no need to slander one of my favorite vintage platforms. I played Krozair and the other dungeon games until my fingers hurt !!
