Hospitals Begin Data-Mining Patients
My wife is a doctor as well and I can assure you, physicians have no clue how to properly price medical services.
Ohio Prison Shows Pirated Movies To Inmates
Couldn't you make the argument that enticing an inmate with pirated movies is cruel and unusual punishment to an inmate that was convicted of pirating movies?
Wouldn't it be the same if they lock up an inmate for drug use, and then offered him the same drugs while in prison?
How Do You Backup 20TB of Data?
I've got nearly 16TB at home and know a number of people who have nearly the same as well.
Here's a hint - DVDs are nearly a twenty year old standard. Movies these days are stored with 1080p quality and can easily be 10gigs each.
Beyond that, I keep all of my home movies in uncompressed format. That and pictures and can quickly eat up a lot of space.
Agbogbloshie: The World's Largest e-Waste Dump
Harsh as the OP is, I believe thats more of a reaction to a completely fabricated story here. If there truly is a such a problem, then why would there be a need to invent scare statistics?
Free Geek looks to be a pretty impressive operation though. I wonder if something like that would be successful on the east coast.
Peanut Allergy Treatment Trial In UK "A Success"
Wow. Thanks for the insight. If only you could have been around to honor us with your knowledge a few years ago.
My wife routinely ate peanut butter during her first pregnancy but our child still has a peanut allergy. Maybe you should specify that it is the 'crunchy' variety everyone needs and not the 'smooth' that my wife prefers.

Apple Gets the Importance of Packaging; Why Doesn't Google?
I just receive a Galaxy Nexus this week. Wasn't aware of the tape seal in the one corner, so at first I could get the box open!
then, once I cut the tape, I finally pulled the top off only to then have the phone tumble out of the box and fall to the ground.
Wasn't a great "first" experience.
IT Calls of Shame
Having the zip code does not mean you have the city and state.
While it does give you a good starting point to make an assumption, zip codes do not necessarily follow state and county lines.
Slashdot Visits the Seattle Pinball Museum (Video)
The recent (the 2000's) Stern titles aren't that great. (Although the word is that some of their newer titles are actually pretty good)
The pinballs that could be considered the "golden age" seems to be the ones you are disparaging. Anything Bally/Williams from the 90's is now highly sought after by both the collectors and the players (which I guess could be the same)
Have Bad Cars Gone Extinct?
Had some friends visit the states from Thailand recently. We live in a city heavily dependent upon cars and thus spent a lot of time driving around town. One of the comments they made after looking out the window at the traffic was "All the cars are new!"

Game Developer Asks To Hear From Pirates
I've been burned so many times purchasing games that I've vowed to never purchase another PC game.
Dropping $50-$60 bucks only to to have title still full of bugs, or a game that just plain sucks has happened far too many times to me.
