Six Electric Cars Can Power an Office Building
In the case where this becomes popular or common place in an urban centre, wouldn't the process of discharging, and then immediately recharging after peak power times, cause the peak power times to shift due to the demand for recharging - eventually negating any benefit?
Retailers Dread Phone-Wielding Shoppers
Indeed, this is exactly how i shop. In Canada, the largest book chain is Chapters/Indigo - and they have a distinct error in strategy; they have made it policy to only sell books at the publishers recommended or listed price on the book. Now, everyone else in the book business sells at a discount, or with sales, etc., but not them - and another critical error, is that they won't match prices. So while i'm in their store, enjoying their starbucks coffee and free wifi while parusing their shelves, i'm logged into amazon.com (in the US) and "adding to cart" all the books i like. - before i've left chapters, i've ordered all the books i like from amazon at a huge discount (sometimes 50%) and have already received their order confirmation. It's great! although, not so good for chapters.

Saturn's Rings Formed From Large Moon Destruction
Aren't all rings of this nature formed form orbiting debris - debris caused by collisions? The thought that Jupiter will have rings once the conflicting orbits of it's moons finally cause them to collide is not new.. it's expected and assumed that it will happen..
I don't think this is new "science".. seems obvious.
Facebook Leads To Increase In STDs in Britain
Ahh facebook? I think craigslist takes the blame here...
The $8,500 Gaming Table You Want
"I also wish they had more pictures and fewer renderings on the site."
Renderings = No customers yet - no one has stepped up to actually buy one so they could take actual pictures of it.
Totally agree with everyone else on the site. Wood working is a fantastic hobby, involving precision planning, math, geometry and all sorts of things you won't account for on your first go. So start small, and build on your experience. In time, you will be able to build a fantastic "heirloom quality" piece you will be proud to say you made.
Google Releases Source To Chromium OS
1 - build a competing OS

3 - don't allow people to download it
4 - Profit! (by writing off the failure as a loss)
Seriously.. what? I can't download it?
Opting Out Increases Spam?
Indeed, this phenomena is not unlike some interesting occurancies during the war in vietnam.
During a fire fight it was noted that, if you were shot, and then stood up and waved your arms around and proceeded to tell everyone "I'm hit!, I'm hit!" it would actually invite more shooting, in fact, targetted shooting, rather than random fire.
The war on spam, is a war my friend. Keep your head down. Shut up.
Never, ever, give away your position.
Sophisticated Balloons Could Help Steer Spacecraft
that Ballute is also the asian word for an egg with a dead fetus inside it (yes, to eat).
CFLs Causing Utility Woes
Precisely... GE, Phillips, et al. Fast start up, even lighting, reliable.
I've purchased a few lesser known names.. "noma" is one that comes to mind, and they are absolutely terrible. I use them in locations like the utility room, outdoors etc.
All in all though, these are a terrible interim solution until LED lighting comes into it's own. They're aren't really that efficient (although much better than incandescants, yes) and the use of mercury is just going to cause problems, regardless of whatever recyclying programs exist for these.
C'mon LED lighting.. where are you?!
Hints of a Link Between Autism and Vinyl Flooring
Areas with higher rain fall have been shown to have greater incidents of Autism. This is starting to make sense.. more rain = less time outside = less fresh air (or more exposure to polluted indoor air).
Nothing to do with the rain per se, just being inside more. Glad I live in an old house with wood floors and poor weather stripping. (lots of fresh outside air comes in).
Old-School Keyboard Makes Comeback of Sorts
The fujitsu 8725 (the most common oem keyboard) is $9.00 CAD.
Old-School Keyboard Makes Comeback of Sorts
Is this company sponsoring slashdot?
Anyway.. there is definately something about feeling, but it's only really about what you are used to. I prefer a fujitsu 8725, a modern cheap-ass keyboard to more exensive ones, simply because I am used to it.

Family Dog Cloned, Thanks To Dolly Patents
Because it's not right to "own people" - even fuzzy people that don't talk much.
I think the we abolished the ownership of people some time ago.
Computer For a Child?
Your daughter is way to young for a proper laptop... maybe you can just get her a mac.
I believe those things can even go in a bathtub, and are useful noise makers when bashed against a solid surface - kids love em!
