G2ttrss-mobile maybe? That's the TTR theme I use on mobile.
Millions of Smart TVs Vulnerable To 'Red Button' Attack
The people involved with the production of a tv show wouldn't have access to the data being exploited, the attack would have to be closer to the OTA broadcast or cable operator. Changing the files containing the code would be fairly obvious so you'd still need to use some hardware for a MITM attack inside the broadcast or cable facility.
Why PBS Won't Do Android
In that case their mobile web presence has the Android devices covered. It's not perfect but it is useful so why make a native app?
Why Engineering Freshmen Should Take Humanities Courses
A girl is a woman in pupae form. Typically they're too young to be attending university. Technical schools have fewer women but they're there. At non-technical schools, even research schools, women are in the (slight) majority.
MS Office Tablet Delay Gives Google a Real Chance, and Not Just Google Apps
Google Docs, like LibreOffice, can insert equations written using LaTeX notation.
I don't think you can write while never having your hands leave the keyboard (you must at least tap/click the "New Equation" button) but I don't know how easy it is to operate that way in any desktop program that renders input.
BTW, MS Word's Equation Editor lets you enter LaTeX also, it's not some superpower only open source software has.
I'm not promoting any one of these choices, just pointing that by writing math & notation as TeX is useful feature in a number of document creation programs, online and offline.

Ask Slashdot: How To Make a DVD-Rental Store More Relevant?
Redbox does games as well as movies now. As with movies, it's only the newest and most popular ones.
Cleaning Up the Mess After a Major Hack Attack
Your whole stance looks like you have no understanding of the problems that can be faced.
Why assume the worst? More likely he wasn't inclined to go into that level of detail here.
If he's already going so far as to prevent the use of USB flash drives isn't it likely that email attachments are handled in a similarly aggressive manner (e.g. executables automatically removed, remaining attachments quarantined, etc.)? Workstation backups needn't include email; email belongs on email servers local copies are just a cache.
Early Review of 11" Macbook Air
It may have a faster clock speed than the 11" MacBook Air but it does *not* have a faster processor. Your Aspire One has an Atom processor while the 11" Air has a Core 2 Duo processor, which does more, clock for clock.
Looking at the GeekBench Results Browser, It looks like the 11" Air scores are at least double what your Aspire One's score would be.
University Offers Class In Zombie Studies
There is a course at the University of Northern Iowa called "The Anthropology of Zombies" this semester
That sounds better than a course offered by an English department but until there's one cross-listed between Criminal Justice and Medicine, it's all just talk!
University Offers Class In Zombie Studies
Excellent film but it's not a zombie movie. Cesare isn't dead, he's a hypnotized sleepwalker.

LOGO was good but a better My First Language choice for today is Scratch from MIT.
ReCAPTCHA.net Now Vulnerable to Algorithmic Attack
I think you're underestimating the public good from what Google provides but even so, the universities get their own copy of the data for their books so they can do even more with it, as copyright allows.
VLC 1.0.0 Released
To borrow a phrase from Michael Jackson.. What have you done for me lately?
That's Janet! Miss Jackson if you're nasty.
Building a Searchable Literature Archive With Keywords?
InftyReader is a program that specializes in doing OCR on scientific documents and mathematical formulas. It saves documents in a variety of formats including LaTeX and MathML.
Two unfortunate things about it: 1) it's a Windows binary 2) it costs $900USD for 2 concurrent use licenses. It was free until they licensed a conventional OCR engine to better handle the text (its non-math recognition was pretty bad before).
Authors Guild President Wants To End Royalty-Free TTS On Kindle
The tricky part of the argument is this. It's not the publishers who are fighting this. They love expanding the e-book market. Indeed the publisher selling the e-book rights might never have bought the audio rights from the author.
According to a panelist recorded for The Command Line Podcast, publishers typically do buy the audio rights and a whole bunch of other rights from the author but usually don't to use them unless a work proves to be popular enough to justify the added expense to produce an audiobook edition.
However, I think the panelist is most familiar with a niche genre so what's typical in her experience may not be typical in others'.
Lack of Sunlight Could Lead To Early Death
I heard a long Quirks & Quarks story about Vitamin D a few weeks ago. The US and Canadian RDAs for Vitamin D, 400 IU, are based on amounts meant to aid bone health, not for these other benefits. The amount in the typical multivitamin will be 400 IU, not the 800 IU recommended here. Unless you wash down your multivitamin with fortified milk every day, you're probably not going to ingest the amount Vitamin D they think you should. Balance that with your sunlight exposure in your region. I'm in New England so as long as I don't keep myself cooped up, I'll get enough Vitamin D from sunlight alone maybe half the year.
