US Army Sees Twitter As Possible Terrorist "Operation Tool"

fatduck Re:Paper and pencil (320 comments)

Except the article says nothing about "outlawing Twitter," nor was the report intended to warn the public of the dangers of evil Twitter. It was an internal report suggesting that intelligence analysts should look at social networking tools like Twitter as possible venues for terrorist communication. Is it somewhat obvious? Sure. That doesn't justify your knee-jerk response which, in my opinion, is a lot more "fear-mongering" than the government you're criticizing for no reason.

Is iPhone becoming the new mobile gaming platform?

fatduck fatduck writes  |  more than 6 years ago

fatduck (961824) writes ""Gizmodo highlights a few of the hottest apps of the iPhone App Store and asks the question: is the iPhone (and iPod Touch) a potential challenger to the PSP/Nintendo DS as a mobile gaming platform? Steve Jobs said as much at the Let's Rock event this week, calling the iPod Touch "the best portable gaming platform out there."""

The Senate is expected to endorse the act within a few weeks, which is also supported by President Bush." "There is no gene for the human spirit.""

fatduck writes "This just in: turtles, left to their own devices, may live forever. Turtles are unique in the animal kingdom for their ability to stop aging altogether. A turtle's organs do not gradually break down over time, nor do they become less efficient. In fact, a 100-year old turtle's organs are virtually indistinguishable from a teenager's. In addition, a turtle's heart does not require constant neural stimulation to beat, and can be shut off for periods of time at will. Scientists are now looking at the turtle genome for potential longevity genes. FTA:

"Turtles don't really die of old age," Dr. Raxworthy said. In fact, if turtles didn't get eaten, crushed by an automobile or fall prey to a disease, he said, they might just live indefinitely.

fatduck writes "HardOCP has published a review of the KillerNIC network card from Bigfoot Networks. The review examines benchmarks of the product in online gaming and a number of user experiences. The product features a "Network Processing Unit" or NPU, among other acronyms, which promise to drastically reduce latency in online games. Too good to be true? The card also sports a hefty price tag of $250."
