top Researchers Find "Achilles Heel" of Drug Resistant Bacteria
In the article, Haohao Dong, another member of the UAE team, said: "Because new drugs will not need to enter the bacteria itself, we hope that the bacteria will not be able to develop drug resistance in future.".
BS! Evolution teaches us that a members of the species that mutates into a species with a more effective wall, it will have beter survival rates and thus will have developed a resistance to these new drugs. So while wonderful that a new type of drug has been found, the overuse of antibiotics still needs to be adressed, to lower the odds and thus the rate in which a more effective wall is developed by these bacteria.

top White House CIO Describes His 'Worst Day' Ever
I would deploy IBM Domino like in the days of Clinton, which Bush switched to Microsoft Exchange. Reliability went downhill with that decision.
Domino runs cheap and fast and reliable. And has always active clustering so you don't have to deal with downtime. IBM simply has a much longer track record of delivering reliable computing than Microsoft.

top Skilled Readers Recognize Words By Shape
If I try to sound out the words my reading speed drops dramatically. Full-speed, I'm watching the movie. Which tends to make watching a movie based upon a book I've read hairraising. Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings turned out OK, as did Bladerunner. If you've already seen the movie as the writer intended it, it's a hell of a job to reinterpret that.
Re: remembering: that's because you are trying to remember the word. Try remembering what you just saw/heard/felt/experienced with your minds eye, I think you will recall a lot more!
top DRM Broke
Dragon Age: Origins For Days
I would add a mandatory third clause:
3) DRM cannot be used unless a method is made available to remove it through a certified third party in case DRM fails, whatever the reason. (Failure to meet SLA, software company ceases to exist, etc)

I think Oracle wants to rid the world of Solaris. That's the intent I get from this gesture. I was considering Solaris for some servers, but this nails the coffin firmly shut.
