GPGPU Bitcoin Mining Trojan
But if the price of gold were about gold's industrial and medical applications, it would cost a small fraction of what it actually does. Besides which, how do "industrial applications" provide more of a "real" value than the jewelry industry?
James Murdoch's Defense Crumbles
I usually get my news from the New York Times. They're the "paper of record," so they typically try to keep a fairly neutral tone. So I can't tell whether it's just me, or whether there really is a hint of glee in their coverage of the scandal.
Google+ Account Suspensions Over ToS Drawing Fire
I wonder if their CEO uses "Lawrence" or "Larry" on his account.
Spotify To Bait and Switch?
I'm twenty-five, you insensitive clod!

I'm pretty sure that the motivation for this experiment was to settle a long-standing argument about D&D encumbrance rules.
IT Night Shift Workers: Fat and Undersexed
Have you ever worked a night shift?
I let myself take an 11PM-7AM shift several years ago precisely because I considered myself a night owl. I was waking up in the afternoon anyway, I figured it wasn't really a big deal. Turned out, it was. Working nights pretty thoroughly sucks away your life-force, as nearly anyone who's done one can tell you.
Watch Out Linux, GNU Hurd Coming
Much like it's long-awaited vaporware cousin, Duke Nukem Forever, the wait will not be worth it.
PayPal Predicts the End of the Wallet By 2015
I don't think you know what non-Australians are going to say. In America everything is the same except that "Medicare" is only for old people. So what I'm saying is, "Should I get off your lawn?"

Netflix's New Web Interface Gets Thumbs Down From Users
Okay, I've never used Usenet other than looking at some of the Google archived stuff. Which has an atrocious interface. What do you people think was so great about Usenet interfaces?
English City Council "Not Ready" for Zombie Attack
Will you be laughing when the apocalypse comes, and you look back and say, "We weren't prepared, oh god, we weren't prepared...."
No! You'll be wandering the streets of Leicester, all dripping blood and rotting flesh, hungering for brains. BE PREPARED!
Carmack On the Wii U and PS Vita
I clicked it anyway, and I must admit I don't think I've ever seen a picture of a penis that big before. (The picture being big, I have nothing to say about the penis itself.)
Is that you masturbating, AC? Or did you have to search for photos of guys ejaculating? It appears to be hosted on Wikipedia, but it's not actually on the wiki page.
Although, I agree, the focus isn't very good but that's some excellent timing.
Police Say Mac Tech Installed Spyware To Photo Women
I'm surprised at how many of those are blatantly misogynistic.
Physical Pain and Emotional Pain Use Same Brain Networks
Parent is fucking nuts and deserves a boot to the head.

How about a "War on Anonymous"?
'Fee-Deduction' Malware On Android Spotted In the Wild
That sounds like a ridiculously easy way to get caught. If you wanted to catch the virus author, all you'd need to do way find out who owned the phone number.
Senate Passes 4-Year Re-Up of Patriot Act Provisions
"If there's a new way, I'll be the first in line. But it better work this time."
FSF On How To Choose a License
Then why should we even talk about their recommendations? Microsoft recommends that you run a Windows operating system. The company that makes your toothpaste recommends that you use their toothpaste. Who the fuck cares? It's just self-promotion.
Worm Descendants From Columbia Disaster Relaunched
We are talking about worms from space. Worms so tough that you can blow them up and have them tumble miles to the ground in a giant collapsing fireball...and they come out basically unharmed.
I don't know whether they caused the crash or not, but I am pretty sure that if they ever turn against us, we're fucked.
