Ubuntu Tablet OS To Take On Android, iOS

Earth Officially Home To 7 Billion Humans
This planet has enough resources to sustain billions more but not with the world sliced up and walled up by political self interests and governments that do squat for it's people. One world order? Hell if I know the answer but I do know what we have now isn't it. Suggestions?

Canadian Ice Shelves Halve In Six Years
We have had enough of voodoo science and liberal agenda dweebs! The answer is obvious why the ice is melting. Bird poop and pee! That's right migrating sea birds land on the ice and after a meal of fish poop and pee to their hearts content and that my friends warms the ice and that is why its melting.

Congress May Permit Robot Calls To Cell Phones
Already happens in some states. I have had robo calls (in AZ) from political campaigns. I trace back the number and inform the jackasses I will never vote for anyone who invades my privacy like that.

Microsoft Reveals More Windows 8 Details
I'm seriously wondering if any of this will matter in a few more years. The PC becomes the tablet becomes the smart phone becomes the cloud becomes the....what exactly?

I totally expect to see integration between Windows and Linux soon and I'm not talking WINE.

Court Rules Sending Too Many Emails Is "Hacking"
Good point but my question would be what if the barrage of emails were ongoing and almost non-stop? Would that not constitute a willful 'mail bombing' with intent to shutdown their email server? If they are not able to, as you say "empty their mailboxes in a reasonable manner," then the intent is to do harm.
RIM Helping UK Police Track Down Rioters
And I still prefer "potentially violating individual's civil rights as well as privacy laws" than protecting a bunch of fuck ups that use any damn excuse to loot and burn! How about shop keepers rights to not have their business burned down? How about peoples right to walk down the street and not be beat up by a bunch of assholes? Where are their civil rights you fuckwit?

IBM Watson To Replace Salespeople and Cold-Callers
As someone who has worked in sales most of my life and managed sales support teams I see one flaw in the plan. Watson is logical. People are not. Anyone in sales knows the vast ocean of illogical reasoning that comes spewing from peoples mouths during the sales process. Anyone in IT has their favorite stories of dealing with people who either are clueless or just temporally insane at that moment.
