Including webcams, phones, etc, I own X cameras:
I guess it depends on whether you see your memory card as half empty or is you see it as half full, though I am not sure which option you choose to reflect which world view. I have more than ten so the choice was easier.
Senate Votes To Turn Down Volume On TV Commercials
I would like a rule that requires political ads to be played a significantly lower level than programming. A person can dream, can't they?
"Super Monkey" Security Force Used At Commonwealth Games
Isn't it just a matter of scale? Monkey security agents just have it easier. Authorized monkeys, only the monkey security agents and humans, of course. Unauthorized monkeys all other monkeys. Think of human security agents as secondary screening.
Rupert Murdoch Publishes North Korean Flash Games
One amendment... News Corp doing business with North Korea is a-ok. They would roast any other company doing so.
Think about how Fox News would treat a company that has significant ownership by a Muslim stockholder with that stockholder donating to the group building the Cordoba Center (the one Fox News called the "gound-zero mosque"), and deals with North Korea. My guess is that their description would hint at terrorism. If you have not guessed what corporation might fit this description, that's right, News Corp.
Twitter To Establish Information Security Program
Shouldn't every company be barred from misleading their customers?
Exam Board Deletes C and PHP From CompSci A-Levels
As someone who has evaluated a lot of resumes, I thought it was common practice for programmers to just list every coding/scripting language regardless of exposure to it.
Android Sales Surpass iPhone Sales
Perhaps, but there has not been major press on every news network about the secret android prototype as the next version of the Droid. Compare that with the press circus around the apple prototype. I have not seen android news pushing much beyond tech press.
The new iPhone rumors began in January, and culminating in the massive leak last month. I think this had a big impact on sales. Since Apple does not do constant incremental upgrade like other manufacturers, I think it more likely to be subject issues of waiting and pent-up demand. And, unlike with many Apple products and update cycles, the general public is pretty well informed on the new iPhone to come.
As you said, every day you read that is a slightly faster/better android phone, so some people might wait, but if upgrades are constant, it would argue for less seasonality. You buy when you need that new phone. That is not the case with the iPhone, there are big surges with the new models, which come yearly. That is seasonal adjustment that needs to be modeled into the time-series.

Take a look here http://www.worldchampioncheese.org/_apps/contest_results/ Wisconsin almost always has a maker in the top 10.
Wisconsin Designates State Microbe
They should have named Saccharomyces pastorianus the state microbe.
A Second Lessig Fair-Use Video Is Suppressed By WMG
The summary says, "...used in an unarguably fair-use manner," but the problem is that there are no definitions of fair use that can't be argued. There are guidelines, but the only way to determine that a use is fair is to argue it in a court and prevail. Sure there may be uses that are so clear cut that a reasonable person would agree that the use is fair, and prior case law helps guide decisions, but try asking a lawyer to confirm your use to be fair use, and you'll rarely get a clear answer.
I'm not saying this is not a case of fair use, but in having a system where the one way to be certain is to go to trial is going to lead to conservative behavior in users of content.
When I die, I want my body to be ...

Is Plagiarism In Literature Just Sampling?
It is only flattering if you acknowledge the one you imitate. It is not only the honorable thing to do, but in scholarship a necessity. It avoids sloppiness of thinking and provides linkages to the origins of the original thought. For example I hight doubt the author of the quote "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" was a Zen Master as the person who wrote it, Charles Caleb Colton, was a 17th century English Cleric (Wikipedia).
Much of the standing on the shoulders of giants we do may be way of inspiration, which can be hard to attribute, but it does sound like this is the case for the author in cited. She is an unrepentant plagiarist, and deserves scorn heaped upon her.
The Most I'd Pay For a Good Tablet PC Is:
I am looking for an add on to my MB Air. I had a motion computing tablet PC that was only useful to me a ereader. I loved it on the plane, but no where else. I am looking for a "Kindle-ish" sized (the larger one) tablet that has a color screen for multimedia magazine reading ( I really want my photography and video magazines electronically), and reading PDFs. If I can do some light computing that will raise its value as I can sometimes leave my laptop behind. Most of the time I would expect to have both, and my bag will still weigh less when I leave the stack of papers behind. The price range is way too low given most current readers are on the high range of the spread in the survey.
The best pizza I have ever had, I found ...
We found the best pizza any in our group had in a little town that none of use can recall the name of just north of Bordeaux. It had a thin crispy crust. One was duck and apple, another more traditional tomato and salami, and mine was with carbonara. All were fantastic. It had been baked in wood fired oven.
Scientists Create Artificial Meat
Cattle are one of the most successful species on the planet. Why? Because, they threw their lot in with humans. Humans do don't care about preserving something with which they have no relationship. It takes resources to keep cows, and few to none will do it unless they is an economic benefit. Therefore, one must wonder is PETA's real motive to drive cows extinct in their drive to save cows from humans?
Jetman Attempts Intercontinental Flight
To extend your reasoning, actually, there is a single continent of Afro-eurasia because of the continuous landmass joined at the Isthmus of Suez until, as you say, somebody decided to split it... so jumping from Africa to Europe is no less intercontinental than crossing the Panamanian land bridge. Actually, it has been proposed that this is a single continent, just look up continent in wikipedia
So really there should be only 4 olympic rings since the olympic bigots leave out Antarctica, of course, there has not been a team from there. Maybe there should be only 3 since Australia is hardly more than a big island. To be fair though, I believe the rings represent world regions, rather than continents, even if continents is the word they use
Radar Beats GPS In Court — Or Does It?
Wait. I assuming your values are correct as I have not read the original article.
Your equation is fine, but you missed a piece and I hope this legal precedent did not use this same logic. What about units here? 2040 ft/30 sec is 68 ft/sec which is 46.4 miles/hr
I guess you are right he was speeding, by 1.4 miles/hr
Large-Scale Mac Deployment?
We use DeployStudio, a freeware project http://www.deploystudio.com/ . Support for DS is pretty from the community, or you can buy training, but if you want to go with a vendor product JAMF Casper suite makes a great product, that we did not think was outrageously expensive.
E-book readers ...
And in my fields, often, color. I would use an ereader more for periodicals than books, but I really need color.
New Company Seeks to Bring Semantic Context To Numbers
I used 58.44 and molecular weight and all top ten hits told me what molecule I was dealing with. Same with 58.44 g/mol. You are right, numbers require context or 58.44 could be anything, and most of the time a generic search without units the context would be wrong. I am sure that I have used 58.44 outside the context of chemistry much more often than I have in it even though I spent many years in a molecular biology lab.
