Even the Author of the Patriot Act Is Trying To Stop the NSA
What makes you think state legislatures would be willing to do such a thing? They suffer from the same malaise, writ small.
US Senator Proposes Bill To Eliminate Overtime For IT Workers
Red Hat is based in Research Triangle Park, situated between Raleigh and Durham and I think SAP has a campus there as well; I believe Microsoft has a campus in Charlotte, to name a few.
AMD Sale to Dell Rumored
Dang, I was just going to suggest this. They purchased a chip outfit for their iOS needs, why not one for their Mac line? They could even keep the AMD name: Apple Mints Dough

Why Top Linux Distros Are For Different Users
With Vista and probably Win7, WoW wants to install to the users\public\games\ folder, not in Program Files. I ran WoW on a laptop that had been upgraded from XP to Vista and on either a patch or the Wrath install (sorry, don't remember now, it's been a while), the install routine prompted to be allowed to move the installation from program files to users\public\games\. User info was stored by account under the wonderfully named WTF subfolder, prior to the Battle.net migration. Now, patch information, at least, is stored under the user's documents folder. I haven't poked around enough to see if any user specific stuff is stored there.
Cursive Writing Is a Fading Skill — Does It Matter?
My mother was forced to change to right handed writing and they made her practice - the result: beautiful script that was completely unreadable. They tried to make me change as well, but I wasn't having anything of it. Being left handed, cursive was more effort that was it was worth, so I developed a quite legible block print (incidentally, taking after my right handed father, who was an engineer). In short, penmanship is a Medieval art in a modern world.

Is Sat-Nav Destroying Local Knowledge?
Only for people who use it who would have gotten by just fine without it. For people like my wife, who lack the gene for direction sense, it's a godsend. For me, don't need it, won't use it - just another distraction, to compete with the plethora of things that already distract us in the car - cell phone, ipod, the Whopper that you are mostly wearing by the time you are done and the inability to find a decent block of music on the radio (hence the ipod).
Heh, the captcha is "quantity"
