Please Do Not Change Your Password
I use Keepass/KeepassX (depending on the platform I am on). It has a built-in password generator with parameters you can set (length, special characters, spaces, etc...).
Below is an actual password I use, generated out of Keepass.

Windows Annoyance Technologies.
Or, better yet:

MS Finds Security Flaw In Google Chrome Frame
I imagine 90% of your updates come from noscript. The author essentially just releases updates every few days just so that he can drive up views to his site and try to make money from it.
I guess that's his right, but it's annoying as hell and it's basically just made me stop updating noscript.
about:config, then search for "noscript.firstRunRedirection" and set it to false.
Pirate Bay Buyer Chairman Resigns
I wonder what will happen if The Pirate Bay is closed down or turned into a site for legal torrents. A lot of the other torrent sites relies on the Pirate Bay tracker. What other large, public bittorrent trackers (not just .torrent mirrors) are there?

The only thing that worked for me was to Adblock this image: http://c.fsdn.com/sd/cs_sic_controls_new.png?T_2_5_0_260a
That also blocks some other images like the friend/foe markers, but that is worth it IMHO.
Using Net Proxies Will Lead To Harsher Sentences
Not to argue with the point you are trying to make, but I have always wondered exactly just that. Is there any other use for a stereotypical ski mask other than armed robbery?
I know this is antecdotal and your question may have been rhetorical, but I live in Wisconsin and wear a ski mask when I am clearing my driveway and sidewalks with my snowblower. It is too damn cold to be outside (most likely with blowing wind) for 35-40 minutes without a mask.
Just my 2 cents.
Amazon Uses DMCA To Restrict Ebook Purchases
I have a Sony PRS-505. I use calibre to manage it. No need to deal with any DRM at all. Calibre will format text and RTF files into the LRF format for the reader. You can also use various online converters to convert from PDF to Word and then use Word/Write to convert to RTF or plain text..
Open Source Usability — Joomla! Vs. WordPress
* Joomla! for blogging is like using a PC just for playing music.
* Wordpress as a CMS solution is like using an iPOD for playing movies.
p.s. I know it wasn't the best analogy, but still...
You lost me. Could you use an analogy about cars? kthxbye!
Amazon Announces Kindle 2, With Slew of New Features
I got a Sony PRS-505 for Christmas, and it is perfect (IMHO). I use Calibre to manage it, instead of the Sony Software. I charged it when I got it, have used it at least 5 days a week since then, and haven't charged it again yet. Most of my books started out life as .TXT files, before I converted them to .LRF files. It fits in my coat pocket.
The only stickler for you would be the comic book format. It displays images in black/white only, and does not support the comic book format (.CBR/.CBZ) unless you extract them so you get the individual images.
It supports PDF, but I'm not sure how they look as I have never read one on the device.
Hope that helps.
DRM Shuts Down PC Version of Gears of War
Epic's repsonse may be "Working on it"

Will DRM Exterminate Spore?
I haven't given EA any of my money since the Need For Speed: Carbon fiasco. Going on 2 years old, and they haven't released a patch to fix video/audio syncing issues. No thanks EA, I'll pass.
