Tim Cook: If You Don't Like Our Energy Policies, Don't Buy Apple Stock
Of course they voted it down, their energy policy is good marketing for their target audience. The bottom line is still the reason for the policy.
Ghostwriter Reveals the Secret Life of WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange
I've seen and heard his interviews. Sure, it falls quite short of personally knowing him and there is certainly a mask of some sort to portray how he wants the public to perceive him rather than a reflection of his real personality. However, that is the vibe I always got from him. There is a limit to how many people we can know personally. To be able to function within those limits we have instincts. Empirical evidence should be sought when possible and opinions based on instincts should be held loosely. The events surrounding this man are quite important to our world and it's worth thinking about and having an opinion. His motives and personality do play a role in how much trust one should put in the man and insights like this are about the best we have without scheduling a meeting with him.
Quite a few of the stories I've seen there so far seem to have a heavy "conspiracy theory" spin to them. I could see this posted there, only it would have a line about O'Hagan being an NSA shill. That being said, Slashdot has been in decline for a while and I will be heading over to SoylentNews to read, comment, and support that website after I am done here.
FCC Planning Rule Changes To Restore US Net Neutrality
And then prices go up across the board and the struggling single mom with internet access so her kids can do homework gets to subsidize the entertainment of the middle class. Brilliant.
Iconic Predator-Prey Study In Peril
Don't act like this is something new. Incomprehensible summaries have been part of slashdot since the beginning.
California Regulator Seeks To Shut Down 'Learn To Code' Bootcamps
If that is what they are promising and the statistics don't match there are plenty of laws about fair marketing and fraud that would open them up to well more than a $50,000 fine.
US Forces Coursera To Ban Students From Cuba, Iran, Sudan, and Syria
Historically, all campaign finance reform does is make barriers to anyone who has a voice they wish to get out. Barriers that only the "1%" and their team of lawyers can navigate through. Guess I'm playing my cards as a nut job libertarian here, but this is one area more laws and regulation just make the problem they are trying to solve worse.
Court Says Craigslist Sperm Donor Must Pay Child Support
Parental responsibilities come hand-in-hand with parental rights. Sometimes giving up the rights has a greater benefit for the child than the loss of the responsibility. For instance, leaving a child with two loving parents in an unbroken home rather than the child dealing with the stress of shared custody can be more valuable than some cash.
Romanian Bitcoin Entrepreneur Steps In To Pay OpenBSD Shortfall
No one is going to pay $20k of REAL money for bitcoins
Right, but many people will pay $20k of the "money" issued by the Federal Reserve.
OpenBSD Looking At Funding Shortfall In 2014
At least this time he didn't eat it
Chinese Bitcoin Exchange Accused of Faking Trade Data
Not that I endorse Mt. Gox (quite the opposite, really), but can we stop trowing "Magic the Gathering Online Exchange" into the conversation. The code for the trading platform designed for cards and the original owner/developer are long gone. The name is the only thing left. There are plenty of things to criticize the exchange over without this ad hominem.
French Team Implants First Long-Term Artificial Heart
His small European heart grew three sizes that day.
More Students Learn CS In 3 Days Than Past 100 Years
Two hours passed before anyone pointed out my mistake? Slashdot sure has changed.
More Students Learn CS In 3 Days Than Past 100 Years
Grammatical oversight ignored, if what they were trying to say is true I can't imagine that it would not be true for 1,000 yrs, 1 million years... 100 Years? Were is their sensationalism?
US Issues 30-Year Eagle-Killing Permits To Wind Industry
I'm not sure that would help eagles. I believe they rely on sight more than sound when finding and targeting small mammals as prey.
Obama Praises NSA But Promises To Rein It In
Well, while he was researching what the Tea Party is about on the google, he probably missed the analysis from the Yale professor that showed Tea Party supporters are slightly more scientifically literate than the non-tea party population. He probably thinks Tea Party members are only Tea Party because they lack the enlightenment that he, and those in his social bubble that all share his world view, have. Anyone who disagrees with him is clearly an idiot. I'd leave him a link for the mentioned analysis, but he knows how to use Google.
Tesla Would Be Proud: Wireless Charging For Electric Cars Gets Closer To Reality
I doubt that electric car consumers are different than gaosoline car consumers. They are more worried about what people think about their car purchase than the economic impact of the fuel (ie big shinny SUVs). Electric car owners cars say "I love the Earth more than you" and if they don't have to touch a dirty plug, all the better for them.
App Detects Neo-Nazis Using Their Music
I suppose it depends on your definition of "right wing". Pretending that there is some sort of progressive spectrum from say the GOP to Libertarian to this is ridiculous. Most in the US tend to Define Right and Left as how much Freedom is protected or Regulation is imposed. Neo-Nazism is about hateful oppression of minorities. That data point has no place on this spectrum. Now this article is, of course, about Germany. I really don't have direct experience with politics there or what the general idea about what is right and left there, but being strongly US leaning website, you can understand the reaction to TFS using "far-right". Calling it left-wing is equally as ridiculous.
Playing the game of trying discredit and put a label on a world view you don't agree with on a movement few can stomach is just childish. Stop legitimizing their hate buy saying its just a few degrees away from a position a very large amount of people hold.
Comet ISON Survives Perihelion (Barely)
I know they have some strange doctrines, but I don't think anything like that is part of their beliefs.

You just put your lips together

NSA Planned To Discredit Radicals Based On Web-Browsing Habits
prostitution is the most honest exchange that exists between the two genders
Perhaps the landscape would be different if it were legal and regulated, but as it is today, no... It is one of the most disgusting parts of our culture. The average age of entrance into prostitution is 14. Young girls are psychologically manipulated or outright kidnapped and for forced to have sex with strangers. The money exchanged does not end up in the girls pocket.
