Judge Rules Against China In 'Green Dam' Suit
It's been a while since I studied that era, but as I remember, the last time Germany invaded Poland, the international community tolerated it rather well. I don't think anyone really got their panties in a twist until they ran through France.
Glen Beck Warns Viewers Not To Use Google
I don't understand why he can't set the record straight. It just seems awfully suspicious that he can't offer any evidence counter to those heinous accusations made against him. It almost makes me think he is hiding something.

But they get so lonely out there...
OS I'd Most Like To See Make a Comeback
os/2 warp 4 was beastly.
Ubuntu Linux 10.04 Review (Lucid Lynx)
You can either change them manually through gconf-editor or use one of the non-new themes.
Website Mass-Bans Users Who Mention AdBlock
I used adblock on /. right up until they gave me that option. I don't use it, but just having them offer it conspicuously on the front page is enough to make me want to support them. :)
Is OS/2 Coming Back?
My dad was one of them. :) He still has all the old disks in his closet, and occasionally watches youtube videos about how great it was.

Google Serves a Cease and Desist On Android Modder
Exactly. They may not be the internet messiah that some people like to think that they are, but they are better than any huge corporation that I can think of. Also, I don't think that MS was ever not an evil company, I thought they started out ripping people right from the get-go with DOS. I could be wrong though.
Either way, show me a company of Google's stature (or even close to it) that does better than they do as far as the whole "do no evil thing." With the enormous temptation it must sometimes be to manipulate markets unethically for Google's own benefit, I think they do a damn good job.
Now that would be brilliant, an html5 plugin for ie8. Open source and made by google. WTB.
Heart Monitors In Middle School Gym Class?
That movie was so awesome.
I bet our youth would feel a hell of a lot less entitled to everything if we instituted the battle royale system here...
IE8 Beats Other Browsers In Laptop Battery Life
It needs that extra battery life, considering it's also the slowest browser.
Indie Game Dev On the Positive Side To DRM
I don't mine the intentions of DRM. I'm all for game developers getting payed for what they make. The reality, though, is that the drm gets cracked and the game gets pirated anyway. So the end result is that the game costs more to make in order to put the DRM in, the user experience is often worse from having to deal with said DRM, and the pirates still do what they do. So nobody wins.
At some point (and it may have arguably already happened with some games) the consumer will be able to a get better game by NOT paying for it, simply because they will be able to find a cracked version that doesn't treat them like a criminal. (ie phoning home regularly for security, getting pissy about being reinstalled, etc.)

Fear of Porn URL Exposure Discourages Firefox 3 Upgrade
Don't want people to know you are a pervert? There's an add-on for that.
Will Mainstream Media Embrace Adblockers?
When ads stop being obnoxious people won't see the need to block them anymore.
I generally run without an ad-blocker, but when I do I specifically allow ads like those from google. It's hard to begrudge a site a small, unobtrusive column of text for ads. Run flashy, bandwidth-heavy ads though, and I'll likely only see the first one before I block them all from your site. :P
Best Free Open Source Software For Windows
Paint.net instead of the GIMP?
Windows 7 RTM Reviewed & Benchmarked
It's no longer 2002. Install Ubuntu and you will NEVER have to use the CLI. That's right. NEVER. I like it because you can do some neat things with it, but then I use CLI in windows too. But is it required for normal operation? No. It's not.
Do I think Linux is retard-friendly on the level of windows? No. But It's come a long way. And the old CLI complaint has officially died. Buried next to driver support qq and native-app woes.
Don't like? Fine. But leave your FUD at the door please.
Microsoft Acknowledges Linux Threat To Windows
