The $100 3D-Printed Artificial Limb
So when someone says it would cost an arm and a leg, we now know that is $200.
Thanks for the info!
On a more serious note, anybody have an update on

Airline Pilots Rely Too Much On Automation, Says Safety Panel

Iran Says It Sent Monkey Into Space and Back
Correct, an orbit is a lot harder than just achieving an altitude.
I do however, disagree with you about the conclusion you are trying to prove with your analogy.
If you have never built any sort of a vehicle before, evolving from the toy stage through many many many steps to a formula 1 car may actually be a logical process, and therefore is relevant.
Likewise, a progression from earthbound to an orbiting space station and beyond, may include a developmental step of placing a monkey in a missile.
Student Expelled From Montreal College For Finding "Sloppy Coding"
Canada indeed has a couple laws that would be relevant
Most relevant, The Criminal Code section 342 "Unauthorized use of Computer" http://www.efc.ca/pages/law/cc/cc.342.1.html.
This criminal code section is subject to colour of right, meaning if you have permission from the system owner to perform testing, this section and owning the tools to perform this section become OK. If however you do not have permission, the investigation into this breach could expose other CCofC violations probably section 430 "Mischief", Section 351 "Possession of Break-in instruments",. as well as something from sections 354-360 which are the possessions of proceeds of crime sections.
Side note, don't break-in using any technique that involves intercepting someones communications (eavesdropping, man-in-the-middle) as that falls under privacy laws (CCofC 183-196) which are much more strict and can't be waived by the system owner, only by the sender or recipient of the communication.
IANAL, but for this case I would say the first time he found the vulnerability, there was no intent to commit the crime, he stumbled across it. The second time he was checking the other system to see if the flaw was there which seems like an unauthorized use of computer system. If he had asked the system owner (or manufacturer I suppose) if he could perform tests to ensure the flaw in the system would not be made worse by his code or his system would not be affected by the flaw, he would have been on better legal footing.
and once more IANAL
CCofC = Criminal Code of Canada
IANAL = I Am Not A Lawyer
Antivirus Software Performs Poorly Against New Threats
Running an anti-virus does not provide 100% protection, it does however provide infinite times as much protection as not running one.
Electromagnetic Automobile Suspension Demonstrated
I wonder what the impact on ride quality would be when you pick up a large piece of metallic debris, like say an exhaust system that rusted off.
This wouldn't happen often, but would be interesting when it did.

Cisco Social Software Lets You "Stalk" Customers
Yup, if you dont want people to know the information, dont post it publicly. Seems simple enough to me.
So if I don't want to get stalked I... shouldn't go outside?
Or connect to networks. But wait, aren't networks Cisco's business? Perhaps they are just after the exhibitionist market.

Plasma Plants Vaporize Trash While Creating Energy
Plasco has had a Plasma gasification pilot that has been running for a while here in Ottawa. I seem to recall over the summer news was that it produced less energy than hoped, but was still self supporting.
