Geeks.com Online Shop Has Closed
I used to go to Compgeeks.com for Cobweb Corner, but they kind of removed that section about 10 years ago, and I stopped visiting the site. As many have mentioned the deals to be had were mediocre, and usually refurb equipment. This was fine in the days that the difference between a refurb and a new computer was significant, but now, they haven't adapted, so therefore they become Ancient History.
Tesla To Build Its Own Battery-Swap Stations
It is a start at building an battery/gas station infrastructure between SF and LA.
The deal breaker for me is having to come back the same route to pick up your original battery. What if i'm not actually coming back on I-5 between SF and LA?

EA Responds To Its Appearance In the 'Worst Company In America' Poll
I thought they did offer refunds for people that were unable to connect to the servers during launch?
Virgin Launches Glass-Bottomed Plane
What's funny about this April Fools Joke is Delta recently announced a Glass Bottom Jet feature where you can see what mountains, and cities are underneath you while flying. If you log onto Gogo In-Flight Internet while on board a Delta flight and use the Flight tracker on the iPhone/iPad you can see the attractions and terrain on your iPhone/iPad as you near them during the flight
I most look forward to flying with ...
It's $100 for 5 years. Above and beyond Pre-check you also get to use the Global Entry kiosks at major airports where incoming passengers come from international destinations (LAX, JFK, MIA, DTW, to name a few)
Student Expelled From Montreal College For Finding "Sloppy Coding"
Just because he had an Islamic name they thought he was more than a college student trying to make things easier for students in general. He did the right thing, reporting the flaw, an this is what happens?
The administration are idiots
Sensor Networks In San Francisco Finds Parking Spots
This was a senior design project of mine. Didn't have the resources to implement it, with only a $500 budget, we decided to change it to telling how many parking spaces are in a garage depending on how many spaces were initially available and how many cars had entered.
What's Keeping You On XP?
A lot of software I used still has not been updated for Vista/Win 7. I figure in about 5 years I won't need that software anymore. After that, I'll switch to whatever the latest is, which will probably just be Win 8!
Linux Kernel Power Bug Is Fixed
I am also looking forward to this, though now my battery probably has 200 cycles on it, and I'd probably get better battery life by replacing the battery instead :-)

Boot Linux In Your Browser
This will be a great interactive training tool. Everyone could access it on the browser. It would be hard to mess things up, and even if you did, just refresh the browser tab.
Boot Linux In Your Browser
Well yes, that would be the obvious way to do it. But imagine a world where we all did the obvious. :)

Asus, Gigabyte To Replace All Sandy Bridge Boards
This was the policy for the FDIV bug. People found out that Intel would only replace it if they were using the CPU that uses the floating point unit extensively. Those users that didn't use it extensively still claimed that they would use it, and thats why there was a big fiasco. This time around... Fix it, get it over with...
Testing Mobile Phones For Controlling Space Missions
I don't think putting a complex OS out there like Android/iOS or whatever is the solution in this space (pun intended) is the way to go. The custom solution having a long design cycle, will be completely optimized for power and speed. Depending on the workload, the generic phone hardware can be used but what advantage that is gained by using commodity hardware is lost in the lack of optimization of power and speed.
As long as you can live with larger overhead in the operating system and keeping within a power budget of the satellite design, sure phone hardware can be used. Then again, using an OS like these phone OSs is just overkill!
Should Employees Buy Their Own Computers?
Intel has mentioned that this is the future. Intel is very security conscious and I'm sure they will be forcing a home IT build with VPN access along with what they have already, PGP disk encryption. In the future, I'm also sure Remote-wipe will be part of the process.
For the employee, this allows them to choose the laptop that suits them
For the employer, it allows them to push a partial cost of the laptop to the employee. What will be burdensome is the fact that IT will have to support so many builds and hardware.
So I guess, initially the employee will be able to purchase a few subsidized business grade laptops... I'd definitely buy a heavily discounted Thinkpad ;-)
Think about this... All business files/documents are stored in a data center under the employers controll, only to be accessed via VPN, or LAN (on employer's site)...

Google Pushes Openness Over Rooting
That's rediculous. I was able to apply a 10% tmobile discount to my bill (negotiated by my company). All I had to do was change my billing date to fall in line with a certain business billing date. I did not have to sign a new contract.
