Under no circumstances should they get away with it, even if that means taking out 3 others!

Is the Porsche Carrera GT Too Dangerous?
I live in the boonies & am very tired of people burning rubber here. Burn it in your own back yard!
The Quietest Place On Earth Will Cause You To Hallucinate In 45 Minutes
I've never been anywhere that quiet - can only compare it to my first few times in a dark-room.
While trying to move film from canisters to tanks for processing my eyes got sore. Took a while to realise I was scrunching them shut - trying to keep the dark out?
Google To Block Local Chrome Extensions On Windows Starting In January
and if Google apps stop working on Firefox you'll switch to Office365?
The First 'Practical' Jetpack May Be On Sale In Two Years
One advantage the Martin has is that the blades are enclosed. I'd have better luck getting permission to land a Martin in the carpark than a Mosquito.
30 minutes at max speed of around 60 mph : would probably be enough for me to do a return trip on one tank - if only the damn airport wasn't in the way!
(Not that I have a spare US$150k)
Remember the Computer Science Past Or Be Condemned To Repeat It?

You get to keep a little more privacy than with the NSA version
AOC's 21:9 Format, 29" IPS Display Put To the Test At 2560x1080
Just so long as testing takes into account the fact the the end user will probably have a much lower spec machine/screen/connection (& won't have root/admin access). It might work great on a developers machine, but be a steaming dogpile for the intended user!
Google's Crazy Lack of Focus: Is It Really Serious About Enterprise?
When I can do partial-word searches on Gmail and Drive I'll believe Google is interested in corporate customers.
Google is primarily a search company & you can't do partial-word searches on email - what's up with that?

Some Windows XP Users Can't Afford To Upgrade
It's not always the software that is the problem - drivers connecting a $100,000 piece of equipment may not be available for current versions of the O/S.
It may net even be possible to get them written if the company no longer trades, or refuses to support older equipment.
$10,000 may well be the pointy end of the problem!
HP Launches Moonshot
mid-afternoon in GNU Zealand :-)
HP Launches Moonshot
:-) 1st time accepted, 2nd or 3rd submission I think. Sad how the quality of stories seems to have declined over the last few years, but the quality of the posts & the turns they take still sometimes surprise me. Without their seasoned contributors, this site would fade away in no time. I hope the people running it recognise that.
HP Launches Moonshot
I don't know about Slashdot's priorities when it comes to deciding what makes the cover, but I submitted in good faith.
I'm not a fan of HP by any means & we have truck-loads of their servers at work. The concept for this sounded interesting & maybe there is a place for it in the 'cloud'.
What we really need at work is big kick-ass servers like IBM's new Power 7 machines (IBM - please direct debit my account ASAP)
