NJ Court: Sending a Text Message To a Driver Could Make You Liable For Crash
Except regardless of what you do, I would still expect you to not look at your phone while driving.
I would also send the rest of whatever I was going to say. How often do you read a text, decide you will respond to it later and then forget all about it. It's YOUR responsibility to drive legally. You aren't force to check your messages while driving. If it's that important or you just can't wait then you need to pull over.
GoDaddy Goes Down, Anonymous Claims Responsibility
I use HawkHost.com for my sites. Been using them for a few years, never had any issues. Slowly switching my domains over to my own box at softlayer, but that's just because I want the control.
Dutch ISP Discovers 140,000 Customers With Default Password
Bell Canada used to use this password and no one would ever change it. It was kind of funny being able to tell people what their password was. They've recently made slightly better passwords, but it was a good couple of years of abc123.
Diablo 3 Banhammer Dropped Just Before RMAH Goes Live
What about someone who doesn't have constant internet access. Or those who want to play when the servers go down all day every Tuesday? How about trying to play a single player game with a ping over 1000ms, not because your connection is bad, but because their servers can't handle the traffic?
Still think it's not that big of a deal?
BitTorrent Traffic Falls In the U.S.
Not to mention seed boxes that can be purchased for cheap. Why waste your home upstream, when you can use a 100mbit connection to download and easily transfer it to your home computer with ssh/scp/sftp.
Those companies must love seeing news like this. There's always another way..
TSA's mm-Wave Body Scanner Breaks Diabetic Teen's $10K Insulin Pump
The article used the wrong word. She's 16, what the hell do you expect?
Also, what do your over paranoid habits have to do with anything?
U.S. Suspends JEEP Aid
not that I don't agree with you, but part of the problem is the customers. people are idiots, which would be fine but they are also self entitled assholes about it. i've never worked in a call center but i have worked in a retail environment in the past and hated dealing with the phones for that very reason.
reading scripts for support type things is the devil though...
Minefold Launches Minecraft Game Hosting Service
Exactly. Not that I would switch because I PREFER to do all of the administration myself, but there is a lot left to be desired from what they are offering and considering the price ranges, it's definitely not at a point where it would be worth it for your average users. Interesting take on things though.
Hotmail's Spam Filter: The Best In the Business?
This, not that I really use either service but I haven't seen much of a difference between the two.
It matter more where and how you use your e-mail than what spam filter you use. That and everyones definition of spam is different.
Verizon Announces Pay-Per-Use 'Turbo Boost' For Smartphones
My first computer had that button. I never could actually figure out what it did. Of course that never stopped me from randomly pressing it hoping something awesome would happen.
BT Ordered To Block Usenet Binaries Index
You are right, your analogy makes perfect sense.
Since the ISP is not selling internet access but just access to usernet which allows their end users can pirate content. They should absolutely be held liable for something they have no control over.
Google+ Runs Out of Disk Space, Swamps Users With Notifications
I'm using it with Opera and haven't noticed anything not work, but I don't really use it much.
Facebook is terrible for being compatible with Opera though.
Microsoft's Hottest New Profit Center: Android
I'm surprised they haven't already honestly.
I'm also surprised that none of the big manufacturers did.
Patent wars are getting ridiculous.

Amazon Responds To "App Store" Lawsuit From Apple
I vote for this or Apptorium.
PSN Outage Continues, Console Hack Claimed To Be Responsible
From what I've read the Xbox Live outage didn't happen for everyone.
It doesn't matter though, this is a completely different issue because of the security concerns. There no point in comparing the 2 services...
Markets For IPv4 Addresses Emerging
Yeah, but as the article says, this may help get businesses to move on to IPv6 quicker.
Pirated Android App Shames Freeloaders
While initially I thought this was a good idea, there are some serious issues which others have pointed out.
Also, the summary says you can get the pirated one from an "unofficial Android app markets", which leads me to wonder, are people actually aware that they are pirating the software or would your average user just think that this is a free app?
(I don't actually know anything about Androids App markets)
Man Finds Divorce Papers, Tax Docs On "New" Laptop
I'm not saying companies should be able to sell used items as new, but 1/2 price for an item that was returned because a customer didn't like the colour is a bit retarded.
You want to be able to return an item for full price but not let them sell it at that same price again? Seriously?
Man Finds Divorce Papers, Tax Docs On "New" Laptop
They usually are (especially if they have the sticker seals with logos, etc on them), but you also have to remember that a lot of the employees working at these stores don't give a shit and are only getting paid minimum wage. Not to mention a seriously lack of communication between those doing the returns and those who are doing the restore on the system.
I'm not saying it's right, if it was a returned system the customer should have been informed, the employee's should have restore the system and so forth, but shit like this does happen.
Mind you, the summary says "computer fair" which screams scam to me, so honestly, I'm not surprised by this.
