Coca-Cola Reserves a Massive Range of MAC Addresses
So all three are right. I posted looking at it as them using one out of sixteen million available. /8 is looking at it as having 16 million unique addresses. /16 is looking at it as half of the bits available.
Coca-Cola Reserves a Massive Range of MAC Addresses
They were allocated a single 3-byte OUI, or prefix. When you realize that 16 million OUIs were originally available, it's like making a big deal that a company was granted a /24 IP range.
Researchers Claim Facebook Is 'Dead and Buried' To Many Young Users
Just wait for College to start. Of the social media tools available, there's nothing better for calendar and social event management.
How do you quickly invite tens, dozens, hundreds of people to a party, rally, debate, play, show, election orsports event and keep them in the loop for time, location, theme updates? What tool do you use to maintain membership to a dozen groups, academic, social, or otherwise?
There's a lot of fluff to Facebook, but for certain use cases, it is untouched.
Ask Slashdot: What Review Sites Do You Consult For IT Equipment?
My go-to sites are those which go beyond the benchmark and get real-world data beyond a 3-minute number crunch.
HardOCP had their custom heatsink with the thermo-probe for more reliable temperature measurement.
Techreport has been phenomenal over the years in this. They built a custom PSU tester to test the loads of any or all of the rails at once. Then they had their "inside the second" articles diving in to frame latency, which led to better Radeon drivers. More recently, and still running, is their SSD deep-cycle test, which is already showing blocks beginning to fail on SSDs.
The innovation factor and time taken to really dive in are things I don't see elsewhere.

Weebots: Driveable Robots For Babies Who Need Them
Who needs to train them to ever get up and walk? Just let them sit in larger and larger, more responsive chairs. They'll fly our jets with better reaction time than our top guns.

Mercury Turns Out To Be a Weird Little World
Does anybody else think this resembles the result of putting a small, EMPTY, potato chip bag in the microwave for 3-4 seconds? The arcing on the metal instantly melts the plastic, which globs up due to surface tension and shrinks. Try it, you'll like it.
Ask Slashdot: Info On Upcoming Handhelds?
I can give you a list of about a dozen phones which fit the bill, other than number 11.
You'd be better off with an external Li-Ion battery like Energizer/XPAL. They come in many sizes, the smallest of which holds enough juice to charge an average smartphone to full at least once, in my use usually twice. You may also look into the inductive mats. The battery capacity is reduced a bit, but if you are typically listening to your music in your car or at your desk, you can leave the phone on the mat and it will stay juiced up.

Synchronize data between Linux, OS X, and Windows?
I use dropbox http://www.getdropbox.com/. I use it to sync my Windows 7 PC, Linux VM, and Mac in the lab at school. It's a pretty simple interface. You install the program on each computer and it gives you a dropbox folder linked to your account. Any files you put in there are instantly synced to the dropbox server and the other systems if they're on, or once they're turned on. It has a public folder so you can share a link with others, and you can share a synced folder with another dropbox user. It was recommended to me by my teacher at the beginning of the semester and I wasn't interested, but I checked it out and have found great utility from it. It even allows you to log in from any computer to the website and upload and download files from the web interface. First 2GB are free, and I think they have plans for 50 or 100GB accounts.
