top Drive-by Android Malware Exploits Unpatchable Vulnerability
The still most widely deployed version, 2.3, is fine. At least if you don't run apps with ads, but then, there's no hope left for you anyway.
Nobody mentions which version introduced the bug in the browser, but I'm guessing it's 3.1. But i know very little.

top Kansas To Nix Expansion of Google Fiber and Municipal Broadband
The market is already regulated, and it did not prevent that. Because you all are clueless about current regulations as you will be on future regulation.
We already have regulation against a politician doing seemly dumb things for the people. This is obviously a back room deal with some telco or do no evil Google. Yet, no place it was mentioned WHO signed/proposed the bill.
Unless you learn to pay attention to that little detail, which is the basis of current regulation, by votes or criminal prosecution, how do you expect more regulation to do any difference when the basic ones are already ignored?

top Digital Textbook Startup Kno Was Sold For $15 Million
That is interesting. I'd guess they do not like your book because it is a dreaded school assignment to them. Maybe you should go for the schools and allow them to distribute for free after a small fee? that way it would be easier to enforce...
And I am curious if you add a plea against piracy on the book?

top Blackberry 10 Sends Full Email Account Credentials To RIM
You may have already purchased such device if you have an Android.
Wifi passwords are sent to Google by default, on every device, email passwords sent to Motorola (owned by Google) on all Motorola devices (except for gmail... Guess they optimized since they already have those)
On ios, who knows? It's closed and phone home all the time.
top Linux 3.10 Officially Released
They are dumb. Release the driver as opensource, and depends on the closed 3rd party code, shipped as the current binaryblob.
Open source devs would waste their time implementing open source version of those components, freeing nvidia ofof paying royalties in the future.

top Ask Slashdot: How To Handle a Colleague's Sloppy Work?
Lear all you can. how can he do less work and not create bugs? (if he creates bugs, stop fixing his work and let the problem fix itself)
All in all, he is you tomorrow. You will get like him. Maybe there's a reason for that. maybe it's just indifference that comes with age. either way, i'd recomend you to learn his ways and start sooner, for as soon as you start that, you will get better pay, more respect, and a youger idiot to clean up after you.
top Was Google's Motorola Mobility Acquisition a Mistake?
Sure it was.
- let's buy some crap for 12bi so we don't have to pay a couple billions in patent licenses.
It was because they wanted this money and they lost. They literally gambled with company money.

top Startup Founder Plays Tech Press Like a Fiddle
This pretty much debunked the myth that being a woman in tech is difficult and that is kjust because women opt to do other things that we don't see them around. And that the whole issue is around only for a few individuals special interests.
What i really want to see is someone pull that coverage by being a 50-60 yr old male white developer. The only group that really is absent in tech despite trying.

top Ask Slashdot: New To Linux; Which Distro?
aymous coward couldn't be wronger.
Ubuntu makes you dumb. period.
your goal is to find a distro with good documentation. if you are 200% serious, I'd say start with openBSD. not Linux perse, but it's the only place where documentation issues are considered high priority bugs. also you will learn a lot more about best practices (the main reason I think the parent is being obnoxious as suggestion Ubuntu for someone who is clearly already abusing sudo more than he/she should)
also, I'd say 90% of
/. started with slack ware, moved to red hat or debian based distros, then played with linux-from-scratch.
lastly, threat every choice as life threatening
:-) ...installer asks you which file system? research the hell out of every option. do not install Linux pressing next-next-next-finish.
