How to handle a wifi leech camping in your store?

New Hampshire Cops Use Taser On Woman Buying Too Many iPhones
That's what they should have done here.
Stay Home When You're Sick!
Among those who have the luxury of a stay-at-home spouse or for whom daycare expenses are not a consideration, I'll bet a lot more people come into the office sick during the summer and school vacation weeks.
Massachusetts Plans To Keep Track of Where Your Car Has Been
As a lifelong Massachusetts resident, I find this abuse of technology and our privacy rights appalling if not altogether surprising. What was equally if not more disheartening, however, was the level of *support* for the initiative expressed by readers of the Boston Herald. Yes, I understand that it's the Herald and what that means demographically. But it's still sad to see so many of my fellow Bay Staters cheering enthusiastically as even more of their rights are stripped away.
Heroic Engineer Crashes Own Vehicle To Save a Life
He's a hero and deserves praise, no doubt about it. But I think there's still room to discuss whether what he did was fair to the passengers in his car, whose safety was obviously put at risk.

Internet Tax Approved By Louisiana House
Of course it's tough to vote against "protecting the children," but if this expenditure is necessary it should take a place in line with every other legitimate need and wait for its share of the income tax. Special interests are going to be lined up around the block to try this one in La.
Google Considers Taking Beta Tag Off Gmail
At last count (last fall) almost half of Google apps were labeled beta, so it's not just a few they're talking about. At that time, Google offered a convoluted explanation for the practice that included: "We believe beta has a different meaning when applied to applications on the Web, where people expect continual improvements in a product."

"Clear" Laptop Found, In the Same Locked Office
FTA: "Beer said the airport office is always locked, so if the laptop was removed, someone would have needed a key to return it." .... That ought to at least narrow the list of dumbasses who may have taken it home (hopefully) and put it back.
