Skeptics Would Like Media To Stop Calling Science Deniers 'Skeptics'
Allow me to share a thought with you...
Oh. Sorry, I can't seem to remember what it was.
Proposed Theme Park Would Put BBC Shows On Display
surely they could have found uk-based partners, investors and developers?
No, we've actually seen the programmes in question so, apart from Doctor Who, we be uninterested in seeing things that have been on the television for the past twenty-odd years. Domestic developers probably know that this park is something that will get a bit of interest for a few months then devolve into a ghost town, peopled by a handful of foreign tourists who've already been to Buckingham Palace.
Cameron Accuses Internet Companies Of Giving Terrorists Safe Haven
Exactly how does the idjit Cameron think an ISP is supposed to do this?
It's easy: pass a law. Whether it's actually possible or practical is irrelevant; he'll have already earned his political brownie points.

Lunar Mission One Proposes To Take Core Sample, Plant Time Capsule On the Moon
Robots can't grow beards.
Then what do you call R2D2?
The New-ish Technologies That Will Alter Your Career
It's hardly shilling if it's stated openly. I only clicked on the article for the amusing comments, otherwise I would have easily known to avoid it.
Japanese Maglev Train Hits 500kph
If only Ming were 20 years younger. He's the sort of overlord I would hail.
Real Steampunk Computer Brought Back To Life
Back when this machine was made, "computer" actually had the meaning "person that performs computations".
333 Km/h Rocket-Powered Bicycle Sets New Speed Record
Maybe this is the worlds longest skid mark...
No, that doesn't happen until you try to apply the brakes.
Police Body Cam Privacy Exploitation
Why do you hate journalism?
"Ambulance Drone" Prototype Unveiled In Holland
But as well as this, there needs to be a bigger effort made to have automatic defibrillators widely available. They're relatively reliable and easy to use yet I've only ever seen them once (in a shopping mall). Drones aren't going to be all that much help indoors without huge improvements in machine vision and navigation, but all the same they might well prove to be a godsend for people in isolated areas.*
*In my experience, large public gatherings held outdoors nearly always have at least one ambulance present.
Ex-CBS Reporter Claims Government Agency Bugged Her Computer
On the MBP the battery is under the trackpad, so that's the first thing to go if the battery starts bulging (you might find that clicks don't register when you press down on the pad).
I can't speak for all of the models but I think the logic board is usually, if not always, near the hinge side and the battery is front-right with the HDD front-left. This would make sense since the vent for the CPU fan is in the hinge.
The Man With the Golden Blood
Thinking of actual gold-colored blood, I was expecting a human/arachnid hybrid. A spider-man, if you will.
Odd, I just thought they were Swiss.
The Classic Control Panel In Windows May Be Gone
Removing control panels isn't MS's style. If past experience is anything to go by, the same ones that were in 98/NT will still be there in 10, they'll just be buried under yet another layer of new stuff. Seriously, try find network adaptor settings in 7. After you've navigated through the morass of the network and sharing centre you'll see that it's practically the self same advanced dialog that was there in 95.
Personally, I'm not averse to change but it's well past time MS just started over again instead of tacking on useless, obfuscating fluff over the top of controls that I actually need to get use.
Microsoft Develops Analog Keyboard For Wearables, Solves Small Display Dilemma
The trouble with shorthand is that it takes a lot of effort to learn, and there are quite a few ambiguities that tend to creep up when you're omitting most of the vowels. Deciphering what someone else has written often relies on context, and machines still don't do too well at that.
Inputting in shorthand does seem a neat idea, but the likes of Swiftkey have made it even less likely to appear.
BitHammer, the BitTorrent Banhammer
It still works if you post anonymously.
At CIA Starbucks, Even the Baristas Are Covert
I would have thought that all the spies would want Number 6.
CBC Warns Canadians of "US Law Enforcement Money Extortion Program"
When nationalistic Americans brag about our Bill or Rights, I wonder which version they're excited about: the version one gets from a plain reading of its text, or the twisted monstrosity that the three branches of government have foisted upon us.
I think it's the one that exists only in their heads.
Hitachi Developing Reactor That Burns Nuclear Waste
Lets not forget the gov't research labs -- it would be nice if the U.S. gov't didn't shut down such research to appease an ill-informed political interest group.
Otherwise known as "the electorate".
Hidden Obstacles For Google's Self-Driving Cars
You're a bit behind the times there chum. These days weekend binge drinking is the very epitome of fashion.
We as a nation are rightly proud that we've moved on from the times of lonely old men nursing pints of silty beer in tobacco stained pubs to a bright, new future of dynamic, young (allegedly) women clutching their high heels in one hand and a bottle of WKD in the other while their doting beau gallantly holds their hair aside as they're sick into a policeman's hat.
Truly, this a golden age.
Ask Slashdot: What Old Technology Can't You Give Up?
The wheel is pretty old; I don't think I'd want to give up that.
