The end of man has to start somewhere.

Perhaps they could outsource fixing Healthcare.gov to the prisons?

top Aussie Company Planning To Use Drones For Textbook Delivery
The text books I remember were all freaking heavy and don't "quadracopters" (six-bladed quadracopters in this case by the looks of it) generally have a very limited payload?

Come on now. They don't want to put themselves under too much pressure.

top Microsoft Integrating Xbox One Advertising With Kinect To Profile Users For Ads
Why does my Xbone keep serving me ads for lotion and tissues? Surely it can see I already have plenty at hand.

top Nokia: the Sun Can't Charge Your Phone
Like many in the developed world I carry a considerable surplus fuel stockpile on my abdomen which it would be nice (and perhaps healthy) to take advantage of.
Maybe a combination if an in-body blood sugar energy harvesting rig and inductive charging coils on each hip? If your fuel stockpile is running low then make it a solar charging rig with a symbiotic algae/cyanobacteria in the skin to produce sugars from sunlight.
top The Chinese Town Where Old Christmas Lights Go
Surely in this case "the Jerusalem for Christmas tree light recycling" would be more fitting?
top Spanish Court Rules In Favor of P2P Engineer
The name BitTorrent is obviously a thinly-veiled allusion to piracy.
Pirate steal pieces of eight. *Bit*s come eight to a pack. Water forms *Torrent*s. The sea is made of water. Pirates sail the seven seas. And so: BitTorrent. That judge must be blind (or bought off by Big Piracy) not to see that BitTorrent exists solely for piratical purposes.

Sorry to inform you, but prior art for this exists. I took a photo of it which I can send to you if you like.
top Smallest space my belongings could fit (unbroken):
Most objects occupy about the same volume broken as whole. Unless the
item has a sealed cavity then isn't broken/unbroken quite irrelevant? I don't imagine too many people possess a proportionally significant volume of CRTs, vacuum tubes, vacuum flasks, gas canisters, etc.
If the poll is meaning to ask what is the volume of the smallest
bounding shape (box, sphere, convex hull, etc.) which can contain one's possession then the unbroken qualifier makes sense, but question or poll options need rewording.

Dude, if you want to see Cthulhu all you need is a deep sea submersible. Yog-Sothoth on the other hand...

I got a paper cut from one. I nearly died.
top More Photoshopped Evidence In Apple v. Samsung
But your Windows 95 desktop wasn't mobile. Transferring those icons to a mobile device required all the inventive genius of Apple to achieve.
top Ridley Scott To Direct New
Blade Runner Movie
I'd quite like to see a truer adaption of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. While it obviously shares much in common with Blade Runner its story and world have (to me at least) a very different, and just as appealing, flavour to Blade Runner.
