Italian Researchers Demonstrate 'Powerloader' Suit
a very long time.
The power suit isn't the issue.

Why Is US Broadband So Slow?
lucky you. time warner in NY charges $50 a month. Comcast in Mass charges $50 a month. Verizon Fios in both charges $50 a month.
In all 4 cases speeds vary and connections lag.(I can't play online games in Massachusetts without significant lag).
WhatsApp Founder Used Unchangable Airline Ticket To Pressure Facebook
only a moron blows $10- 20 billion dollars over a couple of grand.
that is literally being a penny pincher but blowing ten thousand on hookers, and crack.
it doesn't make sense. if Facebook fell for it then they really are on the way out the door.
450 million users, however 400 million plus probably are already active on Facebook.
Facebook spent $16 billion on software, and 50 million users.
"Microsoft Killed My Pappy"
This is has happened recently.
Microsoft hasn't changed, they just get caught less, and have currently have incompetent(ballmer) Leadership.
Until Microsoft stops trying to kill everything that's not microsoft and actually adopt open standards they will be horrible. Apple is just as bad but apple has to use more open standards in order to compete.
FFmpeg's VP9 Decoder Faster Than Google's

Why are you watching the justin bieber movie again?

Unabomber, Pam Am flight 103 ,
Then in the 90's
1993 WTC bombing, timothy mcveigh, etc.

White House Responds To Net Neutrality Petition
It gets better when you realize that the rest of the right wing mean by smaller government is one run exclusively by them.
Look at it this way the republican who wrote the patriot act is pissed that a democrat is abusing his law in such a way. his answer. it isn't smaller government but to pay a dedicated top secret clearance law firm tens of millions of dollars annually to justify the poorly written law.
If republicans really wanted smaller government then they should be trying to get things like the patriot act NSA spying programs not only under control but shut down to save on government spending. but not one republican will actually push for that.
Killing Net Neutrality Could Be Good For You
Netflix already pays for bandwidth.
What this is
I place a long distance call to you I pay the charges.
I call you collect you pay the charges.
What this is.
I call you long distance I pay the charges and depending on your phone company you also pay the charges.
We both are paying for the content and you get to pay twice.
Whatever Happened To the IPv4 Address Crisis?
depending on the provider you don't get a new ip address when do those things either. from my limited experiments with Comcast and Time Warner they give the same IP address to the same Mac address every time.
I replaced a router on both and got new ip addresses. however when i cloned the mac address from the old routers to the new I got the old ip addresses.
Now this is really limited. 4 routers on two service providers. so take it with a grain of salt and a shot of tequila .
Mathematician: Is Our Universe a Simulation?
No but it is almost as much as watching the walk of shame after a major holiday.
The Road To VR
hell take an xbox one, and a 60" led flat screen, back to 1995.
they would declare it VR, Just the resolution alone would astound us back then. forget about motion tracking and voice controls, it would be star trek.
in 1998 I donned a VR headset of the time and walked on a tread mill. it was fun though a bit disorienting since the screens weren't lined up for my prescription properly.

Pillage then burn.

Ugly Trends Threaten Aviation Industry
Like Microsoft if you have billions, and make billions. but still are losing it takes a long time to fall.
The USA is going in the wrong direction but still with some intelligent leadership and leadership council(congress) it can be turned around.
I don't have hope that the politicians will change.
Hell it took Rome a good 3-400 years. to fall. The USA has a much larger pile of gold to pillage before it can burn. Yes I know of the debt. but rome had a larger percentage of debt. in a good pillage debt doesn't matter.
Hackers Penetrate Top Medical Device Makers
Better go watch repo men.
That is true ransom ware.
Do Hypersonic Missiles Make Defense Systems Obsolete?
Not quite true. The big problem with the ABL is maintaining target lock long enough for the laser to burn through.
Unless the lasers are firing from a handful of targeting positions. It is a bitch to track in real time.
Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!
I uploaded two screenshots for firstname.lastname@example.org. timothy respond in twenty minutes with a short personalized response and a canned message.
800x600 would be generous. I lose enough text for a 640x400 screen. from a 1280x800 I lose almost 75% of the screen to whitespace.
