How Our Botched Understanding of "Science" Ruins Everything
Seriously, what the hell is this crap?
Further evidence that Slashdot jumped the shark long ago.
Sorry, was there too much jargon in my science there?
US Navy Cruiser and Submarine Collide
Apparently, reading comprehension isn't your strength. Did you miss the bit about "along with another vessel"?
How Long Is Your Morning Commute?
Over an hour, but it's a 16 mile bike ride... if I drive a car, it's only 25 minutes.
Scientists Breeding Super Bees
Didn't they do this a few years ago, when they created the Africanized bee or "killer bees"? Well, by all means keep it up, what could possibly go wrong?
According to the article, they're working with Canadian bees. So---so long as the bees are kept away from the hockey games and alcohol---nothing will go wrong!
Apple: "We must Have Comprehensive Location Data"
Your users or world governments?
High Severity BIND Vulnerability Advisory Issued
Just upgrade to tinydns/dnscache and forget about security bugs...
Or to MaraDNS or powerDNS, with the same result, but no legacy DJB BS...
The Companies Who Support Censoring the Internet
Wait, so one person can't possibly effect a boycott, but one person not voting is legit? There seems to be a disconnect here...
Mystery of the Dying Bees Solved
Probably the same way that commercial beekeepers administer antibiotics: mix it in with some feed syrup.
US Banks That Offer Transaction History?
I second this idea. Not only are you supporting a locally owned business, but they're also supporting other locally owned businesses. And as a member, you can often get good rates for loans. Also, they're not responsible for all the financial woes in the USA. Well, OK, that last part is speculation, but it does sound good...
Airbus Planning Transparent Planes
Would they also require the pilots to dress like Wonder Woman?
Open Source Not Welcome At Palm App Catalog
Yes. Must be a slow news day. Here's some follow-up from the first time this appeared.
Samsung's New Carbon Nanotube Color E-Paper
Actually, no. The e-paper itself is NOT translucent or transparent. E-paper is a reflective medium. It's the top electrode on the e-paper, being made of CNTs and acting as a replacement for traditional ITO, that is translucent. However, ITO is very transparent, whereas CNTs are not. Notice the display in the article is rather dark.
Also, ITO is not flexible, while CNTs are. That's why CNTs are being used to replace ITO in e-paper, which is meant to be flexible. At least, in principle.
