AMD Radeon HD 7990 Released: Dual GPUs and 6G of Memory for $1000
Who cares about the performance of the card BEFORE it hits the screen? If it is faster on-screen than the competitor, then it should be considered faster, because what other judgement could be made by the user?
LHCb Experiment Observes New Matter-Antimatter Difference
...that we are definitely made of matter. If we were made of anti-matter, wouldn't matter actually look like anti-matter to us, only because it isn't what we're made of? Also, if matter and anti-matter existed in equal amounts at the beginning, wouldn't the remaining particles, regardless of what they are (after all the self-annihilation and whatnot) be considered matter by default?
A German Parking Garage Parks Your Car For You
Plural for Prius is Prii...much like the plural for octopus is octopii.
Wrong Fuel Chokes Presidential Limo
This theory doesn't apply to all early 80's GM cars...my first car was an 1983 Chevette Diesel, and the engine was sourced from Isuzu. it got close to 60mpg, but it had no balls whatsoever.

Boeing 787s To Create Half a Terabyte of Data Per Flight
I hope that is half a terabyte of 'everything is normal' messages, rather than half a terabyte of kernel oops
Time Warner Cable: No Consumer Demand For Gigabit Internet
I spend over $50 per month for what is considered the standard offering...15M down, 1M up. I could spend $50 more to get 50/5, but it really isn't worth it. So, yeah, what she says is probably correct - "We're in the business of delivering what consumers want". Translation: Not too many people are willing to pay twice as much for our fastest offering. ...but at least it isn't capped

Something about this doesn't add up...at 78 dollars an hour, she would have had to work over 200 hours in one month to make that amount, yet it says '...just working on the laptop for a few hours", which is completely misleading. 50+ hours a week ain't trivial. I think your friends sister-in-law is embellishing, to say the least.

Razer Unveils High-End Gaming Tablet
This reminds me of the old Simpsons episode where Homer designs a car for his long lost brother's car company. "...and when I step on the gas, I want people to feel like the world is going to end. And the horn should play 'La Cucaracha'..."
What eventually did them in was the price for all of the outlandish 'capability'...which very well may be the case here too.
Those who don't learn from the Simpsons are doomed to...relive their...zany antics. Or something like that.
Biogas To Power Experimental Microsoft Data Center

NYC Data Center Needs Focus On Fuel
Of course it doesn't, but it doesn't have to go unused the whole time. In between disasters, you use the 'surplus' diesel it to fire up the generator periodically, and also do cutover tests to make sure the thing will actually work. If not, get it serviced immediately. Anything is better than finding out in a disaster that the generator doesn't work. If the diesel goes bad, you eat the cost and move on.
