top NYC Tech Sector Growing Faster Than City Can Keep Up
Seriously. I don't even live in LA (But I've visited multiple times,) and in my city my short 14 mile commute takes an hour on the best days. If there's an accident or even someone simply pulled over by the police it's guaranteed to double it at the very least.

top Scientists Work Towards Naturally Caffeine-Free Coffee
Low quality our poorly made coffee tastes like shit, and if its coffee being made at work it's most likely going to be both of those.
Quality, well-made coffee is a completely different story. The current method of making decaf though completely alters and ruins the coffee taste. I'd kill for a decaf that actually tastes like, you know, coffee.
Now Coke, there's something that tastes like shit.
top TSA Groper Files Suit Against Blogger
Well, neither one of them pays shit - so the chances are if someone goes to work at one, they'll have to get a second job at the other just to pay their bills!
top Japanese Supreme Court Rules TV Forwarding Illegal
I would have thought a 'murder' (like crows) would be a popular collective noun for lawyers around here.
A murder of lawyers. It has a nice poetic ring and just rolls right off the tongue, doesn't it?
top US Deploys 'Heat-Ray' In Afghanistan
Ah yes, good ol' Oklahoma... Sad thing is, most of the people I've heard talking about that around here (Yeah, I'm stuck in that shithole of a state,) sided with the police about the whole thing.
top History Repeats Itself — Mac & the iPad
Sketchbook Pro is already available for the iPad and it's the one app that has me interested in one. The lack of a ready stylus and not really knowing how well a capacitive stylus works is what's holding me back. Oh, that and the price.
top FCC Inquires About Controversial Verizon Fees
They did invade here - and all we got out of it was T-Mobile - you know, 7th largest mobile operator in the world? They settled into the American Way of cellphone service so readily it's hard to remember they're a multinational.
top Digsby IM Client Quietly Installs Badware
People never mention Miranda because I imagine most people want to just install an IM app and start using it - not spend hours hunting down necessary plugins and tweaking it just to give it basic functionality.
That being said, I LOVE the concept of Miranda - it's just too much work and too much of a pain in the butt to bother with.
top China Ditches Compulsory Green Dam Plans
Hell some places, like here in Oklahoma, are still waiting to have their -first- 'sixties'.
top RadioShack To Rebrand As "The Shack"?
No DJs between 6pm and 6am? You don't know how truly lucky you are. I -wish- our radio stations had no DJs for any period of time, you get more of their inane babbling (whatever happened to entertaining, witty DJs?) than you get music. I'm just glad there's a Jack FM station here so I can at least hear SOME music on the radio.
top SMS Hack Could Make iPhones Vulnerable
Funny how you mention that since just the other day at work we were noticing how my Edge connection on T-Mobile is faster than a co-worker's 3G AT&T connection was.
top Google Latitude Arrives For the iPhone — As a Web App
As someone who has to charge her phone multiple times a day I can say that something as simple as leaving an IM client running in the background takes a HUGE hit on the G1's already pathetic battery, if nothing else.
That is, assuming Android's brain dead memory manager keeps the program running in the first place, and doesn't decide to just kill it off for some reason.
top Nvidia Lauds Windows CE Over Android For Smartbooks
While Android may not be nearly as mature as Windows Mobile - from my own experience it's vastly inferior to Microsoft's product It has potential, but it still has a ways to go. Granted, my own experience may be influenced by the fact that HTC decided to make the G1 a fairly sub-par platform for Android, giving it next to no storage and leaving it very little ram to run apps after Android sucks up the majority of it - but the same hardware running WinMo would be able to do so much more.
top Opera Launches Facial Gesture Capability
You should be ashamed for doing that - in fact anyone who'd reply to you for the same reason should be ashamed too!
Not that I'd do anything like that, of course...
top Oklahoma, Vatican Take Opposite Tacks On Evolution
As another (unwilling,) Oklahoma resident - let me agree with this. This is one of the scariest places I've lived in thanks to the fine populace.
top Internet Killed the Satellite Radio Star
You turn on the music and as you drive all around the country, you get the same music/talk/news whatever.
Thanks to Clear Channel and the like - you already get this for free in your car.

"News for Nerds."
The Simpsons. Video games. E3. If -that- doesn't qualify, then nothing does.
