Study: Chimpanzees Have Evolved To Kill Each Other

relisher Re: No surprise (224 comments)

Honestly, I feel as if the whole queen bee syndrome is more or a cultural trait rather than an evolutionary trait so the point is moot.

Canada Tops List of Most Science-Literate Countries

relisher Science and Faith (221 comments)

Though not many are willing to admit it, science is based on faith, and if anyone would say otherwise, they would be lying. Hume's problem of induction really shows this faith we hold well - If I hit an billiard ball and it moves, how do I really know whether it was my hitting the ball that caused it to move? Though it SEEMS to be moving due to my touching it, how are we really sure? We use faith in our senses and assume that the hitting caused the motion. All research is done in this fashion, based on faith in science. I'm not sure how I would have answered the question in it's current form, since it is ambiguous about whether it is speaking about religious faith or faith in action. If it where less vague, and asked that we should depend on religious faith more, though, I would have definitely answered no.

Google Announces a New Processor For Project Ara

relisher Re:Google seems kind of serious about this (36 comments)

It's nice to see Google kind of pushing the envelope on this

If any of you RTFA, then you could tell that Google isn't (really) pushing the envelope on this. It's a budget application processor. Nothing new here. Move along.

relisher Re: $200MM (107 comments)

I'm pretty sure MM stands for Monopoly Money. IoT obviously doesn't deserve REAL money so this is what they get...

relisher Spy agency certifying anti-spying program (45 comments)

Funny that the GCHQ would certify programs that *in theory* should help companies protect themselves from the spying of the GCHQ.

Mozilla Dumps Info of 76,000 Developers To Public Web Server

relisher Re: Mozilla... (80 comments)

Well, in Mozillas defense, at least they admitted their mistake rather than ignoring it like many companies we have seen on Slashdot do.

KDE Releases Frameworks 5

relisher Re:And GNOME 3 is still a HEAP OF SHIT. (87 comments)

GNOME 3 sure as fuck isn't getting any better

I'm not sure which version of GNOME you used, but beginning with GNOME 3.14, the experience has become very refined and much quicker partially based on its switch from X11 to Wayland

Russia Wants To Replace US Computer Chips With Local Processors

relisher Re: Good luck with that (340 comments)

The Russian government has already helped to creat a fairly successful corporation that specializes in Sparc processors named ÐoeЦÐÐ, or Moscow Center for SPARC Technology (wiki link in Russian here: http://ru.m.wikipedia.org/wiki...ÐoeЦÐÐ) I don't see any reason they would have difficulty doing the same with ARM

HUGO Winning Author Daniel Keyes Has Died

relisher Great Author (66 comments)

I remember reading this book in 8th grade. In all honesty, this is the only book I remember reading middle school. This may have been the first book to physically effect an emotion in me, and I loved it. And now, I feel an emotion again, a feeling of sadness because the author has passed away. Daniel Keyes will truly be missed, may he Rest in Peace.

Even In Digital Photography Age, High Schoolers Still Flock To the Darkroom
