Amazon Cloud Not Big Enough For Feds and WikiLeaks
Why aren't we all making our own little clouds?
Fart jokes. They never go out of style.
They may never go out of style, but sometimes they stink...

Underwear Invention Protects Privacy At Airport
When you obscure genitalia, only the outlaws will have genitalia.
More accurately, only the outlaws will wear underwear.
Actually, only outlaws will have obscured genitalia.
Also reminds me a Futurama quote where one of the cops said "And unblur your face, too!"
Heroic Engineer Crashes Own Vehicle To Save a Life
No, I think GP's comment was just OT because he has Sally Ride's house bugged and that was the last thing she said this morning...really has no place in this discussion of blowing up 100 cars for bonus points ;-)
College Student Finds GPS On Car, FBI Retrieves It
The ACLU is already involved. FTA:

Comcast Warns Customers Suspected of Bot Infection
Not everyone reads the bills or even gets paper bills. When I had Comcast, they removed a channel from their lineup and the only message was on the paper bill. Since I was paperless, I would have had to open the PDF on their site to know that. I never opened the PDFs because my bill was always the same...if they were charging me X, I knew it was right and paid it, no need to look at the itemized bill.
CIA Drones May Have Used Illegal, Inaccurate Code
The bad news: If you use nukes, then coders will get even more lazy and feel they don't have to use asserts and end up being so off that the drones nuke New Jersey instead of Afghanistan.
I'm from New Jersey, you insensitive clod!
The good news: Such as catastrophe just be enough to take Jersey Shore off the air.
Well, what are we waiting for?!?
Today's Children Are Officially Potty Mouths
But despite all the curse words, none of them were as cringeworthy as when, at her 3rd birthday party, she laid on her back, pulled up her skirt and shouted to all and sundry:
"TICKLE MY LA-LA!"
Who taught her that?

Apple Patents "Enforceable" Ad Viewing On Devices
You bring up an interesting point about which I've always wondered; how is it legal for a company to change the ToS, and still claim that a customer "signed" it? Are all contracts "update-able" in the same manner? What language would I have to use when writing a contract to reflect that property?
IANAL, but I think the language would be something like "subject to change without notice" although I'm not really sure how that would hold up in court
