NASA Says 2010 Tied For Warmest Year On Record
Global warming actually means stronger hurricanes
Right, which explains why the Global Accumulated Cyclone Energy index is the lowest in three decades.
Maybe one of these days you warmistas will finally admit that you have no idea how man-made inputs ultimately affect the climate.
Should Wikipedia Just Accept Ads Already?
More appropriately, given the audience here:
What is the difference between it being blank because Wikipedia didn't put anything there and it being blank because we all have AdBlock Pro installed?
Robot Swarm Control On Microsoft's Surface
It actually seems much more reminiscent of the "Flight Control" iApp.
USAF Scramjet Hits Mach 6, Sets Record
Are these engines so early in development that they really can't get them to be stable and safe for more than 12 seconds?
Are you talking about the scramjet or the events at Kitty Hawk in 1903?
Because Wilbur already had the first chance, Orville took his turn at the controls. His first flight lasted 12 seconds for a total distance of 120 feet (36.5 m) - shorter than the wingspan of a Boeing 707.
Airship Inflated To Create Monster "Stratellite"
stratospheric satellite, or 'stratellite,' according to its developers.
The airship is designed to carry payloads of up to 2,000 pounds (907 kg) at altitudes of 20,000 feet (6,096 m).
The stratosphere is situated between about 10 km (6 miles) and 50 km (31 miles) altitude above the surface at moderate latitudes, while at the poles it starts at about 8 km (5 miles) altitude.
Anyone else see the issue?
I've only seen half of one Lost episode in my life, and I thank you for confirming my determination that it would have been an utter waste of life to watch.
And that differs from your dedication to commenting on a topic to which you have said you have no interest how exactly?
Do we know that? I don't remember seeing anything about Michael in the episode.
Yes, Micheal said it explicitly in the "Everybody Loves Hugo" episode.
How To Replace FileVault With EncFS
FileVault is a proprietary tool from a big and famous manufacturer. This means that you can be sure that there is a built-in backdoor for government bodies to use, in case you would be a terrorist suspect or trying to seize control by a coup. These backdoors are usually found and used against you in practice.
Forget LCDs and LEDs, Here Come LPDs
The thinnest DLPs are (were) 7" deep. I've had one wall mounted for a little over 4 years now.
How Apple Orchestrates Controlled Leaks, and Why
I think the point of the article is
No, the point of this article can be summed up in one sentence:
"Blue Horseshoe loves the iSlate"
Google Releases Source To Chromium OS
By centralizing, I am expecting that number to drop by 2/3.

CDC Adopts Near Real-Time Flu Tracking System
Back in July, the CDC told the states to not to bother to test people for H1N1; they should just count people that appear to have H1N1 symptoms as a positive test result since it is a "OMG! We're all fucked! Pig are flying and they have teh flu!" situation.
Of course, the fact that this overestimates the reported occurence of H1N1 by a factor of 5 to 50 times is of no concern to us peasants.
Plug vs. Plug — Which Nation's Socket Is Best?
Features like shuttering and built in fuses. Both of which are optional on American outlets as well
Thanks to the electrical manufacturers, "shuttering" is no longer optional for residential installations that follow NEC 2008 or later (406.11).
Who Installs the Most Crapware?
This line of reasoning begs the definition of "crapware," and the #1 response would be "stuff you don't need on your computer." It doesn't have to slow it down, it doesn't have to have an enormous memory footprint when it's running or a huge disk footprint when it isn't, it just has to be stuff you don't need. And depending who you are, that can be quite a lot.
By that definition, the "crapware" winner would have to be most Linux distros. With the exception of machines that are set up for development / production environment, do you honestly think that most people go through each package, one-by-one to determine their need or do they just select the "Desktop" option (for example)?
The last installation I did had somewhere near 1000 packages and I would put money down that I, as a "power user", have used less than 100 of them. They are there, though, in case I ever need them since disk space is cheap and that really is the only cost for them.
SCO Terminates Darl McBride
Remember at the end of the first Star Wars when Luke is jamming down the trench with Vader and his crew looking to bust a cap in his ass but Solo lays the smack down and Vader gets bitch slapped and they blow up the Death Star and they cut back to Vader recovering from a triple lutz doing a "WTF"?
Darl = Darth
Hope that clears it up for you.
Cosmic Ray Intensity Reaches Highest Levels In 50 years
Disproved? Perhaps you want to go tell CERN that the science is settled because Science Daily, Wired, and Discover magazine say it is so?
Has Texting Replaced Talking For Teens?
Text messages are brief and quickly digestible, unlike email.

The Decline of the Landline
I can't believe I'm the only person who finds this to be so.
Mind-Blowing Interfaces On Display At SIGGRAPH 2009
Talk to Apple Computers about it. They started that whole thing.
That's harder than you think.
Adjustable-Focus Glasses Can Replace Bifocals
This would be really cool for controlling tint in glasses though. Those transition lenses that do this automatically don't really work well. I would love a pair of glasses that allowed me to manually adjust the tint.
That problem has been solved for decades, if not longer. Two polarized lenses, one of which can be rotated relative to the other, produce the effect you are looking for.
