Why Microsoft Killed the Windows Start Button
I like how single apps have their own category
Microsoft Killed the Start Menu Because No One Uses It
Maybe you need to change your power options. I don't know why they would have the power button default to "do nothing."
Ask Slashdot: Where Can I Buy Legal Game ROMs?
1.) Buy the original arcade board

Of course, you could use your cabinet to play the original games instead of emulating them.
Mozilla Firefox 6 Released Ahead of Schedule
I don't think anyone really minds if new versions are released often, but the issue of add-ons breaking because of the chosen versioning scheme is probably the largest annoyance. You can still release often without changing the major version number, at least until you can convince add-on developers to use the new SDK.
Firefox 8 20% Faster Than Firefox 5
Maybe it's time to revise the contracts based on these new realities?

Retailers Dread Phone-Wielding Shoppers

Kinect Hacked, Adafruit Bounty Won
"Winmodems" were made to reduce costs. It's apparently cheaper to remove hardware and replace the functionality in the driver. Even the Dreamcast has a soft modem.
Are Consumer Hard Drives Headed Into History?
Good luck lifting a giant CRT
Recommendations For Home Virtualization?
I have the option to enable both on an AMD computer with a Radeon card. You might possibly have a configuration problem.
Square Enix Attempting Final Fantasy XIV Damage Control
Have you ever played FFXI before? Most of your time in the game involves long periods of waiting, so being able to look at a website while doing so is actually a good thing.
Casio Unveils New Color Screen Graphing Calculator
Yes, mine had a 3 color display. Nice for graphing.
Best Buy Unapologetic About Charging For PS3 Firmware Updates
I like how a HDMI cable has a financing option
Why Are We Losing Vertical Pixels?
For that much money, you could almost buy a monitor that doesn't use a TN panel
