Judge Issues Gag Order For Twitter
surely the only way to stop twitter users from posting the information is to tell every twitter user who they are gagged from posting about, otherwise someone could easily post it without knowing they are breaking the gagging order.
Hands On With the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook
it's not exactly free 3G, it costs $70 which is a lot more than a 3G chip would cost. if you don't use it much it's actually quite expensive. I don't know what is available in the US but in the UK a got a 3G dongle last january (2010) for £29 which included £15 of credit allowing me 1GB. This may sound quite expensive for 1GB but i don't use it much and as the credit has no expiry on it i still have £10 of the original credit, so for me the odd few times i've used it it's a bargain.

New Wii Menu Update Targets Homebrew Again
It's like if Sony would actively try to prevent the PS3 from being used to play bluerays ??
That's a silly comparison, it's more akin to if sony were to remove the other OS feature from the PS3 (no, wait, they did that already)

Scrabble To Allow Proper Nouns
Bah, I'm sure that my name will beat you: Zhiwoumxy Quujosva. Placed all my 7 letters, +70. Placed Z and X on triple letter squares, +60. Completed 2 other words with them, +60. And so on...
Uh, how many U's are there in the game?
4 generally, unless you've lost some, i'd be more worried about how he placed his Z and X both on tripple letter scores when there are no tripple letter scores that far apart, or where he got the + 70 when you get 50 points for using all your letters.
Ubuntu Will Switch To Base-10 File Size Units In Future Release
you don't need to second-guess.
a few years ago you didn't need to: 1kb was 1024 byte. it was defined like that. why don't we define 2 as 1 and 1 as 2 next ?
There's no such thing as 2...
