Two Years of Data On What Military Equipment the Pentagon Gave To Local Police
Dirty Harry killed the Blue Knight.
Future of Cars: Hydrogen Fuel Cells, Or Electric?
You reminded me of this:
What's the difference between Americans and Europeans?
Europeans think 100 miles is a long way, and Americans think 100 years is a long time.
Carpenter Who Cut Off His Fingers Makes "Robohand" With 3-D Printer
Liam had Amniotic Band Syndrome happen to that hand. Nothing to do with genetics. As the parent of child with a similar condition, thank you for confirming my fears as to how she will be perceived by people. :(
NSA and GCHQ Target "Leaky" Phone Apps To Scoop User Data
While I don't agree with the op's premise, if you encourage civilian devices to use it while knowing you can tap or otherwise access all the logs of the receiving devices (vehicles/OnStar, phones), then...?
Paging Dr. MacGyver: Maker Movement Comes To Medical Gear
I for one am happy to have the chance to produce a working set of fingers for my daughter, while waiting for pediatric i-limb digits type devices to a) exist and b) cost less than $100K. Currently available prosthetic devices are also crazy expensive for what they are and have less functionality than the robohand. It can be scaled to grow with her, I can make improvements as they come from the community, use custom colors, etc. So yeah...bite it haters. Hard.
SteamOS Will Be Available For Download On December 13
Monitors used to be better than fucking tv's is the point. Now we've gotten retarded and gone backwards due to idiot box functions taking over most peoples understanding of what a computer display should be.
Blizzard Wins Legal Battle Against WoW Bot Company
"That's where the ATV and solitare analogies don't make sense. If you wanted those analogies to be fair, you'd have to say that the ATVs were custom built for golf and those ATVs should be banned everywhere forever by law because they were used on one golf course. If I made a cheat friendly solitaire program, and used it to cheat, it is reasonable to ban me from using it on specific systems where the TOS disallow it, but to say that the program I wrote is itself illegal and can never be used, sold or given to anyone because it broke the rules on one system; that's just wrong."
Seems like they built a Blizzard-Terrain Hack Vehicle and not an All-Terrain Hack Vehicle, so there may be some weakness in your analysis.
D-Link Router Backdoor Vulnerability Allows Full Access To Settings
"The CEO. If you don't know what's going on in your company, you're criminally negligent anyway."
Unless you're Jon Corzine.
New Radioactive Water Leak At Fukushima: 300 Tons and Growing
Totally wrong on the puddle, not bothering with the rest.
"The corresponding annual effective dose, based on 700 hours of flight for subsonic aircraft and 300 hours for the Concorde, can be estimated at between 200 mrem for the least exposed routes and 500 mrem for the more exposed routes."
500 mrem is equal to 5 millisievert. So 100 msv is equal to 20 years of commercial airline employee exposure. In one hour.
Ask Slashdot: With Grants Drying Up, How Is a Tech Non-Profit To Survive?
Don't forget the sapping and impurification of our bodily fluids!
Deny them your essence!
Israel Airport Security Allowed To Read Tourists' Email
Totally agree. And fuck Israel.
Drone Comes Within 200 Feet of Airliner Over New York
It's also amusing that you don't, are wrong, and are so smug about it.
Islamists In Bangladesh Demand Murder of More Bloggers
So you equate liberty with government handouts? Bizarre, if true.
Islamists In Bangladesh Demand Murder of More Bloggers
Priceless. That was simultaneously the most hilarious and sad post I've seen in a long while. Kudos.
Alcoholism Vaccine Makes Alcohol Intolerable To Drinkers
"whole thing sounds a bit clockwork orange to me"
Ask Slashdot: Why Is It So Hard To Make An Accurate Progress Bar?
The Midnight Commander progress meter is for me the standard by which all others are judged, and is on my Things of Serious Fucking Beauty list. For years it has put to shame the fluctuating WAG meter in Windows. You know it if the network or something starts suddenly slowing down your move/copy - the throughput readout doesn't lie.
Local Emergency Alert System Hacked, Warns Dead Rising From Graves
And tsk, tsk. What can I say, it's a battle between the young and the old internal geeks.
I also note sadly to myself that my old geek would scold, while the current enforcement mindset would encourage terrorist charges. And also noting that the fact that I would even _think about that_ is fucking sad.
Department of Homeland Security Wants Nerds For a New "Cyber Reserve'"
"Why don't y'all take that badge and shove it up your ass. All up in your ass." I'm American.
Kurzweil: The Cloud Will Expand Human Brain Capacity
Welcome to the forum Dr. Soong!
Joking. That post was a thing of beauty. And fwiw anon, I have mods but was moved to reply. So...damn given and thanks for reviving the old /. vibe in me for a moment.
Counterfeit Air Bag Racket Blows Up
On the whole, I would say no.
Building a reputation for quality is hard and restrictive. It restricts your ability to be lazy and make short term cash by ripping people off.
China can make high quality things right now. They just choose not to.
And though I feel it is crucial, I will leave the cultural differences between Germany/Japan and China unexplored so as not to incite a riot.
