Hacking a Tesla Model S Could Net $10,000 Prize
Tesla doesn't have any dealerships. Any other theory?
FTC Says T-Mobile Made Hundreds of Millions From Bogus SMS Charges
At Verizon this was known as Premium SMS. All the carriers have this in some name or other. I know Verizon will block it if requested, and it's mainly used by scammers.

Amazon Confirms Hachette Spat Is To "Get a Better Deal"
But they do list them, every 3rd party merchant in their network can list the book for sale. Amazon will assist in the transaction in the same manner they have for any other purchases made from those merchants, including showing the books in the search results.
Mozilla Scraps Firefox For Windows 8, Citing Low Adoption of Metro
No mod points, so I'll just repeat what the AC below me said:
You're a pompous, pretentious tosser.
Ask Slashdot: What Games Are You Playing?
I have really enjoyed Path of Exile lately. If you are looking for a good arpg experience that is less pay to win than Diablo 3, this is a good choice. You really can enjoy all the content the game offers for free, and there is nothing you can buy with real money that will make your character more viable.

Who Makes the Best Hard Disk Drives?
I avoided ordering Hitachi drives because of their horrible RMA process. Anyone know if this has improved?
Ask Slashdot: How Do You Convince an ISP To Bury Cable In Your Neighborhood?
And can't get shit beyond "1.5" at my house. It wasn't even half that speed when I tried it.
Would-Be Tesla Owners Jump Through Hoops To Skirt Wacky Texas Rules
Every example you have stated is just flat out protectionism, and is not something our gov't should be involved in.
Progress often means the status quo becomes outdated.
Who the fuck likes a car salesman anyway? I can't imagine there is a lot of support to retain those jobs.
Nokia Design Guru Urges Apple To End Cable Chaos
"Don't shoot the messenger" doesn't just apply when you disagree with the message.
Did Apple Make a Mistake By Releasing Two New iPhones?
The "cheap" 5C still retails for $549-$649. I'm sure Apple has a healthy amount of profit with that figure.
I don't see the 5C as a low end device, instead I see the 5S as a premium model. No one pays over half a grand for a low end phone.
Ars Test Drives the "Netflix For Books"
I regret the title of my reply. I edited it out of the post, but neglected to review the title.
It's not actually moronic, and didn't mean to insult the OP.
Ars Test Drives the "Netflix For Books"
I've only grudgingly moved more and more of my reading to tablets, but now am glad I have; still, I don't like the idea of having my books disappear if I don't pay a continuing subscription.
I see this as a big benefit for people that like to read for entertainment. You aren't paying for the actual books, just access to them. For light reading (entertainment purposes) this seems like a great deal.
I'll always buy technical books I want to refer to in hard copy when I can, but I don't need a persistent copy of most of the things I read.
New Snowden Revelation: Terrorists Attempting To Infiltrate CIA
The sky is blue.
I'd be surprised if terrorists were not trying to infiltrate the CIA.
Rise of the Warrior Cop: How America's Police Forces Became Militarized
I'll share a story to back up the OP's claim:
When I was younger I used Ketamine. We would go to Nogales or Tijuana, Mexico and purchase it from "veterinary supply" stores.
One time I was in a shop in Nogales and there were 2 Utah police officers in the store as well. They had been referred to the guy by one of their uncles, also an officer. They were buying horse steroids.
Ask Slashdot: Video Streaming For the Elderly?
Another Roku owner here. Me and my wife use it for Netflix, Hulu Plus, and MP4's on USB sticks. The remote is very simple and the user interface is to.
Android Co-Founder: Fragmentation "an Overblown Issue"
And I'm just an end user who owns both Android and iOS devices. When I see the disparity in app quality on both platforms, especially in games, and hear developers explain why Android is so much more difficult to work with I'm going to take it at face value.
Android Fragmentation Isn't Hurting Its Adoption
That was my first impression as well.
Fragmentation may not hurt the adoption of the OS, but it severely hinders the development of apps.
Sony, Microsoft Squabble Over Console Features, But the Real Opponent Is Apple
Mobile games are popular because they are time fillers. If I expected the same quality I get from my PS3 or PC when I play an ipod game I'd be severely disappointed. I don't though. I just appreciate the ability to whip the device out and obliterate dirty pigs or slash monsters and fruits with my fingers when I'm waiting at the doctors, dmv, end of my lunch break, etc.
Let's put this in perspective: Has anyone ever accused Nintendo of sabotaging their console market with their Game Boy/DS products? No?
Well I don't see why Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo should be worried about Apple then.
