Carmakers Keep Data On Drivers' Locations From Navigation Systems
Obligatory Aladdin reference.
Power-Saving Web Pages: Real Or Myth?
Yes, anyone here actually believed this. I guess in your hurry to post, you misread the double-negative in the summary...
turns out there is a not insignificant difference
That's why I don't not dislike double negatives.
Exercise and Caffeine May Activate Metabolic Genes
No kidding. What is this "exercise" thingy?
Is Agriculture Sucking Fresh Water Dry?
I don't consume any water either - I just use it and return it to the eco system (minus my small but ever increasing weight gain).
Robert Boisjoly Dies At 73, the Engineer Who Tried To Stop the Challenger Launch
There's no such thing as an accident
ac ci dent
An unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally, typically resulting in damage or injury.
There are such things as accidents. You're just misunderstanding the definition.
Megaupload.com Shut Down, Founder Charged With Piracy
Looks like justice.gov is overwhelmed (I'd say slashdotted but this goes beyond slashdot).
Site Offers History of Torrent Downloads By IP
I'll stand up and say that you're wrong - or, since you're judging art, at least in the small minority. That story you linked to praises the movie and gives several reasons why it's in Roger Ebert's list of "Great Movies". You gave no reasons why you think it's horrible. The movie has a very high 8.7 out of 10 stars at IMDB.com based on over 100,000 user ratings. It was nominated for 5 Oscars the year it came out and, although it didn't win any, it has won other awards. Perhaps being in the public domain has helped the movie - but that's not the only reason it's remembered.
Does China's Cyber Offense Obscure Woeful Defense?
The official line in Washington D.C. is that there's a new Cold War brewing
Oh wait. It's in the summary. You can make up whatever bullsh#t you like. Nevermind.
NASA Looking To Build 'Gas' Stations In Space
Since it's not in Oregon, it'd be Self Serve.
Google Loses Bedrock Suit, All Linux May Infringe
So apparently we can just mix and match random old techniques, and call it innovation and get it patented?
Of course. That's what almost all innovation is. Didn't you see "Flash of Genius"?
Amazon's Cloud Player: We Don't Need a License
Amazon will let you upload ANYTHING (pirated, ripped, bought--makes no difference) and stream it.
So they'll let me upload ANYTHING and then later download it? How dare they!!!
Utah Governor 'Honored' With Blackhole Award
That makes no sense. If he vetoed it and his veto was overridden it would still become law so that, as you say, "it COULD be hashed out in public". But you'd have sent the message that this bill sucked and was vetoed. I don't see a reason why you would sign a bill you are against. Just makes him look stupid if you ask me.
Kinect Self-Awareness Hack
Me too. Tried it in Chrome, Firefox and IE. Nothing.
Utah To Teach USA is a Republic, Not a Democracy
"from the only-two-of-three-wives-agree dept" is also not cool. There are some polygamists around somewhere I hear but I've never seen one and I've lived in Utah for 20 years. And Utah doesn't have a monopoly on them - they are also found in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Canada, Montana, South Dakota... Zero members of the LDS church are polygamists because it's against church doctrine and has been for over a century. Further, only 60% of Utahns are reportedly LDS of which who knows what percent are active church goers. Yeah the state legislature are a bunch of nut jobs but with the most national parks of any state (7) and the greatest snow on Earth, there's a lot to like about Utah.
Utah To Teach USA is a Republic, Not a Democracy
And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down.
Wikileaks DDoS Attacker Arrested, Equipment Seized
I see you've invoked the dual powers of slashdot-shame-on-you and I-dare-you-to-mod-down, a virtually undefeatable combination. Well played.
Claims About China's April Internet Hijack Are Overblown
What?!!! A Slashdot summary was wrong? A sensationalist headline was wrong? No one did any fact checking?!!!! Inconceivable!
This is why Slashdot (News for Nerds) is "news" like Fox News is "news" - it's not. There's no journalistic ethics applied. It's entertainment and maybe occasionally informational.

E-Books Are Only 6% of Printed Book Sales
With a paper book, no one is going to take it from you unless you get mugged, and then, what kind of mugger takes your books? Maybe I'll start spending money on ebooks when I'm guaranteed they're really mine. But that will never happen.
