Ebola Quarantine Center In Liberia Looted
The specific example I mentioned in my post (people going to facilities end up dead, therefore the facilities are killing them) is also irrational, because it assumes causation where there is only correlation.
It may be rational if they do not have any other data. Especially the data whether the ill would die if they are not taken to the hospital. They may be trying to collect these data by taking people from hospital and waiting whether they die too. Though they should rather try not to even bring the ill to the hospital. Maybe that is the reason for destroing the hospital. So that it cannot accept future patiens and they can collect the right data (would ill people die even if they are not exposed to a hostiall).
A word from a white man telling them they would die outside a hosptital too is not worth much if white folks were lying before.
Crytek USA Collapses, Sells Game IP To Other Developers
I played only Crysis 3 and I quite liked it.
Mathematical Proof That the Cosmos Could Have Formed Spontaneously From Nothing
So tell me again how atheist are better than religious people?
Religion is actually very usefull for people. You need to realize that god is a universal excuse. If something does not go well we can always "blame" god instead of figuring out why it did not go well. If we do something wrong we can believe that god will fix it for us and pardons us (possibly after a confession). Or we can claim the god actually wanted us to do wrong. It allows us to stay lazy instead of improving ourselves. God is also very usefull for people who cannot cope with uncertainties of reality. Moreover it allows the clever people to manipulate the rest. Yeah we (as a society) pretty much need a god. So sad!
Lumia Phones Leaking Private Data To Microsoft
Hardware and firmware? They proabably wanted to tell: "Our phones do not snoop at the hardware and firmware level. Anything at the higher levels is not our business."
UK Introduces Warrantless Detention
Yes, it is a piece of junk.

Microsoft Botches More Patches In Latest Automatic Update
Not back-doored by the NSA: for all 99% of people know, Linux is back-doored by the NSA to high heaven.
Did you just pull this out of thin air, or can you back it up with some facts?
Google Pressure Cookers and Backpacks: Get a Visit From the Feds
If they used https then the url is encrypted. That means the search terms are not part of plain meta-data.
It would be interesting to know whether they used http or https.
Love and Hate For Java 8
I would almost agree, that any language is as good as any other. With a few exceptions, like "whitespace" which isn't meant to be a practical language anyway.
You may be right if you talk within one group of languages like e.g. procedural. But there is quite a difference between groups: (procedural, functional, logic), (strict, lazy), (pure, with side effects), (dynamically, or statically typed, or untyped), (static, lexical, dynamic scoping).
No, programming languages are not equal to each other. They can be very different. But I agree that tools are important.
New Thunderbolt Revision Features 20 Gbps Throughput, 4K Video Support
A lot, any SATA drive is eSATA. You just need to add power to it trough a separate cable. They changed only the connector. The mistake was not adding power to the new connector. What a pity!
Lots of Changes for Intel Graphics Coming in Linux 3.9
we call them morons, why would one cripple their computer, a suposed tool to get things done to hold them selves higher in the morality of a fucking driver is beyond me, I have shit to get done, not be political with my tools.
Or they are willing to suffer a bit now in an attempt to create a new market segment for open drivers. You could call them investors instead of morons. Also there are issues with reporting bugs when your kernel is tainted. This can be critical for some people. Maybe you can try to educate yourself about their motivation before calling them "morons".
Fireflies Bring Us Brighter LEDs
I have no need of the hypothesis that there is a Creator. It explains everything, but predicts nothing.
LG Introduces Monitor With 21:9 Aspect Ratio
I am not sure you could still buy a 4:3 monitor any more.
4:3 (1280x1024) is common for 19" LCD. Newegg has a lot of them.
WordPress To Accept Bitcoins
Presumably all the early adopters in this Ponzi scheme have now cashed in
Probably not. About 65% of BTCs in use are owned by only 10,000 users.
Why is it a Ponzi scheme?
Airlines Face Acute Pilot Shortage
And then the data link breaks or gets jammed (or even hacked?) by a terrorist. Especially when electrical systems start failing, the connection will be lost.
Then open big parachutes and let the plane land with them (wherever it is currently located). Then send rescue to pick up passengers ... or whatever is left from them :)
Linus Torvalds Advocates For 2560x1600 Standard Laptop Displays
3840x2160, 30bpp, 60fps will use about 15Gbit/s, Display Port bandwidth is 17.28 Gbit/s. So there is still some room. You can also use different color encoding (like YCbCr 4:2:2 chroma sub sampling) to lower bandwidth. Lowering color channel bandwidth to 16 bpp (8bit luma 8bit chroma) would be barely noticeable for such a high density display. Our non-existing 4096x4096, 16bpp, 60fps display would use about 16 Gbit/s. So Display Port is barely OK. And you can still lower the refresh rate :)
Misunderstanding of Prior Art May Have Led to Apple-Samsung Verdict
That sentence states Groklaw's opinion how the law should define what is patentable. It does not say how it is. It is not a misunderstanding being spread.
