GoDaddy Goes Down, Anonymous Claims Responsibility
Also moved to Namecheap. Additionally would recommend DNS Made Easy for DNS hosting.
Amazingly fast multicast. multi-geo and economical DNS. Also love their useful (albeit proprietary) ANAME record.
Quantum Teleportation Sends Information 143 Kilometers
Out of interest, why is it a problem if communication is FTL versus physical matter travelling.
Never really understood why information FTL would be such an issue.

I don't read Slashdot that often anymore, but it's post's like your that really stand out as extremely insightful and wise.
iPhone Bug Allows SMS Spoofing
This just in, a flaw has been discovered in Email, allowing an attacker to arbitrarily spoof the From: address.
All hell is bound to break loose.

Pretty much sums it up for me too.
Mozilla Considers H264 After WebM Fails To Gain Traction
Omg. I literally exploded when I read your comment. :)
Study Suggests the Number-Line Concept Is Not Intuitive
No I haven't read the article, but a "study" claiming x is not "intuitive", I find highly suspect.
The reason you can't define intuitive, is because we don't know what the word means yet.
Furthermore it has been used to describe multiple mental processes.
I mean many call the iPhone "intuitive", and I'm pretty fucking sure we weren't born with Apple in our DNA.

Zuckerberg Made Instagram Deal Alone
Oh ok that explains it, bro. Here I was thinking stupidly that his talent and intelligence played a major decisive role too.
I mean who the f-- cares about the truth, feels better to call it timing and placement, right? It's amost as if.. any nerd in his position would just have automatically created a billion dollar company.
We are all amazing and special after all.
Microsoft's Lifebrowser Is a Prosthetic For Memory
That's interesting. Do you have any objective evidence MS do this just to hurt F/OSS?
Not saying I don't believe you, just want to read more.
Microsoft's Lifebrowser Is a Prosthetic For Memory
It will most likely sit in the basement, along with other cool MSR tech, that mostly never see buy-in from MS Product teams.
Pity really. Innovation is not something you put in a department and leave it to one side. It needs to be in the fabric of the organization. Apple has been a good example of this.
Nano-Scale Terahertz Antenna May Make Tricorders Real
Actually it's a perfectly valid way of reasoning.
Just because you tend to have a more deductive process does not mean, probablistic inference is invalid or "silly".
For example, Let X = Car and Y = Truck and C = Motorvehicles.
When cars use up energy (burn fuel), on average, most of the time, they are travelling forward. The could certainly be stationary and reversing as well, but that is not what the argument is stating. Similarly we might expect the same behavior from trucks.
The two are not deductively linked, however there is a belief that is greater than 0, that get's created. To say, "one can know *nothing*", is dogmatic and untrue. Probabilistic reasoning helps us navigate reality
Does it have errors? Sure, but then so does deduction, eg when someone prides themselves on the logical process, but forgets to use the same rigor on the starting conditions or assumptions.
Both methods have there merits.

How Steve Jobs Solved the Innovator's Dilemma
Maybe, but he got lucky several times in a row.
This is one of the most naive comments I've ever seen on Slashdot. Do not let your own biases or insecurities stand in the way of acknowledging Job's visionary product brilliance was by far and large the most significant variable.
New NASA Data Casts Doubt On Global Warming Models
Well put Sir.
Could the US Phase Out Nuclear Power?
How is asking the question whether the US could phase out nuclear power FUD? It's a perfectly legitimate question. The GP just does not want it asked, so he resorts to an ad hominem/poisoning the well against the submitter. It's perfectly fine to ask what we do with the waste, by the way. And if the answer - as you, and the GP seem to agree upon - is that we have no clue, that is a pretty strong argument to research possibilities of a phase-out, instead of accumulating more of it.
I get it bro. Every question should be entertained with equal vigor and seriousness.
Is obama a muslim? I think we have a right to know though.
Is it true that Mindcontrolled (1388007) raped a girl in high school? Again it's a fair question... And I attacking me for asking it is a logical fallacy.
Pushing politically agenda's in the guise of intellectual curiosity, is dishonest. I don't think many here are falling for it.
Security Service Accidentally Makes Websites 60% Faster
I still don't understand. If my site is hosted in a rack in Colo A, and users access it, it goes out via the same pipes.
Are you talking specifically if I have 3rd party widgets embedded in your site? Because in the scenario above (Colo A), I don't see how it helps vs using a regular CDN.
