Yeah, holding up examples of successful dropouts like Zuckerberg and drawing inferences from that is nothing more than confirmation bias. It's well established that, looking at the overall population, college grads earn more than non-grads. It's probably also true, overall, that college grads are happier with their jobs than non-grads (although I'm too lazy to look that up). I wouldn't be surprised if they live longer as well, given they probably have better health care.
Google Voice is "still" being actively developed? What has Google added to Grand Central at all?
Not in perl.
As soon as I've finished the main part, I will go back and deal with any sections I've flagged with # TODO
Tarjei Mandt really hates Jonny Ives' new flat icons. Note that "iOS6 was teh better!" comment?
Why don't we decide on a handful of strong PRNGs, and make every major OS use them exclusively,
You do realize which US federal agency would almost certainly be involved in developing these, don't you?

Back in the day, every FedEx package used to route through Tennessee.
I don't particularly care about IAU's naming - but they are the legitimate authority here, if such a thing exists.
What's funny, though, is that the submitter bizarrely thinks everyone is somehow going to come down on the side of some website (?) no ones ever heard of. Apparently the term "crowd sourcing" is supposed to magically sway us?
Ken would've talked about how much he liked that window treatment, then went off to listen to his Liza Minelli records.
Mod points, mod points... My kingdom for mod points!
I can not get it through my wife's head that there is a REASON for the way I pack so much stuff together. She is now (after 7 years) able to imitate my layouts, but if we were to suddenly have, say, 4 more dinner plates in the rotation, she'd be unable to come up with a new way of packing everything in.
I've been married 30 years, and from what you say it seems pretty obvious - not only does your wife have you thoroughly trained... she's also much smarter than you.
My wife tells me - convincingly - I'm much better than she is at certain things. And I'm just now starting to figure out these are all things she doesn't want to do herself.
Ha! When will Google Voice start handling MMS, period? And no, changing it over to an email doesn't count.
Google hasn't done anything with the product since they bought it... other than put their name on it.
If you - and everyone on Slashdot that agrees with you - didn't select "bothers everyone around me as I rant and fume"...
You answered wrong.
I'm not a fan of Google's, but I'm not sure why people are unwilling to recognize this is a significant step in the right direction.
Before Google took the steps necessary to ensure communications between data centers was secured, the government could (and apparently did) just slurp up everything and troll for information. Now, at least they'll need some sort of court order, which means they'll need at least a modicum of an idea what they are targeting.
The entire government system is still deeply - maybe even fatally - flawed. Even if Obama's reforms actually take place, there's still far too much power left in the hands of the secret courts and the spy agencies. But fixing this horrible, unconstitutional mess will take time and effort. Correcting (or, in this case, interfering with) even one aspect of it is welcome news.
