+ - ARM Server Start-up Calxeda Closes Up Shop->

Submitted by Austerity Empowers
Austerity Empowers (669817) writes ""Calxeda, the pioneering maker of low-power microservers using hundreds of ARM central processor cores and System-on-a-Chip (SoC) products for hardware appliances, has laid off most of its employees and is shutting down operations beyond servicing its existing customers and investments." A sad day for many of us."

+ - Wheel of Time: A Memory of Light Released, but no eBook until April->

Submitted by Austerity Empowers
Austerity Empowers (669817) writes "The final entry in the fantasy series that has been released in 14 volumes over the past 20 years has been released . However in a typical money grubbing strategy that consumers have grown accustomed to from publishers, the eBook option will not release until April . We've seen this with movies, delaying streaming releases to try to drive up sales (and failing, with publishers mostly giving up), but now we also see it with books. Loyal fans are irate, giving 1 star reviews for a book they can't even have read ."

+ - Apple caves to Think Of The Children

Submitted by Austerity Empowers
Austerity Empowers (669817) writes "Apparently in an attempt to maintain a good corporate image, apple has yanked the "Baby Shaker" iPhone app from the app store. While I think there is little doubt that shaking a baby is not a socially acceptable behavior, it appears that good taste is one of many parameters required to sell a product on the iPhone. It would seem little has changed in the smart-phone world, except rather than being dominated by apps acceptable to carriers, we are to be dominated by apps acceptable to Apple."
It's funny.  Laugh.

+ - Civil War - Part Deux, Texas Strikes Back

Submitted by Austerity Empowers
Austerity Empowers (669817) writes "Former presidential candidate and Slashdot dark-horse favorite Ron Paul discusses the merits and patriotism associated with secession, after failing to stop bailout politics. While many of us on any side of the political spectrum might hear the message and agree in part, is this possibly the reason why he remains on the outside looking in at the political machine that is the US Government? Not all of our secessions have exactly been crowning achievements."
It's funny.  Laugh.

+ - Zombies Invade Austin, Natives Still Weird->

Submitted by Austerity Empowers
Austerity Empowers (669817) writes "Public safety was given a significant boost yesterday, as a clandestine resistance organization changed electronic roadway signs to warn Austinites of a zombie invasion . The local government ministry of information and hired thugs quickly acted to suppress the information, correcting the signs to innocuous traffic reports. I, for one, welcome our new Zombie overlords."
