But to be viable, fusion power plants would have to produce more energy than they consume, which has proven elusive.
Now, a breakthrough by scientists at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) could boost hopes of scaling up fusion"

HMV, Game, Debenhams, JJB, DW, JD... just a few stores i can think of now that have the all glass front, the table and stool layout, currys use it, comet used to use it, asda use it in their electronics departments... seems prior art doesnt count for anything anymore, neither does "your patent cant be completely fucking retarded".
Didnt sheldon already come up with this in the big bang theory? surely he has the patent on these devices...
there is the small problem of the hundreds of millions of guns that already exist that do not already have this technology in them and convincing people their old guns arnt as good as the new guns
not entirely sure why you would need a slingshot to light something that you can usually buy with a rocket attached in any firework shop. just light the rocket and away you go. and as for "easily crashes through a card board box", the UK rockets will blow a hole through a window or blow the exhaust of a car.
which projects are now going to close their doors to full disclosure? this was posted on the ircd's own bug reporting systems and was publicly visible. if it were not, and only the developers and higher level users (such as the nodes of efnet or freenode) should be able to see reports of this nature, this sort of attack may not have happened and the ircd's could have been silently patched without anyone knowing.
on the other hand, if you close your doors, you obviously have something that requires hiding, drawing more attention.
what will projects do next?
Although this is completely off topic....You say Muslims spread to countries by just going there and settling there. Unlike the Christians, who originally spread with "be christian or we will kill you, your family, and everyone in the village...." and did that across pretty much all of Europe spreading out from Rome...
The average Pakistani probably has no idea about any blasphemy on youtube, the people who are viewing the most blasphemy on youtube in pakistan are the people looking for it within the government so that they can block it.
The response was justified, apple took away what most people use as their GPS device, and replaced it with one that doesnt work, and doesnt work in spectacular fashion.
4G was supposed to be a high speed standard that allowed all users with a 4G enabled phone to get those high speeds. but, turns out that there are at least 3 specifications in use, and major manufacturers are picking sides (apple with LTE), making your new phone incompatible with your current network, forcing you to switch.
iphone5, i wouldn't put it on as a flop, but still an embarrassment, an embarrassment that apple assumed that their customers were stupid enough to buy the 4S from them again, just because they changed the number from 4S to 5 and re-released the same phone, and the pain is, they were right, their customers are that stupid.
sorry, mis-read. Windows 8 i wouldnt say is a flop, its a flop in waiting, or a success in waiting. its too early to tell as of yet if it will or will not be a flop as its market share is still increasing. http://betanews.com/2012/12/03/like-it-or-not-windows-8-usage-rises/, its also increasing pretty quickly.
http://readwrite.com/2012/06/05/5-ways-to-tell-which-programming-lanugages-are-most-popular seems C# is one of the most popular languages in use at the moment. how would you put C# down as a flop?
Facebook IPO wasnt a gaffe, it was a hedge fund scam. facebook was advised to give their IPO at a much higher value than they knew it could sustain, and the advisers hedged against facebook. made a lot of rich people richer, and fucked over some other rich people, and also fucked over some not so rich people.
as for apple maps, that deserves to be number 1, why the hell did apple even bother to release such a poor piece of software...
