It's not the World Trade Center, and it's not Bali. It's a single cafe and a maximum possible body count than your typical school shooting in the US (which can hardly hold the news media's attention for more than a week any more).
This news wouldn't have made it out of Australia (if even NSW) if it weren't for the Islamic bogeyman angle.
A plastic battleship would be unstoppable.
Four red pegs should do it.

By all means complain about a violation of privacy, but it isn't by the state. Rather this is the result of a financial system that promotes, aggravates, and profits off of poverty.
known for its superb conductivity of heat
Exactly: pinpoint heat sources will see that energy rapidly disbursed throughout the entire suit rather than stay concentrated in a hot spot.
Water's heat conductivity, its ability to spread heat out into meaninglessness, is one of the reasons why it's effective at extinguishing fires.
I think they would be very happy if the rest of Europe were utilizing GLONASS, a system they can shut down or manipulate if they need to.
But they themselves can't get it to work, as was highlighted in the link I posted. So why would a Europe unable to deploy Galileo use GLONASS instead of GPS?

Are the accounts "linked?"
I'm asking more about what happens to DRM'd content that was purchased from Sony's ebook store now that Sony is pulling out (e.g. authorization servers).
