Mann also says she has not been paid any royalties by the company since Sept. 30, 2005
Looks like the company did receive the termination notice. But likely a *software bug* in the streaming software missed the removal
The main reason why 10GbE took time to arrive is simple : connectors are not the good-old RJ45 used for 10Mb, 100Mb and 1GbE. The RJ45 connector is small, cheap and backward compatible. The 10GbE connectors are deep, expensive and not RJ45-compatible, hence cannot be used as a 1GbE port.
10GbE is appearing on servers because the price order is compatible with the expensive and deep connector. It won't appear on commodity motherboards until a smaller connector is designed.
It is not dangerous to touch the positive terminal with your bare skin, because 12V is not a hazardous voltage.
So the answer is simply : no, it is not dangerous to touch my car battery (though the battery can be dangerous in a lot of other ways).
I learned something today
The first one is a "welfare" plan for 2 EUR (approx. 2.5 USD as of today), granting one hour of outbound calls and 60 SMS (inbound calls and SMS are free). It's actually free for the first 3 millions users of Free's DSL service.
The second and main plan is an all-encompassing plan granting unlimited calls, SMS, MMS, and up to 3GB of data, plus free access to Free's urban wifi network. Free voice communications include international calls to fixed lines in 40 countries, and to fixed AND mobile lines in 4 countries, including the United States and Canada. It cost around 20 EUR (approx. 25.5 USD), or 16 EUR for existing DSL users (approx. 20 USD). Tethering, VoIP and P2P are allowed.
Free has been previously know for sinking DSL plans' prices below 30 EUR in France when it launched its service in 2002. It is speculated that the same thing will happen to mobile plans now, with Free's competitors Orange, SFR and Bouygues Telecom having their backs against the wall."

This is a major change for the mobile market in France. Free already changed the internet providers market in France, causing the death of AOL in France."
I'm I the only one who is concerned by the validity of their experiment. The last experiment lets me very dubious.
Imagine you have 3 smileys. They have similar ratings, but for sure there is one you prefer, one you rate 2nd and one you rate 3rd. Now, let's just see the result we would have for each scenario.
Rating of cards 1/2/3 ; 3rd card chosen after initial choice ; 3rd card chosen without initial choice (so just between card 2 and card 3)
1/2/3 ; False (1 chosen on first pass) ; False
1/3/2 ; True (1 chosen on first pass) ; True
2/1/3 ; False (1 chosen on first pass) ; False
2/3/1 ; True (2 chosen on first pass) ; True
3/1/2 ; True (1 chosen on first pass) ; False
3/2/1 ; True (2 chosen on first pass) ; True
Which makes in the first experiment 50% chances of choosing the third card and 66% when we made a previous "preselection". This is approximately the figures children had. Monkeys had lower 3rd card preference, maybe because they prefer to take cards in order.
About the rest of the article, I'm just as dubious. If you choose a product, for sure you rate it better. It's called the cause of you choosing it, not a consequence
Without a steady supply of iPad 2's, civilization would collapse overnight.
I didn't know Civilization had been ported to ipad
After that, the last issue would be the power supply, but I guess this is just simple DIY.
The researchers, based at MIT's Picower Institute for Learning and Memory, targeted an enzyme called PAK which affects the number, size and shape of connection between brain cells. They found that inhibiting the enzyme stopped mice with Fragile X Syndrome behaving in erratic ways.
"This implies that future treatment may still be effective even after symptoms are already pronounced" according to Dr Susumu Tonegawa of the research group."

The top 10 is heavily dominated by IBM and BlueGene systems, with only Cray holding rank 2 and 3, Dell holding rank 8 and SGI holding rank 10.
The first non-US system is the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, ranked 9. Japan is loosing ground, with their first system ranked 14.
