9 MA Cyberbullies Indicted For Causing Suicide 709 709

Raul654 writes "Massachusetts teenager Phoebe Prince committed suicide on January 14. After her death, it was revealed that she had been the target of cyberbullying for months (and that her teachers were aware of it and did nothing). Today, nine of her classmates were indicted on charges including harassment, stalking, civil rights violations, and statutory rape. Prince's suicide echoes the earlier case of Megan Meier, who committed suicide after being cyberbullied by a classmate's mother."

Comment Arcade Endings? (Score 1) 190 190

Classic games like Pac-Man really don't ever end (unless you call score/level roll-overs or freezes "endings"). A timely Pac-Man remake with a proper ending might cut to his guest appearance on "The Biggest Loser"... ..not sure if that refers to the player who keeps going until the end...or...

Submission + - Sharp NetWalker Sub-Netbook to be released 9/25-> 1 1

Kagetsuki writes: "The Sharp NetWalker (http://www.sharp.co.jp/netwalker/), a tiny netbook with an ARM Cortex core, OpenGL ES2.0, running a custom version of Ubuntu Netbook Remix will be released in Japan on September 25th. Yes, an ARM netbook with standard OpenGL ES 2.0 that runs a fully vendor supported Linux distrobution — and it fits in your pocket! It features a unique optical pointing device that is sort of like a track pad for your thumb (which works great and takes little getting used to), and of course includes a stylus and touchscreen as well. Sharp claims battery life of about 10 hours and the unit includes UBS 2.0 and WLAN. In store demo units can be found all across Japan, and I've personally confirmed it can play full screen ogg theora/vorbis files without dropping frames, ran some GL demos very nicely, and generally found no lag in application response time at all. Perhaps most impressive is application start up time, FireFox started within seconds and gnome-terminal almost instantaneously. I found the keyboard a bit difficult to use due to size, but the keys have a solid click to them which I liked. Prices range from 39,000 Yen to 45,000 Yen (about $400US to $460US) depending on what store you purchase from. I've got mine reserved already."
