I forget... is that better or worse than a blogger?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We should just bolt solar panels to the blades of the windmill.
And then bolt copies of that windmill to the tips of an even bigger windmill that's ALSO covered in solar panels.
On top of a hydro dam!
With an underground fission reactor that uses the reservoir lake as a cooling loop!
With natural gas backup generators!

I... didn't sleep one minute last night.
This is actually the third "nVidia SHIELD" product. There's now a Shield Portable, Shield Tablet, and this new Shield Console.
Why would we take the long way around the planet? There's a shorter route already in the works, although who knows if it will ever be approved.
I'd like a Canine to English translator too.
I'm pretty sure at least one of my dogs is the equivalent of Anchorman's 'Brick' character.

The title is sarcastic. According to Wikipedia, the film is anti-muslim.
What I'm curious about is how in the hell two disposable cups cost $127.30
Or how 220 gauze bandages comes to $424.60
Or 17 rolls of "pressure sensitive adhesive tape" (read: likely duct tape or equivalent) is $281.69
And a single plastic bag listed at $194.75
Does the US military electroplate their gear with precious metals before selling it, or what? I'm not even a US citizen, but those prices - sans a reasonable explanation - seem obscene.

Didn't Keystone XL die in senate the other day?
DDG uses a multitude of sources for it's results, like Yandex, Bing, Yahoo, and others (it will directly pull stuff from Wikipedia, Wolfram Alpha, etc) including it's own crawler. So no, it's not just a front end for someone else's results, it's more of an aggregator with a focus on privacy/anonymity.
Actually, Inquisition is available on last gen consoles (PS3 + X360), but that fact is often glossed over. It would have been interesting to see them included in the comparisons here.
Space: Above and Beyond followed a very similar path to the original BSG (only ran one season, etc.) Except it was, arguably, pretty well written. It was definitely one of those 'ahead of it's time' shows. I could see a reboot doing very well, if only someone could wrestle the rights away from Fox - and this time not spend such a huge chunk of the production budget on bleeding edge CGI (which ended up being the perfect reason to axe it).
...cordoned off like parking stalls?
I'm the same way - I love staring out the window of an airplane. I'll bring hours of entertainment on a flight, and then spend half the trip just wistfully gazing out the window.
One of my favorite moments (and quite probably a formative moment of my love for window seats on planes) was a landing at Victoria (or maybe it was Vancouver, been a while) airport. I was a young teenager, and was seated just aft of the left wing. I didn't know much about aircraft then, so when we touched down and all of a sudden the rear engine cowling splits in half and rejoins behind the exhaust to form a redirection chute (thrust reversal), and then the pilot throttles up (I've always loved the whistle of turbines and the power of a jet engine) while the plane shudders and rumbles to a stop... I was in heaven. I'm sure my eyes were the size of saucer plates. It was the most amazing thing I'd ever seen, like discovering you were actually riding a transformer the whole time. And that moment of surprise and joy is frozen in time in my memory, along with my love of window seats on airplanes. I'd be sad if they ever took that away.
Actually, Cowon makes an MP3 player (X7) with a 120 or 160gb HDD, although I haven't used that model myself.
They also have an audiophile device (Plenue1) that has 128gb flash + SD card (up to another 128). Beautiful device with some crazy features (when's the last time you saw optical out on an MP3 player?) - just don't ask about the price.
