It really helps a lot on those annoying sites.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
bash has network connectivity (since version 4 I think).
Let's just get this out of the way now: If Hitler were alive today he'd be able to have Google remove all links to anything relating to himself as the Nazi leader.
He could ask that if you search for his name, you won't find any links about him being the Nazi leader. However, if you search for Nazi leader, all these links would show up again. Same for 'genocide jews',
It's not like removing the information from their index without removing it from an actual website is going to make the information 'private' again.
Nope, because google does not have to remove it from their index. All they have to remove is the link between a search term and a search result. The result can still show up if you use a different search term.
And leave behind a 500M people market? Abandon all their current contract and cloud services? I don't think so. The EU is the second biggest market after China.
Even if they do, several European companies will quickly fill the void (like in China) and the USA based companies will have an extra couple of competitors in the world.
Rip the entire cd to one flac file and a cue file?
Sympa is quite good but used mostly in France.
Well, there are open minded when it comes to gender but don't you dare to upload a picture of a mother who is breast-feeding her child.
Beheading, on the other hand are OK.
The discussions are the reason to come to Slashdot, and the beta trivializes them entirely. It looks like the comment section on a generic news site.
The comments now look like an afterthought, whereas they used to be the primary focus of the site."

Slashdot Beta is a trend-following attempt to give Slashdot a fresh look, an approach that has led to less space for text and an abandonment of the traditional Slashdot look. Much worse than that, Slashdot Beta fundamentally breaks the classic Slashdot discussion and moderation system.
If you haven't seen Slashdot Beta already, open this in a new tab. After seeing that, click here to return to classic Slashdot.
We should boycott stories and only discuss the abomination that is Slashdot Beta until Dice abandons the project.
We should boycott slashdot entirely during the week of Feb 10 to Feb 17 as part of the wider slashcott
Moderators — only spend mod points on comments that discuss Beta
Commentors — only discuss Beta

Keep this up for a few days and we may finally get the PHBs attention.
The only thing proprietary are the video drivers and that's because GPU vendors are douche bags.
Ubuntu Touch uses libhybris to use the same proprietary drivers as android. In that regard it's not more open dan android itself.
No physical properties?
that's not true.
Name one that has been measured. We don't know anything for sure expect the decay.
Everything else comes from theoretical calculations and predictions.
Nobody is going to make you a car out of this, but some of these 'exotic' materials they need to create in a lab can tell us some interesting things about the early universe.
It's not gonna tells us much as it is extremely short lived. They haven't 'seen' the atom itself. They measured it's decay products. There are no physical properties known of un-un-pentium because it's extremely difficult to measure anything about it.
