Have you got any better ideas for a subtle way of testing a drink? A finger is a lot more discreet than a paper strip. Try explaining why you are dipping a paper strip into your drink without accusing the guy of being a rapist. Slipping your finger in the drink is much less noticeable and almost no one will question it. This can be casually done many ways, for instance sticking your index finger in the glass while grabbing around the brim (not uncommon). The idea of the nail polish, applied before going out, is that it gives a woman a discreet way to test her drink. If it tests positive she can then covertly escape without alerting the guy that she found him out.

I don't think Steve Kondik is the type that would stop supporting what he started. Plus there are a bunch of other devs that also work on it. Samsung gave 5 of the CyanogenMod devs free Galaxy S2 phones and only asked that they make CyanogenMod work on it. Hiring Steve may allow for Samsung to ship their phones already running CyanogenMod. That gives them 1up on other vendors, hardware that officially supports CyanogenMod.


Son Sues Mother Over Facebook Posts 428

from the check-your-family-status dept.
Most kids hate having their parents join in on a discussion on Facebook, but one 16-year-old in Arkansas hates it so much he has filed suit against his mother, charging her with harassment. From the article: "An Arkadelphia mother is charged with harassment for making entries on her son's Facebook page. Denise New's 16-year-old son filed charges against her last month and requested a no-contact order after he claims she posted slanderous entries about him on the social networking site. New says she was just trying to monitor what he was posting." Seems like he could just unfriend her.

There is no distinction between any AI program and some existent game.
