+ - Slashdot creates beta site users express theirs dislike-> 4

The majority of comments dislike the new site while some do offer solutions to make it better. The question is will Slashdot force the unwanted change on its users that clearly do not want change?"

+ - Once Slashdot beta has been foisted upon me, what site should I use instead? 2

The new beta interface seems very well suited to tablets/phones but, it ignores the fact that the user base is, as one would expect, nerds sitting in front of very large LCD monitors and wasting their employers time. It's entirely possible that the browser ID information gathered by the site has indicated that they get far more hits on mobile devices where the new interface is reasonable but, I feel that no one has analyzed the browser ID (and screen resolution) against comments modded +5. I think you will find that most +5 comments are coming from devices (real fucking computers) that the new interface does not support well. Without an interface that invites the kind of users that post +5 comments, Slashdot is just a ho-hum news aggregation site that allows comments. So, my question is, once the beta is the default, where should Slashdot users go to?"

The best way would probably be to install GPS transmitters on all vehicles, and then write some code to plot them all on a map, but the price and privacy issues would probably prove this too difficult.

A second option would be to point video cameras at a stretch of road and then use some image recognition software to get the information you need.

Another option would be to get a group of small children, have them play the game where they pick a color or model of car and count how many they say, and then just tally their results.
