Blogger Sued By Restaurant For Bad Review 166

Voulnet writes "A recently opened Benihana branch in Kuwait sued 248am.com, a well known Kuwaiti blog, for posting a bad restaurant review about its food, asking for the blog to be shut and more than $17,500 in damages (5000 KD). Kuwaiti bloggers everywhere have announced their support for the reviewing blogger; even though it is highly unlikely the restaurant will get anything from the court, since journalists are almost always favored in libel cases in Kuwaiti courts. It seems Benihana hasn't heard of Cooks source magazine."

Julie188 writes "Greg Kroah-Hartman has released five new stable Linux kernels, correcting minor errors of their predecessors and including improvements which are unlikely to generate new errors. As so often with kernel versions in the stable series, it remains undisclosed if the new versions contain changes which fix security vulnerabilities, although the number of changes and some of the descriptions of those changes certainly suggest that all the new versions contain security fixes."

+ - US Air Force Buying another 2200 PS3. 1

bleedingpegasus (679562) writes "US Air Force apparently buying another batch of PS3, 2200 to be exact. This is after a machine that under development by the Air Force, codenamed "Roadrunner" rumoured to have bought 300 PS3 (old-big version) only to be dismantled and its Cell processor combined to make some kind of neuromorphic brain for combining images to form higher resolution radar's results looks to be successful.

What tickles me most is not the idea behind it — but why Cell processor by Sony? And why not just buy the processor directly, won't that be any cheaper?"

There is a drug test gate before Michael can go into the heaven. Drug-sniffing dogs are barking loudly at Michael...

Officer: Do you bring any drugs Mike?
Michael: Nope
... Officer did body search and found nothing
Officer: Open your clothes
(Michael strips, but dogs keep on barking)
... Officer looking at Michael in disbelief why dogs keep barking on him
Michael: Ok ok, i'll let you open my stomach... but please leave some Xanax and Demerol in...
