One downside of Java EE is the standard web framework - JSF. Whilst it has its uses for the most part there are simpler options for a "typical" architecture - JSON over REST being presented via JQuery. Spring MVC is a good choice, as is Struts 2.
A restful back end driven by an html/js/ajax client is my favorite architecture as well, however if you want to do a server-generated dhtml style application, I would suggest you have a look at Stripes - It's everything that Struts should be (and isn't).
So, what caused the sudden drop? The speed graph isn't fine enough to determine of the car was driven, and although there is a cabin temperature spike, the reporter says that happened the next morning when he was told to run the heater for a while. The engineers were obviously thinking it was temperature related, and thought that with a bit of "conditioning" it would all be ok. Thus the suggestion to run the heater, and to slow-charge. Finally the assumed the computer had it wrong and told him it was ok to drive - and were probably wrong.
So, the only real conclusion left is that the battery actually lost charge overnight. Did Broder sabotage the result by running the heater longer than claimed, or drove around in circles (again) to run it down, or maybe he just left the headlights on overnight?. We'll probably never know.
The alternative is that the Tesla batteries discharge substantially when not being used in cold weather. That should actually be pretty easy for someone else to test.
Iran needs other countries to refine its oil into fuel
Actually you want to check that statement. Iran increased it's domestic refining capacity dramatically in the last decade and is mostly self sufficient in that capacity now. It's become a very mis-quoted fact.
Biometrics are just "something you have" but with limited ability to replace. Its a weak token at best.
What do you do when your security system requires all three factors, but you already know the "something you are" has been compromised? Let's say it's a staff member with high level security clearance who you know has had their biometrics copied. Do you fire them because they can no longer meet the three factor requirements? or do you just allow them to continue on with two factor? and if the latter, then why did you have the third to begin with?.

Today we announce XBMC for Android. Not a remote, not a thin client; the real deal. No root or jailbreak required. XBMC can be launched as an application on your set-top-box, tablet, phone, or wherever else Android may be found.
The feature-set on Android is the same that you have come to expect from XBMC, no different from its cousin on the desktop. Running your favorite media-center software on small, cheap, embedded hardware is about to become a hassle-free reality. And as Android-based set-top-boxes are becoming more and more ubiquitous, it couldn’t be a better time. In fact, primary development was done on a Pivos XIOS DS set-top-box. And that is no coincidence, you will notice that Pivos is now listed as an official sponsor (more on that later). XBMC is stable and works great there, as well as on various tablets and phones. Though with Android, as many of you probably know, that is only the beginning of the story.
Enjoy the stereotypical dev-shot low-quality demo video. More video, including phone/tablet usage in the next post."
