Man Arrested For Taking Photo of Open ATM 1232

net_shaman writes in with word of a Seattle man who was arrested for taking a photo of an ATM being serviced. "Today I was shopping at the downtown Seattle REI. I was about to buy a Thule hitch mount bike rack. They were out of the piece that locks the bike rack into the hitch. So I was in the customer service line to special order one. It was a long line and while I was waiting, I saw two of guys (employees of Loomis, as I later learned) refilling the ATM. I walked over and took a picture with my iPhone of them and more interestingly of the open ATM. I took the picture because I'm fascinated by the insides of things that we don't normally get to see. ... That was when Officer GE Abed (#6270) spun me around and put handcuffs on me."

How To Store Internal Hard Drives? 393

mike writes "I have been ripping all my movies and TV shows for easy viewing through a media PC. Because I would rather not rip everything again I'm looking for a simple backup solution. I'm considering a hard drive dock and several internal hard drives to use as 'disks' to back things up every once in a while but I don't know what the best way to store internal drives would be in the meantime. Could they sit together in any empty box and be OK, or would a number of externals be worth the slightly higher cost with fewer worries about storing them in the meantime?"

Sure you don't have to guess -- you can just make stuff up! Team Polizei crapped on my lawn! Alex Roy hates white people! I have a hotel on the moon!

Team Polizei were not involved in that accident. There was no second Team Polizei car. They may be guilty of untold numbers of moving violations, but that one was not one of theirs. Please keep your team members of the idiots straight.

+ - Carbon Nanotubes For Non-Volative Computer Memory

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Researchers at the University of California have developed telescoping carbon nanotube memory which is non-volatile and may offer the possibility of atomic-scale computer data storage that would replace both RAM, FLASH RAM, and hard drive storage in the next few cycles.
