+ - Bill O'Reilly: science cannot explain the tides-> 1

Submitted by tverbeek
tverbeek (457094) writes "David Silverman of the American Atheists was a guest on The O'Reilly Factor to talk about the billboards the AAG has put up recently, including one declaring the Christian Nativity story a myth. O'Reilly, playing to his home-field advantage, figured he could show up his guest by citing a daily miracle that proved the legitimacy of religion, a mystery beyond the ability of science to grasp: "The tide comes in and it goes out, Mr. Silverman," he lectured. "It always comes in, and always goes out. You can't explain that.""

+ - Leaked: US government strategy to prevent leaks

Submitted by Steve
Steve (666) writes "The US government's 11-page document on how to get various US government agencies to prevent future leaks has been leaked to MSNBC. It doesn't get any more ironic than that. After the various leaks made by WikiLeaks, the US government understandably wants to limit the number of potential leaks, but their strategy apparently isn't implemented yet. The memo was sent this week to senior officials at all agencies that use classified material.

It's clear that the Obama administration is telling federal agencies to take aggressive steps to prevent further leaks. According to the document, these steps include figuring out which employees might be most inclined to leak classified documents, by using psychiatrists and sociologists to assess their trustworthiness. The memo also suggests that agencies require all their employees to report any contacts with members of the news media they may have."

+ - Iran's nuclear program set back 5 years?->

Submitted by mark72005
mark72005 (1233572) writes "Israel believes that Iran will not be able to produce a nuclear bomb before 2015. That is the assessment of the outgoing head of Israel's Mossad intelligence agency, Meir Dagan, in a briefing published on Friday. Israeli analyst Gerald Steinberg says one technical problem is foreign sabotage, such as the Stuxnet computer virus, which invaded Iran's nuclear facilities. It is widely believed that the virus was planted by Israel."

Comment: The story is: Linux is great (Score 2, Funny) 121

The take on this story SHOULD be that it's possible to have a small company choose embedded Linux to deploy innovative and interesting applications on. We could have chosen Windows Mobile, of course, but Linux was technically the better choice. That's the important part here. Open Source tools get you to market faster and cheaper.
