Slashbots seem to contradict this with pretty much every comment. Example: a circle-jerk of narcissist STEM-guys who believe they're better than everyone else because of their infatuation of IT.
Unless you've used the same password for gmail as for whichever site has been hacked, it shouldn't matter. I found my gmail address, but the password had never been used at Google. The problem is if you've reused the password on a bunch of sites where your email address can be used as login.
The incentive is of course to get a better map. I'm happy to report bugs in software I use, as long as it isn't too inconvenient.
Reporting errors in Google Maps used to be fairly simple, if you knew how, but the constant changes in the UI makes it difficult. When they first introduced bicycle maps, there were quite a few grave errors initially (up/down a stairway, along a motorway where bicycling is prohibited). They were fixed pretty soon after I reported them.
After messing around in Maps for a while (web version), I see that it's still easy enough to report errors. Just click the speech bubble.

Espionage can be science!

Lots of people with high IQ are far from brilliant. It's only a test result, it doesn't tap into your brain. The supposed verification of an IQ test is actual academic achievement; when high IQ people have low academic achievement, it might just as well mean the test is flawed.
Wow, "2, interesting" for this childish nonsense. Slashdot really is failing hard these days.

In reality computers solder USB all the time for lower-bandwidth devices(e.g. Bluetooth, WebCam, SD reader, InfraRed, ethernet, WiFi, etc). It's dramatically cheaper and slightly more reliable than including a full USB port because you don't have to worry about charging phones(1000ma+) on a port that will only have a 250ma device on it or buy all the interconnects. The actual chips for most of this stuff are pennies. To build the same thing with interchangeable interconnects raises the power budget, the component budget, and the QA budget...
England imposed hefty student fees quite recently. There were riots, of course, but they led to nothing (except the arrest of a number of looters).
Roughly 80K were killed INSTANTLY from the blast. Blown to bits, vaporized, incinerated, or rather more prosaically by killed shrapnel. Others were killed when the city burned - lots of wooden construction, especially far from the city center. Many more were fatally wounded but did NOT die in the blast - burn or shrapnel victims who would die of infection or lack of treatment days, or even weeks later. The fatality list would have been smaller had the bombing not eliminated most medical staff and facilities within the city, leading to treatable wounds becoming septic.
You can't take the total fatalities, subtract the immediate deaths and arrive at the figure for "death by radiation poisoning". In point of fact, there were a great many people killed from radiation, but anyone close enough to the blast to receive a lethal dose ALSO received other injuries, meaning that, rather than having discrete categories for radiation poisoning, burns, shrapnel/blast and infection casualties, you have people who were wounded in multiple ways, and died of more than one cause.
