Very useful, thanks!
Lenovo were already in the smartphone market with several Android phones. In fact, they were the fifth largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, shipping 45.5 million smartphones in 2013. Looks like most of those were in emerging markets though, so the Motorola Mobility acquisition should give them a big step forward into the western markets.
If the entire box is dead, wouldn't that imply mishandling during shipping?
Not necessarily. It could also be an awful batch of drives off a production line with really shit quality control.
With Steam OS on its way, surely leading to more big title releases making their way to the Linux platform, could Linux gaming be set to take the number two spot from Mac?"
Honestly at this point, HTML should be obsoleted and everyone use an XML standard like RSS, or something semantic, and lay that out directly with CSS, since the entire web is converging on an blog-post/article-like data model.
One of the main goals of HTML is to be that semantic format you wish for. It has taken years (far too many) for it to get to that point, but in general, it works. You mark up your content semantically with HTML and then leave all presentation to be taken care of with CSS. At least, that's what web developers should be doing nowadays. I'm not saying HTML is perfect, far from it in fact, but in conjunction with CSS it does already provide a means to separate content from presentation.

It is an improper extension of the scientific method to claim that everything* that lacks scientific evidence therefore does not or cannot exist.
I was very careful to not claim that. To have done so would be stupid. For the same reason, you can not disprove that I am riding a pink unicorn on the moon, although I would hazard a guess that you'd think that be extremely unlikely.
No scientific evidence. Fine, I accept that; scientific evidence is exactly what I would need in order to believe there is a god. Needing anything less seems crazy to me.
However, something that is strictly and purely supernatural (which God is pre-eminently) is by the very definition of the word "supernatural" beyond having a nature that science can speak about.
Oh, man, that old argument. By that reasoning, I had better be on the lookout for ghosts, fairies, goblins, magic unicorns and all manner of supernatural beings? Do you ever try walking through walls just in case it might work? Nobody can prove you don't have that supernatural ability.
So you're saying science can be improved over time, taking new evidence into account to provide a more accurate understanding of how the universe works? That's a good point; it's very much the opposite to religion that continues to hold fast to myth and legend.
Scientific reasoning is justification that there is no evidence for a god.
Science is observable, testable, predictable and based on empirical evidence. Religion is based on myth, legend and anecdotal evidence. You can believe in both, but that rather suggests you don't really understand either.
You say you're out of here but I bet I see you, Anonymous Coward, posting here again.
The announcement on the mailing list says that developers need to send a signed email (signed with a key in the Debian keyring) to the Valve contact to request a redemption code. So my question is, what does it take to be recognised by Debian as a developer and get your key added to their keyring? Is this just for core Debian coders, or do documentation authors, package maintainers, etc, count too? This could be a great incentive for more people to get involved with the more mundane tasks that people usually shy away from, although if it's that easy, it would be ripe for abuse too.
