Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
No one wants 3D TV, so why is it being developed?
No one wanted "User Operation Prohibited", but that sadly found its way onto most DVDs.
Isn't market testing supposed to weed out dumb ideas like this?
Market-testing sessions may not last long enough to distinguish novelty-factor from long-term benefits.
The television is too casual a medium to complicate with shutter glasses.
For soaps, sitcoms, news, games-shows and other attention-deficit programming I agree. For one-hour-per-episode big-budget series and movies - I think a lot of people will be happy to don the glasses with an "and now I shall concentrate on what I'm watching" mentality...
What we REALLY need are braille street signs.

Theres a list of functions deprecated in PHP 5.3. I can't find an official list for PHP 6 though.
Assuming your argument-order frustration lies with the classic needle/haystack inconsistency throughout the string and array functions, the whole issue goes away if the PHP guys would simply evolve the string and array natives to be treated like objects:
in_array($needle, $haystack) -> $array->contains($needle)
strpos($haystack, $needle) -> $string->pos($needle)
Do that, and people will naturally migrate from the old inconsistent methods and move towards the more natural and consistent new methods without breaking anything.
If you really think it's worth breaking backwards compatibility, you could implement a friends suggestion - adding the PHP version number to the <?php wrapper: i.e. change to <?php6
I'd say two-finger clicking and two-finger scrolling are much more intuitive than double-clicking - but that's not saying much.
For the benefit of people wondering why banging two-fingers on their macbook trackpad doesn't seem to be doing anything:
System Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Trackpad
[x] Use two fingers to scroll
[x] Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click

By their argument, `cd
No they shouldn't - try it yourself:
bash$ mkdir sub; cd sub; rm .
rm: "." and ".." may not be removed
