Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "After two years of development, Google today released Android Studio 1.0, the first stable version of its Integrated Development Environment (IDE) aimed solely at Android developers. You can download the tool right now for Windows, Mac, and Linux from the Android Developer site. Google first announced Android Studio, built on the popular IntelliJ IDEA Java IDE, at its I/O Developer conference in May 2013.

Yes, and I have a big problem with them being called "theories." They are at best hypotheses, and likely pure speculation. Scientists get mad when creationists say, "Oh, but you call it the THEORY of Evolution, that means it's not necessarily true!" and say creationists don't know the meaning of the word theory. Ok, then, use it correctly yourselves.

+ - Website Pays Dearly for Fighting Negative Review->

Submitted by WubbaDucki
WubbaDucki (548885) writes "An online retailer that threatened to "fine" a couple $3,500 for leaving a negative review online a website has now been ordered to pay $306,750 in compensation and legal fees. John and Jennifer Palmer won the verdict as compensation for KlearGear damaging their credit record with a bogus debt claim.

Back in 2009, Jennifer Palmer left a negative review of the company after it failed to deliver two desk toys ordered by her husband. Three years later, KlearGear demanded that the couple withdraw the review within 72 hours or face a fine of $3,500. The fine is for violating a non-disparagement clause in the company's terms of sale, which says that customers cannot write negative reviews about their products or purchases."
