Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Google has logged something like 10,000 miles without any accidents. The car is aware of its environment, and capable of compensating for things like red lights, road closures, and map inaccuracy.
There are still plenty of places that will send you a widely accepted cert for like $10. Just search for cheap SSL certificates.
You could code your application to be tolerant of those kinds of outages. The services backing feature X aren't available? Then don't render the controls for feature X on the page.
This is a good reason. High schools aren't built like a modern college lecture hall with a set of outlets at every other seat. To support 30 students on netbooks you'd need a daisy-chained fire hazard mess of power strips.
That's just bad code. The author of the page should at the very least be putting the call to Google Analytics below the footer. Preferably, they'd make it a callback to document.ready().
How are prices in the developed world "cheaper than capitalistic pricing would otherwise allow"? What does that even mean? Do you think there's an artificial ceiling on music prices?
That's just Apple refusing to support a DRM scheme other than their own, especially one that essentially broke Apple's DRM.
Unencumbered media would still have loaded onto an iPod just fine. If Real weren't so incompetent, they would've pioneered DRM-free music sales, and might have saved themselves from becoming irrelevant.
This post is a perfect illustration of why I can use attendance at a for-profit as a signal that a candidate's critical thinking skills are deficient.

My local community college charges less per credit hour for an out of state student than U Phoenix does for their AA credit hours! Residents pay a third of what out-of-staters pay!
Is it just me, or does this not work on Chrome?
It seems like you've confused the bay area with Los Angeles. It's currently a balmy 51 F in Cupertino.
Water is a fantastic shield. The halving thickness of water is 18cm. At 1.8 meters away, you'd only have
Not to mention, the material that's emitting radiation, if it were to get loose, would quickly settle on to the seabed. These are the heaviest of metals.
He didn't guess her password, he guessed the answer to the secret question used to reset her password. If I remember right, the question was, "Where did you meet your husband?" The answer –"Wasilla High."
Coverage of this story would be much better if it communicated how terrible it is to secure an account with such un-secret "secret" knowledge.
Why is Bing your default search if think Google usually yields better results?
