Submission + - ASUS Transformer Prime and GPS issues->

tdp252 writes: "Geeks after having unwrapped their Quad-Core Transformer Prime are finding that the tablet is not reliably acquiring a GPS lock. There are uncertainties on the XDA forums about whether this is merely due to a software issue or if a more serious design fault may be at play. The Prime uses an aluminum metal-backing that while desirable as a styling element could potentially block signal reception."

Submission + - Drip Irrigation for Dummies?

tdp252 writes: The South-East United States has been experiencing a multi-year drought that has forced many local governments to tighten water restrictions, forcing home owners to stop watering outdoors. Many people are having great difficulty establishing new plants outdoors or just keeping what they have alive. Yesterday I saw a "Drip Irrigation for Dummies" kit in the local Home-Depot. What experiences do Slashdotters have on drip irrigation systems for the notice? Are there any that are better than others? How difficult are they to setup and maintain vs. a traditional sprinkler system? Should I just embrace the inevitable and plant cacti?

Any program which runs right is obsolete.
