How can we honor the memory of a man like John Young? Like all men, he was governed by the laws of physics. It is a scientific fact that hearts and clocks slow down as they approach the speed of light. Dr. Hanlin's heart reached that speed at 7:35 pm last night, according to the coroner, transforming his matter into energy, into pure white light. Though he is no longer with us, he is all around us. ;)

It's a problem in every developed part of the world, as is proper disposal of e-waste. We simply can't keep this up.

I am buying as little as possible of both. Choosing foods that have as little packaging as possible, bringing my own container to the butcher, baker, resisting upgrading or buying gadgets as much as possible and finding people who can actually use my old stuff.

Comment Now if browsers would isolate resources (Score 2) 214

Now if only browsers would isolate resources from third party web sites so they can't scrape info from other parts of the page or grab keyboard/mouse input, and allow per-page access to certain hardware like mic/camera/filke system, then it would go much further.

Https stops ISPs and nodes from tapping info, but a lot of third parties end up with all of that anyway.

Just as PC is best known as the platform for pirates. Give me a break. Kodi is a great front end for PVRs and the best home theater software, for playing back your DVDs and BDs from a NAS, and streaming videos from various legal plugins for hosted content from good quality web sites like IGN and GiantBomb, as well as music and other broadcasts streamed online. Associating it with piracy is very incorrect, reductive, and an extreme disservice.
