Child Gets Nintendo 3DS Full of Porn For Christmas 370

dotarray writes "One Colorado family received more than they'd bargained for this Christmas when they gave five-year-old Braydon Giles a pre-owned Nintendo 3DS that apparently still contained 'graphic images' from a previous owner. From the article: 'Refurbishing is an art, as well as a craft. The whole point is to make a gadget feel pristine, even when it used to be owned by a cult leader, a scout leader or an exhibitionist. Sadly, someone in a Colorado GameStop stopped refurbishing before the job was complete. So much so that 5-year-old Braydon Giles opened his Xmas gift — a Nintendo 3DS — and discovered images of naked people doing less than pristine things. As Channel 9 News tells it, Braydon showed the 3DS to his brother Bryton. He wanted his help to remove these weird pictures. '"
It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - The Wrong Way to Dispose of Server Boxes (blogspot.com)

kunk28 writes: I work for a large Internet co-location and hosting company. One of our customers installed a bunch of servers the other night at one of our Salt Lake City data centers. Instead of taking and disposing of all the empty server boxes themselves they decided to try to fit them all in our dumpster. In the morning when we came into work we were welcomed by the following sight. Obviously they think they are funny or something.

Submission + - 30 years since the 'Wow!' signal

smooth wombat writes: Thirty years ago, a signal was received by Ohio State University's Big Ear Radio Observatory which, for a brief moment, set the scientific community ablaze. Had we heard the first proof of an intelligent civilization outside our own?

Unfortunately, the signal was not repeated and has not been heard from since despite the best efforts of astronomers during the last three decades. The debate over what the signal actually was continues to this day but new help is on the way. The SETI institute will soon be using the Allen Telescope Array in California to search the same area of sky. The array uses dozens of separate radio dishes to produce an instrument that will eventually become more sensitive than the world's largest single-dish telescope in Aricebo.

Submission + - Man Kept Off Flight Because of Book

bossesjoe writes: "A man was stopped from boarding his flight from Philadelphia to Phoenix when a random luggage search revealed a copy of Hayduke Lives! by Edward Abbey. The book prominently features a bomber on the cover holding sticks of dynamite and was enough for the security officials to detain him. Later he was also told because he purchased his ticket on September 11th, 2001 (even though it was before the attacks) and because of his expired driver's license (which was not expired) that could not take the flight. After purchasing another ticket for a later date he again detained and searched but was allowed to pass through security forty five minutes after being cleared. Is this what airport security has come to?"
