SCO v. IBM Is Officially Reopened 104

stoilis writes "Groklaw reports that the SCO vs IBM case is officially reopened: 'The thing that makes predictions a bit murky is that there are some other motions, aside from the summary judgment motions, that were also not officially decided before SCO filed for bankruptcy that could, in SCO's perfect world, reopen certain matters. I believe they would have been denied, if the prior judge had had time to rule on them. Now? I don't know.'"

Green Lantern Writer To Pen Blade Runner Sequel 326

First time accepted submitter MovieEnthusiast writes "Alcon Entertainment, the production company that own the rights to Blade Runner, have announced that the Blade Runner sequel will be re-written by Michael Green (The Green Lantern) and hinted at other possible Blade Runner spin-offs. From the press release: 'Writer Michael Green is in negotiations to do a rewrite of Alcon Entertainment's "Blade Runner" sequel penned by Hampton Fancher ("Blade Runner," "The Minus Man," "The Mighty Quinn") and to be directed by Ridley Scott. Fancher's original story/screenplay is set some years after the first film concluded. Alcon co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove will produce with Bud Yorkin and Cynthia Sikes Yorkin, along with Ridley Scott. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEO's of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers. Green recently completed rewrites on "Robopocalypse" and Warners Bros "Gods and Kings."'"

The chips that come out of the fab are not 100% perfect.

While this may be true for these graphics cores, I don't think it's necessarily true for Intel's CPU chips. I think they have their design so refined that their yield is close to 100% for all but the highest density cores.

Otherwise they simply would not be able to offer multi core chips. Maybe someone in the know could comment on this.

Well said. Clearly a new generation is posting to slashdot. Because in the past when this issue has come up (as it continually does now with increasing frequency) the engineers of old would explain with numerous posts that it's impossible for the FAA or anyone else to keep track of the countless electronic devices made and assure that each and every one does not jam the systems.

But apparently the 15 year olds of today can't live for a few minutes with their devices turned off.

Also, the onus would be upon the FAA (not just the FCC) to make sure every device in the world wouldn't hurt the avionics - a now impossible task when you consider the sheer magnitude of things that have batteries.

This argument appears every few months. It just doesn't make sense to risk a bad GPS airplane reading that leads to a collision so someone can play with their phone.
