The White House Listed On Real Estate Website 123

Forget visiting the White House, if you have $10 million you can own it. At least that is the price for the president's home on the real estate website Redfin. From the article: "Obviously this is an error. It looks like Redfin software pulled an example listing from the website by mistake. That example listing was the White House. We have e-mailed Redfin for comment." I know it's historic but it still looks a bit on the high side according to the comparables in the area.

the Wolfenstein people said it was a piece of cake porting Wolf 3D to the iPhone

I wonder if this isn't really about Apple cutting off script kiddies at the knees by now allowing half-ass interpreters and extra "layers" on top of what is their gig. and the subsequent whining as the copy/paste elite have no templates to apply their incredibly awesome skillz on.


Simulation of Close Asteroid Fly-By 148

c0mpliant writes "NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory have released a simulation of the path of an asteroid, named Apophis, that will come very close to Earth in 2029 — the closest predicted approach since humans have monitored for such heavenly bodies. The asteroid caused a bit of a scare when astronomers first announced that it would enter Earth's neighborhood some time in the future. However, since that announcement in 2004, more recent calculations have put the odds of collision at 1 in 250,000."

Comment runescape is a scam (Score 1) 118

I unwittingly let my son play runescape, and even dumber paid for extra "gold".

here is how that process works.

1. pay someone for gold.
2. meet that person in the game, get the gold
3. get robbed of the gold within minutes by another player
4. repeat (if dumb enough to buy more gold)

I feel these online games exist for one reason, to create an environment where users can be scammed.
