Yeah, she's a substance abusing mess these days. I think she's burned way too many bridges to ever make it into a mainstream Hollywood film again.
Ah good, a Serb appears to explain their conduct in the Balkans. As usual its everyone else's fault.
Because the Serbs were oh so innocent.
"We'll have +100 exaFLOP systems in five years" - that's totally untrue. There's an active debate going on in the field whether or not we'll be at 1 exaflop by 2020. We absolutely will not get to 100 before then.

Stripping the DRM off an iBook means installing an earlier version of iTunes. It was just easier for me to find the torrents and use other eReading software. Love my iPhone, won't touch iBooks.
I bought a couple of books on iBooks until I figured out that they were crippled by DRM. Naturally I couldn't view them on my Nexus 7, so I did two things:
1. I found torrents to decrypted copies of the books I purchased.
2. Never bought another book from iBooks.
I still buy DRM-laden books from Kobo, but I can still decrypt those with ePUBee. The minute I can't do that any more, I won't buy from them either.
As a bit of a kudo, any SF nuts out there, head over to Baen, who has a big chunk of their catalog available as non-DRM ePubs (along with other formats as well).
It would be fairly easy to have DHS come up with a list of things (physical locations, services, etc) to designate as critical to national infrastructure. In fact, I'd be shocked if they don't already have such a list already.
The organization that runs these these locations/services would have to build into all of their software contracts a liability clause.
That's just not true. The internet and world wide web both existed in the early 90s, and neither was critical to national infrastructure at the time.
Correction: I meant to said medicaid (which is for poor people), not medicare (which is for the elderly).
This is essentially a government subsidy to software companies that produce crappy code.
Look at Walmart. it pays its employees so little money that they have to use government assistance like foodstamps and medicare. Walmart shareholders reap the benefit, and the public is left taking care of their employees.
Here's a better idea - if a company is making software that's critical to national infrastructure, make them liable for any bugs that occur (and for smaller companies, require them to carry insurance up to a certain level of liability).
It blocks the regular banner ads just fine. Nothing can block Slashvertisements however.
Nuke them from orbit. It's the only way...
Yes, but at least in the enterprise, downgrade rights will be around for a while, so whether Windows 8 ships with a unit or not, it seems likely to me that most businesses will be pushing out Windows 7 anyways.
No shit! These "improvements" do little more than make what seemed like Windows 2 or Presentation Manager act like Windows 3. I want the old desktop interface back. I don't give a fuck about Metro, and from everything I can tell, no one else does either.
