Submission + - Military Drone attacks are not "hostile" (huffingtonpost.com)

sanzibar writes: Not satisfied with the legal conclusion of the DOJ, the Obama administration finds other in-house lawyers willing to declare a bomb dropped from a drone is not "hostile".

The strange conclusion has big implications in determining the Presidents compliance with the law. If drone strikes are in fact hostile and he continues his Libyan campaign past Sunday, he may very well be breaking the law.

Submission + - Automotive X-Prize Reveals First 31 Teams

An anonymous reader writes: The Automotive XPRIZE announced yesterday the first 31 teams to have signed on for the competition to build 100 mpge (mile-per-gallon equivalent) automobiles. The list contains obvious contenders like electric bike vendor ZAP, electric truck peddler Phoenix Motorcars, Munich's überefficient Loremmo AG, and Elon Musk-backed Tesla Motors as well as Cornell University and a laundry list of other less well known names. There's even a team commited to an Open Source-like license. Notable is the total absence of any established manufacturer. Contrary to expectations of a Big Auto win, could the AXP be up for grabs?
