Submission + - More on missile defense: will the Ground-based Midcourse Defense ever work? (thebulletin.org)

Lasrick writes: Kingston Reif analyzes GMD (Ground-based Midcourse Defense) and shakes his head over the House Armed Services Committee (last year) authorizing the Pentagon to spend $360 million more than it asked for to expand the flawed system. "The Committee also provided an additional $100 million to begin deploying existing ground-based or SM-3 interceptors — not the interceptors recommended by the National Research Council — on the East Coast of the United States by the end of 2015 to defend against potential future long-range ballistic missiles launched from Iran."

Submission + - HP considers printers that add adverts (technologyreview.com)

holy_calamity writes: "Printing web pages rarely yields nice results so HP Labs researchers developed software that extracts the text and images from a page, discards the rest, and produces a readable magazine-like print out. It also introduces contextual adverts tailored to the printed page. HP reckons users will tolerate this in return for more readable pages that save paper and ink."
