Comment And Just how are they Identifying my traffic? (Score 2) 247

This is about as useful as a tank of gas with no car. Especially since courts have already determined that an IP address does not identify a person, rather a machine (pc, router, etc). As evidenced in articles such as these: http://www.mediapost.com/publications/?fa=Articles.showArticle&art_aid=109242 ; http://yro.slashdot.org/story/09/07/08/1522247/Judge-Rules-IP-Addresses-Not-Personally-Identifiable?from=rss & http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20090708/1323075488.shtml I am sure there is more out there, but if we can't identify a person by IP, then why should I have to keep records of IP traffic for up to 2 years?

Nuclear Power Could See a Revival 415

shmG writes "As the US moves to reduce dependence on oil, the nuclear industry is looking to expand, with new designs making their way through the regulatory process. No less than three new configurations for nuclear power are being considered for licensing by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The first of them could be generating power in Georgia by 2016."

While I completely agree with your, points.. HTML5 Tools will not solve the problem.. Lazy "developers" who think they don't need to learn how to code in the first place being the basic fundamental problem in all aspects of popular web and application development.
