Kindle sure sold a lot of models really fast... I don't think we can call ebook readers dead this early in the game.
Those Lego Mindstorms NXT's are totally awesome! I spent some time googling them and am blown away at what can be done with them.
I think that my kids might be ready for them but will probably take the approach of getting them for myself and "letting" them play with it. If their interest grows then we can expand it.
It seems quite good here and I frequently have to defend slashdot on other sites, purely because of the Microsoft hate here (which in my opinion has significantly weakened over the last 10 years)
I will say one thing about the comments here and that's that a contrary position is not shunned completely and mod'd down, Digg comments are absolutely and utterly horrible, to be blunt they are effectively a clusterfuck of circle jerk madness - if you're not part of 'them' you're the enemy and be prepared to be mod'd down - heavily, gave up 3 times with Digg and the last time was the final time, not interested (and don't even use the site anymore)
To make my point though, I could have said how terrible slashdots comments and users are, contrary to your claim but as long as I wrote it out fairly well, I'd still be moderated relatively well
I don't understand why 32 stories is worth noting.
I don't know what's up with you, but I get mod points about 1-2 per week.
Used to be the same way for me, then I found myself not being online much over the summer. Haven't gotten em since!
How is that in any way less strange?!
