EA Shutting Down Video Game Servers Prematurely 341

Spacezilla writes "EA is dropping the bomb on a number of their video game servers, shutting down the online fun for many of their Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 games. Not only is the inclusion of PS3 and Xbox 360 titles odd, the date the games were released is even more surprising.

Submission + - Mac calculator is bad at math

RaSchi.de writes: "vowe has pointed to a couple of videos (here and here) on YouTube which show the calculator application doing some weird calculations with percentages. Apparently, in some locales such as the German one, the OS X calculator application discards decimal digits of the input when the percent button is used (e.g. adding x percent of tax to an invoice sum).

Submission + - "Hacking" a Fake Snow Day

Class Act Dynamo writes: "Two students in Trenton, Ohio face expulsion from their school and possibly some time in juvie for posting a fake snow-related announcement on the school district website. According to the article, there was no hacking involved. The girls somehow must have gotten the password. It will be interesting to find out how that happened. We'll probably find out next week that it was on a post-it note on the principle's desk."
