    What Roles Do Corporate R&D Labs Have in the Web Era?

    The very nature of government-funded research compells research to be done at a snail's pace. Once the project is complete--the money is gone. This is another attempt at changing thinking. The government invents nothing, private industry (so long as its around) invents everything.

    Upcoming Military Robot Could Feed on Dead Bodies

    Are you fucking kidding? War has resolved more differences in opinion to date than diplomacy will in forever. I'm sure you believe that the Holocost could have been averted through this means, but, it was tried, and it failed. TBH the only reason we have to resort to "smart" weapons is because...

    ‘Best Lightbulb in the World’ Costs $119

    This is a perfect example of taking advantage of the ecotards. I researched a few different companies' products last year for my town to replace sodium street lamps with LED. For about $3k, a city could replace one streetlight, and pay for itself in about five years with the power savings. The...

    Facebook Follies Get Trooper In Trouble

    You mean like Democrats? wow. That's like telling the guy that's building your house that it doesn't matter how many nails he bends building it so long as it gets done. Or handing out a 'participation award'. Or accepting said award.

    Uncool To Be a Mac User in These Tough Times?

    'Apple fans will tell you that Apple PCs are not only slicker-looking but that they're also built better, last longer, and run a better operating system. In other words, you're not just paying the Apple premium for looks, but also for brains and brawn.' In real world terms this translates to...

    Scientists Are Studying Déjà Vu...Again

    Let's completely dismiss the notion that it may be a genuine premonition intended to allow foresight into a life-changing event, however trivial that may be. We cannot allow the ideation of a higher being being the instigator of this phenomenon.

    Surgeons Using Twitter During Brain Surgery

    Watch the video... there was a female using an unshrouded blackberry in the OR, supposedly a sterile environment. No way to sterilize that device with its many nooks and crannies without an autoclave, which would destroy the device.

    Workers Hold Boss of Sony France Hostage

    The business of America is business. I realize that there are people like you in the world that can get by with a library computer, park showers, and soup kitchens.

    Four questions: Tell me how long-term profit is possible if you aren't going after short-term profit? What CEO tells their R&D department to close up because he is worried about it cutting in to his 'bonus check'? Where would we be without the motivation of monetary gain? (I am...

    Bum Reality Website Gets Media Boost

    The military will take anyone that hasn't made repeated, calculated 'mistakes' in life. This guy is a leech, and should be treated as such. To think that he is able bodied and his only motivation is to take his beggars can to the www is apalling. Every liberal should be screaming. He is taking...

    MPAA Study Links Piracy To Terrorists

    I watched Terminator 2, in the Saudi Arabian desert before it was in theaters in the US. Thankfully I didn't have to wait the other six months before I got home, as my friends wrote me letters telling me al about it. I'm as conservative as the next one, but when it comes to Hoollywoude, I'm...

    Facebook, Google Helping To Stop Stimulus Scams

    I'll play Captain Obvious here for the few that didn't 'get it'. Our current President seems to feel that private industry has only killed our economy, and thus we need to implement a governmental solution to fix it. Yet in the face of this, the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) is relying on data...

    Corsair’s New Case

    My positive take on this is the layout, what looks to be a tray design, and grommets on the tray as opposed to the slots as present on my p180. What bothers me is what looks to be air intake slots on the floor of the case directly in front of the PS. That plus sitting on a floor equals a choked...
