    How Much Would It Cost To Run The Millennium Falcon?

    sandisk ssd plus 240GB $55 @ Amazon

    I think you could break the giga-nano-barrier if you put 8 of those on your transducer. (I hereby reserve the right to avoid all retorts about how pragmatic of decision that it would be.)

    Legislation Seeks To Criminalize Warrantless Data Collection

    Time Warner Cable Plans For TV On The Internet

    This is funny. I tried to use one their CableCards to avoid that box, and it turned into a 6 week journey of cableless life. They respond to declining numbers and prospectives not to the desire to please customers. I laugh a bit each time I see them advertising their specials to new customers...

    Ballmer: Nobody Wants To Work At Amazon, Only Microsoft Can Compete With Apple

    I guess Balmer fails to realize that Microsoft continually fails at attempts to create new products lines with longevity and that their structuring (i.e. mass of employees) seems to be the primary culprit.

    Stephen Hawking: Aliens Could 'Conquer And Colonize' Our Planet

    Do we actually need someone to tell us this? Of course, aliens could turn the Earth into a harvest zone, among about a zillion other possibilities... ;p

    My two cents on EVGA. This is my last EVGA product.

    Truth is that just about all video cards are made poorly hence all of the failures, both AMD and NVIDIA.

    A Conversation With Edward Snowden

    He came out because the US government is using our money and consent to spy on us without telling us about it. Is this a government for the people and by the people? In this case, clearly not.

    Humans “May Accidentally Send Aliens A Computer Virus”

    I know this was one of my main concerns this morning. I'm not certain what I'd do if I accidentally infected an alien PC. The guilt would be perpetual.

    Should You Hope Your Child Never Has To Drive A Car?

    This is a strange question. I would be more concerned about the present moment of my children rather than drifting into a question so far off. Vehicular innovation of this sort is much further off than many anticipate since it requires public consent.

    Why Security Experts Are Using An Ancient Email Format In 2015

    Math Shows That Fewer Roads Lead To Less Traffic Congestion

    I was thinking about this the other day. It would also be neat to see towns exclusively use one-way traffic patterning to reduce passenger risk but it is too unconventional for most people.

    Windows 10 Installed 75M Times In One Month

    Competition? 99% Still Rent Cable Box

    I got a CableCARD and Time Warner ran me around for a couple months while it didn't work correctly. They do not care about supporting them for obvious reasons. It took forever for me to even get one, then the one they sent did not work, then they took forever to send me a second one finally...
