FCC's Net Neutrality Rules Hit With New Lawsuits From Telecom Companies
Tue Apr 14, 2015
The new rules prevent broadband providers from blocking or slowing any Internet traffic and from striking deals with content companies for smoother delivery to consumers. In other words, AT&T is mad that the rules are doing exactly what they're supposed to - protect us from them.
Study: Scientists Favor Female Applicants by 2-to-1 Margin
Mon Apr 13, 2015
Women have always been scarce in academic science, technology, engineering, and math, or STEM. That has been attributed to gender bias, prejudice against women who take maternity leave and other discrimination.
Which Way to Mars? Competing Visions for Missions Revive Debates
Fri Apr 10, 2015
I really think we need to scale back the amount of support NASA is giving to private companies like SpaceX. Congress keeps saying that private companies are the future of space exploration for the US, but they aren't - they're the future of privately owned space exploration for their own profi …
How Did Moon Form? Violent Cosmic Crash Theory Gets a Boost
Wed Apr 8, 2015
I still have trouble buying that Earth survived an impact with something the size of Mars intact. The relative velocities between Earth and Theia would had to have been very low to not destroy the Earth, and if that's the case, why would it then have destroyed Theia? The moon is only rou …
Top NASA Scientist: We
Tue Apr 7, 2015
Ahhh, arrogance. A staple of humanity. Yes, we have several locations in our solar system that might harbor life as we know it. That doesn't mean that they must, nor does that mean that we know how to find it if it does exist in those places. Most of the tests for alien …
HBO Now Launches in Time for 'Game of Thrones'
Tue Apr 7, 2015
Bummer. I would've signed up right now, but I'm on Android. I really wish companies would stop signing exclusivity agreements; it's only ever good for one company (in this case, Apple) involved - everybody else, including the (excluded) consumer, loses.

Hey, I've done this several times in Kerbal Space Program. Hurry up, NASA - you're falling behind.
Self-Driving Car Completes Cross-Country Trip in 9 Days
Thu Apr 2, 2015
In reply to:RJE-367644 #4 It's about safety. Once perfected, this technology has the potential to be vastly safer than any human driver ever could be. IF that happens (note I say "IF" with emphasis), it shouldn't matter one bit what people "like"; they should just have to deal with …

Bracing for a Big Power Grid Attack: 'One Is Too Many'
Wed Mar 25, 2015
I kind of find it odd that there's no mention of the Stuxnet virus in this article. I mean, yeah, letting people take potshots at transformers isn't good by any means, but a modified Stuxnet could cause more damage to multiple locations across the country, can be transmitted via USB flash driv …
