ZOMG! Apple Products Were Almost Banned!

What do you get when a company fiercely fights another for market share and starts going into “evil genius” mode?

Military Technology: Ship-Mounted Lasers Destroy Enemy Aircraft

I normally don’t write about the military, but this is awesome and could be used for defensive purposes. The US Navy has recently gotten involved in a project that, by 2014, will have solid-state lasers deployed aboard ships. The level of awesomeness here is not to be underestimated.

They count on you not having enough time to read through all the shit they write. They count on you perpetuating their jobs because, well, “things weren’t so bad forme when he served a term.” Today, we’ll discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of Internet-related legislation and how it affects your ability to continue looking at pictures of kittens without looking over your shoulder.

Bank Of America Introduces Video-Chat Tellers, Bringing A Whole New Meaning To The Word “Cam Girl”

Isn’t that just awesome? Now, instead of screaming at an ATM because you can’t get your money out, you get in a private chatroom with some girl or dude who calms you down and points out that the gun you just pulled out won’t really kill the person behind the screen.
