Perhaps the American roto-loo can't handle the extra vodka load put upon it by the Russians. maybe why it's been sent back for a redesign.

Releasing dodgy CDMA handsets initially, then giving up on the technology completely didn't help them much either.
Now only if they would drop dead-horse symbian. Have they heard of this android thing?
Or sell them through Ikea, the only other exposure Americans have to scandinavian design.
If they didn't attack supposed terror states then there wouldn't be such a need for new war gear. See, you have to spend some in order to be able to, uhh, spend some more.
But really, I think satellites can completely eliminate any need for whateversonic warbirds. We already use them for spying, and no doubt they're already working on dropping bombs, now all that's needed is a space troop carrier. Keep a small platoon up there in capsules ready to be dropped at a moments notice to sniff out osama's droppings (or whatever is taking them so long.) You could keep them in a sleep statis state or even cryogenically frozen and let the reentry thaw them out.
Are they forgetting something? Aren't these so called "locals", better known as customers, the ones these data centres are meant to serve? Doesn't it make more sense to keep them nearest to your customers?
But sure, it's a great place for the US military to keep their flying saucer schematics.
What the kernel developer clowns in these comments fail to grasp is just how a computer is used by the other 99% of the human race. If it doesn't "just work" then it's rubbish. As for the argument that BSD is easier to use than Linux, you forget that even Linux has no real useability in the first place. Sure it installs over vista with a few clicks but what after that? Need to install an app, but oh first you need to search the repository for some library with one billion dependencies and then what do you mean I can't just drag and drop...
Steve Jobs as God because Macs are about as close as things can get to "just working"
MS probably doesn't want to put costly BD-ROMS in the 360 just for movies, just like they didn't with HD-DVD. Their money is really in the movie download business. They'd do it if the games could use the capacity but that would have to be a whole new console. But then they think the bandwidth fairy is going to bless us with the ability to download all our games.

As if there aren't any big lobbies behind hydrogen (hello oil and gas...) The oil giants are going to need something to replace their refineries, distribution networks, and filling stations with in the coming years and hydrogen fits the bill perfectly. Assuming the home filling station is nonsense - and it is from a renewable power source standpoint - these hydrogen cars will depend on the status quo of the stuff trucked in from large manufacturing facilities.
The prospect of future of personal transport bypassing their infrastructure completely is not going over well, I presume, and their hydrogen PR is in full assault mode. I fear it's starting to work, too.
