True, but it is troubling there wasn't a more severe punishment. Like the train conductor that was texting and caused the pile up that killed dozens of people about a week or so ago, this could easily have been very bad.

And now for some more news. . .

I am surprised that Micor$oft would sue DHL. I assume that the Xboxes would be insured. O_o

36 WOW accounts? Someone needs a life.

That's an insane PC case mod. :shock:

Wow, if airlines converted to GPS, they wouldn't have so much financial troubles...

Unfortunately we aren't likely to see much in price drops :roll:

What's funny about the WoW account is he's hardly alone, there are even bigger setups for couples who are both heavily into WoW.

And yeah, that case mod is impressive. :wink:

Yup, unfortunately there are more than the obvious reasons why we're in a recession now. Just way too many crooks out there! Course you wouldn't believe what people leave behind in their seats, the people who clean the planes after every trip find quite a bit that they get to keep.

Yup, who would have thunk it? :mrgreen:

Why would someone put an RFID implant into their hand? O_o

In his own words...

I implanted a RFID chip in my hand. I injected the chip myself from supplies bought on the internet. This tag is readable from up to 2 inches from my hand.

I am currently using it to open my handgun safe for instant access. I can have a gun in hand in one second in blackness without fumbling with buttons or codes.

If you are convinced that this is the "Mark of the Beast", then from one Christian to another I hope you read the Book of Revelation and apply more understanding to it that what you hear from those who only offer fear.

Some background info... There are actually people insisting that RFID tags are the sign of the beast/devil, Amish farmers for example will refuse to farm if the government insists on tagging cattle because they view it as the sign of the beast.

Conversely, police are considering RFID implants to ensure service weapons are only usable by their programmed owner!

Speaking of RFID. . .

I wonder how tall the mountains are under all that ice in Antarctica...

I'm glad I don't live in Australia. What nonsense. :x

Energy Star consoles, that would be cool. :)

I say "LOL" at promoting drunken video game driving! Perfect practice for real life! :shock:
