The drone pilot claims that his drone over 200 feet in the air when it was shot down by a neighbor.
How much of your airspace do you actually own? Federal law remains unclear.

At the end of the video the drone was -49 ft. Also I find it hard to believe that #8 bird shot would even reach that height with sufficient energy and grouping to down anything.

Expert electrical analysis (essentially): those $340 audiophile cables are just meh, blah
Listeners couldn't distinguish them from spec-failing, garbage-quality cables.

I listen to music one of two ways:

1: The earbuds that came with my phone

2: My car's stock stereo

I've come to accept that I may not be an audiophile.

"I could use my 'masscan' tool to blanket the Internet with those packets and crash all publicly facing BIND9 DNS servers in about an hour."
Latest critical bug in widely used DNS server underscores its fragility.

"The cables failed the A/B/X test. And, for what it’s worth, with the sample size given, the fail rate was in fact worse than it would have been through simple guessing."
But pre-set expectations and testing questions make us wonder about our results.

I actually bought a $250 directional electrical replacement wire for my toaster, and I can see a plain as day difference in toast color and the taste is much better than with the original non directional electrical wire.

One month of taking net neutrality complaints, 2,500 complaints received.
AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon frequent subjects of early complaints to FCC.

Though the problems are not as important in Canada, I hope that some Internet providers here will get the wakeup call too. No matter which country you're in, data caps are incompatible with how we use (legally) Internet nowadays. It's simply ludicrous.

And also the fact that you have to pay for TV, phone and mobile if you want to have competitive prices. But what if you don't need TV and phone? These are technologies from the 20th century, I really don't need them anymore.

(I pay 65$CA/m for a 30Mbit/s Internet connexion with a 250GB data cap)

"Google tax" = traffic death for Spanish pubs
Traffic to small publishers dropped 14, and some local news apps shut down.

Today in "duh," Recommendation No. 2 from the latest 'how to fix biomedical research' paper: "Federal government should increase overall research funding."
Recommendations to solve research problems lack real-world potency.

"Run up an incline and jump off a side wall. Land on a mine. Die.

Run up an incline and jump off a side wall. Land on a small trampoline. Whip around a curved ceiling and hug the wall to fall into a small angled safe zone. Jump for some gold gems rather than running straight to the exit and run into a mine. Die.

Pure, punishing platformer praises people who push to persevere.

Well, the Xbox One numbers aren't good per se...
And Xbox One is bringing in much less revenue for at least one major publisher.

I'm really surprised about how the PS4 is trouncing XB1, while the Xbox360 did so much better than the PS3.   Is it all due to the $100 premium for XB1 with Kinect?
