Slashdot reader JoeyRox shares a disturbing story about a Boeing 737 NG flight carrying 128 passengers that crashed in 2009, killings its three pilots, another crew member and five passengers. But "the Dutch investigators focused blame on the pilots for failing to react properly when an automated system malfunctioned and caused the plane to plummet into a field," the New York Times reported this week.

At the same time, there are critical drawbacks that occasionally prevent technology from working in our favor. When you lose your Internet connection, you’re practically helpless. When you do research, it’s easy to get d...

The other night, my main Kindle froze. I could see my home page, but if I moved from one title to another the only option I had was to delete books – there was no way to open one. After several restarts, I decided to plug my Kindle into my computer to try Kubrick and to move my documents folder to another Kindle, but...
