Apparently Wired has a loose screw. The title isn't remotely related to the article and isn't remotely accurate. I really expected better from Wired.

I disagree. The story was about the problem YouTube had with the number of viewers of that video. It was a problem in the same way that Y2K was a problem.

I'll just quote one of the comments on the story:

And by "we did the math" you mean "we pointed out a technical grammatical error in the pouplarly buzzed headline, then spun it around for our own 'controversial' headline, to give a false sense of 'truth' to our article in order to bait more clicks."

And then you proceeded to recite the same figures as every other article that had already gotten to this bit of news, in an effort to drag people in for more.

And you succeeded. Well done. You baited the fish. And most of us stuck around to complain about how we got baited to boot. Double whammy.

Now please don't ever do it again.

This is really nifty:

It's a new kind of weed control that is non-toxic. For anyone that follows any of the news on herbicides, this is a pretty big deal.

SpoilerI wonder how old she is.
