Slashdot - at times interesting, but the lack of insight in some of the 
article postings, and especially in the comments in amazing. The signal 
to noise is so low its not worth reading the comments much, if at all.

That said, I do read it every day as there may be a good article or 2 to 
follow. Even if the "insightful" comment isn't up to much, often the 
original article or company mentioned is interesting (The AlphaGrip was 
good, plus an email to them got a quick and informative reply from one 
of the creators).
