In a Feb. 7 “Future Tense” blog post, Torie Bosch misspelled the first name of Technology Review contributor Simson Garfinkel.

In a Feb. 7 "Jurisprudence," Dahlia Lithwick originally and mistakenly referred to Lawrence v. Texas as having been decided 11 years after Romer v. Evans. Lawrence was decided 7 years after, in 2003.

In a Feb. 7 post on “The Slatest,” Abby Ohlheiser mistakenly reported that Russia's only naval base is in the city of Tartus. That Syrian city is home to Russia's only Mediterranean naval base.

In the Feb. 6 “Ad Report Card,” Seth Stevenson misidentified the Acura NSX as the MSK.

In the Feb. 3 “Moneybox,” Will Oremus stated that the Daily Mail Online is "by most reckonings, wildly profitable." While exact figures aren't available, reports indicate that revenues are growing fast but have yet to surpass expenses, due to the cost of the website's recent editorial expansion in the United States.

In a Feb. 3 “Television,” Troy Patterson misidentified the actor who plays the director in Smash as Derek Wills. The character's name is Derek Wills; the actor's name is Jack Davenport.
