US To Build Nuclear Power Plants

Alcohol Fueled Re:finally (622 comments)

"If all of the electricity you used in your lifetime was nuclear, the amount of waste that would be added up would fit in a Coke can." That's from Steward Brand. I was curious about that fact after reading your post, so poked around on Google and found his TED speech here, with interactive transcript.

Breaking the Squid Barrier

Alcohol Fueled Re:Only live prey? (126 comments)

When I hear "giant squid," I think of a... giant squid. Per Wikipedia: "Giant squid can grow to a tremendous size: recent estimates put the maximum size at 13 metres (43 ft) for females and 10 metres (33 ft) for males from caudal fin to the tip of the two long tentacles (second only to the colossal squid at an estimated 14 metres (46 ft), one of the largest living organisms)."

Fujitsu's Latest Mobile Phone Splits In Two

Alcohol Fueled Re:Interesting idea, but how far are they taking i (140 comments)

"If using the keyboard half of the phone to make or receive a call it's possible to use the top half of the display to, for example, check e-mail or take a picture." It seems like if you can check email while making a call, texting while on a call shouldn't be that much different.

Fujitsu's Latest Mobile Phone Splits In Two

Alcohol Fueled Projector? (140 comments)

From TFA: "Fujitsu also plans to offer an optional projector unit that can be clipped onto the bottom of the phone in place of the keyboard to project images on a nearby flat surface." Really? Doesn't this seem a bit much for a phone? Or is there a demand I don't know about to have a projector on your phone? I guess it *could* be useful for someone making a presentation of some sort, but I'd think a computer or an actual projector would be better..

Future Blu-ray Movies To Come With Playable Game Demos

Alcohol Fueled Re:alternatively... (170 comments)

Or at least a part of Netflix on PS3 sometime in the future. I don't think it'd be that hard to add Blu-ray quality movies to the online queue. The only issue that might stop it from happening would be the bandwidth needed to transfer a Blu-ray quality movie.

Top 10 Internet Moments of the Decade

Alcohol Fueled Alcohol Fueled writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Alcohol Fueled (603402) writes "From Napster to Wikipedia, to Google and Craigslist, the Internet has had its share of big moments. CNN has a chronological list of them, courtesy of the Webby Awards. The events are not listed by any sense of importance because David-Michel Davies, the executive director of the Webby Awards, says "that depends on who you are and what you're interested in." What are some other Internet moments of the decade that you'd consider important, that perhaps didn't make their list?"
