Chemists Build First "Buckyball" Made of Boron

BradyB Re:Boron? (39 comments)

The first time I read the headline I thought it said Chemists Build First "Buckyball" Made of Bacon .

Boron's OK, I suppose, but bacon would have been way wicked cooler.

Same here, I was just about to post that. Too funny.

BradyB Re:What drugs and what protections from failure? (439 comments)

It will probably be in single pill form - i.e. you can't take half of it unless you are seriously trying to screw yourself or the system.

There are commercials on the radio, and they say it could be upwards of 100 pills. I know it's a political add, but there might and I say MIGHT be some truth to it being more than 1 pill.

Is Siri Smarter Than Google?

BradyB Yeah but? (366 comments)

Didn't even Wozniak say that Siri isn't as good as the advertisements?

Steve quoted on various news sites:

I have a lower success rate with Siri than I do with the voice built into the Android, and that bothers me. I’ll be saying, over and over again in my car, ‘Call the Lark Creek Steak House,’ and I can’t get it done. Then I pick up my Android, say the same thing, and it’s done. [...] On the 4S I can only do that when Siri can connect over the Internet. But many times it can’t connect. I’ve never had Android come back and say, ‘I can’t connect over the Internet. [...] Plus I get navigation. Android is way ahead on that.
