Are We Socially Ready For Wearable Computing?

Dare Re:Google Glass should be outlawed. (214 comments)

I for one have no problem with you augmenting your eyes, ears and memory. I do have a bit of a problem with Google sharing your augmentations.

Honestly, I would have no problem with a wearable, even always-on camera. It's the Google's panopticon bit I have reservations with.

Play Tetris To Fix Your Lazy Eye

Dare Re:Any Oculus Rift developers in the house? (88 comments)

I suffer from this, and I'm thinking maybe I'm just going to load up Tetris on a two-display mirrored setup, make something out of cardboard so that each eye can only see one of the displays, then use paper to cover relevant part of each screen. Might work.

Apple Declutters, Speeds Up iTunes With Major Upgrade

Dare Re:CNET overviews the removed features (295 comments)

"5. Multiple windows"

Tried this on my test machine, and it appears to be true. What The Hell. This completely wrecks my workflow for creating playlists (which was to have library open in one window, playlist in another, and to drag files from the library into the right place on the playlist).

For fnord's sake. It seems that these days every update from Apple ends up just frustrating me. Not installing this one either, just like Safari 6 (no RSS, again WTF?)

Dealing With the Eventual Collapse of Social Networks

Dare Still waiting for Social Networking Protocol (370 comments)

The minute social networks start behaving like email (that is, work with protocols that communicate but anyone can actually run a server, preferably one of many available flavors) I'll get into them. Not before. Diaspora seems to be going that way, but I haven't yet gotten around to setting up a pod of my own.

Study Finds That "Extreme Gamers" Play 48 Hours a Week

Dare Re:Feh to your pitiful hardcore Definition (272 comments)

The only time I stop playing my game is when not doing so would be to the permanent detriment to my gaming environment.

All in all this means I play my game about 18 hours a day. Thats right, 18 goddamn hours. I sleep for the other 6.

So did your character post this or did you do it while sleeping?

Shouldn't that be "China Blocks iTunes Store"? What is this, Internet News by Joe Sixpack?
