Researchers Scrambling To Build Ebola-Fighting Robots

DaveM753 Modern Monty Python (87 comments)

I can just see groups of robots slowly rolling down the cobblestone streets announcing, in typical monotoned robot-voice fashion, "BRING...OUT...YOUR...DEAD..."

Someday, children will sing songs about it. In the meantime, please get off my plane. TY.

Favorite clickbait hook?

DaveM753 Re:Am I doing something right? (238 comments)

A good example of clickbait is a headline that intentionally withholds an important detail of what the article is about, while intentionally making you think it will apply to you.
An extreme example would be "Mass Murderers are Doing THIS to Hurt People Like You".

My favorite website for clickbait headlines is CNN.com. Here are some headlines I grabbed from them just now:

"Run this play, get a touchdown"

"He found this AFTER he finished his coffee"

"I'd have to do WHAT to eat that?"

"Stunned resident finds jellyfish in ..."

Microsoft Considered Renaming Internet Explorer To Escape Its Reputation

DaveM753 A rose by any other name... (426 comments)

If it walks like MSIE,
talks like MSIE,
crashes head-first into a BSOD from malware-laden doom like MSIE,
...it's a duck.

NFL Players To Use Tablet Computers During Games

DaveM753 One more reason to not watch NFL (107 comments)

Could this be the year for Surface on the tablet??

This is so putrid. During every game this year, viewers are going to see a few scripted moments where a bunch of players/coaches will be standing around with their tablets and the TV commentators will discuss how marvelous/innovative the Surface tablets are. But during the rest of the game, watch closely: along the sidelines you will very rarely see anyone using their tablets

At some point during the season, a referee will make a controversial ruling after reviewing a replay using a Surface tablet (again, scripted moment).

But that's okay. I'll be watching not-the-NFL.

Hulu's not Plus, they're just big-boned...

Seriously, same opinion here: I won't pay to watch commercials.

Trey and Matt: have fun with the money.
Hulu: screw you guys, I am going home...(or rather, to Netflix)

Other Tech the Senate Would Have Banned

DaveM753 Nothing else going on, apparently (264 comments)

We have 2 wars, 10-20% unemployment, poverty, bad health care system, etc. But let's deal with copyright infringement for the wealthy. Everything else can be fixed later.
