Study: Light-Emitting Screens Before Bedtime Disrupt Sleep

DocSavage64109 Re:At a guess . . . (178 comments)

iphones seem to get plenty dim. I also second the thought that most people turn up the brightness. My friends, and their kids, have learned to max out the brightness every time they touch my phone.

DocSavage64109 Re:Screw them (220 comments)

Reaction To the Sony Hack Is 'Beyond the Realm of Stupid'

DocSavage64109 Re:Land of the free (580 comments)

If everyone is known to have a gun, then if you want to successfully commit crime, you have to fire (and hit) first. Have fun with your gun when whoever is attacking you has already shot and killed you.

Councilmen Introduce Bills Strongly Regulating UAV Use in NYC

DocSavage64109 Re:Flying a drone into something is a right! (68 comments)

Not only that, but we have the right to mount cameras on said drones and see everything that goes on in peoples' apartments because it's their fault for leaving the blinds open. In fact, I need to sell an integrated camera drone / hot-chick database solution, or maybe just stream the feeds from my own army of privacy invading drones.

Jaguar and Land Rover Just Created Transparent Pillars For Cars

DocSavage64109 Re:Solved in 1964 (191 comments)

Though having 3cm thick a-pillars does seem to avoid the blind spot problem, I don't think those pillars could support the car's static weight, let alone the weight + momentum of the car or cars from a bad collision or roll-over.

Federal Court Nixes Weeks of Warrantless Video Surveillance

DocSavage64109 Re:So if I've got this right... (440 comments)

If the police just followed procedure and got a warrant for the camera, this would have not been a problem. Requiring the police to have oversight and get the approval of a judge for is a good thing.

Federal Court Nixes Weeks of Warrantless Video Surveillance

DocSavage64109 Re:What? (440 comments)

The police must have had a reason to put a camera on the pole. Their mistake was in not bothering to get a warrant to do so (or they tried and failed to get a warrant).

LG To Show Off New 55-Inch 8K Display at CES

DocSavage64109 Re:Why? (179 comments)

Blu-ray resolutions are not pointless. For an obvious example, compare the sharpness of subtitles between a dvd and a blu-ray some time.

Actually, I have a friend who is partially deaf and they leave the subtitles on all the time. His kids are the best readers in their grades at school by a good margin thanks to always having those subtitles up.
