Maybe With Help From Google and Adobe, Microsoft Can Kill Windows XP

DocZayus Déja vu? (405 comments)

This seems to be the same chatter we had when Win95 came out, then WinNT, Win98, Win2000, WinXP, Vista, etc... (yes I left a few out, but who needs to remember millenium?) Nothing new here, MS is still going to be around even with the shift. Not everyone likes working on a MAC. I for one hate it even though I have to use it at work. And most people still think Linux is command-line only. Of course when you show them what it really is nowadays, they go oooh-aaah, but still want to stick to something they know.

DocZayus Control? (148 comments)

Computer Programmers Only the 5th Most Sleep Deprived Profession

DocZayus Military? (204 comments)

I don't understand how the military aren't in that list. It is not unusual for a military member to go 24 hours without sleep when on a mission.

Carmakers Prepare For Augmented Reality Driving

DocZayus Efforts in the right field? (177 comments)

Adding technology to cars is OK, but shouldn't they be focusing on researching alternate fuel engines? Fuel will begin to be scarce in the upcoming years, with fuel prices rising exponentially in the process. The environment would also be thankful.

Studying the Impact of Lost Shipping Containers

DocZayus Re:Can't they tie them down? (236 comments)

But if they floated, wouldn't it be easier to find and recover instead of letting whatever's in it to rot and pollute the oceans?

Senior Citizens Lining Up to Tackle Fukushima

DocZayus but... (242 comments)

How can they clean the place up AND move around with their walkers? And really, how do they plan on moving all that heavy stuff out there? At 70+, their muscle mass is pretty much gone... Are they hoping for radioactive mutations that will make them strong again?
