2D To 3D Object Manipulation Software Lends Depth to Photographs

HyperQuantum Not free as in freedom (76 comments)

The software appears to be proprietary, not free as in 'free software'. It is available for zero cost, but usage is restricted:

ACADEMIC OR NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION NONCOMMERCIAL RESEARCH USE ONLY

Match.com, Mensa Create Dating Site For Geniuses

HyperQuantum Re:But people forget what MENSA concluded (561 comments)

So at the end of the day "success" is a combination of multiple factors and IQ alone is non-determinant. So who cares about IQ anyway?

Who cares about "success"? Happiness is much more important. It's the simple things in life that matter. The best things in life are free. You don't need a high IQ to be happy.

Autonomous Car Ethics: If a Crash Is Unavoidable, What Does It Hit?

HyperQuantum Re:Screw other people (800 comments)

Screw other people

And this is what is wrong with the world.

Let's turn the situation around: suppose you and your children are walking on the street. Will you still prefer the autonomous car to protect it's single driver at all costs and kill you and your children instead? And then imagine how many autonomous cars will be on the road in the future, all with that same logic built-in...

Microsoft Launches Office For iPad: Includes Word, Excel, and PowerPoint

HyperQuantum Implementation (184 comments)

I wonder if they wrote it more or less from scratch, or if they managed to reuse a lot of code from some other platform (e.g. Office for Mac OS X)?

Stop Trying To 'Innovate' Keyboards, You're Just Making Them Worse

HyperQuantum Re:Get off my lawn? (459 comments)

Yeah. And if they don't want to remove it, they should put it back on the bottom where ctrl is now. Ctrl is used way more often.

Ford Will Demo Solar-Charged Car At CES

HyperQuantum Re:Dear Ford.... (179 comments)

It's not completely stupid. Solar panels on the roof are like a range extender. And battery almost empty during a ride, and the next charging station not close by? Stop at a restaurant, eat something while the battery recharges a bit, and you are good to go.

The carport with lens is stupid, though.

Geeks For Monarchy: The Rise of the Neoreactionaries

HyperQuantum Re:hrm (730 comments)

It's a simple deal: She gets to keep her vast country-ruling powers, on condition she never uses them.

Power that can never be used is only imaginary power. It's like a car salesman saying "this expensive sports car now belongs to you, but you are not allowed to touch it or get inside it, and it will always remain here".

The Neuroscientist Who Discovered He Was a Psychopath

HyperQuantum No excuse anymore? (241 comments)

Maybe this guy proves that despite your genes you still have a choice. No excuse like "I'm sorry your honor, I couldn't help killing him, it's because of my bad genes".

Zuckerberg To Teach 10 Million Kids 0-Based Counting

HyperQuantum Re:Counting From Zero Actually Makes more Sense (295 comments)

Actually, people count from zero without realizing it, in my opinion. See how they count:

1, 2, 3, 4, ...

Each number actually represents a change of state. The initial state is zero. When people say "1", it means they change state from zero to one. So they actually count from zero.

A New Way To Fund Open Source Software Projects, Bug Fixes and Feature Requests

HyperQuantum Re:Javascript needed (52 comments)

You could put out a bounty for making the web site viewable without JavaScript. :-)

No he can't. He doesn't have JavaScript enabled.

And obviously, he cannot enable it for that single website because that would be a crime against humanity.
