Seems like golf would be a much more appropriate application of this. Golfers are always analyzing and trying to improve their swing.

Amazon Forbids Crossing State Lines With Rented Textbooks

JestersGrind Enforcement? (125 comments)

Explain to me how exactly they would enforce this policy? They have no idea where the book goes unless it's RFID tagged or something. You could take the book around the world and they would be none the wiser. Just make sure you return it on time and all is good.

Android 4.3 Based CyanogenMod 10.2 Nightlies Arrive

JestersGrind Re:nice (82 comments)

I had a similar experience with Verizon. Their bloatware essentially crippled the device. Even with a larger battery, I was lucky to get a half day out of it. I installed a minimalist custom mod and now battery life is 3-5 days, depending on use obviously.

Fearful of Reader Reaction, Facebook Delays Video Ads

JestersGrind Facebook is already using video ads. (120 comments)

Facebook is already using video ads in certain instances. I know, in some Facebook games, you can watch a video ad to receive extra lives or such. The obvious difference is that there is a trade. The user is receiving something in exchange for, at least, letting the video play. Doesn't stop them for switching tabs until the ad is over.

Interviews: Ask Derek Khanna About Government Regulations and Technology

JestersGrind How to change things? (72 comments)

This question is a little broader than just copyright reform, but I'll ask it anyway. Do you have ideas, short of a revolution, on how do the American people can fix the system when the people capable of making change possible are corrupted by corporate lobbyists against any changes? Voting them out isn't even an option because another of the same ilk will just replace the ousted politician.

New Sony Patent Blocks Second-hand Games

JestersGrind Easy solution (344 comments)

Do not buy anything with Sony's name on it. Cast your vote with your spending dollars. If enough people oppose this, it will hit Sony where it hurts. Of course if most people don't care, Sony will probably get away with it and set a new low for the industry.

World wide web needs bill of rights according to Sir Tim Berners-Lee

JestersGrind JestersGrind writes  |  about 8 months ago

JestersGrind (2549938) writes "In BBC News:
"The inventor of the world wide web has marked the 25th anniversary of his creation by calling for a 'Magna Carta' bill of rights to protect its users."

"It's time for us to make a big communal decision," he said. "In front of us are two roads — which way are we going to go?

"Are we going to continue on the road and just allow the governments to do more and more and more control — more and more surveillance?

"Or are we going to set up a bunch of values? Are we going to set up something like a Magna Carta for the world wide web and say, actually, now it's so important, so much part of our lives, that it becomes on a level with human rights?""
