New Class of "Hypervelocity Stars" Discovered Escaping the Galaxy

KliX Re:This makes me think more about the word "Speed" (150 comments)

'Relative' is the key. There is no fixed background to say 'This is going absolutely this fast', any observation point in any kind of motion is as viable as any other. It just falls out of a little bit of simple vector maths - so no, your question is not answerable, as it's malformed.

Is the World Ready For Facial Recognition On Google Glass?

KliX Glass users! (469 comments)

I hope you're ready to get the shit kicked out of you, because that's inevitably what's going to happen. I can't really see how it isn't going to happen.

I suspect it'll happen so frequently, that the police in any state won't even bother to charge anyone doing so with a crime after a short while.

Good luck!

John Carmack: Kudos To Valve, But Linux Is Still Not a Viable Gaming Market

KliX Re:Before someone is accepted, it's not accepted, (635 comments)

No, the reason is that it is horrible and expensive to code for. Vastly too expensive for the returns unless it's turned into a closed platform, a la the App Store.
