How the Rollout of 5G Will Change Everything
Naw. Blu-ray movies are only a subset of HD movies. 720p HD movies are easily available for around 1 GB in file size. 1080p, under 3 GB is possible. So 33 HD movies of 3 GB each is attainable at 100 GB/s. Also, most Blu-ray movies don't actually use up 25 GB.

NASA Asks Boeing, SpaceX To Stop Work On Next-Gen Space Taxi
Nope. You forget that in 2046 or so, the moon will hatch, causing everyone to look to the starts again and humans will explore the edges of the universe till the end of time...

Scientists Solve the Mystery of Why Zebras Have Stripes
So why doesn't this theory apply to Holstein cows? Just because of the stripes vs splotches of black and white?

'CandySwipe' Crushed: When Game Development Turns Nasty
Once you get past the first 50 or so levels, there seem to be no more cut scenes. Shrug.
NPR Labs is Working on Emergency Alerts for the Deaf (Video)
I don't know anyone who even has one of these emergency radios. Being HOH myself, I'd never get one, rarely ever even try to listen to standard FM/AM radio broadcasts, and would never try to listen to an emergency broadcast. Be prepared for weather. Know what is expected before the normal comm channels go down. If something is unexpected, most people aren't going to find out via emergency radios, but by word of mouth.

Russia Backs Sending Top Students Abroad With a Catch
Most Universities likely charge higher for international students, so it should actually drive tuition down. International students actually make universities money, local ones... eh, not so much.

Virtuix Omni is a Step Toward True Virtual Reality Gaming (Video)
Been reading up on these ODT. Sounds cool. While I understand the benefit of adding an Oculus Rift etc., why is that considered a requirement?
I'd rather play a FPS using this in front of several screens going nearly 360 degrees, so that I can do true aiming with a gun controller. Shouldn't the HMD be optional?
Better yet, come up with an included holo-display that moves with the player.
Scientist Seeks Investment For "Alcohol Substitute"
I don't drink Alcohol for the effect/buzz etc. I drink it for the taste. I love a cold beer, or nice rum n coke, a scotch on the rocks, or a glass of pinot noir, all depending on the situation. The buzz can be nice, but that's more what the teenagers drink for, IMO.

SSHDs Debut On the Desktop With Mixed Results
Try reading again. 8 GB of Flash. It's not the same as a 65MB cache on a standard drive, it's more like two drives bundled into one package with the most used files 'cached' on the 8 GB of Flash. I'm not clear yet on if the files are actually cached (meaning there is another copy on the 2 TB HDD part), or if they live normally in the 8 GB Flash part.
Half-Life 3 Trademark Filed In Europe
I was a kid when HL1 came out. In Uni during HL2. Done by the time Ep2 came out. Now married with a kid due in a few weeks. Less of an interest in gaming as well. Main difference is I've had a job since I was 14 in some form or another other than some short breaks in between jobs.
My point? I'll buy HL3 within a week of it coming out. HL2 was just too good to pass up HL3. It may just take me a lot longer to get through the game, which just means to me that it's better value to me personallly for my money.
