MINI-ITX and the Future of PC Case Design?

Logibeara Re:That's cute and everything.... (164 comments)

I expected crazy case designs when reading the summary, i.e. Non box shapes. However, I was very disappointed to see that cases have been more or less similar for the last 5 years.

When do I get to see boards mounted inside of hollowed out encyclopedias?

What's the Best Way To Get Web Content To My TV?

Logibeara this may not be you (304 comments)

but I'm sure a lot of Slashdot readers have at least one old desktop around. All that is really required is a TV with a VGA input, and most new ones have an HDMI cable input as well. If you're lucky that old desktop already has an HDMI cable output on its video card, otherwise go with VGA or buy a cheap HDMI enabled video card. Having a separate media box is very convenient because you never have to disconnect it

As for the couch sitting importance go for a decent Bluetooth mouse and keyboard.
If you get a cheapo, your experience will consist of writhing around the couch trying to get signal before you give up and find a surface closer to the reciever.

IT Snake Oil — Six Tech Cure-Alls That Went Bunk

Logibeara Re:It's always the hype problem. (483 comments)

But, if you're looking for HAL, you have another 2001 years to wait. Nobody seriously is working toward that, except as a dream goal. Everybody wants a better prediction model for the stock market first.

Computational Perception and Developmental Robotics are a strong undertone in computer engineering courses at ISU. I don't know about other schools, but a HAL like computer is much less than a "dream goal". I can say without a doubt that it something similar will be engineered in much less than 2001 years. Technological growth is speeding up nearly exponentially(steam engine, combustion engine, flight, electricity, moonwalk) I'm sure everyone has heard the spiel. Asst Professor at ISU, Alex Stoytchev's dissertation focuses specifically on building a system of robotic learning, commonly called "Developmental Robotics". While his robot only had the ability to categorize objects based on resonance sound and mass, it still shows that fundamental building blocks for a one day "HAL" are already in existence.

The Mindset of the Incoming College Freshmen

Logibeara A different setting for the same plot (383 comments)

Even though every single one of those statements are true, there are still many variations of personality and character. It's just a different setting for the same plot. Much less than a mindset, more like meaningless ramble of facts.

Is Blizzard going to far?

Logibeara Logibeara writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Logibeara (1620627) writes "Blizzard is releasing Starcraft II beta keys via their Facebook: page. While enraging many loyal fans, they are also expertly hyping up their upcoming release Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty, to likely achieve record sales. The most recent beta key post was posted with one letter replaced by a "*" forcing fans to guess letters and numbers until one of them got it. Within minutes of the post, the page moderator then deleted the thread altogether, replacing it with an announcement for the collectors edition release:"
