Next Carsharing Advance: Electric Cars From a Vending Machine
Uhm, are they developing androids as well? If so I recommend people grab "Tubular Android Superheroes" to get tips on how to avoid being mind controlled.
The W3C Sells Out Users Without Seeming To Get Anything In Return
Indeed, DRM and copyright extensions are corporate copyright holders continuous refusal to give the public their part of the copyright agreement, i.e. no fair use and eventual public domain of the material after a short period of protection.
Next SurfaceRT To Come With Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, LTE
*Shakes the Magic Windows Eight Ball* and the answer is "always and every time".
Hackers Spawn Web Supercomputer On Way To Chess World Record
It actually could be a fair exchange of resources instead of ads, I use some of yours when visiting your site and "consuming" your work and I give some back by doing some "work" for you. If what I provide is a reasonable use of my resources, I would have no problem with it as long as it is legal.
Google Glass: What's With All the Hate?
We should demand "recording" LEDs indicating when cell phone cameras are on, and the same for Google Glass.
Or even better, have the feature only available after the user have used a vuvuzela for 5 minutes and it must be used during the recording as well. :p
Ender's Game Trailer Released
Looks to me (based on this trailer alone) that the book got hammered and bashed to fit into the current Hollywood "sci-fi" form factor, lots of shiny graphics/scenery and some fractions of elements from the book (similar to I robot).
Children trained as soldiers? The film Soldier already did that very well, and I got a feeling it is closer to the book than the Ender's Game film will ever be.
Boston Cops Go Undercover Online To Crack Down on Concerts
Slashdot have editors!? I though it was a game where you tried to get some named bots to accept submissions based upon specific keywords. :p
Can You Really Hear the Difference Between Lossless, Lossy Audio?
I know I can not hear the difference. But for me, the few times I go for lossless, it is simply to have something as close to the original as possible, as I find it worth it to have.
Google Glass Will Identify People By Clothing
Should I say calculators are useless or stupid, just because I don't need them for that use case?
Your comparison of the calculator and the Google gadget is flawed, as one is made for a specific purpose (calculator) and the other have additional benefits (which I hope work out for those in needed of them). It would be more prudent to compare the calculators additional purposes. For instance the calculator can be used as a dildo, but like the Google gadget, doing so in public will make you look like a freak.
The problem is not the gadget in itself, but the way it works and who controls the data, and how it affects everybody around the user whether they like it or not. It is an invasion of peoples lives on a massive scale.
Ask Slashdot: Software To Help Stay On Task?
TBH it sounds like a setup for the answer to be "install Windows 8".
UK Apple Shop Forced To Change Its Name
No matter how big a success the first generation of the iCider is, I am not going to queue for the next gen iCider. :p
What To Do When an Advised BIOS Upgrade Is Bad?
Wow, 1950. Dell really build thing to last in the good old days. ;P
Apple Loses Claim For False Advertising Regarding Amazon "App Store"
It can be made a whole lot simpler. If you sue, you pay for the defence as well (at a similar rate) if the defendant can not afford it.
Sony DVR Useless After Rovi Stops TV Guide OnScreen
Is this meant to be another bash SONY because they are "evil" "article"?
Before you head down that line, note that:
- Rovi (corporation) used to be called Macrovision.
- This is for a (free?) Over The Air service.
- No link to the Rovi announcement or their reasoning.
- Affects any device and service relying on Rovi and their data.
It seems to me this is just another move to get people onto cable where media companies can exert more control over content (and the people watching) and rake in more money.
Why Are We So Rude Online?
I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
CPUs Do Affect Gaming Performance, After All
What sites have claimed that? And doesn't the article come (to an extend) to the same conclusion that HardOCP have had for quite some time now?
McDonald's Denies Prof's Claim Staff Attacked Him For Wearing Digital Glasses
Except, of course, a police sign or badge.
Best Buy Cuts 650 Geek Squad Techies
So 640 wasn't enough for everybody. :P
Why Bad Jobs (or No Jobs) Happen To Good Workers
Because corporations control large parts of the news and government. They are the citizens, not ordinary people.
Mono Abandons Open Source Silverlight
it's just yet another failure on Ballmer's running list of "too little, too late" achievements.
Just a few more and he unlocks the achievement that grants a vanity pet (demonic chair) that follows him around everywhere. :p
