Protesters Block Apple and Google Buses In California

NivenHuH Re: Hmm. (653 comments)

San Francisco also has housing programs like these for folks who make less than a certain amount (i think $70k?) and more than a certain amount (i think $30k)? They also have other housing options for those who make $30k, which includes career development & placement solutions.

NivenHuH Re:CS Degrees @ UCSF = NO JOBS FOR BS! (93 comments)

UCSF doesn't even teach computer science; UCSF is a medical school.

The article is about CCSF (a community college).

Highly Efficient Oxygen Catalyst Found

NivenHuH A joke. (156 comments)

Two hydrogens and one oxygen walk into a bar. The three get together and say, let's get wet!

Steve Jobs Dead At 56

NivenHuH RIP Steve (1613 comments)

What a bummer... Steve was one of the few people who inspired me to be as crazy as I have been over the years.
It's weird to have chills after hearing the news. As an ex-Apple employee, I hope that the engineering culture he created continues to live on.

NivenHuH My attempt at geek humor... (1088 comments)

Maybe they measured the distance between two points using kM instead of KiM which leaves them off by about 24 meters per kM...

Alaska Airlines Jettisons Paper Manuals For iPads

NivenHuH Electronics do interfere (220 comments)

EMI from electronic devices do affect navigational systems. If you want a demo of this in your house, put your iPad next to a magnetic compass and watch it swing.

In the little Cessna that I fly, my portable GPS will cause the compass to be off by as much as 3-4 degrees.

I know this is much different than commercial jetliners -- I don't claim to know how commercial jet navigational systems are built. I do know that most of the FAA regulations (such as turning off portable electronic devices) are typically created from incidents that have happened in the past.

TSA Limits Lithium Batteries on Airplanes

NivenHuH Maybe we need bullet trains (595 comments)

If the DOT is so afraid of what people can do on airplanes, maybe we should spend money on building out a high-speed rail infrastructure? I'm on vacation in Tokyo right now... it's painful to compare their transit system to ours (I live in SF). A rail infrastructure would bring higher security and would reduce our dependency on oil. .a
