Intel Putting 3D Scanners In Consumer Tablets Next Year, Phones To Follow

Selur copyright&co will make this 'fun' (75 comments)

This is a nice thing in the long run (once 3D printers are more widely spread, better and cheaper), but in the short run this will probably cause more trouble than it is worth.
Thinking about a younger person, like my son, who might scan some of his toys,gimmicks,... and post those scans somewhere and about some lawyer suing because he violated some laws he wasn't really aware of.
-> once 3D printers are more wide-spread the fun really starts :)

How the Outdated TI-84 Plus Still Holds a Monopoly On Classrooms

Selur Must be too old,.. (359 comments)

I conquered school (and university) without having a graphical calculator. And yes, I'm one of those who still knows how to calculate stuff in their head and work with fractions, integrals,.. on a normal piece of paper.

+ I too agree 150 $ for a school calculator is way too high, but I don't really see the point why a graphic calculator is really needed to begin with.

Quiet Cooling With a Copper Foam Heatsink

Windows 8.1 Update Released, With Improvements For Non-Touch Hardware

Selur hoping that Windows 8 is like Vista,.... (294 comments)

Windows 3.1 -> worked
Windows 98 -> crashed but worked sometimes
Windows ME -> just crashed
Windows XP -> worked, but has it's drawbacks (64bit version was better, but never really useful due to missing drivers)
Windows Vista -> too much trouble to use
Windows 7 -> useful, but not as customizable as XP
Windows 8.x -> not so useful if you don't have a touch screen, less and less accessible customizations possible
Windows 9 -> hoping that Windows 8 is like Vista and Windows 9 will be useful like Windows 7
