My money is on a near removal of mouse and keypress based control in favor of voice control. Just tell Cortana what you want to do.

NASA Moon Launch May Be Delayed After 2020

Slashdot Junky Good! (261 comments)

Frankly, we shouldn't be blowing money on trips to the moon, Mars, or anywhere else not within Ionosphere. All that funding should be directed to more earthly endeavors. The exception is the research that leads technology and understanding that allows to put satellites up there. NASA's funding would be better spent on advancing green-themed initiatives so that we can maybe remain on this planet longer.

What Has Fox Got Against Its Own Sci-Fi Shows?

I very much have a social calendar and don't have to clear it to watch anything, because I have a DVR. Oh, I am at least able to post here. Yes, I know you were joking.

SanDisk, Music Publishers Push DRM-free SlotMusic Format

Slashdot Junky The CD is not a broken method of distribution (368 comments)

Dear music industry and companies trying to fix something that's not in need,

The CD is NOT a broken method of distribution. While physical distribution has had and will continue having to give way to online sales through services such as iTunes, replacing CDs with something that still requires a person to get off their ass and venture in to the brick-n-mortor world isn't going to increase sales in this space.

I only buy CDs and then immediately rip them to MP3s for listening at home and via my iPod. I buy CDs for a couple of reasons. The main reason is that I always have it in the closet for ripping again in the format of my choice in the event I need to do so. I also like getting something I can touch when I fork money over for something that's not purely a service.

Distributing anything on flash memory in place of much cheaper and environmentally friendly optical discs is irresponsible. Plus, it makes no sense financially in my mind for a company to elect the particular method covered by this article.

Slashdot Junky (265039) writes "Hey everyone,

Like so many of you, I have an iPod Video(60GB) in a case and want to use Apple's universal dock. The problem with this is that with the case on, I am not able to do so. I'm also not willing to remove it from the case to dock it.

I bought the dock thinking that there would be enough clearance without the model-specific insert in place and can't return it. I need to find an extender/riser/adapter for the dock connector that would allow me to dock my iPod without removing the case. I have scoured the net and have only found discussions about this very thing. The only thing close I've found are dock connector to breakout PCBs for hobby dev work seemingly related to the iPodLinux project.

Does such a thing exist? How about as a removable component of 3rd party dock or accessory that could possible be obtained as a replaceable part from the manufacturer? Although I very much like my Speck ToughSkin, I'd also consider buying a new case if I could find an acceptable one that was compatible with the universal dock.
