Slashdot Asks: Do You Want a Smart Watch?

Sri Ramkrishna Re:@CauseBy - Re:Yes (381 comments)

Actually, hitting a button on your headset is easier. Your wrist is constantly in motion when you're running. Your head is relatively stationary so it is an easier target. While running you naturally swing your arms as a form of balance, to stop and try to use one hand to touch the other hand while maintaining a steady pace is awkward.

This is so true. My wife, fixed our front loading washer looking at youtube video. You can even do tradesman craft if you know what you are doing.

Teaching College Is No Longer a Middle Class Job

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Administrators (538 comments)

Not really. These days, at least for big corps, they just scan that stuff in and then suck it into a database.

Teaching College Is No Longer a Middle Class Job

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Administrators (538 comments)

you're looking at over 30 years of Republican talking points starting from Reagan that has gotten into this state. Everything was about lowering taxes, and even though Reagan himself wasn't that crazy, everyone who followed him afterwards turned into something nuts. Now, some of this is of course resources and what not, but honestly, we need to change this thinking.

Teaching College Is No Longer a Middle Class Job

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Administrators (538 comments)

Yeah, that's true. But then nobody goes to college then you know what happens? They bring in immigrants who have the degrees. So, that is not going to work. You need to find a way to reduce the cost of middle management. That's where the real cost savings are. Not in workers.

Too bad someone downvoted you. That's most unfortunate. A reasonable comment to boot.

Chelsea Clinton At NCWIT: More PE, Less Zuckerberg

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Back at you. (255 comments)

History is extremely relevant. If you don't chronicle your past, and learn from it, you're doomed to repeat it. You can learn a lot from how people used to do things.

Should We Eat Invasive Species?

Sri Ramkrishna Mm.. blackberries (290 comments)

They are used as a natural border since it is a thorny viney mess. But during late July and August you can pluck it for blackberries. They are very delicious and can be used in a number of yummy things. But they are hard to kill and will take over if you don't stop it early. Some places you have to burn it to get rid of it because it keeps coming back.

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Better service though... (286 comments)

They are raising prices. Surprised they've kept it up this long. Best way to stop it is to not consume it. Let them work harder. Now if we can get those sports fans to stop being such suckers..

Cable TV Prices Rising At Four Times the Inflation Rate

Sri Ramkrishna Re:In the future... (286 comments)

Plus, you're still paying for college. Most of youngsters are saddled with debt, they don't have money. So they pick the services they most critically need and that is usually a cell phone and internet. Everything is possible with just those two.
