Apple Orders Memory Game Developers To Stop Using 'Memory' In Names

The Car Ravensburger was the first (409 comments)

If I may.. from http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/7688/memory :

First published in today's form by Ravensburger in February 1959.. There are hundreds of different Memory games - starting with 24 cards for the youngest.. The most famous publisher is Ravensburger - they have the rights for the brand name Memory - and they have really nice ones.

I still feel that banning the use of "memory" in a keyword is ridiculous.

AT&T To Acquire T-Mobile From Deutsche Telekom

The Car On the up-side.. (748 comments)

You'll soon be able to use your phone to call your friend to complain about the T-Mobile switch while surfing on Slashdot to complain, all at the same time. Because, only AT&T's network gives you the power to call and surf at the same time.

Book Review: Learning ExtJS 3.2

The Car Re:At the risk of writing flamebait... (46 comments)

I agree to an extent. I ended up ditching ExtJS and rolling my own editable grid, server communication, popups, etc. Of course, I had very specific "low level" (if one can even say that for JavaScript) requirements for functionality and render optimization. ExtJS is great for getting a UI up and running quickly.

Getting Computers To Recognize Facial Expressions

The Car 3d cameras should make it easy (56 comments)

Reminds me of a facial expression recognition project I worked on about five years back using plain old webcams and Neven Vision software. Under decent lighting conditions we were able to detect a variety of expressions.

Apple in Talks to Improve Sound Quality of Music Downloads

The Car Re:In other words (450 comments)

I used to think there was no difference between Monster and those other cables. I listened at a friends house and couldn't tell the difference - AT FIRST. Then he showed me the gold ends of the Monster Cables, explaining how they maximize and up-convert the signal. After plugging the glistening gold connectors back in, I could immediately tell the difference. Sometimes you have to listen with your eyes, not just your ears. :)

The Car Re:Sigh. (140 comments)

Requesting delete because that VB.NET tool doesn't deserve the bandwidth it will cost.

In their defense, the core logic is written in C#.
