Death Wish Meets GPS: iPhone Theft Victims Confronting Perps
Wouldn't be awesome if you could activate an ink dye that exploded all over the person who stole your phone?
Recovering a stolen phone is pretty much hopeless, but at least you would have the satisfaction that the perp looked like a smurf.
Of course the downside, hackers would think it would be funny as hell to set off the dye on people they didn't like.
The Koch Brothers Attack On Solar Energy
The problem with AZ is that the power company was paying 4 times the going rate to buy power from solar panel users.

NYC Considers Google Glass For Restaurant Inspections
Instead of spending $1500, why don't they buy a decent camera with a flash for 1/10 of the cost.

Google Tries To Defuse Glass "Myths"
I have a Glass, it is pretty useless actually. It can take pictures but you either need to wink or touch the Glass to do it.
The video is pretty much worthless, it takes a few seconds worth of video and if you want to continue you have to tap the Glass.
You can see where someone points a camera, you can see where the Glass is pointed as well.
Trust me, the Glass is less useful that a tablet that is 1/10th the cost.
