Einstein's Lost Model of the Universe Discovered 'Hiding In Plain Sight'

earls A Natural Consequence (118 comments)

"a natural consequence of his general theory of relativity"

Is this to say the general theory of relativity produces a Big Bang? As in, because GR is true, BB is? What's the short explanation for that?

ChipSiP Smart Glass Specs Better Than Google Glass?

earls Yes Sir. (129 comments)

Nailed it. What good are twenty million sensors when you don't have a proper UI to control them? And that's just proper software to control the equipment - what about the rest of the ecosystem?

Coming Soon: Prescription Lenses For Google Glass

earls False, it currently responds to any voice... (195 comments)

If I take off Glass and give it to someone else - they can instantly use their own voice to issue commands without any calibration. If I or other people shout out commands while a random person is wearing them, it will respond.

The chink in his example is that the target device would have to be a contact in Glass already - and at this current time, Glass contacts are exclusive to Glass - they're not pulled from Google Contacts. As far as I know, you have to say "make a call " versus "make a call to 555-555-1234".

Yes, maybe one day we will be able to shout "ok glass allah allah jihad" for great fireworks, but that ain't even close to reality at this time. Wait, now I have an idea for an app...

Cracked Game Released To Get Back At Pirates

earls There should be a popularity metric to the game... (509 comments)

The more it's pirated, the more popular it becomes, the more popular it becomes, the more skus you move. But then I guess we lose the pirating is the ultimate evil of the universe message.

Chrome OS Remains Undefeated At Pwnium 3

earls Why not just setup a true ESXi server? (178 comments)

You could build a really nice server with the $1,100 left over after buying a $199 Acer Chromebook. A Pixel in this paradigm is the dick to the balls.

In Defense of Six Strikes

earls Litigation is the Seventh Strike (354 comments)

You don't. Don't worry, it's both. The "six strikes" are to build a case against the owner of the connection and after the owner "strikes out," they can expect a summons.

That's why they ask for confirmation: "Click the button below to confirm you received this Copyright Alert"

In court they'll say, "but your Honor, they acknowledge six times that copyright infringement was occurring and did nothing about it - exactly how many warnings do they need?!"
