Police Organization Wants Cop-Spotting Dropped From Waze App

fxsoap Re:Who eats doughnuts with the doughnut men? (450 comments)

if it were to be removed, people would just use "Pothole" or some other code to represent the same threat. The app/idea itself would need to be shut down

New Advance Confines GMOs To the Lab Instead of Living In the Wild

fxsoap Re:Until... (130 comments)

Fellatio didn't start until the Roman Empire (thats when public baths started) and ancient Egyptians weren't dark. They are the same pigment a tanned Caucasian is. Now Nubians, they were dark.

IS that true? Or is that just when it was recorded? I had never heard that before!

What Will Google Glass 2.0 Need To Actually Succeed?

fxsoap Re:Size (324 comments)

This could be used for police/military for live feed or 'body' camera's as well with many purposes, good point. That would be a better space for them to work in ;)

What Will Google Glass 2.0 Need To Actually Succeed?

fxsoap Re:Size (324 comments)

I posted about it up a little but if you don't know it's happening, you won't know to have any reaction. So being more covert isn't really solution just that it can't look like anything different. It would have to blend with my normal dress and not draw attention to me

What Will Google Glass 2.0 Need To Actually Succeed?

fxsoap Re:Size (324 comments)

So, you have no issues with people recording you when you don't know about it?

You think is OK for some Glasshole to walk into a restaurant where you are enjoying a public yet private dinner with a friend, record it and put it up on the Intertubes? You are OK with that. I mean, it is a "public" place, right?

I know, public places and all, just posing the question...

Well, in that case, I wouldn't know, and I wouldn't really know to care! Of course I would want it to be done to me...but if it's obvious (kind of on par with holding a cell phone up like you're recording someone) then people will be bothered and you will see videos of the people lunge at the glass wearer and yell at them to take them off.

Microsoft Reveals Windows 10 Will Be a Free Upgrade

fxsoap Re:Only for the first year (570 comments)

Regardless of the push made, average people almost always, stick with what they know. Changing to Linux/Apple is a huge leap unless you provide something that is just as simple and easy for them to use/learn or is almost identical. It would require a huge time investment otherwise that most won't want to give.

The Tech Industry's Legacy: Creating Disposable Employees

fxsoap Affecting many industries (263 comments)

This must have rippled beyond the Tech industry. Larger companies now a days lean towards contracting employees, never making people full time and cycling them out to avoid paying real wages/benefits/etc. It's much cheaper for them and the business model is becoming very attractive to those who watch the bottom line.

What Will Google Glass 2.0 Need To Actually Succeed?

fxsoap Size (324 comments)

The hardest problem I've seen people have with Google Glass is how obvious it is you are wearing the glasses. People in public assume you are recording them and it bothers them.

If you over come that, I think it would be a fantastic barrier to remove.

After that, give me a utility for these glasses that make me want to buy them/wear them/use them that benefits me beyond what I have or can have now.

That will make them much more attractive in many ways.

There are also quite a few companies that insert clauses into your hiring agreement stating that things you invent while employeed by them (and are related in anyway to your employment) are theirs. Most people don't notice/read them.
