Intel's New E-Reader For the Visually Impaired

grozniy Re:ASCAP will put a stop to this (111 comments)

I am not an expert on this issue, but shouldn't the publishers supply information in variable formats for people with disabilities? Same people that write numbers on the buttons in the elevator, put brail tags there. Taking a snapshot of that would probably be a violation of copyright laws since it's being taken by a device not approved by a publisher.

grozniy Gravitational pull??? (404 comments)

Ok, so in order to boil water in space, u create a gravitational pull to keep the water down, and also pull the denser air down to make the steam rise. If they can pull the air, why cant they put this gravitational unit to use and pull all the green gases out of the atmosphere - filter out the bad stuff and save earth from the global warming?
