Man Physically Assaulted At McDonald's For Wearing Digital Eye Glasses

imgumbydamnit Re:Stupid people fear what they don't understand (1198 comments)

By your comment, I assume you did not dig deeper, so I will spoon-feed you. Steve Mann (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Mann) is a prominent researcher in augmented reality. He's been part-cyborg for over a decade. The current device is screwed into his skull. It does not record video, except when damaged. Oh, and he's Canadian, so rather than being an 'uppity prick' I bet he kept saying sorry.

Please PLEASE have the things say, in a deep electronic voice, "Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof." while walking. If they do that, I will buy all of them immediately.

Also, there's a moral issue with conscripting innocent animals into a war role. Apparently there's no such moral issue with using machines to kill people.

Yet dogs are in common use.

imgumbydamnit Go (367 comments)

First thing that popped into my head when I saw the available selections:

Well this car is automatic, it's systematic, it's hydromatic
Why it's greased lightnin'!


Back to the question: 15Mbps at home, but 100Mbps at work (after everyone else goes home.)

My condolences. My grandmother passed away at 102 as well, this past February. She too said that she was ready to move on.

Retina Implant Company Seeks FDA Trial Approval

imgumbydamnit Re:Macular degeneration? (46 comments)

Unfortunately, I don't think this particular implant would help. With Macular Degeneration, the retinal damage is not limited to photoreceptors. Depending on if she has the 'wet' or the 'dry' form of MD , there are some treatment options.

I say (N. Hemisphere) Fall starts ...

imgumbydamnit Re:More than four seasons (454 comments)

We have a lot seasons here in New England, too: Winter, mud, black fly, mosquito, tourist, hunting. Winter is longer than all of the others combined, although not as long as your winter(s), I'm sure.

Is that ...tourist, hunting..., or is it tourist-hunting? Wait, that would be Georgia (cue Banjos).

imgumbydamnit Only the oldest and newest survive (317 comments)

Most of them go to the recycler these days, but not my old IBM XT. That's tucked neatly away for posterity. Now if I could only find my old TI-99/4A in Dad's attic...
