Window Washing a Skyscraper Is Beyond a Robot's Reach

instinct71 Re:A cost equation (203 comments)

What the article says is that it is beyond a present day robot's reach to guarantee the same level of cleanliness as a human worker across different conditions. It is not just cost, we don't have the technical ability to make good enough robots that clean as well as humans. No amount of money helps.

Ask Slashdot: What Distros Have You Used, In What Order?

instinct71 tried several of them (867 comments)

I started with Red Hat because I was forced to use that at a start up. Then I tried Mandrake and SUSE for a while before being stuck with the Gentoo bug. The excitement soon vanished and I switched to Ubuntu. Have been there since. There was a tiny blip with that, when I switched to Mint for a while.

G1 Google Phone Could End Up the Most Popular Console Ever

instinct71 Re:At the risk of modding... (116 comments)

I kind of agree to this reasoning. Nintendo wii even now doesn't support a decent cricket game. If you want to sell your console in India, you should necessarily have cricket. That is the game 2 year olds start playing. People are crazy about that in this land.

So a reasonably strong hardware, priced at lets say ~100$, aimed at such a crowd will fetch big money.
