HUGO Winning Author Daniel Keyes Has Died

kcwhitta Re:Other variants (66 comments)

And a couple of newer movies that I am out of energy to track down.

Limitless would likely be one.

Should Self-Driving Cars Chauffeur Shopping 'Whales' For Free?

kcwhitta Ah, Google being evil again (213 comments)

I'm sure this has already been said, but Google's positive index on the evil scale seems to be higher (or lower). Once again, they seem to be bordering on true neutral from a D&D sense; I guess that's not too bad considering they are a huge public corporation (that I don't think I'll work for any time soon). ~ Keenan

Why There Shouldn't Be a Chess World Champion

kcwhitta Computer Chess Champion (284 comments)

Based on just the title, I thought this was going to be about computer chess opponents consistently beating world chess champions, making the title unnecessary.

Microsoft Patent Hints At Search Results Tailored To User's Mood, Intelligence

kcwhitta Re:Number one reason I dislike Microsoft... (146 comments)

And Google is *not* trying to "help" their customer? Google screws with search results all the time: it used to be much more geek-friendly than it is today. It thinks it knows what I want to search better than I do: thinking I make typos when I don't, and it includes search terms I don't want to include. Many of the geek customizations for advanced users that used to work are no longer available.

Ask Slashdot: Re-Entering the Job Market As a Software Engineer?

kcwhitta Freelance (435 comments)

I actually worked at Microsoft awhile, quit for a couple of years, and then decided to freelance. You've just got to be stubborn and have a lot of passion. It can be done.

Google Health's Lifeline Runs Out

kcwhitta Google being stupid, again - more to the story? (196 comments)

Yet another stupid move by Google. At this rate, Apple is going to win hands-down with Facebook coming up behind them. Gotta wonder what's really going on.

Indian Woman Convicted of Murder By Brain Scan

kcwhitta The Truth Machine (453 comments)

'The Truth Machine' written in 1997 is a sci-fi novel that goes into this idea fairly well, and provides a bunch of other near-future interesting technologies. Not perfect by far, and it's out of print now, but you can get see more info about it or pick it up at Amazon. (The first 1-star rating was quite harsh in my opinion because the tech ideas expressed make it worth at least 3 stars, many of them implementable with today's technologies.)
