Microsoft Research Brings Kinect-Style Depth Perception to Ordinary Cameras

kryliss Re:Microsoft still can't get the UI right (31 comments)

Yes I know, I'm feeding the troll. Have you ever thought that this may some day be useful for people that have that have disabilities where they can't grab a mouse? My mom takes meds that make her hands shake all over and she has a terrible time with a mouse, she sometimes has to grab her mouse hand with her other hand just so she can click the button on the right spot. How about people who have arthritis so bad that they can't even grab the mouse?

"Synthetic Tracking" Makes It Possible to Find Millions of Near Earth Asteroids

kryliss And yet.. (101 comments)

It always amazes me that the people that complain all the time about Slashdot with dupes, bad articles, etc. come back every day just so they can tell everyone how bad it is. It's as though they sit and wait for it just so they can make long winded comments on how bad Slashdot is. It is getting really old.

With XP's End of Life, Munich Will Distribute Ubuntu CDs

kryliss Re:Microsoft will pull back (426 comments)

Not always true. I have worked on many machines where the Live CD will setup wireless/video/audio/other device and when the install has completed and rebooted, those things didn't work. I would have to manually install them. Usually not too difficult of a task but more of an annoyance.

Montreal Union Wants a Camera On Every Policeman's Uniform

kryliss Re:ok (320 comments)

I would think that they could be remotely turned off by calling in a 10100 or 10200, then the light on the camera turns red to show it's not recording. Then they have to call it in within 5-10 minutes to reactivate it.. light goes green for on.
