Improv Project, Vivaldi Tablet Officially Dead

mossy the mole Re:Hardware is hard (71 comments)

Hardware is hard. Good hardware is harder.

Yeh, IMO were not going to see a really serious open hardware till some really nasty DRM/Trusted computing evil comes along and turns peoples minds to it.

Dmitry Itskov Wants To Help You Live Forever Via an Android Avatar

mossy the mole Re:Copies are not you! (383 comments)

Another idiot that doesn't realize the difference between a copy and themself.

I've always taken the view that even if it is only a 'copy' if it is still around after your organic body dies then It's you.

Diablo 3 To Be Released On May 15th

mossy the mole Re:Worthy successor? (246 comments)

On the one hand you say bots ruin the game, and on the other you complain about Blizzard shutting down WoW Glider. Well, which is it? Should they support botting or not?

IMO My problem with the WOW Glider was blizzard interfering with another company's program simply because it interfaced with WOW sets a bad precedent and (to me) is an intrusion on the freedom of the user. Not that I like bots but they should catch then by there in game actions.

The Consoles Are Dying, Says Developer

mossy the mole Controls (309 comments)

With all this talk about graphics performance, I'd say the best weapon consoles have at the moment is physical gaming controls Touch Screens are wonderful for many things but unless the ipad 3 generation are a massive improvement, then any game that plays best with d-pad and buttons will still lack something on tablet/phone.

When it comes to 3D TV:

mossy the mole Re:3D movies (404 comments)

I don't second that. My 3D tv is recent and does make the screen darker. I guess it depends upon the hardware/software, and they can probably display the movie in 3D brighter, so that it appears ok through the glasses.

Pretty sure the OP was talking about the cinema not the home. And I have to agree with him 3D movies are less bright (probably the glasses really) Hopefully (well, if 3D movies last) they'll upgrade to brighter projection equipment.

WikiLeaks Cable: NASDAQ Folded To Chinese Pressure

mossy the mole Re:Stop selling debt to China (269 comments)

who claims he can build a functional moon base in 8 years

Not to agree with the people concerned, but I'd say that that was possible assuming (hah!) that the right funding was provided

Never happen I know, but its still possible.

Ask Slashdot: Is Your Data Safe In the Cloud?

mossy the mole Re:Sponsorships? Really? (332 comments)

Note to slashdot: It'll be hard to maintain whatever shred of journalistic veneer and integrity you have left if you start posting advertisements for sister websites as 'sponsorships' of semi-legitimate discussions or stories. The fact that everyone else does it is still no excuse.

While the whole sponsored ask slashdot does seem a bit off, at least the posts from the sponsors are clearly marked. As long as that continues maybe it wont be too bad. (On the assumption that they dont allow sponsorship from any really evil companies)

Breath Detector To Help Find Earthquake Survivors

mossy the mole Customs Use ? (62 comments)

Sounds like an improved version of the detectors used to find illegal immigrants hidden in trucks. If it works It'll probably see much more use by customs that the rescue people.

Controlling Games and Apps Through Muscle Sensors

mossy the mole Re:true mobile computing? (47 comments)

so how long until the computer is a box on the hip/back/wherever, and the IO is a pair of semi-transparent oleds (see recent samsung and lg product demos) glasses and this worn up the sleeve somewhere?

Not with this technology, It seems fine for little things like the examples but not for anything major. Imagine writing an email with muscle movements (or doing the hokey-Cokey as is will appear)
