What’s the Internet? (on 1994's Today Show)

objekt I recall a book from 1994 (262 comments)

It was called "The Internet Directory" or something like that, and was nothing but a list of Usenet newsgroups. That's exactly what some people thought it was.

Do You Have a Secret Immunity To 3D Movies?

objekt My eyes are not perfectly aligned (495 comments)

And whereas I do have some sensation of 3D vision, it's not quite as good as what most people have.

I was a forceps delivery baby, and my head and eye socket on one side were slightly misshapen. I say slightly because now at adulthood most people never notice anything off about my eyes or head unless I call it to their attention. Mt left eye droops a little relative to my right eye, but I can mentally pick which eye I favor at any given time. Sometimes it's a blessing, other times a curse. Like if I favor my left eye, my right eye aims oddly skyward. O_o

Microsoft discovers competition; Apple and Google!

objekt objekt writes  |  about 7 years ago

objekt writes "According to this CNN article, Microsoft Corp will 'pit itself against' competitors such as Google Inc and Apple Inc, chairman Bill Gates told Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in an interview. 'There are always great companies we are competing with. Apple and Google, for example, are receiving a lot of attention these days, and they do a good job too,' he said, adding that Microsoft will still pit itself against those companies. 'You have to keep in mind that Microsoft today has more brilliant scientists than ever, more sales than ever, more profit than ever,' he said."
