Kinect Hack Builds 3D Maps of the Real World
Wouldn't it be great - tweak this with GPS data or something similar, and then find some building that you think would be great for your multiplayer game. Simply walk around the building with a laptop and a Kinect, and after a few sweeps the software models the interior which you could use to import into your map editor...
Hackers Dual-Boot Chrome OS With Ubuntu Linux on CR-48
I think it's rather telling about a product when it's not even out yet and people are already trying to circumvent it's OS because it doesn't do what's desired...

Toyota Acceleration and Embedded System Bugs
You see? We give the machines a small amount of AI and they rise against us, even in such primitive states. God forbid we ever give one a fully functional AI brain...it'll be Skynet all over again...which never happened, but still could again...err...
Game Endings Going Out of Style?
I have to say, COD: Modern Warfare had one of the most satisfying endings I've ever played through. Part of it was the fact that you knew you were near the end when you were playing it - it wasn't an abrupt "Mission Accomplished: Game Over!"
Angry AT&T Customers May Disrupt Service
No, sorry...TW sucks and I am actually more than happy now that I dropped them and am receiving OTA HD which is not only free but better quality than TW's, as well as what other shows I need off the Internet.
I got a letter from a collection agency a mere two months after the last bill was unpaid -- if I didn't hate them before, I do now even more -- which I didn't think was possible.
The only way I can hate them more now is if I found out the CEO of TW anally raped my grandmother...
14-Year-Old Wins International Programming Contest
Don't know how this is news. Anyone who concentrates on something hard enough will get it eventually, age doesn't matter. It seems silly to people in America maybe because kids now are too interested in jacking their brains into Xbox Live and their iPhones.
I used to be heavy into that stuff as well... but then I got a social life and found out early on that life is way too short to waste your life completely on it. Do it for fun or for your job, but if you eat, live and breathe it, it will destroy you. Oh and having sex became priority number one...
A Hypothesis On Segway Hate
The guy with a Mac sitting at Starbucks blogging about his new car. The dude at the bar with a bluetooth headset in his ear while he's not even on the phone. They guy tooling down the street with a Segway to get to the Apple store for the new iPhone. They all fit into the category of 'look at me, I'm important, please take notice of this so I can feel better about myself.'
The kid with the netbook directly jacking into the school server to change his grades. The Navy Seal with the headset and mic relaying position information. They dude on the skateboard doing an ollie over some trash while trying to get to work on time. They're all doing something functional, and look pretty damn cool doing it.

GPS-Based System For Driving Tax Being Field Tested
Just put a new tax on car owners. If you own 1 car, you are taxed very lightly. If you own say 3 cars, the tax starts getting heavier...tax the bastards that have a fleet of cars in a warehouse somewhere (and I'm not talking about dealerships).
Remote Kill Flags Surface In Kindle
People will NOT obey an unjust law. When corporations declare that they sold you a license instead of a product and start turning off access to what the customer paid for...well, you reap what you sow. There are not enough lawyers out there to sue everyone who downloads. Ask the RIAA if you don't believe me.
Ask anyone who lived during the Prohibition era as well...
Time For Voice-Mail To Throw In the Towel
I completely agree. How many times have you gotten a voice mail from either a bad connection or bad background noise and had to listen to it 20 times as well as call up half the cast of CSI to help you decipher it? Do they really think a computer is going to be able to get that right when it doesn't even understand what a 'Barack Obama' is?

New Law Will Require Camera Phones To "Click"
So if I have a small digital camera that is NOT part of a cell phone, and it doesn't make a clicking noise, that's ok?
So the next bill will include digital cameras? So then every digital camera must then be outfitted with sound capabilities just for this reason alone?
Am I the only one taking crazy pills here or what???
Japanese Scientists Claim To Reconstruct Images From Brain Data
I have a feeling that if someone were record one of their nightmares and then watch it when awake, the conscious brain wouldn't be able to cope with what the subconscious brain can.
Watching it would give you nightmares. And the cycle begins...
Eight-Armed Animal Preceded Dinosaurs
So big whoop. They were like 25 cents in gumball machines. You'd throw them at windows and they'd slowly crawl down.
