Scientists Estimate 40% of Red Dwarfs Have A Rocky Planet
If only we could vacation at these distances. Was there any science to wormholes? I mean, apart from the nematology.
4 UK Urban Explorers Face Orders Not To Talk With Each Other For 10 Years
I imagine breaking and entry is a crime. They are trying to make a ASBO serve as a deterrent to repeat behaviour, rather than give them the 5 hours community service or whatever minimal punishment they would have had.
Sony's Solution To Split-Screen Multiplayer

Sony's Solution To Split-Screen Multiplayer
3D sends a different image to the left eye to the right, and the glasses for these screens flicker appropriately to only show one image to each eye.
From what I can gather, If the sync for the left eye is employed in both lenses, the screen will display Gamer 1's screen. If the sync for the Right eye is used, then similarly the right eye will show Gamer 2's image.
If you have the usual sync on the glasses, you will see both images - one in each lens.
If it is a sufficient advantage, you could play with your game screen, one eye shut, and peek at your opponent's screen by switching which eye you have open.
Wolfenstein Gets Ray Traced
1. There is no reason why a game would need a raytraced chandelier. But how good is raytracing at deformation and breakage - what happens if I shoot that rendered glass plate?
2. The reflections make sense as a tactical advantage , but the screen recursion doesn't even fit with reality. Screens have a resolution, cameras taint an image, so zooming into a screen shouldn't lead to a Portal-like infinity. Is it possible to set restraints/limits and add effects to situations like this?
Anyway, that was fun, if a little shiny. I love this kind of tech, but its just that little step short of being a game changer for me.
Pentagon Aims To Buy Up Book
presumably you'd have to do a denial of service? This is an argument for eBooks that I hadn't considered before....
Google Remotely Nukes Apps From Android Phones
Google are not nuking Apps because the go against their ideology/ego/compulsiveness guidelines, but because they pose a risk.
Touchpad Meets Morphing Keyboard
if Swype supported it.
Emulation is a fantastic field, and one thing they are great at is making old games look great, Scale2x and so on. The thing is, I am pretty sure I have seen it crank out some super-massive framerates. for some titles. The video for Starblazer gave no indication of how it was rendered. Which, in addition to the video being encoded for flv, softens the initial point in this article.
Good links in it though - I like it when people give interesting references.
Devices To Take Textbooks Beyond Text
I would like a *cheap* usb ebook screen so I can reduce the eye-strain when reading text at work/home etc. Why doesn't that exist?
US Court Tells Microsoft To Stop Selling Word
If the patent office remains the shambles it is now, eventually there will be no such thing as an exercisable patent.
Given that any patent will immediately be usurped by Chinese entrepreneurs, the patent office practically only penalises companies in the U.S.
Add to that the business of patenting "scratching your ass", is worth shy of $300 million, I can't see any remedy.
18 Android Phones, In 3 Flavors, By Year's End
And yet, Chinese phone companies insist on FAKING android:

presumably because these phones are somehow cheaper to make or easier to tap.
Is The Best Game One You Were Never Intended To Play?
Eternal Darkness for the Gamecube tried something akin to that - no, the plot wasn't trying to recover files from a corrupt hard disk - but it did use your knowledge of Gamecube related events outwith the game to piss the hell out of you. Genius.
Maybe this is a spoiler...
Sarah Connor Chronicles — Why It Died
Exactly, the sequel should have been a robot going after the Great Great Great Grandad in the Wild West, or Industrial Revolution era Northern England.

How Piracy Affected the Launch of Demigod
Although these were exceptional circumstances, if we imagine that the ratios they experienced were true 18000/118000 is about 15% are payers...
If they reduced the price to 15% of $40 = $6 ...Would that ratio change by much?
Would more people buy the game overall?

Viacom Vs. YouTube, Beyond Privacy
which for them is worth millions in marketing research. Even if you have never watched a single bit of their intellectual property - they still get to know. This is a gross infringement of everyones privacy. If anything they should be allowed to see who watched particular videos (that viacom can prove infringed) - not the whole damn lot.
