Government To Require Vehicle-to-vehicle Communication

randomuser2 Believe it or not, this is a good idea. (390 comments)

All of the complexity of current-day cars is driven by the automakers. If this is mandated as a requirement from the government, they won't be permitted to charge us much more than the $100.00 per car it would actually cost them (service parts are 10x manufacturing costs). Think of all of the garbage on current cars right now. I'm particularly fond of the laughable refrigerated cup-holder option, or the tire inflation sensors. Realistically this doesn't have to be integrated to a greater community than a 1/4 mile radius around the vehicle. I would hope even more that there were no user-interface components at all, but rather a warning that around the bend are three stopped cars in the middle of the road... More information is helpful. It just needs to be tailored to suit the situation, and it shouldn't necessarily be shared with the driver unless it is helpful. We already have more than enough distractions behind the wheel.

Myst Was Supposed To Change the Face of Gaming. What Is Its Legacy?

randomuser2 Re:The graphics were simply brilliant (374 comments)

I couldn't agree more. With the exception of side-scrolling platformers, I can't see what kind of game Myst didn't have an effect on. TBH, I kinda wonder what inspired them to make the game in the first place, given the crap that we had before it.

randomuser2 Old News?? (743 comments)

The real shame here is that we're hearing about this now, after the kid's been in jail for 3 months. WTF?

Ask Slashdot: What Magazines Do You Still Read?

randomuser2 Adbusters (363 comments)

Once a year, the "Big Ideas" issue. I was a little proud when they organized those 99% protests, even though I didn't 100% agree with them.. I never even thought to check for it online... I guess I prefer it as a stocking stuffer. Kinda hypocritical of me when one of the first ads is for "Buy Nothing Day"....
