scuzzlebutt Re:Corporate taxes (407 comments)

That's just asking too much. I know corporations are people and all, but we can't exactly expect them to have morals as well, can we?

New Usage-Based Insurance Software Can Track Drivers Using Smartphones

scuzzlebutt Re:Interesting, if optional (137 comments)

I guess you could thwart this by installing the software on an older device you don't use anymore and just leave it at home or the office.

Canada Tops List of Most Science-Literate Countries

scuzzlebutt Re:More useless statistics... (221 comments)

I am an anglophone from Texas, but I have a love of learning foreign languages, of which French is at the top of the list. On several occasions while visiting Montreal, I endeavored to speak French *only* and my experiences ranged from delight that I was speaking French so well to the other person answering me in English, which didn't exactly encourage me to continue in French. Perhaps the ones who answered me in English could hear my accent, or maybe they were anglophones themselves and thought it simpler to reply in English. Overall, I enjoyed my visits there and I'm looking forward to going again in the future.

Wearable Robot Adds Two Fingers To Your Hand

scuzzlebutt Amputees (77 comments)

I can see this being most useful for amputees that have only the use of one hand. The use case where one would normally use one hand to stabilize an object and the other to manipulate it would be very useful to this group of people.
