Linux Compatibility With VR Goggles?
I'm just wondering, in what way are VR goggles "cool"? Every time I've ever seen someone wearing them, the word "dorkbot" has come to mind...
TSA To Allow Laptops In Approved Bags
Stricter measures?? The TSA people seem, to be generous, none too bright - I think they're already working at peak efficiency. Sadly, despite all of their misplaced, dehumanizing effort, they still don't seem able to do the job. I flew to Montana last summer, and TSA did a great job of confiscating my shampoo and shaving creme. However, when I arrived, I found that I'd accidentally left two knives in my carry on baggage, which were not detected. For fun, I left them in on my flight back home. TSA found the knife with a 2-1/2 inch blade at the gate, and chastised me most harshly (and confiscated it). They did not find the knife with a 6 inch blade, however. As far as I'm concerned, they are more "The TSA Show" than real security, placed there to demonstrate the gov't's commitment to security, rather than provide it.
