How about requiring the user to depress a preselected sequence of keys with their nose?

HTML5 vs. Flash — the Case For Flash

wtmoose Re:Counterpoint (510 comments)

Don't think for a minute that all these Flash ads won't be replaced by equivalent HTML5 ads.

Flash Support Confirmed For Android 2.2

wtmoose Re:WTF Are You Babbling About? (282 comments)

It is exactly about open standards for the web. What is this HTML5 content tollbooth you're talking about? Open standards give Apple control of the implementation not the content. Apple is perfectly happy to allow any web content on the device as long as they own the rendering engine. They do not want to be at the mercy of a third party - particularly Adobe - for the performance of their mobile devices, and rightly so.

Shuttle Reentry Over the Continental US

wtmoose Re:Anyone who has seen it before... (139 comments)

Saw it once in Austin late 2001. It pretty much looked like a contrail made out of fire. It moved slowly, but eventually spanned the entire sky. For a few moments I thought it was a plane bombing (this was right after 9/11). If it passes overhead, you can't miss it.

Rupert Murdoch Hates Google, Loves the iPad

wtmoose Re:The other reason Murdoch likes the iPad... (412 comments)

Don't think the outrageous pricing will last long; the WSJ app currently has a 1.5 star rating in the app store.

The Apple Tablet Interface Must Be Like This

wtmoose Re:...and another thing. (278 comments)

Maybe you're thinking of a different .com button? The one I use only shows up (along with "." and "/") in URL fields in place of the space bar. So three highly applicable keys replace one completely inapplicable key. I use them almost every time. No joke.

Apple, Google, AT&T Respond To the FCC Over Google Voice

wtmoose Re:the point (326 comments)

This argument doesn't make sense because the upgrades are optional and cost does not accumulate. In other words, if you don't think the upgrade is worth ~$100, you can skip one or more cycles and still pay ~$100 when you do decide to upgrade.

High Expectations For Google Android

wtmoose Re:First post? (274 comments)

Your points are valid, but to put your rant in perspective, the iPhone is leading competitors in customer satisfaction by a large margin. Complain all you want, but the iPhone is a groundbreaking device and the best game in town for most people.
