I thought it was a thin client of sorts.
I know how it works and if I was at a bar with someone besides my wife I might seriously consider beating up big brother. There is a time and a place for everything and I am going to say a bar is not a place for Google Glass.
1. People from SF are quite often assholes.
2. Drunk people are quite often assholes.
3. People resent cyborgs.
4. Claude Van Dame wasn't there to protect her and Steven Seegal (sp.) was giving bunny ears to Putin.
No. That is their only consumer product a one dimensional version of one aspect of their primary original goal. The founding idea was a image projected directly on the retina using a mems and a LED or a low energy laser (can't remember the light source.) There were tests with dedicated fiber between Japan and WSU with multiple SGI workstations that were supposedly lifelike. They have shipped product to Honda for techs to have complicated manuals projected in the FOV for service and mfg. Also some military stuff but the website never said shit about it.
It is the best possible display. One pixel per optic nerve on the back of the retina, the retina is the projection surface.
I have been tracking this for a long ass time and with both google glass and oculus I keep asking where the fuck is Microvision? Their tech deals with all of the FOV, depth of field, focus, focal length, and resolution issues in spades so... WTF?
Waste not want not. No that's not right. Monopolize sodomize? Hmmm better. Seriously as in investor I'd like to kick everyone involved in the balls MANY MANY TIMES.
Thier approach to security screening seems to work despite a highly and continuously motivated opposition.
It is not naive the TSA is naive. If you want security you can have it by doing real security screening and not "security theater." Ask the Israelis about it some time. I flew out of Amsterdam the day after a scare, it was the first security screening I have ever had. Someone looked me dead in the eye and asked my why half of my passport was in Arabic. He looked at me, listened to me, and made a real judgment. It is all bullshit anyway post 9/11 everyone knows that even if the terrorists are able to kill 90% of the people of the plane they are still not going to be able to kill all the passengers plus the external target. By making the risk=damage*likelihood equation infinite they have closed that door for ever. Someone tries to hijack the plane I am on and I am reciting "we few, we happy few" and the then going to stomp those fuckers to death with evey other top level predator on the plane. I will feel bad if they cut the stewardess' throat but that is not going to stop me wrapping my coat around my forearm and pulling the handle out of my luggage and reminding him has he dies that I will bury him in pigskin with his feet pointing to Mecca.
Buying Firewall used to put you on the federal watch list.
Unless it was a real free market. You know the kind with perfect information, no barriers to entry and no economic profit. You know the kind of free market that has never existed anywhere ever.
It is called the battery gas station. Have your battery removable to you can pull up to a station and have it swapped. All of the car companies told the inventor to go fuck himself.
It was death twitches and a tap to click gesture pad.
According to Outliers by Malcolm Galdwell most of the richest people ever got that way from oil. That's not subsidies that's their marginal tax rate.
There was a bit on something I read or NPR about how the louder the asshats are the more likely normal people will stop and stare and say... "Wow that guy is an asshat."
Your uncle probably also didn't give 10% of the car-fixing money to an anti-gay pyramid scheme, either
There I fixed it.
