We are quickly moving towards a pantsless society, and I couldn't be happier.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I have to suspect that the real reason they are arguing against mods is that suffering and dying of muscular distrophy, or cystic fibrosis, or any other horrible genetic condition, is "natural".
Those people out there that are willing to accept the risks inherent to genetic modification shouldn't be limited by cowards that are OK with people dying, as long as they don't get their own hands dirty.
I'm going to go see if Yik Yak has an API that I can use. Then I'll run sentiment analysis on every post and chart it against its vote score. Then I can finally prove once and for all that everybody is an asshole (at least on one arbitrary social media site).
I can't imagine why they would change it. Especially to something so bland.
Here is a link to the source:
But aren't most retailers going to be upgrading in the near term anyway?
Here in Canada we upgraded to chip cards a while back, before contactless was available. Now it's getting to the point here where a retailer supporting contactless is the new norm. I'd estimate that it took about a year, maybe a bit less, to go from seeing contactless occasionally, to seeing it in a majority of stores. And stores here have a lot less pressure to upgrade, since they've already had chip readers for years.
I expect many people are getting diagnosed with Low T so they can get more bulked up at the gym faster.
Some men might try this, but it won't work. Like most of the endocrine system, testosterone is regulated through a feedback system. Basically, if you ingest testosterone, your blood testosterone won't go up, you'll just be reducing the amount of testosterone signalling hormone that your body produces. The only case where ingesting test will actually increase your test levels, is if you have a legitimate glandular problem.
When juice boxes use testosterone, it's a bit different. They are injecting heroic doses in order to overwhelm this system. If you tried to take that amount of test in a pill, it would be very harmful.
Seriously, it's easier to covertly film somebody with your phone, at least you can pretend you're playing Angry Birds or something.
Image analysis of what you're looking at.
Having your glasses analyze what you're looking at is an extremely cool concept, but not really feasible for a Glass type device. The explorer addition could record video for just a couple minutes. Battery life is a huge problem if you don't want a cord hanging out of your glasses.
For a device that sees and hears what you see and hear, you need something more like this: https://www.spaceglasses.com/
And you thought Glass got you funny looks...
I once saw a full grown man in tears while he was trying to write a simple Tizen app.
I attended a Hackthon once where a team was trying to write a Tizen app, and at the end of the Hackathon none of them were speaking to each other.
Seriously, it's like pulling teeth. I've been an Android/IOS/Blackberry developer for more years than I care to admit, and I'd rather carve "Hello World!" into my own flesh than write it in Tizen.
So lets jump on it. No time like the present.
