Comment reptile brain vs mammalian brain (Score 1) 786

Lack of empathy isn't just the fault of autism, it's also due to the nature of the business.

When I'm coding I'm in a creative, but heavily logical space. My brain is just crunching paths, 1s and 0s and firmly sat on the reptile side of the fence. If I want to go out and socialise with people and relax the mammalian, emotional, side will need some warming up, especially after 9 hours of heavy logical, reptile thinking.

This is the nature of normal people's brains, male or female.

To have someone firmly using the logical side of their brain and then expect them to be immediately empathic is just not going to work, regardless of gender and focus.

Comment Always On Sucks (Score 4, Interesting) 230

I've got an XBox One and currently a really shit internet connection (digital nomad in Spain sharing wifi across 3 different flats).

When the internet goes dodgy and the XBox One loses access, I can't save my game and the games start missing features.

Sure my predicament is a bit odd, but I can't be the only person with flakey Internet. Not being able to save a single player game just because you aren't online is a bit off imo.

it tells you in the article ...

For those not familiar with Force Touch, it detects how hard a user presses down on the screen giving an additional type of input. As Bloomberg mentions, it is already used in the Apple Watch and new MacBook Pros and, while we can only speculate how Apple will implement it in iOS, the potential here is huge.

Comment Secure Skype Replacement? (Score 1) 69

Can anyone recommend a secure Skype replacement? I've been using Telegraph for real time chat, which has a great mobile experience, but only one of my friends has transitioned to it, everyone else is still all over WhatsApp. Telegraph also doesn't do video data.

I saw Snowdon talk last week and whilst he didn't say anything that hadn't already been said and printed, his passion has definitely motivated me to take a bit more personal responsibility.

Several of my IRC channels have now also moved to Slack, which is probably a step backwards for security.
