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.

Submission + - Save Domain Privacy Tell ICANN Don't Expose WHOIS Data (respectourprivacy.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Did you know that your privacy rights are currently under threat? ICANN is considering introducing a rule that would impact all netizens. If you care about your online privacy, this is a big deal.

Under new guidelines proposed by MarkMonitor and other organizations who represent the same industries that backed SOPA, domain holders with sites associated to "commercial activity" will no longer be able to protect their private information with WHOIS protection services. "Commercial activity" casts a wide net, which means a vast number of domain holders will be affected. Your privacy provider could be forced to publish your contact data in WHOIS or give it out to anyone who complains about your website, without due process. Why should a small business owner have to publicize her home address just to have a website?

We think your privacy should be protected, regardless of whether your website is personal or commercial, and your confidential info should not be revealed without due process. If you agree, please contact ICANN right away and demand your right to privacy and due process. Let them know you object to any release of info without a court order. There's no time to waste — the close date for comments is July 7, 2015.

Visit our new site RespectOurPrivacy.com and we'll guide you through the process of calling or emailing ICANN. Thanks!
