C'mon. Most people are doing this. WHY?! Because Snow Leopard (10.6.x) is the first release of OSX that removes the PPC aspect of it. What software developer, in 2014 wishes to provide legacy support for an architecture that Apple abandoned 5+ years ago? No new Macs are being developed with PPC. Let's move with the times already.
This is my biggest issue with this sort of thing; I still have my original Nintendo Entertainment System from 1985. I am an avid fan of retro gaming. What if, in 30 years, I still have an XBox 720? Is Microsoft going to guarantee lifetime online authentication for this console? When/if the servers go offline, it's time to throw it in the trash? This is a piece of hardware that I would be paying for, and should be able to enjoy it for 50+ years, pass it down, whatever.
Errr, this is madness. What I used to love about the old April Fools
So uhm, Slashdot, when is LulzSec getting it's own icon? Seems to be the top favorite for news these days.
Haha. Back in my day
Could be pretty interesting for 3D interactive worlds; these type of worlds have always been far more successful on the PC. Those static/boring standing/dancing animations 3d characters currently have could be a thing of the past. Interaction between avatars could be a bit more "real" with something like this. It certainly is no "Lawnmower Man" hardware however it's an interesting step for metaverses and MMORPGs. Granted, the amount of space (if based on Kinect specs) you would need for your computer station would be enormous, but I think "the computer" really could benefit from these sort of user input technology.
If you're HARDCORE you hold DOWN the SHIFT key when you need all CAPS. Kudos to Google for bringing out the hardcore typist in us all! That crappy key was nothing but problems.
Seems more like the ocular implant used by Seven of Nine. Perhaps this technology can be expanded to use a display rather than a lens so we can have Terminator style vision.
And the earth will always be flat. Magic is simply science we currently yet do not understand.
Holy crap, it's coming!
