From a quick glance in the article, I couldn't find whether or not the test was the same for the 70 year-olds born in 1900 and in 1930. Classic intelligence tests (IQ tests) need to be 'normalized' every few years, because the general populace is getting smarter. If they used the same test, this is not at all surprising. It would hold for a much wider range of ages
I work in forensics too, and I have somewhat the same experience with people in police forces. However, the place where I work is independent from the government, and only does the research. Law enforcement officers are regularly 'pissed off' that we can't do some facial recognition from 20x20 pixel faces, etc. However, the experts at our company always refrain from that practice
This would result in all the gadgets I use in flight (Nintendo DS, iPod, Laptop) to be stocked away, making airtravel an even bigger pain in the ass.
How many incidents with batteries occur anyway? The figures suggest that a small percentage of all batteries are potentially dangerous, and I've never seen figures of how many people die of these batteries. Small fires can be put out by the cabin crew, and it certainly sounds it's going to cost a lot more than it will generate in terms of safety
Yes, you're right.. However, when people SEE something happen in a video they're probably more likely to believe it than when a newscaster says it. The brain processes this information in a different way.
On the other hand, the FOX/CNN have commercial interest as well, so exciting news will generate more revenue. So maybe the speculation just shifts from the news channels to this commercial company
Although from a technological point of view it is very interesting, a lot of details missing from the regular videos need to be 'made up' for the reconstruction. I think that's a dangerous move, as the viewer may base its opinion on video footage.
I mean most if not all ads can be easily blocked, even by laymen, but needing to sign up for something? That's an irritation you really can't avoid.

If I remember correctly, Zenmap was already the default GUI for Nmap from the 4.x series.
But happy with a new version nonetheless
Its success has forced rivals to raise their game, and the past two years have seen Microsoft, Apple, and Opera close the features gap significantly.
When you look at it with a bird's eye view, I think FireFox has closed the gap, feature-wise.
True, add-ons never became really successful in Opera, but it was mostly complete already before firefox gained popularity
