Journal Journal: Brain Computer Interface Hat

Nature has an article about a brain-computer-interface hat that "can read your thoughts". You can "stroll down a virtual street" by just thinking about walking. I have to admit, if I could do something in the virtual world just by thinking about it, I doubt that it would be walking down a street.

Journal Journal: Linspire as Beerware 1

Linspire, everyone's favorite WalMart distro, can be downloaded for free until September 6. They claim they are doing it to remove any confusion with Andrew Betts' Freespire, which is now called Squiggle. Actually, this confused me even more. According to their site, Linspire (free or not) includes "a lot of legal and paid-for 3rd-party licenses for things like mp3, Java, Flash, Quick Time, Windows Media, Bitstream fonts, Real media, music, etc.".
