I don't think Virtual Reality or even Augmented Reality will really take off until anything that needs to be worn is VERY unobtrusive, light, so easy a caveman can use it, etc. OR nothing needs to be worn at all. High-tech contacts could be in either category (worn/not worn) imho, since I've been wearing contacts for 15+ years and I'm so used to them. Maybe a retinal implant. Yeahhh. Okay, retinal implants or Holodecks. Anything less would be uncivilized.

Aren't patents supposed to cover "not obvious" things? What, are Samsung phones not supposed to sync data? TAPPING on a phone number to CALL it? Simply amazing. I don't suppose anyone at Apple ever thought the money spent waging war against Samsung would be better spent...oh, I don't know...making better products?

...has lost all meaning. Who cares this chunk of dirt on the western hemisphere has independence from a different chunk of dirt on the eastern hemisphere? I also no longer consider this to be the United States of America. America used to mean -- to me -- a free and fair land to be proud of. Just United States now. Although I admit, better than a lot of hell holes on other parts of this spinning blue marble. Still could be better. Much better. Stop F'ing the poor and good F'ing the corporations.

A geek and a nerd are mostly the same. I've always thought nerds like learning for the sake of learning, and geeks obsess about certain topics and learn about those. Nerds are more introverted (like me) and geeks are more extroverted. Basically geeks are nerds that want to be socially accepted while nerds -- who still like positive attention -- don't expect social acceptance. Geeks have more friends, nerds have less. Actually geeks may have more acquaintances than close friends, while nerds have more close friends than acquaintances. I consider myself a nerd, if anyone wants to know "who in the hell typed that?" Okay, thank you for your time, please return to your regularly scheduled program already in progress.

Why does it seem when major problems like this arise companies are quick to dismiss/deny/ignore whatever as the first response?

I am not sure of your personal beef, but from the article which identifies a minor bug "have contacted Samsung to report the issue." Where is Samsung dismissing or denying...or ignoring the problem.

Calm down there sparky, I'm no Samsung fanboy (although I am looking at a Samsung monitor right now), I was just referring to the summary "So far Samsung didn't acknowledge the problem though it seems to affect all S3 phones." I guess I should never trust /. summaries to be accurate in any way, shape or form.
