Exactly. A friend of mine already had this in 2006, I am pretty sure. It measured the actual blood sugar level and adjusted the amount of injected insulin accordingly. I wonder how this appeared on Slashdot in 2013.
That is gross! In Hungary I pay $10/month for unlimited data plan. Well, it is an enterprise price plan, but still. After 2 GB mobile operator may limit bandwidth to around 1 Mbit/sec. However a friend of mine once had an insane amount of 200 Gb traffic in a month and he did not notice any degradation in speed, it was always well above 2 Mbit, sometimes reaching 5 Mbit/s. Verizon has clearly gone out of its mind.
I wonder why most people cannot spell Stanford University's name correctly.
Death spiral: exactly what I was thinking when I have read the title of this post. Coincidentally 'halal' means 'death' in Hungarian, so accidentally I read 'Iran developing death domestic intranet'
Brilliant! Now the person, who breaks into my apartment and steals my Macbook, no longer has to guess my password. He just takes the charger, and thus all my personal data with himself. What a shitty idea from Apple!
We have already have html5 h.264 video players for more than a year. Why is it news that from now on we can not only play videos (with sound, probably in mp3 format), but even sound without video?
All your (free)base are belong to us.
Seems like Americans must always sue everyone even if they are simply stupid. Would you also sue a knife producing factory just because you did not know you could kill a human with it? Hello! It's your responsibility!
An anonymous reader writes "Texas Instruments' most recent, ARM-based series of graphing calculators, the TI-Nspire line, has long resisted users' efforts to run their own software. (Unlike other TI calculator models, which can be programmed either in BASIC, C, or assembly language, the Nspire only supports an extremely limited form of BASIC.) A bug in the Nspire's OS was recently discovered, however, which can be exploited to execute arbitrary machine code. Now the first version of a tool called Ndless has been released, enabling users, for the first time, to write and run their own C and assembly programs on the device. This opens up exciting new possibilities for these devices, which are extremely powerful compared to TI's other calculator offerings, but (thanks to the built-in software's limitations) have hitherto been largely ignored by the calculator programming community."
Bethesda announced today that Fallout: New Vegas is scheduled for release sometime this fall, and they released a trailer as well.
