You sure made me laugh on that one.
Basically if any conditions change in user's personality of physiology, or computer's configuration, or your routine daily tasks security app would be useless.
If it was used as part of hybrid solution its still useless, why just not get timed user prompt in high-security areas to have user enter it every 30 minutes. That is more secure.
If it was used in some medical sense to identify changes in stress or personality,or mental issue outbursts about to occur by logging your mouse movements, then I'd say great!
Autism is disability. Retardation of learning and brain capacity! No genius was ever born autistic.
Geniuses might have different brain wiring that gives them an advantage over certain ways of thinking and memorization, which also makes the quirky or obsessive compulsive, etc... but very far from Autistic.
Depression is a disease! Also which can only hinder mental capacity or will of a person to be mentally advanced.
The only thing these two sicknesses have to do with "being better" for society is: Survival of fittest... Darwin's law... those with weak DNA don't reproduce and their family DNA dies off... that is only thing I can think of...
Diabetes not genetic? Seriously? What do you call then something that has genetic predisposition? LOL Sure it's not 100% you are going to get it,but more likely than not if your parents had it. So are certain heart diseases, and so are certain type of cancers too... genetically passed on!
Don't be running around misinforming people... and don't be an ass calling serious deadly diseases good for humanity...
It depends on how many nodes DoS is coming from though, as if it's coming from 1,000,000 nodes, it would only need to make let's say 5 requests per second and it would saturate network, and no firewall would effectively stop it. However, if DoS is going from 1000 nodes with 1000 requests per second trying to saturate your network - those types of DoS will easily be dropped by almost any properly configured firewall.
Essentially, I agree that if DoS was as large as what brought Sony to a crawl, then only good planning ahead could negate it. It involves a lot more than a firewall. But if you are running medium sized business, and it's some script kiddies that are coming together to try and bring your site down through DoS, it can easily be negated with a proper firewall.
I've used some other appliances as well that did not have this feature, and it has caused issues under DDOS. You could also setup scripts with iptables under any UNIX flavor you pick to do just that as well.

32GB is also on sale for $249 link (Canadian)
64GB is selling for $399 so in that case "buy any for $299" is a good deal... essentially only for 64GB version is good for this deal.
I saw these deals during Christmas Boxing day on-line sales, and even though I'm in a market for a tablet under $200 that performs reasonably well, I still didn't have any interest in RIM product. It's too proprietary for my taste and it locks me in their very limited market, and it can not be rooted to run android last time I checked...but I might be wrong... I'd pay around $100 to buy it as a kids toy, for them to draw or play YouTube videos as similar products geared towards kids are much more expensive and much more lacking even than RIM's PlayBook.
