It,s a crappy exaggeration... let,s not innovate too much because someone might be left behind! I'm siding with the Google deployment on this one; they offer a better service for what seems quite a bit less money. This has more chance to bring the internet to poorer people than ever before (although only in towns for now, but it is only beginning).
My girlfriend loves my new found third leg. Thanks, radiation!
I didn't know conglomerates were charities? Why would they lower their prices, unless forced to?
How about encoded smoke signals?
Won't solar panels be so cheap in 5 years that only rich people will burn candles and/or oil?
You need to pack some serious power in your editing skills.
She's not that good if she got caught... and seemingly the only evidence they really got was her admission. This smells like S.P.E.C.T.R.E. had their hands into this. This, thne VISA and Masterdarc. What's next?
Or I'm getting aroused thinking of this.
If you get into an accident and the car stars to burn a little? Do you have Emergency Cheetos in the glove compartment?
Is this a dream, or Total Recall?

MojoKid writes "The PC demo for Codemasters' upcoming DirectX 11 racing title, Dirt 2, has just hit the web and is available for download. Dirt 2 is a highly-anticipated racing sim that also happens to feature leading-edge graphic effects. In addition to a DirectX 9 code path, Dirt 2 also utilizes a number of DirectX 11 features, like hardware-tessellated dynamic water, an animated crowd and dynamic cloth effects, in addition to DirectCompute 11-accelerated high-definition ambient occlusion (HADO), full floating-point high dynamic range (HDR) lighting, and full-screen resolution post processing. Performance-wise, DX11 didn't take its toll as much as you'd expect this early on in its adoption cycle." Bit-tech also took a look at the graphical differences, arriving at this conclusion: "You'd need a seriously keen eye and brown paper envelope full of cash from one of the creators of Dirt 2 to notice any real difference between textures in the two versions of DirectX."
Researchers from the School of Medicine at the University of California have shown that the more germs a child is exposed to, the better their immune system in later life. Their study found that keeping a child's skin too clean impaired the skin's ability to heal itself. From the article: "'These germs are actually good for us,' said Professor Richard Gallo, who led the research. Common bacterial species, known as staphylococci, which can cause inflammation when under the skin, are 'good bacteria' when on the surface, where they can reduce inflammation."
Oh yeah... robot porn
