Apples & Oranges comparison.
You're forgetting Head Mounted Displays have been tried over and over again, and failed miserably each time to gain critical mass.
Video Games are fundamentally (more) accessible. You don't need some stupid set of bulky goggles to play them.

According to _whose_ standards? Yours?
Wake me up when the rest of society stops watching 2 men beating/boxing/fighting the living shit out of each other, because there are far bigger problems to worry about then someone having fun asking nonsense questions to a machine to see what the data set is.
/sarcasm Because that worked for Rosa Parks.
Oh wait, there is a time and place for civil disobedience; namely when the laws are fucking stupid.
Get off your high horse. What a person tells Siri in the privacy of their home is none of your business. No one is getting injured here.
I think it's a very reasonable thing to do in order to discourage behavior that is universally looked upon as bad. Yes, being abusive to software does no harm to the software, but if you can have your chatbot, or whatever you want to classify Cortana as in this scenario, act in a way that does not fuel this behavior (which let's face it would only be done by idiots), without compromising the functionality of the tool, then I support Microsoft's efforts.
Our communication with each other is coarsening at a fast enough rate as it is.
/sarcasm Don't you know? Releasing more often magically fixes all the (old) bugs!
Annnd humanity reaches a new low for stupidity.
But let's keep anthropomorphizing electronics because
What a dumb-ass.
As I posted below, it seems pretty obvious you would use fuel cells instead of batteries for an electric aircraft... from your energy density link compressed hydrogen has an even better energy density (142 MJ/kg) than jet fuel (46 MJ/kg)!
The cost of hydrogen production is estimated to become close to gasoline production over the next decade or so, but there is a huge pollution benefit to using fuel cells which could drive adoption quicker.
The currently very low cost of oil is probably the main thing that would keep airplanes from going electric soon.
They want an animated Real Doll, preferably something that maintains a human body temperature.
There is a scratch for that itch already:
When Tyger asked her Harmony if she would like to have sex, she was programmed to reply 'I am very anxious to have sex but I cannot comply till I have been registered to an owner'
An electric airplane sounds like an interesting idea, especially for short hop flights...
It also seems like it would be a nice case for fuel cells because you have a much more limited need for fueling stations (basically just airports) and it would be easier to store enough energy for a moderately long flight.
Thanks, I kind of figured the AC didn't know what he was talking about. I use a mixture of command line and SourceTree with BitBucket (and GitHub) and have really not noticed much of a difference, though generally I'm on broadband or tethered (which are both pretty fast compared to dialup).
It is difficult to soar with the eagles when you work with turkeys.
