So is it still the iPhone, or eyePhone now?

there, fixed that for you
Acutally it's a law in china that they are allowed to pull students from school and put them to work in the factory until production levels are met for their launch date. They get away with it by stating it's some sort of work co-op program, even though the hours are brutal just as the work conditions. That's also why their suicide levels are higher. Google the conditions on apple factories in China and you will find ample articles on it
the child slave labour you have china enforce whenever you release a new product, until your production demands are met? Let me know when you stop doing that shit.
technically it's called a cartridge, but round has become more acceptable over the years.
I'm just curious how the electronics would handle the excessive heat over the course of time.
I think this person might just want to drink the cool-aid if he isn't already!
"Microsoft on Tuesday mass emailed its 100 million+ Messenger users to let them know that the service is officially being retired on March 15, 2013
I've never used messenger, never signed up for it, never even been to the registration page, and I still got an email notice telling me that I need to switch to skype. I think they just emailed everyone who has ever used hotmail, or any variation since it's creation.
Thats the whole story? I was sort of expecting more. Well, to the final question of that rather short article. It was most likely the area where they kept their spent fuel bundles. I know in some nuclear power plants, the spent fuel bundles have to be kept in a pool of water for a number of years until their half life is met, and they can be transfered to a dry storage facility. Normally the "pool" is not guarded or locked due to personel constantly going in and out, but there is radiation checks that are done upon exiting the area, also you wear a device for monitoring your radiation dose.
As for the blue glow, you can read all about it on wiki
I could see this being a good thing, and a bad thing. If online accounts are using hardware to determine the user account, whats to stop someone from just "borrowing" your hardware and connecting to your account? Sure, they could still have user names passwords and such as backup, but then what would be the point of doing the hardware authenication? Plus how much of a pain in the ass would it be to upgrade your computer and notify the online account to expect changes in your hardware for the next time you login?
Bah, i think i'm rambling now... need coffee... or beer... beer sounds better
Ha! "HER medium" must of been one of those certified psychics!
I can't wait to see what SGDarkKnight does when he finds out what I'm posting on slashdot with his account!
On the main website they don't really mention anything about interaction, but in the deviceguru link they state it outright that you "have the freedom to move and interact with people as if you were there". Isn't this just a glorified version of a mobile chat device. I remember the episode of TBBT where Sheldon built one similar, but it did have the "hands" so to speak which I consider "interaction" and not just "chatting" which is what this one appears to be.
Don't get me wrong, I love a spicy dish, as long as it has flavor. Can someone here who likes things "hot" explain this to me? Really, whats the point of eating something that will make you sweat like a pig, and have no taste or flavor to it?
I had a friend take me to a pub once, because they had a special deal, where if you ate 4 chicken wings in thier "hot sauce", then the meal was free, your picture taken and put on a wall. I ate one, and wanted to throw up. Yes, I was sweating like a pig, but the sauce they used had a god awful after taste. Now, one of my pubs back home made a special blend of hot sauce for their wings (this wasn't on the menu). I would have to say, that sauce was hotter than the previous mentioned one, but the flavor was the best I've ever had. I could only manage to eat 5 wings, but I wanted more, just couldn't take it the heat.
That combination of flavor and heat, I have not found again since moving away from home. I can't understand how anyone would eat anything that is hot for the sake of being hot, all the while forgetting about flavor.
