If this has a face recognition system app built into it. See your wife, it brings up anniversaries, birthdays etc.. See a congressman, it brings up a list of all the corporations/organizations that fund him and a list of his voting record. See a random stranger, bring up criminal records if any, etc..
Thanks for all the stories, you will be missed.
The reason NASA's budget is cannot be cut is Congress. Any time NASA wants to shut down obsolete projects or consolidate projects Congress steps in to stop them. NASA early on spread itself into as many Congressional districts as possible to gain the most political pull, now it has come back to bite them in a major way.
How about teach the Indian cosmology, Chinese creation, African tribal belief's in cosmology? Do they have to teach all of that now too?
Lawmakers are not scientists, do not understand it and have no idea what science is. These are the same people who would legislate PI. Then again the Republican party has proved throughout the last election that they have their own idea of truth or facts that have no bearing reality.
What was your funniest encounter with the supernatural believer/perpetrator?
I can not see such a sensor being too useful. A built in carbon monoxide detector would be of more use to me.
I would leave it up to the insurance companies, let the insurance companies charge extra or not pay for treatment of people who get sick from diseases they should have been vaccinated for.
Yes, they should put the GM label on every food we eat that has been genetically modified from its original stock. Just label 100% of every produce in the super market as GM'ed since that is the case. Hmm, what about the GM'ed drugs that we are all taking now do we label those too?
Now here is something for Anonymous to take up. A man being executed as there is no "Freedom of Speech" in that area of the world.
I can see them doing this and then finding out that their db is totally corrupt due to multiple data disk losses. Looking for their last backup tape to find them missing or that someone has spilled coffee all over them etc..
She has had a full life doing what she loved. I loved her work, it is a legacy that will live on. The world is a sadder place without her. Thank you for the stories.
I think I once read a science fiction novel about a character that basically walked around with his life uploaded to the internet. Given the advent of bloggers and low cost high bandwidth wireless communications devices this will be a reality in a few years. We may soon have people who wear internet enabled jewelry that constantly uploaded their lives up to the net. Big brother lives! Except this time instead of just the government monitoring the citizens you would also have citizens monitoring the government.
What about Harold Camping and his failed prediction of the rapture? Are they going to sue for that? Predicting earthquakes is still an infant science. What is next? How about suing astronomers for not predicting the next extinction level event because of a GRB or Asteroid impact? Or suing Oceanographers for the rising tides or depleted fish stocks?
Maybe some scientist should have told Reagan it was for generating anti-matter for anti-matter weapons and it would have been built.
