Uh, wouldn't you want to solve the easier problem first? World health is going to be a hell of a lot easier to work at then teaching the world grammar.
Isn't a bean counter pretty much exactly the type of person you want doing your taxes?
Women are naturally better at multitasking though. It's true I saw it on Mythbusters!
I think there were some legitimate gripes about FCPX at launch. Things like no XML support, no support for tape media, and no backwards compatibility with older projects. Third parties had to release applications solve most of these problems and they weren't available for quite some time.
However, I agree that people bitching about how FCPX is just iMovie on steriods because of the new UI probably are just overly resistant to change. From the little I've seen it has some very nice features and should make big mistakes harder to do as well as managing media significantly easier.
Maybe flailing your limbs around is asking too much. However, if we're lucky just the acting of breathing itself will produce enough of a change to detect a person?

You got some Reddit love awhile back so quit your bitching
Just say enhance a few more times....
Would be pretty cool to have a CCD/CMOS sensor that captured the entire spectrum and you could just add filters to the lens (or in post) select the range you wanted to view. I'd imagine you could produce some pretty interesting images.
Dude, did you not read the article?! It's 5D!!!
Google pays people to go hiking in remote areas of the globe? sign me up!
The onboard microphones on DSLRs pretty god awful. You probably shouldn't use them anyway and would be wise to invest in separate audio recorder/mixer. Even if the microphone was decent you still lack decent gain control, it's usually stored in a lossy codec, and most of the other components are lower quality and introduce lots of additional noise to your recording. It's just not capable of recording good audio.
I'm not saving they should but the reality is there is very little in this world you can truly keep private especially when you interact with other people.
Personally, I believe an employer should be able to not hire or fire you for any reason even if it's something as petty and stupid as if you're a certain race. Of course in the real world if they make that why public they could be in for a world of hurt legally. Personally, I'd rather a company go out of business because nobody wants to buy his product/services because it's owned by a racist than have our legal system allow him to be sued for it but that's just me.
So, while I believe an employer has the right to hire you because there are pictures of you on the net smoking weed I personally think a company that would do that is not worth working for. I don't believe there is any way we can prevent a company from doing this and attempting to do so is just as ignorant as their hiring practices. My point is the more cases of it happening the more likely society as a whole will make a push to stop the practice. It might be just stigmatism of marijuana changing (which it obviously have) or it might be just knowing that company X doesn't hire people who smoke it. Talent won't apply there and people who have same opinions will stop doing business with that company.
However, trying to regulate how a company hires/fires feels like it can be the exact same invasion of privacy.
You could argue that by having more people not afraid to hide who they are outside of work can actually help. Sure, the first people to put themselves out there will be labeled stupid and have doors closed because of it and perhaps even legal action. However, they're making it more common place. Maybe public opinion and government policy will be changed for the better because of it.
To be openly gay just 20 years ago was pretty good way to make your life very difficult. You probably couldn't find a job or hold public office. You might even get yourself beaten or killed for it.Yet, people still did it because that is who they were and they were standing up for their rights.
Personally, I'm going to be myself and that involves sometimes being silly and doing silly things on my own time. If I have to hide it to get a job I don't want to work for that company anyway. Having to censor myself is not worth it.
It did seem like he got the machine's attention by saying "Xbox" and then the command. However, it seemed like there was some sort of window in place where it just assumed when it detected a possible command you were talking to it. Felt very Star Trekish in that the computer just knew when you were giving it commands vs just talking. I'm pretty skeptical of voice commands but voice recognition has gotten pretty damn accurate in the last few years so who knows...
