"The possibilities of this CPU and generator are... Fascinating. For instance, users players (see, lines are already blurring) can exchange programs, so you can expect a lively scene of people exchanging programs. There's a nefarious side to this as well - Notch will not stop anyone from making viruses, so even computer security becomes an element of play. A virus could, for instance, disable a ship's weaponry or shields. " From: http://www.osnews.com/story/25765/Notch_unveils_0x10c_space_sim_with_custom_virtual_processors

+ - South Korea deploys killer robot in DMZ->

shikaisi writes: Not content with just killing people in computer games, South Korea has gone one better and is deploying remotely controlled sentry robots on the border with the north. According to the article "If the command centre operator cannot identify possible intruders through the robot's audio or video communications system, the operator can order it to fire its gun or 40mm automatic grenade launcher." I hope that word "cannot" instead of "can" is a journalistic error and not a shoot-to-kill policy.

There's no indication that any of this is making anyone substantially stupider.

hang around anyone between the age of 12 and 16 and tell me they're not dumb as bricks speaking in chat acronyms rather than expending the exact same number of syllables on the actual words or actually expressing emotions.

i hate individuals who refuse to use capitalization appropriately in sentences as well. how uncivilized.

When all else fails, read the instructions.
