Holy crap, doesn't any one realize that the high resolution displays don't need shading and dithering to make objects look nicer. That was a necessary evil for low resolution displays to make things look nice and pretty. Tiles and objects on UI's are still the same size, but the resolution has double/tripled/quadrupled in some cases. So we don't need rounded, shaded objects any more. Flat designs look like crap on low resolution displays because we see the jagged edges, so shading was used to soften edges.
As an examiner it was the managers who were screwing over the examiners. The would wait till the last minute to review applications and then force examiners to scramble at the end of the quarter to catch up on work that managers weren't approving. Hell, after I left my manager took credit for my work that he wouldn't approve. That honest work would have netted me 2 promotions and a nice bonus. Using software to monitor examiner work is pure bullshit.
I think future war stories are the best because the fiction and science can be way out there. But I have to believe that humans can evolve past war.
Once we get 8" ebook readers with flexible capacitive touchscreens and very light weight, we won't see any growth. These ebook reader innovation is stagnant so the ebook market is stagnant. Too much focus on Android tablets and Ipad development vs. eink tech.
Innovation is moving faster than the laws. Just as in Trademark, one should have to prove actual use of patented material in the course of ordinary trade.
You can register it to ip.com as prior art. Who may not want to patent something, but don't want their competitors to get a patent on it so they submit it anonymously to ip.com
This is very cool and rather unique solution, but there is considerable lag between the input and the registration of the input. I don't see it being much useful beyond pause/play video or music or to wake up a computer from sleep. That being said, I love the spelling mistake in the powerpoint in the youtube video.
The only advantage this device has over other much much much cheaper variants is bluetooth low energy capabilities. Its also geared towards non-techies, so essentially not the slashdot crowd.
Unlock the swathe of dark fiber running through this country that telecommunications companies laid with our tax dollars and regulate broadband internet under the “rate of return” model.
He is self employed now, but after he was released from prison and was allowed to use a computer again he became a consultant. I don't think he was self employed at the time, but even if he was, as a consultant you get hired for your services.
Come most you should remember the "Free Kevin Mitnick" campaign. He is the original hacker/cracker turned "consultant".
I don't remember the details, but this device came out a few years ago. Only difference between MircoSD and SD are a few ground pins, right? The margi probably used a ucontroller for the signal generation, now that devices are more powerful, the software implementation is now plausible.
Seriously? First my real name is actually embedded in there (Coward). Second, i've had that handle since the mid 90's. Third, I had an intimate relationship with an employee of one of those organizations. And they admitted not just PCI style intrusions. They described that most Chinese electronics, e.g. mp3 players, dvd-rom drives, thumb drives, all have some soft of malicious code.
Chins is absolutely doing this and the DoD, NSA, and CIA are aware of the activity. Honestly, they don't care about regular consumers, but govt. officials and employees are banned from having Chinese manufacture equipment during official business/work.
Look, I work in medical imaging, which includes X-ray imaging. I don't care what they say, the backscatter radiation imaging they are using is dangerous. Mark my words, if the tech become ubiquitous in airports, those with the most frequent fliers miles will have a greater incidence of tumorous growths.
