So true. Just wait until the agency comes back with "we can't use our technology for frivolous legal matters".
The implied ending to "Yes we can" is "do whatever the hell we want"
Well I'm a little disappointed in the narrow-minded responses of "just pull the plug". Regardless, I understand its just a TV show, House did an episode with a patient in locked in syndrome. Episode 5x19 in that they used a brain computer interface, that looks like it took a lot of effort for little return. If it was me I would start asking the doctors to do deep brain stimulation or ECT, in hopes that electricity can help open up some of the damaged passageways. There is a good tech talk about how ECT is used here. Realistically her brain is probably going to have to learn to re-wire and understand how it needs to communicate with the rest of the body again.
Best of luck!
Best of luck!
They haven't been doing that all along anyway?
Why is there so much about computers,
"There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home." Ken Olsen, co-founder of Digital Equipment Corporation, 1977
theodp (442580) writes "GeekWire reports that a Microsoft researcher's 1991 video could torpedo Apple's key 'slide to unlock' patent, one of 5 patents that the iPhone maker cited in its demand for $40 per Samsung phone. Confronted with what appears to be damning video evidence of prior art that pre-dates its 'invention' by more than a decade, Apple has reportedly argued that the sliding on/off switch demoed by Catherine Plaisant is materially different than the slide to unlock switch that its 7 inventors came up with. Apple's patent has already been deemed invalid in Europe because of similar functionality present in the Swedish Neonode N1M." The toggle widgets demoed in the video (attached below) support sliding across the toggle to make it more difficult to swap state (preventing accidental toggling). The video itself is worth a watch — it's interesting to see modern UIs adopting some of the idioms that testing in the early 90s showed were awful (e.g. Gtk+ 3's state toggles).
Need is a rather subjective term.
Really good point, "well my fingerprint is compromised, time to have this one burned off"
Do you have any personal tricks or methods to learning new things, and what are the benefits/shortfalls or situations where it didn't work?
will you continue to be friends if he hates it, you duty as a grind is to dispense advice (if requested or appropriate). and empower the decisions he does make, it is NOT your duty to make sure he makes the decision you like.
and it would quickly turn out that only the rich would be able to afford it while the poor die at the same rate, how does this improve society?
It only effected a small handful of people unlucky enough to have windows phones.
See, they told us about it! Surely we can trust them. Don't worry next month we'll get some new tidbit after this calms down, as they "turn up the heat a little more".
Because publicly traded companies breed and promote people who stay within the box, and apply the model that the investors, accountants, and whoever else are OK with. Bureaucracy and politics are self perpetuating cycles that assimilate good ideas to meet their wold view.
That's hard core millitary logic right there. "lets not fix the real problem, lets just fire people who could point them out"
