several months now. The LG wireless charger pad works fine with the Nexus 7.
I got problems with this kind of research. This is really treading on ethical thin ice.
Now it could be possible to control an Avatar ? I really don't like the way this is going. We are losing our privacy. Now in a few generations even our thoughts won't be private ? I am all for learning how to build bionic limbs and controlling them... but mind an actual link from one brain to another individuals brain or cortex ? NO THANKS.
I love to drive. I like to push the clutch, get into gear rev the accelerator and let out the clutch. I love to drive. I don't answer my cell when I'm driving, even though my wrangler has u-connect. I rather listen to my rock/blues collection and drive What I like about driving a Wrangler it's one of the only vehicles out that does not feel like you are driving by wire.
This is all FUD. Everyone knows that windows does not scale well. I get to play with the IBM Power7 Platform and Linux at work. I have got to say my favorite platform is still the IBM Power Platform scales extremely well. I've got 20 HMCs, 196 frames, and around 800 LPARS and VIO servers. LPAR2RRD rules!

Have you ever used a SDR to read the transaction between a fob and a volkwagen ? It's very interesting. Also it's not encrypted. I don't know why.
I'm with Linus on this one. Be yourself... There are too many companies and individuals that think they are great coders and they are not. And when you are contributing to the kernel writing piss poor code you deserve to be put in your place. Standards need to be achieved. They need to know if they attempt to contribute buggy code then they will get ridiculed. Why ???? Maybe they will do more QA before they attempt to upload. Or.. if you are a conspiracy theorist like me... you are an employee from Microsoft or Wind River purposely attempting to cripple the Linux Kernel.
Hopefully market demand will render Intel's attempt at controlling the motherboard market to fail.
Ahh.. Now we have to vote between a Marxist or a Moron. Maybe we should all write in Ron Paul! I don't like the way the Republican Party screwed him. RI and Virginia delegates were blocked from voting in the nomination process. Their buses were actually blocked from parking. The delegates should of got out, walked, and storm the convention to cast their vote. I hope there's a grass roots campaign to write someone in. I don't like Obama... he created an "Obamanation of our great nation". I can't vote for Romney either. I would vote for Ron Paul, he's for a flat income tax. I am all for that. Everyone should pay the same percentage no matter how much you make. That's fair.
I live in a Massachusetts suburb near a town beach yet far enough away from the water that it doesn't force me to buy flood insurance. This has helped my home keep it's value.
I second the North East. I have headhunters calling me every day. IT R&D is ramping up big time. I'm content with my 24 mile commute. I get to drive my Wrangler Sport to work. No need for a fuel sipping commuter vehicle. I live @65 miles south of Boston in a rural community.
I doubt they are running a remote firmware update. I bet they are just uploading python scripts, and if it fails, no worries Curiosity will receive a new program update. Hopefully they are blowing up media hype. I wish NASA would be more scientific when talking to the public. we are not all idiots, just 75% of the population won't understand it. It's a shame really. Maybe the rest of the public can learn more if they are not talked down to.
One year ago I dumped my facebook account. I deleted all my posts, all my photos, all my friends, renamed my name to a fictitious name, and closed the account. The problem is when you close the account it's still there so that's why I went through the hassle of deleting everything. WHY? I'll tell you why. I've been married to my wife for 26 years. She's awesome, she's my best friend too. A Girlfriend I had before I met my wife found me on facebook, next thing you know an old circle of friends found me. My youngest son's gf was also posting questions to her friends, I was also a friend. The post said "should I pierce my nose" ? Me being the way I am said "hell no, you have a cute little nose. a piercing would make you look like a skank."... well.. maybe skank means more than it did in the 80s. My youngest son and his gf was upset with me so I said you know what ? Enough of this crap. I was using fb to share photos of 4 wheeling with my Jeep and stuff, I don't care to know what everyone is up to. And if my sweet wife read what the old gf posted out of context, she would get upset. So I deleted everything. It's been a year now and no more fb notifications! I prefer to keep it that way. My son's gf never got her nose pierced, in the end she agreed that her nose is too cute. And it turned out her dad said something similar to what I said. She's still with my son. I feel relieved that the old GF can't find me. I never posted my true street address, only the region I live in, that is all.
We should "minimize" our footprint on the internet if we really care about this. I deleted all my FB friends, pictures, and posts. I then changed my fb name to a fictitious one. I think we should all do it. Sure I have an account on a Jeep forum, linked in (it's out of data because my present employer monitors activity of employees there), slashdot, diydrones, and that's it. Everything else just has my ip as a footprint. I'm not doing anything wrong. I'm just tired of big brother. I'm worried about what society is going to be like 20 years from now. I hope my kids and grandkids still have their freedom.
