Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Qwerty is just like the English measurement system. It's horrible, but too deeply set (at least in the US) into society to change easily. I learned the Dvorak layout a while back, and like it waaayyy better than Qwerty. There's not nearly as much strain, and practically everything you type is on the home row. Because most computers are still configured to use Qwerty, I do maintain that layout; it's pretty easy to go from one to the other after some practice. Rarely have I encountered compatibility problems: even Ctrl+Z and Ctrl+S are a habbit now.
P.S. vim is better on non-qwerty layouts than emacs
I think you mean "And they're gone"

...whatever that is...
But back to the version number issue - quick, how many people know what version number Chrome is up to off the top of their head? Anyone?
From the abstract:
Solar cells and wireless coils provide options for power supply.
If you have to have a bulky power source, it's hardly very practical. Don't misunderstand though, I think it's pretty cool. Are the solar cells actually the circuit? Would it be possible to get enough voltage from the skin?
I wonder what kind of microphone they used and how they attached it to the circuit. And how did they monitor heart-rate?
