I read the introduction, and was expecting a Mission: Impossible-style "This computer will self-destruct in 5 seconds" with smoke and everything...
I was a total n00b when studying C++ in college, having only dabbled with BASIC, Pascal, C and ARM assembly before. But C++ surely felt way over the top.
I don't even spend my precious bandwidth on camera recorded movies... But if some MPAA lawyer want's make his job look more important, then kudos for him...
instead of time in prison, he should be forced to watch the shitty movie continuously for 33 months
...in his own crappy cam-rip format.
"Danks was originally told police weren't going to take any action against him, but he unwisely continued to share the movie files after his initial detainment with authorities."
In other words, the cop had decided to let him go with a warning for speeding, and then, while the cop was walking back to his car, he peeled out and gunned the engine, accelerating as hard as he could.
And ran a few red lights as well.
And stole policeman's helmet.
So, her name will be Thora (óra is legit Icelandic name, just like ór)
I'm still waiting for my memristor computer...
I find that very hard to believe.
"Every time I come up with clever analogies, the printer starts spewing out resumes..."
Instead of doing your job, your actions will be tailored to suit the device. You will spend most of your energy and brainpower to look to the algorithm, instead of actually doing your work. We have seen this from ultra-competitive workplaces, e.g. Microsoft, where middle-managers and "top" employees were more concerning of how they were doing on their performance reviews, often sabotaging their coworkers work, than actually working.
Regulation is impending on my rights to make money!
Well, regulation is preventing me seeing Game of Thrones as soon as it is released, so boo-hoo...
I think that the average smartphone is actually much more elegant solution than glasses+watch+cpu (phone). You put it away in your pocket when you are not using it, and just like any previous wearable computer predictions, you only use it to consume data, not much to create it.
And all information is synced around in 'the cloud' already.
Time to create firefox/chrome add-on that types and then deletes all kinds of bullshit...
Not that many people check or even know what it is, but why would any sane person give money to a website who uses domainbyproxy?
