yea but unfortunately all of the hookerdoids look like jude law
Only a Sith deals in absolutes!
Isn't the term "only" itself an absolute?
as i understand it the original idea was to have the humans act like processing units but that was thought to be to confusing for the masses so they changed it to people as batteries. I think this make more since, as the human brain is a massively more powerful than any of our current computers is thought to be able to store anywhere frome 1Tb to 2.5 Pb, is much smaller, produce very little in the way of waste heat and requires very little power to run. i mean really why would you use people as batteries we produce very little in the way of electricity and heat and it take much more energy to maintain a human then they would ever generate as a power source.
This isn't really true, since Hangouts are built on open web protocols with support in Firefox and Chrome (and presumably Safari and IE once they catch up). There's no need for any IM-specific protocol "lockin" when you have general-purpose communication protocols available on the open web. XMPP is old.

i would buy a tazer/sword-cane when is that going to be released?
They did in fact create a system that puts out more instantaneous energy per unit weight, but that is not the improvement that super capacitors need. They have improved gravimetric power density. The two measures that need improvement to make super capacitors more useful are gravimetric energy density (how much energy can it store in a given weight), and volumetric energy density. How much energy can it store in a given volume. Without significant improvements in those two areas, super capacitors cannot make significant inroads against batteries.
It should also be noted that super capacitors already have better power density than chemical batteries by a wide margin, and are more than sufficient to replace I.C. engines and gasoline in that respect.
Yes but do they have the correct price to manufacture to beat internal combustion; and is it scalable; how much will it cost to shove out a 100 million super capacitor powered cars; do we currently have the supply of materials needed to supply the automotive industry; How much will the patent licensing cost? The patents of internal combustion have expired decades ago. Then you have the cost of building a power distribution infrastructure, charging stations, power transportation (improvement to the power grid) massively increase the power generation capacity of country (with internal combustion each vehicle is a self contained generator now the power for all of those vehicles will have to be made somewhere so now you will either have to build more dams, nuclear, or fossil fuel, as renewable does not have the energy output needed without taking up massive amounts of land. (Not everywhere has the enough consistent wind for wind-power or sun for needed energy level of the millions of cars in use so we would have to fill all of the areas that do and people are already complaining about windmills "ruining their view" and organizing NIMBY groups same as they did with nuclear.)) Then you have to convince all of the vehicle manufacturers to use they same power port - think cellphones where we have dozens of chargers because no one wants to use the same one for two devices. gasoline has a relatively low cost per joule easily established infrastructure very few patent and ip concerns and dozens of other reasons it sadly won't go anywhere anytime soon.
they can have half my gold from killing goblins as long as i dont have to share the rest of the loot.
They can't just dump Metro - there's a complete ecosystem of apps dependent on it. It's very small, but it's not like they can abandon it. That would be like Apple just discontinuing the entire iOS line and saying "Sorry, your iDevices are useless."
It is far more likely than you think, they have already killed zune, they killed all of those windows phone 7's saying to their customers "yeah our bad you won't be able to update the phone you just bought sucks to be you." Oh and then there was the playforsure debacle. They pushed silverlight and have now nearly abandoned development of it. So Microsoft could throw framework/interface formally known as metro to the wolves on a whim at anytime they want and it would just be par for the course.
I'd still wait for Windows 8.11 for workgroups. Maybe they'll add a proper command line and support x forwarding natively.
Microsoft will add native x forwarding to windows shortly after the devil^W^W Balmer ice skates to work

I regularly have that 100+ open when i go through my rss feeds i will pick the articles i want to read in Thunderbird delete the rest then switch over to my browser and read all of the articles. as it is right now though i only have two open slashdot and google voice as a pin'ed tab
theres a reason i try to avoid eating pork, i mean i have seen people farm pigs. Some of my friends have said well have you ever seen the way cows live, yes i have i lived for a number of years across the road from a herd of cows being grown for meat they are much cleaner.
