Definitely nothing much going on over there.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
If the problem is sensationalism in the media, then why did they write this article? I can 3D print a mechanical replacement for my hand, I can build an autonomous drone for under a grand, and when I walk into my apartment my lights come on automatically and some nice music starts.
If we haven't invented anything in a while I would have been doing all that stuff ten years ago.

I hope Apple does deny it and I hope we get a anti-competitive lawsuit like the one for IE and Windows. It's 2012, and iOS should let you install apps from any source, not just the Apple controlled app store.
If this worked other civilizations would have used it and every once in a while we'd see a painted asteroid go flying by. Right? RIGHT GUYS!?
I just got some of those new Hue lights from Philips and have to say they're pretty awesome. It would be rad to fill up an entire house with them.
Google is a tool that 50 years ago nations would have gone to war to have access to. And it's freely available to every human on the planet. Google/the internet in general is the thing mankind has created with the most potential to bring peace to the world. We can address the side-effects as we go.
