Having anything placed under my skull in direct contact with my brain sounds a little invasive to me.
Honestly, I really love the Starts With a Bang blog, and have been reading it for years.
But I do have to wonder why every single post is announced on
We already have RSS, we subscribe, we know about it. By the time
In communist North Korea, darkness finds you!
Drop your weapons. You have 20 seconds to comply.
There's nothing in that list (with the possible exception of "being forced to use a specific technology") that wouldn't apply to just about any worker.
...until the total length of video on YouTube is greater than the age of the universe?
I thought we were post-PC! Where are the tablets that are supposedly taking over the world?
Does anyone get the feeling that if Apple was rumoured to be working on a shoe phone, Microsoft would immediately start doing the same?
I'm more interested in how many people are using PCs - I couldn't really care less how many new PCs are sold.
PCs last longer than they used to. Single-threaded performance isn't increasing anymore and multiple threads aren't being used that much, meaning performance gains are no longer a major reason for upgrades.
Also, a lot of what would have been laptop sales are now tablet sales.
Are you sure that's the right term? Somehow I doubt it's actually a recording
Yahoo has mobile applications? o.O
Moonlight is just reflected sunlight, you just need more of it to make the colours come out.

If there's a domesticated species taking advantage of humans my money's definitely on cats rather than dogs.
It depends what you do and how you work I guess. For me, two monitors is ideal - IDE maximized on one, and help file / reference emails / IRC windows etc on the other.
Remember though that current 30" monitors have the same horizontal res (2560) as the 27s - only the vertical res is (slightly) higher.
Dell U2711 or similar. 2560x1440 for great number of pixels, and if you want to use a higher DPI you still get a decent amount of information on screen.
I've tried 30" monitors and they were just too big, but for me 2x27" is perfect.
