I also have cancer, leave those behind in as good a financial position as you can, point out the need to balance geek with old fashioned fun like sports or crafts, tell them not to sweat over the small stuff in life. Talk about you not being around and any plans that you are making, don't hide the fact that are going the die, sorry for being blunt, but that's the way that I have done it. Also, don't rely on technology, put stuff in a book that can be read any one at any future time, your grandkids will want to know about you too. Good luck mate.

Sony makes great electronics, why dump them for some shitty console?
When it launches, kids will be able to explore various 3D scenes, including the streets of Paris and Alcatraz Island in the San Francisco Bay and the solar system. While some scenes like the Golden Gate Bridge include actual images from the area, others like the dinosaur and solar system scene are enhanced with CGI technology to show, for example, what it's like to fly through the galaxy. There's also the option of buying additional reels (four for $15) for other immersive experiences.
Mattel added that the technology is safe for kids ages 7 and up, and shouldn't cause dizziness, as it often does with some virtual reality headsets on the market. It should be noted, however, that after a few minutes of testing I started to feel queasy myself. The company said the View-Master should only be used for a short period of time, and that it is conducting more testing.
Although the View-Master started off as a toy 75 years ago, it's also been used for other purposes throughout history — long before 3D technology was even in the mainstream. For example, Wadleigh said the View-Master was used during World War II to spot enemy aircraft before U.S. soldiers got onto a plane. The medical industry also used it to understand the intricacies of the body before people underwent surgery."

while most people here are blaming the Government, remember that they acted on the advice of others, which have made themselves rich handing out crap advice. BTW, this current advice is still no reason to pig out on fried eggs and greasy bacon.
I thought they were selling a suspension mod for an electric car, tesla coils, silly me.
if enough people were serious about TOR, they would crash it while trying to avoid NSA.
I have to middle-click all day, the stock DELL mouse with raised scroll wheel/middle button does just fine. And you may be able to get a free one from a sys admin somewhere.
Blu-Ray isn't even the majority of discs being sold, so how will another format compete?
yes, it changes as time goes on. I once thought that a 12 month magazine subscription was a risk, now it's make short time goals and be happy when I achieve them. It has changed my life, in a good way, I value friends more than I used to, I am fortunate to have got this far, living in a great country helps. Thanks for your comment, every good wish is treasured.
living through 2015 would be nice.
South Korea is making the copies, they are breaking copyright. I see this as simply poking a bear with a stick, stupid idea.
I have a 60GB iPod with all of my music and podcasts in my bedroom still getting daily use. And there is an original U2 iPod unused in original shrink wraped box in my cupboard.
Airplane mode for the times when you need to read. Set a routine so that you have time for your device and time for your life.
we live in a world without cursive as a default, why teach cursive when most of what we see is printed, unlinked characters?
They are allowed to collect foreign calls, catch up with the law please.
