The review was reviewed by a crack team of scientists at the University of Halabalaga. The reason for the findings are that Yeti/Bigfoot RNA is made up of horse, bear, porcupine, wolves and dogs, is the Yeti/Bigfoot are a cross between horse, bear, porcupine, wolves and dogs. I'd like to thank the academics and researchers at the University for their cracker jack work, and wish them well in the continued research and pursuit of these elusive creatures.

Slashdot (One Star): Don't eat here! Most of the patrons and staff smelt of B.O., like they had been working for days on some late night software project. None of them had shaved or bathed in days. Food came directly out of a vending machine down the hall, same for the beverage choices. Menu items included Pop Tarts, Doritos, Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper. When I complained about the 3 inch roach in the break room I was told, "That's our mascot, Chubby."

Gamers don't like to Kinect, maybe because when the One was released, they were told they would always have to connect. Then when MS said developers could remove the ability to play used games, the gamers began to connect the dots. MS seems to have connected with their customers and made a connection between things they don't like about the new console and their sales numbers relative to their biggest competitor. Has this connected?

From the article, "After discovering the negative review — which quickly rose to become the "most helpful" negative feedback — Mediabridge threatened to sue the customer, claiming he was waging an "illegal campaign to damage, discredit, defame and libel Mediabridge."" Unfortunately for Mediabridge, the response from Reddit has won the company a considerable backlash. They are now the beneficiary of many more negative reviews."

The eyes are the window to the soul. Perhaps in a job that requires that people show empathy and understanding at all times this is too demanding, but what does it mean when we make an electronic device to simulate emotions we aren't feeling. I am skeptical that people want to use something like this, but I could be wrong. I guess in the 80's we had mirror shades to hide a person's eyes, and other people looking at them could see themselves. Maybe this is just an extension of the technology of emotional distance.
