The video that Verizon released shows the guy using multi-touch to zoom in on a web page. here: http://verizonwireless.mediaseed.tv/Story.aspx?story=37115
I could see someone who will do testing and be the point person for the money. We need someone to do penetration testing with a white hat on.
We of course it exists in that form, but it is rarely used by people not editing the page. The reporters that picked up that quote didn't use it!
I've been thinking about creating a Firefox plugin that will do this, using the diff pages under history to do this. Remix the page live, as well as the slider style that Slashdot uses.
Look for it in a month or two.
This is something I've wanted since Wikipedia became big. I'd like to have a slider bar that allows me to highlight (say, in red) everything that's been changed within the last 7 days. And everything (say, in yellow) everything that's been changed within the last month.
That way, when I'm looking at an article on Albert Einstein I'll know when there is something strangely recent put in there. Also, when I'm looking at the swine flu article, I'll be able to set the slider bars for 12 hours/3 days and see what's new.
Yes, yes, it'll be a few more database hits, but think if everything you could do with this. And not just as a viewer, but as an editor.
Now, someone with way more time on their hands than me, please Make It So.
Yeah! And we should make sure they get out of the Water business, since both Coke _AND_ Pepsi have bottled water now, right?! I mean, I can't wait until I can use the new Coke Shower or the Pepsi toilet!
And man, how cool would it be if I could drive on GM Roads! I'm sure they'd be making a profit if they had their own roads. If only it wasn't for that nasty government making all of their roads public. I mean, look at what the auto industry did for the wonderful Public Transit system was have in the U.S. now! Wow! I mean, who wouldn't want to wait for the once and hour bus, pay over two dollars a trip, and have a 14 minute trip take almost an hour!
We need an IP infrastructure to be in public hands, and we need it ten years ago.
Why not charge break even pricing? What's wrong with just living and not making "extra" money?
Include your costs, your generous salary, and a small "rainy day" fund, and charge customers for that. Isn't that what they do for water and sewers?
This would only be true of 1 out of 1000 random people are terrorist who use phones as a primary communication device. Do you really think that is true? Do you see 53 idiot terrorists as your local sporting event?
This is just a gross violation of rights.
Don't forget that Lot thru his virgin daughters to be raped to protect a few "angels" he just met that day, and Abraham told two different kings that his wife was just his sister and yeah, go right ahead and bed her.
So, of course these tax exempt multi-billion dollar memetic empires need protection in law from common sense.
Imagine a Beowulf cluster of VM's on one machine! Oh, wait...

What I like about the article (apart from them obviously keeping their comms room clean with a robotic Roomba vacuum cleaner complete with wireless webcam) is the way they use their PC's processing power at night. Does anyone else know any more technical information about their system architecture?"
