Thank you! Criminal behavior != mysogyny.
I got out of my parent's country as well - go back to your room, junior.
And, yes - what he did was bad enough for me to declare him a pile of feces.
The article goes on and on about "workaholism" fueling the need for drugs. My ass - the key story referenced is the one about Hayes getting offed by a hooker injecting a heroin overdose on his yacht. I don't feel a lot of workaholism in that story - ridiculously overpaid unscrupulous douchebag with too much time and money that has saddened and humiliated his family managed to have what looks like plenty of leisure time.
Oh, and this shit is not new at all - been happening in this industry for decades. more noticeable now that a Googler has publicly disgraced himself.
I feel for his family - what a piece of shit.
I had an idea like this to use an instrumentation amp to detect brain waves - when the eyes are closed you get a lot of low freq alpha waves so you can tell if someone is dozing off. I guess this is less intrusive since it's embedded in the seat.
Or not if you were referring to the OP and not me
Typical AC - misinterpret what's there and add nothing.
Eventually your priority shifts from learning new things to actually utilizing your knowledge to do and make things.
Coming up with 20 good ways to build a bridge is not as productive as coming up with one good way and doing it.
Oh, and check your incredible arrogance at the door - normal people are doing much more complex things than coding, and with today's dev tools the entry barrier is significantly lower (and initial learning curve shallower) than it was 20-30 years ago. You are not "special" because you "get" algorithms.
It seems that "regular people" are those that have more than one facet to their life. I wonder if brain surgeons or mechanical engineers ever think like this.
And of course the best answer is to dumb down the subject matter rather than educate the masses...
Watch that stock graph trend down in a few months when they announce the actual solution. Anything they could do that would prevent workaround (via refils, spoofing, etc.) without adding prohibitive cost to the pods and/or impacting the user experience. Seriously - punishing people who buy their unremarkable coffee makers like this - if their business model (sell machine cheap and consumable materials dear) they can go suck it. It's not like he printer market where there are few alternatives - they have just found a way to make coffee makers as annoying as printers.
I can imagine a scene from Office Space 2 where they take the coffee maker out back for some batting practice.
If you really want to go to coffee heaven, start roasting your own beans. Takes 5-10 mins and makes a world of difference. Plus green beans cost a fraction of roasted.
Wow - people have more faith in Google than I thought.
I thought this was a joke story at first. I interpreted it as "mortality is the number one cause of death in the world".
At least put some sort of qualifications in place lest we preserve a planet full of douchebags.
Hey, my Faberge eggs just arrived via drone....crap.
For package delivery you would likely be flying in urban areas that have restrictions on unmanned aircraft, autonomous or not. I believe in the US you need at least one operator/spotter with line-of-sight (with their own eyes, not a camera) to the aircraft - not easy in urban areas unless you are in a helicopter yourself.
Nevertheless, I am sure this will happen in a few years, but it will be messy.
Sounds more like a drone notifier than a drone shield.
Sounds like something that was mildly hot in Japan 6 years ago:
And yet this still makes the front page of Slashdot - with a spin-laden misleading title.
MojoKid - you are an ass, and so is the moderator.
I would check out used/cheap PNDs. You get a minimal enclosure with enough room for a pcb and battery (you might even reuse the battery and maybe the charging circuit if possible). I bet you can find some older ones with 3-or-so inch resistive screens for under 40 bucks - probably 10 at a garage sale. As long as the enclosue, screen and battery are ok (you may not even want the battery) it should be a safe bet.
Pawn shops (ahem) tend to have lots of these as well.
Granted you are just hoping you can gracefully separate the components you want from the PND guts - it might be worth checking to see which PNDs have some open source projects around them - the component specs are probably known and you can find the datasheet - maybe even in English
