Of course, either way the question I was answering didn't mention that the IDE had to be free. I think IntelliJ is very reasonably priced (US$200 for individual developers, which would be my case), although I didn't have any reason to buy it myself yet.
All of these work from IntelliJ IDEA in the form of a plugin (AFAIK, I just used PyCharm).
Plus according to their page they have 1083 plugins. Including several for databases.
So I think that covers all you asked for, doesn't it?
Windows XP mode runs a Windows XP VM on VirtualPC. It is not compatibility mode.
It is not officially available on Windows 8, though, and the problem with being unsupported after April is exactly the same as with the original Windows XP, of course (although if you only run specific programs with no net access in it I imagine the security risk is much reduced).
I am aware of 3 or 4 car models already with HUDs, including the Camaro. Honda Civic's in the last few years have a big digital speed display above the steering wheel. It is much easier to read and I am always bothered when driving another car with a regular speedometer...
I have also seen speed HUDs for skiers before with special glasses, aren't there any already for bikes?
For CS, there are a number of programming goals that can be graded automatically, and that is used in several courses - both in Udacity, Coursera and the ML course mentioned before.
You just have to make the student respond to an interface - i.e.: setting an object or variable to the answers or outputting them in a particular way.
For example, in the NLP course the first exercise involved using regular expressions to extract e-mails from web pages. You had some starter source code and a set of pages included with the exercise. You just fill in your code, and run it locally to test it against the local set. Then you submit your code, and the grading software runs it against another set of pages, from where it gets your score for true positives, false positives, and misses (it also used the set you already have, but that had a lower percentage, I think).
It is not perfect (you can't easily measure the cleverness of the answer or the quality of the code, just how well it works), but it is very nearly free.
Given the average quality of the CS courses out there, I think that this system is very acceptable, and bound to get better with time.
I have seen them a few years before that on a Charles Sheffield (?) short story in Analog or Asimov (can't find a reference, sorry).
I remember it being mentioned that the glasses cost as much as car. Nice to see that we have surpassed SF in this way again.
Third, I like how the homework questions for the other two are presented in a normal web form format (whereas the AI class "homeworks" require you to watch a video of the instructor reading the questions) and also allow multiple submissions.
I am taking the two AI classes, and I find that pretty annoying too. It also takes a lot more time than just reading the notes, and even worse - all the time they have to post corrections and clarification in text below the video, whereas they would just edit the question if it was in text format.
In the AI class, both presenters are making video of paper they're writing onto, and constantly waving a pen above the page in the video, making it tricky to find a place the video can be stopped. The videos are embedded YouTube videos, and it takes about 2 seconds for the video to actually stop once the pause button has been pressed, and once it pauses the controls come up and cover up the bottom part of the video.
While I still agree that PDF notes would be much better, any screenshot program that freezes the screen would solve most of your problem. I use Ashampoo Snap, and I still have to wait for the pen to be in a place that doesn't block anything, but it freezes the screen whenever I press the shortcut (then I can clip just what I want).
