I saw the disease for what it was, and while having a low ICQ account number - I'm proud to not have been a facebook or myspace nitwit.

All you bottom feeders of facebook and myspace finding the intraweb need to be shot. And the folks that killed Napster - they need to be shot.

And get the hell off of my lawn.

Altho, my lawn is presently muddy. and most folks will wait for warmer weather to see the lawn - but most likely won't go past the thorn bushes I planted to deter people from the lawn.

So I'll just shake my fist.

I thought we'd have flying cars before we'd lose the chance to drive.

All kidding aside, 40 years from now we'll still be driving our own cars because programmers won't be able to help a car decide if it is allowed to avoid a collision that will kill a driver by swerving onto a sidewalk and killing two pedestrians.

At least you're bringing a gun to a gun fight - but remember, he's got the edge, you're too busy with the smartphone. By the time you drop it and reach he can shoot in self defense.

I think a better option would be to not collide with him in the first place. That way you won't get shot.

by the_Bionic_lemming (#48868583) Attached to: What Will Google Glass 2.0 Need To Actually Succeed?

I have to wear glasses and would rather not, gas perms and other contacts that I've tried suck - so why would anyone need to wear glasses when they don't need to, or invest in a pair that still has to be upgraded to prescription lenses?

This whole "glass" thing reminds of ten years ago when the rage was three d gaming in Unreal Tournament - a thing of the future (just like flying cars for everyone).

Comment: 2400 satellites? (Score 1) 123

That should make the lives of anyone planning the math launches for missions quite a bit more interesting.

Personally, I hate Satellite Internet - after suffering under a fair use policy and having my bandwidth reduce to 1.2 k under Hughes, I don't see how even having 2400 small satellites in orbit can help, or envision the lag time if they made it work with a large population.

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
