Comment: Re:Because This Worked Out So Well for the 3DS/Wii (Score 1) 15

Agreed. Tango is way more than a gyro control for a 3D game - we've had that technology for years already. Real-time mapping of 3D geometry is amazing technology; stuff that has a huge number of uses, the least of which would be gyro-controlled 3D gaming. Kinda surprised they made such little use of the technology in the demo. The mapping part of the video at the beginning was by far the most interesting part.

There are probably only a handful of employees left, trying hard to get that big payout. With few employees left at the company, fewer people to split the winnings with (not that they would have anyway). No way are they going to settle for scraps when they've held out this long!

Big money, no whammies, STOP!

Aside from the feckless fist-shaking at the air, what can the average person really do? Public-key encryption? That gets mentioned every time, and the general consensus is that it's too much work for the average person. Is there any other action that can be taken, or are people just too lazy to care anymore? Maybe there should be more purposeful acts to disrupt the lives of average citizens, to shake them out of their stupor. Wake people up. Perhaps those in power have realized that keeping the populace happy & sedated allows them to do whatever they want. Maybe a full belly and a scratch behind the ears is all we need to become pets to the people running the world now.
