Free for you, but probably not for some of the people you're texting. In a reasonable world everyone's incoming texts would be free, but we do not live in such a world.
I agree. My 2 year old has used this app and (with a good deal of coaching) now has a somewhat intuitive grasp of the idea of canceling things out and other basic algebra concepts. I'm pretty sure he can't explain why it works, but the intuition building has helped his problem solving.
Your interpretation sounds buggy.
A real bridge made out of Lego almost certainly wouldn't be stronger, but it would still be awesome.
This one is both awesome *and* probably stronger.
At first I thought it said installing *fractal* recognition scanners and was wondering if they were worried about people who had parts of them that looked like themselves.
I don't think I would really want those items, but if my furniture were able to lure and dispose of bugs in such a way that I would never even know about the bugs, I think I could go for that.
That information gathering is opt-in, so it isn't quite as big of a deal. My guess is that Microsoft wanted to improve their search results by seeing what users actually clicked on for a search. They thought "well, we get some good data from seeing what they click on when they search on Bing, but we can get *vastly more* data if we also gather what people click on for other search engines". That is, I'm not convinced their intent was to specifically take results from Google, but rather to get metrics on what their users found to be relevant results, no matter their preferred search engine. However, when the search terms didn't previously exist, the actions of a few gave more importance to these metrics than was warranted, and essentially imported Google's data since having some result was better than having no result.
The overlay in the correct place is not only the wow factor but exactly why it is more useful. Needing translation is socially awkward enough, but spending the extra time to figure out what part of the sign correlates with which text isn't really time that I have. It's like moving from the original world of text editing with markup to wysiwyg. (Of course, I have no idea how it does with complex sign formatting)
Well, on the bright side, at least it's better than the ~20 fatalities per year the TSA attempts to save...
Drifting a bit away from the Kinect, but as someone who participated in all 3 grand challenges, while there was certainly significant technology progress between the first and second race, it's also true that the course for the second grand challenge was vastly easier.
but... but... but... pictures of Coruscant make it seem like such a nice place to live. They have flying cars and everything!
Well, cops with anterograde amnesia, anyway.
You can generally ask the dealer to debadge it, and they'll take off all those markings for you. I know someone who does this when they buy cars.
Gah! Now you've infected us all!
My main issue with this is when I want to do both a right and left click at the same time with the track pad (or mighty mouse for that matter).
Probably not something most people need to do often, but I've run into it more than once.
