Currently, I just can't stop playing Juno First .. love it so much, I'm considering doing a 'tribute/remake' for iPhone ..

Comment Re:The Smart Devices Q7 is a good solution (Score 1) 167

I wouldn't be so quick to jump on the SmartQ7 .. the OS pretty much blows, and there are power-management issues .. the device is rather prone to suddenly shutting down if you don't play with the right buttons for a while (15 minutes), and really .. the OS is pretty bad. It'll be much more ready for prime-time when a full Android or Mer port is completed .. in the meantime, if you get one, be prepared to put up with a very weird, Chinese, Ubuntu hack ..

Hey, come to think of it, he's the President now. Why doesn't he just get someone to **make** him the perfect wirehead rig, eh ..

Submission + - Jet Powered Spy-Bats

Mattheus Spartacus writes: "Researchers have taken amazing footage of a bat flying, and are suggesting that the mammals could be inspiration for military designers producing minitaure flying machines. "Next, the researchers aim to study bats' wakes using higher-resolution cameras provided by the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research. That information could help design tiny flying vehicles, such as those being developed for military reconnaissance." Should we expect jet powered spy-bats in the future?"

Submission + - Laptop-only music performances?

An anonymous reader writes: As music production tools, computers are everywhere from recording and mixing to publishing. What about computers as the sole musical instrument? DJing or just playing mp3s aside, we have improvisers and orchestras (another) that treat laptop as a full-flavored instrument. What's the most interesting laptop-only live act you have seen/heard? And would you call these guys a boy band?

Stealth Sharks to Patrol the High Seas 331

dylanduck writes ""Imagine getting inside the mind of a shark: swimming silently through the ocean, sensing faint electrical fields, homing in on the trace of a scent." That's what the Pentagon wants to do, says New Scientist. By remotely guiding the sharks' movements using a newly designed neural implant, the military hope to transform the animals into stealth spies."
