3D Blu-ray Spec Finalized, PS3 Supported 157

Lucas123 writes "The Blu-ray Disc Association announced today that it has finalized the specification for Blu-ray 3-D discs. The market for 3-D, which includes 3-D enabled televisions, is expected to be $15.8 billion by 2015. Blu-ray 3-D will create a full 1080p resolution image for both eyes using MPEG4-MVC format. Even though two hi-def images are produced, the overhead is typically only 50% compared to equivalent 2D content. The spec also allows PS3 game consoles to play Blu-ray 3-D content. 'The specification also incorporates enhanced graphic features for 3D. These features provide a new experience for users, enabling navigation using 3D graphic menus and displaying 3D subtitles positioned in 3D video.'"

Funny that most of this conversation is about creating more laws and not much about ideas for ways that technology can solve the problem.

Mobile communications are here to stay, there is no going back and there is no way you are going to stop people from answering their phone.
Why do cars not yet come with bluetooth?
This would be simple and inexpensive. A mic in the steering wheel and the sound comes through the speakers.

I stopped texting and driving once I got an iphone because I can not send a message while looking at the road, while previously I could use T9 without looking. But how about phones start offering text-to-speech and speech-to-text?
There are plenty of ways that we can make communicating on the road safer without trying to criminalize people.

The only problem I had is kernaloops giving me an error constantly that was really a non-error about ECC not being enabled on my bios.. But I think that was fixed today. It does bother me that they really seem to push the 6 month cycle. If they have a good stable release out, it's ok to take some extra time to make sure that the next release will be just as good.

Comment I'm affected too. (Score 1) 431

I have about 100 sites hosted there right now that are offline, but none worth so much that a day or two of downtime will affect me so much. The worst part is getting phone calls from people who I host. and try to explain in as many ways as possible that No, I can not personally go to texas and fix it, and that there is absolutely no alternate way for them to get their email right now.
