Nintendo Upset Over Nokia Game Emulation Video 189

An anonymous reader writes "Nintendo is investigating potential copyright infringement by Nokia during some video demos of their N900 phone, which can be seen emulating Nintendo games. Nintendo spokesman Robert Saunders says: 'We take rigorous steps to protect our IP and our legal team will examine this to determine if any infringement has taken place.' In the video, Nokia says, 'Most publishers allow individual title usage, provided that the user is in possession of the original title.'"

I taught myself to type, from the age of 4, and I do not (repeat do NOT) use the "home keys".

Result: 65wpm, and I've been typing for many hours a day for decades with NO TRACE of carpel tunnel.

thus, not really a fan of the party line typing techniques, and I hope my children never learn those.

Besides: "high school"? What the hell? Like kids won't have tons of typing experience by then?

Better idea still: adults teaching classes where kids can learn to text.</haha>

Same here. I taught myself how to type as a child, and it's radically different from the formal method of typing. I later became proficient in the "correct" method of typing, but still prefer mine.

The reason is my method is much more comfortable, by far. It's slightly, slower than the "correct" method, but I can endure typing like that for hours with zero fatigue.

Some of my fellow workers and students claim they already show signs of Repetitive Strain Injury, while I easily type 3-5x more than some of them (in time and amount) in a day and have none of these symptoms.

but to have much proof that free will doesn't exist, you would have to find a way around the uncertainty principle.

How does the uncertainty principle have anything to do with free will as you or I know it?
Just because a system is unpredictable to an outside observer does not exclude that same system from being deterministic.

Additionally, you would have to prove that neurons rely on QM as a major part in their function. Especially in aiding decision making.
Unless I have been grossly misinformed, all evidence so far suggests that neurons do not rely on QM, and their behavior can be modeled using classical physics.
