Submission + - Forbes Names Microsoft's Steve Ballmer names worst CEO

_0x783czar writes: Microsoft haters gleefully have latched on to the latest scoop that a Forbes columnist has named Steve Ballmer the worst CEO. It seems that the article has leveled some strong accusations of irresponsible and ineffective business practices; claiming that Microsoft has not progressed over the last 12 years of Ballmer's leadership.

Submission + - Morse Code can now be decoded from blinking patterns in REM sleep. (lsdbase.org) 6

IAmCoder writes: "I have been training myself to blink in Morse Code patterns and have started writing a new plugin for LSDBase that can decode the patterns in hope that I can transcribe live from within a dream one day.

I also designed a headband, that will be known as a halograph FM, with a motion detector that is sensitive enough to pick up the heartbeat and can thus easily detect rapid eye movements. And I wrote a program, Lucid Scribe, that plays audio tracks when it detects that I am dreaming. I can sometimes hear the songs in my dreams and act on that knowledge – by flying, for example.

Here is a video of the first few characters that I can type just by blinking. Relevant XKCD in 3, 2, 1."
