Comment Re:I Would Rather Go To Theatres (Score 1) 324

I hope I am dead before real movies are. That means real theaters. Areal movie means that you fill your field of vision with the movie, actually pay attention, enter a different world, and leave texting, remote controls and other distractions behind.

I am old enough to have watched movies like Lawrence of Arabia when there was no other way to watch. Given that there is always the risk of some of some PITA behavior from another theater-goer, the magic doesn't always work, but when it does it is far superior to any other viewing experience. Drop the cellphone and forget the seeming need for instant gratification. Wait a week after opening to go. Get there a little early. Sit up front.

Comment How to get this message across? (Score 5, Interesting) 331

At age 64, this article is timely for me. There are sites I would really like to read (example theintercept.com) but can not because they have fallen into the thrall of toney grey fonts as have so many others. In my example, I hardly think the people are bad people, but aren't they interested in getting their message out?

So I looked around on that site for a link like "Feedback" or "Contact Us", but without any luck. Perhaps it was in the same grey font.

Anyhow, I did find a "Jobs" link so I applied for a position of my own invention called "Web Usability Analyst, Part Time" and I explained my great interest in the position.

Haven't heard back.

Comment Is CCTV the right term? (Score 1) 64

From the article, it seems like the exploited cameras are IP-addressable/reachable. That does not sound like Closed Circuit TV as I think of it, with non-ethernet coax-and-like connected cameras connected to a monitoring station in a true closed circuit. I am no expert, but should we be talking about an exploit of "IP-enabled security cameras" or something like that instead?
