Assuming you believe lie detector results, it sounds like they were just measuring how honest the participants were about how many naughty words they new. And from that perspective it goes without saying that there would be a correlation between being honest and reporting more words.

Also, as regards holding back on the actual use of naughty words (which, BTW, they didn't measure), they need to consider the difference between "dishonesty" and "manners".

Comment Re:battery life a braindead argument (Score 5, Insightful) 298

It is all Johnny Ive's and his bullshit obsession for thin. Make the PhatBookPro! Yes, the MacBookPro can be made 2mm thicker to provide a 24 hour battery life or a realworld professional battery life of 10 hours. Johnny Ive's needs to just stop with thin until battery technology gets better. It seems to me that making the bottom panel modular would solve all the problems. If HP and Lenovo want to keep getting thinner, let them. Their touchpads and keyboards suck compared to the MacBookPro. Oh and bring back the glowing Apple logo on the back of the lid. What a dumb marketing move to ditch that.

Comment Congratulations,your PC is now a governance device (Score 3, Insightful) 172

The camera "sees" the user and even knows which user it is seeing. The camera then locks the screen immediately when the user is not present.

How long before the computer "sees" the user and notifies the police that they can pick up their known dissident. I mean, really, given the kind of governance we're about to enter into, this (not to mention Alexa-like audio surveillance "features") are the last thing I'd want on any equipment in my home.

And no, I don't have anything to hide. But conversely, I also don't use the restroom in the middle of 5th Avenue. Privacy is a thing, even in a world full of morons who think it isn't.
