Comment A copycat (Score 1) 425

This is not new, this fingerprint reader has been worked on for several years by several people and manufacturers. Basically, this kid is doing the same thing that the Texas clock maker did, take a object apart and put it back together in a different pattern. It is not a new idea, it does not work reliably and it is just a publicity stunt.

Comment Authors goals (Score 1) 252

As Larry Coreia states, the first goal of a author should be "get paid". If you were a author what would you rather have, the sales numbers equal to 50 Shades of Grey or the sales numbers from the last National Book Award winner? What percentage of /. readers can name the last National Book Award winner? What percentage of /. readers can name half a dozen different S.F. books that they consider good reading?

Comment My notice story (Score 1) 765

Was working afternoon shift on a Friday night, there were about 15 minutes to the 12 o'clock quitting time. My boss opened my door and said "I heard you were leaving", me "yes" , him "when?", me, "in about 15 minutes, him "oh". They had all weekend to find and train a replacement. I did not have anything against my boss, he was a good guy. Now the levels above him, there were some things that made me smile when I was walking to the car after the shift was over.
