I don't think you can get insurance after you get sick!!!! Meaning I am sure there will be some sort of phase in period. Having preexisting conditions exempt, doesn't mean the insurance company has to cover costs prior to your enrolment in the insurance, your probably still gonna have to pay the doctors and hospital bills issued prior to your enrolment, nor does it prevent probationary phase in periods.

Razer, Valve, and Sixense Working On Motion Control For PC Games 126

An anonymous reader sends along this excerpt from Shacknews: "Gaming hardware developer Razer has announced a new multi-year partnership with Sixense Entertainment and Valve Software to deliver a '...revolutionary true-to-life, next-generation motion sensing and gesture recognition controller for PC gaming.' Razer, Valve, and Sixense, along with a selection of PC OEM partners, are aiming to produce '...ultra-precise one-to-one motion sensing controllers that use electromagnetic fields to track precise movements along all six axes.' Each controller will reportedly track its orientation within a single degree, and detect positioning within one millimeter. Thankfully, the device will be compatible with both current and future generation PC games."

Submission + - Canadian Gov seek access without warrants (www.ctv.ca)

pkarlos_76 writes: OTTAWA — The Conservative government wants to give police greater powers to eavesdrop on Canadians in cyberspace. Justice Minister Rob Nicholson and Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan introduced two bills Thursday that would give law enforcement much greater access to Internet communications and the personal details of subscribers. The proposed legislation would enable police to access information on an Internet subscriber, such as name, street address and email address, without having to get a search warrant." I support the legislation only if POLICE are FORCED to obtain warrants first. I don't trust Cops to not misuse it, as some bad apples will. So I write this to make the community aware before this becomes law.
