"Retribution paladins could consider adding three [Brilliant Dawnstones] for +24 intellect"
Ugh.... where do you find these 'tards.
Jun 10th 2008 8:41PM lolwot? Did you not read this article? Because you completely mischaracterize it. Newell was just making the point that the best way to improve the market is to release products people want to buy--he used WotLK as an example of that.
Sep 26th 2007 5:25PM Hey, it's my field! anyway... measures of galvanic skin response indiscriminately detect arousal of the sympathetic nervous system. Stress will cause high readings, but so will thinking about that girl from High School Musical naked. Or thinking about the money you wasted on this device.
It's really easy for people to learn to manipulate these things, but is it really beneficial? Probably not.
Sep 26th 2007 1:29PM Maybe they're trying to give a reference point that a potential buyer might actually be familiar with. I think it's a safe bet that there aren't many people looking to upgrade their tablet after 2 months.

Sep 24th 2007 8:20PM Right. The term "wireless power" is misleading. As someone said above, you wouldn't refer to your USB flash drive as "wireless storage."
Anyway, this kind of thing would integrate well into something like Microsoft Surface, but right now it's pretty much a solution to a problem that nobody has. "Gee, wouldn't it be great if, instead of plugging my cell phone into an outlet, I could use an expensive placemat that plugs into an outlet?"

Sep 19th 2007 6:36PM I certainly see the importance or assessing how probable it is that the program's interpretation is correct and being very discriminating with replies. I don't see that as being anything revolutionary, though. You say it's tougher "to produce an 'I don't know' answer than to produce a statistically significant gibberish answer"--but how is your "I don't know" anything other than the program determining that none of interpretations were statistically significant enough to commit to? Sounds like you're just lowering your alpha level to me.
Sep 17th 2007 4:48PM We'd be reading a snarky comment about this product "fundamental conceptual breakthrough" if the screen wasn't from OS X.

I'm pretty sure they did. A long time ago.
