    Intel Turns Any Wall into a Touch Screen Display with Kinect

    If I were to turn my wall into a windows 8 display, I'm afraid I would have to burn my house down to refresh the display.

    Texting While Driving FAIL of the Week

    And the bastard lived. Anyone who texts and drives (plays with the radio, talks on the phone, shaves, handles a big gulp, ect) should be sterilized before they can breed into the world. If you cause an accident while doing said things, instant and permanent removal of license in all 50 states.

    Some Ohio Schools Ban All Tech In The Classroom

    I grew up in the apple II crowd. Associates degree in c++ before it was taken over. Net Plus, A+ and certifications in hp & cisco. I now run a retail company that has one computer for checking prices. We have NO point of sale system. We have NO digital ordering system. The most advanced...

    Wall Outlet With Built-In USB Charger

    These things are an ok idea. I don't much care for energy efficiency. When these finally catch on in a big way, (new houses all having them) they will probably be pulled from the market after someone's crotch fruit sticks a car key in one and burns the house down. I imagine there is some...

    Samsung Reaches 1TB Per Disk Platter

    Hack-Proof PS3 In Development?

    LEDs Filled with Toxic Substances

    Deal with lead on a daily basis here. I have for 20 years. Never once score high on the tests they give me. No gloves, respirators, or eye wear. My dad doesn't either, he's worked at the same place for 35 years. Gun range FTW. non-updated filtration system. Grandfathered into every EPA law.
